Daniel felt guilt and remorse while he was in jail and It was just a mistake that couldn’t be undone. A longer sentence wouldn’t bring back the lives of the dead. Longer jail sentence wouldn’t have achieved justice. The town of Mumbilli had lost the two loved teenagers while one was in serious condition. The Brennan’s were a well-respected family in the town but the action of Daniel left the feeling of hatred for the family.” The town of Mumbilli was bleeding.” The town was extremely affected by the accident.
This case led to the questioning of whether the legal system is effective for the individual and the community and whether it really brought justice to the victims of crime. A large proportion of society feel let down by the legal system, as a mechanism put into place to protect and bring justice has obviously failed in this case. The fact that serious sex offenders who place a black mark on the well being of victims, both physically and mentally being let off in less than 20 years caused a lot of conroversy. Although it may be argued that 55 years was a harsh penalty and didn’t warrant the crime, the victim’s of the crime received a much harsher sentence, a life of trauma and a constant feeling of alarm. Denele Crozier a Women's Health NSW executive officer asked the question many women had asked after the appeal was established ``How many times do women have to be constantly let down and disappointed by the legal
The reason why he has these trust issues is probably because he was taken advantage of in the past, and does not want it to happen again. Sonny probably feels like if he lets anyone get too close to him and he confides too much in someone than he will lose control, and the other members of his gang will no longer listen and respect him. In the course of the movie Sonny only looks out for himself and sometimes Cologero. For example, after Sonny accused Cologero of putting something dangerous on his car, he told him to get out of his reckless friends car and get in his car. Even though it did not seem like it, this was Sonny’s way of apologizing to Cologero for flipping out earlier in the film.
Pitt’s character also reveals that a society that attempts to repress homosexuality is harmful to both itself and the community of homosexuals. Had Joe been at ease with his sexuality, he would not have married Harper and she would in turn be spared the many years of torture. Perhaps they would have become good allies or even great ones at that. But pressure from society forced them into a torturous life of abjuration (Galens et al., 197). Harper Amaty Pitt starts off as Joe’s valium-addicted, sociopathic wife.
More than anything, for many of us, it is exhausting. Exhausting because nothing could bring back our lost child, exhausting because the verdict, which should have felt shocking, arrived with the inevitability that black Americans know too well when criminal law announces that they are worth less than other Americans. Every step Mr. Martin took toward the end of his too-short life was defined by his race. I do not have to believe that Mr. Zimmerman is a hate-filled racist to recognize that he would probably not even have noticed Mr. Martin if he had been a casually dressed white teenager. References Yankah, E. W. (2013, July 16).
The Pilgrimage of grace failed for many reasons, however, I think it failed mainly due to poor leadership. This is because Robert Aske accepted the King’s pardon at the River Don and trusted that Henry was going to discuss their grievances in court. When they accepted the pardon they dispersed back to their homes, which meant that when Henry didn’t do anything about their grievances then it would be difficult for all the rebels to regroup. The rebellion was regionalised to the North of the country and was too far away from London go back after just coming back. M.L Bush said that ‘It was interconnected regional rebellions rather than one fluid movement’ because once the rebels had gone back to where they lived dotted across the North of England they would all have to meet up rather than go down to London in one group.
As soon as Moran’s men came inside to pick up the alcohol, Al’s men, dressed as police arrested them. Then the police imposters shot down all seven of Moran’s men. Moran ran away unharmed. Dr. Fredrick L. Hoffman, a researcher of U.S. crime stated how corrupt the U.S. was by saying “ Our murder record of approximately 12,000 persons each year is a most serious indictment of American civilization, and evidence of lawlessness which has no counterpart in any other country in the world” (Scott). Capone and many other gangs terrorized cities with the fear of getting caught in the middle of a shootout (Yancey
In today’s society people are quick to judge and ridicule a persons morals and ethics. There’s many debates on what is considered to be right and wrong for society. Dale Coventry and Jamie Kunz where two attorneys who both faced the agony of holding a great life altering moral secret for 26 years that today is a great source of controversy. Both attorneys knew of a man by the name of Alton Logan who was innocent before he even faced trail but neither attorney could speak up and help to save this innocent man from being imprisoned. If the two would have come forward they would have violated there professional obligations to their client.
His sense of pride prevented him from admitting to the adultery. Thus, the town did not understand Abigail’s motivation as did Proctor. He could have also prevented his demise if he had chosen to sign the paper. However, he feels that his name is “not worth the dust on the feet of them that hang” and chooses death over humility. This play exhibits tragedy because, though Proctor had many opportunities to change his fate, he chooses his demise because his tragic flaw prohibits him from doing otherwise.
“But the Duvitches were marked people.” (3) This prevented them to do what they wished peacefully because where ever they went they would be harassed by the town folk. And that harassment helps to prevent them from feeling free. Moving into a new country is tough, but moving to a place where the community doesn’t accept you is much harder. Even though you are technically free, you can never be free unless you are accepted by the community you move to. This is shown in the short story The Strangers That Came to Town by Ambrose Flack.
