Moore told police she believed Wuornos had been killing people due to the accumulation of new items and cars, but did not want to question Wuornos any further fearing she would become an accomplice to the crime. “Moore later showed law officers where to find the gun. Grooves in the gun were similar to markings found on the fatal bullets, though an expert testified that the particular grooves were fairly common and could be found in other weapons” (Wuornos v. State, 1994). The gun evidence alone would not be sufficient enough to
One eye-witness claims that he saw this fatal attack, but “didn’t want to get involved” (Gansberg). This proves that the bystanders should be blamed. This man clearly didn't want to get in this murder. In depth, this quote thoroughly explains that this person is cruel and selfish because if he would’ve at least tried to help, Kitty would've had the chance to live. Just like this eyewitness, there have been many more selfish people like him in the community.
He also had a conflict when he regrets that he did not care for others when he had a chance to. Montag had a internal conflict when Beatty killed himself. This connects to the theme because it shows how corrupt the society is by technology as an entertainment. Clarisse, a shy frail girl that lives next to Montag, helped montag realize what a technologically advanced mindless society his was. She talks to Montag and asks him “Are you happy?”(pg.7) He never gave a response and wonders about it.
Though they are not represented as the villains, in the movie it seems like they were the bad guys trying to break the relationship of two people who love each other. Like if the police were trying to suppress their “rebellion” to the system by imposing its absolute justice over two young lovers, who wanted to live their lives to the fullest without worrying if they violated the laws, and ended tragically death by the hands of insensitive officers. As a former film critic asserted about the portrayal of the police in the film, specifically the officer who was chasing Bonnie and Clyde, “The irony is that Hamer [the officer] is forgotten while Clyde and Bonnie live on. Hamer stood for something: the idea of right and the guts to make it stick. Clyde and Bonnie stood for nothing, except perhaps infantile nihilism, unformed, incoherent, vicious” (Hunter 24).
Mr. Diaz believes “this stipulation was that stop and frisks did not involve police force, such as handcuffs or guns” (1997). Meaning, that initially when officers used stop and frisk procedures they did not detain civilians and/or hand cuff them or draw a weapon on them just to perform a minor stop and frisk procedure. Now more often than not, officers are detaining minorities of color and even pulling them over by use of weapons. This behavior is more heavily focused on minorities and African-American
Her work is also a statement against her critics, a “a cathartic expression of the artist 's private, and perhaps repressed, rage.” Artemisia’s life and career have not been widely respected at this point, and her anger towards the structure of Renaissance Italy has been building. In response, she painted Judith carrying away the head of Holofernes with her maidservant, a fitting closing to the assassination of Holofernes. The way she depicted this scene would be emulated by the artists who followed her for years and years to come. Rather than showing a weak squeamish woman, Gentileschi showed power and command that highlighted women. The maidservant is carrying the head of Holofernes away in a basket, rather than previous depictions of his head in a sack.
However, if you do have a gun you won’t use it for anything wrong, but anyone who steals our gun can. In conclusion, it might be true that it’s will be impossible for a criminal to steal a gun with so few people owning one, it's important to focus on that it's not
In the short story “The Necklace,” people get to experience a character with a several character flaws. The story is written by Guy de Maupassant, about a self-obsessed woman, Mathilde Loisel, and the problems she has to endure due to her own faults.

Ultimately, Mathilde’s character is portrayed as ungrateful, cowardly, and insecure. There are many things that depict Mathilde as an ungrateful person in this short story.
When Mersault’s lawyer is talking to him and it is said that, “The investigators had learned that I had “shown insensitivity” on the day of Maman’s funeral” (Camus 64). The court later uses this as a potential motive against Mersault because it shows his indifference to death and how he hadn’t shown remorse after either death. His indifference also earns him the title “Monsiuer Antichrist” because he seems wicked in the eyes of the magistrate for not feeling any remorse. Also, the lawyer mentions how his thoughts and persona are off putting and the legal dealings would be much harsher if he spoke what he thought to the magistrate. Mersault said, “He made me promise I wouldn’t say that at my hearing or in front of the examining magistrate” (Camus 65).
We tend to listen to what the media says about everything, the overpopulation means less jobs, homes and resources that are fully necessary for society. At first it seems Montag is happy since he is being told what to do with his life, but Clarisse comes in and starts questioning if he is really happy and he realizes he isn’t. Montag then comes home to his wife Millie in an attempt to commit suicide, he then starts questioning if he actually knows his “wife” at all. This choice that his wife made, greatly impacted the relationship they had before the incident. Realizing that their relationship is meaningless, and they don’t love each other at all.
Holmes may be the only support that I have in the argument. While he has nothing to say in defense of my appeal to a higher law, he is able to give me some pragmatic support. The whole purpose of the law is to be able to predict the outcomes of our legal system so that we can avoid the full force of the state coming down on our heads. In this respect I am safe. When I go through the light, because no one is there to see me, there is no danger of the force of the state coming to bear on my situation.
People who don’t help others should be punished because they don’t fulfill their ethical responsibility and someone could lose their life because of it. If we see someone who needs help, do we stop? There is so much suffering and poverty out there. In the article “ Can the law make us be decent” by Jay Sterling Silver, the author have talked about how oblivious people should get punished for not required to do anything to help when someone is in danger. People should be punished for not assisting others in an emergency because someone life will be at risk if there’s no help.
On the point of officer safety Riley argued that the data on a cell phone could not be used as a weapon to endanger officer safety or to aid the arrestee 's escape from custody. An officer could physically search the cell phone and it 's case for weapons, such as a razor blade. The State countered that the suspect 's cell phone could be used to call associates to aid him, which would affect officer safety. Allowing the officer to search the cell phone without a warrant might give him/her warning that someone is coming. On the point of protecting evidence from concealment or destruction, Riley argued that once a cell phone has been seized, there is no need for the officer to search the digital contents to protect it.
In The Crucible Arthur Miller shows his theme of how the easier evil or the harder good can affect your life and others around you. Arthur Miller shows this through the example of john proctor signing the confession but then later choosing to stick to what is right and pay for the price for other people’s sins. This affects the people of the town on how anyone can be killed no matter the power and that death isn’t for sport. John Proctor is a well-known name in the town of Salem, and when he confesses to witch craft it doesn’t sit right with him. He comes to realize that “it is my name” and he only gets one during his lifetime.
Finally Victor, the one who sat there and did not speak up for Justine, felt the cold shoulder from society too when he was accused of murder. Following Victor’s whole trial he was only saved because his father spoke out and someone from the justice system saw how the evidence did not point to him. Showing how dysfunctional and irresponsible society and the justice system at the time was what Mary Shelley intended. Commenting on these issues was what the novel proved effective on showing just how dysfunctional the government and their neighbors really
