The purpose in doing this was to make him believe that he could deprive himself of all sorrows by forcing others to feel the way he has felt in the past. Essentially Harris has led himself to believe that he could trace the acts of evil which occurred throughout his life by identifying violent acts upon other people. And thus, the joy that the defendant felt after murdering these two boys is reflected through the affliction he suffered while growing up. In order for him to make sense of the past violence he needed to project these experiences outward so as to regenerate the meaning that was originally brought forth from past experiences. Moreover, without Harris’ past afflictions the uttermost euphoria that occurred while murdering these boys would
George also did everything he could to kill Lennie in the most humane way possible. Lastly George knew couldn’t just run with Lennie like they did after Weed. But by no means was this an easy choice you can tell that George was troubled when asked how he killed Lennie…“ ‘I just done it,’ George said tiredly” (Steinbeck p.107). The first and most prominent reason that George shot Lennie him self was the fact that George would not have been able to live with himself if he had not done it. The thing that you have to understand about Lennie is that he has a mental disability.

Activity 1 Derrick Bird committed Mass Murder through Cumbria on 2nd June 2010. From the evidence it seems as if the reason for this spree was money related, his father had recently deceased and he wanted everything in his will killing his brother and his lawyer. He was also going through a tax investigation at the time. His motive seems to be personal at first mixed with financial and then turns into a mental disturbance as he kills those at random. His first 3 victims experienced high levels of risk as he specifically targeted them and the rest were of low risk as they had not done wrong or even know Bird.
The road mender says, “ Tall as a spectre” that quote gave away Gaspard’s life. The road mender thought he was doing a good thing but giving out a generalization, but the Marquis knew who it was.

He presented himself so that I empathized with the main character and his struggle to find the truth, answers, help the other patients, and escape off the island. In the beginning, I was just as suspicious as the main character, which was convinced that he was being drugged to be experimented on. It was not until the very end of the movie through the explanation of Doctor Cawley that the audience and I realized the main character was actually a patient there because of his severe case of PTSD, which is also known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, this is a serious condition that can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic or terrifying event in which serious physical harm occurred or was threatened. The PTSD is what triggered his Dissociative Identity Disorder, which is the existence in one individual of two or more distinct personality states that each have its own patterns of perceiving, relating and thinking of environment. Andrew Latus (Leonardo DiCaprio) was in the army during the time of World War 11 during which time he had to endure millions of deaths and traumas.
He was scared of the thought of death but then executed many others. He was a selfish and unfair human being who did not care about others. His plans could have been achieved in a much nicer way. He did not gain anyone’s trust during his time. He made people suffer instead of helping them get through the war.
Lester’s new behaviour and attitude towards the Behrani family is unforeseen, as at first he seemed like a very caring person who wanted to help as much as he could, but as his hatred towards the family increases, his change in morality does too. It seems as if all the things that he once cherished, have vanished because of his overwhelming and negative emotion. Additionally, Lester’s behaviour only gets worse when he thinks about killing the Behrani family. While keeping the family hostage Lester, “waved his gun in their direction and told them to keep quiet”(263).At this point in the novel Lester is a completely different man, instead of trying to protect others, he feels the need to destroy them. This all originated from his hatred toward the family giving a hard time to Kathy.
The people that Shelton killed are considered combatants because they support they governmental system and work with it. Based on Just War Theory, the proportionality of killing these people is that their deaths are outweighed by the justice that will bring to the judicial system. Shelton believes the system to be corrupt, focusing instead on conviction rates rather than making sure the right person is placed behind bars. By killing these people Shelton can put a new mindset into the “system” because those affected by the killings will want the right man punished rather since they now know how it feels to be wronged.

Bateman kills people for his own satisfaction, the nameless narrator does it because of his urge to get rid of an eye. Similarities Patrick Bateman and the nameless narrator both feel the judgement or "the eye" of the antagonist.
