They are quickly abandoned and “were left to break their legs on the gardens’ gravel paths or drown in the gutters” (Harvey 8-9). Some of the ponies suffered a worse fate though, “On the first day of the month, rats gathered on doorsteps & spat out only the bitter manes” (Harvey 9-10), and the people did nothing to help. As long as people don’t have to directly deal with things they are fine. People even take pride in the suffering of the ponies and “It became a matter of pride if one of your ponies proved unusually sturdy. People would smile & say, “This would have been an awful month for me” (Harvey 14-15).
The trials of Sacco and Vanzetti goes on about how they were falsely executed for murdering a guard and armed robbery because of their immigrant background .

The flaws in the justice system that affected the outcome of the case of Anthony Porter initially were he had been defended by a lawyer who fell asleep in the court, assigned a judge who later left the bench over a financial scandal, and convicted a jury prejudiced by a witness's false testimony. The judge in the original Porter case later left the court because of financial scandal. Yes, it is relevant to Porter's case and it never can be a fallacy. Because, a person who attempted to falsify accounting statements for financial gain may have done many things to get more money.

It was Queen’s letter which implied that she was having an affair and that could have affected her “honor”. A minister had taken the letter, but the queen couldn’t do anything about it because it would have brought the King’s attention to the letter. We get to know that the police had thoroughly searched every inch of Minister D’s hotel for three nights. In all probabilities, the minister already knew that his hotel will be searched and hence kept the letter in a place where the police wouldn’t think of searching and then vacated his hotel because he knew the secret search will take place. The height of corruption could be seen in the fact that police could easily have access to any house and search every inch of it.
The prisoners had seen and experienced so much brutality, endured repeated beatings, and humiliated beyond imagination, so one more death did not affect them.

Our Influences: Our Choices Nathan Bedford was not born a racist. Raskolnikov was not born a murderer. If Nathan Bedford was born into a union family, he likely would not have started the KKK.

But both these figures like John Jay and Razumihin had a choice, and they disregarded their integrity and chose to follow negative influences, as opposed to positive examples.
