Due to the fact he is a modern hero, all modern heroes should exhibit this. Another time Atticus demonstrates this is when the trial in which he is defending a black man is drawing to a close. When Atticus is pleading to the jury he makes this statement regarding fairness, “I am confident that you gentlemen will review without passion the evidence you have heard, come to a decision and restore this defendant to his family. In the name of [G-d], do your duty” (275). This seems like standard closing remarks but in this context, it means to judge the case without the racism one would expect from an all-white jury.
In simple terms, Mario Puzo has kept the image of the epic hero, especially, when considering the relationship that is apparent in the heroes’ thirstiness for revenge, and ultimately their passion for glory and pride. Under revenge, both Achilles and Michael Corleone restore their pride through murder, one among his army and the other among the famous New York families. As modern audience, we cannot afford but to remark that in a modern world where Mario Puzo’s masterpiece is chronicled revenge by murder is unacceptable by law, it is the concern of the police forces. However, we see that law and order is absent in Puzo’s novel, it is instead a world driven by chaos and social disobedience. This reminds us of the epic atmosphere, where man battles against man, and where stable institutions that are supposed to regulate their actions are absent.
Tom begins to change once he witnesses it. His anxiety and guilt about Muff Potter’s fate are clear in the scenes he tries to get Huck to reconsider their vow to secrecy.

When he lost his friends, one by one. The full of experience always makes him to be a rational person.
Whenever we begin hearing of two conflicting forces, we automatically assume that we’re on the hero’s side. This is the case in Les Miserables. Instead of seeing Javert’s side, we see the view of the law breaking Valjean. Javert is the true good in Les Miserables against Valjean. The easiest way to see this is by Javert’s position, “Javert owned his position to the protection of Monsieur Chabouillet…” (57), he is a highly respected officer.
At the beginning of the play, Othello is confident. But underneath his air of eloquence and dignity, he secretly internalizes insults about his race. However, Othello still perceives himself to be an important and desirable man given his prestigious position and military successes. By feeding Othello lies laced with his racial insecurities, Iago conflicts him. Iago says that Othello drastically changes “with his poison”: Dangerous conceits are in their natures poisons, Which at the first are scarce found to distaste, But with a little act upon the blood Burn like the mines of sulfur.
Two people can appear to be polar opposites, but turn out to be more similar than what meets the eye. Surprisingly, the Barber and Captain Torres are particularly similar people.

As this plays out, Blacksad manages to shoot the ‘rat’ and the ‘goanna’, questioning the slowly dying ‘goanna’, until he eventually uncovers the name of the culprit. Ivo Statoc is the most powerful and richest businessman in the city.

This ends with a confrontation between Statoc and Blacksad. Statoc offers Blacksad a job and then money as a form of justice, of which Blacksad rejects both and shoots Statoc.
Scarface is a film that is loved by a lot of people even though the main star of the movie was a Cuban immigrant who sells drugs and kills people. Deviance is displayed throughout the film while you follow Tony “Scarface” Montana on his rise to power. Some of the deviant behavior that is displayed in the film would be drug use/selling, and murder. These behaviors are portrayed in a sympathetic light because you feel bad for the struggle Tony had come up from. The movie is unsympathetic when it came to Tony murdering his best friend when he finds out that he and Tony’s sister are together which leads to Tony’s sister trying to kill him.
His first indication of his egotistic behavior is when he embarks on the task of creating life. His egotism and cowardice manifest itself even more when it not only leads to the death of his younger brother William, but also to that of Justine the young girl accused of murder, and his childhood friend Clerval( Storment, 2002). Victor claims at hand to admit to the murder so that he will be incarcerated however, he abstains from coming clean in light of the fact that he is embarrassed about himself and his unsuccessful experiment which has hurt his sense of self-pride furthermore society
For their whole lives, people of a higher level of influence have told them what to do and when. But with BlueServo and websites like it, now it was their turn to influence other people’s lives. As with any bad habit, it soon becomes not enough, people felt the need to not only capture the criminals but administer their own idea of justice. A member of the Minuteman, an organized union of these surveillance addicted individuals, believed it was his turn to enact his version of justice. Unfortunately, one of the side effects of viewership is a complete misunderstanding of reality and this lead to the murder of two innocent Hispanic people.
Atticus proves himself a good lawyer, however, justice is not served until Boo Radley finally kills demented Bob Ewell. In the end, Atticus decides that that in order to have justice for both Boo and Tom, he and Sheriff Tate must look the other way and protect Boo from further scrutiny. When Atticus states, "The one thing that doesn 't abide by majority rule is a person 's conscience” (111), he unknowingly predicts the a situation in which he finds
Hollywood and social media has blown the police subculture way out of proportion, portraying police officers as crooked cops who abuse their authoritative powers and beats every suspect they encounter during their tour of duty. Critics who are opposed to law enforcement services can argue that a police organization is nothing but a bunch of racist, power hunger, and trigger happy individuals. On the other hand, supporters of law enforcement will work cooperatively with the department in order to prevent crime, enforce the law, preserve the peace, and provide a safe environment (Houston Police Department General Orders, 2012). Studies from Wine (2014) revealed that “black and white officers were equally likely to shoot African-American suspects” (para. 6).
