She even feels she a connection with Ted Bundy because she could have seen herself as a potential victim of Ted. What she meant by using these statements is that she tries to show that she knows exactly what the horrific things Ted Bundy did to his victims and even then still makes the statement “He and the death penalty seemed made for each other”, but
In "Are Families Dangerous?" Barbara Ehrenreich discusses how "media fixations" are recently allowing us to see the true grime that is our ideal family system. Ehrenreich's main contention is that families "can be a nest of pathology and a cradle of gruesome violence." She states that somewhere inside us, whether or not we want to believe; we know that this is going on around us, and media representations are outing the evils of family life. Implying that families might not be the shiny, happy role-players that we all would like to think of, she speaks of the unthinkable, gruesome crimes to the weak, and infirm, of these so-called families.
Retribution is one of the main aims of punishment. Retribution means suffering from the punishment to balance out the evil deed that had been done. (www.dictionary.com) Most people would agree that if a terrible crime has been committed then a horrible punishment must be delivered back. The punishment must match the crime done. But should this be the way?

Now I will begin with talking about my topic the Death Penalty and how it has such a big demand on it. As anyone who knows about the Death Penalty knows that is a very touchy subject.

Conor Richardson English A1 HL Cardinal Newman Assignment 2c: Key Passage Role of Religion in Chronicle of a Death Foretold The assignment is based on the following extract: Chronicle of a Death Foretold (translated by Gregory Rabassa) Vintage Books, New York. Page 8, beginning with the words “On the day they were going to kill him…” and ending with “It was the last time she saw him.” In Chronicle of a Death Foretold5, a 1982 novel by Gabriel García Márquez, a murder takes place in a Colombian village over a matter of honor. Honor is a deeply rooted concept in Latin American culture, which motivated the author to include it in his work. The novel uses an unnamed narrator who is trying to piece together the facts of the story 27 years later. The town also claims to be very religious, a major aspect of the villagers’ lives that should have the highest priority above everything else.
Lucy is potentially liable for gross negligent manslaughter where Chris has died. Adomako reaffirms 4 requirements where a defendant is liable for gross negligence manslaughter. 1) Where the defendant owes the victim a duty of care, 2) where they have breached the duty of care, 3) such breach has caused death of the victim and finally 4) the negligence must be ‘gross’. Lucy is “overseeing” the project, which implies she has a supervisory/managerial role over Chris and owes him duty of care as employer. The prosecution must then prove that Lucy breached such duty.
In this paper, I will discuss the effect that capital punishment has on deterring criminal activity. Capital punishment is the execution of criminals by the state, for committing crimes, regarded so terrible, that this type of punishment is the only acceptable punishment for the crime committers. For decades now, there has been an ongoing debate over the death penalty in America. The chief argument in favor of death sentences is the fact that it can be used as a deterrent. Deterrence is the idea that executing the murderers will decrease the rates of homicide by discouraging future murderers.
However the question that will arise is that, did the accused really kill the relative of the accuser or because the accused practiced sorcery or was just a suspicion that he or she is the killer? After all it all comes back to our cultures and tradition, the environment in which we were brought up, how we think and our education. The write up is about taking the above two incidents as an ethical issue. If considered as an ethical issue, should the belief in sorcery be recognized as authentic and given legal recognition ? Should those who believe in sorcery powers be allowed to take law into their own hands and kill their suspect themselves or let the law deal with them?
