Recent investigations have discovered many clippings of letters from Lizzie’s jail cell and journals of Lizzie’s attorney were found that were about 100 pages long. From the things she wrote in her letters to her attorney, Lizzie was portrayed as a cold, stoic individual. She was described as an individual who showed no emotions but the letters seemed to have shown a grieving side of her. After the short time in jail of ten months, Lizzie Borden was acquitted. According to How Lizzie Borden was punished despite her acquittal, Latson, August 4, 2015, “Acquitted her on the grounds that evidence against her was mostly circumstantial.” They weren’t able to gather any evidence that showed directly that Lizzie committed the murders.
However, she had been given doses of morphine to help calm her nerves after the murders of her father and his wife. Lizzie was seen burning a dress shortly after, claiming it was an old one that had been ruined with paint. Lizzie Borden was arrested on August 11, 1892 for the double homicide. Her trial began nearly a year later on June 5, 1893. The mangled skulls of Mr. and Mrs. Borden were unveiled in the courtroom as evidence, thus causing such a shock that Lizzie fainted at the sight of them.
Lennie´s mental disabilities and psychotic tendencies prevented him from acting like a human. Someone that kills people certainly does not fit in society, especially if that person is mentally disabled and does not control his actions. Lennie only needed hair to kill an innocent woman. Along his life, he would run into several women with long hair, making every woman with long hair and a dress in danger. It would not be rare to suppose that Lennie would keep assassinating innocent people.
Although they didn't find her guilty with the evidence I portrayed to you to day it is pretty clear to say that she was the axe murderer. All my reasons and up the main summary is that she tried hiding the evidence and tried leaving no bloody footprints to herself. Lizzie borden is a true master mind to get away with murder and on top of that stay in that same town. Wait why did she stay in that town you might ask if she did kill her parents. Well the answer to that is simple she hid in plain

Alice Russell offered up this information during the trial and said it was a blue dress that Lizzie said had old paint on it. Earlier in the trial Bridget Sullivan said that Lizzie was wearing a blue dress on the day of the murders (Linder). None of this was looking too good for Lizzie Borden. Through the whole investigation Lizzie’s room was never searched and no one followed through with official police questioning, which means she was never interrogated like suspects would normally be

Racism in The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Imagine your mother, sister, wife, or cousin was diagnosed with cervical cancer and you believed the doctors were doing everything in their power to help her. Only later you discovered her cells were used for research without consent and she was not properly informed of the risks of her treatment due to her race.

Henrietta Lacks was a young black woman who was diagnosed with cervical cancer at John Hopkins Hospital.
Hordes of flesh eating murderers move slowly towards a defenseless white girl, she has nowhere to run, seemingly out of nowhere, a black man comes to the rescue as a white family ignores the obvious screams for help from the other side of a door. This exact situation occurs in the film Night of the Living Dead, and although he does everything he can, the main character, Ben, still ends up shot by the people that are supposed to protect him. Throughout the movie there is a prevalence of rebellion and aggression towards Ben due to nothing other than the color of his skin. Through the actions of Ben and those around him in their struggle for survival, racism is shown as an extremely prevalent issue. Mr. Cooper feels threatened by Ben which causes
He continues his argument that the dead never truly die with the memory of a story; he writes, “Retell the stories, show vistas of the night: dead friends wearing jeweled masks, gaudy fingernails painted gold and pink.” Simply, the vistas, or mental views of remembered events, are cyclically revisited through constructs like her timeless stories. The story of the dead celebrating in a masquerade with sun-colored fingernails conveys that through stories, the dead are reborn with the sunrise. Each day brings back the past as long as stories are kept as memories. McQuilkin tells readers that although one cannot physically revisit the past through anything beyond memory, the stories provide “another day for you to celebrate.” The use of the word “you,” rather than “Mother” or “my love,” serves as a universal reminder to all that stories, in general, allow one to revisit and embrace the past. Ultimately, his mother’s life in time has not stopped ticking because the vista of dawn, before she died, can be relived everyday.
