The argument is against those who committed theses crimes, they knew what they were doing was wrong and instead they continued to break the law. It does not support my position nor does it negate from it. I believe that these primary sources were not that reliable because they were just court case files. I think that no
Criminal behavior would all be situational are we assuming that I’m a law abiding normal citizen or what. If this is pertaining to the me here and now then these factors are kind of pointless to make most of them minus the drug issue. Then again what types of criminal behavior are we talking is it j-walking shoplifting grand theft auto or anything like these. Honesty and dishonesty are always factors in self-report studies simply because when someone lies or is dishonest on a self-report study they then jeopardies the whole study there is no real way to tell if someone is telling the truth on a study or just simply filling in the blanks the way they think that someone would like them filled
The results showed that those who saw the violent version were less accurate in recalling information about the crime. This links back o Yerkes Dodson Law as it says that the more anxious you are, the less you are able to recall. The disadvantages of Loftus and Loftus and Burns are that they aren’t methodologically valid as it was a lab experiment and not a real life situation; also it wasn’t ethically valid as they were making people upset and deceiving people. Although there is research evidence to back up the Yerkes Dodson Law, there is also research evidence going against it. Yuille and Cutshall wanted to investigate eyewitness testimony in a real life setting.
Aside from the “smoking gun”, nothing carries as much weight with a jury than the testimony of an actual witness. However, how accurate is the actual account of the crime as said by that witness? The human memory is far from being perfect and, let’s face it, forgetfulness is a fact of life. One of the most obvious reasons for forgetfulness is the nature of the human memory itself. Even the most basic, everyday items often fail to be encoded into our memory.
Even though there is statistical data available from statistical surveys we are still stuck with stereotypical conclusions and misconceptions about men who rape. Part of the reason is because behavioral scientists have not studied such individuals. Rapists are not known to self-refer themselves to clinics, hospitals, or private services. Also, those who are identified to the result of imprisonment and conviction either do not appreciate that their behavior is inappropriate or fear that revealing their concerns to someone will lead to them being locked up in prison or a mental hospital. Because of the absence of such knowledge of the offender, the nature of their behavior is misconstrued and misinterpreted.
Even though he witnessed many horrible things, he could not believe in his Father’s true work. He died because he was not aware of what was happening in the concentration camps. (Boyne, page 213) it states, “He assumed that it had something to do with keeping the rain out and stopping people from catching colds.” This shows that Bruno had no idea that he was taken to a gas chamber. Standing in the big room, in between skinny, shaved head men, he was more concerned on catching cold than the vision in front of him. Another example of how Bruno was avoiding thinking about what was happening around him was when he said, “I expect we’ll have to wait here till it eases off and then I’ll get to go home” (Boyne, page 212).
When most people think of psychopaths, they think—with a shudder—of serial killers like Ted Bundy, who seem to show no remorse or even understanding that what they do is morally wrong. Psychopathy —also called sociopathy—is indeed defined by lack of empathy, callousness and complete disregard for anything or anyone else other than one's selfish needs. But although all psychopaths meet the criteria for what the diagnostic manual calls "antisocial personality disorder"—of which psychopathy is the most extreme case—not all of them are ruthless murderers. "People don't realize that there are hundreds of sociopaths walking around [who] aren't criminals," says child psychiatrist Bruce Perry, M.D., Ph.D. "They end up manipulating people to get
He’s coming this way” (93). The deeper meaning of this quotation symbolizes that prejudice is on its way, but the citizens of Maycomb are oblivious to it. The reason that prejudice is on its way is because of the trial; the jury convicted Tom Robinson of raping Mayella Ewell, even though there was not even enough evidence for the case to go on trial, and Atticus proved that Mayella could not have been hurt by Mr. Robinson. This is portrayed through the dog because he is making his way towards them; slowly but is still very dangerous. The quote also shows that the citizens are oblivious to prejudice because no one in town notices that there is a mad dog, except for Jem and Scout.
Jean Val Jean had to conceal his identity in order to help people. “To save from punishment perhaps a little to severe...must an entire country be let go to ruin” (Hugo 92). Once at a noble position, if Jean Val Jean revealed himself as a convict he would surely be punished. Another character that is degraded by society is Champmathieu. Champmathieu is arrested for a crime that he did not commit.
The degree of harm that could have happened to the company was not justified because when a search was made in an Internet search and the blog was not easily accessible in the public domain and this does not give the employer the just cause for termination of the employee. In case two, the manufacturer was encoding its ink cartridges so that they could not be sold in other regions. This demonstrates that the manufacturer did not apply the principles of utilitarianism in making the decision of coding their ink cartridges. We believe that this decision was unethical because this limits the customer on where they could shop for their ink cartridges and coerces the customer to spend more because of the region that they live in. This case is of high moral intensity because of this restriction.
