  • Stockholm Syndrome Research Paper

    On the morning of August twenty-third, 1973, in a place called Stockholm, Sweden, Jan-Erik Olsson, an escaped convict, entered the Sveriges Kreditbanken, a bank in Stockholm, and took four bank employees hostage. He carried a loaded submachine gun and fired it into the ceiling, causing a mass panic. Jan-Erik wounded a policeman and demanded more than $700,000 in Swedish and foreign currency, a getaway car, and the release of Clark Olofsson, a convict who was serving time for an armed robbery and as an accessory in the 1966 murder of a police officer. When they were not able to take the hostages with them in order to get away safely, it turned into a six-day hostage drama. This enabled Jan and Clark to form a strong bond with the hostages.

This concept was named “Stockholm Syndrome” by the media.…

This does not sound like a great deal to do, however it brings to question on the idea of authority and how it is connected to the physical aspect of it. Why humans find the means of using such force to be deceivingly justifiable. Another…

  • Challenges Of A Hero Policy

    If you manage to come out of a robbery safe and sound after you averted a theft, the way Blake did in scenario 2, your employer could fire you for violating company policy. In fact, your employee doesn’t need a reason to fire you if you’re an at-will employee. Employment-at-will can be exercised by any employer on any employee. According to Bredeson (2012), “Most employees in America are employees-at-will, which means that they can be fired at any time, for almost any reason.” While…
