Even though no one knew what was going on in Gang Lu head, there is still a general idea that he did this shooting out of guilt. He felt guilty because he disappointed his sister. When someone is in a bad mental state of mind like Gang Lu, they tend to go off their emotions rather than thinking clearly. When the gunman finally pulls the trigger, he not only has to live with the guilt that he killed someone, but he also has to live with the pain that he will cause to his family as well as the decease’s. For example, when a shooting happens whether if it’s at a work place, school, or even at home there is always an outcome that affects everyone around them.
OMAM At the end of the book Lennie killed curly’s wife, by snapping her neck. All because he wanted her to be quite. He didn’t mean to, he just didn’t know his own strength because of his mental illness it keeps him from knowing reality. So I think George shouldn’t have killed him. George shouldn’t have killed Lennie, because there could have been another solution to what he did.
Then they kept manipulating by isolating him and pushing away everyone that they thought was his friend. He went through a lot and did a lot for them. And at the end he regrets it and feels extremely mad about it because they made him kill an entire species without him being aware of. I mean he knew that they were preparing him for a war. But he didn’t know that the last fight was actually the war because they simply didn’t tell him the truth, which shows that how the whole situation in which Ender was in was a complete
A primary claim on this side of the argument is that Lennie didn’t mean to do anything violent. More specifically, when Lennie hurt Curley’s hand in a fight he “ ‘didn’t wanta hurt him.’ ” (Steinbeck 64) However, another incident when Lennie hurt another person is when he killed Curley’s wife. In this scene, he “was angry with her. ‘Don’t you go yellin’,’ he said, and he shook her; and her body flopped like a fish. And she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck.” (Steinbeck 91) This incident resulted from his own anger and physical strength.
The character’s evil, immoral, and despicable behavior is caused by the way that they consistently put little to no thought to their actions. In “The Lottery”, the people of the village are killing other townspeople without even thinking that it might be a bad idea. In “The Sniper” The main character kills some people for no reason and kills his brother. This isn’t just a recurring theme in the two short stories that I chose to write about, it is a very common thing throughout history and still happens to this day. An example of this are the many religious extremists oppressing minorities because it was how they were raised.
Genocide will never be morally permissible. The Hutus were killing the Tutsis because they didn’t like them. You cant just kill off a population or race because you don’t like them. There has been numerous genocides in the world, the most well known is the Holocaust.

The Worst Crime: Matt’s or Richard’s “Killings”, written by Andre Dubus, illustrates how the death of a loved one may lead to dire consequences for all the parties included. Matt Fowler’s son, Frank, was murdered in cold blood by a jealous soon-to-be ex-husband, Richard Strout. When the death of Frank sunk into the lives of the Fowler’s, Matt believed he had to retaliate in some sort of fashion. The sort of fashion he chose was to seek revenge and kill Richard for his wrongdoings, which he did. Some people believe that the murder committed by Richard Strout can be considered more serious because of his act of passion and his lackadaisical style of living without worrying about his future.
Montag felt threatened by him, and he felt anger for what he had said about books. “‘…Well, the world can get by just fine without them…’” The world can get by just fine without them, without Clarisse, without anyone who decides to think differently. He wanted Beatty to feel the same thing Clarisse felt when she died. Just like Jan Zabinski did during World War II. Jan would poison the meat that was going to Nazi soldiers as a part of the rebellion to make them feel the same way the Nazi’s did.
