The title was forced upon me through a rigorous legal process, which in the end I let myself loose. Even though the thought of raising my niece by myself makes me want to vomit, I could never give her to a stranger. My sister, even though she is the criminal that she is, would never want that. And at the end of the day, she is still my sister, and Julia is still my blood. Angela, my sister, committed murder.
However impartial it is, the scene of Wuronos getting violently raped in the front seat of a car is by far the most harrowing. In fact the other murders in this movie (the ones she committed) are significantly less graphic or not shown at all. Although I am completely aware that this may have been more of a cinematic gusto rather than an accurate account, it did stir emotions. I was left in the theater shocked that this woman was sentenced to death for what she had done after seeing what was done to her. Monster is a fantastic film.

She also cites facts, while maintaining an emotion, by mentioning George Sodini, who specifically targeted women in his shooting “killing three women and injuring nine others." This intends to bring out the moral woe within the reader. One of the strongest of Valenti’s uses of emotional tone is when she states that the leading cause of death for women who are pregnant are murdered by their partner. It is almost unthinkable: with so much emphasis in America on the sanctity of life, whether or not to allow abortion or the morality of stem cell research; the fact that “the
Mr. Zannata March 30, 2012 Battered Woman’s Syndrome: Homolka's Excuse Karla Homolka was the wife and accomplice of the infamous serial rapist and killer, Paul Bernardo. Homolka used the battered women's syndrome as a legal defense for her actions, but there is an abundance of evidence to prove that she lied and used the disorder as an excuse to lessen her sentence. Learned helplessness is used to describe a phycologic response of a person to the repeated unpredictable exposure to a painful stimuli. This may have been the case with Homolka, yet, as stated on a women's advocacy site, out of the group of women who are diagnosed with 'learned helplessness', only a very small percentage commit acts of murder or sexual assault. Therefore this disorder does not give Homolka an excuse for her crimes.
Rusty only agreed with certain things Woroniecki believed. However Woroniecki had a major influence on Andrea, she was capatovated by his ideas. He preached bad mothers who go to hell and raise children who will go to hell too. Those words resonated with Andrea. At the time she killed her children, she believed she was possessed and that the sign of Satan was marked on her scalp.
Asked if she knew what it meant to kill someone, Weier purportedly responded, “I believe it’s ending a life and I regret it.” She also reportedly told the police, “The bad part of me wanted her to die, the good part of me wanted her to live.” Geyser reportedly stated that what she did was probably wrong. Both girls believed so much in the fictional character they thought that killing their classmate would show their devotion. Many people in court asked for mental tests to be done on both girls, since they haven’t done anything wrong before, the presence of a mental issue is possible. Geyser's attorney fought for the case to be fought in juvenile court. Though their brains are still developing they are still held liable for their actions.

The Crucibles The crucibles is like desperation, lies, and hopelessness. Arthur Miller uses Rebecca Nurse to shows us that she is the clear martyr in the play, the most pure and saintly character hanged for witchery. Rebecca Nurse in the Crucibles uses integrity has always been scarce in society. In today’s world and as shown in The Crucible, honesty is unappreciated and the truthful are punished. While this brings fear to all of Salem, one character stands by her beliefs until the death.
In the other hand Medea’s evil part takes control in almost all the play since Jason left her and betrayed her, she became totaly crazy and irrational in the search of revenge. Her anger was so strong that she would do everything to make Jason suffer in the worst way posible. Medea first killed Creons daughter wich Jason had left Medea for and then she killed her own children as Jason loved them and wanted to take care of them. She did this just with the simple excuse that it was better for them to die bye her hand than with a less loving hand. Medea’s ambiguity is really important for the play as this is what makes the story happen.
