George is twelve years old and currently in middle school. He is a straight A student and a very nice kid. One day after school, George is walking back home. Just into his walk, he can hear the school bully, Bud, asking him to slow down. When Bud did finally catch up to George, he asks very aggressively to see George’s toy he brought with him to school for show and tell. When George refused, Bud lost his cool and began to act physical with George and starts pushing him.
George tries to defend himself but Bud is a much bigger boy and Leary at a disadvantage to him. After five minutes of tussling around, Bud trips George and he hits his face on the curb and loses his two front teeth. Laughing out loud, Bud takes the teeth as a trophy to show off to his other bully friends. B) This is a good example of a model case because the school bully is a big, violent kid with no remorse for others. He picks on the weaker students who are smaller than him and violates them, resulting in personal injury due to aggressive behavior. ) Fighting kicking tripping punching schoolyard bullies after school Violence blood scars movies losing teeth aggressive intentional Step 2 Contrary Case a) Dan, 32, is a professional JIFF fighter. One night around 12 am after an intense workout with his trainer, Dan decides to head home. Since he lives kind of far, he decides to take a shortcut through a rough neighborhood with a history of violence. A few minutes walking into this dangerous area, Dan can hear a woman screaming for help.
He narrows down the location and witnesses a woman being raped by a tall, drunk man. Dan immediately runs towards the helpless woman and beats up her rapist so bad until his knuckles started to hurt. The woman handed Dan and was forever grateful for his heroics that night. B) This is a good example of a contrary case because had Dan not been violent and beat the rapist up; the woman in the case might not have been spared and would have been another victim of a rapist. Dan applied his fighting skills to successfully fend off the woman’s attacker.

He is locked up for the murder of his elderly neighbor. TX prefers to keep to himself while incarcerated, eyeing how not to many outstanding citizens is locked up with him.

The correctional officer sits down besides TX, looks him dead in the eye and gives TX an ultimatum; pay $100 every month to Big API or be put away in solitary confinement for a straight month. TX ignores the officer and proceeds to get up and leave. That made Big API angry so he stands up, throws It’s food on the ground and strikes him in the face. TX retaliates by punching Big API in his big stomach. The other officers rush to Big Papa’s aid and tackle TX. Surely after this situation, TX is put into solitary confinement. ) Why it pulls to yes: TX could have reported the correctional officer who was attempting to take advantage of him. Furthermore, the officer could have been fired by his superiors and the whole situation could have been averted completely. Why it pulls to no: TX was just defending himself when the correctional officer punched him. TX was doomed no matter what course of action he took. If he didn’t retaliate, he was going to solitary confinement. If he did retaliate, he was still going there. Dilation justice power emotions arguing attack hurt punch in the face injustice unfair treatment nonsense Step 4 Related Concept a) The concept of war is a good related concept of fighting and/or violence. B) War is a good related concept because anytime during a war, people fight for their country because they believe what they are participating in is right. Also, whenever countries engage in war, people are subjected to scenes of violence and witness horrific happenings, under the circumstances of war. C) Is war violence? Model Case: a) Barack (44) is a Lieutenant in the United States Army.
He is currently serving in he 14th division in Baghdad, Iraq. Tensions are high in the country as suicide bombings have escalated the past few days. Barack and his crew of five soldiers are driving along the main road in Baghdad, looking for suspicious activity. Barack notices a vehicle with a weird license plate that was not from Iraq. He and his crew decide to follow the car. While in pursuit, the suspicious car slows down. Barracks army vehicle catches up right behind it. Next thing that occurs is a bomb goes off and blows everybody in the vicinity into little pieces. ) This is a good example of a model case because the story illustrates the cruel ileitis of war. Gives a little insight into what goes on during times of war and battle. Lots of chaos and madness. Country enemy victory war suicide bomber destruction terrorists havoc Contrary Case: a) King Sultan (60) is the President of the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East. One fine day he is on his way to the most expensive hotel in the world, the Burr AY Arab. While on route, he receives word that the hotel has been bombed and casualties are in the hundreds.
A terrorist organization in South East Asia has already taken responsibility for the horrific event. As the leader of the country, King Sultan promises to bring those who are responsible to justice and face their crimes. The next day after the tragedy, King Sultan wages war on that terrorist group and plans to invade the country which originated the terrorists. B) This is a good example of a contrary case because King Sultan wants justice to be served to the culprits who terrorized his country and destroyed it. The killings of innocent civilians vacationing in his country will not be tolerated by the King.
It is an act of extreme violence that cannot be condoned. Outrage angry death defeat explosion innocent deaths gun bomb intolerable cruelty pain suffering Step 5 Invented Case a) Imagine a world where animals controlled the Earth. Lions were the kings and queens and tigers and panthers were their trusted ministers and secretaries. The ruthless animals had every single human being locked up in an enormous prison with a fighting cage in the center of it. In order for a human being to get their freedom, they had to fight a series of animals.
In any given day, a human could find themselves fighting against a bear, walrus or even a giraffe. Whichever animal a person landed was strictly based on their luck. If a human wins their eight, they go to the next round. If not, they become finger food to the very animal they were fighting. The only rule is there are no rules. Win by any means necessary to survive and live. B) i. This case is totally fabricated. Humans don’t fight animals in a stadium while their locked up ii. Does not mirror or parallel the real world because humans have animals locked up, not vice versa iii.
The case is relevant to the related concept because it involves fighting in very violent circumstances iv. It is not crazy v. The case can be visualized vi. Not true of some people, haven’t heard of a person fighting a bear inside a oiliest while locked up by animals vii. The case does not try to answer the conceptual question combat attacking Pam courage battle cage animal barbarian damage In]our gore kill or be killed Step 6 Social Context a) Megan (35) is a single mother. Her son, Rail is 15 years old and growing up quickly.
One Saturday night, she comes home after a long and hectic day from work. She walks into her son’s room and observes what is playing on the television. She asks her son what kind of nonsense he is watching. He replies he is watching the JIFF, which stands for ultimate fighting champion. Megan takes in en fight before she starts to judge her son and his choice of TV shows. The fight she watched, the winner knocks out his opponent with a devastating blow to the face which resulted in a lot of blood coming from the losers face. At this point, Megan is shocked and stunned.
As she is watching the knocked out fighter lying helplessly on the floor, she thinks to herself, is fighting violence? B) This is a good context to place the question in because Mean’s son is still a teenager and kids these days are easily influenced by what they watch on TV. For Megan, she thinks if her son continues to watch violence on TV then he might be alienable to act violent in everyday life. If they concluded yes: For Megan, fighting is violence because the outcome of a fight can have serious repercussions to one’s health and safety, as she witnesses on the television. They concluded no: Even though some fights are nasty and very gruesome, the AFC is considered a sport this day and age. Every sport has some aspect of violence and just simply an occupational hazard.

