Proctor tears the confession paper because he realizes that honor is more important. He decided to stop living a sinful life of lies and become a better person so, he refuses to get anyone else involved with the witchcraft controversy. Proctor has had a new perspective of the trails now the he realizes all of the mistakes he has made. In the beginning of the play, Proctors perspective towards the hangings was the avoid and not be involved in it in any way. Now, Proctor realizes that by confessing, there will be blame set on other innocent people so by ripping the confession paper, it will not make the court look better.
He was also human! Killing another human is never right. I do understand that george was trying to protect lennie but killing him is certainly not the right way to do it. Lennie may have problems with accidentally killing things but george didn't have to kill him for it. George promised to protect lennie and by killing him George broke that promise.”Him and me was both born in auburn.
He saw that Ponyboy was going to get drowned! If he thought that justice was more important than his friendship he would have gone to the police and let Pony die. The police take care of the Socs. but he didn’t do this. He took matter in his own hands and was loyal.
Just the possibility that victims could have been killed in the various fires Abner set, make it enough reason for him to be a public menace. Although I believe my father would never put me in a position like Sarty’s, our morality is something that once it’s taken can never be returned. After someone commits the crime of falsely testifying or lying under oath, their morality becomes diminishes until they have none left. After the first instance, an individual who would falsely testify might feel bad over contributing to the needless suffering of individuals, but they tell their selves that nothing is wrong and that they are only protecting someone else at the price of others. It is this vicious cycle that strips a person of their morality, so if I were ever in a situation where my morality or protecting someone else were the question; my morality would come
He began to understand the distinction between his own rights and wrongs on his own and questioned “the use you learning to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right and aint no trouble to do wrong” (69). I believe one can decipher their own values, even if everyone thinks differently. Huck negated the public by feeling a dedication to his own beliefs and deciding his own morals. To emphasize the anxiety of living as an outsider in the community, Colonel Sherburn yelled, “Why don’t your juries hang murderers? Because they’re afraid the man’s friends will shoot them in the back, in the dark” (110).
Gang violence is nothing someone should play around with because you can get killed or even in trouble with the law for just associating with them. People have a mind set that gangs are there for protection and it's really not. Gangs will leave you in two places grave or in jail. Learning about gangs is essential to understanding history and how to stay away.In order to talk about what a gang is and why you should stay away you should know what it is.A gang is a group of 3 or more individuals in a group (“What is a gang?”). Sometimes you might hear some people call a gang a set but it means all the same.
You get hit by a stupid driver that didn’t see you. Would you want that to happen to you or to any of your loved ones? No, you would not, so I would be obviously common sense to make it illegal. Next time, don’t look on your phone while walking. There should be a law against distracted walking because too many pedestrian are dying.
After this exchange, Danforth began a trial to hold Cory accountable for his response, or lack thereof. Giles knew his reputation would be shattered if he gave up one or more of his friends for his own safety. Cory’s dignity and pride also would not allow him to respond yes or no to an accusation saying he practiced witchcraft. Giles decided not to give the court any satisfaction for his arrest by giving in to the accusations or denying them and hanging for it. Either way he could have answered would have killed him, morally or physically, so he didn’t answer.
Anyone that is an orphan more than likely won’t commit murder. It’s simply not logical. That’s what the attorney is basically telling the jury. This is a way to sway the audience’s opinion to a situation by using their emotions against them, too forget about the real problem at
Law 21 clearly states that if a thief has stolen property, he shall be put to death and hanged at the scene(Doc D). While others may say this is fair and that he deserves it, this law does not demarcate between official documents or a toy. Many of our youth have played harmless tricks on their peers and if they 're caught, even if it’s a dare, they shall die a painful and torturous death. This removes one man from society and it lowers the moral of the city and in turn, Babylonian, crippling it. This also means that the thief will never learn his lesson and his relatives may be in an outraged state with the government.
There is time gaps in his stories that don’t make sense. I think he had some type of jealousy for Adnan. I feel like he knows the real story of what happened, he claims he does. I understood when he said that he was scared to contact the police but not to contact the police because you sell a little bit of pot doesn’t make sense. I personally feel like if he is telling the truth about Adnan and if he honestly wanted to help Hae then he would have told the police.
They did not even think it was bad anymore because their state of mind was saying other people are here so it is okay, but in reality lynchings are very brutal and should not be seen as entertainment (Beitler). After listening to the Radio Diary I conclude that the people were describing how harsh lynchings were, they also viewed it as nothing but just an event. People were so caught up in mob mentality, thinking everyone else is watching so it is okay (“Strange Fruit: Anniversary of a Lynching”). Both articles about mob mentality showed that it is the thinking of a group of people who think it is okay to do bad things together such as causing a riot at a sporting event all together (Smith; Edmonds). In conclusion mob mentality is very bad, do not get caught up with bad events just because other people are doing it.
