Then he decided to work in a soup factory, but wasn’t a huge fan of working there and that 's when Vigil decided that he was going to start hauling milk with only two milk trucks.

Hounds are made to kill anyone that breaks the law. The government doesn 't care if violence is used, its part of life. “A four inch hollow steel needle plugged down from the proboscis of the Hound to inject massive jolts of morphine and procaine.” (Bradbury 22). If someone is doing something wrong the Hound will attack violently. When someone dies they are brought to the incinerator and everyone seems like nothing happened.

Radeler and Traci L. Locock conducted their own research. They titled it “Do Executions Lower Homicide Rates?” In 2008 they sent questions to some of the top criminologist and one of the questions found that “eighty-nine percent of the criminologist don’t think that the death penalty is effective.” (Radeler , Locock 2009 pg. 501). The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is one of the key fighters trying to get rid of the death penalty. The ACLU believes that the “state shouldn’t give itself the right to kill human beings especially when it kills with premeditation.” (ACLU The case against the death penalty).
In Moises Kaufman’s play The Laramie Project , a group of people travel to Laramie, Wyoming to conduct interviews about Matthew Shepard’s horrible death. The problem is that these people all go into Laramie assuming this murder was a hate crime, therefore they are very biased in the way they assume Aaron McKinney and Russel Henderson killed Shepard because he was gay. By doing this they stayed away from the problems that Shepard had, such as prostitution and Methamphetamine. Later, Stephen Jimenez goes and conducts interviews as-well, but he doesn’t shy away from the truth. Shepard was not murdered because he was a homosexual, and McKinney and Henderson were not motivated by “hate”.
Most people know about Martin Luther King Jr. and how he fought and died for the rights of African Americans. But how many people know that his name at birth was Michael? Or that he tried to commit suicide at age 12 when his grandmother passed away? How many know that he had a heart of a 60-year old man when he died at age 39, and that MLK Day is also celebrated in Hiroshima, Japan and Toronto, Canada? People knew that he was a preacher, but did they know that he wanted to be a doctor instead?

Capote’s bias makes the audience feel more sympathetic towards Perry and more hatred towards Dick, even though Perry is the killer. Another reason why readers believed that Perry shouldn’t have received capital punishment is because he has a mental illness. The court dismisses the plea quickly because “the justice system ignores psychosocial complexities and histories in favor of black and white definitions of right and wrong” (Myers). The justice system in this time very rarely accepted pleas of insanity or mental illness. Capote wrote that “after an hour’s conversation with the defendants, the doctor rule[d] out that neither man

No one would even talk bad about him, for fear of being executed. All independance was ripped from the people, they were mindless slaves to Vlad III, and if they couldn’t work, they would be killed. This doesn’t just mean the elderly or injured, he would even kill children if they weren’t working from birth. The dead bodies would be hung from trees and buildings in the towns, to do what leaving thousands of enemy soldiers impaled when the unstoppable Ottoman Empire was gaining on them, to strike a fear beyond what’s imaginable. Imagine walking outside and seeing a dead child hanging from a tree just because they were too young to work, or seeing an elderly woman rotting, hanging from a building.
