Movies for reference: GodFather: The Godfather is a movie with such strong characters that people idolize them. While for those who see the film for an entertainment purposes will not grasp the concept of crime being glorified in the movie.
As the plot disentangles, Fitzgerald exposes Gatsby 's dark roots, including his partygoers ' assumptions that he killed a man or is actually a German spy from the Third Reich, and the fact that he can never get the story regarding how he climbed to prosperity, straight. His rather indeterminate and shady manner of "business" with Meyer Wolfshiem and inability to explicitly explain, even to Nick, what trade he is in, demonstrates that his crisp, rich image is not what he says it is. The haze of the glorification of money hides this suspicious background, which is why Gatsby is so great in the beginning of the book, but falls utterly hard by the

Francis Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, a novel documenting the experiences Nick Carraway has in New York, is ultimately used to voice Fitzgerald’s perception of the American dream. Fitzgerald validates this thought by using all of the poverty stricken characters in this novel to represent an attempt at a rags-to-riches story. This is most notably seen in Gatsby’s ascent to wealth through organized crime to satisfy his American dream which is to be reunited with Daisy. Gatsby’s attempt to fulfill his dream was accompanied by a variety of corruption and jealousy by Tom as he ultimately redirected George Wilson to conclude that Gatsby was accountable for both the affair and death involving Myrtle. Although Gatsby in the end fails to achieve his
In order for Gatsby to achieve material wealth, he finds himself overwrought with unauthorized money. Gatsby displays examples of moral corruption through his procurement of wealth. Gatsby’s business is not strong; he admits to Nick that he is “in the drug store business” (95). During the prohibition era, which synchronizes with the “Roaring 20s”, the drug store business was also known as bootlegging. Bootlegging was a profitable business and was usually linked to gangsters, much like Meyer Wolfsheim, Gatsby’s business partner.
Mark didn’t want to understand the concept of right or wrong. He just did what he wanted, and he paid the consequences later. He was a trustworthy guy, and he was able to smooth talk his way out of trouble. He was good at stealing, but he didn’t feel any guilt for it (Hinton 25). Mark stole the principal’s car to go see his parole officer about stealing cars, proving that he doesn’t care about the concept of wrong and right because he kept doing the same thing over and over (Hinton 73).
Although crime existed prior to the prohibition era, it would see a new extent of the meaning throughout this time. Petty gangster began to monopolize the alcohol industry (illegally) and became millionaires by engaging in lucrative criminal operations. These criminal operations included bootlegging, speakeasies and smuggling. What was once a petty thug with little reign, now gained dominance throughout their community and managed to create a criminal empire that provides them with not only wealth, but power. This power could be seen with the merge of prohibition and the political machine in Chicago, thus creating the most notorious criminal organization in U,S, History, the mob.
Defore’s objection did not favor one item over the other. If any of the items were admissible, his objection does not succeed. In this situation it is not necessary to find out whether the items are lawfully owned. There are situations when items, not contraband at all, may be seized and submitted into evidence. In this case, if the coat had been priced fifty-one dollars rather than fifty dollars, it would have been a lawful arrest because the police officer might apprehend the defendant if a felony had been committed and there was a reasonable cause to think that he did it.
