He is said to be the son of Cain and because of that he was labeled from day one (Sanchez). It could be argued that he kills people who are at the hall because they are all having fun and socializing, but he isn’t able to do that so he punishes those who can. Readers see both sides of Grendel in his backstory because he is evil, but he is not evil for no reason, like

Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them. Another reason why he was a villain because he killed members of his family so that he would become the ultimate successor to the throne. This should never be how a king becomes the ruler of his kingdom, ever. Even though I believe that Alexander the Great is a villain, others may think he was a hero. They may think that because he had conquered so many other nations.
In the book, “ The Outsiders” by S.E Hinton it talks about how johnny killed bob, but we are discussing if Johnny is innocent or guilty. In my opinion johnny is guilty because he didn 't have a reason good enough to kill bob. On my next paragraph I will give you reasons on why he is guilty of bob’s death.

“ Now you can admit you are guilty,” the chief said[...] “We won’t punish you severely provided you write a self-criticism[...] Mr. Chiu cried. “ I won’t write a word because I am innocent.”(Ha 472) Mr. Chiu still believes that his plead of innocence will help him win his freedom. He does not realize that he is not in a place of influence or power to sway their decision. His complaints have no impact on those in charge of him. “If he were able to, he would have razed the entire police station and eliminated all their families.”(Ha 476-477) Mr. Chiu has become a truly changed man.
The first, and most personal, aspect of his plan involved the murder of his master Thomas Prosser, and Absalom Johnson. Whatever his reasoning was, Gabriel’s plan depicted these two as clear enemies to his goals, forcing them to pay for their crimes. Later, after Governor James Monroe had been captured, the plan called for the death of the Richmond townspeople—not including groups such as the poor whites—until they gave into his demands. Gabriel, by this point in time, called for political, social, and economic equality with white elites, a vision now far beyond just labor rights. Gabriel’s plan was more than an attack on merchants, it was at least an attack on white elites, and possibly those who could at least afford to live somewhat comfortably in the city.
A psychopath is classified as someone who shows no remorse and has no conscience, while a sociopath has some sort of conscience and sometimes shows some guilt or remorse ("What's the Difference Between a Sociopath and a Psychopath"). Psychopaths do not feel sorry for other people (“What’s the Difference Between a Sociopath and a Psychopath”) and Kuklinski certainly did not feel sorry for any of his victims (“Married to The Iceman”). During an interview with HBO, Kuklinski stated that he probably could have killed his father and wouldn’t have felt bad about it ("Richard Kuklinski The Iceman Mafia Hitman HBO Interview 2001 (Part 1)"). Richard Kuklinski also showed sociopathic traits. He only showed remorse when talking about his wife and kids ("Richard Kuklinski 'The Iceman' Part 12 of 12").
The fact that Ripley kills people, shows that he knows himself that what he is doing illegal and wrong. It also proves conclusively that he knows how he is and that he tries really hard to preserve himself. Towards the end of the movie, when Ripley kills Peter, Tom Ripley’s identity also dies too in this act of self-destruction. In the last frame, the audience sees a full profile of Tom’s face, one side in light and the other side in darkness. This represents the profound theme of man’s duality - The intuitive and psychological confusing nature of mankind to be twofold.

Even with a fresh memory, Lennie couldn’t remember to not drink clean running water. If George were to run away with Lennie in order for a higher survival chance, there would be a warrant or bounty out for the arrest or death.

Different from the concept of playing game and brutally killing people, Vonnegut explored a different way to show it totalitarian power by making everyone handicapped. People who are too smart, too pretty, or too talented are required to wear a weightier handicapped or a hideous mask to cover up their face. Due to insecurity from the actual handicapped people for not being normal, Vonnegut create a society where they can fit in and where those who are not handicapped can learn to embrace others who aren’t.

The government secretly control these people by installing devices and gears onto people to slow them down and to romantically match them with people who are not naturally gifted.

Throughout the story, the reader becomes aware of the inherent negative perceptions of the misfit.
