I don't think the Tucks are criminals. I think this because they are kidnapping her to warn her about the drinking water. It is possible to kidnap someone for a good reason because you could be trying to save them from something dangerous. This is why I think you could kidnap someone without being a criminal.
(sorry i pressed submit by mistake) I think it is possible to kidnap someone for a good reason because that could keep them safe. Just like Winnie Foster, they had to whisk her away before she drank the water because then she would never see the highlights of being an adult. They had to kidnap her because they didn't want anyone to hear about the water.
no it does not make them crimanals.
Nice thought but no not the right answer
I think what the Tuck's did was right and they are not criminals because its for the safety of their sacred water. If everyone found out, and Winnie made a big scene, everyone would live forever,and that could turn out awful. This is why I don't think the Tuck's are criminals.
I think that it is not a crime that the Tucks kidnapped Winnie Foster because if they didn't take her far enough from home then Winnie wouldn't get older and she wouldn't know what was going on. It is possible to do something wrong for a good reason because you could just be doing something for their own safety. Like what happened to Winnie was for her own safety.
I don't think the Tucks are criminals. I don't think their criminals because they are trying to tell her that if she drinks from the water she will live forever. It is possible to do something wrong for a really good reason. For example, if someone you love is starving and you steal a piece of bread its not a crime because its a human life verses a piece of bread.
The Tucks are not criminals. They tried to warn her but she wouldn't listen. They where doing this for her own good, they didn't want her to live forever like they have to. It's possible to do a crime for a good reason if it's for saving someone's life. This is why I think they are not criminals.
I don't think that it was a crime because the tucks were just trying to protect Winnie from drinking from the water other wise is they didn't try and tell her its a bad mistake then she could regret from drinking from the water f
i think that it is possible to do a bad thing for a good reason because sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to protect whoever you are protecting to keep them safe
I think it's not a crime because the tucks had their reasons where as a criminal does not think twice. Another reason I have is that the explained everything and had no weapon or object to hurt Winnie. This is why I think its not a crime but a rescue.
I think its possible to do something bad for a good reason as long as you did not start sed event or if its a fighting deal as long as you didn't hit first
srry thought the whole #2 thing was automatic so this is my second one
I think it is possible to kidnapp someone for a good reason and in this case they kidnapped winne to warn her about the water.
I do not think this makes the Tucks criminals. They had to protect Winnie so she wouldn't stay a little girl forever.
It is possible to do something wrong for a good reason. They had to save her from drinking the water. Maybe kidnapping was not the best way to do this, but it saved her from having to be young forever.
i think its not a crime because the tucks just wanted to save winnie from drinking the water. If the tucks didnt stop winnie, winnie could have died from the dirty water
I don't think this makes the Tucks criminals. They were trying to keep Winnie safe in kidnapping her.
Thus, it is possible to do something wrong for a good reason. They should have avoided kidnapping Winnie at all costs, but they were just trying to help.
The tucks really didn't kidnap Winnie. they did for her own safety. They also tried to warn her but she didn't listen. The tucks did it because they didn't want her to live forever like they are. It's also possible to kidnap for a good reason, such as keeping them for dangerous thing.
I think what the Tucks did was right. They are not criminals. They kidnapped Winnie to keep her safe. The Tucks had a good reason for doing what they did. Winnie was safe. I think you can do something wrong if no one gets hurt and you have a good reason for doing it.
Personally, to me, I am quite different compared to all your thought-provoking responses, but I do believe that kidnapping is such an illegal crime in which happens to millions of children every year, according to the FBI. Sometimes this may be traumatic, which is quite what I have discovered in the book; ''Tuck Everlasting'', when Winnie, the girl in which still kidnapped, wanted to run away. But of course, a frog was the only creature to ''listen'' to Winnie's thoughts. On the contrary, she doesn't know where her original family is. To a psychologist's point of view, any reasonable person would probably not steal someone's child to explain such ''nonsense'', in which no one else will believe. Alas, Mae Tuck actually saved Winnie's life from not drinking that water, so she has a very good reason to argue to her defense against the kidnap. But to steal someone's child over it? Please. To my perspective, they may not seem much like criminals, BUT THEY STILL ARE; or maybe were. Think Hansel and Gretel. A childish story that brings an important life lesson. DO NOT TRUST EVERYONE. Alas, maybe they will make up for the happening, and Winnie will forgive Mae Tuck. That is my perspective on Mae Tuck.
I think the Tucks didn't kidnap Winnie, they just did it to protect her. She saw Jesse drink from the spring, and she didn't have any idea about the whole "never get older" thing, and the Tucks didn't want her telling anyone about the spring. This is why it doesn't make them criminals.
Yes it is possible to do something wrong for a good reason. The Tucks just wanted to save Winnie from staying the same age forever.
I don't think that the Tucks are criminals. They probably only kidnapped Winnie to keep her safe.Yes it is possible to do something wrong for a good reason but they still should have avoided doing it.
