Secrets of The Dark Knight Revealed! Drawing upon such diverse representations of vengeance as Greek mythology, the plays of Shakespeare, Dante's Inferno, the folklore of the Wild West, the Mafia, and contemporary films, the authors examine the historic and cultural manifestations of the need to inflict punishment on one's enemies. The authors contend that all acts of vengeance arise from an elemental sense of injustice—a feeling of being arbitrarily subjected to a tyrannical force against which one is powerless to act—and that the injured party is motivated by a desire for equality, justice, and reciprocity.

If people got the help, justice, support, a fair wage they needed at the beginning housing, education, healthcare which includes mental then revenge would be less frequent and severe. We are a society of cowards who won't dare hold anyone accountable for fear of damaging our own networks and reputations. No one trusts each other. Punishing wrong doers is brave and noble, or the closest thing we've got right now.

Studying the work of Rene Girard has been the only illuminating and workable consolation for me regarding mankind and violence. Here are the 4 major points the 4th will irritate most no doubt, but Girard approached the Bible as historical literature, not sacred text. But cloaking it in an institution doesn't make it any better, any more than cloaking superstition in a "church" makes it rational. I'm wondering how well Dr. Seltzer knows the case.
Depending on your point of view, Zimmerman may or may not have engaged in anti-social behavior prior to the actual conflict. For sure it was not criminal.
The only crime committed was Martin's attempt to administer 'street justice'. If watching another person is criminal we would not have a society at all for even the jailers would have to be locked up. As to anti-social behavior being the root cause of the conflict, had Martin been behaving in school he would have been home in Miami Gardens, not Sanford. I was enjoying the above article until Seltzer brought in his personal bias by mentioning Zimmerman. Seltzer certainly does not know the facts in this case, apparently only what he read in the newspaper.
Martin was the one attempting street justice, and he paid. The case was investigated by Florida Dept of Law Enforcement as well as by the Obama administration's Dept of Justice, and both found insufficient evidence to file any charges against Zimmerman. As for Zimmerman's subsequent actions, I wonder if Seltzer is able to put his Ph.
Great point, sir. Zimmerman broke no laws. There was zero evidence to the contrary. For these reasons he was not charged. The Obama "Traygone looks like my son" Administration race baiters went so far as to spend federal funds to transport and pay for professional protestors and agitators to infest FL, with the express purpose of perverting justice and public opinion. This failure of objectivity and education on the facts soiled this entire article just as I already began to seriously question its previous positions and arguments. Get educated!
The author, in my opinion, presented that as an example of a miscarriage of justice in an unbiased manner and provided George Zimmerman's ongoing violent, illegal behavior as evidence of his character and personality. These aggressive characteristics, his basically flawed and violent personality framework, is not only in reaction to what he did.
It is a continuation of George Zimmerman before he killed Trayvon Martin. Nothing new, more of the same, how he justified killing Trayvon Martin, at least to himself. Aside from that, I'm really commenting to inform PT. Of course, they are not racist because they are wrong about this case.
They use racist keywords. They repeat proven lies about the President's behavior based on his perceived race and color compared to Trayvon Martin's perceived race and color. I read a lot of things that I disagreed with but then I realized I'm confusing justice with law. Whenever I read something in this article saying justice is unbiased I hear "law is unbiased".
I do not believe law is unbiased. If the law were unbiased then the majority of people who claim to have been rape are liars. That doesn't sound right does it? There must be some bias leading to a lower conviction rate than what you would expect.
