This sounds like it would be a very sad place to live and if I were not personally living in it I would feel awful for the people that were.

The judge’s statement proves that even though a Marshal’s duty is to protect the town and capture criminals, the Marshal himself is being hunted by criminals. Falling under the same umbrella, “The Most Dangerous Game”, Richard Conell described Rainsford’s situation, “The cossack was the cat; he was the mouse. Then it was that that Rainsford knew the full meaning of terror” (Conell 228).

Father and son found naked people “huddled against the back wall” (110), one distorted and burnt. “Help us, they whispered.
They found her home at the bottom of a lake and Unferth gave Beowulf his sword to fight the monster to repent for accusing Beowulf of being a fraud. Beowulf spent half a day diving to the bottom of the lake, in full armor and armed with weapons because he felt that she was a far greater threat than Grendel, and found Grendel’s mother at the bottom of the lake. When Beowulf reached the bottom of the lake and began the battle with Grendel's mother, the sword that Unferth gave him failed and he would have died if not for the chail mail gifted to him by Hrothgar. Beowulf then found a sword that he used to slay the monster and cut off Grendel’s head from his dead body. All of the hall men thought that

While it’s true that there’s some violence left over, when people accept one’s differences, that creates less brutality. The text states, “‘I’m [Jenna] not walking anywhere with you, Dane.’ ‘Why?

However, when people conform without thinking, it can lead to dangerous consequences. Often times, mindless conformity leads to senseless violence that could have been avoided with just a little more thought. In order to justify hateful and exclusive acts, the actions of people in minorities are often taken out of context to make them seem more threatening.
