How on earth could he drop from Brotherhood to this in so short a time?” (Ellison, 434). Eventually the police arrive on the scene and the audience along with Clifton and his dolls disappear around the corner. When the invisible man found Clifton again, he was being followed by a police officer who pushed Clifton as he walked him down the street in custody. After being repeatedly jostled, Clifton turned around and punched the police officer. The police officer recovered and then turned around and shot Clifton in the chest.
Additionally, the American colonists felt that the implemented taxes and laws were unjust. There were many unjust laws and taxes forced upon the colonies. In document two, the author states that Great Britain has the “legal authority to regulate the trade of Great Britain and all her colonies”. He believes that the raising revenue from the trade was never intended, and that the British Parliament never had the intention of implementing duties - duties before the Stamp Act - for the sake of raising revenue. However, the author felt that the Stamp Act and Townshend Act and the other acts from the Stamp Act onwards were unconstitutional.
Injustice is demonstrated in the article from National Geographic when Victoria, a teenager who is abducted by Serbian men and is forced to do things against her will for years, doesn’t receive any help until she takes matters into her own hands and escapes. In the text it says, “They led her on foot into Serbia and raped her, telling her that she would be killed if she resisted… was bought and sold by different brothel owners ten times over.” When speaking of her journey, Victoria says, “Banja Luka, was the worst- all the customers were cops” (Cockburn 2). This happens for years until she finally has a chance to escape whilst being four months pregnant and can seek the help she needs. It’s clear that nobody bothered to help her, seeing as many of her customers were cops, the very people who are supposed to prevent things like this. A very similar thing happens in To Kill a Mockingbird, when Bob Ewell accuses Tom Robinson of raping his daughter Mayella, but Atticus proves that it was most likely Bob who did it.
Some Attica prisoners began to identify themselves as political prisoners rather than convicted criminals. These events were the perfect concoction to create a four-day mass riot. The Monroe Fordham Regional History Center’s “Attica NOW!” collection contains interviews of Attica inmates who recount daily mistreatment from guards and rules that were abused by guards to punish inmates. These interviews also talk about the lack of educational opportunities and the fact that they were forced to perform slave labor (Slade). During the 1960’s and 1970’s President Nixon declared a war on drugs causing the demographic of criminals to shift as Attica was now a dumping ground for African Americans and Hispanics facing drug charges, causing Attica to become overcrowded, and increased the already poisonous racial atmosphere in the prison.
Some of these verbal incidents included, “don’t make man hurt you,” “wake up my brown friend,” “whoa they look freaky as shit,” “your life is no more,” and “I’m going to blast your face off.” The violent dialogue was repetitive and mostly unnecessary. However, the verbal incidents were useful to continue with the established character profiles. The violent verbal dialogue also helped to develop the theme of lost in translation. The episode followed the format of the show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, including the final home reveal. The theme of lost in translation encompassed most of the physical and situational violence within the episode.
Ralph, alone and afraid. Is a victim of Mob mentality. The other boys, in fear of the beast, have all sided with Jack, ganging up against Ralph to kill him. Mob mentality is everywhere in Lord of the Flies, and some of the most memorable moments are the most obvious examples of Mob Mentality. Mob mentality is portrayed many time throughout Lord of the Flies, for example, when Ralph is hunted, Simon is killed, or the choir follows Jack when he leaves the group.

The movie was not necessarily bad; however I was quite displeased with the lack in detail which the book had strived in. The disappointment began with the casting Homayoun Ershadi as ‘Baba’ or Agha Sahib. In the novel Baba seems untouchable – unreachable – because he towers over ordinary men. Needless to say, he also towers
