There is an unlimited amount of questions that can come from the wrongful convictions. The question posed should the state even compensate for those who were wrongfully convicted. The state did what they felt was best under the circumstances and evidence they had. The taxpayer dollars should not have to compensate for making decisions they were forced to make. The suggestions have been made to set the wrongfully convicted with a sort of house and perhaps a job but nothing in the realm of a payment of millions of dollars.
In conclusion, the blog post by Larry Cuban “Why Everyone Shouldn 't go to College” does a good job to make the reader question some facts about our current education system. Overall, Cuban’s use of writing tactics excel in some areas, but fail in others. Such as, Cubans use of pathos, appealing emotion, does a good job. However, the author’s use of logic, or logos, is only moderately effective. On top of all, Cuban fails to effectively build ethos by making his work credible.
According to Douglas, one factor that led them away from the parents was that typically when someone is trying to stage a murder, they would not have the mindset to take time to write a three-page ransom note. Next, JonBenet was sexually assaulted and the DNA found in her underwear and from the skin under her fingernails was not a match to either of the parents, her brother, or anyone else that had given samples. Another factor, was that although the media was reporting that the handwriting samples from Patsy proved that she wrote the ransom note. In actuality, similarities between the two were very few. In fact, Patsy’s handwriting was only similar on the lowest possible scale and countless numbers of people could also fall into that category (Douglas, 449).
He somehow rearranged the twenty-six letters of the alphabet into a peaceful argument that responded to a group of criticizing clergymen. I’ve chosen to discuss two of the devices he used to make this argument so effective: tone and pathos. The tone of the letter portrays King’s attitude towards different subjects. The first example of this is seen in the quote, “I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who
Although the past cannot be changed, the future is in your power. But what if power is the reason the future cannot be changed? The Pearl, by John Steinbeck, is a timeless story that is filled with metaphors for how avarice takes over humans. Although there is no easy way to get rid of it, Kino goes through many challenges to free himself from the troubles that come with possessing the power the pearl held. Kino went from a loving human to a dehumanized figure because he saw great wealth in the pearl, attacked in order to maintain the power it held and lost the ability to have emotions.
Romance, mystery, death, murder, wealth, power, and more. But at the epicenter sits Gatsby, the source of the suffering, whose bleeding heart went from figurative to literal in less than 200 pages. Analyzing his character is the key to discovering why this story went the way it did. Did he do it for honor? Out of a sense of closure?
After all, “Good books don’t give up all their secrets at once” (Stephen King). It is the suspense that makes readers continue to turn the pages, and the suspense is what makes most people who love mysteries love them. Brother Cadfael did not know all the answers to the problem, and neither does the reader. The reader are left in the dark as to crucial details, and when they are discovered, one becomes even more intrigued as to the final solution. Adding to the suspense is usually a dark mood and a creepy effect.
The Cherokee focus on the discovery of gold, however, seemed to only enhance the Georgia legislature to argue that the Cherokee tribe was depriving the state unfairly, of their wealth. This statement made by the Georgia legislature should not have been valid since they did not have claims to the Cherokees’ land until June of 1830, and the gold rush occurred in 1829. Georgia, nonetheless, gave no concern to that mistake, and eventually in 1830, the governor of Georgia, announced that he forbade Indians or whites from digging up gold in the Cherokee area. The governor of Georgia had no right to stop the Indians from excavating gold in their own land. Chief John Ross challenged the statement of Georgia’s governor, and went to Washington DC to beg for the Cherokee case.
Many of the goods placed in the pyramids at the time of the king’s death, meant to be gifts in the afterlife, worth lots of money, have been stolen by tomb robbers. The pyramids, such as the Great Pyramid, known as Khufu, were built because the ancient
