The Inquiry found that the investigation was not done suitably for the standards that the police, and the Crown have. The case’s evidence was insufficient due to lack of investigation at the crime scene, of the witnesses, and of the charges pursued. There was also an insufficient amount of sensitivity of this case due to the fact that it was the prosecution of a visible minority and the lack of training done on the respect to sensitivity on visible minorities.

The New Deal intended to bring welfare relief to impoverished and destitute Americans, although the New Deal transformed the United States and the status of politics at the time – as it refined the role of the federal and state governments, black Americans did not always directly benefit from it as an anti-lynching law was never passed.
