On June 9, 2008, thirty year old Travis Alexander was found murdered in his home in Mesa, Arizona. He had been stabbed twenty seven times, his throat slashed, and shot in the forehead by his ex girlfriend, Jodi Arias. On the day of the murder Arias claims she went to Travis’s house to see him and while taking pictures of him in the shower, she accidentally dropped his camera. From there Travis starts screaming at her and abusing her. Arias tells the court that she was only acting in self defence and that she was afraid for her life since she had been abused by this man for years. The details of this heinous murder do not match up with the evidence left at the scene of the crime, proving that Jodi Arias should receive
However, a ruling was made that forbade certain information to be publicized until after sentencing. After the sentence was passed down, a video of Jodi Arias’ strange behavior in the interrogation room was released to the public. The video had never been shown to the jury. In the video, Arias was reported to be “singing, laughing, talking to herself, and doing a twenty-second headstand.” She spoke to herself about inconsequential things, like lamenting her lack of makeup during the interrogation. A person who regrets something they’ve done, who is truly reticent of a mistake, should not giggle and be so flippant. (Pow) If a person is claiming self-defense, she should not lie and repeatedly change stories. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a fitting and accurate diagnosis, but it does not diminish the horror of the crime she committed. She changed her plea from guilty to not guilty, and then explained it was self-defense, and then again elaborated that it was a case of home invasion.(Pow) Nevertheless, throughout it all, Arias was only able to recall minimal details from the event. Sources claim she suffered from the diagnosis post-traumatic stress disorder, but that would not make light of the state of affairs. (Pow) The presiding judge stated, “The crime was especially cruel. It involved substantial planning and preparation…The defendant destroyed evidence… and went to great lengths to conceal her involvement.” (Kiefer) Ms. Arias tried to cover up her crime, but not because she knew what she did was

Timothy Robert Steele, a 35 year ago deranged man from Minnesota, was arrested on October 20, 2015 for beating his 84- year grandmother to death with a hammer. He later told the police he only did so because the voice in his head told him to do so.
Looking at the overview of this case in reference to Andrea Pia Yates; she experienced some psychological issues due to the fact that she had her first suicide attempt by taking an overdose of pills and was diagnosed with a major depressive disorder by the Methodist Hospital psychiatric; after being release she began to self-mutilate and refused to feed her children because she felt they were eating too much and she began to hallucinate; on July 20 she put a knife to her throat and begged her husband to let her die; and later she killed three out of five children by drowning them in the bathtub. The truth to the matter is I think she was a little more than just insane. She needed some serious help that she didn’t receive. She wanted to
Is justice always served. Midnight Assassin, written by Patricia Bryan and Thomas Wolf, tells the story of John Hossack’s murder, the trial of Margaret Hossack, and it brings the question. Who killed John Hossack? The evident fact that William Haines executed John Hossack is as barefaced as it gets.
Confessions are a large part of the justice system, they can make or break a reputation. In the court system, many confessions can change a person’s future. James Ochoa a 20-year-old was convicted of car theft when he was put in jail for his false confession. Just like Ochoa, Kathy Gonzales who was convicted of aiding and attempting murder falsely confessed to a judge. In the Crucible, it was common for people to falsely confess to save their family name or prevent them from being hanged. During the 21 century, false confessions still exist and cause the innocent to suffer.
What happened to Aileen Wuornos? Was she insane or was she severely damaged from her past? In this paper, I will argue how Aileen Wuornos became a killer based on her life and upbringing. She had experienced long-term abuse as a child, had been abandoned/having no emotional bond by her primary caregivers, and began “hooking” because she was desperate to survive. Was the first man she killed in self-defense or was she going through post-traumatic stress disorder based on the abuse of her childhood? I will explain the abuse she endured, attachment theory, and her PTSD with killing/claiming self-defense.

“In our everyday lives we are constantly endangered with violence rather that be from gangs, robbers, or rapist; it is rightfully just to believe that all methods of protecting ourselves is morally right” (NRA). In this modern society we can no longer use swords and arrows to keep the peace of our great nation. We the people of the Unites States must stand up for our 2nd Amendment that specifies the “rights of the people to keep and bear arms” to better protect ourselves by allowing mankind the full opportunity to carry a concealed handgun.
