Therefore, Socrates would rather abide by the Laws than go against the people and escape. In his eyes, the rule of law is always “just” and citizens should always follow it. Every one of Socrates’ friends disagree with him but ultimately, Socrates decides to listen to himself and goes with what he truly believes to be the “right thing to do”. Based off this logic, citizens should follow laws that are also deemed to be “unjust laws” just because it is a law. Socrates believes that if one isn’t living a “just” life, then there is no reason to be living at all, and that one must never do
The principle explains that police should use only the amount of physical force necessary to restore order and protect public if using warning or persuasion is not working on an individual. This is important because it is not ok for anyone to use physical force in not completely necessary. If using physical force is not required, then it should always be avoided. Although, if an officer must use physical force than it should be the least amount necessary to protect the individual and surrounding public. For modern police officers this an important principle, this is not always followed and not following this principle causes many unnecessary tragedies and conflicts.
I cannot imagine seeing that man walking on the streets if I knew he had done something to my child. I would have wanted nothing to do with the man who did it. I would not care if it was a Negro or someone with a different skin colour, but the thing that he has done something to my child is already enough. Mister Ewell showed many aspects that made him in my opinion untrustworthy. He accused Mister Robinson of raping his daughter because he saw him doing something with his daughter, but he did not hear Tom’s side of the story he only wanted to think in his own way.
Tris had kept quiet throughout the ride. Not because he feared retribution from the goons sitting guard over them... he knew enough about the psychology of the bully to know too much deference only made them worse... but because at that moment it suited him to have them think he was in a state of shock and fear. He was far from a coward, but even further from being an idiot, and only an fool of the first water would have attempted any kind of escape when he and Ms Dwight were trussed, and had the barrels of guns pointed at them. His strategy was to watch and wait... professional as these guys might be, he had not encountered one of their type yet that never made mistakes. The trick was to be ready.
Abner Snopes would abuse his son and one particular moment Sarty realize that he did not want to live in fear with his father rules. In this context it is believable that Sarty wants to do the right things from now on,"If I had said they wanted only truth, justice, he would have hit me again." But now he said nothing. He was not crying. He just stood there”(Faulkner, 3).
He believed that the people of earth were not taking heed of God’s word and that they were indulging in the seven deadly sins. Despite the fact that he is a loner who does not have much to his name, he does not seem to fit the profile of someone who is motivated by strain theory. Doe does not have tangible motives, and he has the means to achieve the motives that he does have. This means that he is not committing his crimes due to feeling strained by society, but that he’s doing it because it’s his goal. Comparatively, I believe Doe’s killings would relate more the rational choice theory.
He challenged everything that comes on his way. He said man can be killed but not accept defeat from others. “But man is not made for defeat,” he said. “A man can be destroyed but not defeated.” (Hemingway, 1952, p.29). Santiago was brave enough to accept the unavoidable thing like death or his mind was ready to face any struggle but he was a man who refused to accept defeat.
All that Okonkwo ever accomplished was from fear of becoming his father, which means that he was only thinking of himself and not of others like a hero should. Not only was he selfish but in order to have people think he is strong he was willing to kill a child. Okonkwo is not tragic a hero because of his lack of selflessness and because he
the messenger said. And Oedipus replied ”you have got your wish if you don’t tell the truth” . He is not pushing them to speak, he forces them using the power of his position . In addition to the reason behind Oedipus’s escape is knowing his fate and that he is going to kill his father and marry his mother. So he ran from it, and he did not know that he is running towards it.
This can be shown through the servant as he is threatened and questioned about his past, and Teiresias holding his tongue in spite of the King's cruel remarks. The servant disobeyed the order of the King to kill the newborn child. “ I pitied the baby, my King, And I thought that this man would take him far away” (64). Though the servant was ordered to kill child he could not bring himself to kill the child. The servant risked his life to save a child that had no personal affiliation to himself.
Hernandez made the decision to protect his family by fighting back. He stated “I never wanted to hurt anybody, but they put me in a situation and I had to protect my family” (Sharamm, 2016). There are some cases where individuals usually take matters into their own hands making the situation worst. To speak briefly on this matter when Mr. Zimmerman felt that Martin seemed up to no good the first thing he did was call the police, however at some point he decided to take matters into his own hands to confront the young man. Instead, he should have given the operator a description of what Martin looked like, so that way a patrol unit could have scope the scene.
At this point, he is telling his other children that if they want to act not manly, they can follow their brother Nwoye, that he forbade. He is also affecting his relationship with his clansmen, for example the tone he talks to them, he acts like he does not care for their feelings and that he would kill them if they choose to follow in the steps of
He doesn’t seem trustworthy to me. Why would someone tell another person that they are going to kill someone and they are barely friends with that person? That doesn 't make any sense, so then why would Adnan ask Jay for help? Jay said it himself that him and Adnan weren 't close, but yet Adnan told him that he was going to kill Hae and he needed his
Although the question of whether or not Adnan Syed is innocent or guilty is so complex, the law would state that Adnan is innocent. There were no reasonable doubts about his innocence. The only logical answer seems to that, this is not a case of one man’s innocence rather the bias of someone involved in this case. Adnan’s freedom was forestalled due to this unknown because of one man’s story and one phone call from a phone log. This evidence should not have been the cause of a conviction, and should not be keeping an innocent man lock away behind bars.
Alai also demonstrates, through his refusal, that he doesn’t possess the same compliance with inflicting pain on others despite being Bernard’s best friend. This exhibits the grandness of their humanity for they both sacrifice their own selves to prevent the boy they just met from getting hurt. “ He hadn’t meant to kill the Giant. This was supposed to be a game. Not a choice between his own grisly death and an even worse murder.
