The monster then decides to take the life of Victors companion. He does this for revenge as that is the one thing Victor refuses the monster.

When Victor has nobody left in his life he makes up his mind to kill the monster in an act of violent passion. He sets out to hunt the monster, but gets sick and dies on his journey.
Alas, my son, you died so young—a death before your time. Aaii…aaii…you’re dead …gone---not your own foolishness but mine”. (1406-1414) “Alas, how miserable I feel—to look upon this second horror. What remains for me, what’s fate still got in store? I’ve just held my own son in my arms, and now I see right here in front of me another corpse.
The gallows, then threw the shadow over the boy. The victims’ necks were placed in the nooses. The adults cried “Long Live Liberty!” (Wiesel 61).The three chairs tipped over and there was complete silence in the camp. Wiesel said, “That night the soup tasted of corpses” (62). I revealed that the Jews had a stronger reaction in the second execution.
The corporal uses the rebels as a way to control the children 's emotions and use them for himself. He makes Ishmael’s desire start to transition towards creating destruction. Later, Ishmael and his friend’s enter into the battlefield. During this time, Ishmael kills his first victim and his desire completely turns into killing sprees. “I raised my gun and pulled the trigger, and I killed a man.” “Every time I stopped shooting to change magazines and saw my two young lifeless friends, I angrily pointed my gun into the swamp and killed more people”(Beah, 118).
Some decisions Johnny made that were influenced by the gang members were killing the Soc, wanting to turn himself in, and saving the children in the burning church. A clear sign of the gangs influence on Johnny was when he decided to prevent the Soc’s from drowning Ponyboy and defending himself instead of letting the Socs beat them up and have them possibly drown Ponyboy. More specifically, after finally fighting back and killing Bob, he says to Ponyboy “‘I killed him’ he said slowly. ‘I killed that boy”’(Hinton 56). Here the author is explaining how shocked Johnny was once he killed the Soc.
The three murderers kills Banquo whereas Fleance flees for his life. In the scene, there has been a use of tragic flaw when the three murderers only kill Banquo and accidently letting Fleance run away, and the use of tragic flaw has an affect on the whole plot and ending of the play. To get a better understanding on who the characters are, there has been used dialogue between the three murderers. It gives the reader/viewer an inside on who has hired the three

In the same fashion, Dr. Armstrong is logically lurded to the island of despair because of his blaisé for the dead, his unwillingness to change his ways and his psychotic nature. “(I) was drunk, and I operated... I killed her alright,” (65) the doctor thinks, talking about knowingly and willingly being drunk and operating on a woman, killing her. This plainly proves he is a cold-blooded killer with devastating judgement. Which ties into the placement of Dr. Armstrong’s death in the book.
Another act of savagery is that he raid Ralph’s shelter in the company of a couple of his savages and snatches away Piggy’s spectacles. Subsequently when Piggy insists on getting his spectacles back, Roger kills Piggy with a rock. The deaths of both Simon and Piggy are thus attributable to Jack’s brutality which is due to the great change that has come over Jack during the period of his stay on the island. When Ralph has fled to save his life, Jack orders a thorough search for Ralph. He gets a stick sharpened at both ends, evidently to torture Ralph to death after Ralph has been seized.
Another guy I knew really did threaten to have his personal enemies killed by hired gunmen after the war” (Vonnegut 1). Paul Lazzaro, the new identity given to an actual fellow POW, tells Billy that anyone who tries to touch him should kill him, lest Lazzaro have them killed in return (Vonnegut 175). Billy, after surviving the dreadful events of the novel that far, was just as traumatized by Lazzaro’s story of revenge against a dog. Similarly, he later reminisces about “the poor old high school teacher, Edgar Derby,” who was caught “with a teapot he had taken from the catacombs” before being “tried and shot” (Vonnegut 274). These parallels of Pilgrim and Vonnegut highlight the events of both men 's lives,
By killing Mr. Ewell; Boo Radley killed his innocence. After the attack, Boo gently carried Jem to Atticus so that Dr. Reynolds could take a look at him. At first, Atticus thought that Jem had killed Mr. Ewell, but Mr. Tate insisted that he fell on his knife. As they were arguing, Atticus realised that Boo had killed Mr. Ewell. Atticus and Mr. Tate knew that Boo would be killed if the town found out that he had killed Bob Ewell, and so they agreed that Mr. Ewell fell on his knife.
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.

Entirely innocent people were killed. For example, “If a builder build a house for someone, and does not construct it properly, and the house which he built fall in and kill the son of the owner, then the son of the builder shall be put to death”. The son of the builder had nothing to do with the incident, so it’s the builder that should be put to death. Another example, in the law code was, “If a physician make a large incision with the operating knife, and kill him, or open a tumor with the operating knife, and cut out the eye, his hands shall be cut off. For crimes that could not be proven with hard evidence the Code allowed for a trial by ordeal which was practically where the accused was placed in a potentially deadly situation as a way of determining innocence.
One by one, the Misfit orders his henchmen to take a member of the family into the woods and kill them in cold blood. However, the reader is confounded when the Misfit reveals that he was falsely imprisoned for his father’s death. O’Connor states: “The Misfit sneered slightly. ‘Nobody had nothing I wanted’ he said…’It was the head doctor at the penitentiary said what I had done was kill my daddy but I know that for a lie. My daddy died.. of the epidemic flu and I never had a thing to do with it.’”(pg 148).
