The first example I want to use is involving the case of Amanda Knox. Amanda Knox was convicted of murdering Meredith Kercher in Italy. When Amanda was being interrogated by police in the beginning, she was being pressured by police to admit to a crime she did not do. They also pressured her to accuse another man of the crime when she knew that other person did not do it as well. Knox was pressured by police and detectives to accuse another person for the murder of Meredith Kercher.
Once Macbeth completed his mission, he went back to Lady Macbeth with the bloody daggers and proudly stated, “I have done the deed. Didst thou not hear a noise?” Lady Macbeth became enraged when she saw he had the daggers and told him he needed to bring them back to the crime scene. Macbeth also says how he heard someone scream, “murder!” (2:2 25-26). This is a sign of Macbeth’s dirty conscious. Although Macbeth’s conscious is in this state, it becomes overridden by his ambition for power.

First off, Roald Dahl’s shocking mystery, “Lamb to the Slaughter,” has elements such as dramatic irony, inference gaps, and red herrings that help build a suspenseful feeling within the reader. This story is about a woman who murders her husband out of shock, and covers her footprints almost perfectly. To begin, in the
I decided to create a video of a trial in which Macduff accuses Macbeth of plotting Banquo’s murder, to punish him for his crime. I chose to do a video of a trial because it is a way for Macbeth’s corruption during his kingship to be revealed in a modern and different way than in the play. In the video, the costumes, lighting, acting, and characters were chosen to show evidence against Macbeth and to help set the tone during the trial. The characters from the play that are in the video are: Macduff, Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, Fleance, Ross, and Murderer 1. Macduff was the prosecutor in the trial and he was the best fit because he fights Macbeth at the end of the play (5.8.34-35).
—Georgette Heyer. In the article "Silent Justice in a Different Key: Glaspell's 'Trifles'" by Suzy Clarkson Holstein, Holstein emphasizes the differences between the male and female perspectives from the occurring events in the play "Trifles.” Today it is evident that men and females think very differently. Males think based on their motor skills and females base their thoughts on their intuition and emotions.

Martha noticed that Mrs Wright had left a bag of sugar open and due to her need to not leave a job unfinished, she begins to think of why Minnie would leave the sugar unfinished, what had interrupted her? This personality trait of Martha gave an insight into the mind of Minnie and could help the timeline or reasoning for the murder, while the men would never have understood the importance of the half done sugar job. Martha and Peters begin to investigate as the Sheriff asked. The Sheriff was more than likely joking, but the women took the chance to browse the Wright home. Within a cabinet, the women find an empty bird cage, immediately they both think “But she must have had one--or why would she have a cage?
By enforcing the duty to retreat before resorting to force the saving and changing of lives may take place. In reality, some situations lack the amount of seriousness to consider deadly force as the best measure to take. An example of a serious situation in which the laws should protect is shown through a life or death circumstance that John Kirkpatrick was found in. Kirkpatrick, a concealed carry permit holder, faced an intruder in his home on Friday, July 5, 2013. His nightmare began with his wife doing errands in town, while the UPS driver had just dropped off a package, and John, getting ready for dinner with his wife, remained in the back bedroom of their home.

She looks to get the help from Cogburn because of his history of violence towards criminals and the fact that he is known for getting the job done. When she gets to the town that he is in she goes to a court trial in order to find him and ask for his help. When she gets there she thinks that he is a young fit man with a shiny badge on his chest. But she is surprised and taken back when it turns out that he is, in fact, an older, one-eyed, heavyweight man with travel-stained clothes (Portis 43-44).

Although, the law forbidden women jurors, these two women, Mrs. Hale the wife of the prosecutor and Mrs. Peters the sheriff’s wife were clearly summoned to determine the fate of Minnie Foster Wright. The allegorical courtroom is Minnie’s kitchen filled with evidence and motive of crime that seemingly goes unnoticed by the sheriff as well as the prosecutor. A crime that is hidden far from the outside world much like the home where Minnie lives. A place isolated, neglected, lonesome and worn.
