The opening scene in both texts is almost the same; they start out with a dead victim. Sue Dibney from Identity Crisis has been burnt to death, and the Comedian was plunged out of a window. As the plot progresses, both murders are investigated only to find that the hero, Ozymandias murdered The Comedian in order to progress with his plans of peace and Jean Lording killed Sue Dibny after she has been raped by Dr. Light. The context behind rape is a similar eventing that occurs in both texts, but is approached differently within The Watchmen. In The Watchmen, The Comedian rapes Sally, but is not punished for his crime and only murdered for being in the way of Ozymandias’ plans to prevent World War III.
When someone reads a book they often want to watch the movie once it has been created. Most of the time they expect the movie to follow the same story line, and they hope it will be what they pictured while reading the book. However, many books and movies have more differences than similarities; this is the case of Disney’s movie, The Little Mermaid, and Hans Andersen’s book, The Little Mermaid. The book was written over one-hundred years before the movie was created, and it has a more dark and painful background to the story. The movie is full of color and fun personalities.
Jeffrey Dahmer was a famous murderer from 1978 until 1991. During the time he was free he killed seventeen men by meeting them at gay bars, bus stops, and other places, promising them sex or money if they followed him home. Upon arriving to his house Jeffrey would give them drugs that were laced with alcohol before suffocating them to death. He would take pictures of the men after he killed them and proceeded to have sexual intercourse with their dead bodies.

Think about how often people get arrested and how often trials are held every year, let alone everyday. Oftentimes, innocent people are accused and charged for a crime that wasn’t there fault. This was the case for Adnan Syed, an innocent guy who was put in jail for a murder case. On January 13, 1999, Hae Min Lee was murdered at the age of 17. The evidence for this case was very unexplainable, but of course, the state went after Hae’s ex-boyfriend Adnan who really had nothing to do with the murder.
Edmund Kemper/David Berkowitz The murder cases of Edmund Kemper and David Berkowitz have many differences and a surprising number of similarities. These two cases can be compared and contrasted by looking at how they both had a violent childhood, they both used a gun to kill their victims, and they were both found guilty on many counts of murder.

The second narrative of a violent crime came from Paul Bernardo in his first interview with the police after his life sentence. Paul Bernardo is known as the Scarborough rapist who was convicted of killing two schoolgirls, Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy, and almost twenty sexual assaults.

In the story The Stranger by Albert Camus, Meursault, the absurd hero is put on trial. Meursault is put on trial first of all for his senseless murder, but that is not the only reason. The main reason he was put on trial, was for his Maman’s death and his act of senselessness. From Meursault 's point of view we see that the bailiff questions people like Perez Maman’s fiance. The bailiff asked Perez, “Had [you] at least seen [him] cry?”(Camus 91).
He was found guilty because of a murder case of his friend Perry. The evidence that convicted James was three hair samples that found in James 's van, the RCMP said they were Harder 's.

Chain of evidence is a string of events which, when viewed in sequence, account for the actions of a person during a particular period of time or the location of a piece of evidence during a specified time period. It is usually associated with criminal cases. John Floyd was charged for the murders of William Hines and Rodney Robinson at a bench trial before Judge Jerome Winsberg in January 1982. Mr. Hines and Mr. Robinson were murdered the same way on Thanksgiving in 1980 within a mile apart from each other. Both of the victims were both homo-sexual who apparently had consensual sex with their killer before being stabbed to death in the neck and torso.
The book “Miracle at Midway” written by Charles Mercer really fascinated me about the Battle of Midway.

This book was approximately 150 pages and included many pictures that were very familiar to what the reader was imagining in their own head. The author Charles Mercer served as an intelligence officer in the Pacific. He then was called to active duty in the Korean War.
When comparing Max Brooks’ novel World War Z and the movie World War Z, it is clear to see that there are numerous similarities and differences. Each story revolves around a zombie outbreak that originated in a single person and spread across the world, but there are unquestionably more differences. To begin, the overall plot is almost completely altered. They are quite unique because of the setup; the book contains individual perspectives from people around the world, while the movie only focuses on Brad Pitt’s experiences. Another difference is the endings; the movie finds a solution, and the book just copes with the zombie problem.
