Jay started to get paranoid about the situation, Made up a story with Jenn about what happened, and called the police. Except Jay’s story is wishy-washy because it isn’t real, everybody was always saying how much of a liar Jay was, and Jen’s story doesn’t match up at parts because Jay doesn’t have it together. The only way for him to be sure that Adnan was the one to blame, is to make up a story about how Adnan was angry at Hae. But how does Jay know all this information? Jay has to put himself in the story also, put himself in the position where he can’t get in too much trouble, but in a position where he knows everything.
I have recently read the short story “Priscilla and the Wimps” by Richard Peck. In response to the prompt, I do not believe that Priscilla’s treatment of Monk was justified. When dealing with conflict, it is crucial not to resort to physical violence, otherwise it may further escalate the conflict. Technically, if you resort to physical violence to try to stop bullying, you are just as bad as the bully. In the story, Monk was picking on Melvin (Peck 2), who was Priscilla’s closest friend (Peck 1), and Priscilla ended up putting him in a hammerlock and then locking him in a locker for a whole week (Peck 3).
There has always been a fear of black male sexuality, perpetuated by stories of white women being raped and defiled by black men. When Mayella Ewell makes the charge of rape, Tom's judgment comes not from the facts, but the stereotypes that clouded every jury member and every citizen of the town. They do not take the time to understand Tom, but fear and hate him unfairly. The only mistake he made was that he took pity on Mayella and often helped her by helping her in the household chores that he needed help in. He pitied Mayella for her deplorable condition and so helped her whenever possible.
Of course, many people think Adnan Syed is guilty of murdering Hae by contradicting himself, by saying, “I am in here for my own mistakes.” He might have been on the edge of confessing his guilt until Sarah caught this and asked what he meant, and quickly recovers from his mistake. Adnan also slips his tongue by saying that he wants people to only look at the evidence, and not his personality. If I were convicted of a crime I would certainly like to have my personality be looked at, if I were innocent. So they could see what good I have done.

Which is, under the circumstances that he learned that what he did was wrong and did not do it again. Martha Stewart, a woman who is famous for her books and cooking recipes, went into jail for selling illegitimate stocks, but she changed for the better and never did that again. People may say that Don John can change, and he just needs some time to learn from his lesson. However, Don John’s lies harmed the people around him when he committed a serious crime that shamed Claudio, Don Pedro, and Hero. Even after he knew what he had done wrong he “fled from Messina.”
Although people viewed Gacy’s actions as unforgivable, he managed to bring closure to families by helping solve other murders. CONTEXT Despite Gacy’s troubling childhood he was able to be a role model in his community. According to Biography.com Editors, during his early life his dad was an alcoholic,“ who would beat the children with a razor strap if they were perceived to have misbehaved.” Gacy’s inspiration to give back to his community came from his childhood and him not wanting others to suffer like he did. Moreover, Gacy would start his career as a construction contractor living in a small town located in Chicago, “he made himself known in his community for his political work and help to charitable causes” (Clarkprosecutor).
Two days later... Having endured an hour-long grilling from Fuller about Booker’s disappearance, Tom exited his superior’s office feeling more than a little dispirited. Astute enough to know something had happened at the fraternity, Fuller had badgered him relentlessly about the hazing case, but Tom had remained stubbornly tight-lipped and had revealed only the bare facts, much to his captain’s indignation. But there was a reason behind Tom’s reticence. Without Booker by his side, he had come to acknowledge his rape as his own private hell and not something he could readily share with his friends.
Feminists believe that these arguments are absurd and that rape is considered one of the most extremes ways of showing male domination. The previous issues raised can be related to the movie because as we all know, Paulina was raped and tortured, however, the government was not planning on arresting the people who did those crimes. It’s clear that the situation was not considered a big deal and and that’s why they aren’t pursuing it and are instead hiding the incident. Rape is not something easily brushed off as we can see by Paulina’s reaction to when she recognizes the friendly doctor as the one who raped her. In one of the first
Sometime later, a police officer showed up to her grandmother’s home and announced that Mr. Freeman, her rapist, had perished.

Just my [her] breath, carrying my [her] words out, might poison
Proctor begins his pleas by stating he needs assistance to get the favorable view, especially if no one steps in to show mercy. And how the Magistrates already are delusioned by the devil yet they know they are innocent. Although they were imprisoned they were still being accused of being seen making no sense to him. Then brings in how the Carriers sons were tormented till saying the “truth” but how they blamed their mother making her serve nine weeks. Even so his own son did not want to “confess” and could have continued to be tortured if no one had stepped in, which I believe if someone with power had stepped in since the start they would have not gone on that mad killing of
Atticus tells the judge that here is no way he could’ve raped her when he can only use one hand. Robert is the guilty one of raping his daughter, Tom is only placed with the charge because he is a black man.
