One theme in my book at this point is that even though people portray being hard headed and show no feeling to the average person, they still have hearts and emotions. Ethan is a middle aged man who is a chief of the police department. However, he is very strict and expects his officers to never let their emotions get in the middle of their job. With this being said, he becomes hypocritical because he goes to a scene where his father is the victim, and he begins to act through emotion rather than logic. This not only gets him injured but also his father. I relate this action to a lot of fathers or men in general in the real world. No man likes to cry in front of others because it makes him "less manly". I disagree with this statement, but it is the normal societal view. Ethan portrays a average real world male.
