He says “gurgled and gasped for air as the cyanide gas choked the life from him” The reporter has used strong emotive language to emphasize the pain harris went through. In the article the reporter clearly wants to make the reader feel like Harris was killed in the worst way possible. The writer states “If you asked me i’d say that was not a clean humane way to die “ this makes the reader feel like it was a horrible way to die and he wouldn’t report on it again. In the article I see a killer die the reporter wanted us to be in favour of Harris when he wrote “We had heard he had broken down and cried to a guard shortly before he was tied to the chair with leather straps” This makes the reader feel as if Harris was remorseful towards the victims families.

The narrator says, “I lunge forward aiming at his stomach. It is a lightening, instinctive move…I become insane…I want to strike again and again.”(Harrison, 26-27) Since this was an “instinctive” move, he didn’t even think over the fact that he is taking someone’s life nor have any humane feelings which prove that he has become inhumane towards a person’s life. In addition, a humane individual would experience feelings of regret and guilt, but instead he has the urge to stab him continuously. He becomes one of the negative byproducts of the war because it causes him to become “insane” and inconsiderate towards the sentimental values associated with death.
Set in the Vietnam War, it begins with a focus on the training of a platoon of U.S. marines and continues to follow the service of Private Joker in his experiences in Vietnam as he goes about his service. Full Metal Jacket is a well paced film that studies the violence of war, portraying the physical as well as the mental dangers in a hyper realistic way.

These are two demonstrations against war, revealing the subject in an ironic and undeniably negative light.
Through this detailed description, Gurganus adds to his argument, making the war sound even more horrific. He is trying to get people to see his perspective, and to make all the glory of war seem meaningless. We send these men over to live in terrible conditions and they don’t even know why they are there

Mrs. Ratched to a near death state. His anger drove him to physical action and therefore was punished by being lobotomized.

Even though he was alive, his friend, the “Chief”, did not want to see him in the state that he was in and decided to euthanize him.
Her death caused much commotion to all the people who new her; the closer they were to her, the more they suffered. This is why the murder of Cassetti is looked at as justifiable. In Christie’s book many passengers denounced Cassetti, ”If ever a man deserved what he got, Ratchett or Cassetti is the man. I'm rejoiced at his end. Such a man wasn't fit to live!” and "I did so rejoice that that evil man was dead – that he could not any more kill or torture little children.
The first thing this text reminds me of is the Virginia Tech school shootings. Obviously the shooter was a man who was fed up with being treated poorly by everyone around him and decided to get his revenge on the world. Of course, the obvious difference here is that he killed everyone he could see, whereas Mr. Turner focused on people who made a living off being rude. But it makes you think, maybe if so many people weren’t so rude on a day-to-day basis then maybe we wouldn’t have so many problems. In conclusion I would say the For All the Rude People has a good message in it, and that is simply, don’t be so rude.

All they end up doing though is becoming another casualty, another statistic, dying in a war that had no real reason. The only thing those soldiers ended up doing was proving that war truly is futile. What about the families of those dead soldiers? Are they comforted by the fact that their family members are incredibly brave? No, they are not, all they know is that their son or brother is gone, and the only reason for their loss, is a war which is completely futile, a pointless war which destroyed an entire generation.
