“ Now you can admit you are guilty,” the chief said[...] “We won’t punish you severely provided you write a self-criticism[...] Mr. Chiu cried. “ I won’t write a word because I am innocent.”(Ha 472) Mr. Chiu still believes that his plead of innocence will help him win his freedom. He does not realize that he is not in a place of influence or power to sway their decision. His complaints have no impact on those in charge of him. “If he were able to, he would have razed the entire police station and eliminated all their families.”(Ha 476-477) Mr. Chiu has become a truly changed man.

Creon, the king of Thebes, is a dignified, superior character. He was unexcpectedly thrust into this role of authority and now has a lot of pressure on him. With his newfound power, he issues a decree outlawing burials for traitors. Once his own family member, Antigone commits this crime, he decides that he must punish her just as he would anyone else, and that is final. Here he shows his tragic flaw, stubborness.
In this story, Milligen describes in detail how victims were executed by the guillotine. As he describes the scenes and shares information, it is evident he has witnessed many executions. He is disgusted by how normal beheading is and that people go just to watch someone die. Death should not be a normal event in someone’s day because death by beheading should be appalling. The widening of concept of toleration is still going on today.
The haunting of the ghost is a representation of Macbeth’s guilt haunting him, reminding him that once you take a person’s life, their blood will forever be on your hands and you will never be able to forget about it.

That they are special because their actions have no repercussions? These proposals do not exist in the world since there is a well-established principle in society saying that everyone is accountable for their actions, so Charles I cannot be an exception. After thorough questioning of the defendant, taking into account his responses proves that Charles I is without questionable doubt guilty of the accused crimes. Please set aside the arguments raised by the defense today, which are inferior to those of the prosecution. At the conclusion of the case, we ask that the just ladies and gentlemen of the jury produce a verdict of guilty for the people of the United Kingdom.
“[After the Magistrate] discovers his fear is justified, and thereafter, he is obsessed by the brutality of the Empire and the effects of torture, not only on the victims, but also on the torturers and on those who live in a society that allows torture” (Franklin 4). This quote shows how the magistrate was not at first attempting to resist the empire, but was led to once he found out the
Mr Peltier emphesize that every evidence they collected leads to conclusion that he is innocent. In the end of his speech, Mr Peltier uses repitation of “ I am not” to remind the people of jury and the judges that he is not guilty whatsoever: “No, I'm not the guilty one here; I'm not the one who should be called a criminal”. Mr Peltier then proceed to deepen the Ethos of his message by expressing his perception of the judges decision: “I have done nothing to feel guilty about!”. Even if the judges plead him guilty, he will not feel guilty at all because he knows that he has not murdered
There are many ways people interpret death. In "Poverty" by Maria Pacheco, Death is a physical being that comes to visit those whose time has come. It is not only death who has a physical being it is also poverty itself. Death is portaited as a being whose goal is to gather people who need to pass on, a being who is always busy and never stops working and he is someone who is trapped and used for another 's advantage. Death is something known by all people and is always shown in varius ways, but the main goal that people understand is that death is something that takes people away to an afterlife.
This self-centeredness of Gordon’s so-called “friend” is what ultimately causes his suicide, for Gordon wouldn’t have had to turn to Jewel if Dean would have been selfless. Taking all of this into consideration, it can be argued that Fitzgerald paints the 1920s as the “calm before the storm”—an era of ignorance and partying where the aforementioned tensions will fail to be resolved. While the decade will generally be carefree, all
His admiration of the court goes down as he sees more people being hanged and the stubbornness of the court. In the end, Hale knows that the law is not the entire aspect of creating a perfect society, no one in a society needs to follow the law entirely, and that authority does not always judge over everything. He has no more confidence in the idea of dominance of God over anything in life, and by that mean he loses his faith to the court. Not just those, he doesn’t carry the heavy written laws since the beginning. When Hale loses his faith towards the court and the society, he earns empathy and respect from us the readers and proving how moral obligation plays a bigger role than civic duty when it comes to real difficulties in a
Choices can be bad, to worse. It is never as black and white as it may seem when it comes to choices, and for that, one cannot wish anything sour to those who chose a path that felt best in a situation. John died a hero for trying to save those falsely accused, and trying to prove that the girls were lying, though that has never been proven and is merely a theory. With that, John also died a selfish man for leaving behind his wife and children for nothing but a name. One can conclude that John can easily be assumed as a selfish hero, like many people in stories and people currently walking the earth.
