In the article Thirty-Eight Who Saw Murder Didn 't Call Police, author Martin Gansberg recalls the events that occurred on the night of March 13, 1964. "38 respectful, law abiding citizens" (120) stood idle as Kitty Genovese was hunted down on three separate occasions and murdered. Not once was an attempt made to alert authorities, an action that may have resulted in Kitty 's life being spared. When questioned, the spectators had a multitude of excuses for why they had not notified authorities, some of which included, "I didn 't want to get involved," (122) and even, "I was tired" (123). This article demonstrates the violence of this time period and the unwillingness of humans to assist those in need.
At the beginning of the story there was an un ordinary mom named Starr knight, she was one to wear glossy make up and brand name clothes. Until her husband found her wearing baggy clothes and murdered in a tangle of kudzu. That 's how the beginning of the book started with mistrys.

The students and staff who suffered from this horrific encounter did not want to be hunted nor did they choose too. The hunter can pick and choose whom he/she wants to hunt, yet the hunted does not get to choose whom they are being hunted by. A school shooting relates to "The Most Dangerous Game" because like Zaroff, the shooter picked what school he wanted to take advantage of, and Zaroff chose to take advantage of the ship-wreak
I couldn’t believe they were going to charge him with murder just because of one eyewitness. I was disappointed that law enforcement didn’t bother getting a search warrant for his house or even talk to his family. I couldn’t believe Michael Glove beat Brenton just to get him to confess because Michael just wanted to end the case. Also, if law enforcement would have just got the purse and check for fingerprints then everything would have been handled differently. Instead, they thought it was easier to charge him with murder and ruin a fifteen year old life.
Adnan could not have killed Hae. On January 13 Hae Min Lee was last seen around 3:00pm after school and her body was found in a woodsy park on February 9 and was identified two days later. The first suspect for the crime was her ex-boyfriend Adnan who was still attending high school. After the sloppy course of interrogations the jury found him guilty with the murder of Hae. But then what was the evidence that was used to lock Adnan up for his whole life, there was no physical evidence that Adnan killed Hae and secondly none of the stories that Hae's friend make are really truthful to what actually happened mainly referring Jay at this point.

He needed to tell someone before he died. However he also needed to ensure that he was not going to be punish for what he has done. What Montresor could have been thinking is that if he confessed his crimes at a very old age, then they would not be able to prosecute him for the crimes that he has committed because there was not in the city to prosecute him if he is already close to

Situational irony was revealed both stories because a situation occurred in which actions had an effect that was the complete opposite from what was intended, so that the outcome is contrary to what was expected. In A Rose For Emily many reader including myself expected Emily to kill herself because of the hardships and losses of love ones but at the end of the story she actually poisoned Homer to kill him. No person in the town knew she killed until she was dead herself, 40 years later. Despite Homer not having the desire to married Emily to take it upon her to make sure marriage will be created by death. Therefore, she murders Homer in order to form a everlasting bond.
Those who believe that O.J. is innocent point out the fact that the murder weapon was never found. They believe that if O.J. had committed the murders, he would have had to take his bloody clothes and murder weapon through airport security and given them to Robert Kardashian knowing that the bodies could have been discovered before he landed and the police could have been waiting for him in Chicago (Dershowitz 135). This would have been too risky, showing that O.J. could not have committed the murders. However, on the night of the murder, O.J. got into Mr. Park’s limousine with a small black bag.
Imagine finding a ransom note one day, telling you your son was taken and you must follow the directions given to get him back. Sadly, that is exactly what happened to Jacob Franks and Flora Franks. Murder has always been a big issue in big cities like Chicago. People are shot or stabbed in the heat of the moment, but not as common is a planned murder. There are many different reasons people kill other people, greed, anger, drugs, revenge, even self-defense, but the reason Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb killed Bobby Franks was for a completely different reason; to see if they could get away with it.
Grasping the context of “Thirty-Eight Who Saw Murder Didn’t Call” is essential to the message and point author Martin Gansberg is conveying. Recounting the society changing murder of independant woman, Catherine Kitty Genovese, in the boroughs of Queens in New York, Gansburg describes the callous lack of action by citizens who witnessed and heard the crime but yet did not interfere to thwart the assassination. Not calling the police or going downstairs to try and rescue Kitty, a few cowardly neighborhood residents simply shouted at the assailant. This only startled the attacker, causing him to temporarily scurry back into the shadows. Observing from the cover of darkness that no help would come for his victim, the murderer was able to return
The Busy Woman Martin Gansberg describes an incident in his essay “Thirty-Eight Who Saw a Murder Didn’t Call the Police”, in which many people watched a terrific murder for more than half an hour and therefore, no one called the police until the victim was dead. Mainly, the reasons were incoherent as the neighbors were tired or do not know what to do. Eventually, people do not often help when someone is in trouble, they give illogical excuses to be unable to help; there is not a solid excuse that justifies people for not helping. Following this, I witnessed an act in which my aunt, Karla, did not help someone who was running out of battery since she was busy and late for work. Commonly, people are an egoist, they prefer to take care of themselves
Capital punishment, also known as the death penalty, and the debate about its abolition is the largest point of the essay written by Steve Earle, titled "A Death in Texas”. This form of punishment should be abolished for 3 reasons; First, It does not seem to have a direct effect on deterring murder rates, It has negative effects on society, and is inconsistent with American ideals. To begin, the death penalty is unnecessary since it is ineffective at deterring rates of murder. In fact, 88% of the country's top criminologists do not believe the death penalty acts as a deterrent to homicide, according to the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology. In opposition, supporters may argue that it may indeed help to deter murder rates as they have
