The story of Ronald Gene Simmons. On the 22nd of December, 1987 the worst mass murder in Arkansas history took place. A man by the name of Ronald Gene Simmons went on a killing spree. He started off by killing his wife, kids, and his three year old granddaughter, but it didn’t stop there. He killed his family and quite a few harmless townspeople because he went insane, because why else would you kill harmless people?
He tells a farfetched story, so that no one suspects him. According to chapter 7, page 90, it states, “I stole all his money...found he cheated on his entrance tests to Devon and...blackmailed his parents about that...made love to his sister in Mr. Ludsbury’s study”. While he was
There are times in life where people do commit a small mistake, or a huge crime, but what really matters is if one will listen to their conscience. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the main character lives with an old man who has an eye that “resembled that of a vulture--a pale blue eye, with a film over it.” The story revolves around the main character’s obsession over the eye, and how he got rid of it-- by murdering the old man. Towards the end of the story, the young man confesses to the police about his insane stunt after they searched his house. In “The Tell-Tale Heart,” Edgar Allan Poe focused on having the reader know more than the secondary character, using description, and using a first-person narrator, to build suspense. Edgar Allan Poe made sure the reader knew more than the secondary character in his short story to build suspense.
Another guy I knew really did threaten to have his personal enemies killed by hired gunmen after the war” (Vonnegut 1). Paul Lazzaro, the new identity given to an actual fellow POW, tells Billy that anyone who tries to touch him should kill him, lest Lazzaro have them killed in return (Vonnegut 175). Billy, after surviving the dreadful events of the novel that far, was just as traumatized by Lazzaro’s story of revenge against a dog. Similarly, he later reminisces about “the poor old high school teacher, Edgar Derby,” who was caught “with a teapot he had taken from the catacombs” before being “tried and shot” (Vonnegut 274). These parallels of Pilgrim and Vonnegut highlight the events of both men 's lives,
Even with more than enough evidence to support Tom Robinson’s claim, the all-white jury declares Tom Robinson as guilty. The ruling explains to Scout and Jem that their town is not a perfect little place, but it’s full of prejudice and unjust beings. One night, while on the way home from school, Jem and Scout are attacked by a mysterious man who is actually Bob Ewell. From his house, Boo Radley witnesses the attempted murder and kills Bob Ewell with a kitchen knife. Atticus and the town’s sheriff, Heck Tate, decide to hide the fact that Boo Radley saved the children.
In Cold Blood It all started on the night of November 14, 1959, when two young men came to Holcomb, Kansas. They first came to rob the Clutters, but when finding there was not ten thousand dollars in the house like they were told, they thoughtlessly killed all four of them, for only forty bucks and a little radio. The men were finally caught, but forced to stand on trial with people who already want the two men dead, which puts the town in favor of capital punishment, before the trial had even started. The two young men, Dick Hickock and Perry Smith, were sentenced to the death penalty. The book In Cold Blood, I believe, is for the capital punishment.
Outsiders Debate Paragraph- Defence Attorney On the night of the crime, Johnny Cade and Ponyboy Curtis were at the park late at night.

Williams’s representative (Anon, 2012), it was plausible that suspects broke into the flat through skylight windows as several of the items left by the forensic team was moved (Stanton, 2015).

He saw a young suicide bomber, no older than 12 years old, blow himself up in efforts to kill the American soldiers in that area. Josh was hit in the head with powerful debris which caused him to need to be sent back home. I remember seeing him at my grandparents’ wedding, and he was antisocial, quiet, and overall, not the Josh everyone knew and loved. Even after being involved in a traumatizing experience like that, he is a lucky one. There are people who have experienced far worse and who have faced death to protect their country.
The death of his father, the effect it had on Louise Little and him being discouraged by his teacher to pursue his dream job are all shown in the movie and are events that occurred in reality. The verdict stated that Earl Little took his own life by taking a hammer and bashing it in the back of his own head; he then placed himself on the railroad, which resulted in his own death, the movie does not specify who really killed Malcolm’s father. Just like in reality, it is not proven, but highly likely that he was murdered by the Ku Klux Klan since he did receive multiple death threats from them; however the police officially identified his death as a suicide. The movie also showed Malcolm’s mother, Louise Little, in a mental institution after several years from the death of her husband; this event sadly took place in real life too. Louise was unable to recover from the shock of her husband’s death and was placed in a mental hospital in 1937.
