In general, police holds the authority to maintain the safety and prosperity of the citizens. In fact, there are a lot of misconduct done by the police officers particularly towards black people, which led to the issue of police brutality. According to American Journal Public Health, “Black men are three times more likely to be killed by legal intervention than white men” (CNN). Recalling the incident of Oscar Grant, when he was on his way back from San Francisco to Oakland after the New Year’s day, he was fatally shot by BART police officer, Johannes Mehserle, because the officer mistakenly thought that Grant was reaching out for his gun to the fact that Grant was unarmed (Wikipedia). Under this circumstance, this signifies that police officer treats black people with hostility.
The narrator of “The Tell-tale Heart” is a madman who does not believe he is insane but continues to show otherwise during the telling of how he kills the old man to police officers. After a week of planning the murder, he still did not find satisfactory because he could still hear the beating of the old man’s heart. Also, if one is not a madman then why would one commit such a crime just because of an eye. While the narrator explains the story of how and why he commits murder, one can conclude that some details are unrealistic throughout his story. Which leads him to come off as a psychopath because of the details and the reason behind killing the old man.
Crime is happening around us all the time, it is more common than people realize and similarly criminals are around us all the time too. Whether it is a poor man stealing some food from a store or a sociopath who is planning to kill someone, there is no definition of what a criminal looks like. In most cases death penalty has been considered the only way to justify a victim without acknowledging the fact there is so much more to the story and people are not even aware of it. However, that does not mean that every kind of criminal deserves a death penalty and such kind of inhuman punishments doesn’t always help in deterring crime.
In recent history, mostly American, students, and even some church goers, have endured the fear of death approaching. Death crawled up to them in the form of man, and a man armed no less. That impending doom has not subsided, and under new fronts, has grown by a leader’s own malevolence. There exists no American method to deter these attacks, leaving many students continuously vulnerable and afraid of bullets passing through their bodies. Indeed, these students, and the general public, do not often consciously think of these problems, but whenever the idea arises in some other part of the country, a paranoid fear overtakes them; these dreadful events have their own history to discuss, in collaboration with that dread of impending death.
It’s scary how fear can take the place of everything else in someone’s mind, even a person’s sense of judgement. Fear changed the life of a former SEAL trainee. Dustin Turner, (also known as Dusty) and Billy Joe Brown were accused and convicted of murdering Jennifer Evans in Virginia on June 19, 1995 at a nightclub. Many people see this tragic night differently, but the truth is, only those three-people witnessed this and only two are alive to tell their stories. Sadly, two people aren’t always going to have one same situation.

Everyone knows what they are doing, they are aware they are ending a life, and living a life of violence, but something brought them into the gang and they focus their attention on that one thing to execute the tasks given to them. Towards the end of the video, the girl’s killer says this about the gang he wasted his life defending, “We fight to protect territory that isn’t ours to begin with. We cover ourselves with guns to show we are tough, but inside we are weak.” Like all of those guys in jail, like the girl who became a rat, and Chester who agreed to be a part of the video, they get to a point where all the killing, violence and drugs take a toll on them and they want out. To most of them there is no “out,” because they know the task of getting out is extremely dangerous and there is a slim to none chance of completing it alive.
In the political stance, it is obvious how the corrupt law enforcement negatively affected the people from Southie, specifically his family.
