Therefore, the prosecution’s medical experts argue that the baby was not a full term infant and died at the same time as his mother. Peterson Attorney Geragos paint a picture that a Satanic cult kidnapped Laci, he argues that Peterson was a cad for cheating on his wife but was not a murderer. On November 12, 2003, jury convicted Peterson of first-degree murder for killing his wife Laci and second-degree murder for killing the fetus she carried base special
Conspiracy theories began to explode. Some theorists claimed that due to the amount of trauma to his body, he must have been intentionally hit by a speeding chariot or in a chariot accident. There were even theories that he was killed by a hippopotamus, who were known to attack. Some believe Ay, a rival, murdered him because he was more fit to be king because he was older and already had some power because King Tutankhamun was to young to understand what he was taking control of. The door leading to King Tut’s chamber room was discovered on November 24, 1922 (Ganeri).
The detectives knew that the eye-witness account wasn't going to be enough to convict Butler. Therefore, they drew up a false confession that was allegedly (in a way implied... after all it's a “confession”) verbatim that Butler spewed/confessed to the detectives. Maybe it is not fair to use the word “they” as if everyone in the investigation was involved in the framing of Butler. I want to make it clear that I do not think everyone was out to frame Butler. However, because the detectives spent more time harassing the boy into “confessing” instead of investigating the crime.
An example of this is when young prisoner Tommy is shot dead as a precaution. The Warden was scared he would let Andy know the truth that he was wrongly convicted and he is innocent after all. Those in roles of high power commonly use their title or authority to everyone else’s disadvantage. By destroying Andy’s property (the only things he owned and had control over) the staff were easily allowed to demonstrate their power and flaunt their supremacy. I believe Darabont included scenes like this to emphasize the idea that people in powerful roles in society often dictate and domineer others until they are downtrodden.
Crime: Kidnapping (it is a common aspect of this two extraordinary crimes) Crime’s place: Hopewell, New Jersey on March 1, 1932. Ransom amount: initial amount $50.000, later 70.000 dollars. What happened to the Lindbergh baby? While Lindbergh’s baby was sleeping in his house in NJ, he was kidnapped by using an expandable ladder which reached the nursery window and brought down the ladder. Some days later, the kidnappers wrote a slip
What would you do if I told you that our own president, Barrack Obama, was a bloodthirsty murderer who raped women as if it were a casual way to spend his free time? Though this idea may seem controversial to some, in early Russia this statement had zero exaggeration to it. If the deaths of thousands of people due to psychological illness and paranoia is a normal sight to see in your eyes on a regular basis, then you might have lived between 1533 and 1584. During this time, Ivan Chetvyorty Vasilyevich (Ivan IV) reigned in Russia. The first appointed Czar of Russia, Ivan IV, better known as Ivan the Terrible, had a disturbed childhood which led to a severely unstable mental state and brutal rule.
This is accurate to the movie as well, though it could be argued that her mom was much worse in the movie. On a side note, her dad never made an appearance in the book, but was represented as a “goofball” in the movie. Arnold Friend differed from the book in his representation of the film. In the book, Arnold Friend was much more threatening. He said many sexual things, that he was going to burn down their house if she did not come out and even threatened his family.
Instead of being sent to a detention centre, his father locked him up in his house and now he is mentally unstable from the years of isolation. The mockingbird also has a compelling importance due to the connections with Boo Radley and Tom Robinson. Harper Lee uses juxtaposition to highlight the contrast of a black man and a white man facing racism and discrimination. However in this novel, one mockingbird is shot and the other is pressured to kill. A Mockingbird is considered for someone who displays innocence, kindness and does not want any recognition of the good deeds they do for others.
For example, when he explains why he calls himself “The Misfit”, “…because I can’t make what all I done wrong fit what all I gone through in punishment” (366). He claims that he did not kill his father. If he truly did not kill his father why would he kills innocent people? He acts like a victim in the whole conversation with the grandma. He says that “..if I had of been there I would of known and I wouldn’t be like I am now” (367).
In Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, it scrutinizes the punishments when a man creates life, and plays the role of God. Victor Frankenstein, is at fault for the creature’s actions. Victor was looking for some honor and triumph, but when he accomplished his experiment, not only did it bring terror to Victor, but to the whole world. The monster never learned right from wrong and was never raised correctly, his first moment of life, all he experienced was the fear in Victor's emotion, and was abandoned right from the start. Victor selfishly isolated himself from society and ran away from his responsibilities which caused destruction to the people Victor cared for and loved deeply.
