If Romeo didn't kill himself he would have kept killing until all the Capulets are dead then he would start blaming his family for it then start killing them. When all the Montagues were dead he would start killing randomly until being caught and killed. The quote “Romeo, the love I bear thee can afford. No better team than this: thou art a villain.” , says Tybalt. Now what Tybalt is telling us is that Romeo has killed before but has only been sentenced to be a villain and not to death.
Enough.” Macbeth goes out of his way in an attempt to change fate and orders the murder of Macduff’s entire family. “He has kill'd me, mother: Run away, I pray you!” This drives Macduff to take revenge by killing Macbeth fulfilling the prophecy and ending Macbeth’s life. If Macbeth did not have so much ambition, he would not have visited the witches or even try to kill Macduff’s family. These two events demonstrate how Macbeth’s great ambition resulted in his downfall. Macbeth could’ve saved himself if he did not kill Banquo and Macduff’s family.
Regardless of the law, Curley’s morals based on vengeance and masculinity drive him to kill Lennie. George has very different morals based on protecting Lennie, his travel companion and friend. His ultimate goal of helping Lennie leads to him ending Lennie’s life in order to prevent his suffering at the hands of Curley. The concept that morality takes precedence over the law in certain cases is manifested through the decision of Curley to hunt Lennie down and the decision of George to end Lennie’s life in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. Curley’s decision to hunt Lennie down for the murder of his wife is one circumstance in which a character’s morals are deemed more important than the laws that govern society.
Knowing their fate can sometimes blind people and cause them to try to avoid the fate. In the cause of Oedipus, Antigone’s father, his father learned that Oedipus was to kill him and marry his wife, Oedipus’ own mother, so he tried to avoid that fate by banishing Oedipus. He unknowingly put into play the events that led up to Oedipus killing him and marrying his wife. When Oedipus found out, he gouged out his eyes and prophesied that his own sons would kill each other in battle. This event ultimately comes to pass (Oedipus Rex).
After hearing this, Macbeth decided to murder Duncan. Macbeth’s ego had a major impact on his behavior. “Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seem to have thee crowned withal.”(act1 sc5 32-33) If it was no’t for his own ego, he would have never been influenced by the witches and Lady Macbeth to kill Duncan. As soon as he murdered Duncan, his ego took over and he became insane with power and paranoia. This made Macbeth responsible for what he did to Banquo and Macduff’s family.
Lady Macbeth was clearly the more responsible for the murder of king Duncan but overall, Macbeth’s murderous reign has made the cold-blooded character the more evil character in the play. Lady Macbeth may have been more responsible for king Duncan’s death, but she had never expected Macbeth to kill countless of other people just to keep his throne. “I dare do all that may become a man; Who dares do more is none.” - Macbeth - Act 1 Scene 7 Line 47 to Line
In 1993, Christopher Simmons, age 17, and an accomplice plotted, and went through with, the murder of Shirley Crook. He was put on death row for this crime, but he made his way through the courts and eventually won his case (Roper v Simmons, 2005). Simmons argued that offenders under the age of eighteen should not be sentenced to death (Casebriefs). While the crime that he committed was definitely reprehensible, the death penalty for criminals under the age of eighteen are immoral and should not be used. Individuals under the age of eighteen do not have fully developed brains.
That person’s life was not theirs to take. Therefore, stopping the life of a fetus is unethical and wrong. If a person kills a pregnant women they are charged with two counts of murder. If abortion is not murder then why in the United States would the murderer of a pregnant women be charged with two counts? The same should go in abortion cases.
Even though he did what his father had told him to do but not in the manner that he would thought to get it done. So, to the real question Was Hamlet’s actions justified. My answer to that were no although hamlet did kill Claudius he didn’t have to do it in the way he did also in fact he also killed Polonius whilst thinking that it was Claudius. There could have been some way of an assassination attempt for him to kill Claudius, but he also had to kill Claudius while he was doing a bad deed like orchestrating a battle. What is trying to be understood here is that although Hamlet did end up killing Claudius he could have done it in a much, much, different way than which was achieved in his goal of avenging his
When a kid commits a crime, they should be tried as an adult because they have either done something illegal, or they have taken someone's life. John Bongivengo of the Lawrence County District Attorney's Office said, "My choice is to either to charge him as an adult, or don’t charge him." When someone commits homicide, they should be tried as an adult because they took someone's life for a dumb reason, and committing homicide is not a good thing. When a kid does take an adults life or even any one's life
