Case Study: Robert Hansen History and the Crime Robert Hansen was born February 15, 1939 in Estherville, Iowa.

Once I recognize these strengths I can achieve success not only in college, but in my overall life. My top five themes in my Strengths Quest Insight Review came out to be Restorative, Includer, Consistency, Futuristic, and Achiever.

In the film Stand by Me, the quest to see a dead body leads a group of four friends on a two day adventure. Gordie, Vern, and Teddy are struggling with the transition from grade school to junior high in summer of 1959. However, Chris Chambers has already had to face one of the toughest parts of growing up: breaking out of stereotypes. The Chambers family members are known to be troublemakers to everyone in town. Gordie’s father refers to an incident where Chris stole some money at the school, and says of Chris that “he's a thief in my book.” Over the course of the film, Chris acts as a protector and leader to the rest of the group, seemingly out of character for a poor kid from a no-account family.

Christopher is a character who became a victim of Josiah Bont’s Greed as Josiah attempted to pre-bury him in order to steal Christopher’s valuable belongings. But unfortunately for Josiah he was too lazy and greedy to make sure that Christopher was actually fully covered in his grave, so he awoke from his grave and went preaching to the townspeople accusing Josiah of being a “spawn of Satan” for what he had done.

The Case of the Spelunkers: Murder in a "Cave Cathedral" Murder is the most heinous of human acts, and unless it is committed in true self defense can never be justified. During a weekend spelunking trip, four close male friends become perilously trapped within a "Cave Cathedral" with little food and limited water. After just a week passes with no rescue one of the men suggests the macabre idea of drawing straws to determine who will be "sacrificed" for food so that the remaining three men can improve their chances for rescue. A critical wrinkle occurs when one of the men, Paul, chooses to remove himself from the process and tells the others to leave him out of it. Unfortunately, the other three keep a straw in the game for Paul which ends up being the fateful short straw and Paul is murdered and eaten in spite of his protest.

The police arrested him for stealing a pair of very important shoes that had belonged to Clyde Livingston. Bad luck? Or a curse from his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather Stanley Yelnats I? “His muscles and hands weren’t the only parts of his body that had hardened over the past several weeks. His heart had hardened as well.” Stanley was not the skinniest of all boys and digging all day in the excruciating heat would have been tough for poor Stanley.
Ponyboy remembers Bob saying this not even a week before. Both boys are victims of the violence between the Socs and the Greasers, and die before the story is over. They both have violent tendencies, look for fights, and end up losing their lives because of it; more important, both draw ideological lines in the sand. The Outsiders ends with its own opening sentence, as Ponyboy begins to write his assignment for English class, and it becomes clear that the story the reader has just finished is the assignment itself. It is inspired by Johnny's letter to Ponyboy, in which he explains what he meant by his last words: "Stay gold."
