The boys are the
He is portrayed as a mastermind in the cold-blooded killing of the Clutters family, a man with little respect for the lives of others, which can be seen through Dick’s expression before the murder of the Clutters when he converses Perry, “We’re gonna go in there and splatter those walls with hair” (Capote 234). This sudden tone shift enables Capote to depict Dick as a cruel and immoral character. Dick’s lack of empathy and concern for other people beside himself allow him to commit crimes without remorse, which is in contrast to Perry’s moral contemplation after each bad actions they committed. Moreover, Dick is represented as the true criminal with evident motives in murdering the Clutters, while Perry is seen as a vulnerable victim who depends on Dick for validation and acceptance, something in which Dick happily provides in order to manipulate Perry, as Capote writes, “Dick became convinced that Perry was that rarity, ‘a natural born killer,’—absolutely sane but conscienceless, and capable of dealing with or without motive, the coldest-blooded deathblows. It was Dick's theory that such a gift could, under his supervision, be profitably exploited” (Capote 205).

In today’s society there are many people who prey on the defenseless and the innocent. I believe that these people are modern day monsters. This group of people of course includes gangsters, sex offenders, and terrorists, who commit atrocious acts against fellow humans. However this list also includes unjust governments like the Islamic State who will behead anybody who doesn’t follow their oppressive Sharia law, and the North Korea government who throws any of its citizens who has a political disagreement into a prison camp. If there are monsters in society then there has to be heroes, and I believe that the heroes are the people who stand up against the monsters.

“We deserve Justice! Death to these criminals!” is how a member on a conveying panel may attempt to support his or her hero the Punisher. Gerry Conway’s and John Romita Sr.’s comic, The Punisher, depicts story of Frank Castle and the events that unfolded after the tragic murder of his family. In the Marvel Universe, a majority of the government is full of corruption; specifically, the police force is so corrupt that many of the people who are accused of a crime are repeatedly released back to the streets to kill, sell drugs, and rape the people of their humanity. In this Universe so broken, Frank takes it upon himself to bring justice and punishment to those whom he deems “deserves it”.
The Tell-Tale Heart is a story about an insane narrator claiming to his sanity after murdering an old man out of anxiety and panic. Many believe the evidence points to the narrator being a calculated killer. After reviewing the symptoms of the narrator I believe him to be a man plagued with anxiety issues and panic attacks. First of all, the only reason the narrator had for such crime was of his eye, the eye of a vulture, nothing else. Not for his gold, property, or vengeance just his eye.
One conclusion that could be drawn from this speculation is that a person’s prior experiences could be what sways the decision being made within the individuals mind. Take a look at an evil person, for example use the man the radio lab host’s father interviewed. He sat a man down and asked him numerous questions about his past and motives for carrying out these evil acts on women throughout his life. After a volley of questions the interviewers started to believe that this man would kill for the sake of killing. It was this inner mechanism within this serial killer’s brain that was making him kill the women who found their way into his
