He could have actually put in the work and could have made better decisions. But, what is in the past, can’t be undone. You need to see how each decision will affect you in the future. Whether it is procrastinating on a major essay, or stealing a piece of gum from the store. You need to be aware of your surroundings and that’s what Mick was not.
Citizens who cooperate with any law enforcement officer will end up well because no use of force or breaking of the law was committed in the situation. Unlike other cases some citizen seem to dislike officers, which leads them not to comply with officers and that leads officers to make quick decisions to not let these citizens get out of control. According to the article Organizational-level police discretion states that, “Thus,
Those understandably rebellious individuals were punished severely, and were most probably treated a lot worse than the other...more compliant captives. So whilst this may sound slightly implausible, I believe it is actually quite well-grounded. If Equiano was recalcitrant, then there is little chance that he would, firstly, be up on deck, and secondly and more importantly, be able to satiate his desires such as using the quadrant. His captors simply would not have allowed him to; unruly prisoners would have been forced to remain below deck. But Olaudah demonstrated the beneficial character trait of compliance, and because of his obedience, the crew trusted
The document “Crime and Punishment in the Elizabethan Era” also points out that the law was flexible and could be applied differently based on the situation. When a person was convicted of treason, they were not always executed immediately. Some were inhumanely tortured for more information to see if they were working with others, despite the obvious lack of morality in doing this, it worked. However, on the other hand, the Elizabethan Law did have at least some moral sense to it as people some were spared from torture, and even execution in certain circumstances. When pregnant women were sentenced to death they could be spared for their the lives of their unborn children.
“Don 't make a permanent decision for your temporary emotion”. This quote speaks volumes when analyzing one’s daily activities and how decision making is an influential piece to those activities. Human beings are obligated to make decisions every day--some that are made impulsively--but they do not at all reflect one’s actual character. Many people often often predetermine one’s character/morality based off of an incautious decision, but remain oblivious to the reasoning behind the choice that was made. Although one’s choices can be either detrimental or benign to their lives, they have no correlation with their true disposition.
Secondly, Anton Vincent’s brother tells him what he is doing is illegal and is against the law, therefore he is not following the rules. But Vincent tells him that he has gotten to this position on his own merit. Vincent is willing to go jail afterwards because he just wants to live his dream. I think that Vincent would not have had to break the rules if they did not discriminate against him, therefore they did not leave him with very many options.
If George just kept on moving with Lennie, sooner or later someone could have found Lennie’s well hidden disability. People knowing about Lennie’s disability could create more pain for Lennie because they may have sterilized or killed him for being unuseful to society. Some may say that George made mistakes too. Yes, George made mistakes such as telling Lennie to hit Curley, but none of his mistakes caused deaths. Furthermore, he didn’t have a disability.
They claim that if they are kept in a cell rather than being on the streets, they will not be able to solicit. This is not an appropriate solution because they will continue asking for help in order to survive once they are released. They, like any other human being, have hardships, often with negative effects. In a myriad of cases, their troubles land them a spot on the streets, and because of this, they do what anyone would do in a similar situation, they do their best to stay alive.
His rebelliousness also backs up Vonnegut’s feelings about freedom. If Harrison was never rebellious or had any rebellious thoughts, he would have stayed in jail and never would have tried to break free. However, Harrison experiences those thoughts and feelings throughout the entire piece, which allows him to chase after his freedom. The fact that he has the urge to pursue freedom, only proves the fact that sometimes people need to take risks to acquire
Mark Twain has decided to write in a hero who turns out cowardly, being too afraid to go back and tell his story, one who instead turns to seclusion far away from what he knows. Which, in a way, is what Mark Twain did during his process of writing Huckleberry Finn. Huck turns out to be somewhat relatable to the man who is afraid of what people think, but that is not a true hero. A true hero is willing to do whatever it takes to do the right thing morally. Huck’s morals have changed for the better as seen in the novel; making it all the more curious when he does not follow the archetype laid out for him.
It is clear to see that if incarcerated individuals could vote while in prison many negative factors they face would be prevented. However, Politician’s wouldn’t want this to happen because they know that this would go against or hurt their campaign for many reasons, one being they wouldn’t be able to successfully persuade both incarcerated individuals and those of us in society due to one party (incarcerated individuals or citizens) being able to benefit from the promises of the candidate and one not. This wouldn’t be beneficial to those who oversee private prisons either because they would be prosecuted if the truths came to light about the mistreatment and injustice of those who are in jail face in their day to day lives. These wrongdoings could be changed in many ways but if I had to step up and do it personally I would demonstrate through signing a petition or marching for change. Signing a petition that would speak out and highlight things that need to change to ensure a safe life for their inmates would ultimately cause the overseers to consider my proposition to prevent a scandal.
Is doing the right thing really as important as everyone says it is? Billy Budd takes place on a ship during wartime. The main character, Billy Budd was known as being a peacemaker and a great man. He stuttered and had trouble expressing his emotions, but he was always positive. The crew loved Billy but he would always get in trouble for the smallest things because Claggart, the Master of Arms, hated him.
Throughout the course of history, there are many incidents where things have gone horribly wrong. These occurrences and decisions could have been made very consciously, or just a pure accident. In the occasions that the events are done consciously, those who are in the wrong can take responsibility from their mistake as this is the only way to start learning from them. When thinking of examples of people who have made mistakes and them owning up to that mistake and learning from it, many came to my mind. However, there is one story in particular that affected many families, and has been a learning curve for many individuals, all caused by one man.
In the article “Anatoli Boukreev (Responds to Krakauer)”, Boukreev argues against author Jon Krakauer and his initial allegations in his article “Into Thin Air”, which was published in the September 1996 issue of Outside Magazine. He claims that he was more than qualified to guide groups of paying clients to summit Mount Everest. This is due to his extensive experience in doing exactly that. For example, he has conquered a grand total of 22 mountains in more than twenty years. He has climbed all 22 of these without the assistance of any sort of supplementary oxygen.
