Roylott’s passing, though the detective felt no remorse concerning this fact. Dr. Roylott was a despicable man, whose numerous crimes created an abhorrence between him and Sherlock Holmes. While the detective did despise Dr. Roylott, the death was still an accident, as Sherlock Holmes could not predict the snake would end up biting its master, only to have its venom kill him just seconds later. Finally, it was Dr. Roylott’s own choice to continue to send the snake through the ventilator, even when he was aware he was suspected of the murder. In the end, Dr. Roylott eventually met the unfortunate fate he rightfully deserved; the hero Sherlock Holmes could not possibly feel any guilt towards this
Unfortunately we do not like in a Marvel Comic/DC world or city like Gotham, comic New York, hell even Chicago where there is super mutants, super heroes or even just normal human heroes to come and drive out the evil in the world. There is not the dare devil of hell’s kitchen to track down and round house kick a real life Wilson Fisk, there is Batman to drag a corrupt CEO into a jail cell or punisher to take out the evil politicians who are fine with people dying on their watches. We don’t have the hero’s to do our dirty work for us, we are the average joe’s in a realistic universe that have to in a sense be our own hero’s to fend off the corruption that is holding our chains together. The most heroic thing that we have to create the change needed is the black experience, black history and people of color’s experiences in the world; they are as Mosley states, “black history is a torch that can lead us out from the darkness. In order to find the way we have to work together and follow one another’s strength… Black history can’t address every issue but it can certainly talk about refusing to go another step without an accounting.
While Jason has forsaken his old life and turned to a life of crime, he does not fit the definition of insanity. Insanity is a mental illness where “a person cannot distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior. Insanity is distinguished from low intelligence or mental deficiency due to age or injury” (Legal Dictionary). Jason is capable of distinguishing fantasy from reality, while remaining highly intelligent and calculating in his fights against Batman and opposing crime-lord, Black Mask. While he may exhibit some symptoms of insanity, he is far from incapable While Jason is originally portrayed as being a merciless crime-lord, he does still have moral values.
Racial profiling is a serious problem as we have witnessed in the last few years in cases such as Oscars, Trayvon Martin and Sandra Bland. An even more serious issue is the ability of our law enforcement to get away with such heinous crimes. Oscar was guilty of committing a crime by fighting, yes, but the officer did not know who the suspect was and assumed Oscar was involved. Once he made the assumption of Oscar’s involvement, he then proceeded to speak toward Oscar with uneasiness and prejudice. From what the film shows, there were no witnesses so the officers had no basis of arresting Oscar and his friends.
This causes many issues within the system due to the lack of evaluation during cases’, and hardly any representations of illnesses. These cases can be altered due to the public opinions during publicized cases which can pursue the judges and create a new outcome of a case. While the insanity plea proves that some criminals are mentally unstable, it should be used with caution because many convicted criminals abuse it during court cases’, imitate being mentally ill during an examination, and are able to avoid the death
Although Stone’s body was greatly decomposed and there were no physical signs to imply that the cause of death was stabbing, shooting, hitting on the head or strangulation, there was evidence that a criminal agency on the part of Towler existed. Naturally, Stone being a suspected police informant, he was a risk to Towler and other drug dealers. From the moment that Stone betrayed Towler to the detectives, his life was in danger. He has also expressed to his fellow workers at the club that incase he disappeared, they should immediately notify the police. The case that faced Christopher was directly related to Stone since he was the one who set him up.
To continue, the other Wes Moore 's life was packed with drama. The drug and crime-induced life that he lived was thrilling, yet not in the way most teens want to relive. His life gave insight into the consequences of drugs and serious premarital relationships. His life was more interesting to read about in my own opinion yet it the other Wes Moore is far from any role model figure of mine. I did enjoy the other Wes ' blunt way of speech like in the quote, “Your father wasn’t there because he couldn’t be, my father wasn’t there because he chose not to be.

On the other hand, Vasquez Is the main character he has a kindness and flattering aroma around him which also makes him the protagonist.
Ultimately, the behaviours executed by the group of policemen is suggested to be replicable, as some aspects of the consequences of the behaviours of the policemen and the results of both Zimbardo’s and Milgram's experiments paralleled. The Stanford prison experiment conducted by Philip Zimbardo yielded similarly chilling results: a nucleus of increasingly enthusiastic killers who volunteered for the firing squads and "Jew hunts"; a larger group of policemen who performed as shooters and ghetto clearers when assigned but who did not seek opportunities to kill (and in some cases refrained from killing, contrary to standing orders, when no one was monitoring their actions); and a small group (less than 20 percent) of refusers and evaders. (Browning 168) Likewise, just like some of the subjects from Stanley Milgram’s experiment on the topic of obedience to authority, the policemen “mitigated their behaviour when they could do so without personal risk but were unable to refuse participation in the battalion's killing operations openly” (Browning 176).

Slamming any pre-existing admirable outlook readers may have had, Anderson inquires, based on his observations, “the authorities, particularly the police, paid scant attention and sometimes abused the victims themselves” (Anderson, 27). Philadelphia is notorious for its high crime rate, marking the police as almost a necessity to the function of everyday life. However, due to the mistreatment of citizens, people began to refer to the police as “ineffective” and “unworthy of trust.” The safeness of an area is key to the number of individuals using that public space, ultimately deeming the police a negative factor.
In season one episode six of the Serial podcast titled “The Case Against Adnan Syed”, there are many inconsistencies and false memories as the story is unfolding through the interviews made by the police and Koenig. During interviews, the majority of the answers received from witnesses did not add up or make sense. Also, individuals involved with the case claim they either did not recall what transpired or said something completely different from their previous statement. The above statement proves that the human memory is imperfect and cannot be reliable.
He knew how the drug game worked “…the streets would get him that money back, and more”(page 74). Wes without any expectations, but to make money gets himself into trouble, and “getting arrested was starting to feel routine”(page 114). Since Wes has no expectations for him, he doesn’t fulfill his true potential, while the author was pushed to his limits and beyond allowing him to exceed everyone’s

Although many people might say, Lennie did not kill people out of harm, he just cannot help it. If you kill someone and do not mean to, then there is help you need and can get. Back then there was not many other places than jail, and if it was not jail it was getting hung or electric chair. George did the right thing so Lennie would not get tortured and mistreated.
