Evidence for this is the quotation "Lennie looked helplessly at George, and then he got up and tried to retreat." He waits until George gives the command for Lennie to fight back so that Lennie protects himself. George has to tell Lennie three times to defend himself before Lennie grips Curley's hand and stops the man from hitting him. After Lennie crushes Curley's hand, it is agreed that Curley will say that the injury occurred as a result of an accident with a machine: “I think you got your han’ caught in a machine. If you don’t tell nobody what happened, we ain’t going to.
A Few Good Men shows many examples of learning how to take responsibility for personal actions, but one of the last scenes with Colonel Jessep reveals two points most related to this issue of responsibility: responsibility to authority and responsibility of authority. In the first, Marines Dawson and Downey begin to understand why answering to authority was wrong in this situation, and in the second, Colonel Jessep is convicted for a murder in which he never feels he should be responsible for. Both of these situations allow others to see issues of morals, responsibility, and obedience. A Few Good Men gives several lessons, one of which can impact society as a whole if understood thoroughly: One must always know they are responsible for their own actions--always. It does not matter what the circumstances are, one is responsible for what they do personally, and what the outcomes can be when ordering others to do something.
Jurors #3 and #10 are the most hostile of the jurors. They believe deep down that this boy killed his father. They believe that everything they heard in the courtroom holds true and they don’t really want to see this kid live any longer. Juror #8 still had reasonable doubt about the murder. He doesn’t want to vote guilty until he has enough evidence that this boy did indeed kill his father.
Readers then realize that Lennie doesn’t understand the difference between killing an animal and murdering a human, therefore putting other lives at risk. There was an instance where Crooks was in danger himself, the result of him taunting Lennie that George might never come back for Lennie. Readers can sense the danger that Crooks was facing when “Suddenly Lennie’s eyes centered and grew quiet, and mad. He stood up and walked dangerously towards Crooks. ‘Who hurt George?’ he demanded” (Steinbeck 73).
This is nothing but a sad story of a teenage boy gone from good to bad, who leads other kids into his “revenge” against the higher class. Their mission is to destroy an innocent man’s house and their reason is because it is still standing from the Blitzkrieg of London. 7) Though each and every individual in the Wormsley Common Gang is a delinquent, the whole gang itself has qualities which can be smiled upon. The gang’s values are flipped compared to other, usual gangs. First of all, they reject personal gain, forget personal rivalries, and maintain their own justice within their gang framework.
Week 2 Candice S. Brooks Instructor: Dr. Nwokoji 4007676 American Public University System CMRJ531 June 16, 2013 The profession of criminal profiling/ offender profiling is defined as a series of investigative techniques used to assess the characteristics of an unknown criminal offender (Devery, 2010). Criminal profiling is based upon the premise that a criminal’s personality and mannerisms actually dictate their daily behaviour as well as their criminal actions. After crime scene evidence is evaluated, the criminal profiler pieces together the information that is known from past criminal acts to include personality traits and behaviours of other criminals who have committed similar acts. The profiler can actually construct a profile by using a description of the characteristics in the suspect. These practices often lead to locating suspects, yet they are still often scrutinized in the media and cause a great deal of controversy.
Atticus may be portrayed as good, but he has his doubtful moments. Then, there is Bob Ewell who is seen as a monster throughout the book through the reader’s eyes because of his violent ways. “Somehow, I could think of nothing but Mr. Bob Ewell saying he’d get Atticus if it took him the rest of his life” (Lee 262) This shows that Bob Ewell is violent in his ways and portrays the evilness of the themes when he tried to harm the Finch children when he had wanted to get back at Atticus. A man is lower than life when he tries to harm a child especially his own or those who had nothing to do with his

He walked because they said he felt threaten from the argument he had started. They seem to fail to realize you can’t prove self-defense if one party is dead. So many people are misusing this law that the government has written to justify a situation. Third, stand your ground law should be outlawed because of the inability of common individuals to make life and death decisions. I have researched a few stories behind the stand your ground law and its amazing how so many people have got away with murder.
