This can be detrimental in the sense that it gives certain high-ranking officials far too much power. Court cases are settled when a judge exercises their own discretion to punish someone who has broken the law. Because of this, many individuals are given an unfair sentence because judges and prosecutors let their implicit biases get in the way of their decision making. Even though this is not the case with all judges and prosecutors, one mistake by one individual could cause someone to receive a much harsher sentence than they deserve. Prosecutors like Aaron Negangard serve as a prime example of a decision-maker who allows their own personal stereotypes to influence their discretionary actions.
Anderson’s Feed also acts in a way society views as deviant. She is tired of the immense influence that the feed has on people. This mentality leads her to rebel. “What I’m doing...is trying to create a customer profile that’s so screwed, no one can market to it.” (Anderson 98)
Red usually symbolizes love, danger and compassion. Red is the perfect color to use for this line because it suites the scene of the bombing during the war that's going on. Zusak intends readers to visualize the bloodshed that’s happening during this scene, and that bloodshed is what contributes to the compassion of man at times of suffering just like Liesel who experiences compassion at the loss of her
Debt bondage is the act of repaying someone for something with labor that is not defined and a time duration that is not defined. If debt bondage occurs human smuggling will in turn become human trafficking since debt bondage is a part of human trafficking. Human smuggling occurs today in order to get people away from a country who is facing hardship and poverty. Also some may want to be smuggled out of the country it is a unjust society or they are having a war. Furthermore some people seek out a smuggler to get them to the United States due to hearing about the American dream.
The approach of regulation can seem to provide effective means to battle aspects of it. While that may be legitimate, the overarching dilemma is that it reinforces and endorses sexual violence. The consequences of this is an ominous reality for the victims. Strengthening a trade that contravenes human rights is a great slippery slope. Instead of regulation against and prosecuting the person that have been brought in illegally, the attention should be placed on executing the law which prohibits sex trafficking, and prosecute the people to buy sex and the perpetrators.
and she shows she has the power to be resilient and let it go. Taylor gives feminist courage to continue to focus on the image they have of themselves and that is what is most important - don’t let others impact or discourage who you are. A feminist may be challenged by Swift’s beauty or gorgeous gowns as still today many view that feminists are ugly and conservative as referenced by Leonard Pitt’s article: “I am feminist” in the Pittsburg Post. He eludes that many do not realize they are a feminist and may say “I’m not a feminist, but…”
They engage in crime to “let off steam” and to reduce the pressure of the problem they are facing. They may engage in crimes with illicit drugs because they are trying to change the way they feel. Usually when someone prevents you from attaining a goal or takes something of value to you may commit a crime out of revenge. Money seems to be the main cause of strain on people who commit crimes. When people are short on cash they may attempt to get money through illegal channels such as theft, robbery, or prostitution.
She cannot constrain herself to the artificial behavior of those part of it. After being disgraced from the social circle, Lily could’ve easily used the letters to expose Bertha and reclaim her name. However, even though Bertha has antagonizes her throughout the novel, she cannot compel herself to do such a thing and burns the letters in Seldon’s fireplace. Lily’s righteousness also prevents her from finding a suitable husband-- the only way in which she can rise to the upper class. She refuses to participate in a loveless marriage that only acts as a business relation.
Shaming people out of eating much like Nancy Reagan 's ”just say no” campaign, is not effective. The idea of “just say no” was that telling people not to do drugs they will not, similarly telling people not to eat unhealthily will fail to have an effect. Without incentive
The death sentence, a controversial topic that was brought to our attention in this year's election in California through the means of prop 66 and prop 62. Prop 66 was to keep the death penalty, but to revise some of its aspects. While prop 62 was against the death penalty. This issue of sentencing a person for a heinous crime to death is such a critical topic because of the fact of whether to save the lives of criminals or take them away. I do not believe that the father of Hester Prynne’s child should be put to death with the crime that he has committed because the crime that he committed is not a crime that should be punishable by death.
The reason people wanted the death penalty to be deemed unconstitutional was because the way it was being carried out. Under the eighth amendment, it forbids cruel and unusual punishment. The way the death penalty was acting against the eighth amendment was that the death penalty at the time did not have the guidelines that the death penalty has today. The death penalty was being used in an excessive manner. In the Furman v. Georgia case of 1972, Justices were not happy with the death penalty and wanted it abolished in the United States of America.
The results of the trial in Stamford was that Mercy Disborough was temporarily convicted of witchcraft while Goody Clawson was acquitted. The consequences for Mercy Disborough were that despite months and jail and continued peer accusation, she was acquitted. The consequences for the townspeople are blurrier, but it is evident that persistent hysteria was not one of them. The results of the trial in Stamford were largely reigned in from the massive hysteria and mass convictions associated with contemporary witch trials by the law.
