Simpson was then also accepted into the hall of fame in 1985. OJ also divorced his first wife in 1979, and his second wife in 1992.

After evidence was revealed OJ Simpson was suspected of the Murder, but he pleaded “Absolutely, Positively,100%, not guilty”(para)(O.J. Simpson Biography). What really happened during this trial, What went wrong, How was OJ Simpson not convicted?
His sentence is changed from manslaughter and he has now been sentenced to 18-20 years in prison for manslaughter, followed by four to five years in prison for illegal possession of a firearm. (Ryan, 2013) During a trial, the evidence is again presented to a court of law or a jury. Being sentenced to Capital Punishment is very unlikely to happen for Burke, as the state of Massachusetts has abolished Capital Punishment and only uses it in very severe cases where the suspect is tried federally (McCarthy, 2014) instead of regionally, like the Boston Bomber Case. Burke most likely got this sentence, because he pleaded guilty, possibly after enough evidence was gathered to prove his guilt and thereby “has taken responsibility for shooting the victim, resulting in his death, over what appears to have been a dispute about money” (Boston.com, 2013)

Elements of UC Regents v. Bakke UC Regents v Bakke helped affirm the use of having affirmative action when applying to colleges and when college decisions were made. Bakke was under the belief that he was being excluded because of his race. Sixteen of Hundred seats in the entering class were for minorities. Bakke was denied admission to the medical school for University of California Davis, though his MCAT and GPA score were much higher than the minority applicants
After establishing his own credibility, Davis makes readers question Branch’s integrity. Davis begins his argument by challenging Branch’s trustworthiness. He later provides an example of the information Branch lacked to mention in his article, writing “some 88 percent of the top football programs lose money for their universities -- and that doesn't even include the reams of cash the schools are spending on the so-called nonrevenue sports. Those are some basic, salient facts, but you won't find them anywhere in Branch's 15,000-word opus” (Davis 300). This information when left out of Branch’s article provides a one sided view, where the audience is misinformed of what is fact and what is
world moves, and it has never yet taken a great moral or social step forward and afterwards retraced its step.’ Five years later, the Twenty-First Amendment broke the Eighteenth Amendment’s record speed for ratification…”(pg.233) Many reasons were given as to why the Eighteenth Amendment was revoked. Mostly because it was more tearing the country down rather than building the country up and America is a country that looks towards the future in moving forward in developing the nation to make it the best country in the world. McGirr concludes onto multiple different points onto why the government revoked the amendment.

In 1992, a retrial found she was not guilty. In this case Sabrina was able to escape her execution. Another case involving the death penalty took place in 1992; Rodger Keith Coleman was executed in Virginia, even though all evidence pointed to another person as the murderer. The real murderer got away with this crime while an innocent man had to die for a crime he did not commit. In Canada, if we had the death penalty many innocent people here too, would face the death penalty for a crime they did not commit.
Dozens of students stand in protest in Florida for their peers who were silenced last week by a shooter who entered their high school and shot more than fifteen students and teachers combined. After the Sandy Hook massacre, you would have thought the legislation would act upon gun control; however, nothing has been done. Thousands of Americans today stand outside the Supreme Court in hopes of stricter gun laws to be activated upon, but what they don’t acknowledge is the fact that stricter gun laws are just the beginning. To suppress this steep hill of school massacres, legislation needs to not only advance in stricter gun laws, but support the mentally unstable, as well.
The fight for payment of college athletes has not been quick one as more and more issues keep popping up. The NCAA has never allowed payment of its athletes, but small steps towards the overall goal has questioned the NCAA’s past. Its’ decisions has stayed constant since its founding in 1906. The first issue in this decision would not occur until 1952 when the NCAA ruled to give The University of Kentucky the ‘death penalty’ for paying their athletes. This ‘death penalty’ is a one year program ban from participation, the harshest penalty the NCAA can give.

She was held responsible for the death of Walter, and despite the fact that Sabrina was only a teenager at the time; the judge and the court sentenced her to sustain lethal injection. Sabrina Butler did not testify at the trail. With the aids from her mother and a volunteer lawyer, Sabrina prepared an appeal with the Supreme Court of Mississippi on several bases two years later.
The Penn State football scandal rocked the sports world and dominated the headlines for months and months. The penalties placed upon Penn State are beyond anything that has ever been seen before in college athletics. I believe that all the penalties affecting the present and future football program and completely just. Although, I do not think that it is okay to punish the players of those who were not on the team from 1998-2011. The players after 2011 had nothing to repulsive acts by Jerry Sandusky or the cover-up that occurred with the Penn State Office.
According to Fox Sports, this has been a law for at least 10 years. If a player gets fresh out of high school and then has to wait for 3 years, then that player is probably going to lose his/her talent with a sport. Also, people say that college is to much money. A basic degree in college is about $200,000. Most people don’t have that kind of money, making them in debt.
