Abigail told him in the beginning of the story that all of the witchcraft was a sham, and he refused to tell anyone else. If he had just been open about the lies from the beginning, rather than waiting for more craziness to break out, then perhaps the judges would have been more lenient and not as quick to hang people, no matter the accusations. “ I think you must go to Salem, John. You must tell them it is a fraud.” (1163) Unfortunately, John Proctor did not listen to his wife and kept the secret to himself. In fact, the only reason he brought up the fact that it was a lie was when his own wife was accused of witchcraft.
There are many facts that prove that Kevin Latham purposefully burglarized Bernadette 's home, but is there more evidence that might help show that he isn 't the only person involved? Should he get another trial to see who else was in this with him? Latham was proven guilty because of the substantial evidence against him during his trial. On of the major evidences used against him were the three of four fingerprints belonging to him on a broken window in Bernadette 's home (2nd brief, Statement of facts, paragraph 16). These fingerprints give a huge clue that the appellant was in Bernadette 's home while she was away.
The only information the officers were given was shots fired but, Deputy Murphy’s comment “if I have to go in there myself I’ll charge him with anything I can find” Is over the top and unnecessary. He didn’t know what the situation was I think the officers were right to enter his house to make sure anybody in the house is ok. Since the only information they had was shots fired the officers messed up when he took the mans keys to get into his gun safe that’s when his 4th amendment rights were violated.
For example, a woman who has made a rape accusation may be asked what kind of clothing she was wearing when she was assaulted. However, sexual assault can be compared to a situation in which the owner of an expensive car or house is robbed. The victim of the robbery would not be blamed for the theft because they left their expensive car parked in the driveway, or be blamed for having an expensive home that might be alluring to thieves. The thief would be held solely and fully responsible for the robbery, not the owner of the items that were stolen. This is why, in preventing and finding justice for sexual assault, those involved in the justice process cannot simply pass off the incident as a product of rape culture.
He dealt with stage regardless of the notice in light of the fact that he trusted the danger of falling was the main risk. The court held that the inability to regard a notice is not contributory carelessness if the harm was the consequence of an alternate wellspring of danger created by the respondent, and the harmed gathering was ignorant of that hazard. Solomon v. Shuell – Plain garments cops were capturing burglary suspects. The decedent thought the suspects were being assaulted and was shot by one of the officers when he left his home with a weapon. The court held that under the salvage teaching, contributory carelessness is not present if the rescuer had a sensible conviction that the
After been arrest detective asked Ridgway why he had killed so many innocent people. He told law enforcement he taught he was doing them a favor because prostitute are pollutant to society. He claimed that he picked prostitutes as his victims because they were easy to pick without a chase back or notice. He believe they would not be reported soon or at all. Gary believe he would be able to kill as many prostitute without getting caught.
Even with no proof that Sartoris said that she did not have to pay taxes, Emily thinks that she has the power to not pay taxes. When she goes to buy arsenic from the druggist, she has “cold, haughty eyes” (454), which shows her attitude of superiority. When asked to give a reason for buying the arsenic, Emily “just stared at him, her head tilted back in order to look him eye to eye, until he looked away and went and got the arsenic and wrapped it up” (454). She does this, because in her reality she has the ability to get what she wants without giving a reason for it. Because of the power that the Griersons had, Emily believes that she is above the law.
Hammurabi 's code and punishment was unfair to the citizens for example, in law #23 if the robber is not caught then the city and the mayor in which the robbery took place must replace his or her belongings. This is unfair to the citizens of babylonia because they didn 't commit the crime and they have to give away a their belongings and give to a stranger when it was only one person 's doing .The citizens shouldn 't have to reimburse the person if they didn 't rob them in the first place .Hammurabi 's law against property was unfair to the citizens and the society of babylon.His law affects everyone in babylonia in a bad way people lose
If she could have found the courage to tell the truth, it could have changed everything. The truth regarding the on-going, violent abuse could have prevented Lisa’s death. Nussbaum may have been found innocent by the jurors but her failure to seek timely medical assistance when Lisa suffered head trauma, her drug usage and her failure to communicate the abuse by her husband lead one to condemn her as the symbol of a
Like Owl Eyes, Turner created excuses to explain his actions and attempt to remove blame from himself; however, for Owl Eyes no one else was harmed through his actions, but Emily now has to live with the events of one party. By using intoxication as a reason for his poor choices, Turner and Jordan both use the mentality of it takes two, but unlike Jordan, Turner did find another person in his same state leading to a rape. While Turner did not take the blame for the rape like Gatsby took the blame for Daisy’s hit and run, both Turner and Daisy were irresponsible in their actions involving a third party. Each person in the situations above expressed indiscretion in slightly different ways, but collectively they exemplify the irresponsibility of the upper class. Irresponsibility is a theme seen throughout everyday life, and Fitzgerald uses this to create scenes in the novel so the reader can make real life
Prior to reading the article, I was under the assumption that the group of individuals involved whom faced charges had violated trespassing laws for being on federal building grounds. However, one discrepancy I noticed was that no laws were actually violated at all in a deliberate manner. The people who were arrested and charged with trespassing had simply been invited to a party, without any intention of violating federal laws. This reminds me of the movie Detroit, in which the Detroit PD brutalized a group of black party goers for "not having a liquor license." Although the comparison I made is tenuous in that this current case in capitol hill does not involve civil rights violations, it is unequivocal that the officers of the law, in both
It is difficult for someone in this situation to escape the inference that they knew what was in their bag or sock or pockets. Similarly, where drugs are stored in a part of a house that is private (say, in a person 's bedroom) it is open to be inferred that they had possession of those drugs. The case of the leftover drugs A guest at a party left marijuana in a bathroom cupboard. During a raid some time later, a resident of the house told police that he knew the drugs were there and that he had intended to dump them. He was found not guilty of possession because he had laid no claim to the drugs and had exercised no control over them.
