“He said I declined to go in with Brendan but I wanted to go in with Brendan, the police wouldn 't let me."

Psychologist did nothing to warn Tarasoff and she was killed by Poddar. Tarasoff’ s relatives sued University of California claiming that doctor had to warned Tatiana and had to arrange Poddar’ s confinement. In this case court made an exception and said that doctor and patient had a special relationship. This fact made a case different from the general bystander law. Court said that therapist under applicable professional standards had a duty to protect victim from a danger.
According to the Double Jeopardy clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a person cannot be prosecuted twice for the same crime. The movie of the same name, involves a wife, who is prosecuted at the beginning of the movie for the alleged murder of her husband. At the end of the movie, after it is learned that the husband framed the wife, she ends up killing him. As to whether the double jeopardy clause would apply in this situation, I believe it would. Even if she wasn’t seen killing her husband in the beginning, in the eyes of the law, the evidence showed she did.
After he learns of his wife’s murder and his daughter’s kidnapping Marc turns to his ex-girlfriend a former FBI agent for help. Rachel however isn’t honest about how she gets her information and refuses to tell Marc how her husband died. She neglects to tell him that she was accused of killing him but it was ruled an accident. So when the cops question Marc about Rachel, she says “Tell him I went to DC and if he presses tell him I’m an old friend and leave it at that” (154). Rachel’s willingness to have Marc arrested shows that she is not
There were about 18 pronounced dead at the school shooting, and they did not pick to be hunted. Zaroff murdered a lot of innocent people to, and they did not choose to be hunted either. The students and staff who suffered from this horrific encounter did not want to be hunted nor did they choose too. The hunter can pick and choose whom he/she wants to hunt, yet the hunted does not get to choose whom they are being hunted by. A school shooting relates to "The Most Dangerous Game" because like Zaroff, the shooter picked what school he wanted to take advantage of, and Zaroff chose to take advantage of the ship-wreak
I couldn’t believe they were going to charge him with murder just because of one eyewitness. I was disappointed that law enforcement didn’t bother getting a search warrant for his house or even talk to his family. I couldn’t believe Michael Glove beat Brenton just to get him to confess because Michael just wanted to end the case. Also, if law enforcement would have just got the purse and check for fingerprints then everything would have been handled differently. Instead, they thought it was easier to charge him with murder and ruin a fifteen year old life.
After Bob Ewell, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson, attacks the children and dies in the attempt, Atticus refuses to cover it up because he, “‘Don’t want him growing up with a whisper about him, I don’t want anybody saying, [...] Sooner we get this over with the better’” (Lee 366). Atticus would not let the local sheriff say that Jem did not kill Bob Ewell because he thought that Jem did at the time, and wants his kids to know that they should be treated like the rest of the community. Before that, when Atticus was defending Tom Robinson, he was telling the jury that the opposition had lied because they were, “‘confident that you gentlemen would go along with them on the assumption—the evil assumption—that all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women’” (Lee 273). Even though Scout and Jem were not supposed to be there, they learn how racism could kill an innocent man, and through that learn why Atticus had constantly reminded them of why equality is so important. With them learning about equality, they also learn about the town’s racism and how it should not be included in their definition of a person, another mini-lesson taught by Atticus to instruct his kids about
He was admittedly abusive to women. Later, he reflects about his relationship, in particular, his twenty-fourth birthday when she shot at him five times but missed on purpose. He said, "She wanted to hurt me as only a child can be hurt by its mother,” (84). Fuckhead understood the mutually-destructive nature of his relationship with Michelle and never sought to alter or end the relationship. Fuckhead never made any changes to the way he treated women regardless of any realizations.
With her saying “Patrick, How are you doing?” (Mary 3) right as soon as she walked in from the store, even though she knows he is on the ground dead. If she was really upset, then in the first place she would have told someone. Instead she was scared and tried acting like she wasn’t a coward. How she uses her scarness later in the story, she says “Would you like a drink?” (Mary 4) which she said to the police when they were investigating the crime scene. If you weren't scared or being a coward, then you wouldn’t ask the police who are trying to help you if they want a drink.
Renako would not answer any of our questions and would not provide us her identification. Based on Rita’s statement that Renako wanted to kill herself, we decided to place her on a 72 hour psychological hold. Officer Cass and I took hold of Renako 's wrist and she began yelling, "This is my car!" and became irrational. Renako attempted to break free from our grip as she was being handcuffed.
In addition, Milke talked to both family and friends that she did not want to be a mother and asked other family members to take him. After studying the case, one cannot find anything in Milke’s testimony that she is not guilty. Everything points to her being involved in the murder on some level. The biggest question that needs to be answered by the court
Lois Lowry gets most of the ideas for the giver from her life. When her sister died she wondered if it would be better if people couldn’t love at all because then we would not feel pain after the love ends. This is how Lowry got the idea that the people in the community cannot love. When Lowry saw the news report about the mass murder she didn’t really care because it wasn’t anywhere near her. In the giver when people are released the person that releases them doesn’t feel any remorse for what they have done.
