Capote’s Last Ditch Effort to Help Perry Although in In Cold Blood, Truman Capote is illustrating the aftermath of the murders, his prime motive is to humanize and create sympathy for Perry; therefore he asserts that the Law is biased and cruel to those who commit crimes. By utilizing amplification when describing the jury present at Dick and Perry’s murder trial, Capote is able to reveal the jury’s dangerous bias against the two. It consisted of “half a dozen farmers, a pharmacist, a nursery manager, an airport employee, a well driller, two salesmen, a machinist, and the manager of Ray’s Bowling Alley. They were all family men (several had five children or more) and were seriously affiliated with one or another of the local churches” (Capote 273). Elongating the

Reverend Hale from the beginning to the end is almost a completely different person; this is shown by him coming into the story being the authority on how to find witches, then he is shaken greatly by Rebecca and John’s arrest, and finally by him not having religion but keeping faith.
Upon reading the end of “The Lottery”, there is no doubt that one can see a clear picture of humanity and brutality it can cause. The act of stoning is violent, it is a killing which allows the killer to see and be seen by the victim. Throughout history stoning has been used, “So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first” (The New King James Bible John 8:7). Additionally, the brutality and horror highlighted by the fact that the stoning requires the participation of the entire village, including family members of the victim and children, it also includes the selection process as well. Not one, village member is exempt from this violence, or blameless

This novel includes properties such as surprise endings, suspense and an exceptional detective. A surprise ending, also known as a plot twist, is extremely important in a mystery. After all, if one knows exactly who the guilty person is at the beginning of the story, then what is the point of continuing reading? In A Morbid Taste for Bones, Brother Cadfael, and the reader, believed that Peredur had something to do with Rhisiart’s death, as he acts extremely guilty, or even Prior Robert, the one with the most motives to kill him. But in the end it was the Monk Columbanus who kills Rhisiart.
Confessions of a Guilty Mad Man The motive that made guilt manifest within. A lesson of guilt taught with fear, and the outcomes of how guilt can make a man go mad and confess. This is what Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart” teaches us. Within the beginning of the story the narrator thinks very highly of himself telling the reader that he was very careful with getting away with murder. “You should have seen how wisely I proceeded with what caution-with what foresight-with what-dissimulation I went to work!
It was when Solomon first discovered he was a slave, after waking up in chains. He had been over-fed with alcohol the previous day by his captors and was made to fall into a deep, long sleep. The slave auctioneer comes in almost immediately and announces to him, just to reassure him, that he (Solomon) was a slave. He is introduced to the world of slavery by merciless beating. This shows a deep contrast between his status the previous day when he was merrying, wining and dining before his two unsuspecting captors.
He also sold slaves like his father and punished them when he had too.

Hughes ended up dropping Manson because of defending Van Houten, who Hughes thought could convince the jury that she was under the influence of Manson.

Manson’s followers showed no remorse during the trial and even laughed during talk and photos of the crime scenes.
Real life example of this is a black man here in Atlanta, that killed his own son for drawing on his new Jordans. The logical solution to this was to take nail polish remover and a wet cloth and clean it. Without thinking first he ended his own son’s life and now in police custody, but if he thought about it, his son might have lived to be successful and bought him all the shoes he wanted. Now we should all know that in our community, we value materials over human life, then once you actually hurt or kill someone you’ll want to place the blame on someone. Once you have done that the hate has carried on from person to person and create problems.
“This, by his voice, should be a Montague...What! Dares the slave come hither covered with an antic face, To fleer and scorn at our solemnity? Now, by the stock and honor of my kin, To strike him dead I hold it not a sin,” (Act 1, Scene 5, Lines 53-58 ). This scene shows that Tybalt will take any chance he has to kill a Montague, as long as it 's not a sin; thus also showing that he has such a strong sense of honor towards his family. Seeing how Tybalt is described in the original play, both directors made sure that Tybalt’s performance would be as similar to how he’s depicted in the play, to establish Tybalt as the main antagonist in their films.
