PTSD was what the marine said he had since he was in the military, but no evidence supports how he would have gotten PTSD. The marine, Eddie Routh never was in any combat zones during his service time. Routh shot Kyle and Chad Littlefield, Chris’ friend, at a gun range on February 2, 2013. His death shook America; the hero who was considered a legend was dead. Thousands of people lined the highways to watch his procession pass on a rainy day.
Rahm Emanuel Fires Fall Guy in the Laquan McDonald Shooting The American people have expressed their outrage over the shooting of unarmed black teen Laquan McDonald by a white Chicago police officer. The outrage was not just that Officer Van Dyke shot McDonald 16 times as the teen was calmly walking down the street, but that the police department and city officials tried to cover the incident up. There was a police car dash cam that caught the whole incident on film, but the recording was hidden away for over a year. The nearby Burger King had its footage erased by fellow officers.
In conclusion, I think we can learn something from the snipers mistake, that may be simply knowing what you are doing. The sniper never knew what he was doing when he took the life of his brother, of the lady, of the gunman. We all need take a step back and recognize what could be affected from your actions. Weather that’s the theme of treating a human like they should be, or just learning from your mistakes. I’d like to say that overall the theme I shared you makes sense, he always showed that he was in a confused state and never knew what he had
Holding Police Accountable for their Killings of Unarmed People of Color Fruitvale Bart Station is where I begin and end my day. The infamous platform in Oakland, California where bart police murdered Oscar Grant, a fully restrained unarmed African American who was celebrating New Year 's Day with his friends and girlfriend. Johannes Mehserle, the police officer involved in the shooting was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Thus, having to spend the minimum two years in prison but being he had time served he only would only spend seven months in jail with possible bail. Murder?
Minutes before he died, they tried to get him to reveal what had happened, but Gusenberg wouldn’t talk. Police could find just a few eyewitnesses, but they eventually came to the conclusion that gunmen dressed as police officers had entered the garage and pretended to be arresting the men. Though
After Dahmer killed more and more men and consuming their bodies, Dahmer lived his average day live without anyone knowing his secret. After a while the police began to notice that more and more men were disappearing and no one knew where they went. A man came running out of Dahmer’s apartment and the neighbors called the police. When the police arrived Dahmer was trying to calm him down, They asked what was going on, “just a spouse argument” says Dahmer.
Dr. Mudd’s Punishment Dr. Mudd’s punishment was too harsh for his involvement with John wilkes Booth. Mudd had not known about Booth planning to assassinate the president. In the article it states, “The doctor rose from his bed, assisted Booth, set the fractured bone. But he did not know, he had no reason to suspect, his patient was a fugitive.” Dr. Mudd had no idea of Booth’s plan and if he did he would have been weary of Booth knowing that he could be on the run.
Racial profiling is a serious problem as we have witnessed in the last few years in cases such as Oscars, Trayvon Martin and Sandra Bland. An even more serious issue is the ability of our law enforcement to get away with such heinous crimes. Oscar was guilty of committing a crime by fighting, yes, but the officer did not know who the suspect was and assumed Oscar was involved. Once he made the assumption of Oscar’s involvement, he then proceeded to speak toward Oscar with uneasiness and prejudice. From what the film shows, there were no witnesses so the officers had no basis of arresting Oscar and his friends.
On August 1, 1966, Charles Whitman, a former marine, began sniping students, professors, and police at the University of Texas at Austin from the clock tower. He killed sixteen people and wounded thirty two others. Whitman had to be shot unexpectedly in order to stop this mass shooting. In The New York Times, Manny Fernandez and Dave Montgomery wrote about Texas lawmakers passing a bill that allows guns at college campuses. Texas lawmakers should not have passed a bill, allowing guns at colleges, because it compromises the safety and well-being of all people on campus grounds.
MacIntyre also failed to locate the two men Marshall described in his testimony and the police failed to use investigative facilities and services made available by the RCMP. The police failed to record the eyewitness testimonies. Reports were made that provided evidence of Marshall’s innocence but the officer who it was reported to failed to bring it forward to the Crown and defence counsel’s attention. The Crown Prosecutor failed to interview the key eyewitnesses. Defence counsel provided to Marshall represented him inadequately and did not pursue further investigation on their evidence.
He killed twelve people and wounded another 58.But just a few weeks later, another American community faced the unimaginable grief that cities like Tucson and Aurora knew too well. In Oak Creek, Wisconsin, a shooting in a Sikh temple left six people dead and four more wounded. Despite witnessing these tragedies again and again and again, nothing could have steeled the nation for what would happen in Newtown, Connecticut. On December 14, 2012, the day had just begun at Sandy Hook Elementary when a man broke into the school and started shooting.
Hoover’s only plausible motive was that he may have feared that Kennedy would force him out of office when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 70 in 1965. The FBI’s lack of willingness to investigate the assassination does not imply that it or its director were involved in the crime (22 November
Greg Alexander also said “For 60 Minutes to portray Cameron Smith as the villain in the Alex McKinnon story I thought was unfair and unbalanced.” “They had every opportunity to go to the Melbourne Storm and seek a comment from them or get a comment from Cameron Smith but decided not to do that because that didn’t suit their story.” 60 Minutes also failed to broadcast the times where the whole Storm team arrived at the hospital to see Alex, three times. “Look, Cameron Smith wasn’t in the tackle. And watching that back in hindsight and what Cameron Smith said, look I’m sure Cameron Smith would be thinking ‘I wish I did it a bit differently’ but not there and then,” Greg continues.
In the early 1760’s, the tension between the people in Boston and the British soldiers started to grow until in early 1770, when the two groups reached their breaking point. On March 5, 1770, a group of men started intimidating a British soldier; he soon called for assistance but eventually the crowd had grown to practically one hundred people. Captain Thomas Preston and seven other soldiers arrived, trying to calm the situation down, but to no avail. A soldier fired into the crowd followed by the other soldiers firing soon after, resulting in five people being killed. Captain Thomas Preston happened to be arrested and charged with murder.
Who Killed President John F. Kennedy Out of ¨Oswald was the lone assassin, Oswald was a part of a larger conspiracy, and Oswald was completely innocent,¨ Oswald being part of a larger conspiracy is the most reasonable answer because Oswald was somehow in the same building that the shots came from, and he did not hear anything at all. He should have heard something if he was in the same building. A gun shot is pretty loud and the sound HAD to have made it down 4 floors.
