The final purpose of writing In Cold Blood is hypocrisy of conventionalism. Death penalty is for murderers. The remaining question is ‘It is not fine for someone to murder someone else while the government can kill a person as a punishment?’ Before Perry was executed, he said, “I do not believe in capital punishment, morally or legally” (340). Capote truly wanted to tell the readers how hypocritical the government is on punishing people who are legally
However, this truth remains unknown to Parris, so one has to analyze the situation from his point of view. Disregarding the truth, the first thing Parris worries about is his own name and reputation, instead of his daughter’s wellbeing. Thus, having his estate and daughter involved with witchcraft and unnatural events obviously threatens his rank as a revered. While arguing with Abigail, he says “my ministry’s at stake, my ministry and perhaps your cousin’s life”(Miller, 11), explicitly revealing how he places the importance of his name before Betty’s own sake. Parris is afraid of what others might think of him and avoids facing the congregation in order to evade the topic of witchcraft.
Secondly, Judge Danforth’s irrationality and ignorance brings about poor decisions on his part. One of the instances where Danforth reveals his following attitude is when he denies to even look at a deposition presented by John Proctor as described by his words “ No, no, I accept no depositions” (Miller 88). John Proctor hands him a deposition signed by Mary warren, stating that the accusations made by Abigail and the girls are false. In this regard Judge Danforth replies to John Proctor by repetitively says “No” thereby emphasizing his adamant view on this subject.
The counselor also judged that he should rely on the plea colloquy for evidence about respondent’s background and his claim of emotional stress. The counselor believed the plea colloquy provided sufficient information to the Court about these subjects. He also believed that by not introducing new evidence on these subjects, he prevented the State from cross-examining the respondent on his claim and from introducing its own psychiatric evidence. He also was successful in excluding other damaging evidence from the sentencing hearing, including the introduction of the respondent’s criminal history. He also judged that a pre-sentence report would likely be more damaging than helpful because it
He thought that even though we have everything we need to be happy, but without being able to think for ourselves, we’re not truly happy. Right then, a new door reveals itself to Montag. In part three of Fahrenheit 451, Montag realizes that he is putting himself and Mildred in danger by returning a book to Beatty in order to trick him. After all, Beatty knows that Montag have books and he already hints that Montag have 24 hours to burn them or the firemen will come to Montag’s house and burn them for him.
John Proctor is not a tragic hero in the beginning of the story because he lied to his wife about Abigail, but towards the end of the book he realizes the mistakes he has made and he wants to make a change. He wants to stop lying to himself and to others, even if it ends in a tragedy. John Proctor does not qualify as a tragic hero because he broke laws by having an affair with Abigail Williams behind his wife’s back. When his wife, Elizabeth, confronts him about Abigail and his affair, John lies to her face. This lying continues throughout the whole story.
People weren’t able to empathize with his choices. Krakauer establishes this notion by inputting his own story and comparing himself to Chris. Peter Christian’s Criticism of McCandless is a provocative essay stating that Chris is a whack job, his story is completely pointless and not worth the time it takes to read. Peter Christian is right when he states, “There was nothing heroic or even mysterious about what Chris
Depression is an active theme in J.D. Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye.” Holden does not properly treat his depression because he ignores help, abuses substances, and bottles up his emotions. Before reading “The Catcher in the Rye,” I believed that depression is completely not a choice, but after I realized that although it isn’t a choice, there are still ways of treating depression. Holden refuses to accept help from other people. As soon as I was inside, I couldn 't think of anybody to call up.
Then he gave no respect to Tom and Daisy’s marriage, which didn’t help him out in the long run. Finally by not telling the truth and covering for Daisy is the main reason why his downfall is on himself. Given these few examples about why I think Gatsby’s downfall should be blamed on himself, who do you think was the blame for Gatsby’s downfall? Work Cited Fritzgerald,
Judges must possess these characteristics to be effective because they need to have the to make sure every person has a fair trial in the eyes of the law. Danforth was biased and all through Act 3 we can see that he is ineffective by not be law-abiding, far, or willing to listen to the
Patel failed to take appropriate police action in regards to the active I-Card, which is in violation of P.G. 203-10 "Public Contact - Prohibited Conduct", page #1, paragraph #5, which states that MOS are prohibited from engaging in conduct prejudicial to good order, efficiency, or discipline of the Department.

Since Howard knew it was criminally wrong, would not pass the statement of “appreciate the wrongfulness”. Within the boundaries of the ALI test, Howard does not meet the legal terms for insanity because he failed to cognitive and volitional prongs.
While it is still highly debated whether or not Sacco and Vanzetti were indeed innocent, the fact that conflict and debate surrounding the case in its day has failed to die out demonstrates just what lack of evidence there really was and still is. The proclamation made by the Massachusetts governor in 1977 was correct in saying that Sacco and Vanzetti did not deserve such unjust fate. People 's’ minds were unfortunately clouded with the hatred of anarchism and immigrants, and such bias cannot morally be afforded when determining the outcome of another’s
Any study that involves subjects concerning human beings should be approved first from the ethics committee before being effected (Chiarelli & Cockburn, 2002). Further, if the paper ever sought for ethical approval is not being mentioned in any section of the article concerning its ethical issues. This is one of the pitfalls noticed at the beginning of the
You can 't just sit there knowing that someone you know is going to be murdered and not do anything about it, you would have that on your mind. I don 't believe Jay 's story at all, he is a sketchy person who can 't make his mind up about certain things. He keeps changing details in his stories, and his alibi doesn’t seem right to me. Jay keeps going back and forth on his word and how things actually happened. He doesn’t seem trustworthy to me.
