The Murder Trial of Biggie Smalls Rathbone, William Unit 7 Assignment CJ 101 Wallace Biggie was one of the most powerful rappers before getting murdered in drive by shooting in March of 1997. At time he was killed the police had many theories of why he got murdered on that day. The police had multiple suspects about who did it but wasn’t sure of who or why they murdered Biggie Smalls. On that day Biggie was on his way to the hotel from the music party. When his SUV came up to the stop light, he could hear someone call his name, so he rolled his back window down to see who that’s when he was shot multiple times in the torso and then the suspects drove away from the murder.

I believe that psychopathic serial offenders like Jeffrey Dahmer are not capable of forming a conscience. If Jeffrey Dahmer murdered maybe one person in self-defense, it may be possible that he would have shown some remorse for the crime that he did. Although this crime took place in Wisconsin, it was a serious crime against society. Jeffrey Dahmer killed 17 innocent young African American men, and most of his victim were in their early twenties (O 'Meara, 2009). He would choose his victims at a location several blocks from his home, walk them to his house and offer them a laced drink mixed with a sleep aid.
The mixture of racism and guns is the main reason as to why an innocent child ended up being killed. The novel “The Baddest dog in Harlem” is very likely to have been inspired by the same incident that was the inspiration for the song “American Skin (41 shots)”. On February 4th 1999 Amadou Diallo, a 20 year old black immigrant, was shot dead by four police officers. The policemen suspected him of matching a profile of a man who had committed several rapes in the area.

Dennis Rader better known as the “BTK Killer” or the “BTK Strangler” terrorized the Wichita Kansas area from 1974 to 1991 by binding, torturing and killing (hence “BTK”) at least 10 victims in that period. For nearly two decades, Rader wasn’t even suspected until nearly fifteen years after his final victim was murdered. In 2005, well after the BTK case became an unsolved cold case with no leads whatsoever, Rader was suddenly a prime suspect. What made him became something of a suspect was because he began taunting the police, by initiating a series of communications with the media. Though the biggest deal for the prosecution was tracing contact information Rader inadvertently provided police on a computer floppy disk, once he was tracked they
Adnan Syed was convicted with first degree murder on February 26th, 2000 for killing his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee (Jones, 2016). Although on average one hundred and forty-nine people get convicted with crimes they did not commit (Ferner, 2016). Adnan may have been the ex-boyfriend, but many other people who testified their story makes it seem like he could be innocent and somebody else killed Hae. Other possible suspects include Jay, Mr.S, and someone not even mentioned in the podcast “Serial.” While there is no physical evidence tying any of them to the crime, others testimonies make it likely that any of them could have committed the crime. Adnan was Hae’s ex-boyfriend.
Two Palm Springs police officers were both shot and killed while responding to a public disturbance. John Felix, a twenty 6 year old resident of Palm Springs was the convicted suspect of the shooting, and deaths of Jose Gilbert Vega, 63, and Lesley Zerebny. When the officers arrived to the residence of John Felix, they tried to get him to comply with there orders to exit his home. After 10 minutes had past with no progress, and Felix opened fire on both the officers. Felix had said he would kill the officers, but the officers did not expect to be fired on behind the door.
I think his death was a shock for his family and unexpected event. Moreover, he died without doing any error. Based on what I read in The Other Wes Moore in introduction about one name, two fates, and compare it with an article “ 2 men arrested in shooting of NYPD officer, police say” in New York CNN Prokupecz, Sanchez, and Botelho explain that the police officers follow armed men, and the police officers was shot by the armed men. Also, the police officer weren’t in their work hour, and they did wear their bulletproof vests. Comparing this event with what happened this article the same as the book, but there is a different between them.
