In “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck, George made the right decision in shooting Lennie because Lennie did not know his own strength. Another reason is If George did not kill Lennie others would have killed him. However, the other side might argue that Lennie did not mean to kill Curley’s wife, thus he deserves to live. George should have killed Lennie because Lennie did not know his own strength, that is the reason why he killed many things by accident and caused many problems. “Why do you got to get killed?
The Captain charged Ramírez of “treason” and “sedition” (129). If Ramírez was indeed an outsider like he claimed, he would not have used the words “treason” or “sedition,” as he could not have betrayed someone that did not confide in him on the first place. Others, may say that this indeed would be words used by a victim, would certainly betray their oppressors and revolt against them. Yet, if Ramírez was indeed an outsider, he would not be betraying them, he would only be acting as it is expected from a
Round’s case, he did not exhibit any signs that would point to the immediate usage of drugs. Officer Towns could go as far as verifying that what was in the plastic bag was indeed gift cards, but the actions that he took from then on are unconstitutional. The illegality of the gift cards were not immediate apparent that Officer Towns had to scan the gift cards in his patrol car, but he admitted that even that scan proved useless in understanding the illegality of the gift cards. Furthermore, he had to bring the gift cards back to his precinct’s cyber-forensics department to determine whether or not the gift cards were illegal. In another landmark case Arizona v. Hicks, the warrantless search of the stereo was unconstitutional because it was not immediately apparent that the stereo was stolen without the procedure following it.
Because Wes had no boundaries for what he could do this led him down a criminal path of dealing drugs. 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
In lying, Baba contradicted his beliefs; as he had told Amir “There is only one sin….. that is theft” (Hosseini 18). Baba, a thief himself, thought that his lies were going to help only him, and that they were not going to influence anybody’s relationship. He was wrong. Baba’s lies are considered a theft because they robbed Amir and Hassan of a special connection they would have shared as brothers. His “theft” caused many more problems than he might have anticipated; his lies split both
He had stolen files that were not his, and most of all, he did it without the owner’s consent. Even though he was unaware of his actions being considered as stealing, what he did was still morally wrong. On the other side, the supporters of Aaron used the utilitarian theory. They did not care much as to what they were violating or what can be or will be violated, because they believe that their purpose and output is justifiable. In my opinion, I believe that the best ethical theory to be applied in this kind of situation is the social contract theory, simply because it stops conflict.
This is something that is almost comical and seems like a comedy routine on a television show or like the totally incompetent cops in the Police Academy Movies. A man driving a car with red and blue emergency lights stopped a car in North Kingsville, Ohio for a traffic violation. The joke was on him because he stopped a real law officer. The law officer quickly realized that he was a fake and drove away. He later contacted the North Kingsville, Ohio police department about the fake cop.
Both Ty and Gemma are credible, although may not seem as credible as Gemma. Although Ty is smart, he can’t seem to understand that kidnapping Gemma was the wrong thing to do. He does let her go and he knows not to hurt. This is proven when he says, “Look, I thought you understood this now…. I’m not going to do anything to you, not like that...I promise I won’t hurt you.” But even though his knows hurting her is wrong, he doesn’t comprehend the fact that abducting Gemma was unethical.
Since Robbie is part of the lower-class, it makes sense for inspectors to think that he would commit a crime because of the belief that lower-class make bad decisions. In contrast, Paul Marshall was one of the men who went searching for the twins, but he had not crossed anybody’s mind that he could have been the culprit. Paul Marshall is a wealthy businessman who was well-respected by the Tallis family. If he was accused of rape, no one would believe it because of the belief that those who are in the upper-class are successful because they make
In this way, he had lied selfishly. His lies benefitted only himself, allowing him to move on with his life believing he had done a good deed, when in fact he had caused the family the pain of wishing for something that never came. That day, he became a thief, not of property or jewels, but something more valuable: the truth. The truth is entitled to all who hear it, and when one is dishonest, one takes away that right (2). Critics argue that while lies can be told selfishly, the truth can also do the same.
