Simmons picked up the gifts and then drove home to wait out the weekend. On Monday, December 28th, 1987 Simmons drove to Walmart in a car that had once belonged to his son, so that he could purchase a second gun. After he purchased the second gun he proceeded in killing his old coworkers, bosses, and acquaintances, or whom he referred to as “everyone who wanted to hurt me”, he then turned himself over to the Russellville police after they arrived. Simmons was then sent to the “Arkansas State Hospital” in Little Rock where he was given a competency evaluation by the staff psychiatrist Dr. Irving Kuo. Kuo stated that Simmons was sane and capable of standing trial.
Just because a police officer assumes they’re reaching for a gun, trying to run away, attack them, etc.. They think they may do that because they’re wearing a badge and trained, nobody can tell them what to do. Most victims of police brutality weren’t even armed or had any weapons on them and they got beat or killed. For example, the shooting of Michael Brown he wasn’t even armed, and he got killed by Officer Wilson. Witnesses said Brown was moving toward Wilson, with his hands up in surrender and Wilson fired 12 shots in total.
Burke is most likely to receive this sentence, because it is exactly the crime he committed. He committed manslaughter which was proven by the messages on the phone and apparently other evidence that has been found. None of the news reports however, have not stated what the exactly additional evidence found, to prove Burkes guilt, were. If they found the murder weapon with John Burkes fingerprints on them or gun residue on Burke, as well as his clothing he was wearing while committing the crime had blood stains on them.
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 . After the murderers escaped the scene with the money the police searched a garage to claim a car it was connected to. Sacco and Vanzetti were arrested because victims said it was two Italian men who committed the crime but neither of them had previous trouble with the law. No one really know if they did it because witnesses only said there was two Italian men who did it when any Italian could’ve been a suspect. This trial shows that the 1920’s were prejudiced against certain ethnic group, specifically Italians.

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.

The latter of which advocated for an increase of both police officer protection and offensive capabilities; during the shootout local L.A.P.D. officers and their firearms which consisted mostly of handguns and shotguns were proven inadequate against the two lone gunmen whom were outfitted with body armor and wielded illegal fully automatic rifles, as a result the on-site officers had to use larger caliber firearms from a neighboring gun store in an attempt to subdue the suspects, however it was until the arrival of the L.A.P.D. S.W.A.T. team that resulted in the death and end of the two gunmen. Because of incidents such as this, police departments issue body armor to officers as apart of their uniform along with patrol rifles housed in police cars in order to match any threat should they arise - in essence the purpose of issuing rifles to officers is to match if not outperform criminals in life or death situations, as a result of which then creates the conflict of police militarization i.e. the issue of police modeling themselves after military tenets along with using militaristic equipment. However most of the stigma surrounding that of police militarization mostly stems from the issue of gun control, especially with the likes of the recent mass shootings. Because of these shootings the general public often associate firearms namely

Willis was charged with capital murder and sentenced to death. Willis had eventually obtained what Willingham called, enviously, a
