LT Murphy had a hard decision to make, to either kill these herders to not expose his team or to follow the Geneva Convention and let them go even when they would undoubtedly alert the enemy. “The potential force against us was too great. To let these guys go on their way was military suicide.” (Luttrell 2007, 202) The obvious military decision would have been to kill them and preserve the concealment of his team on the mountain, however LT Murphy decided to let them go due to the fact that the goats would not leave if they killed them also the fact that the insurgents could use the bodies for exploitation purposes. Knowing that letting them go could result in danger to
The assassination of Osama Bin Laden was just because he was dangerous, a threat, and had too way much power. Osama Bin Laden wanted to create his own and he was willing to do whatever to get what he desired no matter who he had to kill. Do you think Osama Bin Laden should’ve been assassinated . Most people would think yes of course all of the people has hurt and killed over his own desires. Some would say no because it was thought as his religion so why not follow that , but that doesn’t mean you just kill innocent people for absolutely no reason.
The police clearly were undermanned and unprepared for such an insurrection. On the other side, the FLQ were arming themselves with stolen weapons and “dynamite from construction sites” (Dominique Clément 164). Without the War Measures Act invoked the FLQ would just continue to spread fear in the Quebec populace and continue to arm themselves unless military personnel with equal and or better armaments appear to take control of the situation. Therefore, with a defeated police force the War Measures Act would help support the local police into bringing back the law and order. All things considered, the decision to implement the War Measures Act would be the correct one for the situation.
No matter what, no matter what was the cause for his revenge, or what caused him to commit this act of revenge, he did end up murdering someone, and to ensure that he does complete the requirements to be considered as revenge. He needed to tell someone before he died. However he also needed to ensure that he was not going to be punish for what he has done. What Montresor could have been thinking is that if he confessed his crimes at a very old age, then they would not be able to prosecute him for the crimes that he has committed because there was not in the city to prosecute him if he is already close to
As well as, in “The Most Dangerous Game” Rainsford used is craftiness to show what it takes to be a survivor by being hunted by General Zaroff. In the story, Rainsford prepared a contraption that General Zaroff did not realize and he was struck in the shoulder by a lifeless tree. (page 14 line numbers 592-597) That contraption was very crafty to create. The contraption saved Rainsford because he would have gotten shot by General Zaroff. That also gave him another night to create another contraption so kill General Zaroff.
The lust of battle died in him.” This is the end result when violence and assumption overcome us: we react in the right away. From the short story, “The Sniper”, we learn that assumption and violence can cause us to act in regrettable ways. The enemy sniper kills innocent people, the sniper fakes his death, and kills the enemy sniper. This violence was brought about by assumption, when really they were brothers all along. The sniper realizes, and regrets his actions at the end.
The way an officer approach person need to be changed because most suspects are killed instantly due to suspicion of them having a gun or an officer feeling threatened. Officers have killed men, children, women innocent victims everyone is not a suspect. If there is harsher punishment enforced upon officers they will make officers more rational before making a decision and not so quickly and pulling out a gun. Average citizens usually considered the law before commits a crime know the risk fact may lead to jail. Police should consider the same fact that they could go to jail too, police are not above the law.
Police practicing public execution is a clear infringement upon the constitutional rights which is why I have chosen this article. The title of this article “police brutality may be overwhelmingly legal but it 's far from being ethical or just”. I have chosen this article not only with its connection to Dr. Martian Luther King Jr. but it is a growing epidemic in today 's society. While it is legal for an officer to use force to “protect and serve” the right to take ones life is not ethical. In the article Shaun King goes over several situations in which the police officer(s) felt that discharging their fire arm was not only justifiable but deemed the situation to be dangerous for the lives of themselves, and others in the area without provocation thus creating a public execution without a trial; infringing upon the victims constitutional rights.
How the Mafia works then after is that they would refuse to get aid from the government by any means. If anyone does so, they would be targeted by the bosses and get killed. They would not cooperate with the laws, and they would rather obtain and settle things by their own hands, which originally came from why they wanted to make these clans in the first place. Guns and have been a very important factor for the rise of the Italian mafia. Without good weaponry, they would not have been feared or powerful when they first tried to only protect and secure themselves from foreign attacks.
If guns are banned the government will take innocent civilian guns away, because they have them registered in their names. However, that is going to put our lives in more danger because a lot criminal’s that have guns would not have theirs taken. Most criminals would not get their guns taken away because more than likely they are not registered and wouldn’t be found by the government. They would continue to cause crime and kill
This is exactly what the sniper is going through over the course of the narrative. If you know that you will feel like that every day, and still go through with your mission. You are either the very brave or a complete idiot. To be a sniper you must have immeasurable bravery, and overcome your fear. This was very well depicted on paragraph 17 “the cloud of fear scattered from his mind and he laughed.’’ Many do not think of snipers as brave because they “shoot their opponent when their back is turned.” But, if you are able to go through the previous experiences without going completely crazy, you are considered very brave to me.
Justifying the FLQ by enforcing the War Measures Act was not necessary because the basic rights of people were violated in the process, as it gave law enforcement the right to search, seize, and arrest anybody without sound reasoning, doing more harm than good. Yes, the FLQ was unpredictable, dangerous, and uncontrollable, but the situation did not needed to be handled the way it was, as it invaded the privacy of citizens, and took away their basic rights. The Front de Libération du Québec kidnapped two government officials, carried out many bombings, and caused incidents resulting in injuries or even death, showing terrorist-like characteristics, put lots of pressure on Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. He introduced the War Measures Act to
When they realize there is no one else around, they freeze. Police brutality is becoming a huge problem in America because, police don’t know when to pull the trigger therefore needing better training, which would then cause innocent people to stop dying, and police are supposed to protect not kill. First, police need better training so they know when to actually pull the trigger or not. Sometimes, police think that you are armed just based on the color of your skin. Watching the news has made this more apparent than ever, white policemen are killing black teens,
