He carjacked a truck at a gas station, police said, then executed a businessman and stole his BMW. A few minutes later, he killed a plumber and took a work truck. He shot indiscriminately at morning commuters on the 55 Freeway, hitting at least three cars. In the end, authorities say the gunman killed three people and wounded three others before fatally turning his gun on himself. Authorities were stunned by what they described as the "senseless violence," which spanned about 25 miles of normally placid suburbia.
However they are wrong because, psychological torture is likely to leave permanent brain damage. Torturers may also think that valuable information could be collected using waterboarding, which some believe to not be harmful. Yet tortures such as waterboarding, which are painful to the point of death are not ‘safe’. Bloodlust, or the need for revenge may also be a reason for torturing, but by doing so we are stooping to their low level and crushing our values as a country. “An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind” Said Mahatma Gandhi.
that the man on the receiving end of the slap called authorities at around 1:30 p.m. to report that he had been beaten up by Gene Hackman. “Officers who responded were able to talk to both the caller and Hackman, who was still in the area after eating at a nearby restaurant.” “The Unforgiven star told police that the man approached him and Betsy in a very aggressive manner, called his wife a nasty name (TMZ hears it was the C-word) and otherwise made them fear for their saftey.” The man got into his face, according to Hackman, and he hit him, "more like a slap than a punch," Dobyns said. Hackman seems to have recovered his strength since being hit by a car while riding his bike. The guy had no visible injuries and no one was arrested or cited for the altercation. "It looked like Mr. Hackman did this purely out of self-defense to protect himself and his wife," said Dobyns.” —Reporting by Holly Passalaqua Source: Finn, N (2012).

After that, Milo and Teddy get into an argument about Teddys father being a loony. Teddy is very defensive and they go back and forth about it. “your mother blows dead rats!, and if you call my dad a loony again, I’ll fucking kill you, you cocksucker!” (King 344). This line and the whole scene are in the film as well. The only difference is that the dog in the book was a mongrel dog and in the film it was a golden retriever.
As Cyrus’ family searches for him he comes running out and jumps from the tier and kills himself. Two of the gang members start to collect money and set half of a row on fire, anybody who had water used the last of the last of it to put it out. One of the gang members starts a fight a preacher and almost cracks his skull open. The next day Katrina finally stops, but that didn’t mean they were free to go. All of the people who were in the Superdome had to go into a barricaded fence area where the conditions were just as bad.
For example, the 'bad boy" type of guy would for example be in an argument with a girl, thus being the douchebag the guy is, ends up making a girl cry or simply just upsetting her. But in doing so, the guy can simply set up and apology, (which is something that a bad boys do not possess usually when you think about them) thus making them actually appear to be a more sensitive guy. In other words, you were mean to her, therefore you upset her; because you upset her before, you later sets up an apology, making you look more of a nice guy from the sudden leap of the bad guy you were, making you actually a sensitive guy who can actually still be a stuck up bad boy. On the other hand, if a girl always knew you were a nice, sensitive, caring guy, and one day upon a blue moon, you simply slip your mouth and accidently
Week 6 Check Point: Mind Over Matter By Mary Setzer The difference between mental illness and insanity is that insanity is a more severe form of mental illness where a person fails to realize what is real and what is fantasy. The M'Naghten rule can't be used to defend the actions of someone who drinks alcohol because drinking is a voluntary act. Had the person not had alcohol, they would not have committed a crime. If someone receives a rational and guilty verdict after committing a crime, it means that the person convicted knew what they were doing and aware of the consequences. A guilty but insane verdict means that the person convicted was insane to have killed someone (for example) but realizes what they have done is wrong.
I feel that torture is inhumane, and it should not be practiced as a punishment for a crime. However, if a terrorist has chosen to do something horrible where it puts innocent peoples’ lives in danger, then by all means the terrorist has lost all of his rights. In this situation torture should be used to get information as it could help prevent a future catastrophe rather than punishing for a past
