When Carolyn Bryant’s husband found out what happened he immediately wanted vengeance. He ended up shooting Till and throwing him in the Tallahatchie river. When everyone came to see the dead body, they became outraged. All that became even worse when the murderers were found not guilty. Emmett Till helped people who were on the edge about joining the civil rights movement, to finally do it.
People have a tendency to fight for themselves and for what they believe in no matter what the cost. This is shown in Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible when people in a village, named Salem, try kill their neighbors by blaming them for witchcraft. With characters such as John Proctor, he tries to bring justice to the town of Salem with all the false accusations with Reverend Hale. However with Judge Hawthorne, Abigail, Parris, Putnam, and the townspeople standing in their way, Proctor and Hale must fight through to bring justice. However in the end, 20 innocent people died because of people’s vengeance, hatred, and greed.
The people swiftly caught on and a few days later, the Bishop Gaudri was thrown into the street and killed in minutes. Guibert describes the aftermath as a bloodbath with innocent and those supporting the bishop, slaughtered in the street and in their homes. “The progress of the fire, kindled on two sides at once, was so rapid, and the winds drove the flames so furiously in the direction of the convent of St. Vincent, that the monks were afraid of seeing all they possessed
Because the jury did not favor black men, Tom Robinson did not receive a fair trial, although Atticus made a great case. Segregation directly disobeys the fourteenth amendment, “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States.” Maycomb Alabama is where the story, To Kill a Mockingbird takes place. Tom Robinson’s trial out come was not based on factual evidence. Mayella was lying to the jury, while Tom was completely innocent. He could not have done everything that Mayella said he did, due to the fact that he one has one working arm.
If enough people believe that Chinggis Khan is the punishment of God, it almost becomes true, as everyone treats and reacts to him as the punishment of God. Chinggis Khan also had no respect for religion. He burned down churches and killed everyone inside, as easily as he killed anyone else. He also killed “all from the male sex even to the female, all the priests and monks… Wednesday in Easter week” Chinggis Khan killed priests and monks, who were ordained ministers who had strong connections to religion. This in itself is brutal and ruthless, but the additional fact that he chose to do this during Easter week, defined as “the most important and oldest festival of the Christian Church…” is entirely ignorant of religion.
Leo Frank was a white, Jewish, superintendent of a pencil factory in Atlanta, Georgia where the body of Mary Phagan, one of the factories’ workers, was found. The murder of the thirteen year old girl prompted outrage in the city of Atlanta and around the country, and in a highly controversial trail, Leo Frank was quickly given the death sentence. Frank’s sentence would later be changed to life in prison, but while he was in a jail hospital, a mob broke in and lynched Frank on the outskirts of Mary Phagan’s hometown. The trial of Leo Frank is unique in both its ability to spark controversy up to the present day, and its ability to highlight the social tensions of America and Atlanta, one of the countries busiest cities. With a new progressive
After the trial, Bob Ewell swears to Atticus that “he’d get him if it took the rest of his life” (290). He then attempts to murder both Jem and Scout, succeeds in seriously injuring Jem, and then gets murdered himself. All of the three events above would have been avoided if Mayella had been honest during the trial, putting the responsibility on Mayella. Her dishonesty prolonged the aftermath of the trial for much longer than necessary and caused a domino effect of tragic events, none of which were desirable in any way. As shown above, the actions of Mayella Ewell during the trial of Tom Robinson prove that ultimately, she is more villain than
In the text, BBC:100 days of genocide, it says, “ Lists of government opponents were handed out to militias who went and killed them, along with all of their families. Neighbors killed neighbors and some husbands, even killed their Tutsi wives, saying they would be killed if they refused.” You may wonder what would cause such a horrid thing? Well it all started way back in 1990 where they fought until a peace deal was agreed in 1993. But on the night of April 6th, 1994, president Juvenal Habyarimana, and his counterpart Cyprien Ntaryamira of Burundi, both Hutus, was shot down, killing everyone on board. The Hutus extremists blamed RPF and immediately started a well-organised campaign of slaughter.
The two men then beat him nearly to death, gouged out his eye, shot him in the head, and then threw his body, tied to the cotton-gin fan with barbed wire, into the River.” ( website history). I remember Emmett’s mother reaction as if it was yesterday. “In Chicago, Mamie Till arrives at the Illinois Central Terminal to receive Emmett 's casket. She is surrounded by family and photographers who snap her photo collapsing in grief at the sight of the casket.” (PBS) That was one of the most depressed days in my life. Emmett’s mother had an open casket for everyone to see what they did to her son.
Black people took this comedian 's words to heart. Not only were they crushed inside, but they felt discriminated and alone. This is just one reason why comedians should not speak up about racial point of views. In the report from, The Hollywood Reporter, another comedian said, “President Obama is a personal friend of mine. He was over to the house yesterday, but the mop broke,” (MacLaine 1).
