When Tom Robinson went to court for his rape case, he had lost the case before the jury even had time to come up with the verdict. I can prove this by saying"Scout realizes that although it may appear that Tom is given a fair trial, “in the secret court of men’s hearts Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth.” Scout understands that, despite evidence of the contrary, the white jury will believe a white person instead of a black person"(Champion). Even though Tom was innocent just because he wasn 't white he was set to die the moment he stepped into the courtroom. If people saw past his skin color and actually looked at the evidence.
Which they thought they were not ever going to be caught for the murder. Dick believed it was for his “scams” he was doing on people in Nevada. Once they are in custody the officers start to question them about the night of the murder and the two “friends” turn on each other. Dick and Perry were both executed in 1965. “At the time not a soul was sleeping Holcomb heard them- four shotgun blasts that, all told, ended six human lives” (Capote 5).
Now what Tybalt is telling us is that Romeo has killed before but has only been sentenced to be a villain and not to death. So not only has he killed before he has bribed the judge of his real sentence. From the scenes, we don't see he would probably be off upping his kills per day always getting away with it. This is why I believe that Romeo and Juliet is not in fact a love story at all. Shown from the math above and the proof it is fair to say that Romeo is a serial killer.
The jury stares at the criminal from across the room. They are coming up with the final verdict that will change the criminal’s life forever. What if you had the power in your hands to decide whether the criminal is going to have a life that will change, or no life at all? Capital punishment has been a political debate for years because people argue whether or not the punishment is humane or if it deters crime. I believe the death penalty should be continued because it deters crime, and serves proper justice for the victims, as well as their families.
The Adnan Syed Case On January 13, 1999 Hae Min Lee, a senior in Woodlawn High School, Baltimore, Maryland disappeared. Almost a month later, on February 9, 1999, her body was found lifeless in Leakin Park. Moreover, the autopsy stated that the cause of the victim’s death was manual strangulation. In the most unfortunate cases, the crime was blamed on her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, who got convicted of first degree murder serving a life sentence in jail. Hae Lee’s death is shattering, but Adnan shouldn’t have been convicted of the crime because he is not guilty.
So, if we did away with all guns and knives there should be no Murder in the United States. Right? Actually that is incorrect. Numerous of people were also murdered with weapons other than guns and knives. Other weapons were used to kill 193 people in California, 136 people in Texas, and 99 people in New York (FBI: UCR, 2016).
Throughout the trial we learn more about what actually happened, the catalyst for Peter’s actions and the perhaps not so innocent victims. Peter is eventually convicted and is sentenced to life in prison. A month after the final sentencing, Peter commits suicide by stuffing a sock down his throat. One year after the shooting we are taken back to Sterling High where a memorial had been erected and a plaque calls the building a “safe harbor” the validity of which could be called into question, because for many of the students, despite social standing, didn’t feel that Sterling really was a “safe harbor.” Many schools and situations are not “safe harbors” for students. In fact, the idea that it is possible to create an environment that will be completely rid of any dangers is ludicrous, but expecting a child to be able to manage that rocky situation on their own is even more absurd.
Sometimess a person in peer pressure or because of bitting even if he has not commmited any crime, accept it and given a death sentence.

About 9,000 firearms deaths and 12,000 stabbings. So people who wanna kill others that bad aren’t gonna be stopped by telling them what they are doing is bad considering that 75% percent of shooters killed the self or had suicide by cop. So they don’t care because the law isn’t gonna affect them if they are dead which they usually intend to happen. Here's something else to get your brain thinking, Eric’s mom knew about his gun purchases and explosive purchases, she just did nothing. He came from an upper class family where everything was given to him without any effort on his side since day one.
The people opposing the death penalty usually believe that it shouldn’t be used because all life is precious. There are still 31 states that use the death penalty as of August 2017(Death Penalty). With this in mind, should the US government stop using the death penalty as a form of punishment? The People that oppose the death penalty believe that it shouldn’t be used because there’s better alternatives to deal with the criminals. “(...)in the United States in 1976, 138 innocent men and women have been released from death row, including
