Is it justified to kill someone because they have gained too much power and are going to use it for the worse? Brutus has a very bad circumstance on his hands, he can kill Caesar and possibly be executed for his actions or he can let Caesar become king and watch Rome fall. There are many reasons why Brutus should and should not join the conspiracy. Brutus says, “I know no personal reason to spurn at him But for the general.” (II,i,11). Lucius Junius Brutus one of Brutus’ ancestor that turned Rome into a republic.
Imagine you 're a prisoner on death row and you and your lawyer are literally fighting for your life. How would you feel? Wouldn’t you want to live without knowing you could die tomorrow? This is called the capital punishment and many prisoners today are facing just this. The capital punishment is when somebody commits a crime so bad that prosecutors think that killing them and taking their life away is the best way to punishment by doing lethal injection, firearms.
Both of the short stories are about revenge, murder and madness. The narrators of both the Tell-Tale Heart and the Cask of Amontillado have very different motives for committing the murder each of them commits. In The Tell-Tale Heart, the narrator is insane and his motive behind killing the old man is that he cannot stand the sight of the old man’s “vulture eye”. He is tempted to close the eye forever, and so he does this by murdering him. 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.
Any reason, whether great or small should not be valid enough to result in the ending of a life. Plenty firmly agree. Therefore, many protest against the death sentence. One sign pictured in a New Republic article states, “Why do we kill people who kill people to show killing is wrong?” To demonstrate to society that murder is inhumane, authorities kill the offenders. This is cruel and not logical.
By using tactics he knows and using his abilities to his advantage and adrenaline from the thought of death. By trapping one if general Zaroff 's dogs that gave him confidence and I think it kind of made general Zaroff scared by seeing what mind games and tricks rainsford can pull off. This is the ending of my essay, I know I came out clearly and broad by this statement but I want you to think, why did general Zaroff want to hunt rainsford in the first place if he knew he
Additionally, people argue that a reasonable punishment for a person that has taken the life of another is “an eye for an eye.” However, taking a man’s life as a form of justice is wrong. Therefore, the government should ban capital punishment and come together to create a different way to seek justice. Can capital punishment be reversed? Everybody makes mistakes. For example, if a jury wrongly convicts a person of murder and the person is sentenced to life in prison, the jury can immediately have the conviction overturned and the person will be released.
They share a good dream. They love one another” (Scarseth 3). George killed Lennie out of love because he knew Lennie would suffer if he lived longer. Even though the action was bad, George decided it was best to kill Lennie to protect him. He knew that if Lennie was still alive, he would suffer greatly for two reasons: Curley wanted to avenge his wife and eventually Lennie would be sent to jail.
I think he should go to jail. Even though he is a little bit on the abnormal side, he done a crime. Murdering someone over an eye is indeed pretty abnormal, but I think he deserves to go to jail is that murdered an innocent man for no apparent reason. He killed him by suffocating him and by cutting his body parts up. The man heard a mysterious knock coming from the front door.
I disagree with the statement “killing is never justified”. Killing another is never justified in some circumstances, but in other circumstances, killing can be justified. Killing cannot be justified if crime was intentional or was planned beforehand. This is murder because the event was planned and it one person was killed by another. For example, if someone plans to kill someone beforehand, then killing in that case will not be justified because that person did it knowingly.
Lives were saved because he was caught and sentenced to death. Once a person has so much hatred for a race that they feel the need to go and target innocent people of that race, there is no coming back. It is better for him to get the death penalty than to be locked up with other inmates because those inmates are in danger simply because of their skin color. Next, the case of Cyntoia Brown proves that killing for self protection is justified. At the age of 16, Cyntoia Brown was being sold as a sex slave.
