What was Sam Houston's most heroic decision?Sam Houston made countless decisions in his life, such as his stance on the Alamo, his disapproval for the Kansas-Nebraska Act however, I think his most heroic decision was when he took a position on the Texas secession that proved as his most heroic decision.

When analyzing the case of Randy Jones, it is necessary to piece together the meaning behind each of his actions in order to understand his mental status at the time of the murders. According to the two psychologists who examined Jones, he suffers from Antisocial Personality Disorder, APD. APD is a personality disorder actually listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. So according to the Psychologists he does have a mental disorder. This type of mental disorder is characterized by repeatedly infringing on the rights of others; including behaviors such as aggressiveness, deceitfulness, impulsivity, recklessness, lack of remorse and failure to conform to social norms. I agree with the psychologists that Jones does have a mental disorder. Jones killed five women over the course of six years. Society does not approve of killing another human being but rather condemn it, this is a failure to conform to the norms of society. By only targeting women this narrows down his trigger to women. Jones doesn’t just kill these women but he mutilates them afterward, showing an anger or rage that is so strong it continues after his victim is dead. The incident with the police officer contributes to his state of mind during the commission of the crime. Jones was able to elude the police officer, thus displaying his deftness in persuasion and deceit. He was able to remain calm and collected in an extremely when he got pulled over with a victim in his

Being a proud native Texan, you can trace my family back to the time when Sam Houston was President of the country of Texas. However, shortly after the US attacks on 9/11, choosing to not live in fear my father accepted a position in his company which entailed moving our family to New York City.

Although Edward Clark replaced Sam Houston as Governor of Texas when Houston refused “to take a loyalty oath to the new Confederate States of America, Sam Houston nevertheless remained a force to be reckoned with in Texas politics.” The article, "Sam Houston Returns? Two Letters from Texas Secessionists in 1863,” provides evidence that after two years of fighting, secessionist leaders feared the possibility of a growing rise of Unionism from its war-weary citizens. Secessionist leaders feared the growing creation of more secret loyalist societies following the actions of secessionist who conducted a mass hanging of suspected secret “Union League” members at Gainesville. That these hangings could heighten the public interest to side with the Unionist and rally around Houston’s banner if he reentered the political arena to become the States’ governor. Evidence supporting these fears comes from two letters written by William Richardson the editor of the Galveston News and Harris A. Hamner the co-editor of the White Man. These letters demonstrate Richardson and Hamner wanted to marginalize Houston’s popularity and possible bid to reenter politics. They collaborated with Senator Louis T. Wigfall to devise ways to undercut Houston’s efforts. They believed that “if well-respected newspapers outside Texas revived tales of Houston’s past Union sentiments and paraded them before the public, then pro-Confederate forces within the state could reprint them and escape the charge
I am writing you on behalf of Tory Monroe. Please take into consideration that Tory has been struggling with alcohol abuse and mental health issues. Please note that Tory has started treatment at Maine Behavioral Health Care for medication management and therapy. Tory has never received an adequate level of rehabilitation in the community. There is a gap between the criminal justice system and rehabilitation, I am sure you are aware. Tory lacks decent job skills to obtain sustainable work which tends to inhibit his progress in the community. Tory’s previous felony convictions have been a great barrier in Tory being able to secure a decent job. This is due to the fact that many employers discriminate against those with criminal records. I am asking if there is a program Tory could be referred to that would increase his skill set and work on his mental
