Now, Proctor realizes that by confessing, there will be blame set on other innocent people so by ripping the confession paper, it will not make the court look better. Proctor also realizes that confessing would affect many other people in Salem and would not put a legacy in his
But this is also incorrect because it doesn’t matter how good of a worker he is, if he keeps getting them kicked out of wherever they are. Finally, the opposing side could argue that Aunt Clara told George to take care of Lennie not kill him. This claim is false because Aunt Clara also would not want Lennie to keep on killing people and putting George through a lot of
If the man would have just placed the fire in a more open spot and not under a canopy of trees this wouldn 't have happened. Instead, the man thinking instinctively and not out of the box, places it under the trees where the branches are easily located so he doesn’t have to travel far in the cold. Because of this very action, he might have practically taken his own life. He tried to light another fire in a different location, but it was too late. The cold had taken him over and his hands were too numb to be able to light the match to start the fire.
Furthermore George was going to be ostracized and potentially punished if he did not aid in the capture of Lennie or shoot him. Right before the boys went out hunting they told George to “stick with [them] so [they wouldn’t] think [he] had anything to do with [killing Curley’s wife]” (98). George had to shoot Lennie in order to protect others from lennie 's misjudgements and to save himself from
LT Murphy had a hard decision to make, to either kill these herders to not expose his team or to follow the Geneva Convention and let them go even when they would undoubtedly alert the enemy. “The potential force against us was too great. To let these guys go on their way was military suicide.” (Luttrell 2007, 202) The obvious military decision would have been to kill them and preserve the concealment of his team on the mountain, however LT Murphy decided to let them go due to the fact that the goats would not leave if they killed them also the fact that the insurgents could use the bodies for exploitation purposes. Knowing that letting them go could result in danger to
You get hit by a stupid driver that didn’t see you. Would you want that to happen to you or to any of your loved ones? No, you would not, so I would be obviously common sense to make it illegal. Next time, don’t look on your phone while walking. There should be a law against distracted walking because too many pedestrian are dying.
After this exchange, Danforth began a trial to hold Cory accountable for his response, or lack thereof. Giles knew his reputation would be shattered if he gave up one or more of his friends for his own safety. Cory’s dignity and pride also would not allow him to respond yes or no to an accusation saying he practiced witchcraft. Giles decided not to give the court any satisfaction for his arrest by giving in to the accusations or denying them and hanging for it. Either way he could have answered would have killed him, morally or physically, so he didn’t answer.
Just the possibility that victims could have been killed in the various fires Abner set, make it enough reason for him to be a public menace. Although I believe my father would never put me in a position like Sarty’s, our morality is something that once it’s taken can never be returned. After someone commits the crime of falsely testifying or lying under oath, their morality becomes diminishes until they have none left. After the first instance, an individual who would falsely testify might feel bad over contributing to the needless suffering of individuals, but they tell their selves that nothing is wrong and that they are only protecting someone else at the price of others. It is this vicious cycle that strips a person of their morality, so if I were ever in a situation where my morality or protecting someone else were the question; my morality would come
Lord Capulet stopped Tybalt from attacking Romeo at the party but didn't follow up. At the party lord Capulet could have told Tybalt that he shouldn't start anything and ruin his party or he will get in trouble. Instead, he said don't do anything at the party but he fought later which then cause both himself and Mercutio to duel and then both of them ended up dead. All of this could have been avoided if the feud was never created because Romeo would have showed up and Tybalt wouldn't have gotten mad. Then in the end, Mercutio and Tybalt would still be alive.
They resolved to leave means neither of ingress or egress to the sudden impulses of despair or of frenzy from within” (57). It’s ironic how the castle is well built to block anyone or anything from entering, even the lower class people who may have the plague. Even with these precautions, someone with the plague is still able to get inside. The prince fears the plague, which makes him isolate himself from everything without thinking about the downsides of being isolated. The fear of the prince has actually caused more deaths since he could've helped save people instead of being selfish for himself and for certain people.
