One month later - Wednesay July 8th, 1992 (5.21 p.m.) Tom shifted uncomfortably in his seat and focused his gaze on Doctor Li’s left ear. Once again, they were discussing his rape at the warehouse and once again, he wished they were talking about something else. The memories were still so vivid and he was still unable to come to terms with the embarrassment and shame he felt. He had followed Ana like a sheep to the slaughterhouse and although part of him blamed Mosco, he also blamed himself for being so trusting. Once upon a time, he had been a first class cop who relied on his instincts.
Thesis: Police interrogations can occasionally lead to false confessions due to misclassification, coercion, and contamination. I. The phrase “Innocent until proven guilty” is a popular statement among law enforcement and government employees, but this statement is not always upheld, as various errors, such as misclassification, are a major cause of false confessions. A. Misclassification errors are caused by “investigator bias,” where the investigator goes into the interrogation believing the suspect is guilty. (Keene) B.
He could not hold the pain of guilt. He felt like he was being punished. “Anything was more tolerable than this derision! I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! Even though the police officers were having regular conversation he felt as though they knew what he had done.
In my English class I read the book called Monster written by Walter Dean Myers. It was about a young man called Steve Harmon who was arrested for allegedly being a part of a crime gone horribly wrong, which sadly resulted in a man losing his life. It also spoke about what Steve had to endure throughout that entire process of that trail. In the end even tho Steve knew that the crime will occur he still was found not guilty. I believe that Steve Harmon should have been found not guilty because, he did not give a signal and he also did not receive any part of the money that taken from the robbery.
Capone was away from Chicago at the time so he was curious upon who ordered the shooting. The assailants had presumably intended to kill Moran himself, but he arrived late at the scene but got away without a trace. After a long and complicated investigation, two Capone gunmen were accused of the killings and sent off for trial, but one of them was murdered and the other was given an alibi by his girlfriend, proving him innocent. However, he was later on murdered. The territory that Moran owned stayed under his power for a while, but the North Side gang never recovered.
In the courtroom here on Tuesday, the current district attorney, Johnson Britt (no relation to the original prosecutor), citing his obligation to “seek justice,” not simply gain convictions, said he would not try to prosecute the men again because the state “does not have a case.” Mr. McCollum was 19 and Mr. Brown was 15 when they were picked up by the police in Red Springs, a town of fewer than 4,000 people in the southern part of the state, on the night of Sept. 28, 1983. The officers were investigating the murder of Sabrina Buie, 11, who had been raped and suffocated with her underwear crammed down her throat, her body left in a soybean field. No physical evidence tied Mr. McCollum or Mr. Brown, both African-American, as was the victim, to the crime. But a local teenager cast suspicion on Mr. McCollum, who with his half brother had recently moved from New Jersey and was considered an
Blood stains all around the house were found along with a broken window, and Kercher’s room locked. The house was a mystery a dead body, blood stains, and what seem like a setup break in, a lot of unanswered questions were left behind that day. Amanda Knox was soon arrested along with her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, and was the first suspect of the murder. I believe she was innocent because the investigation was very poorly driven, and also because there was no physical evidence that she was there when the crime happened. Even though some people may say she is guilty because of her reaction and also because of the DNA found in the knife.
Holmes is taken to the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo for supervision. A month later, Holmes Attorneys defended his client, by saying, "Mr. Holmes suffers from a severe mental illness and was in the throes of a psychotic episode when he committed the acts that resulted in the tragic loss of life and injuries sustained by movie goers on July 20, 2012” (“Colorado Theater”, 2017). Holmes defense to his actions was because he believe the reason he killed everyone is because he was unable to control his actions because of the movie he watched. Theory of Holmes’ Case My theory of this case is to believe this case wasn’t a case of insanity because this individual clearly planned his actions. Holmes stepped out of the movie theater and returned wearing protective gear.
Closing Statements Intro Your Honor today the prosecution did in fact prove that the defendant Robin Banks is guilty of arson and murder. The defense witnesses that spoke today wasted our time starting with Collins Mr. Collins who attempts to give some background on Robin Banks character when they have on been friends for a few days or so they say in their statements. But on the night of the fire Banks told Chief Gray that she was not even an acquaintance of Collins. Collins and Banks whereabouts are unknown on the night of the fire and when they were picked up by the honorable Chief Gray, Collins refused to be arrested Chief Gray even reported that both Collins and Banks had the foul stench of accelerant when they were all together in the
The media has blown the slogan “black lives matter” way out of proportion, creating an image that all cops are racist against innocent black people. I read an article titled, “Political correctness almost costs an Alabama cop his life,” and it is devastating to learn how this detective hesitate using force on the suspect in order to protect himself from imminent harm. In summary, an Alabama detective was pistol whipped with his own gun, used by a suspect that he stopped on traffic. According to Slippers (2015), “The police detective says he chose not to use force against a man attacking him because he didn’t want to be another headline. The brutal beating occurred during a routine traffic stop” (p. 2).
