  • Self-defense In Criminal Cases. - 1,304 words
    One of the frustrations faced by many businesses is that after the perpetrators of crimes have been identified, the District Attorney's office will not pursue the case. One option is for victims to sue the DA in an attempt to compel him to prosecute, but this would be costly and proving dereliction of duty would be difficult. The DA is effectively immune. Other options are more promising. The law should encourage (and prosecutors' offices should welcome) private preparation of criminal cases. Prosecutors' budgets simply do not allow vigorous prosecution of all the available criminal cases. Logic and evidence show that in private law, plaintiffs win about 50 percent of the cases that are trie ...

  • Doc Holliday - 1,776 words
    ... gecoach for Denver, Colorado. Along the way, he stopped at Fort Griffin which, at the time, was the center of a flourishing cattle industry. Approximately two thousand hunters and cowboys annually visited Ft. Griffin. Their money and existence attracted gamblers and prostitutes alike, quickly giving Ft. Griffin the reputation as the craziest town in Texas. Docs stay was cut short when he was again arrested for gambling which was more than likely, a sign of showing a newcomer unwelcomeness rather than upholding the law. Holliday got the point and swiftly left Fort Griffin. John finally reached Denver in the summer of 1875. He assumed the alias of Tom Mackey in order to start a new life an ...

  • The Outsiders - 1,513 words
    "Among adolescents, so-called 'body talk' can be a major topic of discussion. This is the time when the body arrives to greet its owner, and how to respond with its obvious significance. With ease and enjoyment? With fear and constraint? With abandon, if not reckless abandon?" Robert Coles, (Coles 159). When adolescence occurs in the typical teenager, one of the major transitions in human life occurs. The body of a teenager becomes the body of an adult. This metamorphosis that occurs leaves the ordinary teen to use their new body in a way that they never have before. Robert Coles' quote and this ideology is greatly defined in the novel The Outsiders. The Outsiders is a novel based on an adol ...

  • Crisis Management - 1,458 words
    THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS - A Model of Crisis Management? A Biblical proverb says, "by wise guidance, and in the abundance of counselors, there is victory." 1 It is obviously believed by many leaders, especially when faced with situations or problems that demand expedient, careful, thorough analysis and thought to aid the decision-making process and render the appropriate response or solution. This style of crisis management has been a recurring theme with American leaders and our presidents when faced with crises. In 1962, President Kennedy, also followed suit by establishing the ExCOM group to garner advice and counsel, formulate plans, and devise the appropriate response to learning about ...

    ... find themselves in a predicament such as explorers, you can be sure decisions on whether to live or die will not be controlled by the contents of our law. Therefore, the statute in question does not at all apply to the case at hand such as the self defense plea. Foster's conclusions is that the defendants are innocent of the murder of Whetmore, and the conviction should be set aside. Justice Tatting finds himself letting his own emotions get the better of him when viewing this case. He finds himself torn between sympathy for the explorers and disgust in the brutal act they committed. Tatting finds Justice Foster's opinions on the case shot through "contradictions and fallacies". Tatting ...

  • Gun Control - 1,052 words
    Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience on the negative effects of gun control Central Idea: The effects gun control will have on the nation are leaving people unprotected against violent crimes, an infringement on states rights, and the loss of hunting and sport shooting in our country. In Cumberland, TN, a 28-year-old Jason McCulley broke into the home of Stanley Horn and his wife tied up the two of them at knifepoint, demanded to know where the couple kept their money in the house. While Mrs. Horn was directing the robber, Mr. Horn freed himself from the rope, grabbed his gun of the nightstand and shot the intruder then called the police.

  • Epic Of Gilgamesh - 3,001 words
    ... . Guns and violence are not just found in schools. In the state of Louisiana and Texas, more people now die from gunshot wounds than from car accidents. Since 1980 the citys homicide rate has doubled. These violent outrages are spurred on by deadly convergence of gangs, drugs, and even more assault weaponry. Juvenile arrests in our nation for homicides climbed from six to over one hundred in one year alone (Hull, 1993). Police have complained about being outgunned by drug dealers with Uzis and AR-15s (Lamar, 1989). The idea of having a gun has now moved from the drug scene, and currently infects a large segment of young people. Law enforcement officials would also like more restrictions ...

  • Capital Punishment - 682 words
    How criminals should be punished? Before any test in class, some students who are not well prepared for the test usually think about cheating in class. But when they know that the punishment for being caught will not be just a zero on the test as usual but an F for the class, they will think about it ten times before they do it. So, I believe that all sentencing is based on the principle that punishment should be proportionate to the seriousness of the crime, especially when it is about a crime like murder. While the debate over capital punishment wavers between its pros and its cons, the major questions are usually framed in terms of practicality: is execution of an offender the best way to ...

  • Oedipus Rex - 935 words
    The play Oedipus Rex may show mankinds search for a better society. The Greeks in the 5th century B.C. tried to make the most out of life. They wanted to know, what was the best way to live in that society at the time? The Greeks then began to study mankind. They began to determine between the rights and wrongs of the society. He who violated the social norms suffered throughout their life. For example, Oedipus Rex showed mainly three types of unmoral acts that deified the social norms of society. The main three were his Intellectual Pride, Three types of Hubris, and his anger and rash judgment towards Creon. Prior to the birth of Oedipus Rex, a prophecy was spoken over Laius and his wife, J ...

