He is the reason why top football players in the US want to go to Penn State. His reputation is impeccable as a teacher, role model, coach and mentor. Did he make a mistake? Did he try to protect Penn State's reputation and his football program (that brings in millions of dollars for the university) at the expense of helpless children? It is difficult to say at this point.
The hospital victim survived the violent attack, but Stroud was given an additional six month sentence and was sent Leavenworth for outrageous violent actions. But that didn’t stop his criminal mind from creating more violence. When Stroud turned twenty two he was already known as a disciplinary problem in Leavenworth. He was written up for miscellaneous violations, and spent time in isolation for holding multiple weapons on his well being. But in March of 1916 Stroud would commit a crime while in prison that would forever deprive him the right to walk a free.
The crimes committed by Jerry Sandusky can never be undone. The NCAA did the right thing by showing that the safety of children is more important than the millions of dollars brought in the D1 football. Nevertheless; it is unfair that 13 years of Penn State football players are being punished for the wrong-doings of coaches paid to protect them. The victories and records set by the student athletes were earned on the field. But people should never forget who the true victims are in this case.
Then at the trial things do not go as planned and against all evidence against it, Tom is convicted because,"Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men's hearts Atticus had no case..” (Lee 244). This really shows Jem how unfair people are and how they will do whatever to make sure they are not looked at wrongly in other’s eyes. This point in the novel is the main transition in Jem’s life where he realizes how cruel some people can be. Jem’s behavior towards others judgements against his father’s case resulted in him having to read to Mrs. Dubose, an angry, elderly neighbor. Jem
Abuse & Mandated Reporting The case of Jerry Sandusky brought to the public eye the issue of child abuse and various authority figures’ responsibilities of reporting such suspected abuse. Back in 2011, Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, 68, was accused and convicted on 45 out of 48 counts related to sexually abusing young boys over the course of two decades; he was sentenced to life in prison (Wertheim 2012). Not only were Sandusky’s actions illegal (among other less appropriate adjectives that I might add) but also illegal were the actions, or lack thereof, of Gary Shultz, the Penn State senior vice president for finance and business, and Tim Curley, the Penn State athletic director. They knew details and has witnessed some of the allegations against Sandusky yet failed to report to the proper authorities; thus they were charged with perjury, as required by state law (Viera, 2012). Most people do not realize that failure to report child abuse is just as bad, and sometimes even worse than child abuse itself.
SHOULD JUVENILES BE CHARGED AS ADULTS IN CRIMINAL CASES TRINA LEVESQUE POST UNIVERSITY Abstract In 1984 in Butte Mt, two boys (boys simply because of their age) Michael Horvath age 15 and Ted Gibson age 14, committed some unspeakable acts. Michael and Ted had brutally taken the lives of their mothers as well as the life of Ted’s 16 year old sister. These two were sentenced to a juvenile detention facility until the age of 21, after which their juvenile records were sealed and they were able to go on with their lives as if it never happened. I feel that justice was not served for the victims. After this heinous act the laws of MT were swiftly changed to charge juveniles as adults if they commit an adult crime.

Therefore when man is not as successful as others, an inferiority complex is developed. Max always bragged about his first-born son, Lennie, because he was considered a success. This is illustrated when Max told his friends that his son Lennie had scholarships all through school (Richler 23). Max used the opportunities he had to brag about Lennie whom he considered smart and successful because he had scholarships and was attending a medical school rather than his second-born son, Duddy, who was a dope like him. Max bragged about Lennie because he wanted his society to consider him a success.
Why he can make it because lots of investors lack financial knowledge. Also they won’t doubt about what the investment is as long as Madoff can make money for them. People didn’t know what is going on until Madoff can’t find any new investor to throw money in his schemes. After that, his schemes collapsed. In March 2009, Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 federal felonies and admitted to turning his wealth management business into a massive Ponzi scheme but he never indicated the involvement of any other company employees or his family members.
He always feels guilty because of his violent birth, in which his mother died. This reality makes him always feel miserable about his past. On the other hand, he acts like an arrogant "Pashtun" in most of his behaviour with Hassan, and puts himself in a higher rank of ethnic groups, in comparison to "Hazzaras", whom have no voice in society. After all, these issues make huge contrasting decisions for Amir, however the reader should judge him regardless to these ways of thinking, because of Amir's particular situation. How would you describe the relationship between: Baba and Ali: Baba’s father was a judge who had adopted the orpahan Ali (Hassan's father) and raised the boy along with his own son (Baba).
