The pair were often arrested for petty crimes. By the time he reached his teens he had begun working as an appreciate for a witch doctor and as an adult he was making money casting “luck” spells for members of the Mexican drug cartel. He wanted to cast more powerful spells and finally graduated to murdering people so he could use their remains in his rituals. Just before he was caught he ordered one of his followers to shoot so he never faced justice for his horrific
"They were just a bunch of worthless little queers and punks." (John Wayne Gacy, 1978) “I’ve had photos of 21 of the victims and I’ve looked at them all over the years here and I’ve never recognized anyone of them." (John Wayne Gacy, year unknown) He called a random person and persuaded them to drink alcohol. After they have been close, he always used a “trick” which he said that he is going to do a magic show. He put a chain on their arm and raped them.
During his college years, he went to study law and psychology in Pennsylvania at Temple University, and later got a degree in psychology. Ted Bundy was one of the most psychotic serial killers of all time because of how he killed his victims, the insane psychological side of him, and how many he killed in total. Ted Bundy killed his victims in the most suspenseful and terrifying way. He would approach the young female
An example of this is when young prisoner Tommy is shot dead as a precaution. The Warden was scared he would let Andy know the truth that he was wrongly convicted and he is innocent after all. Those in roles of high power commonly use their title or authority to everyone else’s disadvantage. By destroying Andy’s property (the only things he owned and had control over) the staff were easily allowed to demonstrate their power and flaunt their supremacy. I believe Darabont included scenes like this to emphasize the idea that people in powerful roles in society often dictate and domineer others until they are downtrodden.
Being tried according to their age is fairer. A lot of people believe that age should not be considered at all when the felony is extremely severe. Justice needs to be served and they need to pay for the crime they have committed, juvenile or not. According to the Time magazine article ‘What Makes Teens Tick’ Dr. Jay Giedd states that “The very last part of the brain to be pruned or shaped to its adult dimensions is the prefrontal cortex, home of the executive functions.” An adult brain is different than teens, because an adult brain is more developed. Adolescents lack the ability to make good decisions, be more organized, and the ability for good planning.
My claim is that the Stanford Prison Experiment proves that good people can be easily corrupted by power. Power can corrupt even the most pure of people easily, as most people aren’t used to having so much that it can cause to them go crazy with it. As proved with the guards in the Stanford Prison Experiment, they
The late sixties and early seventies were mostly known as a time of overseas war and stateside flower power. Although for the Northern California communities, it was a time of fear and desperation. During this time a man, a psychopath really, was terrorizing the people with his deranged antics. This man was, and still is, one of the most well known and dangerous serial killers that the United States has ever produced. This man is the one and only infamous Zodiac Killer.
He pleaded insanity, but they saw that he knew of wrong doing and they convicted him 15 costive life sentences. Jeffery adjusted to prison life easily, but he wasn’t aloud to be with other prisoners. He later convicted the officer to let him join the other prisoners. He got a job with two other prisoners. They're names where Jesse Anderson, a white supremacist and a convicted murderer.
The reason why murders are brought down by that percent,is because crime is deterred by concealed handguns because most of the time a murderer would use a knife, a pipe, a hammer, or even their own car. “Rapes can be brought down by 5%” (Should adults have…) as well. The reason why, is because a rapist is going to have a hard time trying to rape someone, that means they’re going to be careful with who they pick and 9 times out of 10 when someone draws their gun, the rapist is going to get shot. “From 1977 to 1992”, nearly 120,000
During the 1920’s gang related crime was a serious issue. The leader of all this violence and corruption was a man named Al “Scarface” Capone (“Al Capone”). This organized crime, dehumanization, and corruption, became the ultimate image of Chicago for people throughout the world. He was largely immersed in things like gambling, prostitution, and the illegal sale of liquor. He was not convicted for any of his crimes, even the St. Valentine's Day massacre of 1929, until he was imprisoned for tax evasion (Horan).
