Although Perry and Dick both had cruel intentions, walking into the Clutters home that night, Truman Capote moreso aims to prevail the manipulation from Dick and the credulous personality of Perry, giving Perry an innocent perception; therefore, Capote asserts that not all criminals are all equally responsible for crimes. Capote utilizes anecdotes to embellish and describe Perry's child life, and in return creates contrast between Dick and his own family life. Perry’s father writes a story about Perry when he was young: “The next three years Perry had on several occasions runoff, set out to find his lost father, for he had lost his mother as well, learned to ‘despise’ her; liquor had blurred the face, swollen the figure of the once sinewy, limber Cherokee girl, had ‘soured her soul’...” (Capote 131). Inserting anecdotes helps to enhance just how helpless Perry was because Perry grew up without a stable family and no one by his side to help him along his journey as a child, Perry’s father describes this in the stories he writes about when Perry was young.
Sanders frequently switches from using universal pronouns to singular pronouns. The type he chooses to use depends on the tone of the particular part of the essay and the subtopic that is being discussed.

In a world in which survival is nearly impossible, survival has become Eliezer’s dominant goal. He admits that he lives only to feed himself.

I do not believe that Len 's parents thought he was having problems, or there were voices talking to him. However, I believe that Len 's mother sensed something because she had him start writing in the journal. Another thing to consider was Len 's father, who Len did not have a very good relationship with. His father was always hurting his mother physically, drank high amounts of alcohol, and liked to control the family. I believe this had something to do with why Len became an active shooter at school.
