Oedipus needed answers, so he sent for a blind seer named Teiresias to give him the answers he was looking for. Once Teiresias knows what’s going on he dreads to tell Oedipus that he is the killer. The two men go back and forth until Oedipus says something that triggers Teiresias “you planned it, you had it done, you all but killed him with your own hands: if you had eyes, I’d say the crime was yours, and yours alone” (1.332-334). Oedipus still given the information and basically the whole truth is too caught up in his head and ignorant to the facts. This was an example of the irony that Oedipus is ‘blind’.
Now what Tybalt is telling us is that Romeo has killed before but has only been sentenced to be a villain and not to death. So not only has he killed before he has bribed the judge of his real sentence. From the scenes, we don't see he would probably be off upping his kills per day always getting away with it. This is why I believe that Romeo and Juliet is not in fact a love story at all. Shown from the math above and the proof it is fair to say that Romeo is a serial killer.
Yes it was this!... whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold;… I made up my mind to take the life of the old man.”(78) “…for it was not the old man who vexed me, but his Evil Eye.” (80) The suspect made it very clear what his intentions were, and why. He isn’t a lunatic on a killing spree, but someone who despises something and wants it gone. The anonymous murderer was aware of his actions, patient, and proud. “You should have seen how wisely I proceeded – with what caution – with what foresight – with what dissimulation I went to work!…the whole week before I killed him.
Macbeth had over the course of the three stages of evil many downfalls such as his love of life and friends. He previously had a brother and a father figure but he killed them for greatness and envy. In return for these murders, he obtained everything he wanted until he wondered if it was worth all he had done all the people he had killed to have it and then all he had was justly taken from him. His psyche evolved many times throughout the play but it evolved most when he committed a murder in which it was someone close to him. He had friends and relationships but lost to his temptation and that is what ultimately destroyed
Whereas, in The Cask of Amontillado, the reason behind the murder is revenge, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.” Additionally, Montressor’s jealousy is another reason because of which he murders Fortunato. The other difference noticed in the short stories, is that in both of the short stories the aftermath of the murder is different. In The Tell Tale Heart, in the near end of the story after the murder, the narrator feels very happy , and
I led my men straight into a massacre, (Example 2, imagery and inference. The strong wording of this line allows one to infer that Washington is still plagued with guilt from his past mistakes, as well a providing imagery towards the brutality of what happened and how this still effects him. This line could also be considered hyperbole, as he did not purposefully lead anyone into a known massacre, but the event seemingly did turn into one— so it would not be accurate to classify it as a hyperbole.) I witnessed their deaths firsthand. (Example 3, imagery.
To start off, Raskolnikov, who had brutally murdered the two women, feels troubled by his actions as seeds of doubt begin to enter his mind, He begins to rationalize his murder by saying, “The old woman was only an illness…. I was in a hurry to overstep…. I didn’t kill a human being, but a principle! I killed the principle, but I didn’t overstep...And what shows that I am utterly a louse,’ he added, grinding his teeth, ‘is that I am perhaps viler and more loathsome than the louse I killed.” Here, Dostoevsky portrays Raskolnikov yet again in two lights. The evil within Raskolnikov is evident when Raskolnikov devalues human worth and refers to the old pawnbroker as a “principle” rather than a “human being.” This lack of respect for a human life suggests that Raskolnikov perhaps is not capable of showing remorse or regret after all.
I think that because, at the end he got his revenge and killed him, it might’ve took a long time to do it and it did cost people’s lives, but he got his revenge. In document F it says, “For God only can take vengeance of the sole,” In document e, it says, that Claudius, started praying because he knew that hamlet knows about his murder. At the end of his prayer he says, “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.” In document A, it says that the killing of Claudius is justified because, Claudius lied about killing the old king, Claudius also stole his brother’s wife, life, and his crown. The ghost of the king said, “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life Now wears his crown.” To hamlets face. I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too.
He pulls at the heartstrings of Victor’s emotions but Victor can see the true evil that is within him. “But it is true that I am a wretch. I have murdered the lovely and helpless; I have strangled the innocent as they slept and grasped to death his throat who never injured me or any other living being,” had mentioned the monster after Victor’s death (197). The monster claims that he was unloved, and he was right in that regard, but that does not form evil. Evil is formed by the weakness of one’s mind, not neglect.
I am against the Death Penalty. I am against the Death Penalty, because the executioners kill people that turn out, innocent. ¨The prosecutor, who had a documented history of racial bias, said he could tell Hinton was guilty and evil just by looking at him. In Hinton 's case he was wrongfully tried for murder just by a person 's opinion, and his race, and his looks. They were prejudiced.
I believe that Jay is guilty because he never gave a perfectly in detail response that would show otherwise. He changed his story multiple times. He added information sometimes and would took some away. He had a guilty look on his face in pictures and when he talked there was something about his tone of voice that made me think ‘guilty.’ Jay came in months later to talk about what happened that day and he owned up to being an assist to murder. I feel that he should have gotten some time in jail because he claims to have been there at the scene and helped to bury Hae.
Hughes ended up dropping Manson because of defending Van Houten, who Hughes thought could convince the jury that she was under the influence of Manson. That move might have cost Hughes his life, as he went camping and disappeared. His decomposed body was found months later. It was said to be killing set forth by “The Mason Family” for abandoning their leader. Manson’s followers showed no remorse during the trial and even laughed during talk and photos of the crime scenes.
While it can be argued that V has the ultimate goal, V first had his own goals of vengeance. Other than saving Evey, one of the first act of justice we see is V taking Mr. Prothero. However, this act was revenge for Mr Prothero being cruel to him at the resettlement camp he was assigned to. He then proceeded to kill the the Bishop and Doctor, who worked at his resettlement camp. These acts of murder break
Shot and killed six members of his family both his parents, his two younger sisters, and two younger brothers at 112 ocean avenue, in a large dutch house situated in a suburban neighborhood. In Amityville on the south shore of Long Island, NY. He was convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to 150 years in prison. DeFeo was asked several times what had happened and stated that “ As far as i’m concerned, if i didn’t kill my family they were going to kill me, and as far as i’m concerned what i did was self defense and there was nothing wrong with it. When i got the gun in my hand i just couldn’t stop and there was no doubt in my mind who i was , i am God”.
Christians are hated just for a simple believe, everyone believes in something, yet we are letting this minority get murdered at the hands of an enemy. Many might not think of the shooter as an enemy, but he is; he killed people, people that are just like you and your brother or sister. This man slaughter someone’s child, best friend, sibling, classmate, etc. There is not a difference of this killing to 9/11 other than the number of deaths, yet the Americans fought for that to stop. What makes these lives less important?
