Grem the court concludes battery is harmful contact of one person against another, with the intent to act out and harm the person receiving the harmful contact, which leads to direct or indirect results. Grem attacked Agnes from behind, smashing a “rocks glass” into his head, resulting in a permanent scar after his injury was healed. The court ruled in favor of Agnes. It reasoned that Grem clearly acted with intent, as he was behind Agnes when he attacked him, as well as acted with intent to harm, as he smashed a “rocks glass” into Agnes’s skull to result in injury against Agnes. Though Grem acted recklessly in his actions and intent, it was substantially certain that Grem acted with the intent to cause harm towards
Coaches drill players to tackle head first with as much force as possible. Though this is an effective strategy, it is also incredibly dangerous. In Nate Jackson’s article “The NFL’s Head Cases” he reports, “Some say players should block and tackle with the shoulder pads instead. Doing that means choosing a side, trying to hit the opponent with the left or right shoulder. That technique will get you cut by any professional team.
In Law 195 it states, “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off.” This law seems, as well, too harsh. The son should get a punishment but getting your hands cut off for hitting his father would lead to son being scared. In conclusion, Hammurabi 's code is unjust. The evidence shows that the Personal Injury Laws didn’t protect all people equally, the Property Laws punishments were too harsh, and the Family Laws can cause someone 's death. Most of Hammurabi’s laws are not just to the people or society of Babylon.
It is an aspect of our human makeup that we must resist. It is an example of man’s complete and utter capacity for abstract thought. Society should be against hatred and revenge because it causes violence and chaos and is inevitably a destructive motive for actions. When we act out of revenge, revenge is what we will receive in return. This was the reason behind the 9/11 attacks on the
They made offensive holding a penalty. Offensive holding is where the lineman holds the defensive lineman to where he can’t go by him. But isn`t that the offensive lineman`s job to block the defense and protect the ball. After a while the defense starts to complain and cry to the referees and they eventually throw a flag. The referees wouldn’t throw a flag if the offence was complaining, so why should they for the defense.
Concussions themselves are a controversial topic simply because of their destructive forces on the lives of everyone, ranging from people who tripped and fell a little too hard, to people who make a career of hitting other people as hard as they possibly can. There are many people opposed to the idea of football’s inherent violence, yet advocates of the sport claim that removing the factor of colliding would make a completely different sport that cannot even be called football, which itself has become so ingrained in American society that it practically owns a day of the week from Week One of preseason to the closing seconds of the Superbowl. The fact remains though that if football were to suddenly cease existing, many people would be jobless,
While Montresor pretends to be a good friend to Fortunato, it is strange that Fortunato does not realize the problems between them. In order to be believable for readers, the insults must be very painful for Montresor, so it urges him to commit such a crime. “The Cask of Amontillado” is missing an important element of Montresor’s motivation to punish Fortunato by burying him alive. Montresor neglects to explain how Fortunato insults him as the story lays the foundation at the opening paragraph, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge.” (Poe 866); however, no evidence to be found in the story to support Montresor’s claim. No one would not know what Fortunato did to Montresor and should the insults lead to

The Death of Pride Did Brother kill Doodle? If not,then who?I think that pride in fact can sometimes be a destructive force. If someone has pride in themselves to do something bad then that can most definitely be a destructive force. Based on evidence in the text,I believe that brother is guilty for killing his sibling Doodle. In the beginning of the story Brother wanted to smother Doodle because he wasn’t “all there”.
If there was no consequences he would assassinate Duncan with no worries but committing treason worries him. In Holinshed's works, the guilty conscience is also a message through King Kenneth after he butchered his nephew. King Kenneth conscience tormented him about how the eternal God will forever know and will punish him and he believes he deserves
Dubus has the reader questioning if inflicting revenge on Richard is ethical thing to do since the legal system failed in serving the appropriate punishment. In the story, Matt is thinking about taking Richard 's life because he killed his son and Dubus has the reader on his side. Releasing Richard on bail is an unjust decision made by the legal system because the crime does not match the punishment. Nobel peace prize winner Martin Luther King Jr says “ How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others? The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust.
