If Jacob did not kill Ben Rifkin, I would assume another student did such Derek Yoo. Derek was a very mysterious kid that did not want to give any information away, perhaps because he killed Ben and told his parents. When they got Jacob as the suspect Derek’s parents probably told him to not speak a word about it. Derek would have tired to put the blame on Jacob as much as he could without seeming like he knew a lot about the murder, like a regular witness. Derek did say a couple times that Ben was a mean to people he didn’t like such as Jacob and himself.
Fatherland Analysis In the world we live in today, there are many governing forces that surround and help us thrive.

This appears man times throughout The Crucible. One time is when Mary Warren is getting questioned about pretending and she then accuses John Proctor. She did this because she was scared for her life. That show weakness because she cannot handle being questioned. Another example of weakness is when Abigail Williams runs away from Salem and robs her uncle.
He had a terrible history with Holmes, since Holmes seduced both Conner’s wife Julia and his sister Gertrude. In the quote, Conner claimed that he warned Emeline, Holmes’s stenographer, to stay away from Holmes. However, she refused to follow his warning. I found this short passage to be interesting because of how
Nevermind the fact that Fortunato remains unaware of the wrong that he has thusly committed. Perception is reality: In his reality, the injury that he has been unfairly dealt, can only be righted with vengeance. Montresor considers himself to be the long suffering innocent party who has suffered “the thousand injuries” (Poe 14), of Fortunato. The matter then, is not only to get revenge, but to right they wrongs committed against him. Montresor is a well-layered character, filled with an unbridled hatred that drives his need for revenge.
Lancelot’s punishment is not obtaining the Holy Grail because of his affair and not being pure (Kennedy 63). Family betrayal has detrimental effects because a person will lose their family’s trust and they will be viewed a differently. Morgan displays this when she tries to kill her husband and her son sees her and his view of Morgan changes. Fraternity betrayal also leads to unfavorable effects in Malory’s novel because the character loses their closest friends
He “hung it because (he) knew in doing so (he) was committing a sin” (Poe 2). In carrying out this action knowing it was a sin shows how the man's mind is unstable and not in good standing. No person in their right mind carries out an action and wanting to sin while doing so. Moreover the short story “The Devil and Tom Walker” by Washington Irving as well depicts the reoccurring theme of psychological issues. With is wife having been missing, “Tom Walker grew so anxious about the fate of his wife and property he set out to seek them” (Irving 327).
In To Kill A Mockingbird they make it a struggle for the jury to choose the right decision of who’s guilty and innocent, or the skin color in which they like or dislike. Mayella lies about Tom Robinson because of her bad decisions she’s made. A decision Mayella has made was just having Tom Robinson doing work for her. She should know better that it wouldn’t settle well with her father. After Mayella had Tom help her get rid of items, she began to like Tom.
It seems that belief and a religion are two underlying themes in this story, what with the weeping religious statue. Since Cahal knows what he did was a mistake, I believe he does these actions to make up for all of the bad things he’s done in the past, including killing the dressmaker’s child. In the beginning of the story, Cahal lacked religion and was skeptical and judgemental about other people’s beliefs. He was even willing to use this vulnerability against them: “He could charge them fifty euros. Pouldearg there and back, Cahal considered… but never mind that for fifty euros.” His greed and selfishness is what
