In The Great Gatsby, the main character, Jay Gatsby, is often associated with his flamboyant parties, wealth, and the style of the 1920s that is vividly depicted throughout F. Scott Fitzgerald’s writing. While Fitzgerald vibrantly illustrates Gatsby as a hopeless romantic, it can, and has been, argued that Jay Gatsby is a comical character with narcissistic tendencies as well. In “Gatsby Is a Classic Romantic” by Robert Ornstein, the author begins by analyzing Jay Gatsby’s “...unending quest of the romantic dream, which is forever betrayed in fact yet redeemed in men’s minds” (Ornstein 34). By stating this, Ornstein has begun to not only analyze Gatsby’s tendency to only see the facts as he wishes to, but he also touches on and summarizes
October 2nd, 2002 was the start of a long and horrific three weeks in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. People were terrified to be in the area and everyone was on edge. What appeared to be random killings, turned out to be a well-organized series of senseless shootings that took the lives of ten innocent people. After days of people being scared to death and much confusion, investigators discovered that there were two suspects in the shootings; John Allen Muhammad and his teenage partner Lee Boyd Malvo and they were in a blue 1990 Chevrolet Caprice sedan designed to terrorize people.

Cincinnati Police homicide detective Jennifer Mitsch has a message for the those who intimidate and threaten murder witnesses: You have met your match.

The program is called CCROW and stands for Cincinnati Citizens Respecting Our Witnesses.

JonBonet, who was named Little Miss Colorado in the mid 90’s , was the daughter of John and Patricia "Patsy" Ramsey. The 6-year-old daughter of a business executive was found slain in the basement of her home hours after her mother discovered a ransom note indicating the girl had been kidnapped according The Record [Bergen County, N.J]. Many crimes go unsolved, because of mistakes created by the officers or investigators at the crime scene such as tampering with evidence, flaws in the legal system, and departments giving up on cases of up to a year. For one thing, it was reported in the article that the crime scene was hopelessly tampered with when the victim’s father, Jon Ramsey, picked up and moved his daughter’s body from the storeroom
Emmett was left mutilated and horrendous looking for all of the world to see when his mother decided to have an open-coffin funeral. News of Emmett’s story spread through the nation like a forest fire, outraging and devastating people all over, saying how brutal the murder was, or how it wasn’t brutal enough. Emmett’s trial took place less than 2 weeks after he’d been killed, and somehow his trial was more unfair than his death. During trial, Mr. Breland harassed Till’s Uncle Mose, “And yet you could see clearly, clearly enough to accuse to white men of murder, to claim that the men on your porch were Mr. Bryant and Mr. Milam over there… No problem with white folks, yet there you sit accusing two of our upstanding white citizens of barging into your home in the middle of the night, pointing a gun and a flashlight in your face, and hauling off your nephew”(170/171). Even though Bryant and Milam both admitted to kidnapping Emmett, the possibility of the two men not even being there to take Emmett is beyond irrational, even when both men stated their names at Moses 's door.
