The third code is family law. In law 195 it says, “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off.” The son should be punished however, cutting off his hands is very extreme. There is no age listed in this law and what if it was a child? In law 129 it also shows that the laws were unjust. Another reason is “If a married lady is caught [in adultery] with another man, they shall bind them and cast them into water.” This is also a very harsh punishment.
Victor also allows Justine to die for the murder of his younger brother because he’s afraid of what people will think. “My tale was not one to announce publicly; it’s astounding horror would be looked upon as madness by the vulgar”(83). He’s more concerned with what will happen to him, someone who actually had something to do with William’s death, than to Justine, who is completely innocent. Lastly, the monster says he will leave Victor and his family alone if Victor makes him a female companion, but he can’t even do that. “I thought with a sensation of madness on my promise of creating another like to him, and trembling with passion, tore to pieces the thing on which I was engaged”(180).
Examples of both just and unjust can be found in the area of Property Law. The first law is “If a man has broken through the wall( to rob) a house, they shall put him to death and pierce him, or hang him in the hole in the wall which he has made.” This law is fair, because the law is protecting the weak from the strong which Hammurabi was trying to do. This law is very harsh and it would prevent someone from theft if they were going to be put to death. The Second, is “If a man has borrowed money to plant his fields and a storm has flooded his field or carried away the crop,... in that year he does not have to pay his creditor.” This example shows that Hammurabi’s code was just because the a citizen should not be punished for things that are out of their control. This law does not say that the man does not need to repay the money, it just gives them time to recover from disaster.
He ended up getting himself and his friend hurt believing he could take on more than twenty men. He made his injuries worse by being delusional enough to think a servant girl looking for her lover was the daughter of a rich man going against her parents to be with him. He even set free a bunch of criminals thinking that their free will was being taken from them. There was an underlying reason that made some sense for these actions but were wrongly executed. He is a hero who lacks basic common sense and does whatever he thinks is right not what actually is
For example, “SEEFATHERHEISBIGANDSTRONGFATHERWILLYOUPLAYWITHJANEFATHERISSMILINGSMILEFATHERSMILESMILE". This part contradicts with the nature of Pecola's father which associates with weakness and hatred. The chapter also explains Cholly's miserable childhood; the denial of his father to him and his shame at the hands of white officers when they oblige him to have sex in front of them, the thing which led him to rape his daughter twice in order to take revenge of this painful memory. Consequently, the parts of Dick and Jane story are used by Morrison to show the irony in the character's

Adultery, being a sin forbidden expressly in the seventh holy commandment, was a crime that was regarded with great shame from the community, as well as the disapproval from God. It was a transgression that not only betrayed the faith of a spouse, but one that demonstrated the priority of an individual (the sinner) over another. Proctor, in his weakness, betrayed his faithfulness to his wife Elizabeth and indulged in an affair with Abigail. Proctor notified Abigail that he will not falter again, telling her “Abby, I may think of you softly from time to time. But I will cut off my hand before I‘ll ever reach for you again.
Great Depression, racial injustice, woman rights, all of this was going on during the time period that To Kill a Mockingbird time frame was based on. So much was going wrong with the United States during that time frame, it was a miracle we were able to dig ourselves out of that kind of hole. The worst part of the 1930s was the racial injustice. Mobs would kill innocent black men, jurors sent them on death role for crimes they didn 't commit, blacks were scared to walk alone for the fear of being killed because of their skin color. "Based upon fears that “lynch law” would be invoked after news of Mr. Gunn’s confession spread, he was taken to jail in a neighboring county for protection.
This stops us from addressing the real sources of the problem, for example people’s attitudes to violence and to relationships between men and women, also known as gender relations. Myths take away the dignity and humanity of the survivor, causing her more trauma and pain and lowering her chances of recovery. Myths also prevent many rapists from being prosecuted. It is vital that all of us in society reject these myths, so that survivors may fully recover and more rapists be convicted. Note: Many of these myths and facts refer to rape between a man and a woman and the ideas that people have about this.
This would be putting more animals in danger because people would just want money and they would not care about the lives that they are putting in danger. Additionally, according to Simon Denyer, “ On March 7 poachers decided that they were going to slip into a Paris zoo and shot a rhino several times.“ As attitudes change, Chinese lawmakers seek better protection for rhinos and other endangered animals by Simon Denyer.They are killing animals because they think that people would not notice and they just want money so they think that they can do whatever they want and kill a innocent animals.People only want money and when it comes back to the animals people do not want the animals to be happy or alive they just want what comes from the animals like medicine, food, and money. But that
