Both Beatty and Martin Bormann had been brainwashed into believing or disbelieving in a particular topic. Beatty and the rest of society had been grown up only remember that books were bad and owning them would be a disgrace. However, there were some citizens in their society who disobey these rules which resulted in them getting ‘fixed’. After visiting Montag, Beatty had explained to him that they have lowered the kindergarten age year so they can catch just about every child and teach them at a young age. Lowering the kindergarten age, shows the different ways that the government tries to keep everyone from books keeping them from thinking for themselves.

He accused Mister Robinson of raping his daughter because he saw him doing something with his daughter, but he did not hear Tom’s side of the story he only wanted to think in his own way. He used his preconceptions about black people to judge the black man, even if the man was innocent.

After Bob Ewell, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson, attacks the children and dies in the attempt, Atticus refuses to cover it up because he, “‘Don’t want him growing up with a whisper about him, I don’t want anybody saying, [...] Sooner we get this over with the better’” (Lee 366). Atticus would not let the local sheriff say that Jem did not kill Bob Ewell because he thought that Jem did at the time, and wants his kids to know that they should be treated like the rest of the community. Before that, when Atticus was defending Tom Robinson, he was telling the jury that the opposition had lied because they were, “‘confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women’” (Lee 273). Even though Scout and Jem were not supposed to be there, they learn how racism could kill an innocent man, and through that learn why Atticus had constantly reminded them of why equality is so important. With them learning about equality, they also learn about the town’s racism and how it should not be included in their definition of a person, another mini-lesson taught by Atticus to instruct his kids about
So these kids were charged as adults, but that 's been because the court didn´t ruled the law until 2012 that they can’t be tried as an adult. We should be doing more than that they should be tried as an adult because they are killing innocent people and that others are saying that they are kids, but really most kids who kill someone knew what they were doing that they have thought about killing people. Some of the reasons why they should be tried as an adult is because here in America itself a problem cause everyone can get a weapon so easily and kids are very curious, so they just grab the weapon thinking it 's a toy and can just kill someone. Like in the article “On Punishment and Teen Killers” by Jennifer Jenkins, it’s
Are you satisfied with the killing? We believe that a peace treaty should be distributed. Without your help it only gets worse and worse everyday. More and more people die, more kids get brutally murdered in front of their families. And all because you are too scared to call it a Genocide because repercussions could develop.
This can be shown through the servant as he is threatened and questioned about his past, and Teiresias holding his tongue in spite of the King's cruel remarks. The servant disobeyed the order of the King to kill the newborn child. “ I pitied the baby, my King, And I thought that this man would take him far away” (64). Though the servant was ordered to kill child he could not bring himself to kill the child. The servant risked his life to save a child that had no personal affiliation to himself.
If they would’ve had said no they could’ve been killed or tortured to death. In most cases the group leaders only want strong soldiers who follow all commands and don’t hesitate to kill a person. If a child refuses to kill, the leaders could torture them for as long as they desire. The Child Soldiers cooperating with the leaders and doing what they are told to do will put them on their good side and won’t put their lives at stake. Doing what they’re suppose to do and showing how they’re not
Ender fears teasing from the other kids now that he has no monitor because they could now say what they like and could now hit him if they wanted to. The monitor no longer protected him, “hearing what he heard and seeing what he saw.” (Card, page 6) He no longer had someone to rescue him when he was in trouble or harm. 4. To forestall vengeance from Stilson and his gang, and to keep them from taking him in a pack the next day, Ender decided to viciously and repeatedly kick Stilson, who laid helpless on the ground, in the ribs, crotch, and in the face. He then warned the rest of Stilson’s gang not to mess with him anymore, and walked away.
He punished the citizens of Wallachia for the smallest crimes, by impalement. Women would be impaled for no reason, but were told they weren’t working hard enough. His unfair torture and killings led to constant fear and panic from the people. He would even put a golden chalice in the towns just to test people, to see if anyone would attempt to steal it so he could punish them, but no one dared, for they knew what awaited them if they even thought about it. No one would even talk bad about him, for fear of being executed.

If they were someone who was trying to escape but ended up being pulled into the war and forced to kill others so they could survive; those people should be granted with at least the amnesty of not being charged for war crimes. Even though the things done were horrible, and the amount of people the children killed may or may not be a very large number, often times the children were forced to do so, and it wouldn’t be fair to put the child on trial for the crime, instead of the people threatening the
