However, DuPont did not dispute the he shot David Schultz, but whether he was sane enough to know right from wrong. After listening to three weeks of testimony and 43 witnesses, jurors deliberated for 13 days before coming to a verdict (CNN, 1997). On February 25, 1997, John DuPont was found guilty, but mentally ill, of third-degree murder and simple assault. He was sentenced to 13 to 30 years for the murder conviction, plus an additional three to six months of for simple assault, which will run concurrently (John E. Dupont Trial: 1997-Verdict,
One of the women was raped and the other two were assaulted, but escaped before they were raped. Based on the descriptions and the similarities of the attacks, Los Angeles police concluded that the same person committed all three attacks—the victims all were attacked at about 6 a.m. by a man with a knife as they walked to a bus stop. The police soon focused on 29-year-old Luis Vargas because he had a single teardrop tattoo under his left eye. All three victims identified Vargas in photo lineups, although with less than 100 percent certainty. Vargas was arrested on 07/21/1998.
Another great example is all of the military units subject to toxic leadership. Although a unit may have had horrible leadership, the continuity of the organization was kept intact by the soldiers. Motivation, value, and bonds built between employees and peers are stronger than the bonds formed between subordinates and leadership. Thus, creating the need for HRM and tools like the Cycle of Excellence; bridging the relationship between employees and organizations. Unfortunately, I believe grapple and grow a wasted step, or more specifically, not the right verbiage for a step in the Cycle of Excellence.
Daniel Frank was the first person to be legally executed, he was sentenced to death for theft. (Michael Par. 7). Being executed for theft really was extreme, and the government later made the execution method to be used for more grave crimes. Many states years after decided to abolish capital punishment, and eventually legalized it again.
These two short stories are often associated with the creation of the detective genre by Poe. As evident in ‘The Murders of Rue Morgue’, Poe created an unjustly accused suspect. This suspect was known as Adolphe Le Bon. Adolphe Le Bon was accused of murdering Madame L’Espanaye and her daughter, Mademoiselle Camille. The police wrongly accused him of committing the crime due to the fact that he brought Madame L’Espanaye 4,000 francs three days before the murder took place.
His sentence is changed from manslaughter and he has now been sentenced to 18-20 years in prison for manslaughter, followed by four to five years in prison for illegal possession of a firearm. (Ryan, 2013) During a trial, the evidence is again presented to a court of law or a jury. Being sentenced to Capital Punishment is very unlikely to happen for Burke, as the state of Massachusetts has abolished Capital Punishment and only uses it in very severe cases where the suspect is tried federally (McCarthy, 2014) instead of regionally, like the Boston Bomber Case. Burke most likely got this sentence, because he pleaded guilty, possibly after enough evidence was gathered to prove his guilt and thereby “has taken responsibility for shooting the victim, resulting in his death, over what appears to have been a dispute about money” (Boston.com, 2013) Burke is most likely to receive this sentence, because it is exactly the crime he committed. He committed manslaughter which was proven by the messages on the phone and apparently other evidence that has been found.
Kuo stated that Simmons was sane and capable of standing trial. Simmons first trial lasted six hours and he was convicted May 12, 1988. On May 16, 1988 the judge sentenced Simmons to death by “lethal injection” , plus 147 years. Simmons was found guilty of fourteen counts of murder in the deaths of his family. After questioning followed with some evidence Simmons lashed out at a man by the name of Bayum, punching him in the face, and struggling to get a deputy’s handgun.
Ridgway was arrested on 2001 November 30th because of the positive DNA match which were found from the victim. Even though Ridgway was thought to kill at least 71 women, he was only able to recall 48 of them. On 2003 November 2nd he pled guilty to 48 of the murders and confessed of having sexual intercourse with 6 of the dead bodies (necrophilia). By 2003 December 18th Ridgway was sentenced 480 years with no parole. (Gary Ridgway – The Green River Killer.
That is why we are pro capital punishment or what we usually call death penalty. What is capital punishment you ask? Well, capital punishment, also known as the death penalty, is a legal authorization by the court to punish a person by taking away their life for committing a crime bound by life sentences such as murder. Throughout the years, capital punishment has been slowly introduced around the world with currently 57 countries still practicing it including United States of America. In 2016, at least 3,117 people were sentenced to death across 55 countries, which is the highest number to recorded in just a year.
2.2.3 Leadership and Internal Communication D’Aprix (1996, pp. 131-132) declares the dark side of organizational life to be the misuse of power and the abuse and devaluation of employees. There is however, nothing wrong with hierarchical structures, he adds. Some of them are very effective and even efficient in their ability to concentrate solutions on serious problems, he explains. In an emergency there is no substitute for a strong authority figure who can mobilize the co-workers into action, he continues.
