He shows how he feels about the whole case and how the boys were falsely accused. He focused on how the boys’ “innocence never go the attention that their guilt did” (Wilder). These boys were guilty from the very beginning until proven innocent thirteen years after the crime was committed. Usually it’s the other way around and a person is innocent until proven guilty. The public was so caught up in the prejudice of the case and just assumed since there was a high crime rate in black and Hispanic boys that they had to have done it.
In the quote Beowulf is boasting and smack talking and Grendel doesn 't do this much at all. So this is clearly conveying in my opinion that that Beowulf has a chance to stop the fighting and madness but he continues to boast and stir Grendel up. The final reason that the humans are the real animals is that in the novel it states, “All the bands did the same thing. In time I began to be more amused than revolted by what they threatened. It didn 't matter to me
“Studies show implicit biases lead many of us to see innocent Black children as guilty adults (Johnson).” The media tends to depict young victims of colour as older than they actually are. For example, twelve year old Tamir rice was murdered by the police while he was playing with his toy gun. Although Tamir was the victim in this case, the news reports continuously refer to him as “young man” and mention how he was “big for his age”. The image that the media chooses to use in their stories on how people view criminals and suspects. White victims and even white suspects, are often shown in positive images such as graduation pictures or family photos.
The West Memphis Three was a trail convicting three teenagers: Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley of killing three little boys; Michael Moore, Stevie Branch, and Chris Byers. This trail was considered to be a satanic ritual because Damien Echols wasn’t considered normal to the other members of society in his town. He did “dabble in many religions” and Satanism being one with admiring photos of torture and death, but it was not a satanic ritual. The court used members that were far removed from any alleged "Satanic Panic" in West Memphis to give the defendants a better shot at a fair trial and unbiased juries. Damien Echols was sentenced to solitary confinement for eight years from his 20 years in prison.

." In my own opinion I do not believe that Gault had committed such a crime that deserved the kind of punishment he was sentenced. He was sentenced to spend the length of his minority, until 21, in a State Industrial School. Gault and his friend had prank called a women and harassed her by making crude and lewd comments to her, which is completely wrong of them to do, but sentencing a minor to a State Industrial School until the age of 21 is a bit of a long sentence for that sort of crime. I do think him and his friend committed a crime by calling that women, but a misdemeanor at the most.
