Solnit uses the heart-wrenching example of how “Corporal Maria Lauterbach was apparently killed by her higher-ranking colleague after she was going to testify that he had raped her” (6). This woman was sexually intimidated by her higher ranking officer and was eventually murdered to cover up what he had done. Solnit uses the horrific example of rape to emotionally grab the reader's attention, bringing them deeper into her essay. This is one of the most effective examples that Solnit uses in her essay to prove women deserve the right to be treated as human beings and that these serious problems need to be
Officer Reggie put her life on the line by using faulty protective gloves when trying to save a blood soaked Matthew which in turn made her susceptible to the unknown HIV virus Matthew had in his blood. Not only did the threat of obtaining HIV scare Officer Reggie, it also scared and impacted her family. The impact that Officer Reggie could have potentially had the virus greatly scared Officer Reggie’s mother, Marge Murray. The threat that Marge Murray’s daughter could have a life endangering disease all because the daughter tried saving a man who was beaten to near death by two twisted men is shown in the quote by Murray; “I just hope she doesn’t go before me. I just couldn’t handle that” (The Laramie Project 53).
O’Connor’s trait of violence is used throughout to reveal the corrupt and criminal world that emanates the need for salvation. The violence that we do not get to see for ourselves are the crimes the Misfit committed before the story began. The story begins with the grandmother telling Bailey to “read here what it says he did to these people’” (O’Connor 575). These crimes are violent murders that the Misfit committed beforehand. This displays the criminal world that we live in.
A few moments after Blanche’s confrontation with Allen she hears a gunshot and runs to see what the disturbance was all about and devastatingly enough, it was Allen who stuck a revolver in his mouth and fired, blowing the back of his head off.

Though Barbara’s shooting was reserved for psychologically traumatizing Jim in The Killing Joke, here it is revisited and refocused to address the traumatic experience that Barbara had. When the Joker’s henchmen attempt to re-enact the shooting of Barbara in Death of the Family, she is shown in a flashback to her original shooting in The Killing Joke, where she writhes on the floor. In a comparison between the original scene of her shooting and the revised version of it in Death of the Family (see Figure 2), the revised version shows only Barbara with a dark backdrop in order to graphically focus the scene is on Barbara herself. Through Sampere’s depiction of the pain and struggle that Barbara felt at the time of her shooting accompanied by Barbara’s non-diagetic narration of the event, the reader is able to understand what was at stake during Barbara’s shooting. In The System of Comics, Thierry Groensteen uses the term arthrology to describe how the graphic elements of comics relate to each other through predicated visual motifs that can exist from a panel-to-panel linear reading or further (Groensteen 22).
The political cartoon “Blood, Sweat, Tears” by Steve Breen focuses on the controversial topic of gun control in America. In order to emphasize the seriousness of taking action, Breen uses an emotional approach. He appeals to pathos to explain how these deaths have emotionally affected Americans throughout the country, and inform of how much effort the executive branch is putting in to limit the access of guns to the mentally ill. Breen utilizes a simplistic approach towards the details to gently remind his audience of the emotional impact that the gun shootings of the past few year have had on Americans. The image on the top shows a victim of such a shooting lying near a stream of his own blood; the person seems to be a young boy, symbolizing
These deadly law enforcement incidents must come to an end. By reading this you will be informed that etiquette police training and use of body cameras will majorly improve law enforcement incidents. But first we must get to know one of the many victims of police brutality Jessica Hernandez. Jessica Hernandez was a 17 year old hispanic teenager who was fatally shot by Denver police officers Daniel Greene and Gabriel Jordan. She was shot four times and two of those bullets went through the left side of her chest causing her death ( Gurman, 2015 ).
d.) I do not think this book glorifies Eric and Dylan. It may seem that it is by detailing all the work they put into it, but the author does that to portray how dedicated they were to doing something so awful. The author does a great job of portraying the awfulness and brutality of the shootings. All the chapters following the shootings really show how it drastically affected the students of Columbine and so many others. These chapters will hopefully cause anyone who is contemplating this idea of mass murder to think twice about it.
We feel as though by putting a name to a crime we then have the knowledge and therefore closure. But tell me this, what good is this when you know within your mind that your resources and tactics to solve the case were driven by despair. Another case in particular is the framing of Larry Peterson. In 1989 there was a murder and sexual assault of a New Jersey woman. It was said by multiple people that Larry Peterson had fresh fingernail scratch marks on his arms and by assumption, was definitely the culprit behind the murder.
Uwen Akpan chooses Monique as a narrator to show the loss of innocence caused by the traumatic effects of war. By telling a story through a child’s lens, Akpan allows his readers to experience the cruelty a child faces because of the wrongdoings of adults. Throughout the story, a nine-year-old Monique suffered assault, rape, and witnessed the murder of her mother by her father. To show the effects of violence from a different viewpoint, Akpan gives an insight on victim’s conflicted thoughts and emotional trauma. Monique’s innocence is completely shattered when she witnesses her father killing her mother.
The court date was set, and Diane had to appear as the victim of the crime. She was represented by the District Attorney in Wilkes County and the defendants attorney cross examined her when it was his turn. In his questioning of her about the events of the day she was attacked, he ask questions about what she was wearing and implied that she had in some way provoked Mr. Miller to flirt with her, leaving him angry and full of rage. Mr. Miller was released on an insanity plea and placed on probation. The trauma of the crime and the insinuation that she had asked for the attack, deeply discouraged Diane leaving her with a sense of disappointment in the Justice System and a drive to pursue her education in criminal justice hoping to make a difference.
According to the testimonies heard at trial, “the constant fear of death and the trauma of several devastating incidents took a heavy toll on morale” (Mosher, 2006, p. A13). The testimonies also revealed that the soldiers had been consuming alcohol prior to committing the crime. Furthermore, it was determined that Steven Green was the “ringleader” in the attack and that he was the one who had allegedly shot and killed the girl and her family. After the incident had occurred, Green was discharged from the Army because he was found to have a personality disorder. In addition, a trial witness who met Green in Iraq claimed that he had expressed “lack of concern or caring for Iraqi life versus American soldiers’ life” (Mosher, 2006, p. A13).
