Captain Phillips tried to defend the boat from the pirates every way possible to stop them from getting on the boat and he defended while they were on the boat also. He did every protocol he needed to do to keep the pirates from boarding but failed. When the pirates boarded he let his crew down below deck to save them while he faced the pirates like a hero. He locked down everything letting his crew be away from the pirates. Captain Phillips also tried to save his crew by acting like the ship was broken and that there were no more people on board, but the pirates did not believe him.
Another ethical dilemma is when Junior slept while they were on shift and Barnes found out and told everyone “I would take an interest in seeing a person suffer if they slept on an ambush” but Junior blamed it all on Taylor when Taylor was awake the entire time. As well Barnes refused to give medical attention to Taylor which leads him to try everything that he can to stay alive. Over all throughout this film, everything was an ethical dilemma, to calling each other names, lying about who slept , killing individuals for no reason, smoking cannabis, and especially the fight between Taylor and Barnes where Barnes gets stabbed 7 times by

The physical pain he suffered could be solved over time, but the mental damage will always stay with him. I cannot tell you how many times Perry was threatened with death. One major example of this is on page 166, “folks dangled a noose near the Vanderbilt bench, pretending they were threatening to hang Wallace”. This is really bad because they were threatening to kill him in one of the most painful ways, breaking his neck and then suffocation. Also on page 166, it states that his teammates ignored everything going on.
Two tidesmen on the ship stayed on board overnight and swore nothing had been unloaded. This event was called, The Liberty Affair. A month later one of the tidesmen changed his story.

Odysseus knew it himself that he and his men may not be able to get through this big of an obstacle, but he just pushed them forward. This shows an act of foolishness as leader because he did not notify his men of the dangerous obstacle coming towards him, but just keeps put to leave his men to fend for themselves.

Two days later... Having endured an hour-long grilling from Fuller about Booker’s disappearance, Tom exited his superior’s office feeling more than a little dispirited. Astute enough to know something had happened at the fraternity, Fuller had badgered him relentlessly about the hazing case, but Tom had remained stubbornly tight-lipped and had revealed only the bare facts, much to his captain’s indignation. But there was a reason behind Tom’s reticence. Without Booker by his side, he had come to acknowledge his rape as his own private hell and not something he could readily share with his friends.

The boys turned into monsters because they were so afraid of the news Dave had because he was the one who told the family that their loved one was killed in combat. The boys still were so afraid of what Dave wanted to tell them that they continued to beat him up until, "He closed his mouth and tried to crawl away" (5). Another way to use suspense is to to show how someone is so angry and afraid that they turn into some they are not and get very violent. At this part of the story Dave was trying to come tell him that his father had passed away in combat, but he was too afraid to hear him say the words that he didn 't let him and just beat Dave up. While reading the suspense of how badly the boys wanted to beat Dave up was a release of anger and fear, which is terrifying in the position of
