The article “On Punishment and Teen Killers” written by Jennifer Jenkins is an article with very weak ethos. The author argues that teens who commit heinous crimes should receive life without the possibility of parole and that the victims rights should be considered. The author is a victim of a crime committed by a teen, her pregnant sister was brutally murdered by a teen gunman who wanted to “see what it felt like to shoot someone” (2). By bringing her sister into the paper the author lowers her credibility because she is emotionally connected to the case and has an obvious biased opinion. This leads to the readers to question her reliability on an unbiased opinion in the article.
Abigail’s lies have caused many issues, but the lie that not only was she not dancing and conjuring spirits with Tituba and the other girls, but that she was nowhere near the forest where the girls were. Even though she says later to the other girl’s that no one can find out. Although it’s not sure if anyone found out, the reader knows this, and can’t help but think about her involvement in it. Because of this, Abigail should be thought of as a manipulative schemer, and
I find it unreasonable that Henry James kills his heroine because of her naivety, reckless, impulsive, and her lack of experience. Daisy is a young lady as James describes her “Winterbourne looked along the path and saw a beautiful young lady advancing”(James, p3). She probably a teenager so she is doing what any girls at her age would consider normal. At this age young people do not like to be controlled by customs and tradition. They want to experience life without any interference from anyone.
This meant that anyone could be proven innocent by blaming someone else, causing multiple people to be accused. By the end of the play, nineteen innocent people are hanged due to the accusations (Dector 1). The accusations of the witch trials were to be taken seriously, but it was all controlled by young girls who did not know the consequences. Reputation was one of the major causes of the dispersion of hysteria.
She has an aborting and later finds out that she can no longer bear any children with Tom. The transformation of her personality following the aborting and her increasing mental instability shows the fragility of the human mind. Swift shows us that fragility through Mary’s guilt. The beginning of her madness starts when Dick kills Freddie, because Mary told him that Freddie impregnated her. Later when she finally realizes the harm that her manipulating can do Tom says: “Curiosity’s gone…seems three years older than me, as if she’s become a hard featured woman with a past.”
Some people may say Lizzie iwas a wonderful woman. But was she really? For example, researchers make sense when they say Lizzie was to sweet of a woman to do such a thing,but she was actually a little crazy. In fact, she tried to by poison to kill her parents(Allard,2013). This shows that the people who think Lizzie is not crazy are wrong.
Did you know that 80% of, 10-year olds are on diets according to Sana Hassan writer of The Psychological Effects of Child Beauty Pageants. Beauty pageants should be banned because they are exploiting and showcasing little girls for sexual predators, and exposing girls to the keeping a fake image to be liked, loved, or keeping social status. They pose many significant impacts to a child’s mental and even physical health. The story of JonBenet Ramsey is a very tragic story. A story of exposing little girls to sexual predators.
However, some women with a broken human being treat their children horribly that we can never image. Starting with young teenagers who are easily tempted by bad guys and lack of sexual knowledge, these innocent girls become pregnant very early. Because of pregnancy, girls start to feel nervous and extremely stress out if their parents, friends or school find out. So they decide to refuse and even kill that developing offsprings. Older women is even more crucial when they can even think a thousand reasons to abuse them.
Those still aren’t good enough reasons to murder someone, but another reason young people commit such crimes is that of the psychology of their brains. People under the age of 18 aren’t fully developed and don’t think or function as properly as adults do. Their brains don’t think about the logic of situations, just feelings, which is why most juvenile offenders don’t really realize what they are doing or think about the consequences of their actions. In order to understand what is going on in their brains and to get juveniles to change the way they think, they need child rehabilitation, but instead, receive adult rehabilitation. These juvenile offenders are treated like adults because they made adult decisions when instead they should be given attention and support to turn them into better people.
The article stated, “Prefacing his truth-telling, Shapiro warned: ‘This is going to be mildly graphic,’ he said, ‘but it’s important because I’m sick of euphemisms; It’s not aborting a fetus; it’s not getting rid of a ball of tissue,” As Shapiro defined later in the video, abortion is the murder of “literally the most innocent among us.” Many people say that a woman has a right to choose when she has a baby. Or in other words, she has the right to murder the child that is forming inside of her. Why should a woman be able to kill the baby that she is carrying? That unborn child has done nothing wrong to compel somebody to kill it.
The article “Girl’s Suicide Points to Rise in Apps Used by Cyberbullies” by Lizette Alvarez unfolds the cattuses of Rebecca Ann Sedwick’s suicide.

Osibin may have suffered from oppositional defiant disorder because she can easily have lost her temper and had an argument with her mother before deciding to shoot her in the head. Both the social learning theory and the psychodynamic theory emphasized that Alicia Osibin could have been exposed to early childhood aggression that resulted in an oppositional defiant
Would you believe that a 12 year old girl would indirectly cause the deaths of 20 people? Abigail Williams a young girl who lived in salem she has been labeled as the first accuser in the Salem witch trials. Abigail is an pure evil. She has so much hatred to Elizabeth proctor she actually tries to perform witchcraft in attempt to kill her. Even when things spiral out of control and people start being killed she refuses to fess up in attempt to save people.
The script also focuses too much on the idea that Megan might be hallucinating and psychotic. These scenes becomes too dreamlike vs. realistic. It would benefit the script to stay focused on the goal: unraveling who killed Josh and proving her innocence. The scene in which she tries to stop the assassination of the President really isn’t well connected to the goal of Josh’s
Possibly because there are normal functioning kids, and then there are those who have mental illness that provokes them to kill instead of interact with society. The authors i do not agree with are Marjie Lundstorm and Jennifer Jenkins, i do not agree with these authors because they simply keep making the mistake of thinking and calling these criminals “the poor children in prison” and “they’re not adults” these two authors think that the only ones to blame here are is the U.S. and criminal system, but i find it funny that it wasn’t the U.S who killed those people and it wasn’t the criminal system who conjured up the idea. Personally i find these “children” as guilty as any other criminal, their age shouldn’t make a difference on their punishment, when someone asks me the definitions of a child i describe them to be playing with dolls and action figures, pretending to be superheros and the good guys, i don’t describe them as these horrible monsters you see now, and apparently it’s because “We’ve created this image that teenagers are something to be feared” but that is not something i agree
