Crusaders did many inappropriate things that lost people’s interest like being sidetracked and doing unnecessary things. Even with this reputation, it’s not the only thing they did wrong. A different reason why the Crusades were negative is because they would kill the innocent. In Document 7, it states, “-the crusading knights were often abused and co,,ottoes atrocities against Eastern Orthodox Christians, Jews and Muslims in the areas through which they passed.” This “-made them hated by all groups throughout the region.
Louis exhibited another core attitude of the period’s people, the common attitude that evil acts must be faced with deserving justice, which often included violent punishments. With Ebles of Roucy, Louis fought to stop his crimes and “the plunderers themselves were plundered and the torturers tortured with the same or even more pain then they had used to torture others,” bringing swift justice to the band of criminals (Suger 35). William of Normandy and his supporters met their fate when Louis sent a host of knights to deal his just punishment,

The first death penalty laws were established in the eighteenth century making it so you could only be hanged for murder. The first recorded death penalty that took place was in 1608, it was Captain George Kendall. This execution took place in the new colonies, he was put to death because he was suspected of spying for Spain he was executed by a firing squad. Capital Punishment has not been proven to deter crime and opens the possibility of executing innocent people; finally, the Death Penalty/Capital Punishment can cause 2nd hand trauma to the victim and their family. Capital Punishment violates the 8th amendment, it is labeled as cruel and unusual punishment.
Revenge can be defined as an action done to harm others for something bad they did. Revenge is a feeling that not only affects the people who hate each other, but also those who aren’t directly involved. In the play “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet”, written by William Shakespeare, the topic of revenge and family rivalry is mentioned throughout the entire story. The play portrays different aspects of revenge through the use of two characters, which in this case are Romeo and Tybalt. As we know, revenge is a feeling that can lead a person to commit acts that they wouldn’t typically do if they were conscious of their actions.
Since humans are born savages everyone has an evil lying within, therefore when something happens that triggers that evil the human will resort to their natural sense of savagery because that is their nature and because civilization is just a concept that keeps us from showing our true selves. From the moment a human is born, they are told how to talk, how to walk and how to act. The society humans live in constrict a human’s natural sense of savagery; however strip that away and put a human in a situation where the rules of civilization are absent then there will be nothing but pure chaos. In Lord of the Flies, the kids try very hard to stay civilized, however, it proved to be too difficult as their inner evil started to take over. The island was slowly becoming more and more chaotic because the rules of civilization didn’t exist on this island, therefore, it was all about “survival of the fittest”.
Revenge can be a horrible emotion; it can sometimes lead people to do horrible things. By definition, Revenge means to get retribution for a wrongdoing done to you. In my opinion, revenge is mostly caused by fear and the overwhelming feeling of payback Throughout history, revenge, or vengeance, has been altered by several cultures and religions, and even the American culture. Though it often leads one to perform criminal acts, Howard argues that it is a necessary component in the functioning of society. He points out that revenge is a threat that acts as a disincentive to undeserved violence.
As Jane Goldman once said, “Vengeance is the act of turning anger in on yourself. On the surface it may be directed at someone else, but it is a surefire recipe for arresting emotional recovery.” (www.brainyquote.com). Vengeance is seen as a way to relieve one’s resentment for a person. This relates directly to Medea since she consumed by her vengeance for her husband Jason.
We should instead be punishing the commanders and others who abducted them and terrorized these children. This is such and urgent topic that I urge you to think about the commanders who put these children up to such terrible crimes. They may be the actual perpetrators instead of the children because they are the ones who have taken children, stripped them, and turned them into war
I don’t care how long I wait, if I can only do it, at last. I hope he will not die before I do!” (P.61) this shows the revenge towards hindley stared from childhood to adult. Hindley also take revenge towards Heathcliff Hindley’s attempt to kill Heathcliff only hurts himself in the process; it proves the point Isabella makes, “Treachery and violence are spears pointed at both ends; they wound those who resort to them worse than their enemies” (P. 177). The fact that Hindley is mistreated as a child reflects the built up anger and resentment inside him and towards others.
Everyone knows what they are doing, they are aware they are ending a life, and living a life of violence, but something brought them into the gang and they focus their attention on that one thing to execute the tasks given to them. Towards the end of the video, the girl’s killer says this about the gang he wasted his life defending, “We fight to protect territory that isn’t ours to begin with. We cover ourselves with guns to show we are tough, but inside we are weak.” Like all of those guys in jail, like the girl who became a rat, and Chester who agreed to be a part of the video, they get to a point where all the killing, violence and drugs take a toll on them and they want out. To most of them there is no “out,” because they know the task of getting out is extremely dangerous and there is a slim to none chance of completing it alive.
This rule proved to be highly immoral, because it basically led one achieving and performing their revenge on another. Sentencing an individual to death for a crime they had committed, whether it be murder, rape, or another heinous crime, is using Hammurabi’s code. Individuals on death row were put there because members of the court believed that they had committed a crime worthy of death. By sentencing them to death, the court is committing a murder as well, even if it is of a guilty individual. Murdering or sentencing one to death row is not just, even if the individual is guilty of treason.
Revenge. I, like most people, would want revenge on that awful human being. It’s human nature wanting to get even, but is continuing the trail of dead bodies really revenge? Put yourself in the position of the murder and compare these two scenarios for a second. Rot in prison for 40 years or have one second of being lethally injected.
The retribution part is to punish the person for the crime that they permitted against society, and the incapacitation part is to remove that person out of society so they do no further harm. Deterrence means the prevention of future crime, and the rehabilitation teaches life skills and in the betterment. However, author Sandiford says that instead of solving crime, mass incarceration has infected our communities and striking them with devastating symptoms, and prison costs have skyrocketed, inmates ' families have been torn apart, and the system is overwhelmingly stratified by race and class (Sandiford,
