Heather Whitestone McCallum was born on February 24, 1973 in Dothan, Alabama (“Heather Whitestone”). When Heather turned 18 months old, she captured a high fever from the virus, Haemophilus Influenzae, which resulted in hospitalization. Whitestone was close to death, when the doctors prescribed her two extremely powerful antibiotics. She returned home as a normal toddler until her mother had an accident in the kitchen and realized something was wrong. Whitestone’s mother had dropped several pans while cooking, and Heather did not jump or move when the pans hit the floor. Heather was taken to a children’s hospital, where the doctors concluded that she had lost her hearing from Haemophilus Influenzae, the powerful antibiotics, or a combination of both (“Heather Whitestone | Bio | Premiere Motivational Speakers Bureau.”). At a young age, Whitestone’s parents trained her to read lips and speak using an educational arrangement titled, “Acoupedics.” Because she learned how to speak and read lips, she did not receive an interpreter during her years in public school (“Heather Whitestone”).
Despite the level of irritation, people genuinely perceive killing another person as an evil act. According to 18 U.S. Code § 1111 - Murder, it states “Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being, or a fetus, with malice aforethought (a). Whoever is guilty of murder in the first degree shall be punished by death or by imprisonment for life” (b). Therefore, killing a person is not just about the illegality, but also the judicial punishments by law. There are several types of murder in the United States, such as: first degree murder, second degree murder, felony murder and aggravating circumstances. In the news article “Serial killer is denied parole again”, Hamilton introduces Juan Corona’s first degree murder case who has murdered 25 farm labors in the year 1971, and is currently he still serving a life sentence in the Corcoran State Prison, California. At the same time, the reporter highlights that The State Board of Parole has rejected Corona’s 8th parole request on November 9, 2016. In short, people should appreciate laws, understand crime, and acknowledge the importance of theories such as differential association theory because they aid the human society to solve social problems and accelerate public safety.
My life story I was born on November 25, 1997. I"m a loving son, brother, nephew, grandson, and cusion. My life started out great and awesome. Four years after living a life my mom and dad had other child a little boy my brother named DJ. That was the start of a new life and someone to hang out with. A few years later I had found out that my dad was not my real dad but guess what he is the only man in my life and was there when I was born thats my dad and I love him so much and think him ever day that he has been there every step of the way. Thank you God for this man. My life has threw me some hard balls too. Like when I was eight years old and I came home from a fun day and my mom lieing on the couch crying. My dad had to tell me
First and foremost, anytime we look at crimes against the innocent and vulnerable people, we tend to be more impacted. Although, most of us claim to be unbiased and believe in equality, we all place different values on different lives. To hear about a gang members being killed in a rival gang shootout, is less impactful as hearing about small children being killed by an Active Shooter in their school. I draw attention to this only to illustrate the emotional impact the Andrea Yates case had on the majority of our population. Cases like this cross a moral threshold that most of us cannot imagine. Be it the love we have for the children in our lives, or our understanding of their innocence. Unfortunately, according to Andrea Yates, it was this very innocence that drove her to kill her five children.
Mickalene Thomas was born in Camden, New Jersey in 1971, but now lives in Brooklyn, New York. She is well known for using rhinestones, acrylic, and enamel in her paintings and collages. The rhinestones in her paintings are a symbol of femininity. She also does photography and makes videos which are also about feminine sexuality, power, and most often beauty. Everything she makes is also usually about woman of color. She gets her inspiration from a variety of different things, some being from different artistic periods or Western art history. A lot of different artists inspired her such as Pablo Picasso, Romare Bearden, and Henri Matisse just to name a few. Even though she was inspired for most of her work from a number of different periods,
Are you aware that in America, a 39-year-old man who murdered two innocent teenage boys in cold blood was killed for his crimes? In this country, he would probably be free within years – possibly to inflict further unspeakable acts on society. Recently, in an English lesson, I read the article “I See A Killer Die” by Allan Hall in New York. My initial reaction was that the murderer Robert Harris deserved to die in the gas chamber, since he had intentionally killed two young innocent boys.
10 years ago punishment turned into a sport. Murder became very common. It was an entertainment which people couldn’t live without. The last scream or yelp was satisfying to some, yet chilling and addictive for others. Impelled by this, T.V telecasted the ‘12th Hour’, a prison program which soon became known for the most gruesome punishments. Murderers would be put into the prison for 12 days, with 13 other convicted murderers. Every time the clock struck 12 a criminal would meet their end. The only way to ever come out alive was ‘pure innocence’. A day ago I was framed for killing a 13 year old boy.
Mass Murderers are a menace to society that should be locked up, behind bars for life. Although mass murderers are horrible human beings, they still have the right to live, same as any other human being. There are two types of mass murderer: organized and unorganized. Under both of these categories, mass murderers can be categorized even further into subtypes of organized and unorganized mass murderers. Most mass murderers share similar traits such as being primarily caucasian and male. A mass murderer’s motives are their reasons or justifications for killing. Methods of mass murder are numerous and gruesome, but the most common method is death via firearm. Mass Murderers should be punished for killing; however, they should not be put to death. Criminologist agree that there is no hard evidence showing that the death penalty is a more effective deterrent than long term imprisonment. From a moral standpoint, a mass murderer killing innocent people is evil, but then why is the public’s response to kill the mass murderer acceptable? If killing is such a bad thing, then why is it being used as a punishment for doing bad things? It is paradoxical. The cost of housing an inmate for life is not a cheap expense; however, a human life is more valuable money. The most effective and moral way of punishing mass murderers is indefinite imprisonment, not a barbaric death penalty.
A criminal deserves to be punished in proportion to the crime he or she has committed. Society deserves retribution. The retentionists argue that the death penalty is a proportionate punishment for particularly awful crimes and they use pathos to make us sympathize with the victims of these crimes. Paul G. Cassell presents the case of Kenneth Allen McDuff who raped, tortured and murdered at least nine women.i Louis P. Pojman mentions Steven Judy who raped and murdered a woman and drowned her three children.ii Perhaps they are successful in their attempt to to lure us in to a sympathetic, vulnerable state. But it is not appropriate to judge a whole system based on individual cases. The abolitionists are guilty of this too, pointing to