I play for the hometown team of Quadrangular. The soccer league in Mexico is notorious for being physical and having really aggressive players.
On the last day of the season, my team is trailing by 1 goal with only 10 minutes left to play. My team have benefited from some dangerous tackling by our opponents and we have been awarded a penalty, so I stepped up to take it. As I was preparing to shoot the ball, a fan from the crowd runs onto the field, approaches me and then throws a tomato at my face. Before I want to retaliate in front of 20,000 people and many more at home watching because I m angry and embarrassed, think to myself, “Is fighting violence. B) This is a good context to place the question in because I was attacked during a game which was unjustified. I was wondering if I retaliated, would it be such a bad thing because what happened to me was totally wrong and was embarrassed on live television. If I concluded yes: I would not want to retaliate against the person who attacked me with a tomato because as a professional athlete, we are role models for children and I would not want to send the wrong message to kids If I concluded no: Then I would have tackled the abusive fan before he got even originally close to me to spare me the embarrassment. Haring tackle unnecessary conduct throwing things throw down soccer fans sports society Step 8 Practical Implications a) Sports fans: would be on best behavior during games, especially soccer fans Religious leaders: would preach more about loving, not fighting under any circumstance Schools: there would be a drop off in suspensions due to less fighting, friendlier students Government: would advocate and participate in no Workplace: less fights in the workplace Family: more love and care towards each other instead of being angry and rutting each other TV: no more shows depicting violent behavior or fighting Movies: more movies about love and affection, romantic comedies would dominate box offices rather than action movies or any movie involving fights b) Schools: more fights between students, more bullying Religious leaders: would preach more violent and aggressive speeches Family: more fights between children and spouses TV: more shows will be about fighting and engage in violence Music: more aggressive, angrier music will be produced Society: will be less tolerant and quicker to physically attack each other at any even chance Sports: will be more physical and aggressive, resulting in more fights during games Government: will participate in more wars, resulting in more deaths c) The world of fighting is not violence is closer to our world in Toronto because our music is very provocative and sometimes really violent (rap, hip hop), our government is participating in different wars at the moment, movies are still violent and fighting in sports is still common.
