The abuse was so bad that when Gacy was molested by a family friend he suffered in silence. Gacy was so scared about what his father would do he chose to keep quiet. John Wayne Gacy was guilty of killing 33 people mostly teenage boys and burying them under his house. He got most of his victims by dressing up as pogo the clown. In conclusion I fully believe that that abuse and bullying have a lot to do with how a person reacts.

In the book, Black Boy, by Richard Wright, Richard had a terrible childhood causing him to have severe physiological effects on his life. While, this idea is showed throughout the book, there are three incidents that show this idea. These incidents were when Richard was severely beaten and then suffered horrible flashbacks, when Richard produces anxiety around his relatives, and when Richard falls into a major depression. The first incident is when Richard is severely beaten by his parents after burning down his own house. This was resonant to Richard, “I found myself lying in bed, screaming, determined to run away, tussling with my mother and father who were trying to keep me still.
The Effects of Shell Shock Soldiers who had bayoneted men in the face had developed twitches of their own face muscles. Stomach pains conquered men who stabbed their enemies in the abdomen. Snipers lost eye sight. Terrifying nightmares of being unable to take out bayonets from the enemies' bodies stayed with them long after the killing. Shell shock is a serious disorder and WW1 cases such as these caused a giant step into the study of psychology.
For society, the struggle between their aspirations to be moral and just and the greater, more abstract moral cost they pay every time they condone a state-sanctioned murder is a never ending battle. No one wishes to be the person who “heard her cries for help but did nothing while an attacker stabbed her to death”, no one wants that on their conscience (Bruck 581). In order to compensate for this occurrence, they try to reconcile themselves by exerting the harshest punishment known upon the perpetrator while distancing themselves from the person. With this first instinct of “an eye for an eye”, capital punishment made its debut with the thought “the advantages, moral or material, outweigh [the cost]” (DMW, VDH 2). In the film, Prejean battles this preconception with the claim that the moral cost society pays far outweighs any benefits it poses.
Through his recovery, Jeff lives his life vicariously through his window until he hears a woman screaming for help, startling him and creating suspicion that his neighbor, Lars Thorwald, has murdered his wife. This leads to a series of events that eventually leads to Thorwald being convicted of his crimes
With guns drawn and threats that they would “blow his head off”, the officers unjustly searched his car and held him at gunpoint. Stevenson explains his immense fear of these supposed upholders of the law, and how their own racial suspicions of him could have easily led to his death. The police maintain the ability to sentence civilians to death in a heartbeat, and unfortunately are guided by racial biases to at times unjustly distribute this punishment. This ability to kill is necessary for police officers to protect the community, yet continues to be grossly misused. While this right to kill is different from a judge and jury’s right to kill, misuse by both parties supports the claim that the death penalty is too powerful to be justly distributed.

The case of Kenneth Parks is explained, since he was a man who murdered his mother-in-law and attempted to murder his father-in-law all while he was sleepwalking. Eagleman begs the question of whether it was Parks fault, and if it was not, then is if all criminals are not faulted for committing a crime when they have a mental disorder. He asks how far the scale can go to forgive a person of their crimes, a main theme of his writing. The topic is interesting, since gunman that fire away at others because of a tumor in their amygdala, for example, may only have done what they did in the heat of the moment. Though the question remains as to why that person did not see a doctor so that the issue could have been corrected, so it could have also been their fault.
Voluntary manslaughter is frequently called a "warmth of energy" wrongdoing. Deliberate homicide happens when a man; is emphatically incited (under circumstances that could comparably incite a sensible individual) and murders in the warmth of energy stimulated by that incitement. For "warmth of energy" to exist, the individual must not have had adequate time to "chill" from the incitement. That the killing isn 't viewed as first or second-degree homicide is an admission to human shortcoming. Executioners who act in the warmth of energy may murder purposefully, yet the passionate setting is a relieving element that lessens their ethical blameworthiness.
