Hamlet said sorry for killing Polonius by “accident” but, he doesn’t seem to be sorry at all, he just dragged Polonius across the floor behind him (III.iv.207-20). He didn’t even bother to save Polonius when he stabbed him; he just let him die. When King Claudius find out, he didn’t even want to punish Hamlet for killing Polonius because he loves Hamlet’s mother and Hamlet is loved b y the people, punishing him will rise a rebellion against him. Despite the crime that was created by Hamlet, a prince with high social class, he didn’t received any punishment, it was covered up. Polonius didn’t receive any justice for his death.
Capote described Richard Hickock as a bloodthirsty, violent person yet he did not actually kill any of the Clutters.

This quote manipulates the reader to believe Richard remains the cruel person in the duo. Then, Capote described Perry Smith as an innocent boy who had an unpleasant childhood. Capote states,
In literary works, authors often use minor characters to accentuate certain characteristics of a main character, often traits that are going to be important down the road. Justine, the family servant, is accused of murdering Victor’s young brother, William. Even though she pleads guilty to this crime, her and Victor know she’s innocent. However, Victor knows that his creation is responsible for the murder but doesn’t say anything, letting Justine take the fall for it. When people only think of themselves, others often innocently suffer for those actions.
The justice looks like the major issue of the plot, as Abner’s actions are explained by himself and his family as a response to an insult. But it is clear the man’s logic is twisted; Abner Snopes provoked all incidents by himself to create a reason to excuse his desire for fires. The final scenes of the story suggest the justice was served, as the man was caught during his final crime. But this is also a complex situation, as other family members, who did not support Abner’s position directly, did not experience the improvement in their living conditions and even could be hurt or killed. The story starts with the description of a trial, where Abner Snopes was accused in burning of his neighbor’s barn.

I think it was his eye! Yes, it was this He had the eye of a vulture.” (page 381, Poe) The man had thought to kill the man because of the look of his eye, though he said he loved the old man because he had never wronged him. For a prosecutor that wants to put him in an institute, they could argue that he was sick and had a disease that sharpened his sense to destroy. For instance, while he was planning to kill the old man he had felt an awful drumming, a hellish tattoo. A further example can be, when the officers had come in he had become anxious, nervous and all these mad thoughts filled his head.
