This attempted cover-up increased the public attack of the raid and prompted a Congressional investigation, but state officials ordered for the D yard to be cleaned up (bulldozed) before they could get cleared to investigate. The Attica riot was the worst prison riot in U.S. history. A total of 43 people were killed, including the 39 killed in the raid as well as 4 others killed by prisoners early in the riot. In the week after the riot, police engaged in brutal punishments against the prisoners, forcing them to run a gantlet of nightsticks and crawl naked across broken glass, among other tortures.

He does not know any better than to hold onto it, thus he has not learned from his mistakes. If by some grace of God Lennie had survived this episode, later down the line it would occur again. Lennie would be dealing with a cycle of living hell and George prevents him from
At 1:30am on April 19, 1989, Trisha Meili, a bank investor was found brutally beaten. She was found to have been raped, and cut so severely that it resulted in a seventy percent loss of total blood in her body. Five suspects that were boys were convicted and charged of the crime. Although, there was an account of a taped confession from these boys, after extended prison sentences, an individual confessed, and they were exonerated. However, before they were found guilty and sentenced, during the midst of interrogations, it was evident that while on trial, there was no actual way to understand if these boys were coerced in giving falsified confessions.
Lennie was not the smartest of the two, but that doesn 't give him the authority to do bad things and not have any repercussions afterwards. If George wanted to keep his jobs before, he should have been more strict on Lennie and disciplined him when Lennie was in the wrong.

Therefore, seeing a child, adolescent, or young adult succumb to any of the previously mentioned things would be devastating for most to hear and see.
Ethan doesn 't understand that running away from problems isn 't going to make them disappear. He would never talk to Zeena about the problems that they have. It 's apparent that Zeena and Ethan don 't love each other. Their conversations are as minimal as they can get, and they 're both cold around each other. Their relationship is on the edge of breaking apart, and one accurate step would 've helped him be free from this burden.
Violent outbreaks occurred everywhere. Innocent people were getting teased and killed just because of their race and the way they looked. In December 2015 Gallup found that, “51 percent of people were very or somewhat worried that they or someone in their families would be a victim of terrorism” As the years go on the percent keeps increasing.

An American is sexually assaulted every 107 seconds. Furthermore, these victims are then 3 times more likely to suffer depression and 6 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (“Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network Statistics,” n.d.). Likewise, in the novel Beloved, the perpetrators, leave their victims physically and emotionally damaged.
