The Serial Killer Adnan Syed’s case was skewed against his innocence in the Hae Min Lee murder Case. The police and detectives came up with unreasonable reasons for Syed’s will to kill Lee, and they constantly backed up their theories with invalid testimonies of others. However, many of the theories against Adnan could be supported through phone records and alibis. There is one issue with the conviction of Syed. Syed repeats his innocence by saying, “I had no reason to kill her” (Koenig Episode 1).
Although Rachette knows that he is in trouble and asks Poirot to protect him, Poirot refuses due to his personal vendetta. This was a clear foreshadowing of the murder of Rachette who was later identified as Casseti, a notorious murderer. Although Casseti had been tried for his wrongdoings, he exploited his money and resources to avoid capture. The novel then shifts tone, with the detective and his partner starting to explore the clues to find the murderer. In the end, it is concluded that not one, but all thirteen suspects were associated in the murder.
(Elliott) When a college was using a book as a requirement some of the students decided to not read it due to some of the things that the book had in it. The writer Keane said, “Surely those college students have seen 10 billion images more obscene on the side of a bus than the few raw or suggestive drawings in the book.” The author also said other important things about this book and they are “We have just found new and different offenses to be outraged by, and most of them can be found in the books we teach.” and also “An unfortunate commonplace in our educational institution these days is the notion that students must be protected from certain literature because it could damage them or trigger hidden traumas.” These quotes are so true in the sense that these students need to learn about some of these topics even though they may not be comfortable with it because it may be a part of society that they need to become more
Dick from In Cold Blood maintained that he was less guilty and did not deserve the death penalty. In stating this, Dick was not correct that he was less guilty. There are justifiable proofs that diminish his chances of being less guilty. These proofs are found within the book and can be represented through his demeanors and actions prior to and after the night. Richard Eugene Hickock (Dick) in In Cold Blood is just as guilty as Perry in that he had clearly displayed his intent for killing the Clutter family.
Kenneth Bianchi displayed signs of having dissociative identity disorder during the sessions he spent under hypnosis. It was under hypnosis that Kenneth took on the for of Steve who was an aggressive offender who had no empathy for the murders he had committed, Steve was able to look at all the photos and point out what he had done without feeling or showing remorse for his actions. When conducting the psychological assessments Kenneth was not able to recall what had happened between the switching of his personalities. When Kenneth switched from Steve he could not recall how the filter was placed into his cigarette or how his rosary was placed on the table. People with Dissociative identity disorder will feel like they have jumped time due to them not being aware when they are in another dissociative state, they will have no recollection of what they have done or where they have been.
Murderous instinct likely has not even been studied yet but, in this case, the trait would not have been found to be genetic because neither of the parents of the children were killers. Their environments may have pushed the two towards murder but ultimately, killing the Clutter family was a choice, not a genetic trait, and not entirely due to the environment either. There was something in them that twisted and told them that it was alright to kill other people; Perry’s sister even said “they shared a doom against which virtue was no defense" showing that she felt that whatever caused Richard and Perry to kill was out of their control (Capote 185). Ultimately, this example from “In Cold Blood” showed that some behaviors were not due to genetics or the environment but were almost entirely due to choices made by the
“Now was the first time I begun to worry about the men-I reckon I hadn’t-had time to before I begun think how dreadful it was, to myself, there ain't no telling but might come to be murdered myself yet, and then how Would I like it?” This is the first time Huck question himself about the cause and effect of the other people. After he realized that he could now make a plan in order to save lives even though it’s considered a murder. “I didn’t do him no more mean tricks, and I wouldn’t done that one if I’d a knowed it would make him feel that way” (Twain 65). Huck felt terrible for playing a trick to Jim because now he considers Jim as a human too. This is when Huck started to admit that what he was doing was wrong because he started to analyze how his actions were affecting other people.
In this case, in justice of the victims (two deceased persons) who were murdered, the eye-witness and the knife with blood matches found in Mr. James Lane’s residence are biggest evidence which make the accused to be found guilty. However, the weakness in the criminal justice process is that, the stage of bail hearing might be misused and a person who found guilty would find way to get away from the punishment. Hardest part to bear is, if there is no evidence appropriate to justify the crime committed by the accused, then there are chances for the case filed to be discharged. The accused who had really committed murder might not get sentenced. This could be said to be the weakest link in the criminal justice
OMAM At the end of the book Lennie killed curly’s wife, by snapping her neck. All because he wanted her to be quite. He didn’t mean to, he just didn’t know his own strength because of his mental illness it keeps him from knowing reality. So I think George shouldn’t have killed him. George shouldn’t have killed Lennie, because there could have been another solution to what he did.

Joint enterprise is growing problem in our modern society were teenagers are sentenced because they were present when the offender delivered the fatal blow. There have been arguments for and against joint enterprise and whether the law should stay or be abolished this is because too many young people are being condemned for just witnessing attacks or observing illegal activities. I do believe those who took part deserve to be punished too, just not as rigorously. Personally I believe that the offender who commits the crime should therefore be held accountable and should be punished for it. This leaves us wondering: are the wrong people going to jail?
If they are going to plan out a crime, then later go on to brag about it, there is something obviously wrong with them that is more than just being a minor. Every situation and case is different, and should be treated that way. If you send a child to prison expecting them to be able to change by themselves, you would be very wrong. They are at a stage where they are the most malleable; they take so much from the influences around them. So when you put them in a place filled with criminals, they’re going to change from children to
