“Atzerodt had doubts about his assignment. He would not do it, he said,” (Swanson 27) writes James L. Swanson in his novel Chasing Lincoln’s Killer. George Atzerodt was a slow-witted German member of Booth’s band of conspirators.

This is similar to the government in Fahrenheit 451. On page thirty-one of the novel, Montag asks Captain Beatty what happened to a man whose library they had “fixed,” and the Captain says, “They took him screaming off to the asylum…Any man’s insane who thinks he can fool the government and us.” The government in Fahrenheit 451 is powerful and strict just like the government in “Harrison
Decades later, both Jaffrey and Clifford were well into old age. Clifford had hated his cousin ever since he was framed for the death of his uncle, and, due to old age and seclusion, had become slightly insane. Jaffrey went to the house of seven gables, where Clifford was living, with the intent of asking him where to find the famed deed mentioned in the previous pages. While Clifford’s sister and caretaker, Hepzibah, went to fetch her brother, Clifford killed Jaffrey. It was Jaffrey’s greed that began the rivalry between the two cousins, and the same greed that eventually led his cousin to kill
Transitioning to Act Three we see a side of Elizabeth that wouldn’t expect which would be dishonesty to save John from his death. Elizabeth being known through Salem for never telling a lie, is asked to tell the truth about John committing adultery so they can both be free. “I came to think he fancied her. And so one night I lost my wits I think, and put out on the highroad,” (1148).

Beverly conveniently points out that he was too unstable to be an FBI agent in her first conversation with Will. Bev: “Never been an FBI agent?” Will: "Strict screening procedures.“ Bev: "Detects instability. You unstable?” He is treated sensitively and cautiously by many of the main characters on the show. Alana warns Jack, “Don’t let him get too close.” indicating that Jack should take responsibility for Will’s well-being because he is not strong enough to take responsibility for his own well-being. There is apparently some precident for worrying about Will that the audience does not know, so we take the characters’ word for it.

He immediately ran up to me and begged me to keep quiet and not to tell Audrey, my closest friend. When I walked into this situation, I was the receiver of the secret while the teller turned out to be my good guy friend who just got caught in a lie. In this situation, the random girl whom I just met didn 't care that I walked in on them making out, because she didn’t care he had a girlfriend. She sat there while Nick explained the situation to me. The gender had an effect on this situation because it wasn 't the random girls fault, but it was the boy.
An instance of this is when Okonkwo accidentally shoots and kills a boy resulting in his seven-year exile to his mother’s land, once he reaches his mother’s land he slips into a depression, reluctant to work or progress much at all in any sense, as exemplified in the quote, “his [Okonkwo’s] life had been ruled by a great passion—to become one of the lords of the clan… then everything had been broken. He had been cast out of his clan like a fish to dry” (Achebe, 97 Online). This shows how Okonkwo slipped into a state of emptiness, his greatest passion was to become a figurehead of his clan and yet he fell short, sending him crashing into a depression. In particular, Okonkwo was weakened to see everything he built with utmost effort burned to the ground, he fell to a point of devastation in which he could do little but doubt himself as the world he built came crumbling down around him. He was broken through this failure, although he did eventually come back to his strength, staying strong to come back to his clan in his most climactic
The way it was done there was no question that Steve Avery did it, but if it was done correctly he wouldn’t have got arrested for the sexual assault in the first place. The sketch artist never drew what Penny told him. Instead he drew a picture of Steven Avery and asked her was it him. Penny had no choice but to say yes because it seemed very familiar. Another error was a sheriff being involved in the case so much that didn’t even have anything to do with him.

His initial intention was not to harm anyone and simply ask the insurance executives not to use his private bathroom (McBride 14). Get on up, the 2014 film about the Godfather of Soul, showcased this incident in a different light. James Brown was portrayed as a wild and crazy man who ran from the cops in the opening scene, but that was not quite the story (McBride 14). 1988 was a tough year for James; his band had parted ways, the IRS came after him twice, and he could no longer maintain musical career. James relied on drugs more now than he could have imagined.
