Q: If Rainsford from “The Most Dangerous Game” went home and admitted to his involvement in the story and was put on trial for General Zaroff’s, what do you think would be the outcome? Rainsford murdered a human, everyone has their own opinions on whether it was right or wrong. Rainsford was helped off the island and Rainsford felt guilty so Rainsford confessed to killing General Zaroff. Rainsford was put on trial for General Zaroff’s murder, If the judge sees what Rainsford did as a homicide then Rainsford will be put in jail but if the judge see it as surviving then the judge might feel differently. But I do not think Rainsford will get away with no punishment because either way he murdered a human being.
Julius and Ethel Rosenberg The Rosenberg trial that ended in double execution on the electric chair in 1953 is one of the most controversial trials of all time. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were husband and wife living in New York City working for the U.S. Signal Corporation. During this time they were both accused and later found guilty of illegally providing information about the U.S atomic bomb research to the Soviet Union. Ethel never had actual evidence gathered against her but only called in for questioning about her husband’s involvement. However, Julius Rosenberg was guilty of spying for the Soviet Union because of the way Julius chose to live his life, the evidence that was gathered against him, and the affect his death had on the
However, the main contributing cause to his wrongful conviction was eyewitness misidentification. According to Walker (2015), eyewitness misidentification is the leading cause of wrongful convictions with “72% of cases being wrongfully convicted based on eye witness testimony.” Another thing I noticed while looking at The Innocence Project, which was also discussed in the book, was racial bias. In the book, they mentioned “wrongful convictions involve a strong racial disparity, with 62 percent of the Innocent Projects 302 cases involving African Americans.”

In the Penal Colony by Franz Kafka demonstrates a symbiotic relationship between the law and technology. Although technology and law may seem like two completely different topics, Kafka does a brilliant job of exemplifying the dependent nature of both subjects. At a quick glance, it may seem like the two do not have any type of relationship in the story. However, as the reader delves deeper into the true meaning behind Kafka’s words and intentions, the true nature of the relationship is revealed. Kafka shows that in In the Penal Colony, however complicated and advanced technology may be, without a just law, the technology will prove to be ineffective and will come crumbling down.
Introduction For my paper, I chose case study number one that follows Mr. John Burke who committed the crime of first-degree murder. I will explain the process John Burke’s crime and what process he will be going through while in the American criminal justice system. This process includes a number of steps starting with Mr. Burke’s initial arrest and later ending with Mr. Burke’s subsequent release from prison and entry back into society on his own unsupervised. I will also touch on what I feel are the strongest and weakest parts of our criminal justice system, and I will give supporting evidence to my claims. Brief Description of the Crime John Burke’s crime falls under the first-degree murder statute because he killed Joseph Ronan, essentially;
This strain is not just emotional but also bleeds into the physical realm when Fowler becomes impotent, “She was holding him, wanting him, and he wished he could make love with her but he could not” (Dubus 1136). In an effort to fix a wrong doing against his family Fowler has exacerbated the situation. The killings in the short story, “Killings”, are murders. There is not justification for murder. The killings therefore are not justified.
Jury’s Verdict Society must fight against those who rip society apart by breaking laws and acting unethically. Citizens must make the right decisions in order to maintain a healthy community for many years to come. As jury for the trial of Jack Merridew, we have concluded Jack Merridew to be guilty, for he is responsible for the deaths of Simon and Piggy. When deciding an accused person’s fate, there should be no bias involved, since members of the jury have to look at the case from multiple points of view. The factors that suggested Jack Merridew’s guilt include why he and his tribe had not used traps rather than spears, his attempt to murder Ralph, and how the leader should be the one responsible for a group's actions.
