This shows that video games were not the cause of this tragedy, but that we need stricter gun laws and regulations on who owns guns. Furthermore, the source reveals..” Harper-Mercer was known as a recluse who was obsessed with violent gaming and the digital world, even finding supporters on those sites. On an anonymous chat room website called 4chan, there are messages that talk about what he was planning to do.”(Fletcher 2). This does not portray video game violence because this student got inspiration from a shooter game to carry it out in real life. He perfectly planned it out and told everybody but not everyone believed the threat.
Beatty 's motives were to protect himself from higher powers, revealing that people will do almost anything to protect themselves or people they love. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, after driving to Montag’s house, Beatty asked him to burn it down. Some would say that this was Beatty’s challenging Montag or that Beatty was doing right and protecting himself. However if Beatty had not taken the calls and burned Montag 's home down, he would have had consequences for disobeying the rules. The government in the book had been brainwashing their citizens into believing books were bad for society and were constantly distracting them.
Nowadays, many people in the United States spend too much time discussing the balance between security and liberty. They criticize the government and condemn the security measures. However, they don't want to admit that many terrorist attacks were prevented by wiretapping, monitoring the internet, and so on. Professor Levinson states that it is “spying”. I would call it “a desire to defend the people, to protect their lives and health from the terrorist
On the other side, bin Laden had very many followers, including all of those in Al- Qaida. The terrorist group demonstrated old Islamic beliefs, but abused them with new technology (Graham para. 3). Many people look up to him and say that he demonstrated how to use power and not conform to others. Also, Al-Qaida members believe that the assassination was unjust because he was not armed during the invasion by U.S troops.
It is safe to say, that Jones had a need to be in control. He didn’t let his followers do anything without his consent. When a congressman from California traveled to Jonestown to see what was really going on, Jones had him executed, and immediately after demanded his followers to drink the poison. The interference from the government might have scared Jones because that interference could possibly cause him to lose his cult and thereby his power and control. With the high levels of testosterone as well as low levels of serotonin in Jones’ body, he wasn’t able to
The ”Birthday Bombing” as it was known, had scared both of them. Bass demanded that something be done about the Rebel faction in the city, taking the first steps by having the bomber and his family executed. An example had to be set. He knew that Miles hadn’t agreed with his actions, but the subject had been dropped and not brought up again. They had implemented new steps for those who wanted access into the city and had put crews on the walls, shoring up them up, looking for any breach.
This proves to be significant because this shows the lengths that Ronnie is willing to go to in order to keep his friend safe. Withholding information from the police about a murder can make you an accessory to the crime, despite knowing this he was willing to lie and possibly endanger himself. Obstructing justice so that your friend can be safe is a very difficult decision to make, as it affects more than just you. The parents of Gene Hanlon would be devastated to not know how their son died, the police will have spent lots of their time and money on a case that only two people truly understand how it unfolded. The soldier in the story “Gregory” also made many sacrifices for his friend, but in a much more subtle way.
The President may have not ordered the burglarizing to happen because he didn’t want a negative sentiment put upon him but might have had some knowledge about it. As it was stated above in the quote, he went to extreme lengths to cover up what had happened, and he even went as far to commit an obstruction of justice and abuse of presidential power. He went to great lengths to keep this quiet and he must have known about the whole scheme even before the first break in happened, so he could be prepared to hide it as best as possible. On some of the tapes, from his office, it suggests that he did indeed know about the whole scandal. In an article it says “…three days after the crime, Nixon, in a tape-recorded conversation with H.R.
During Montag’s career as a fireman, he stole books from burning houses, even though it was illegal, very dangerous, and could possibly cost Montag his life. Throughout the story, the reader meets many characters that impact Guy, the way he thinks and the way he views society as a whole. Clarisse McClellan helped Montag discover that he wasn’t happy, while his fire captain Beatty, taught Montag that life isn’t just a straight path, it
Refugees are people who leave their home country in order to seek safety. Over the past several years, terrorist acts against United States, plus the Paris attack, media is labeling terrorism as mulsim.Terrorists attacks affect all of us .we experience sorrow and anger at the loss of life. However, for Muslim there is another layer of grief which is the terrorist label. We become suspicion, we are call terrorist.
