Have you ever been blamed for something you did not do? After Abraham Lincoln 's assassination Stanton, the secretary of war, began to search for suspects that may have been involved in the assassination. One of whom was Mary Surratt a woman who was the mother of John Surratt Jr. and was the owner of the boarding house in H Street, Washington. Stanton claimed Mary as part of the conspiracy to kill Lincoln, and was given a death sentence for her crimes. Even though Mary Surratt was hanged she still deserved a better sentence as she did not get a fair trial against her.
The following argument is completely false and incorrect. Numerous pieces of shattered glass, as well as other broken materials, were covered in Mrs. Maloney’s fingerprints as stated by officers. Also, after an extensive examination, no fingerprints of anyone other than Mr. and Mrs. Maloney were found on the scene. Additionally, the neighbors also stated nobody other than Mr.Maloney had entered the house after 4:50 p.m. The defense will also claim that Patrick committed suicide rather than being murdered.
As a matter of fact, Lizzie burned a dress with ' 'paint ' ' on it after the murders(Burning That Dress, 1893). This shows that Lizzie most likely committed the crime because it may of not been paint. Futhermore, detective make sence when they say Emma had nothing to do with the murders, but Lizzie and Emma could have planned their parents death to get their father 's inheritence. In fact, the hatchet used in the murders could not be found in any local hardware-store(Their Murder Stole In, 1892). This means Emma could have given Lizzie the murder weapon.
Two axes were found in the home, and neither had a speck of blood (“Lizzie Borden on Trial” 14). As it were, there was not enough evidence to convict a killer, nor was there enough evidence to convict Lizzie Borden. She was declared not guilty (“Lizzie Borden on Trial”
With the lack of evidence left behind at the crime scene and the lack of technology in the 20s left the case unsolved. The Chicago Police Department was unable to pin the crime on their top suspect Al Capone. Even though Al Capone had a possible motive to kill the seven men there wasn’t enough evidence. Not only was they’re not enough evidence, Al Capone had a solid alibi stating that he was in Florida at the time the murder took place. The bullets were just not enough to pin Al Capones henchman or himself for the murder.
¨Mrs. Rogers, I had no doubt, had acted very largely under the influence of her husband.¨(Christie, 243) With this we can tell that not only did Thomas kill an old lady for money but forced his wife, most likely threatened her or even blackmailed her, to do the dirty work. Thomas did two awful things, two illegal things, two things that need justice to be served. Emily Brent, another character that some believe deserves to be on the island and justice should be served. Emily Brent was taking care of a young girl who got pregnant before marriage, which is against what Emily believes in so she kicked her out of her home, which then the young girl drowned herself.
No medical evidence was ever collected or shown to prove that the crime ever took place. On the night after the assault, Mayella Ewell was never seen be a doctor. She was never examined to prove that Tom Robinson did anything to her. Mayella stated that she was beaten that night, so she should have gone to the doctor to get checked out. There is no proof of any crime, so there should not have been a guilty verdict.
The Salem Witch Trials, as portrayed by The Crucible, were a terrifying and confusing time. It’s hard to say who caused this whole debacle, but it was most likely Abigail Williams. Because of her lies about her involvement with the girls in the forest, or her blatant manipulation of others to pull blame off of herself and onto other. Because of this, and her treachery, the Salem Witch Trials spiralled into the chaos that it is known for today. Without her, the Salem Witch Trials may have been less horrifying than it is known for today, and the town better off.
In Susan Glaspell's 1916 play ‘Trifles”, the absent character, Minnie Wright is suspected of killing her husband, though there is no clear-cut motive available to the County Attorney or Sheriff. We are introduced to both the crime and the suspect through the eyes of those present to investigate the crime and the wives there to gather personal items for her. In the statement given by Hale, we are advised that Mrs. Wright seems incoherent or dazed upon his encounter with her. Hale further states, when he inquired of her husband, Mrs, Wright showed no emotion or concern at the notification of her husband’s death. Hale’s description of Minnie Wright sitting in a chair emotionless, rocking and pleating an apron while her dead husband lay in bed with a rope around his neck suggests that there are unseen factors at the root of the crime.
This shows that Banquo could not be an apparation of any sort since no one but Macbeth saw him. The audience is supposed to accept Banquo's ghost as a fantasy representing Macbeth's guilty conscience. This is proven by the fact that no one but Macbeth even saw the ghost. Macbeth is the only one, besides the murderers, who even knew of Banquo's murder. Macbeth is guilty about killing his friend Banquo and is therefore losing his mind by seeing visions of his ghost when it is really not there at all.
No one saw Adnan get in Hae 's car. No one in public saw the two together when the prosecution is trying to place them together. The claims aren 't even really contradictory. No one is saying Adnan got in Hae 's car. The only supporting piece to his possible guilt would be that he asked for a ride.
In the Crucible there are no actual dates of when the witch trials actually took place. Since the story is taking place in the days of early settlement the story can not be proven or disproven. But, since the fear of witches and the devil was real in those times then I can say that Salem Witch Trials might have happened, but , this specific set of incidents did not. According to act one in the crucible “ But Betty collapses in her hands and lies inert on the bed. (I.113-132)” this quote shows how this story is non-fiction because of the detailed words.
Officers visited the Mapp home and requested entry, but were denied. Mapp demanded a warrant to be presented if the officers wished to search her home. Two officers left and then returned sometime later with what they identified as a search warrant. Mapp took the warrant, which was wrestled from her. During the search they officers did not find the bombing suspect or any illegal betting equipment.
Again, Danforth states that no person other than the accused and the accuser may input evidence on the crime. Thus, no other persons, evidence, or influences, may interfere with the trial. The same does not apply to McCarthyism, when published works, such as The Crucible, were there to make aware of the mass, unrationalized hysteria of the decade. In this there is fault due to there not being any other sources of information. Finally, people are hanged for witchcraft, but not for being a
Kurose was murdered!Kurose was the Vice-Principal of Wai’anae High School and was liked by many and was thought of as kind and thoughtful, but there were a few teachers who thought differently.Oberlander, Hansen, Moriwaki and Ratcliffe are the suspects in this case. He was stabbed several times and his dismembered body was found in a classroom submerged in an ice bucket. An autopsy suggests that he was murdered between 14:45 and 15:30. Moriwaki is the murderer because she had the motive, opportunity and an accomplice. However, some might say that Moriwaki couldn’t be the murderer because she had an alibi.
