This murder occurred in October 6, 1921, in Madison, New Jersey. This murderer only did harm to one victim and one only. Twelve year old Janet Lawrence was discovered in the kluxen woods by local people. The people were shocked when they discovered her wounds. “Janet Lawrence had been stabbed 25 times, and her throat had been slashed.”
No evidence could directly link Lizzie to the murders. On June 20, 1893, after only an hour and a half of consideration, the jury decided Lizzie Borden was not guilty. She was therefore acquitted of the crimes. After inheriting quite a large sum, the Borden sisters bought a house in the high society part of town where they lived together for many years. In 1905 Emma Borden suddenly moves away and the sisters never see each other ever again.
Her sisters disappeared and she was left alone. No one in her father family wanted her because she was really darken and she was born bakini- underweight for a baby and ever sickly. ( Díaz,2008,pg 251-252). Even though many would believe that the fuku is the protagonist, it is clear that Oscar is the true representation of a protagonist because he is continuously judged because of his unexciting lifestyle and his lack in
As Andrew Jackson slowly rose to the complete power of president, controversy over his motives arose as well. Born in 1767 in South Carolina to a poverty-ridden family and an absent father, Jackson became one of the most debated presidents ever. His hot temper and self-reliance seemed to appeal to the people, yet his inability to take criticism and advice did not go unnoticed by the country’s government. To the bare eye he was a war hero, but if you dug deeper, you would discover he was a murderer, he was the common people’s choice, yet he seemed to not care about any other race besides his own. With these opposing characteristics, Jackson became the center of many debates and conflicts, hero or villain?
JonBenet was in the spotlight for most of her life, and ironically her mysterious death was the same. Although, many pieces of the murder are still unknown, the facts are clear: JonBenet was harshly killed in her Boulder, Colorado house on December 25, 1996.

First off, lets start off with Adnan’s alibi and what he was doing after school at the time of Hae’s murder. In the beginning of the time Adnan spent in jail, Adnan received letters from a girl called Aisah McClain. Let me just say first that Aisah and Adnan weren 't best friends or played important roles in each other’s lives, at all. Aisah McClain had nothing to benefit from writing these letters to Adnan. These letters indicate that Aisah had seen Adnan in the library right across
oneself in a certain way. The community saw Emily as a sheltered woman because her father felt that no male was good enough for Emily. They believed she was lost after her father’s death, using a lower class male like Homer to surpass the hurt she felt. In all, Emily was neither of those things. Emily murdering Homer had everything to do with the revenge.
In the courtroom here on Tuesday, the current district attorney, Johnson Britt (no relation to the original prosecutor), citing his obligation to “seek justice,” not simply gain convictions, said he would not try to prosecute the men again because the state “does not have a case.” Mr. McCollum was 19 and Mr. Brown was 15 when they were picked up by the police in Red Springs, a town of fewer than 4,000 people in the southern part of the state, on the night of Sept. 28, 1983. The officers were investigating the murder of Sabrina Buie, 11, who had been raped and suffocated with her underwear crammed down her throat, her body left in a soybean field. No physical evidence tied Mr. McCollum or Mr. Brown, both African-American, as was the victim, to the crime.
Waiting in a prison cell for many years, an inmate in death row doesn’t know when his life will come to an end. This is a law under the U.S. government that is allowed to kill people who have committed a crime that’s grave enough. If someone commits a capital crime, they will be punished legally under the law. Taking a rope to the neck, or charging volts to the brain, it’s what people are fighting against today. Organizations are taking action against the death penalty by researching, publishing, and exposing facts whenever officials want to abuse their power with the law.

To begin, I will talk about some of the major impacts that Richard Murphy had on the lives of others. Richard Murphy “founded the Rheedlen Center for Children and Families, now known as the Harlem Children’s Zone, which serves 12,000 youth and their families each year and is being replicated across the country as Promise Neighborhoods.” (huffingtonpost.com) He created the Beacon Schools in New York. This program turned school buildings into community centers after school hours.
The threat of Repercussions The threat of repercussions prokoke fear and, therfore, a reaction of obedience in many individuals. The impact of having set ramifications for misbehavior is crucial to ones’ upbringing: The effects when none are in place can can be detrimental. The consequences of Wes Moore’s decisions in comparison to the other Wes Moore, having an absence of any, leads to the success of one and failure of the other.
In 1776, the United States became a free nation independent from Great Britain. It represented a world where all individuals were equal and had the opportunity to start anew. However, that was not the case for African Americans. They did not receive the same opportunities as white citizens and did not get their “freedom” declared until 1865 with the creation of the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery (The Library of Congress). To this day, the portrayal of African Americans is used as a tool to enhance the image of a white man or woman.
