Multiple witnesses admitted to having seen Steve Harmon the day of the crime, or even seeing him at the drugstore during the hour of the robbery. Towards the middle of the trial, Steve writes in his journal “I thought, as I tried not to throw up, that I wanted to be tough like them” This quote shows that he wanted to act like Bobo and Osvaldo. He wanted to be a part of the gang. However, not that he is, not that the is on trial for committing a serious crime, he doesn’t like it. Steve is regretting whatever he did as a part of this day.
We also know that if he had made that same threat before, he didn’t follow through then, either. He specifically made this threat to Lady and Lord Capulet and Lady and Lord Montague. However, later in the play, Romeo, Tybalt, and Mercutio fight and Prince Escalus doesn’t follow through with the original threat even though he clearly had the authority to do so. There are several ways the prince could have successfully ended the feud. For example, a fine or jail time for those involved in a fight, or even if he had started to help the families negotiate their disputes when he noticed the feud starting.
I have recently read the short story “Priscilla and the Wimps” by Richard Peck. In response to the prompt, I do not believe that Priscilla’s treatment of Monk was justified. When dealing with conflict, it is crucial not to resort to physical violence, otherwise it may further escalate the conflict. Technically, if you resort to physical violence to try to stop bullying, you are just as bad as the bully. In the story, Monk was picking on Melvin (Peck 2), who was Priscilla’s closest friend (Peck 1), and Priscilla ended up putting him in a hammerlock and then locking him in a locker for a whole week (Peck 3).
There are two lines that look like they were written at different times: Don’t trust anyone but E. And then, The cross has the answer. My blood runs cold” (Dead Girls Don’t Lie 43). It was Eduardo who gave Jaycee the letter and in the letter it says to trust him but he is a Mexican that use to be part of a gang this is why Jaycee is having a hard time trusting him. In Breaking Beautiful, Allie doesn’t remember what happened at the accident and some people are saying she killed Trip. Since she doesn’t know what happened that night she needs to keep the abuse a secret because if someone found out they would think that she killed Trip because of
Thomas Putnam was accusing all of his neighbors of witchcraft so that he can buy their land. Giles Corey tells the court that a man told him that Putnam was wrongfully accusing people so he could buy their land, but Giles would not reveal to the court who gave him this information. Giles Corey states “you know well why not! He’ll lay in jail if I give his name!” (Miller 187). He’s telling the court the reason why he wont give the mans name up because he doesn’t want the man to be put in jail.
Omar Portee was sentenced in 2003 to 50 years in prison for murder conspiracy, credit card fraud and drug selling (The Bloods: in Prison, 2013). Leonard Mackenzie is also is incarcerated in upstate New York (The Bloods: in Prison, 2013). It is said that blood set now lack unity and is each sets for themselves (Austin, 2014). Blood members have also refrained from wearing the Blood gang affiliated colors so as to not draw attention to themselves (Buntin, 2013). Blood gang sets still manage to continue in their business of illegal drug smuggling and all their other various illegal
Uncle Frank is accused of sexually assaulting his female Indian patients, but Wes Hayden does not put him in jail. David dives into manhood after being exposed to a whole new set of ideas that changes his perspective. David is changed by the events of 1948 because he finds out Uncle Frank isn’t the hero he thinks he is, he has to accept that Uncle Frank will not be punished and his parents finally involves him in a conversation about Uncle Frank’s wrongdoings. One of the ways David is changed by the events of 1948 was when David finds out Uncle Frank has been sexually assaulting his
Lennie’s had some run-ins with the law previously, “The guys in Weed started a party out to lynch Lennie.” (Steinbeck 42) He probably had other instances where George had to get him out of trouble. The police didn’t understand at that time why Lennie was slower, so without George explaining, Lennie would be in tribulation. People just assume Lennie is crazy, “It’s just funny a cuckoo like him and a smart guy like you traveling together.” (Steinbeck 39) People during that time period didn’t have the knowledge we have now, so they assumed Lennie was a “cuckoo”. The police would’ve charged Lennie with murder or
By July 25, 1991, he was charged with four counts of murder, as the hearings went on, Dahmer kept gaining charges. During a preliminary hearing, he pleaded guilty to fifteen counts of murder, but claimed it was because he was insane. Jeffrey Dahmer’s trial finally began on January 30, 1992. The defense tried to make an insanity plea but failed. Many psychiatrists were called to the stand to testify on behalf of the insanity plea but they proved that Dahmer was not mentally ill and the plea was not granted.
Rudy knew the answer, but he wanted to see what Deutscher would do, not out of curiosity, but out of his own stubborn nature. Rudy was compensated with broken ribs. Another time when Rudy is stubborn is when he purposefully false started during the Hitler Youth Carnival. He false started twice and was disqualified. He then said, “‘I did it on purpose.’” But then Liesel asked,” ‘But why, Rudy?
