Paul Bernardo's Argumentative Essay

Improved Essays
This was the first case I have ever studied and actually took an in-sight look on, and let me tell you, I was very unsatisfied, sick to my stomach and angry, to say the least. I am upset that it took twenty-three girls to be raped and even three murdered in order to finally see justice served, that in my opinion wasn’t even served. First off, just because the Scarborough rapes had stopped, they felt that there was no need to put Paul Bernardo’s DNA samples as high priority, and as a result pushed them to the back of the line and had to wait three years to hear an answer that many detectives had thought they knew anyways. What also upset me is that Paul Bernardo had the audacity to ask if he was able to have day parole. To even think that he feels he has a right to be in society is sickening, and the fact that he has shown no remorse for everything he has done proves that he is a psychopath. He still hasn’t even taken any responsibility for the three girls’ murders and still blames everything on Karla Homolka, his now ex-wife. It outrages me to even write about Karla Homolka but I must give her credit for her smarts when it came to making a deal with police. I believe that Karla Homolka was the only reason the three girls had died because if you look back at all of Paul Bernardo’s rapes before he met Karla, none of his victims were killed. Yes, Paul Bernardo was extremely abusive, but I do not think he had enough guts to ever actually kill a girl. I think that Karla was his life-coach directing him into helping her kill the girls. …show more content…
Yes the case could have been dealt with a lot better, but taking into consideration the technology and laws in the past, everyone on the case did the best they could do to catch the infamous “Scarborough

    I am uncomfortable with the whole concept of the death penalty, the methods of execution, and the lack of standards supporting this sentence. I believe that it should be completely banned worldwide just because of how terrible it is as an overall punishment. A short while ago, I had heard about Kelly Gissendaner who was executed in the state of Georgia; apparently, she was the first woman in a long time who had been executed in the state. I read up on her story, and I was appalled with the sentence, and even more upset that she did not get an appeal. She was involved in the murder of her husband by convincing her boyfriend at the time to kill him; oddly, in this case, she had no physical hand in the murder.…

    The death of William was truly caused by Frankenstein’s monster, but instead Justine was blamed because of tampered evidence. During the court case, she fights for her innocence and no one believes her. Frankenstein describes his thoughts about how it should have been him being accused of Williams murder. Frankenstein proposes that “a thousand times rather would I have confessed myself guilty of the crime ascribed to Justine” (83). The use of “a thousand times” proves how the guilt consumes him, but he never tells anyone that the monster was the true killer.…

    (157) This was said by Smith, and proves very clearly that they had no reason to murder the family and had no conscious that murdering a man who had done nothing to him was bad. Smith was the most violent towards Herb Clutter, also. He had cut Herb's throat and then shot him, causing him more pain than the other members of the family, for again, no real reason. The Clutter family deserve justice and the only way for that to happen is Smith and Hickock to receive the death penalty. The men murdered without provoking or reason, and they are very…

    Creon Tragic Flaw Analysis

    Medea, an “unhappy woman” makes an act to condemn Jason for his selfishness in leaving her, but she does not realize that in her “harsh murder” of her own children, she too is acting selfishly (Medea 1496). Creon first introduces his tragic flaw by metaphorically explaining that the “ship of state” has “come safely to harbor at last” (Antigone 1.8-10). This statement proves Creon’s pride in himself that his ruling alone will bring about a peaceful time. Throughout the story, Creon continually refuses to listen to the Choragus’ thoughts and ideas because he considers himself completely correct. He also disregards Antigone’s accusations that he acts wrongly against the gods.…

    It is clear and definite that the Misfit lacks empathy, a psychopath, and is not one of those murderers that does it for fun and so see their victim in pain, a sadist. Towards the end of the short story, the Misfit is expresses how he kills people for the meanness of doing it (O 'Connor 308). The Misfit goes on to say “no pleasure but meanness” (O 'Connor 308). He then murderers the grandmother in cold blood showing no remorse or any kind of sympathy for her. Without skipping a beat he then finishes his previous thought saying “no real pleasure in life.” (O 'Connor 309).…

    Also, the same man that raped Shola, flogged her for trying to escape. All of this psychological distress would wear anyone down. When a human being’s basic human rights are being infringed upon, a person’s violent reaction to the situation can be justified. Shola, after all of the misery she had gone through and felt, finally killed the head master. If she had never time traveled, she would have most likely never killed anyone in her lifespan.…
