Even when Elizabeth pleads to John, warning him, he still shrugs it off as nothing, because he believes his extramarital affair wasn’t a big deal, this also ties into his arrogance in believing that no harm can come to his family. Any sane person would realize the potential outcome and try to reason with him about the accusations.
Some would argue that the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln was justified because he disapproved of slavery. However, the assassination was an unconstitutional act that created more tension in the U.S. The assassination was not justified because all life is precious.

The tragedy begins with Iago’s soliloquy, here Iago’s envy towards Cassio is immediately conspicuous. He states that Cassio has “Never set a squadron in the field, Nor the division of a battle knows, More than a spinster”. Consequently Iago’s envy is mistaken for jealousy, which is why he comes across as the villain in the play. However, he also tries to disguise his villainous actions by “justifying” them. “Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty” “I am not what I am.”
His defense of Tom Robinson is very inadequate. He calls no witnesses on Tom 's behalf, he allowed damaging evidence to enter with no rebuttal, he doesn 't seek a change of venue for more neutral grounds, and he did not even prepare for the trial it was like this
