This book encourages me even more to pursue my dream of becoming a Police Officer. This tragedy also made clear that we shouldn’t trust anyone, because even the most inoffensive individual could be a psychopath. However, I consider that the family went through a great deal of pain. I can’t visualize my brother, any relative or even people close to me of being a murderer. I can’t imagine the pain Ted’s mother experienced, knowing that his model son was sentenced to death after being convicted of
Student Professor English 305 6 November 2009 I Say No To Hate Crime Laws Hate crimes are an irrational, ignorant and cowardly expression of desperation. A person who commits a hate crime is desperate to feel better, superior and in control. That being said, there should not be special laws and mandatory sentences for people who commit these heinous acts of violence because they do not accomplish the goals of eradicating or deterring bigotry. If we, as a society, put special laws and punishments into our legal system, we are unequivocally saying that the motive of these acts is more important than the intent or outcome of these crimes. I do not believe this is true nor do I feel that this is the position of the majority of people in
There are many reasons I don’t believe in the death penalty. For one thing, I don’t believe it helps the survivors, who grieve. Executions in my view focus more on revenge then anything and doest even focus on healing. If anything it makes another family go through what the victim’s family went though. Why would anyone willingly want to do that to another person?
OJ had written a book called "If I did It" Where he lays out how he would have committed the murder. Why would anyone even want to write a book about the crime if you really had nothing to do with it? Simpson is protected by double jeopardy, he can't be put on trial for the crime again. He pretty much confessed everything about the crime in the book, but the cops can’t do anything about it now. The problem that made the prosecution lose the case was the fact that the police mismanaged the evidence and made the jury have enough doubt not to convict OJ
In the aftermath of the tragedy at Jonestown, the phrase "drink the Kool-Aid" became a popular expression for blind obedience, as the Temple members had apparently accepted cups of devilish fruity poison keenly. The people of America are not “drinking the Kool-Aid” that the Jonestown people did. They are knowledgeable and will not blindly jump on the “bandwagon’ that others may follow. Though, there are not any laws that can protect citizens from creating a cult or from joining one, the massacre was a lesson. Americans are now aware of the dangers of joining a group or an organization without full knowledge.
I wanted to show that even though they tried to help they feel like they failed trying to help. The deaths of the innocent will continue, because no one is truly listening to what people are saying, and the sad part is that most people know what happens, however fear is what holds people back from justice. Fear is what keeps people from helping their peers, from helping themselves. The government cover up doesn’t help the people but instead ends up harming people, when they ask for the help. I wanted to portray the fact that people end up getting hurt if they try to
There should be no exception to the rule! If it is wrong for one person to kill another, then why is it justifiable for innocent men, women, and children to die at the hand of our government because the president of this country says it is the right thing to do? Many nations, including our own, have won their independence in battle, but these victories are only temporary (ML King Jr., 2003). Violence can never bring permanent peace or solve any social problems; it only creates new and more complicated ones (ML King Jr., 2003). .
Now imagine an army of criminals with assault rifles versus a police force with no weapons at all. This nation will fall into anarchy over night. Anyways the government can never take away our guns, its just not cost effective, and a majority of people would find a way to hide them
Capital punishment does not deter crime; instead it increases the murder rate and there is a chance of error. Therefore, capital punishment should not exist in today’s society because it is an unconstitutional punishment. Capital punishment it’s not necessary and it is also unfair. There is a chance of error, you can execute the wrong person and later on find them innocent. Even though some may argue that death penalty deters crime, studies have shown that it does not.
Sparing the innocent victims who would be spared, ex hypothesi, by the nonexecution of murderers would be more important to me than the execution, however just, of murderers. But although there is a lively discussion of the subject, no serious evidence exists to support the hypothesis that executions produce a higher murder rate. Cf. Phillips, The Deterrent Effect of Capital Punishment: New Evidence on an Old Controversy, 86 AM. J. SOC.
