The theme of "The Utterly Perfect Murder" by Ray Bradbury is holding grudges and wanting revenge on something that happened long ago. When Doug arrived at Ralph Underhill's house he thought, "I had been the center of his world, someone to attack, beat, pummel, bruise"(Bradbury). Ralph was a bully to Doug and he wanted revenge. Doug was going to kill him. Doug thought Ralph wouldn't remember him, he felt that the only reason he remembered his name is because Ralph thought about him
He is portrayed as a mastermind in the cold-blooded killing of the Clutters family, a man with little respect for the lives of others, which can be seen through Dick’s expression before the murder of the Clutters when he converses Perry, “We’re gonna go in there and splatter those walls with hair” (Capote 234). This sudden tone shift enables Capote to depict Dick as a cruel and immoral character. Dick’s lack of empathy and concern for other people beside himself allow him to commit crimes without remorse, which is in contrast to Perry’s moral contemplation after each bad actions they committed. Moreover, Dick is represented as the true criminal with evident motives in murdering the Clutters, while Perry is seen as a vulnerable victim who depends on Dick for validation and acceptance, something in which Dick happily provides in order to manipulate Perry, as Capote writes, “Dick became convinced that Perry was that rarity, ‘a natural born killer,’—absolutely sane but conscienceless, and capable of dealing with or without motive, the coldest-blooded deathblows. It was Dick's theory that such a gift could, under his supervision, be profitably exploited” (Capote 205).
The first murder of King Duncan only sealed Macbeth’s paranoia and served as a foundation for the murders of Banquo and Macduff’s family. After the first murder, Macbeth feels a colossal amount of guilt and shame. After the murder of Banquo, he feels that it is not enough since Fleance escaped, developing his guilt and shame of harming others into a fear for his own safety; a devastating degradation. However, during the assassination of Macduff’s family, Macbeth gives the command immediately without thought and without a trace of remorse after doing so. This thereby concludes his psychological downfall as he no longer feels guilty, ashamed, or fears
Both of the short stories are about revenge, murder and madness. The narrators of both the Tell-Tale Heart and the Cask of Amontillado have very different motives for committing the murder each of them commits. In The Tell-Tale Heart, the narrator is insane and his motive behind killing the old man is that he cannot stand the sight of the old man’s “vulture eye”. He is tempted to close the eye forever, and so he does this by murdering him. 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.
‘Lennie begged, “Le 's do it now. Le 's get that place now.”’ George concurs, places the Luger on the back of Lennie’s head, and shoots him. One of the most controversial aspects of George Steinbeck 's novel Of Mice and Men, was the death of Lennie by his friend’s hands. Many believe that George murdered him in Lennie’s best interest, yet many others believe that George was being selfish and with his act, removed the burden of Lennie.

Two men plot the murder of the people who they swore loyalty to, the ones they promised to protect, all in the name of wealth. The victims have little clue and trusts their death angel more than anyone. Little do both victims know they've welcomed death into their homes and hearts. The story seems eerily familiar and too fictional to be true, yet it is both. One of those men is Macbeth, who is a loyal soldier driven by ambition, and the other is Henthorn, a man blinded by greed.
He reported to a friend, who testified at his trial, about his ‘thrill kill’ that he just wanted to ‘see what it would feel like to shoot someone’”(Jenkins). This shows that the murderer will shoot someone for the sake of having fun. I believes that he should deserves the JLWOP because from how he killed a pregnant mother without giving a bit of hesistant.

“I killed so many women I have a hard time keeping them straight,” he said in a statement read by the Deputy Prosecutor Jeff Baird. Mr. Ridgway planned to kill as many women as he could and all were prostitutes. He stated he picked prostitutes because he hated them and he didn 't want to pay for sex.

The significance of this memory is that it shows the reader that Ruth is fully aware of the fact that Matt is preparing to kill Richard that night and that she is also alright with letting him go and commit murder, and likely the only possible reason why a sweet woman like Ruth would be willing to let her husband murder another human being would be because of her grieving, and the belief this loss gave her and her husband that it was morally acceptable to kill Richard because he murdered their son. Overall, that is how Ruth appears to be suffering from loss as seen through her thoughts and

Seen throughout the book, Of Mice and Men, the character development of the main character, Lennie, was changing to a more violent and uncontrollable human, and foreshadowed his death. Since Lennie killed Curley’s wife he was a fugitive, and anyone who killed him is just. In the novel of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, the character George is justified in killing Lennie because of his actions caused by his disabilities allowing for a better life. George’s decision on killing Lennie was the right one. Lennie had no judgment on whether or not something was legal because of his mental illness.

First and foremost, his neighbor heard the man scream, “I’m going to kill you!” How does one argue against that? He stated his intent, and he ended up killing his father with a knife he bought the night of. That is no coincidence, it was purposeful and planned like a predator catching its prey. Although it may have been planned, which you can see from the lack of fingerprints on the switch knife, the boy might have grown nervous at the idea of committing murder, causing him to do such a sloppy cut despite his expertise. As a lawyer, I know how these criminals think and how they work.
