He was quick to suppress any revolts and his punishments were almost always harsh to show that he was not to be betrayed. His sentences for those who betrayed him in the Streltsy Rebellion were brutal. Peter sentenced thousands for execution and used torture as a way of inflicting pain on those who had dishonored him, not only as a means to acquire a confession. His cruel ways were also shown when he brought his own sister Sophia under questioning and confined her permanently to a convent, held under watch of a hundred guards and allowed no visitors.  Peter's frequent travels left Russia unmanned, often for months at a time.
It is evident that Grendel meets all the requirements of a villain. He had powers that were beyond human, he was a character that “looked” the part, and he killed ruthlessly without feeling any guilt. The villain of every story is just as important as the hero; often, the villain is more vital to the success of the story. Although people may not admit it, there is a certain intrigue in finding out what evils lurk in the night. Grendel will be a villain that will haunt our thoughts
There is a long monologue of Macbeth: “… He's here in double trust; First, as I am his kinsman and his subject, Strong both against the deed; then, as his host, Who should against his murderer shut the door, Not bear the knife myself….” —1.7.15-19 Here, Macbeth tells us the double trust of Duncan. From Macbeth’s words, it is easy to find that he is the last possible person to murder Duncan. Therefore, theoretically Duncan is very safe in Macbeth’s castle. But the irony is that the safest place becomes the most dangerous one. Duncan’s trust on Macbeth gives Macbeth the chance to carry out the murder.
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.
Covey has a great forte of deceiving people which makes the slaves believe he is always around keeping a watchful eye on them. His power to deceive is so great that the salves give him the name, “the snake.” The harsh treatment he has for the slaves also gives him the reputation of “nigger-breaker” and it is of great importance to Mr. Covey.

In this case, it has an effect on everyone in the scene, because deep down, the men understand Captain Miller not only as their captain, but as a good friend. They can relate to his pain because they have all been there too.
The prisoners did wrong things, so they are already being punished, as Buchanan’s second conclusion, “That those really responsible for the abuse, on a deeper and more systematic level, still should be brought to justice.” The guards’ responsibility is to take care of the prison, not to misbehave with the prisoners. As a result, if prisoners were punished for their bad deeds, then of course the guards should be punished, too, for abusing the prisoner, because it wasn’t their right to treat them badly. If a guard hadn’t interfered in the prisoner’s life, then the good people have never turned into bad, and this world would have been better. Human nature is like when everyone acts nice to each other, then they are nice; and when someone tries to hurt one’s feelings or ego, then everyone turns to violent behavior. That’s where crime begins.
Baca was put in a lot of situations where being a man was either to make or break him. He would show off just to be noticed and being noticed is what happened. In one situation, Baca writes “The only way I seemed to impress them was by my fighting” (page #); he was like a hero in Theresa and her friend’s eyes. If he backed out his friends wouldn’t respect it and fighting was the majority is his life through out the memoir. Baca later states, while being in jail, “All the fights I’d won to prove I was a man didn’t matter; nothing mattered expect what I was going to do now.
