She realizes this implicitly by saying that people “would never have been aware of possible evil lurking nearby if Miss Strangeworth had not sent them a letter” (Jackson 226). She knows that she has to stave off evil and it was her “duty to keep her own town alert to it” (Jackson 226). This shows how she justifies her evil action, by claiming that she is protecting the townspeople from any evil that comes their way. Miss Strangeworth believes that if she does not write her letters to her fellow townspeople then the town will succumb to evil. Miss Strangeworth’s vision for her town is to be evil-less and the only way to accomplish this is if she writes letters to them even though the letters are hurtful and contain
This is an important concept because it explains that officers should not follow society and pressure from the public and media but follow the laws that our country. This a good thing to have when dealing with persuasive criminals and individuals. Both officers and civilians benefit from this principle because it protects both parties. Officers also need to know the laws, so they can stay away form trouble and not be deceived by public persuasion. This is a good thing to have in America today, because many criminals will say anything to get out of punishment.
Sandy Banks is bothered by the injustice of police officers towards possible innocent victims. Because it seems like if officers rely on shooting at people as their safest option, Banks demands better training to help solve this issue. Police officers being caught on camera doesn 't changes the fact that the victim will become wounded, or pass away, yet, in most cases officers are not held accountable for the insensible act. In her article, "Horrific videos aren 't solving police shootings, but better training might" Banks asks for better training for police officers, as she developed strong pathos with details, great logos with logical solutions and consequences, but a weak ethos by not mentioning her credentials and the other side of the story.
This shows the attorney assumed that Mrs. Peters was bound to the law because she is the wife of the sheriff; however, he did not account that women were extremely underrepresented in the government because women could not vote or serve has juries. On the other hand, Mrs. Peters did believe in the laws when she states, “The law has got to punish crime, Mrs. Hale” (Glaspell, 191). This shows that Mrs. Peters strongly believe that the law will punish the crime that the murderer committed. However, Mrs. Hale did hold a different opinion about the law when she saw what Mrs. Wright went through when she married Mr. Wright. Mrs. Hale said, “I wish you’d seen Minnie Foster... That was a crime!” (Glaspell,
Even if he robs with good intention, he is still thief. Katniss however, helps those in the districts by essentially taking down the government. While few people could relate to Katniss, they may admire her more. Robin Hood is an outlaw hero because he helps people, but he still carries the title of a thief. People may be less likely to admire him in this
Beatrice is Divergent, she has different traits and emotions compared to other people in the society. She was in Candor, a courtroom where she can let her anger out and no one can judge her for what she has done, especially from the ones she loves. When the attention was pointed to her, she was scared to tell the full story about what was bothering her. Beatrice thought to herself, “Safe places, where confessing that I shot one of my best friends would be easy, where I would not be afraid of the way that Tobias will look at me when he finds out what I did.” This quote shows that people shouldn’t hold secrets in, but to let it out even how bad the secret is. The message of the book was to convey the audience to always tell the truth.
The commonness of public executions would be appalling today; however, it encouraged the citizens of England to stay away from any form of crime. Queen Elizabeth’s laws did not mean death was imminent for all criminals. Pregnant women could receive pardons, as killing them would mean the death of an innocent child. Priests could also avoid execution, but only once. Elizabeth’s efforts to reduce crime during her rule were extreme, but affected the public in a way that made England a safer
However, although the arguments of prostitution legalization proponents often seem reasonable and practical, there are a lot of points, which can support the opposite views. The first argument against legalization of prostitution is that it does not give any serious benefits to women involved to this industry, but provides a lot of advantages for pimps, traffickers and the whole sex industry at large. Moreover, legalization just converts pimps into businessmen, and brothels into legitimate venues. Consequently, such kind of sanctioning all the parties involved to sex industries gives them the other names, but do not guarantee some real, factual changes. Some experts consider that in this case decriminalization is the best strategy, but it should be an advantage for women, who, no matter which way you look at it, are entitled to exploit their own bodies as they want.
Despite the fact, rather than any sensitivity or Christian forgiveness, she is absolutely unaffected by her death which she could have prevented ‘Her own action-her own sin-that was what drove her to it…none of this would have happened’. (Christie91). The other issue is corporal penance. Justice Wargrave sits in a court of law, he gets the chance to decide on the crime that somebody commits are discovered as innocent and tends to live or discovered as blameworthy and face the death penalty. But the question is, what right do an individuals have to choose the destiny of others?
By what she says, Miss Gates becomes very important to the plot of the story. Her words help the reader understand how people feel about prejudice at that time. Miss Gates does not think that the people in Maycomb are being prejudiced because of how they are treating Tom Robinson and his trial. “Over here [America] we don’t believe in persecuting anybody” (Lee 329) Scout does not understand how Miss Gates can say that because of how people treated Tom Robinson and how his trial went. 2.
When it comes to hearing or speaking the truth do you believe it can help you or destroy you ? The author , Reginald Rose , he is showing me that when it comes to a trial it 's the truth that matters, however, not everyone will feel the same some care about the truth and some don 't. The people who are not truthful are the ones who don 't care about anything or anyone. Therefore, During the trial, they discuss what had happened from the murder some point out the evidence (Rose 15) juror 8 explains the el tracks and how the women across the street couldn 't have seen the body fall with the passing of the el Tracks. Accordingly, to Juror 6 he tells the others about the women who saw the boy kills his father from her bedroom window, but she
In this case, Dee Roberts didn’t except the plea because she knew that she was innocent and had not committed the crime. Therefore, I don’t think that it was appropriate for the prosecutor to try to threaten her to take the plea by saying that the court will prosecute her to the fullest extent of the law. I am sure that if Dee Roberts knew that she was guilty, then she would have took the plea. Especially,
This was portrayed in the documentary by one of the police officers who said you might not achieve a good or desired result sometimes but a good result might just be that you have successfully disrupted the situation. Like in most of the cases the girls went back home. Their parents were not persecuted but they became aware that they are being watched by the authorities. Social worker is a relationship-based profession nevertheless it is their moral duty to challenge injustice in the society. I learnt in today’s session that cultural diversity can create ethical dilemmas for social works and in cases there would be no direct answers.
