The Labeling, Conflict and Strain theories are three of the most important theories for understanding what caused the brothers to start, continue, and stop killing the mafia. Each of the theories plays a part in causing the brothers’ to kill, but without all of them they would not have the acceptance and success that they did. These theories, even though they are meant for the real world are just as relevant for works of fiction in movies and books. Works Cited Adler, Patricia A., and Adler Peter.

Huck wanted to protect Jim so he told a lie to the slave hunters about a small pox outbreak to keep them from searching near him and it actually worked. In this situation Huck went against society because during this time in the book slavery was still going on. It wasn't likely for a Black man to be protected so Huck was open minded in this situation and did what he thought was right because Jim was a loyal friend to him. He's taught by society to regard Jim but he realizes that that's not how he wants to be and sees Jim as a human like himself and everybody else. Huck realizes that society teaches to treat people poorly because of their skin color.
Thus, Pulp Fiction challenges racial barriers. Jules Winnifield begins the movie as a criminal, a hit-man to be specific, but as the movie progresses he decides to move away from his life of crime in pursuit of righteousness. Jules’s character development challenges racial stereotypes because he is initially presented as a stereotype, but as the movie progresses he moves away from the cliché and becomes an individual. His character development thus shows the audience that African Americans are not confined to a few archetypes. African American males are frequently portrayed in media as heartless criminals, who do not think twice about their actions, and this is how Jules is portrayed the beginning of the story.
We are taught that obedience is a law from heaven. Being obedient means that we are willing to be faithful in all the Lord asks of us. This includes doing what He commands without question, doubt, or murmuring. We are willing to be better than we ever have been before! It shows our love for Christ and His sacrifice and our appreciation to our Father in Heaven.
God gave individuals free will, and they are responsible for their actions. The government has no right to interfere with human nature. A person can choose to be good or evil as Alex tries to demonstrate when he says: “ what I do I do because I like to do”. With this statement, Alex clearly demonstrates that he is responsible for his actions and he chooses to act out against society simply because he likes to, because he is attracted to sin. When Alex and his gang attack F. Alexander and his wife, we again witness horrible acts of violence that are ultimately the result of Alex’s choice.
John Allen gave up the less dangerous career of pimping, chose the more dangerous route of drug dealing and robbing. (Katz CC Pg 317) By then we can see that crime is a choice, socio-economic factors doesn’t always come into play but more about what character the individual wants to be. After all, the crimes committed cannot be blame on the capitalism and poverty, but the individual themselves; whom the justice should punish.
Boo risked his life and even more of his bad reputation to save the children. Law-abiding heroes should be treated with regard and respect not a trial and possible jail sentence. Mr. Ewell's intentions were illegal and what he had done to harm the black community has be... ... middle of paper ... ...n. Boo is a human being as well, not a selfless killing machine. Boo's heroic act should be rewarded and if he prefers the solitude of home, so shall it be. It is evident that Arthur "Boo" Radley is a free innocent man.
The convicted of killing the four innocent people, because they had a wrong address, was their own personal decision that turned bad for them. Even if those guys have hit the right house and killed the other gang members its still not worth of going to jail and being placed on death row for. Tiequon Cox when younger had a chance to turn his life around, he was good at sports, but his behavior eliminated him from “normal” teen life and opened him to the gang world. Classical theory explains that there is a availability for alternative choices, but as stated before, Cox had nobody to tell him better when he was growing
It is not an attempt to excuse or justify their crimes, but an objective depiction of the interacting factors that make young boys like Li 'l Zé and the Runts to be transformed from innocent children to gun-toting robbers and drug sellers. They are victims of government negligence of the slum’s poor, exemplified by an urban planning policy that limits resource allocation to poor neighborhoods. The ending scene drives this point home powerfully when the Runts ask each other if anyone of them can write so they can make the hit list. Without education, how does the government expect such youths to earn a living, and how much can they be justifiably blamed for turning out the way they did? In the City of God, crime is the beast.
