His death is explained when Elizabeth tells Proctor, “He would not answer ay or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law” (Miller 84). Because he didn’t side with society, the court eventually had Giles killed for his belief. A few years ago, an event similar to this occurred down at a college in Oregon. A shooter came to the campus and would ask the people if they believed in God.
Some people may say that if guns were banned, criminals would not be able to get hold of them, and most crimes would disappear. This sounds like the perfect solution; however, it is not true. Criminals will always find a way to obtain guns, leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless. Since 1976, it has been illegal to own a handgun or to keep any gun from your home unlocked and fully assembled in Washington, D. C.; however, it is the “murder capital of the world” (Kopel). As you can see, banning guns does not eliminate
Wesby was a very interesting case, that was just recently decided. I agree with the judges that for one there was no lawful arrest made and but I strongly disagree that there was not probable cause to make an arrest and lastly, I agree that the officers do have qualified immunity in this case. The officers made an unlawful arrest because they lacked evidence to charge the party goers with unlawful arrest. This is because the party goers did not know they were not supposed to be there at that time. The Court case states that Peaches was the supposed tenant of the house and gave the party goers permission to be there and that is why they were all there.

In Campbell Robertson’s New York Times article, “Charges Filed in Katrina Inquiry”, he talks about the killing of six innocent civilians. According to documents the civilians were walking, unarmed, over a bridge to get food and visit family members, when they were shot at by officers. When Lieutenant Lohman arrived at the scene he concluded that “the shooting was ‘legally unjustified’” and they started the cover up (Robertson). In this situation the police uses their powers to cover-up their wrongdoings so they don’t have to take responsibility for their actions. Robertson’s article also claims that there are other similar situations, for example a man found burned by police to hide evidence.
Tell-Tale Heart is about a man who was crazy and he killed an old man because of his evil eye.Then he shows the police where he hid the old man’s body. I strongly believe that Tell-Tale Heart is not appropriate for middle schoolers because it tells you about killing people and hiding the evidence. Tell-Tale Heart shouldn’t be read in middle school because it teaches us how to murder people.On page 93 its talks about him replacing the floor boards so cleverly from the police but he then confesses that he killed the old man and put him under the floorboards. The Narrator was a madman- well some call him that- and I call him a madman because he watched the old man take naps and watched him
Julilius Caesar was stabbed to death by his close friends or at least he thought they were. Brutus and Mark Anthony gave speechs at his funeral. Brutus we all know was the one who actually killed him but not that only one that stabbed him Brutus started his speech off like he was actually giving a speech like he was running for president or something but Anthonys speech was sincere mark didn 't stabbed his friend but Brutus did so it 's weird how he 's the one that killed him and gave a speech at his funeral. They were scared he would over power then so they killed him. I think it is dumb like why would you kill your friend and then turn around and talk at his funeral?
