The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not. Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.
Syed repeats his innocence by saying, “I had no reason to kill her” (Koenig Episode 1). Murder is the result of a violent drive or hatred from an individual. Adnan did not have this drive. Although many theories have led to the conviction of Adnan Syed, the insufficient evidence supporting his guilt lacked reason, consistency, and reliability leaving the possibility behind of a third person being involved, a serial killer. One of the hardest things to fathom is what drove Adnan to strangle Hae.
I don’t think it’s right to euthanize people with mental disabilities because they’re still people and they still have hope for a better future and their life is still important even if it doesn’t seem like it. I do agree with George killing Lennie because Lennie would die a really harsh, painful, and slow death by the other men that were trying to find him if George didn’t calm him down and shoot him. Of course, it was the biggest plot twist in the whole book and it broke our hearts, but George did if for the best. In conclusion, George did the right thing and actually helped Lennie instead of harming him and others around
Nonetheless, the other murderer, Perry Smith, had no motive for killing the Clutter family after realizing there was no fortune. That is what makes Perry Smith a psychopath. The life Perry was forced to live in caused him to commit the murders. It was fate that made Perry Smith a murderer. Perry killed because of the way he was raised to be, or not raised to be.
But, I believe that Mr. Smith would fall into the typology of a thrill serial killer. A thrill serial killer could in other words be called a ”sexual sadist”. This type of offenders motivation is about sex and torture. This offender wants his victims to be alive when he tortures them, because he will lose interest in the victims if they are dead. Mr. Smith tortured his victims while they were alive, which means he wanted to see them suffer and after his victims died he didn 't show interest in them, just as the thrill serial
When Lewis was known to carry money on him. Wilkinson didn’t like Lewis because Jefferson was picking Lewis over him and Jefferson was known for killing people. Wilkinson planned the murder. He faked a note and had Neely sign it, told Mrs. Grinder the plan and told her what to say if she was questioned. Wilkinson had Mr. Grinder take the money so there was no evidence left behind.
But I do not think Rainsford will get away with no punishment because either way he murdered a human being. For Rainsford, killing Zaroff could have been just to win “The Most Dangerous Game” or for survival because General Zaroff would have definitely killed Rainsford if he saw him again. Was Rainsford’s murder justified?
Lennie with his simple mind, always gets into trouble. This time, Lennie gets himself in a bind once again, that George can’t save him from. George decision to kill Lennie in the story, was due to his responsibility, sympathy, and love for Lennie. George’s decision to kill Lennie was out of sympathy for him. In the book, George and Slim said to each other, “Couldn’ we maybe bring him in an’ they’ll lock him up?
The heroes in the “Odyssey” and “Hamlet” both practice deception to attain revenge against those who have wronged them. However, the way in which they go about these deceptions is very different between the two. It must also be noted that although revenge is clearly an overwhelming influence in the two stories it is not viewed in a truly positive light in either. In Hamlet the young prince uses deception as a means to bring about his revenge for his father’s murder. The image of madness which he intends to project would likely have protected him if he had ever gone through with his plans of revenge and killed his uncle.
Nearly everything Oedipus says reveals his lack of knowledge. Oedipus says, “Whoever murdered him may also wish to punish me” (139-140). In this one phrase, Oedipus shows the audience that he does not know who killed the king, for he would not come to punish himself. He says he will search out the answers “as if for my own father” (329), when ironically that is precisely what he is doing. When talking about the fate of the searched-for murderer, Oedipus says it will not be cruel.
He doesn’t seem trustworthy to me. Why would someone tell another person that they are going to kill someone and they are barely friends with that person? That doesn 't make any sense, so then why would Adnan ask Jay for help? Jay said it himself that him and Adnan weren 't close, but yet Adnan told him that he was going to kill Hae and he needed his
In conclusion, people in The Crucible lie for their personal interests, their tunnel vision haunts them in the sense that it comes back to get them in the end. This is shown by the fact that john died because he was not willing to live for false sins. In his shoes choosing to die was easy, choosing the harder right between the easier wrong is all depending on how you look at it. The consequences from the wrong choice will make your life harder while sticking to the harder right choice will make your life
Not a choice between his own grisly death and an even worse murder. I’m a murderer, even when I play. Peter would be proud of me.” (65) Ender struggles with his perception of his humanity. By unintentionally killing the Giant, he begins to believe that he is a murderer inside and out. This begins Ender’s paranoia of becoming like Peter.
In the beginning of this excerpt when Synge relates the anecdote of the Connaught man who killed his father, he suggests that this experience relates the “primitive feeling of these people…that a man will not do wrong unless he is under the influence of a passion…[and] they can see no reason why he should be dragged away and killed by the law.” While this seems to be an accurate assumption for the majority of cases, this is a potentially dangerous statement. The premise of this argument rests on the notion that the accused murderer feels remorse and is forever changed by their action. Yet this viewpoint falls apart and would be naive if the person who committed the crime is deranged and knowingly and unreservedly killed the person. If this
However, he fundamentally makes the choice to murder Duncan. Before Macbeth performs this treasonous act, he behaves as though he is extremely unwilling to do so and his brain begins to play tricks on him. “Is this a dagger which I see before me, / The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee,” (Shakespeare 2.I.40-41). Although Macbeth experiences guilt before he kills Duncan, he reaches an entire new level of paranoia and fear after he chooses to complete the plan.
