Stroebe and Schut consider it fundamental to successful coping (Stroebe & Schut, 1999). It is a “process of juxtaposition of confrontation and avoidance of different stressors associated with bereavement” (Stroebe & Schut, 1999, pg. 215). The bereaved will at times be confronted by loss and at other times find relief through distractions and attending to new things. Optimal post-loss adjustment is posited to occur when the bereaved individual smoothly transitions or oscillate between LO and RO processes (Shah & Meeks, 2012; Stroebe & Schut, 1999).
When police officers arrived, they found a gang member, Frank Gusenberg, barely alive. Minutes before he died, they tried to get him to reveal what had happened, but Gusenberg wouldn’t talk. Police could find just a few eyewitnesses, but they eventually came to the conclusion that gunmen dressed as police officers had entered the garage and pretended to be arresting the men. Though
Over the years, Bill and Hillary Clinton have knocked off dozens of people who have stood in their way. The trail of mayhem was uncovered in 1993, when a right-wing group called the American Justice Federation compiled "Coincidence or the Kiss of Death?" It listed 21 Clinton colleagues and acquaintances who had died "mysteriously" in what appeared to be run-of-the-mill heart attacks, suicides, and plane crashes. The "Clinton Body Count" became an Internet phenomenon, but died off after they left the White House. When Hillary announced her presidential bid last January, an expanded version of the body count started making the rounds.
The incident occurred in a parking lot where the police were acting out a warrant for another person. Officer Vinson said that “he saw Scott rolling a marijuana joint and holding a gun, and fired at him out of concern for public safety.” Because the officers were wearing body cameras Officer Vinson was not charged. The Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray says “It is my opinion that Officer Vinson acted lawfully when he shot Mr. Scott," Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray said at a news conference. "He acted lawfully." The CCRB received more then 5,000 complaints of “ Excessive use of force” in New York City in 2013 which added up to 11,334 allegations against the police.
Seventy three seconds into its flight, the space shuttle Challenger exploded, killing all seven passengers on board, including Christa McAuliffe, who was to be the first civilian in space. This was to be the Challenger’s tenth mission and, sadly, it turned out to be its final one as well. Following an investigation called for by President Reagan, it was determined that the crash was ultimately caused by two rubber O-Rings, designed to separate the rocket boosters, that failed due to cold temperatures on the morning of the launch (“Challenger Disaster”). In his address to the nation on January 28, 1968, President Reagan uses allusion, pathos, and tone to comfort the audience after the catastrophic events. In his speech, Reagan manipulates his
The gunman locked the door waiting for the cop to come inside, so that he could wound him. The cop requested reinforcement, and we all heard another “BOOM” When they broke open the door. The gunman knew he was he was going to get arrested, and he was right because the cop got whacked with a gun by the gunmen. There were other cops, so that’s how he got arrested, and a lot of cops came into the school. They were retrieving other kids from the classrooms, and the rest of us were fine besides the teacher and student that got shot.
To begin with, Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the man most people believe kidnapped and murdered the child, was captured after an employee at a gas station recognized one of the marked bills used to pay for the child’s location (Sifakis 534). In addition, people reported Hauptmann having great woodworking skills and a previous criminal record when he came to the United States (Klein). This claim is imperative because very few people knew of his previous criminal file, and that he was capable of using his personal interests to kidnap the child. Also, many people know that Hauptmann used wood from his attic for the ladder used in the crime and used handwritten notes to get across to the parents. ¨Throughout repeated investigations, the state has concluded that Mr. Hauptmann was linked to the ladder used in the kidnapping, to the hand-written ransom demands and to the ransom money¨ (¨Museum and New Jersey Are at Odds Over Files¨).
This makes them seem more like villains than heroes. One case of this is in the murder of Kelly Thomas, “a Californian schizophrenic man who police beat to death in 2011. The story goes that the owner of a club called the police because they were suspicious that someone was breaking into the vehicles. When they arrived, the police saw no evidence of this. They did spot Thomas and they tried to question and frisk him.
He called for backup and told them to wait until he had more insight on what happened at the convenience store. While Graham was waiting for officer Connor to come back, he got out of the car, ran around the car twice and passed out by the car. Officer Connor's backup arrived on scene to help officer Connor apprehend Berry and Graham while Berry was pleading for them to help Graham. The officers rejected his cry for help while placing Graham's face down on the hood of the car. Graham asked the police officers to check his wallet for his diabetic decal.
On the way to Chet’s house, Frank and Joe barely avoided a speeding car that eventually crashed. The two crimes were thought to have been committed by the same thief, because the thief was seen to have worn a red wig during his crime spree. Frank and Joe Hardy found that the jalopy was hidden in the woods of Bayport. Right when Frank and Joe Hardy found the car, they heard that the Tower Mansion has been robbed. Frank and Joe made a connection that it must have been the same thief.
Today, 14 people were killed and 17 others were wounded by the mass shooting that occurred in San Bernardino- California. Three gunmen entered the social service center located in San Bernardino and opened fire on people. Witnesses claimed that the shooters were armed with long guns, wearing ski masks and military-style vests. The chief police Jarrod Burguan alarmed the people to be safe because one of the killers is still free and they didn’t find him yet. However, the police managed to identify one of the killers called Syed Farooq.
Finally a suspect was found. In September 1934, one of the gold certificates showed up at a gas station in New York. The gas attendant thought the gold certificate might be “counterfeit” (Schwartz 3), so he wrote down the license plate. The car belonged to Bruno Richard Hauptmann. On September 19, 1934, Bruno Hauptmann was arrested and tried for murder on January 2, 1935.
After searching the area for more clues, “a nearby bank videotape showed the Ryder truck parked “outside the Murrah building” (Casey). In addition to the information found on the site, “a motel owner in Junction City quickly identified McVeigh” (Casey). Meanwhile, the perpetrator was driving north on I-35 near Perry where he was pulled over. A state trooper stopped him because he had no license plate and arrested him because he was carrying a concealed gun. Federal agents arrived at the prison just before he was leased and took him into
Furthermore, while Thomas Sophonow was in custody, he showed an undercover officer a door locking technique. Although the undercover officer was looking for a confession, he decided to use Mr. Sophonow’s knowledge and demonstration of the locking technique as further evidence that would pin him to the case, as it was noted that the door was locked from the inside when Barbara Stoppel’s life came to an untimely end. Lastly, police found the twine that had fibres of Barbara Stoppel’s sweater and was thought to have been the murder weapon. This physical evidence could have come from one of two places; Power twines company or the
