In “Identities” by W.D. Valgardson, the author shows through her work how ignorant society has become. Based on the setting, the man was misinterpreted by the police officer.

No matter how rich or poor, good looking or not, able or disable are all judged no matter what the situations are.

Another value is that when a man is encountered for the first time the audience is given facts about them. As it is a movie, one of the main limitations is that it has to fit all the information into a certain amount of time, in this case 120 minutes.

Rodger tries to steal a woman’s purse her name was Mrs. Jones, who afterward takes him in and teaches him a huge lesson on good things come from good actions, which I think changed him.
