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.
In most states, first-degree murder is defined as an unlawful killing that is both willful and premeditated, meaning that it was committed after planning or "lying in wait" for the victim. In addition, most states also adhere to a legal concept known as the "felony murder rule," under which a person commits first-degree murder if any death (even an accidental one) results from the commission of certain violent felonies. State laws categorizing murders into first, second and possibly third degrees generally require that the first-degree murders include three basic elements, such as: willfulness; deliberation; and premeditation. As to Mr. George Milton, in terms of willfulness, he had a specific intent to end a human life. Yet, whether he acted

Scout retells their story and eventually Tom’s death. In the article Lynching by Mark Twain, Mark talks about how the white population are cowards, but if a few brave men don’t participate in lynching, the rest of the population will catch on. Also in the article There are more slaves today than were seized from Africa in four centuries of the transAtlantic slave trade. The modern commerce in human rivals illegal drug trafficking in its global reach- and in the destruction of lives by Andrew Cockburn, we can see the horror of people in Serbia selling girls into slavery. Both articles incorporate the themes in To Kill A Mockingbird.

A serial killer by definition, is a person who murders more than two people over a certain span of time, usually following a foreseeable pattern (Brogaard). For example, Jeffrey Dahmer, Myra Hidley, and H. H. Holmes are all considered serial killers for their gruesome murders. Although every murderer has different motives behind their crimes, most serial killers tend to kill because they had a rough childhood past and or have psychological issues. There are signs people may show which involve the commencing of their psychopathic emotions that may lead to becoming unmerciful killers. Future mass murders may be prevented by taking individuals with early signs of becoming a serial killer to a psychiatrist, and getting them help.
This rule proved to be highly immoral, because it basically led one achieving and performing their revenge on another. Sentencing an individual to death for a crime they had committed, whether it be murder, rape, or another heinous crime, is using Hammurabi’s code. Individuals on death row were put there because members of the court believed that they had committed a crime worthy of death. By sentencing them to death, the court is committing a murder as well, even if it is of a guilty individual. Murdering or sentencing one to death row is not just, even if the individual is guilty of treason.

An indication that disproves the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision centers on the idea that one’s age should not be used as an excuse to minimize their punishment. In her essay “On Punishment and Teen Killers”, Jennifer Jenkins supports this by arguing that a juvenile should not use their age as an excuse to get out of trouble with the law. After mentioning the horrific case of a teenager who killed a pregnant woman for satisfaction, it is revealed that the murderer was charged with three life sentences. Despite the murderer’s wicked actions, some people still believed that the murderer did not deserve life sentences just because the killer was not considered a legal adult. To support her argument that age isn’t enough of an excuse, Jenkins writes “There are advocates who wish to minimize
The ACLU believes that the “state shouldn’t give itself the right to kill human beings especially when it kills with premeditation.” (ACLU The case against the death penalty). In a research study by Richard Dreser from the Death Penalty Information Center (1995). Many chiefs of police and attorneys believed that capital punishment wasn’t an effective crime deterrent.
