A dashboard camera captured an officer shooting down a young black man, a video that was not released to the public for over a year.

Both these tales are dark, horrific, and intense stories that will make the hair stand up on the back of the neck. Whether it be your own imagination, or the imagination of a director, they will give spine-tingling on the edge of your seat chills, when protruding the theme of revenge. The story “The Cask of Amontillado” begins as the narrator, Montressor, tells the reader of the “... thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge” (533) and how he would get revenge.
Mercutio ends up paying the ultimate price, death. Romeo is filled with vengeance and the need for revenge, so he fights Tybalt. Romeo is blinded by hate, sorrow, and anger that he kills Tybalt.
