The conspiracy to kill Abraham Lincoln was not a one-man job. Many of the Confederates did not like Lincoln's ways of thinking which resulted in hostility toward the president. John Wilkes Booth was one of those people who hated Lincoln. Even though Booth was the assassin, he could not have done it without the help of his peers. Obviously Booth deserved to die because of the crime he had committed, but what about the others?
They murdered people who were not putting them in any danger. The colonists would not have killed any of the soldiers, they were just protesting and expressing their anger. The British knew this, but clearly did not care, as they killed innocent people. This proved that the Americans needed to get away from the British as soon as possible, because tragedies like this would continue to
People may think he was a loyal officer, but just because some other officers made poor decisions, it does not mean they were unloyal. This is why the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko. Many assassinations are talked about such as the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Malcolm X and so on, but one assassination that is barely touched is the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko. Alexander was a secret officer who stopped crime. He also knew
Some would argue that the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln was justified because he disapproved of slavery. However, the assassination was an unconstitutional act that created more tension in the U.S. The assassination was not justified because all life is precious. Lincoln was not a tyrant and the only quarrel the assailant had with him was a difference in opinion. The assassination of Abraham Lincoln took place after Robert E. Lee surrendered and ended the Civil War.
but it was ok for the white American’s to murder or sell the slaves two wrongful actions don’t make one side better than the other side in my eyes but that just might opinion since watching this video on Nat Turner. I don’t think Nat Turner a hero or a murder I believe he was just following his beliefs and heart and thought he was doing the right thing to help his people get freed from being slaves to the white American’s or slaves to anyone but it turned out to be a bad thing to do because it made a worse war between him and the other black American’s in the world and made the white American’s be as worse as he was before he was sentenced to be killed for his actions he was able to tell his story of his actions. I can’t say I believe the interpretations from what other’s said what happened and what Nat Turner had did for his the other slaves I think he could of just saved the slaves but not murder the white American’s just because they were selling or killing the slaves but he did what he felt was right and I don’t blame him for following his
John Brown has made a point that defends him from being called a terrorist. Furthermore, in the article, Last Speech, John Brown says, “I never did intend murder, or treason, or the destruction of property, or to excite or incite slaves to rebellion, or make insurrection.” As a result of this speech this make Brown seem like a national because he says he never intended murder. Also Brown after this speech makes the government look like the bad guy and make his execution even more one sided. John Brown has claims against him that make him look as bad as a terrorist. Furthermore, in the article, The 9/11 of 1859 Tony Horowitz explains, “The first civilian casualty was a free black railroad worker, shot in the back while fleeing the
While many would believe that just the act of committing evil makes one evil, I would disagree. The definition of evil is not just committing an act of evil, it is consciously choosing to commit evil acts repetitively. People call every person who killed someone else in the Holocaust that was on the German side, but that would be wrong to do, as there were people who did terrible things because it was all they knew how to do, and they were able to be taught better afterwards. Evil is the choice to consciously harm another individual for no other purpose than because you can. In war, taking another life because they will take yours is not evil, it is an unfortunate necessity to ensure your own survival.
Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them. Another reason why he was a villain because he killed members of his family so that he would become the ultimate successor to the throne. This should never be how a king becomes the ruler of his kingdom, ever. Even though I believe that Alexander the Great is a villain, others may think he was a hero. They may think that because he had conquered so many other nations.
Terrorist attacks worldwide have occurred as a way to gain political power. However, not all extremists use violence for their way of sending a message. Some form activism and fundraisers trying to spread ideology. Different societies are aware of what is going on with these violent groups. But no one should be subjecting these Middle Eastern’s into a branch of which they are afraid of
Nobody has the right to deliberately cause harm to another human with the intention of causing the maximum physical and emotional pain. It’s the most twisted, sadistic, cruel behaviour imaginable. People might disagree with me and say that if someone had information pertaining the bomb that would kill thousands of innocent people, you would want to know about it. If they were not willing to give it up then torture would be necessary I know it is grim but is one life worth as many as thousands of lives. But these sinuous don’t occur on a daily bases.
It isn’t just people from other countries who commit them but even US citizens have done terrorists acts in America also. I personally think we need to get it under control not just in the United States but all around the world. Since there is no need for innocent people to die because of stupid things others do and especially when saying they are doing it for God. It just really confuses me since I can’t understand how people can just want to kill others especially if they sacrifice their lives also. I feel
There has been an online debate on why Stephen Paddock the Las Vegas gunman hasn’t been labeled a terrorist. The news has been describing him as a loner, gambler and an accountant but yet to find a motive. People are wondering why the term terrorist hasn’t been used to describe him. People feel that there is a disparity between how white suspects and suspects of color are described. They feel if he had been Muslim the word terrorist would have been used to describe him instantly.
I find it despicable that someone could kill an innocent person just because they want to escape reality with a dangerous drug. Then there is the theory that enemy soldiers are innocent because those people just have different ideals, but that is another paper. This presentation made me think about how different my life would be if I was an opium user. I would never have any money because it would all go to my drug habit. I also would not be in anywhere near as healthy as I am currently.
