This only causes Monster's reputation and ego to grow which is his goal. Putting monster under higher security only proves to others, how dangerous he really is and adds glory to gang life. Authorities would be better off to treat Monster like any other criminal. By recognizing his name and reputation, he gains self satisfaction. As well as identifying individuals, correctional system make the mistake of identifying each gang.
Having people take matters into their own hands is common and seems to be the only thing that gets results. In addition to using violence for justice, the characters in The Godfather use it to achieve their business objectives. This includes intimidation to bend people to do the family’s will and the outright murder of other powerful figures in rival families. The corruption present in the movie and the effectiveness of using violence to accomplish business objectives makes violence seem like the only plausible solution to the problems the characters face.
Jack De Bellis states that Capote altered times, directions, and places throughout the “non-fiction novel” (De Bellis 523). De Bellis also claims that Capote altered facts about the characters of the book, mostly Perry. He suggests that Capote altered some facts about the characters to help build characterization. We automatically assume that the killers are bad, yet once we read part two of In Cold Blood we realize that the killers have a background that shaped them into who they were in the story. The victims, the Clutter Family, were depicted as the perfect “All-American Family” who were loved by the entire community, while the criminals are depicted as mentally unstable.
This argument by Kant shows that offenders will get what they deserve when they commit a wrongful act, but some criminals or murderers don’t really know what is going on, thus they are not deserving of punishment. Kant believes in universalizing the maxims which you act on, hence a murderer has willed that the same thing be done to him which makes the death penalty morally required according to Kant(Kant, pg 240). This shows that Kant is a strong supporter of the death penalty because without it how would we be able to rightfully punish murderers. Therefore all murderers ought to be sentenced to death row and if they are not proven inno... ... middle of paper ... ...idivist murders, in which murderers are given the opportunity to kill innocent people while they are sentenced. Therefore, no matter how you look at it the retributivists have two risks while Bedau only has one.
Vigilantism can be looked at as crime if you look at it in a negative way, or it can be looked at in a positive way. Many vigilantes help make the world a better place every day by doing away with the evil people in this world who kidnap, rape, murder, and loot people in the streets. Vigilantism is justified because the vigilantes help make the world a better place and help bring to justice the ones that the law cannot catch. American vigilantism began way in the Deep South and old west during the 1700s when the criminal justice system was ineffective or if the law itself was considered corrupted. Groups of people would join as one and would call themselves vigilance committees and these people would get together to banish or kill those who threatened their communities, their families, or their privileges and lives which they worked so hard to establish(mega links).
Claudius is a villain because of his enormous greed, his overwhelming selfishness and his use of intelligence for evil purposes. Claudius was motivated to take the throne for many reasons but one of the mains ones was his enormous greed. Claudius was not happy being the king’s brother, or being super wealthy, but rather he wanted to be the king himself, he wanted to be the wealthiest and most powerful man in entire kingdom. Claudius reflects back on what he has done when he says, “Forgive me my foul murder? /That cannot be; since I am still possessed/ Of those effects for which I did the murder-/ My crown, mine own ambition, and my queen.” (Hamlet 3.3.52-55).
The decisions we make can lead to a life of distraction or a life of success. Born with the same advantages and disadvantages, Rocket and Lil Ze chose what’s more important to them; a life of crime or a life towards success. Though challenges come and go we have to choose to resist temptation or give into it. Morality is also an issue in the film, the drug dealers and the next generation gain respect and power by killing each other off. They want respect but don’t give respect.
For the culture of a gang, being relevant means a lot because that puts the gang in the spotlight and adds even more to the gangs reputation. When a gang is not relevant this can mean two things: one would be that the gang has lost confidence and is disbanded, and the second would be that the gang will become more violent, committing large scale acts of unlawful deeds ... ... middle of paper ... ...o take stress on individuals with a higher chance of breaking they resort to gangs to protect and strengthen them. The cons of being in a gang would be that you have to stay loyal to the gang, if they ask you to murder someone close to you because they got in the way or is part of another gang, can cause a role conflict. Breaking rules of the gang would get you either killed or beaten for a certain amount of time. Though gang life does have structure, it can easily overwhelm a new member.
Many people are split on the idea of capital punishment because it involves death. I feel that capital punishment is morally and ethically acceptable because it rids society of our worst criminals. Many people argue that killing criminals who kill is just as bad as being the criminals. For one the criminals killed innocent people who had no idea what was coming, and had no way to prevent it. The criminal who commited the crime in almost all cases had to commit first degree murder, which includes some planning of the act.
Displaying the executed in a public area would desensitize society to eventually adapt to the bizarre laws. The dehumanization of an offender is an effective strategy for society to feel no remorse over a criminal. By all means, the public would rather celebrate and be relieved that a criminal
