The narrator’s violent tendencies and overall high capability of various emotions clash with the rest of the “Dull” town’s banal attitude toward everything. The town sees this and rather than deal with the “problem” of having some kind of issue in their system, they discard of their criminal into total and complete isolation. The town’s actions are much like those of the societies in jail. The moment a criminal starts to exhibit actions just a smidge more dangerous—different—than other people they get sent into solitary confinement for months and even years. Many officials are aware the criminals they cart off into absolute loneliness aren’t sane, but they say it’s “for their own protection as well as the criminals around them” (Crystal).
Elia Kazan’s ‘On the Waterfront’ is a 1954 American crime drama film about union violence and corruption among longshoremen and the redemption of Terry Malloy who is the main protagonist. Not one character can be seen to have power as there is a power shift throughout the film. The characters who strive for power are the characters that are able to gain power from others because of the power shift during the film. ‘Only you, with God's help, have the power to knock 'em off for good!’ Those who are a part of the power shift have some sort of power. Much of the corruption in the film is the fault of Johnny Friendly because he is the leader of the longshoremen, meanwhile Father Barry tries to take control by supporting those who wish to gain power.
Crooks’s little dream of the farm is shattered by Curley’s wife’s nasty comments, putting the black man right into his "place" as inferior to a white woman, somebody already seen as being inferior to everyone else on the ranch to begin with. Crooks refuses to say Curley’s wife is wrong, he accepts the fact that he lives with ever-present racial discrimination, and says he had "forgotten himself" because they’d treated him so well. Crooks self-opinion isn’t based on what he believes he’s worth, but on knowing that no matter how he feels, others around him will always value him as less. As quickly as he got excited about the
With his limited relationships with the opposite sex, he was never taught how to be respectful towards women. Pickton worked on his farm, meaning he performed physical labour in order to earn his living. On the other hand, prostitution in the view of Pickton may have been a career that earned a living off of pleasure rather than pain; this might have been an unfair and morally unacceptable way to earn a living in the eyes of this murderer. From this, the man may have not felt any sympathy for these women, so he decided to indulge his guilt-free attitude in the killing of a specifically characterized group of targets. Looking at Pickton’s victims, it’s clear that the majority of the women were weak and unstable.
However, I believe that the death penalty is inhumane and should not be used anymore. It has been said that the death penalty serves as justice for a murder victim and their family, however, the death penalty itself is a form of murder. When is it okay to take a life? Is it only okay for the justice system to take a life for the justice of another life? Supporters of the death penalty argue that it is the only just punishment for a murderer.

Thus, nobody should ever turn to the death penalty as an alternative to punish these infamous criminals. Besides, there is no evidence that the death penalty actually deters criminals. But what does the death penalty actually do? Does it truly help ease the pain of the victims? Many people tend to incline towards the death penalty because they tend to feel that it avenges their losses, but evidence shows that this is not ever true.
