It appeared the building was possessed by some evil power (Kubrick suggested it could be because the house was built on the Native Americans’ cemetery) that killed some of visitors and workers.

I killed him for money – and a woman – and I didn’t get the money and I didn’t get the woman.
There are times in life where people do commit a small mistake, or a huge crime, but what really matters is if one will listen to their conscience. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the main character lives with an old man who has an eye that “resembled that of a vulture--a pale blue eye, with a film over it.” The story revolves around the main character’s obsession over the eye, and how he got rid of it-- by murdering the old man. Towards the end of the story, the young man confesses to the police about his insane stunt after they searched his house. In “The Tell-Tale Heart,” Edgar Allan Poe focused on having the reader know more than the secondary character, using description, and using a first-person narrator, to build suspense.

A legion of people believes that Tom Robinson’s actions ultimately led to his demise, and that he is just another worthless human. In actuality, the father of the accuser, Bob Ewell, was the cause of Tom’s death.

The case of Kenneth Parks is explained, since he was a man who murdered his mother-in-law and attempted to murder his father-in-law all while he was sleepwalking. Eagleman begs the question of whether it was Parks fault, and if it was not, then is if all criminals are not faulted for committing a crime when they have a mental disorder. He asks how far the scale can go to forgive a person of their crimes, a main theme of his writing. The topic is interesting, since gunman that fire away at others because of a tumor in their amygdala, for example, may only have done what they did in the heat of the moment. Though the question remains as to why that person did not see a doctor so that the issue could have been corrected, so it could have also been their fault.