  • Shelleys Counsel - 1,755 words
    At the heart of mankind, there are certain rules by which society runs. These timeless laws or ethics cross cultural bounds in order to preserve lifes order and maintain a righteous standard. For example, almost all societies agree that it is immoral to kill another human being outside of self-defense. Christine Menefree of the School Library Journal defines ethics as the moral principles by which a person is guided (1). Many people develop their moral beliefs from their religious premises, but when applied to other influential aspects of life, these rules can become problematic. In the pursuit of knowledge in todays scientific world, there are many encounters of moral dilemmas and ethical ...

  • Achilles - 1,239 words
    The concept of heroism is a central theme in Greek mythology. Achilles, the main character in Homer's The Iliad, accurately depicts the concept of a tragic hero. Throughout his many experiences during the Trojan War, he reflects heroic qualities, and earns his name as the purest, the highest and "the best of the Achaians." Similar to Achilles, Socrates demonstrates several heroic characteristics, in Plato's work The Trial and Death of Socrates. Through his trial, apology and death, Socrates shows that his heroism and his commitment to his society are genuine. The Iliad confirms that a warrior lives and dies in the pursuit of honor and glory. Achilles place as a hero depended upon the underst ...

  • The Grapes Of Wrath - 1,579 words
    Through such hardships as the Depression, the Dust Bowl summers, and trying to provide for their own families, which included the search for a safe existence, we find the story of the Joad's. The Joad's are the main family in John Steinbeck's novel The Grapes of Wrath, which he created to give voice to the hundreds of families that found themselves at their absolute rock bottom during the Great Depression of the 20th Century in America. It wouldn't have been enough for Steinbeck to simply document the strife that faced these families in very plain terms, for anyone could have simply logged an account of events and published it. Rather, he needed to draw us in with emotional content, to do th ...

  • Feminism In Jane Erye - 1,313 words
    Feminism is a very contradictory theme throughout literary history. It does not have to be seen as a complete rebellion against men, but can simply represent intelligence and self-worth in a female. This philosophy is shown in many of the works of Charlotte Bronte. She uses independence as a keynote in her thinking about her own life and the life of all unmarried women (Ewbank 157). One such work is Jane Erye. In this novel Charlotte Bronte personifies her philosophy through the main character of Jane. As Jane matures from child to woman her strength of character is what makes her memorable. Through her endurance, moral convictions, and intense emotional capacity Jane is shown as the epidemy ...

  • Malcom X - 1,573 words
    Malcolm X is considered one of the greatest civil rights activists in history. He was known for his somewhat violent message of blacks defending themselves. Despite his original message, he eventually became more peaceful toward whites. However, as his legacy was just beginning to change things for the good, he was abruptly killed by gunmen. Due to his indecisiveness and early death, Malcolm X had a great, yet inadequate impact on the civil rights movement. Malcolm little was born on May 19, 1925, in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of Louise and Earl Little. In 1929 their house was firebombed by racists while the whole Little family was in the house. It was night and all of them were sleeping. Prob ...

    ... ar," was full of praise for Cromwells exploits. And despite a doubting attitude by Marvell towards Charles Is execution, he declared that much to Cromwell "is due." He stepped out of obscurity to "cast the kingdoms of old into another mold." In what battle of the Civil War were "[Cromwells] not the deepest scars?" asked the poet, who also admonished the Irish who "see themselves in one year tamed" by Cromwell. Marvell honored Cromwell for selflessly giving his victories to England: [He] forbears his fame to make it theirs: And has his sword and spoils ungirt, Finally, the author denigrated the rebellious Scots valor, as he unabashedly compared Cromwell to Caesar and predicted that the Sc ...

  • Was Germany Responsible For The Outbreak Of The First World War - 708 words
    The First World War was a devastating war that effected many places and also very many lives. Because of the effects of the war people were determined to search for the country that was to blame for all the disaster created. The outbreak was contingent on a determining number of factors. These factors included nationalism that was being spread throughout Europe during the time before World War I had started and the alliance system. Although Germany was not all to blame for the outbreak of World War I, it did contribute more than a fare share in its involvement in the alliance system, nationalism, the arms race, and emulation between countries and colonies. Previously, before the start of Wor ...

  • Years Of Change - 818 words
    4. The hopes and dreams of the League of Nation were quite realistic, although they simply rushed into them to fast. First of all, they tried to maintain the Treaty of Versailles. This frustarated Germany from the start, because they felt as though their honor was robbed from them. Later on, the League did not even notice the country reassembling their military troops, something the treaty outlawed. Trying to keep peace between Germany and the rest of the world was a realistic goal, but they simple did not go about it in the right way. Another reason that their realistic dreams of peace did not work was because they got started during an economical slump. The aftermath of the war left many c ...

  • Mlk And Malcolm X - 1,303 words
    Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X grew up in different environments. King was raised in a comfortable middle-class family where education was firmly stressed. Malcolm X, on the other hand came from an underprivileged home, where education was not such a big deal. Malcolm X was a self taught man, who received little schooling and rose to greatness on his own due to his own intelligence and determination. The early backgrounds of the two were clearly responsible for the distinct different responses to their fight against American racism. With King being a well-educated man, he had read up on non-violence, and would use non-violence as the tactic of the Civil Rights Movement in which he led ...
