Lewis couldn’t have taken both the shots himself, it would either leave him incapacitated or he was assassinated purposefully. The medical examiner said since the bullets got lodged into his head he had to be shot from a far distance. Pricilla Grinders statements weren’t adding up, every time she was questioned about what happened that night she had a different story. After Lewis’s death, Pricilla Grinders husband, Robert Grinder had a great amount of money. When Lewis was known to carry money on him.
Therefore, Juror Nine was able to conclude that “‘that no one can prove he wasn’t. He might have been at the movies and forgotten what he saw. It’s possible. If it’s perfectly normal for this gentleman to forget a few details, then it’s also perfectly normal for the boy. Being accused of murder isn’t necessarily supposed to give him an infallible memory.’”
For Rainsford, killing Zaroff could have been just to win “The Most Dangerous Game” or for survival because General Zaroff would have definitely killed Rainsford if he saw him again. Was Rainsford’s murder justified?
Georgie Milton did something not many people have the guts to do, he took the life of his best friend to save him from the torture that awaited him, but, he took the life of another man and he took this life with the intention of murder. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, there is no difference between euthanasia and murder; and to this indictment, George Milton has pleaded not guilty. If I am to prove him otherwise, you must find him so. Lennie Small has been described to us as a caring giant. He had no bad intentions; and it is fair to say that our witnesses have provided us with sufficient evidence to support my argument.
The St. Valentine’s Massacre does not explicitly occur in The Great Gatsby, but an event similar to the massacre destroys Gatsby. Returning from New York, Daisy murders Myrtle Wilson by running over her with a car. When Gatsby is asked who committed the crime, he knows Daisy was driving “but of course [he will] say [he] was” (143). Gatsby decides even though he was not the one behind the wheel, he will take the fall for Daisy.
Hamlet is wrong because he gets himself killed and he was not in his right mind. His conscience did not kill him but it sure helped kill him because he wanted to act tough and not back down. An example is ophelia kills herself after going into madness because of hamlet. Hamlet was not only hurting/killing himself he was also hurting the others around him too.
Dr. Mudd’s Punishment Dr. Mudd’s punishment was too harsh for his involvement with John wilkes Booth. Mudd had not known about Booth planning to assassinate the president. In the article it states, “The doctor rose from his bed, assisted Booth, set the fractured bone. But he did not know, he had no reason to suspect, his patient was a fugitive.” Dr. Mudd had no idea of Booth’s plan and if he did he would have been weary of Booth knowing that he could be on the run.
I couldn’t believe they were going to charge him with murder just because of one eyewitness. I was disappointed that law enforcement didn’t bother getting a search warrant for his house or even talk to his family. I couldn’t believe Michael Glove beat Brenton just to get him to confess because Michael just wanted to end the case. Also, if law enforcement would have just got the purse and check for fingerprints then everything would have been handled differently. Instead, they thought it was easier to charge him with murder and ruin a fifteen year old life.
George and Lennie had already run from one place because of Lennie’s actions, and now they had to be on the run again. The question arose that a life of running from bad things was not a life at all. Also, George knew that if the ranchers were to catch Lennie, they would kill him as revenge for killing Curley's wife. At the very least, George would be thrown into jail and he due to his mental disability, he would not even comprehend the reason for his incarceration. George’s compassion for Lennie made him believe that there was no other choice but to shoot Lennie himself preventing Lennie from suffering the at the hands of the
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not.
Howard once again did not pass this prong because he was in control of himself and the situation. Howard says he did not have a goal during the attack, but he has unconsciously been thinking about raping her from the weeks before. He has been sexualzing Stacy ever since she turned him down by supplementing the strippers. Howard had a goal, without planning it ahead of time. He has been constantity waiting for the day to see her again and he took the opportunity because he knew he would probably never again.
Those who believe that O.J. is innocent point out the fact that the murder weapon was never found. They believe that if O.J. had committed the murders, he would have had to take his bloody clothes and murder weapon through airport security and given them to Robert Kardashian knowing that the bodies could have been discovered before he landed and the police could have been waiting for him in Chicago (Dershowitz 135). This would have been too risky, showing that O.J. could not have committed the murders. However, on the night of the murder, O.J. got into Mr. Park’s limousine with a small black bag.
The assassination of president Kennedy is arguably one the most debated conspiracies in American history. In the fall of 1963, president John Fitzgerald Kennedy along with his political advisers were preparing for the presidential campaign. While he had not officially announced his candidacy, it was rather clear that Kennedy intended to run and seemed optimistic about his chances of re-election. As part of his campaign, Kennedy traveled westward through nine different states in less than a week to speak about natural resource and conservation efforts as well education, national security and world peace.
Eric Rentschler, a Harvard University professor of German cinema and history, has written countless pieces of works surrounding the Third Reich era. Books like West German Film in the Course of Time (1984) displayed how the Germans used cinema to portray their lives during the late 1930’s up to the time of Hitler taking power. His article on Jew Süss (1940) discussed how Veit Harlan supplied a survey of historical occurrences with the use of anti-Semitic features. He also displayed the real face of the Jewish population, and used dissolves and shadowing to illustrate the approaching cruelty and mass killings of European Jewry.
