There have been many female serial killers throughout history. Two stand out in particular, Hannah Mary Tabbs and Lizzie Borden. Both women, brutally dismembered their victims before they killed them. Both women were tried for their murders and both went to jail for their crimes. Lack of forensic evidence helped both of these women in their cases. Even though it is pretty clear that these women were responsible for the murders. There was no proof that they actually committed their crimes. Judges often are more lenient on women. Why? Is it because they think that women need a lighter sentence? Could it be that the judges think about the roles of housewife or mother? Women, no doubt should be treated equally to men, especially when it comes to a sentencing. If the woman was man enough to do the crime, she is man enough to serve the time.
I hear you Hanna. I remember how hard it is beginning on the road and you have people watching your every move. I thought Cris was very creative in the way she handled the young lady at the beginning of the Chapter 1. It is extremely hard to demonstrate classroom management strategies in addition to teaching reading strategies while you are beginning observed by twenty teachers.

She continued by sharing why reading the book was relevant for the student. Why did this girl need the information? What was the pay off for the student? Cris was able to think on her feet in front twenty teachers and pull that student in without escalating the problem and causing farther embarrassment. The amazing fact is that the girl, who attends an alterative high school, complied with Cris and joined the lesson. This girl acted out in front of twenty teachers without reservation. She was exceptionally daring. She could have easily gone a different way in terms of her behavior towards Cris.

In “Eichmann in Jerusalem,” Hannah Arendt analyzes Adolph Eichmann while he is on trial in Jerusalem for the crimes that he committed while being a Lieutenant Colonel in the SS during the Nazi Regime. In the book Arendt talks about how Eichmann’s actions were “banal” in the sense that he seemed to be an ordinary person who just committed acts that were evil. Italian-Jewish Writer Primo Levi, a Holocaust Survivor, states that SS officers like Eichmann lived in their own self-deception that made them believe that their actions were caused by just following their orders in the SS. In this paper, I will analyze the views that both Arendt and Levi had about the Eichmann trial and then compare and state the differences of their views. I will then explain the reasons why both Hannah Arendt’s and Primo Levi’s analysis of Adolph Eichmann that show that the actions that he committed were all truly evil actions.
