He tries to appeal to the readers’ emotion whenever he can. He uses information that appeals to himself and other readers as opposed to Bruck’s essay. In contrast, in “No Death Penalty” written by Bruck, it seems that the majority of the essay was just quotes and cold hard facts that Bruck found before writing. He quotes Koch several times and tries to convince the reader that Koch’s information is incorrect. Overall, I am more convinced by Koch’s essay than Bruck’s essay just because it appeals to me on a more emotional level, and causes me to want to keep the death penalty.
Understanding the moral concept of torture being wrong but in this case the use of torture used to terrorist attacks on innocent people. A fine line when discussing what is right and wrong however executed in the proper way should be accepted. When identifying torture by no means should it be physical pain that’s involved. Mental torture has been used and considered illegal to obtain information, but most of the time used without a second glance. If McCain even agrees with the simple fact how Al Qaeda expresses the word “sociopath” in relation to the meaning of terrorists acts, it applies to them (Page698).
We are to keep the peace among the nations of the earth because that is our belief as a people, but we must know our enemy, we must know their intentions and what they wish to carry out. Terrorists do not adhere to the custom of respect of an individual. They act as animals, slaughtering without remorse. They do not deserve the rights of our nation or of man. The argument for the Justification of torture on terrorists is completely justifiable and the only course of action in ascertaining vital information for the nation’s defense.
This then moves to him coming to a swift and perhaps hasty conclusion without taking in all the evidence at the end of Act 1. Then through Act 2 we see Hales doubts grow as he realises he may be guilty of making rushed and thus poor decisions and the court’s accusations may be unjust. Not long after he first arrives in Salem, Reverend Hale’s words tell the audience a bit about his character and mentality. When Hale says ‘I shall not proceed unless you are prepared to believe me if I should find no bruise of hell upon her’ he is shown to be self-confident and unbiased. Despite all the opinions and views that are being aired, Hale is not swayed and announces that he will be the judge of whether there is witchcraft in Salem or not.
I would recommend it to anyone that would want to get a glimpse of Islamic fundamentalist terrorism and the events that led to the 9/11 attacks. I would not recommend it to anyone that was directly affected by 9/11 they might be still emotional. I found myself crying while reading his story about that day and I only had an indirect connection to that day. I think the purpose of this book was not to point out the inadequacies of law enforcement but to show that even though they were doing their jobs they had difficulties beyond their control that prevented them for from doing what they needed to do to do their job to the best of their abilities. This book is also an eye opener for anyone that did not live through or old enough to remember the attacks discussed.
Lithwick:Teens, Nude Photos and the Law In this article, published in Newsweek, the author explains the harsh possible outcomes from teenagers sending at the own free will nude photos of themselves to their mates or lovers. Something that the author defines as “sexting” epidemic and analyses how the law is treating offenders and victims. The author makes an obvious claim that the criminal-justice system is too harsh to solve any issues that deal with teens and technology because this issue is becoming more common and although he doesn’t examine different or alternative ways to solve the problem, personally I agree with him that the law should not interfere with such juvenile cases because being exposed to others instead of the person it was intended for is punishment enough. In the article, the author brings personal stories which highlight three
While assuming JIB to be true, Shelton wages war on the government and by extension those who support it. He views this as a last resort, since he watched all the other non-violent options fail him. Thus this war can be justified. Shelton is justified in his actions because he is redressing a wrong suffered, and his intentions are to rid the corruptness from the judicial system. The people that Shelton killed are considered combatants because they support they governmental system and work with it.
He stands his ground when giving his opinions; he tries not to offend the audience so he gives his reasons and uses them wisely. But, when Terrell used the phrase “that is utter nonsense” that could easily make his readers turn away and look at the article from a different perspective. When writing there needs to be grabbers throughout the whole article and he is more than fair. There is enough flexibility in the article to understand ones reasoning about the gun control. At first, it might come off that his reasons may have not been very strong but he surely does state a point.
