A Time to Kill (1996) Argumentative Paragraph
A Time to Kill (1996) Violations of the Canadian enlist of Rights & Freedoms In the picture show A Time To Kill, m all another(prenominal) rights & freedoms were violate according to the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms. In this paragraph, three very big & important rights and/or freedoms exit be discussed. The first is section 2 (Fundamental Freedoms), part c. The freedom of cool assembly was violated seven times in the movie the to the highest degree prominent is when the KKK formed outside the courthouse & demanded that Carl downwind be pronounced conscience-smitten or else theyre going to get violent, that is in direct ravishment of that freedom.Section 2, part d (freedom of association) was also violated as the KKK clearly violated that freedom by fundamentally being in existence because the shoot for of their association is to hurt or kill anyone who lives in the United States of the States and is not Caucasian and does not follow Christianity or Catholism. The s econd infraction is Section 15 (Equality Rights) subsection 1. This right provides equality before and down the stairs the law and equal protection and bene salvo of the law.Before & during the trial, Carl Lee was held in a segregated prison cell, which isnt so bad but hushed racialist, the next unfair treatment to Carl Lee was being put on trial in front of a bias and all washcloth jury. When Carl Lees lawyer demanded that the locale of the trial be changed due to the fact that the jury is all- black-and-blue and bias, he hoped it be changed to a venue where the jury will be maybe fifty percent black.The judge, who is white, denied that request quite blatantly and anyways started the trial in Canton with a bias jury, which later on in the movie proved to extremely racist in their reasoning for Carl Lee being guilty. The third and last of many other rights & freedoms that have been violated in this movie is, section 13 (treatment or punishment). Everyone has the right not to be subjected to any cruel and unaccustomed treatment or punishment. This right has been violated and abused in so many ways.Chronologically, Carl Lees daughter was raped and brutalized by the both racist red necks, Carl Lee being in a fit of rage procures an automatic rifle with a high ammunition potentiality and shot those two men in cold blood piece unintentionally s perpetuallyely injuring an officer of the law. If those violations werent enough, the KKK clan tries to punish the white lawyer for representing a black man by almost longing down his house and intentionally abusing and intending to kill that same lawyers paralegal.The clan capped it off by trying to assassinate Carl Lees lawyer with a high-powered sniper rifle, but the assassin bewildered and killed an officer (state trooper/soldier) of the United States of America. The Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms or any other similar constitution of rights and freedoms evidently was not implemented in the time presen t in the movie, but what is evident is that our society like a shot has learned from those ethical & moral mistakes of the past and created policies, rights & freedoms to help prevent those mistakes from ever happening again.
