The book is called “Indian Killer” because of the way that he kills. The book really wants to send the message of anti-Native American violence and racism. “Listen,’” the detective had said.‘“I don't think there was anybody in that valley with you, but psycho bastards like the Indian Killer thrive on this kind of attention. They feed on it, breathe on it. Don't give him what he wants’”(Alexie).
We begin to know him but what’s worst is we begin to feel for him. Everyone has been disgusted at one point or another when a shady lawyer is able to get a murderer cleared of charges. This film first goal is to entertain. However, twisted that may seem given the film’s constant urge to disturb but it is also a vital cultural artefact, using the serial killer genre to unshackle the deep moral problem today. When a morbidly obese person sit next to us in a public place, we wonder how they let themselves get that way.
On both sides, there is a person of power who is ethnocentric. This individual has the power to make decisions for a large number of people and other followers do not question their word. For the natives this individual is Neehatin, he believes that the black robes are stupid and a danger to the community. Also that they are demons who cause trouble and only talk about death. Neehatin feels Laforgue’s presence in the tribe is a danger to them all.
As societal crime rate continues to escalate, the epidemic of homicides and mass murders remains a prevalent social problem. Thus, the emergence of serial killers has caused alarm among many criminologists and psychologists. Serial killers usually have an impulsive desire to kill for no particular reason, which makes it difficult for law enforcement and criminal professionals to understand their motives. Thus, the motives of serial killers have led to heated debates and challenged the nature vs. nurture theory. Many scientists believe that serial killers are genetically incline to commit murders, while criminologists associate violent crimes to childhood and surroundings.
I don’t see it as an attraction to Marbuk himself; although it might have been; but the fact that he encompassed the culture that she had been torn from and was instinctively drawn to. Aboriginal people were often cast as property, being thought as less than non- Aboriginal Australians and the only way they would be accepted was to share in the ‘white’ interests, beliefs and lifestyle. Both were punished for breaking the tribal ‘Skin Law’, something of which Jedda had no idea about but was punished by the tribal females while the ‘death song’ was cursed upon Marbuk, who had known that his actions of kidnapping a young Jedda would anger the tribal elders by “taking a girl of the wrong skin.” Despite the fact Marbuk had started to lose his mind, Jedda saw him as her only protector, she knew she could not live out in the bush on her own. Upon stating that she could not survive on her own, he took it as an idea for him to kill her, so he could live, thus lifting the death song curse. I believe that if Jedda would not have been so drawn to Marbuk, the mysterious ‘savage’ man if she had not been assimilated into white culture by Sarah
The only thing Zits new was that these two figures were famous to Native Americans because they had helped them against “evil Indian tribal government dudes.”(47) Consequently, Zits’ heroic perspective of them Is shattered when he sees them kill a person while helping the FBI. Zits seemed to have high expectations for these two men, sadly he realizes “they aren't freedom fighters or anything like that. They don't care about protecting the poor and defenseless.” (50) Zits’ is disappointed that the story he thought to be true has a bloodier prequel. This hurts his ideal Native American desire because it complicates his understanding of Native Americans. Zits’ sense of justice also played a significant part of his ideal identity, his understanding becomes even more disarrayed when he sees his Native American father take revenge in the second flight.
“My eyes have seen these acts so foreign to human nature and now I tremble as I write.”. "[There are] endless testimonies [that] prove the pacific and temperament of the natives... but our work was to ravage, kill and destroy." He was so determined to meet the needs of Spain 's royal family that he disregarded basic human nature. "The admiral was so blind as those who came after him and he was so anxious to please them [royal family] that he committed irreparable crimes against the Indians". Columbus was quite more devious and had more malicious intent than we are previously taught.
In Law 195 it states, “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off.” This law seems, as well, too harsh. The son should get a punishment but getting your hands cut off for hitting his father would lead to son being scared. In conclusion, Hammurabi 's code is unjust. The evidence shows that the Personal Injury Laws didn’t protect all people equally, the Property Laws punishments were too harsh, and the Family Laws can cause someone 's death. Most of Hammurabi’s laws are not just to the people or society of Babylon.
Things went from bad to worst after the commanding officer shot the medicine man and threatened to arrest Geronimo, an Apache leader. The scene reveals the inner conflict and struggle experienced by one of the Apache scouts, between his duty as a soldier and his belief that the Apaches have the right to be free. He also felt that the oppression that was exerted by the white people on his race was very unjust. This inner conflict ultimately led him to shoot his commanding officer, knowing full well that he will be prosecuted and executed. One of the main aspects that made this scene so intense was the producer intentionally playing with the emotion of the viewer by attempting to place the viewer (point of view) in the mindset of the Apache scout.
An example of this would be when the truck driver almost ran over Tom. <> Moving on, Tom had to sacrifice his life to protect and provide job security of others due to the tendency to be blamed for the accidents because of his racial profile. In this case, “if the truck [were to] go over, guess who gonna get blamed for, the Indian or the driver?” (Kinsella 200) The chances of the Natives being accused is a very high probability. This proves that the set of extreme measures required to secure your job for the Natives are ridiculously unfair and that there safety is being compromised. In “The Composition”, Pedro is worried for the safety and stability of his family.
Violence and Racism have erupted like a volcano in our society. Not only has it become a problem with the public, it has now become a problem in law enforcement. The very people who protect the public are mistreating citizens of their own country. Racist police brutality has become a controversial topic of modern times, with police killing innocent citizens. The stories have kept popping up so much that is starting to be recognized as a major problem.
He was raised according the morals of society on the reservation, which could not be more different from the way people are conditioned in the Brave New World. The conditioning makes the citizens of Brave New World absolutely disgusted by old age, injuries and families (153). In the same vein, John was disturbed by the science of the Brave New World such as all of the twins created through the Bokanovsky process. Simple differences such as these between John and the people of the Brave New World guaranteed that he would never be able to truly belong in that society. This is reflected by the fact that John was always referred to as “the Savage” or “Mr.
