To some readers, that is exactly the reason why they think the insane killer should be safe from the death penalty. But is that really the case? Is the killer simply an insane killer? One may think that while he is mentally insane, he is also a calculated killer. As stated in this quote, “I put in a dark lantern…
Getting rid of the theology of supernaturalism taking over an entire family. If Oscar sought Therapeutic help over his years, he would not have to worry about leaving in fear or dying, suddenly. “No matter what their religious healing disciplines are, or maybe, practitioners’ métiers implicitly support a holistic philosophy of life in which the natural and supernatural, the physical and the spiritual no longer represent two contradictory selves” (Viadrich 138). To be on the same page of living life out than believing a curse that is a historical myth, could affect everything one
Although Perry is responsible for the murder of four innocent people, Perry’s actions do not reflect on who he is as a person because he is easily influenced, therefore; showing how easily people can be pressured into doing something they would not typically do. Dick, a violent, cold-hearted, manipulator, has molded Perry into the person he is today. As Perry is a follower, Dick has taken advantage of that by turning Perry into the cold-blooded killer he is today. Capote displays Dick’s manipulation of Perry through symbolism to make evident that while Perry did pull the trigger on four innocent people, although the fault does not entirely lay on him, as he was taken advantage of by Dick.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. In Flannery O’Connor’s short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, the Misfit is depicted as a violent criminal who has escaped from the federal penitentiary. At first, the Misfit appears to be compassionate towards the grandmother, but when the grandmother identifies the Misfit as the escaped criminal, the Misfit becomes volatile and eventually violent towards the family. Although many would assume that the Misfit is psychotic, he opts to kill the family in order to save himself from being put back in the federal penitentiary.
The narrator talks into great detail about how exactly he killed the old man, but then suggests he is not mad because he was careful during the process which made him intelligent. His exact words were, “If still you think me mad, you will think so no longer when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body”(Poe). This paints a mood of being on edge because the motive behind the killing was solely based upon how the man 's eye watched him. This allows the reader to let their mind wander to what exactly about the eye made him so upset, leaving them suspenseful. The dull part of the story was presented by the actual killing of the man and the precautions the narrator took in order to get away with it(up until he admitted it).
After drinking a potion, he could change into Hyde, a person with no conscience. Soon, Jekyll is metamorphosing without taking the potion. Hyde later kills Sir Daniels Carew by beating him to death.

No one deserves to die, and no one deserves death. Some executions are justified, but David Herold’s was not. Herold was a skilled and talented man who was deprived into a corner to help a killer. James L. Swanson’s novel, Chasing Lincoln 's Killer, a diary entry, “Last Diary Entry of John Wilkes Booth,” and an article, “Lincoln Writ of Liberty” contain evidence that proves Herold’s innocence. Herold did help a murderer; however, he is like everyone, in that he is susceptible to violent threats.
Willie’s poisonous influence is that he decides to give favors to people he is sleeping with, even if it is for a good cause and that is why the affairs make him corrupt, because he is not making legitimate decisions based off of facts. In the end his affairs are his downfall as Sadie revealing the truth behind it led to Adam Stanton killing him
While his courage in rebelling against the potency of the Party can be admired, the method he chooses to employ in order to achieve his goal is not only morally reprehensible, but also very non-heroic. For example, in his discourse with O’Brien, Winston declares he is “prepared to commit murder…to commit acts of sabotage which may cause the death of hundreds of innocent people [and] to throw sulphuric acid in a child’s face” if it meant weakening the power of the Party (179-180). True heroes like Beowulf and Odysseus would never commit such unethical and detestable acts even if it meant succeeding. Winston’s decision to do so demonstrates he is just an ordinary human whose conscience can be easily clouded in the wake of adversity. (possible
Hyde was like a mask for Jekyll a different personality that wanted different things. Jekyll wanted to create an alter ego so he was able to things without feeling guilty or fear. If Jekyll didn’t create Hyde he would’ve lost his good status in the town and become a criminal. I strongly believe that when he was found dead in his house he committed suicide because he just couldn’t take it anymore.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Dr. Jekyll is a respected man, but out of his intentions to stay good comes an intense evil. He wanted to keep his good name, yet find a way to unleash his evil side. When Mr. Hyde is created it is with good intensions, but soon the evil becomes overwhelming and begins to control Mr. Jekyll. He only shows one person, Mr. Lanyon, his fatal second side.
Dr. Jekyll is seemingly good, kind, and benevolent; while is not purely good he is a moral gentleman. He started his experiment so he could totally separate the bad and the good in himself into two separate beings. He did not succeed, however, for Dr. Jekyll is plagued by the feeling that he wants to become evil again, thus he wants to become Mr. Hyde. It is important to note that Mr. Hyde is completely evil; he has no goodness in him, in contrast to Dr. Jekyll who was a troubled mix. Mr. Hyde feels no remorse for any evil he has done and actually feels elated when he does commit a moral sin.
They are surprised to what they find. They find out that the evil side, Mr. Hyde is there and they think that Dr. Jekyll was murdered. He wasn 't murdered because the evil side of him took over his
Depending on who you talk to, Adnan Syed could be referred to as a psychopath. Although Adnan wanted to share his innocence, his defender told him not to otherwise he would make matters worse for himself. During the case, Adnan’s defence attorney asked for the jury to consider it a crime of passion, rather than intent to kill. However, the judge disagreed and said that Hae’s murder was planned and that Adnan used intellect and charisma to manipulate Hae and took her to her
