The people mentioned in this article, such as Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo and Marilou Danley (Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend), feel shocked that anything like this could even happen, as do I and most of America. Marilou Danley described her boyfriend to be, “a kind, caring man” (Winsor and Jacobo 2017), she believed him to be incapable of hatred and hurting people. I believe that this event will change security measures at hotels and will cause people to be extremely diligent in crowds and sceptical of people’s motives. Also, I believe that no matter how many regulations the government puts on guns, criminals will find away around them and use these weapons for harmful activities. When this investigation is over I hope that the government will enforce laws more proactively and help bring closer to the families involved in this tragic
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Arthur Radley 's role brought out one of the major themes of the book. Scout learned that her moral values were not right, so she decided to fix them. After talking to Scout about different situations, Atticus explained that "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.” (Lee 39) Scout didn 't understand why Arthur stayed in the house all the time. She thought of a bunch of senseless reasons why, when all along none of it was true. Once she met him and saw things from his shoes, she finally understood him.
Nonetheless, the other murderer, Perry Smith, had no motive for killing the Clutter family after realizing there was no fortune. That is what makes Perry Smith a psychopath. The life Perry was forced to live in caused him to commit the murders. It was fate that made Perry Smith a murderer. Perry killed because of the way he was raised to be, or not raised to be.
Silko says “No person, no citizen is free to travel without the scrutiny of the Border Patrol,” (4) as a way to connect with the reader emotionally to the idea of fear and anger towards the Border Patrol agents. Although the sentence itself is counter intuitive of her idea of Border Patrol only target specific groups of people. This sentence shows that all citizens are scrutinized by the Border Patrol, which is a good scare tactic but weakens her claims about the discrimination towards specific groups of people. I think this sentence itself is a great option if her paper was meant to only scare the audience, but her goal is to inform and persuade the audience of the Border Patrol agents unjust behavior but you can not convince people with only anecdotal
A person who regrets something they’ve done, who is truly reticent of a mistake, should not giggle and be so flippant. (Pow) If a person is claiming self-defense, she should not lie and repeatedly change stories. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a fitting and accurate diagnosis, but it does not diminish the horror of the crime she committed. She changed her plea from guilty to not guilty, and then explained it was self-defense, and then again elaborated that it was a case of home invasion. (Pow) Nevertheless, throughout it all, Arias was only able to recall minimal details from the event.
Even though she is screaming about discipline and order, the patients continue to ignore her pleas and sit in front of the television watching nothing. The small act of rebelling and Ratched losing signifies that even though McMurphy’s achievement was small, ruining the combine brings hope back to the patients that there is a slight chance they can save themselves from total destruction. Nurse Ratched emitting the fog to continue running a perfect “combine” has caused a continuous destruction of the patient’s life, and with McMurphy on their side, the patients have a slight chance of saving themselves from Nurse Ratched and the combine
Her education had been quite rigid, and she commented in Fundi that she did not see schools as places where one was necessarily "free to express an opinion," something she was very anxious to do” ( “Ella Josephine Baker” ). Ella thinks she has a more important role in the world than teaching. She wanted a place where children could speak freely about racism and discrimination without getting in trouble. Jem and Scout think people are judgemental because of race. “Jem and Scout believed that Tom Robinson would be acquitted, but he was found guilty by the all white jury” ( Magill and Kohler 6594 ).
She’s uh woman and her place is in de home.” In reality, Jody was right, Janie never cared or thought to make a speech for the public, but the fact that Jody Starks was the one to decide for her, gave Janie a “cold” (pg. 61) sensation that ran through her spine, for she knew that this change may not bring the joy and passion she once presumed. As mayor, Jody allowed those around him (including his wife) become aware of the power and authority he had over any being both mentally and economically. To the town’s folks, it seemed that slavery had once again emerged from depths of their own flesh and color, “they had murmured hotly about slavery being over, but every man filled his assignment”
The last paragraphs in the article keep the audience on her side while also allowing her audience room to think about their own behaviors. A joke is inserted to remind them of the ridiculousness of the birther movement and keep the article focused on that specific group. However the paragraph following that tells the real message as Kolbert quotes Sunstein once again. Now the article has switched as this is now directed towards her audience as she say it is human behavior and something we all do.The last line of the article is “computers don 't spread rumors; people do” This is the main message
Although Beowulf liked the gifts he never asked for them. He was only trying to help out King Hrothgar and wanted to fight. Although defeating Grendel was not enough Grendel 's mother had to be defeated to for trying to kill people in the town. Beowulf took the challenge. When Beowulf goes to her he feels as if though he is going to die.
When my grandmother called me, I’d say, ‘Yes ma’am.’ I wanted to say, ‘Why do you hit me? Am I really a bad child? Why do you treat me like I’m not part of your family?’” As I’m reading his story he has a very remarkable story in my opinion, and he’s a perfect reason we need to change this system. He wanted to tell the cops or his social worker but he was afraid to because he would be hit by his foster grandma. For some children this may not even work but it is definitely worth a shot to help these kids like Deshon.
School shootings are pretty rare even though they have been more frequent recently. I feel like the students on campus that had a concealed weapon on them could end up being a victim if there ever was a shooting. For example, if law enforcement saw a man trying to shoot the shooter with his concealed weapon and they shoot the concealed weapon guy not knowing he was not the actual shooter, then that brings up a whole different situation of not knowing who was the shooter and who was trying to help until it is too
