In episode two of Serial the state claims that Adnan is the one that did it. Sarah states on behalf of the state “ And the motive the State supplied, the basis for the whole thing, was that after Hae broke up with Adnan, he couldn’t accept it. He was so wounded by her, and so furious, that he decided to kill her” (21). This shows that there was a strong motive as to why Adnan killed Hae.

Cass Mastern and Jack Burden both somewhat directly kill two people very close to them as a result of their deep

There had been a huge case that shook America. The president had been shot, a person had become paralyzed, society had been unhappy with the verdict of the trial, and the would be assassin had been put in a psychiatric hospital for almost 30 years. The John Hinckley Jr. trial had been one that was easy to solve, but left a huge mark on history. The Hinckley parents were a “prosperous Texas oil family”.
Ashley Ross starts off by reminding us of the man accused of this crime. Orenthal James Simpson, or O.J., who started as the running back for the University of South Carolina where he won the Heisman Trophy in 1968. He was then drafted by the Buffalo Bills where he spent nine years before being traded to San Francisco’s 49ers. Afterward, O.J. retired and became a public figure, as a sports
He is said to have boasted to a person in jail saying that he hurt Sam Sheppard during the fight (www.murderpedia.org). Also, he revealed to Kathy Wagner Dyala former nurse’s aid to Ethel Durkin, who was assassinated by Eberling, that he killed Marilyn. Specifically the nurse reported, “He (Eberling) told me that he had killed her and that he hit her husband on the head with a pail and that the b**** hit the hell out of me.” Why would Eberling confess to two people (www.law2.umkc)? On Sam’s side, he had no clear motive to kill his wife.
The legal issue as discussed above is related to whether there is enough physical evidence to say that Scott Peterson is the murderer. His behavior, the fact that he had an affair with Amber Fray shortly before his wife 's disappearance that he continued to do so after her disappearance, and that he lied multiple times, and his going to the Berkley Marina on the day of his wife 's disappearance while the bodies of the victims were found not too far from that location, make him a very likely suspect. He also had a life insurance of 250 000$ put under Laci 's name (Dockterman, 1), and showed a behavior that would suggest him leaving the country before being tried also adds to this belief. However, there is still not direct evidence of him committing the murder so there is an issue as to accusing someone of murder and sentencing him to death with this kind of evidence, is it enough and would this be just? Moreover, the state of California considers an 8 weeks old or older fetus as a victim.
Rice, who played for the Baltimore Ravens, only received a two game suspension after video came out in 2014 proving his crime.

Goodell and his administration, have shown that profits and viewership take precedent over the well beings of people associated with the
O.J Simpson should have been claimed guilty instead of not guilty. Was O.J Simpson charged not guilty because of his race or maybe because of his fame? Even a decade after the verdict, an NBC News poll found those divisions remained. O.J Simpson went on trial for the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman 22 years ago. The heavy coverage started even before the trial began.
