Battered women face pit bulls and cobras. A pair of nicknames made up by professors of psychology at the University of Washington, in order to describe two types of battering husbands. In this essay I will compare the different expects and the similar expects of the batters. Both cobras and pit bulls were exposed to violence in their childhood. Cobras often had violent, traumatic childhoods, while the pit bulls have had fathers who battered their mothers.
As a child was she was by her father with Justa Samperio her mother. Justa was an alcoholic woman who mistreated and physical abuse Barraza. “One day her mother lost in his addiction and not having money, changed to Juana for three beers, allowing an older man molesting Juana and raping her.

Daniel Holtzclaw is an ex-Oklahoma City officer who is convicted of rape along with other several charges after he brutally abused many African American women over the course of six months. Daniel Holtzclaw was sentenced to 263 years in prison for the charges filed against him. Holtzclaw was convicted for 18 of 36 counts which included first-degree rape. Holtzclaw’s adamant lawyers tried to start a new trial by stating that there was not enough evidence but it was a lost cause although they did not want to accept it.

Nassar was formerly the Team USA’s gymnastics doctor and worked at gymnastics clubs in America, mainly Michigan, praised by many for his wonderful “treatments” and work. Nassar was arrested on November 21st 2016 and on December 7th, 2017 he was sentenced to 60 years in prison as a consequence for having images and videos of child pornography and on Jan 24th, 2018 was sentenced to a further 40-to-175 years in prison, only after his previous sentence was complete. The question is, does he really deserve to be sentenced for that great amount of time? Firstly, Nassar took advantage of his position and reputation as a doctor. He used his position as his excuse; covering his tracks with a blanket of lies, saying that when he used intravaginal treatments it would “help with recovery from injuries”.

In this essay I will compare the Cobras and the Pit bulls based on the text “Battered Women Face Pit Bulls and Cobras JANE E. BRODY”. I will show the similarities and the differences between both of them, and give my own perspective to this topic. when comparing the pitt Bulls to the Cobras the first thing that comes to mind is that both of them had traumatic childhood (in different ways). A lot of the times people connect to the fact they are violent adults to the fact they suffered from violence in the childhood. In addition to that, both of them are very possessive to their partners, they behave like they own them, they feel like they have the right to control their partner by the way of violence , and aggressiveness both verbally and
In this book the scholars divide battering men to two types: cobras and pit bulls. In this essay I will explain the similarities and differences between the two types. The violent behavior cobras and pit bulls share in common may be interpreted via their childhood. Both cobras and pit bulls grew up in violent houses and had suffered from a violent and traumatic childhood. However, cobras and pit bulls are different in various
Despite race discrimination around the world, there are still people who overcome and persevere through these challenges - often at great risk to themselves. During the 1930s, in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, a small town called Maycomb held a trial against an innocent African American man accused of raping a Caucasian woman. The reader experiences life in Maycomb through the eyes of ten year old girl name Jean-Louise Finch, Scout. In this case, Atticus Finch, Scout’s father, was assigned to be the lawyer for the accused, Tom Robinson. However, Atticus has integrity and tries his best for Tom even if his own life is at risk.
Celie's father (Pa), is not only verbally abusive, but also physically abusive, “He beat me for dressing trampy but he do it to me anyway.” (6). Pa beat Celie for the way that she dressed, but he also beat her for no reason at all. During this time in history, it was very common to beat your children or your wife, even though it was made illegal in 1920. Physical abuse is seen throughout the novel and is inflicted on Celie by both her father and husband Mr._____. In 2018, physical abuse is “hidden”, but it is present in such large numbers especially in children, “Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect… Every year more than 3.6 million referrals are made to child protection agencies…” (childhelp).
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
Because police brutality has increased to such extremes, misconduct has had many impacts on society and the law. Currently, there is great mistrust between citizens and police departments. Just as the King attacking caused riots in the L.A community, the recent brutality reports have caused major issues in cities nationwide. Some of these reports include the 1999, Amadou Diallo case when he came home from work and was shot at 41 times by the police and died. There was also the Eric Garner quandary in 2014 who was choked to death by police.Also, there was the John Crawford accident in 2014 who was on the phone with his mother of his kids when he was shot and killed by police for being suspected as a dangerous shooter.
Additionally, they have differences that involve the law and the way they want to die. Therefore, Dally Winston and Johnny Cade have huge differences in their lives, but also notable similarities. Johnny and Dally both have abusive parents that affect their lives in a crucial way. For example, Johnny’s parents drink alcohol, and they hit him and abuse him. Johnny is very weak and shy, so he runs away for the day or night, and comes back the next day.
Well, that isn’t always the case. In fact, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, it states that 1 in 4 men have experienced some kind of physical abuse in their lifetime. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence also claims that 1 in 7 men have experienced severe physical abuse by their significant other, and one in eighteen men have been a victim of stalking and were fearful of themselves or a loved one getting hurt (http://ncadv.org/learn-more/statistics). On the 2016 article “Male Victims of Domestic and Partner Abuse”, it states that nearly 2.2 million men have been victims of domestic abuse since the age of 16 and approximately 1.7 million men have experienced partner abuse since they were 16 years old. Children may also be a part of the group of people who have experienced domestic violence themselves.
When she was under the influence, she could be extremely aggressive and violent and then black out; at least according to Tom. After she would sober up, he would tell her all the horrible things she said and did while she was drunk, like the time she attacked him with a golf club. She feels ashamed and blames herself for not being a good enough wife for Tom, just as Melinda feels guilty as though the rape was her fault, even if it really wasn’t. It is later revealed that in reality, it was actually Tom who had done all those atrocious things. He would lie to Rachel, blaming her for all the things he had done, just to make her feel guilty, weak, and worthless.
The People v. O. J. Simpson trial took place between the years of 1994 and 1995. During this highly media covered case jury members were constantly changed out.
