For the Application of the Criminal Justice System project of the Criminal Justice course, I chose the arrest of John Burke.

The love story of Hae Min Lee and Adnan Syed in the year of 1999 is a new version of “Romeo and Juliet” about the two young people who came from two different culture. Hae Lee was a Korean-American and Adnan Syed was an Afghanistan-American, and they both attended in Woodlawn High School, Maryland. Lee’s mystery death led to great division among the audience in debating whether or not if Syed is the true killer. A judicial in the year 2000, which lasted for only twenty-one minutes had totally turned Syed’s life up side down, for he had been sentenced in life prison regarding the death of his ex-girlfriend, Hae Lee.

Later in the year, the writers worked with film director, Catherine Hardwicke, to produce a PSA illustrating the sexual violence occurring in educational institutions across the nation.

My understanding of Coming into Language “Coming into Language” is a book by Jimmy Santiago Baca, that talks about the struggles he had to face as a young illiterate Hispanic male. As a “Chicano”, he had to deal with prejudice from an early life and as a result, had frequent run-ins with the police. At the age of seventeen he was arrested as a murder suspect because he refused to explain how he got a gash on his arm. While he is in prison, awaiting trial, he listens to other prisoners reading out loud and that is when he starts appreciating written language. Two years later, he is again behind the bars facing drug charges and a million-dollar bail.

The story goes like this per emmetttillmurder.com “While visiting family in Money, Mississippi, 14-year-old Emmett Till, an African American from Chicago, is brutally murdered for flirting with a white woman four days earlier.” Now this is we their system have fail, and continued to nose-dive the Negroid around in America.
The Jerry Sandusky trial began in 2012 and was held in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts and sentenced to 30 to 60 years in jail (Curry, 2015). The details of the case are horrific in nature, and worse is five men were made aware of the incidents and no action was taken to alert authorities. During the trial the victims were led through questions that all pointed toward the trust they had in Sandusky. The university is located in a small town setting where people work hard and have little; Sandusky reaching out to someone was considered a big deal.
