Introduction The Ford Pinto Car was introduced to the market in 1968 with a gas tank placed between the rear axle and the rear bumper, which makes it very sensitive to explode from accidents even at low speeds. “More than two dozen people were killed or injured in Pinto fires before the company issued a recall to correct the problem” (Bazerman and Tenbrunsel 2011). Ford company adopted the utilitarian approach, by analysing each action taken separately and therefore, valuing the human life and safety in monetary terms. In return, Kant’s ethics of duties should be applied to this case. According to Kant, “categorical imperative” should be applied for every moral issue, and maxims are developed to guide our decisions.
In the first five seconds of the advertisement we see a Caucasian father teaching his son how to drive in an empty parking lot. Then we see the boy at the DMV taking his drivers license and when he finally passed he walks out the doors smiling ear to ear holding up proudly his driver license card.

Driver 's license took two tries.” The next scenes that follow, display the boy happy because he’s driving alone, but when he pulls up home to his drive way he is alarmed because he has hit the garage door.
While I was regaining my thoughts, I saw the red taillights, glowing as red as the sun, coming from of my dad's truck and bright white headlights coming from a car that was headed right towards me, as I was lying on highway. Thankfully, I jumped up as soon as I realized what had happened to me, trying not to get run over by the car that was heading straight at me. Freighted and still a little shocked, I just stood there like a deer in

Danforth expresses his opinions on lying when Mary Warren enter his court to confess herself and he begins the conversation by saying, “How were you instructed in your life? Do you not know that God damns all liars?” (Miller 101). Through this statement he clearly demonstrates his belief that lying will send a person to Hell. As the story progresses, Danforth and many other officials begin to realize that the entire situation in Salem progressed to far and honest people will continue to die unless they can convince people to lie in order to save themselves.

The jury had a murder case that dealt with a nineteen-year-old man that was accused of murdering his father from several people. If the man was found guilty of the crime, then he would be sentenced to death. Each one of the jurors came to their own decision deciding whether or not the defendant was guilty of the crime or not.

In order for the jury to make a decision, they needed a unanimous vote.

Supporters of guns also believe that mental illness is the main cause of both mass shootings and firearm suicides. Michael Stone, a physiatrist at Columbia University who studies mass shooters and their personal histories reported that twenty-two percent of the mass shooters were mentally ill, which was only fifty-two out of the 235 killers (Lopez). House Speaker Paul Ryan declined to support the proposal to create a special committee to study gun violence in early February 2018. He claimed, “This is not the time to jump to some conclusions.”
