He has his innocence shattered by the knowledge of his father’s involvement in the kidnapping of Filippo. “At that instant he knew, he ceased to know.” His father, someone who he idolised, someone who posed as a Godlike figure, someone who “would explain it all” was involved in the lowly crime of kidnapping. In addition, the once almighty father that he worshipped, was called an “imbecile”. The loss of innocence is key to the novel and its development. Another significant theme in I’m not Scared is adult cruelty.

Whoever he is,/ a lone man unknown in his crime... let that man drag out his life in agony”(Sophocles 280-284) With this oath Oedipus has just foresaw his own future. In unknowing irony, he convicts himself and sets his fate in motion from the start. The question
This is apparent through the appearance of his father. The apparition claims that “I am thy [Hamlet’s] father’s spirit” (I.v.14). This shows that the king’s physical body is dead but not his soul. But the king admits that he had done some bad things in his life therefore he is “doomed for a certain term to walk the night” (I.v.15).

In Hamlet, the passionate and hasty Laertes and the vengeful Fortinbras are foils for Hamlet's introspective personality and provide a basis for comparison of the hero's course of action. Laertes and Hamlet share a common goal of revenge for the murder of their father. Though their situation and the circumstances of their father's death coincide, their individual responses to the fatalities differ greatly, and serve to highlight Hamlet's tragic flaw. Upon hearing of his father's death, Laertes becomes totally preoccupied with thoughts of revenge. While Hamlet scrutinizes and evaluates the consequences of his actions, Laertes acts without forethought, saying, "Let come what comes only I'll be revenged / Most thoroughly for my father" (IV.v.138).
I think this because the reporter said “ He was trying to deny his victims families to watch him suffer like his victims suffered.” This makes the reader get the impression that he was utterly ashamed of what he has done and he regrets his actions deeply.

A second example of a fact was that “ Harris was sentenced to death” this one quote summarises
Elie Wiesel suggests through the events and thoughts of his characters that hatred kills innocence. Captain John Dawson’s death is a literal metaphor for the death of innocence. The Movement captures Dawson and holds him captive and as a bargaining tool to retrieve The Movement’s own captured man David ben Moshe, who is held captive by the English for attacking the English and attempting to steal from their arsenal.
