His plans were well executed with the help of the loyal people he has been acquainted with, which in the end results with many successful jail escapes. Dillinger’s escape from the Crown Point jail has become well known due to his plan of escape. Within Moreno’s novel, he states, “ Within a few weeks of his arrest... Dillinger escaped from the Crown Point jail using a fake wooden gun”. (Citation 2, p 95) Similar to his other jailbreaks, Dillinger carefully planned out his escape and waited for the right moment to execute his plan. Determined and clever minded, Dillinger tricked the guards into believing he was in possession of a real gun and as his plan unfolded, he successfully escaped the so called escape proof Crown Point jail.
On January 25, 1947, Al Capone died in his home, surrounded by his family. He wаs buried аt Mount Carmel Cemetery in Hillside, Illinois. Most people know Al Capone as the “untouchable” Chicago gangster who spent many years in prison. I personally know that there is more to Al Capone than just being a gangster. When people think of gangsters they think of all the negative things.
Alex King killed his father at the age of 13, he got only 7 years in prison. Once he was out, he got into a car accident and ran from authority going back into the system.

Brady case. It was a very similar case to Gideon's that had occurred twenty years earlier. Betts was charged with robbery in Maryland.

Modern sentencing practices are outrageous and out of control. People go to prison for 162 years for stealing a car or 25 to life just for simply making a mistake of leaving their child in the car for no longer than 20 minutes without killing or harming the child. Even the innocent get sentenced major years for crimes they didn’t even commit. Lately sentencing has been crazy, so at this point in time sentence reforming is relevant in this case. To begin with, sentence reforming needs to take place because people are getting way to many years for petty crimes they didn't commit.

Holding Police Accountable for their Killings of Unarmed People of Color Fruitvale Bart Station is where I begin and end my day. The infamous platform in Oakland, California where bart police murdered Oscar Grant, a fully restrained unarmed African American who was celebrating New Year 's Day with his friends and girlfriend. Johannes Mehserle, the police officer involved in the shooting was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Thus, having to spend the minimum two years in prison but being he had time served he only would only spend seven months in jail with possible bail. Murder?
I don’t believe a person should be convicted of a crime based only on circumstantial evidence because I don’t think it’s fair for the victim. The victim might not have all the evidence of what happened to them but they know that it really happened or maybe there isn’t any witnesses but the victim. For example, in Los Angeles on January 18, 1991 a man named Donald Sarpy who was putting his