I think that the Tucks kidnapping Winnie isn't a crime because they did it to protect and prevent Winnie from making the same bad choices that they made, changing their lives and having everyone think badly of them. It is possible to do something wrong for a good reason because they weren't exactly doing anything wrong. I think it is the opposite because they were actually protecting her from making bad choices and follow the same path as the Tucks horrible, yet good, life.
I don't think the Tuck's are criminals.
The only reason they kidnapped Winnie was so they could warn her about the spring in the wood.
They kidnapped her for a good reason not to hurt her in any way.
I think it is okay to do something wrong for a good reason because you could be helping or warning them in some way even if the thing you are doing is bad
I think the Tuck's aren't criminals, because they only kidnapped Winnie Foster to prevent her from drinking from the spring and be permanently burdened of never aging, also the Tucks wanted to protect their secret and prevent the world from knowing there secrets. I think it's okay to do something wrong for a good reason because if they hadn't done that, then her life would've been permanently changed just like what happened to the Tucks whever she liked it or not.
It does not make them criminals because they didn't intend to harm her. It's possible for someone to do a bad thing for a good reason if they aren't hurting or stealing from anyone
I personally think the Tucks aren't criminals because they did it for the best, they did it because they didn't want Winnie drinking the magical water and becoming immortal and they wanted to explain everything to her so she would understand and keep the secret between them.They also didn't really "kidnap" her because they didn't do anything bad to her.
I kind of have mixed feelings. In a way, they are and aren't criminals. They are criminals in the sense that they could have told her it all in the wood, and not have to take her away, but they aren't criminals in the sense that it could have actually saved Winnie Foster's life if the Tucks had not come and if she drank from the eternal spring (that is what I will be referring to instead of spring). That was why I think the Tucks are both criminals and innocent.
I also think that the Tucks didn't want Winnie to make the bad choices they made 87 years ago. They also didn't want Winnie to face the challenges they faved when they became immortal, like watching the people around you age and have families, also as said in the book Miles' or Jesse's (don't really remember) family left him because they thought that either of them was captured by the devil or that it was witch craft or a curse. Too, Winnie wasn't frightened when she was "captued" by the Tucks, she understood, she felt good around them especially Jesse and when she first met Mr. Tuck he was very nice and polite. And Winnie wasn't the one pleading for freedom and mercy, Mae Tuck was. They too, promised that Winnie would be home the next day.
I don't think the Tucks are criminals because they kidnapped Winnie to save her from drinking the water. The reason they did not want her to drink the water was because it stops all new growth and won't let you age. I don't know why they had to kidnap her and they could not just say "don't drink from the well" and explain why she could not drink from the well.
I don't think this makes them criminals because they had a very good reason to kidnap her. Winnie figured out a secret that the Tucks could never tell anyone and they couldn't trust that Winnie wouldn't tell anyone. I think it is OK to do something wrong for a very good reason. If something awful happens and you have to do something awful to fix it I think it is OK to do that awful thing. It is OK for the Tucks to do it because of the first thing I said about how they could never tell anybody. That is what I think about the story we are reading, Tuck Everlasting.
They also kidnapped her to stop her from drinking the water and making a terrible mistake. It was fine to kidnap her because something terrible would have happened to her if she had a drink of the immortality water.
Yes kidnapping is a crime but that doesn't always make the person a criminal.That is because in the book Tuck Everlasting the Tucks took Winnie away for a good reason that reason could save them to stay in there home. The reason is if she were to drink that water she could have stayed that age forever and never get to live life all the way through it because the water that is there lets the people that drink it live forever the age that they drink it at. It is possible to do something wrong for a really good reason. That is because you could break all the rules for something important so someone doesn't get hurt. Like if Winnie were able to drink the water that made her not grow old then her family will tell the whole town and go for the Tuck family.
Yes, kidnapping is a crime, but the reason they did it is not a crime at all. The Tucks were just trying to keep Winnie safe from being immortal at such a young age. Some people kidnap children just for revenge or for ransom, but the Tucks were just doing their duty. It is possible to do something bad for a good reason only because you can try to protect a child from harm, like the Tucks. Let's say that a divorced couple had a child. The mom was mean to the child. The dad never got to see the child, but if he did, he would be the best father ever. So, he sneaks into the house and kidnaps the little child so thet the wife could no longer be mean to him.
I have two opinions to this situation the first one is 1. I thought that it is wrong to kidnap a child 2. I also thought that if you kidnapped a child it has to be for a good reason. In Tuck Everlasting, Winnie was about to drink the water but someone from the tuck family stopped her by kidnapping her.
I don't think the Tucks were commiting a crime because they just kidnapped her to save her from the water. They did also say that they were going to bring her back so that is why I don't think the Tucks were committing a crime.
aw I loved this book.
never a dull moment in mr. bunel's class (:
Hey mr bunel
Great book! haha miss this class!
No I don't think that they are because they were only trying to protect them selves
no because they did not hurt her or force her into labor. They just wanted to tell her so she could understand...
Hi mr. bunel
