In those lines, Hawthorne quickly turns the questions back to Martha as if he knows that he does not have the evidence to support these claims. This is what adds to the hysteria. The court is convicting people of a crime without the proper evidence and they are basing the verdict solely on the statements of others.
Due to this, battered women and other victims of intimidation should not be subject to the same legal system that failed them once or more before. The intimidation felt in the courtroom by those who are viewed as powerless and inferior causes a vicious cycle of intimidation in the one place when the people coming from intimidation should feel protected and secure. The same feeling is felt by battered women. The male is favored over the female, and there is no justice, which is the exact opposite of the intention of the court system. This is exactly what Sandra Lee Bartky is arguing and due to these reasons I accept her argument to be
Also, in attempt to tell the truth about Abigail, John Proctor admits to cheating on his wife with Abigail, but Elizabeth lets her fear assist her in lying. John Proctor tells everyone in the court, previous to Elizabeth arriving, “she [has] never lied” (III.891.). With everyone now knowing that she does not lie, it makes her trustworthy and believable. Deputy Danforth then brings Elizabeth in to confirm what
No, they are with me. But they keep their tongues in leash.” (Page 507) When Antigone says this it shows how she will not say that people are mad at her for breaking the law, she will not give in and say she did something wrong. When Creon is told something and he choses not to believe it he says the other person is wrong and that they do not know what they are saying, this is just like Antigone.
To have this argument in mind, the question of the corruption of the legal institutions can be related back to the novels. V.I.'s choice to leave her job as a public defender to become a detective was done as she believed that as Lawyer she did not change things for the better.6 This change of career can signify two things, on the one hand she can believe that the world cannot be changed as she states that “I don't have such grand ideals as a detective. Not only do I not think I can save the world; I suspect most people are past redemption. ”7
People are willing to argue with the fact that she is guilty. They, being her friends say that she was with her. They believe that she would have no notions to kill her husband. Her friends tell the police that she was a chick, not a murderer, she was not capable of murdering anybody. Her family claims that they had contact with her at that time.
I stand by Barbara Kingsolver’s argument that all families that have been faced with divorce are not necessarily “broken” families. Depending on the reasons for the divorce, the result will be what the family makes of it. I appreciate how the author made it a point to state that “The Prince Charming Theory of Marriage” is not comparable to a real life marriage, seeing how no one has a perfect relationship such as that. Kingsolver then compares divorce to amputating a gangrenous leg; suggesting that no one wishes for these things to happen, they just happen.
Hale knows if they confess they will serve jail time but at least they will not be hung (1222). Hale explains to them that if they lie and confess, God would not be as upset with them as he would if they gave up their lives for being honest. Hale’s doubt of witchcraft is present because he knows the women are not guilty but wants them to confess. He feels very guilty for being apart of the deaths of so many people and will do anything to save anyone he can. In a way, he has abandoned his practice in an attempt to try to save people 's
Because of sexist opinions of the time, many people believed that a woman had no power to create change, especially in government since she could not vote. Women themselves believed this societal expectation, and although Grimke does not reject society’s idea of femininity and womanhood entirely, she specifically rejects their supposed political incompetence in a rebuttal. Using evidence from general and specific political movements in England, all of which were greatly aided by the support of women petitioning the government, Grimke assured her audience that “When the women of these States send up to Congress such a petition our legislators will arise, as did those of England, and say: ‘When all the maids and matrons of the land are knocking at our doors we must legislate.’” (Grimke, 192) This summary of her somewhat vague past points is similarly nonspecific; however, this is still effective since simply alluding to historical events rather than explaining them was sufficient for an audience that knew more about England and its history than contemporary Americans do today.
Within the book, there are instances which state that women can’t/won’t do a certain task/thing because of reason/excuse. One example of this is when Scout asked Atticus, the Finch’s father, about why people in Maycomb couldn’t sit in the jury stand and mentioned Miss Maudie, a gentle woman who never lets others forget her thorns, Atticus replied, “For one thing, Miss Maudie can't serve on a jury because she's a woman-" (188). He says the reason for this is, “I guess it's to protect our frail ladies from sordid cases like Tom's. "(188) and also that he, “...doubt(s) if we'd ever get a complete case tried—the ladies'd be interrupting to ask questions. "(188).
When it comes to hearing or speaking the truth do you believe it can help you or destroy you ? The author , Reginald Rose , he is showing me that when it comes to a trial it 's the truth that matters, however, not everyone will feel the same some care about the truth and some don 't. The people who are not truthful are the ones who don 't care about anything or anyone. Therefore, During the trial, they discuss what had happened from the murder some point out the evidence (Rose 15) juror 8 explains the el tracks and how the women across the street couldn 't have seen the body fall with the passing of the el Tracks.
Many patients have also claimed to feel pain during their operations. Justice Sonia Sotomayor and three other justices acknowledged that the district court relied on a fake expert witness who quoted from unknown sources and made claims that did not align with actual test data, but ultimately voted against using midazolam. Overall, it was decided by the majority that the prisoners failed to establish true evidence to prove the three part execution drug violates the Eighth Amendment. Justice Sotomayor explained, “In contending that midazolam will work as the State intends, Dr. Evans cited no studies, but instead appeared to rely primarily on the Web site www.drugs.com.” In my opinion, I think the Court’s decision was justified because there were only a few cases where the anesthesia only served to paralyze the victim while still allowing them to feel everything.
Once someone steps in the court room to oversee a trial of this caliber (or any caliber) they must not and will not let the media dictate their perspective of events. Scott Peterson’s jury saw the burden of proof provided by the prosecution and were left with no doubt in their minds by their own deductions he was guilty. The Casey Anthony jury on the other hand took all of the evidence into consideration, but they still were not completely convinced she was capable of the charges being filed against her, leaving them no other decision but to provide a not guilty
1. In my opinion, I do not think that prosecutors should use be able to use their power to threating individuals to take the plea barging. If an individual know that they have not committed a crime and is guilty, then the person should not agree to the plea. I believe by agreeing to the plea is like saying you have committed the crime.
I agree, carefully searching for issues and questioning the MD would have prevented this issue. Obtaining the patient 's neurological status and checking the drug levels would 've prevented this problem. This is an indictment on the whole team, not just the nurse. I believe that each profession working on this team should 've noticed the issue. Also the phrase "I 'm ok with not making a big deal out of this" sounded nefarious and unethical.
