Law Abiding Citizen In the movie Law Abiding Citizen, Clyde Shelton is seeking revenge on the American Justice System because in his mind, justice hasn’t been served. Clyde was an innocent and honorable family man until his wife and child were brutally raped and murdered right in front of him where he was helpless and couldn’t fight back or help them, leaving him emotionally scarred for the rest of his life. One of the men who broke into his home were convicted and given the death penalty and the other who actually did the killing and raping got off easy with only a few years in prison. Because of this and the event Clyde was forced to experience, his mental stability is not intact and he feels he has to do a number of things to prove that the system is corrupt.

They have succeeded to capture the sheriff. Then, Bonnie took Clyde’s gun and held it as she wanted to take a picture with the sheriff. This moment was very important for Bonnie and Clyde because they wanted to show the whole world they are in control, that they love their publicity, violence and symbolic attraction to guns. With this scene, they wanted to create their own image and be in the news so everyone can read about them. However, there is not any scene in the film that Clyde is not seen without his gun.
In the scene where Clyde talks her into joining up with him it is easy to decipher how uninterested she was with her previous life by the look on her face.

While he was robbing people he didn't see much of a purpose in it until he formed the Barrow Gang. So basically Bonnie and Clyde's life of crime started from the lack of value and excitement in their previous lives which is a reflection of how people lived during that time.
After most people hear what Perry has gone through you immediately give him a get out of jail free card right? You think that since he had a difficult upbringing he should be exempt from receiving the death penalty? Although you may think this, this is certainly not an excuse for such a violent act. Throughout In Cold Blood, Capote attempts to portray to the reader that Smith in a way should be exempt from the crime he commited and how one should not blame it on Smith himself, but his psychological background. Specifically when Al Dewey, the head of the Clutter murder investigation, states how the crime was not in fact Smiths fault.

The cops arrived, and calmed me down enough to take my statement my parents were called, and came home the next day. All of us were brokenhearted over Tommy, who got stabbed just for trying to help me. The following years were hard. I was in therapy for a year afterwards, and every anniversary of the event, I think over what happened. The reason my husband asked me about it was, years later after I had begun to date and finally married, I saw a news story about two robbers arrested not far from where we live.
Unfortunately, for Sarah, Roger has a watertight alibi – he had spent the entire nigh in Phoenix with an escort and there is nothing to suggest that the ding on his vehicle, which he got on the way back, is anything but genuine.
