There were people dying at every second of the Reign of Terror, dozens of people were dying because of Robespierre and the guillotine. This was considered as a humane way of killing people because everyone died the same way and it was immediate (Doc. F). Unfortunately, many of the citizens were dying without a good reason or a fair trial. The citizens and counter-revolutionaries were being executed for the slightest thing such as saying a careless word of criticism about the government.
Odysseus saw all his men die in a way a human would rarely see. PTSD is when you see something tragic and can’t forget what happened and that’s what Odysseus has from all his men that die in a tragic way. Human get PTSD not only from sexual way, you get it also by seeing something you shouldn’t see like people dying in a way you wouldn’t imagine. The first cause that Odysseus catches PTSD is when he and his men went to the cyclops land. At the cyclops land Polyphemus killed two of Odysseus men well he ate them.
It was aimed at gathering weapon and spreading propaganda. The Khmer Rouge regime was extremely brutal. The executed people who could work or make the journey did not go to camp. People who refused to leave were killed and those who didn’t leave fast enough or obey orders were killed too. Most of the population, urban and rural, Khmer Rouge took out their anger and frustration out on the nation Vietnamese
History refers to this time as the era of the Killing Fields since over two million people died from being overworked, dehumanized, malnourishment, and conducting executions both arbitrary and selective, killing anyone they caught attempting or accidentally breaking even minor rules. Also, when people were to
American society was not entirely in favor of American involvement in Vietnam. In fact, around the United States people held protests against the war. The peace sign became a prevalent symbol in the antiwar movement. In Full Metal Jacket, these protests are referenced on multiple occasions. Private Joker is a “combat correspondent”, so his job is to record the stories of American war heroes that will be used to help sell Americans on the war and to convince soldiers to continue fighting even though society did not support their choice.
The front page photo was of dead bodies, children and women, that were killed by American GI’s (Government Issue). The headline of the article read “1st Photos of Viet Mass Slaying”. This was the first newspaper publication anywhere to publish pictures which later was known as the My Lai Massacre. People didn’t get wind of the massacre just out of the blue. Ron Haeberle, a cameraman for the Army, he was in My Lai witnessing and documenting what was happening by taking pictures of the massacre.
They were throwing snowballs and calling the soldiers names. Eventually, Officer Preston ordered his men to fire. They shot into the crowd and killed five people (Document B). This event also showed how cruel the British are. They murdered people who were not putting them in any danger.
Over 11 million civilians were murdered in between the time period of January 30, 1933 to May 8, 1945. These innocent people were murdered in various, inhumane ways such as firing line, terrible living conditions, gassing with the use of carbon dioxide and Zyklon B, and forcing people to work until death. The Holocaust is one of, if not the darkest time in the history of human life on Earth. Many people committed suicide or suicide by guard because they did not and could not stand the conditions they were forced to live in. Most knew what their fate was and when it came time for them to meet their fate, they would kill themselves or have guards kill them.
Participants were incentivized by money, food, and land to partake in the killings. In “A Short History of the Rwandan Genocide”, it discusses how the Interahamwe (an anti-Tutsi youth organization established by Hutu extremists) established identification card checking roadblocks that would kill Tutsis on sight. Following this, Hutu extremists killed anyone in office that was Tutsi or a Hutu moderate, and assembled groups to go door to door killing Tutsis (Rosenberg). Many were tortured before being killed. Tutsi women were raped, possibly kept as sex slaves, defiled, tortured, and killed.
The Vietnam War started off with the backing of the American people. Due to the fear of the spread of communism, the American people believed that defending South Vietnamese from the communist north was necessary. However, this way of thinking did not last throughout the war. As the war dragged on, the American people began to realize how more and more soldiers were being killed and yet there was no end to the war in sight. This negativity towards the war was only further fueled by how the television was covered in the war.
Even though this was a staged photo, the complete brutality and pure atrociousness of the moment showed the American public just how deep the corruption of this war ran. To shoot a man in the head point blank in the middle of the street is not something that sat well with the American public. As said by Marien, "Some lasting images of the war experience were created only in photography" (368). This photo remains to this day one of the most recognizable photos of the war, and among the most tough to look at. This display of pure savagery showed how demoralizing and dehumanizing this conflict had become, and added to the ever growing anti-war sentiment.
A CASE OF WARTIME RAPE AND MURDER This paper will be concerned with a crime involving U.S. Army soldiers, which took place on March 12, 2006 in the midst of the war in Iraq. Five soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division (Steven Green, Jesse Spielman, James Barker, Paul Cortez, and Bryan Howard) entered a home in the town of Mahmudiya, where they took turns raping a 14-year old girl while holding her parents and younger sister at gunpoint in a different room. Following the rape, they shot and killed the girl along with her family members. They then poured kerosene over the girl’s body and set in on fire in an attempt to conceal the evidence (Von Zielbauer, 2006). The soldiers killed the girl and her family because they did not want any survivors
Authorities say four marines were killed in an attack on a military recruiting center, and 3 were injured. The shooting took place a few minutes apart. He sprayed numerous amounts of rounds. The officials were not allowed to release too much information. They had no idea what caused the shooting.
This is when the Rwandan president, Habyarimana, was killed after his plane was shot down. Hutu extremists were thought to be behind the attack. That same night, several groups of individuals were sent out to kill the Tutsi. The organized groups made their way through the towns and killed all the Tutsi and anyone involved with them. They were killed with whatever weapon the Hutu had in hand at the time or were blown up in churches where they had gone to hide.
