The characterization of Blackie is another way the author shows his belief that people aren 't just good or evil. He characterizes Blackie as not a completely good person. Blackie is not completely good since he is the original leader of the Wormsley Common Gang, which means he encouraged people to commit crimes. Despite not being completely good, he still has some morals as proven when he did not physically hurt Mr. Thomas, which he could have. Blackie 's action by encouraging the gang to commit crimes and Blackie has morals proves that Blackie is good but not completely good.
He recognizes that the duty of law enforcement is to not only enforce the law for others but it is also to abide by the laws they are there to enforce. Furthermore, He also believes that the police force are harming the citizens by not obeying the law. “He[Mr. Chiu] has trusted that those with authority will operate morally and will honor, even revere, the truth, values he upholds as well.” (general 239) Those in authority are corrupt and Mr.Chiu attempts to use logic and reason with them. He is still a law abiding citizen but his frustration causes him to grow impatient with those in charge. “ Now you can admit you are guilty,” the chief said[...] “We won’t punish you severely provided you write a self-criticism[...] Mr. Chiu cried.
Adichie uses theoretical concepts such as hegemony, discourse, and performance to illustrate that the central themes of race and identity in her novel, Americanah, are intrinsically linked. In Americanah, while Ifemelu and Obinze are growing up in Nigeria, they are confident in who they are. However, as they both leave for America
We can see that this issue is not completely resolved. In the rape case, even if Serpico personally do not use violence to solve the problems but does not mean that another policeman would not. Frank Serpico is merely a patrolman and no power to interfere other policeman’s action. Serpico’s actions are ethical and believes in non-brutal methods to catch criminals.
Its insincerity was clear to be seen”(Burgess 141). Throughout the process, it is evident that Alex doesn’t truly lose his interest in violence, as he still tries to physically harm several people among the staff. His only reason for avoidance is self interest. He doesn’t want to experience the pain his body has associated with violent actions. In a way, he is about as good as someone donating to a charity to get their name in an article, his actions are completely hollow and selfish.
Although John Brown knew that violence was not the way to back up his actions because he had saved many slaves without anyone getting hurt he did so anyway. The raid on Harpers Ferry was an event where John Brown and a few of his followers used violence for a cause that could benefit them. They tried to take items that could help form a slave rebellion. John Brown didn’t overuse the control of violence, he only did it to try and help the save get the freedom he thought they
The way I look at it is that he did go above and beyond his duty as a police officer in saving this man’s life, because he is not a fire fighter. I believe that the main cause of Officer Jones’s actions was his dedication to keeping people safe. Jones stated in the papers "I don 't really see myself as a hero; I was just doing my job," (Testa, 2014). The typical duties of a police officer are often: (1) keeping the peace; (2) law enforcement; (3) protection of people; and property; and (4) to investigate crimes. Jones however went well above his duties not once but twice, second time being when a man nearly drowned to death in a
So this is why Fidel enthusiasm and decision and leaving it there not wanting to do anything with the criminals was a great choice. Overall, the ideas in the article “The forgotten victim from Florence and Normandie” are agreeable and correctly handled in the situation. Many Ideas in the article were very meaningful. Lopez article was very good, glad that he mentions Fidel’s Lopez case. Not Everyone would have handled the same way Fidel did in such nonviolent way.
The police officer’s behavior was tolerated by the married couple because the husband knew that nothing would’ve been done if they did call and report him. Throughout the movie, he treated minorities in an unfair way and he would get away with it. He was not punished for his behavior. Karma did come back when he had to save the woman he molested. Since no sanctioned his behavior, he just kept treating minorities
The criminal justice system, like any system is designed by human beings and hence possess the possibility of a loophole for criminals. Needless to say, the system was introduced in order to maintain law and order as well as provide a safe community for the people. If this is true, then why do we get to witness crimes, some beyond the horror of one’s imaginations and later find that the court decided to rule in the accuser’s favor by making
Both works hold the same purpose of explaining how New Orleans came to be the city it is today, but they execute it in different ways. This is because of the people responsible for telling the stories, the approaches they take in how they decide to present their information, and the depth they include for certain historical and cultural events. An exploration of the stories each book tells is key to obtaining a full understanding and appreciation of the comprehensive history of New Orleans. The first work, Beautiful Crescent: A History of New Orleans, written by Joan B. Garvey and Mary Lou Widmer, offers a look into
The author gave good evidence that provided a human resource to find out the link between media coverage and “copycat” shootings. (Warren). The strengthens of this article is that Warren gave good evidence towards his argument. Also, his weaknesses is that Warren did not give the reader more detail towards his
