The facts tell us that Deft searched for several months but was unable to find the killer, Deft went to the 38th street pier in search of the killer, and that Deft pulled out a handgun and shot Kyle in the chest. He intended to kill because he took the gun; the search for several months and the act of going to the pier to find the killer were deliberate and planned acts. Deft’s actions are the actual and proximate cause of Kyle’s death. Deft’s act of shooting Kyle in the chest is the actual cause. Furthermore, Deft’s acts meet the “but for” rule: but for Deft’s actions, Kyle would still be alive.

Following on from this, Gudjohnsson carried out a study involving a case study about a 17 year old boy who confessed to crime and was subsequently imprisoned for one year. Later it was found out that his confession was false and he was not guilty of committing the crime. Gudjohnsson wondered how false confessions can arise. The aim of the study was therefore to document the case of the false confession of a youth who was at the time of the confession distressed and susceptible to interrogative pressure. In 1987 two elderly women were found battered to death in their homes, their savings were stolen and there was evidence of sexual assault.
For example, 13 year old Jordan Brown of Pennsylvania was being tried on the murder of his father pregnant fiancé back in 2009. “Amnesty International has urged US authorities in Pennsylvania not to try Jordan in an adult court, as doing so could result in a violation of international law. If tried as an adult and convicted of first-degree murder, he would face life imprisonment without parole” ("AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL"). It is only right to sentence Jordan to life in prison because of his actions. He did not only kill his father’s pregnant fiancé, he also murdered their unborn child.
Voluntary Active Euthanasia is a type of euthanasia when the physician administers the medication that will end the person’s life. Physician Assisted Suicide or PAS is a type of euthanasia when the physician will provide the means to end the person’s life but the patient actually administers the medication themselves to end their life (Alters, S., 2005, p. 14-15). PAS is the method of euthanasia that was used by Dr. Jack Kevorkian and his suicide machine. RIGHT TO DIE 3 Dr. Jack Kevorkian once said in an interview, “My specialty is death.” (Physician-Assisted Suicide, 2006, p. 832). It is estimated that Dr. Kevorkian assisted in 130 deaths with his suicide
Oedipus specifically states, “no special favors and no personal ties will tear the guilty party from my grasp,” (Seneca 210). In both plays, dramatic irony is found in Oedipus’ proclamation for finding out who the killer of Laius is. This is shown when Creon brings the news from Delphi that the city's plague is due to the murder of the last king Laius. The pitiful condition is fixable but requires the banishment of the killer or even execution. Oedipus at once takes the steps to find out who the killer is and announces that if the killer makes a confession he will receive only banishment instead of capital punishment.
Durkheim sets up a casual relationship between suicide and different social structures – to do this he used already available data on suicide rates. His method included empirically dismissing what he thought to be additional factors in order to uncover the causal variables. One of these factors that he eliminated as a causal variable was Tarde’s imitation theory. Others he rejects are individual psychopathology, alcoholism, race, heredity and climate – some are more convincing than others – many have pointed pout flaws in the alcoholism argument – what is important is the method Durkheim quote about individual vs. social causes of suicide: “They may be said to indicate the individual’s weak points, where the outside current bearing the impulse to self-destruction most easily finds introduction. But they are no part of this current itself, and consequently cannot help us to understand it” (p.151) Ritzer, “Durkheim concluded that the critical factors in
Unit 9: Final Project Joe Sloppner CJ140: Introduction to Constitutional Law Instructor: Irene H. Gainer, R.N., J.D. June 17, 2009 In the case Roper v.

The basic definition of homicide is the killing of one human being by another human being. To advance past the basic definition, one must be aware of the various types of homicide. Homicide has three fundamental components justifiable, criminal, and excusable. Taking at brief glance at the three fundamentals, one will begin with justifiable homicide. A justifiable homicide is the killing of a person allowed by the law, for the good of civilization, and in some cases self-defense unless classified as excusable.
