7 The Night Stalker Thestar.com Richard Ram was known as the Night Stalker and during his 8 month killing spree during the 1980’s he killed 14 victims. The self-proclaimed Satanist broke into homes, burgalured, raped, and killed, and once captured seemed to enjoy the publicity and media attention. And his crimes attracted a lot of attention. On the first day of his trial he entered the courtroom, held out his hand, which had a pentagram drawn on it, and shouted, “Hail Satan!” He never expressed any type of guilt or remorse for his crimes.

Over 150 men and women were accused and arrested for witchcraft and some were executed.10 The turning point for the Salem Witch Trials was the mass execution that took place on Sept. 22, 1962.11 (pg81-113) The Puritans, the court and even the Reverend were realizing that they made a mistake. After almost a year of terror, the trials were over. Over twenty innocent lives were lost. Those who were not the same as everyone else were given the title of a witch. Instead of being accepted as individuals, they were ousted, persecuted, and some executed.

Another angle of devastation is the physical and mental effects it can have on a person who abuses drugs. It can affect your overall health, certain brain functions and sometimes even cause death.

The workers, scientist, and doctors who carried out these experiments called the prisoners used as test subjects “logs” to separate any type of emotional feelings or remorse they may have for what they were doing to these poor
This quote shows that Boll weevil is capable of shooting someone (Cecil), therefore making him murderous, similarily to war. Boll weevil and war are similar as they are both devastating. Boll weevil causes devastation to the Redmond family by trying to put them on a ship to Boston (102), trying to frame Fortune for Cecil’s death (121), and trying to steal their freedom papers to give them to Cecil (66). These events would have been devastating to the Redmonds because they would loose all their oppourtunities in Boston, Fortune would be in jail for a wrongfully accused crime, and loosing their slave papers means they would be put back into the horrible conditions and life of
In the texts The Pillowman by Martin McDonagh (2003) and Geek Love by Katherine Dunn (1989) the patterns of cause and effect are rife throughout the stories. In The Pillowman the character Michal kills two children because he says his brother Katurian's stories told him to do so. The cause and effect here is mainly of a Mental sort, writing being something that affects the brain causing it to act. Whereas in Geek Love the most prominent cause and effect comes from the parents of the main protagonists act of experimenting with different substances during pregnancy and therefore causing deformities in their children, this is more of a physical cause and effect rather than metal. The aim of this essay, then, is to explore these two different types of cause and

The Jews were convinced by the Nazis that they were just being relocated, but they were going to the so-called “Shower rooms,” but they were really gas chambers disguised(Blohm 48). Many of the concentration camps were improper, lacked protection from the weather, and one was just a series of tunnels inside a mountain that the Jews were forced on to build a secret weapon(Blohm 28) Many different countries did liberate the Jews.
Mystery Mania: Research Essay The Salem Witch trials were known as the largest witch trial in history. At that time, supernatural beings and Satan were considered part of everyday life, so when an epidemic of fits of madness broke out within the nation, mostly targeting young girls, people began to panic and blamed all this on the practice of black magic. A total of about two-dozen people were trialed and executed. But was it really because of witchcraft that people were having fits, and what were the strange sightings around the town of Salem? A few scientific theories began to emerge as more research was done, and what it seemed to come to was that the supposed witchcraft victims were either suffering from medical infection or hysteria.
However, the showers they were told to march to were truly gas chambers in disguise. Once inside the chambers the detainees were exposed to a poisonous gas labeled Zyklon B. Those prisoners that were fit to work were forced to labor from the time they woke to the time they were told to sleep and hardly got anything to eat. Many died from starvation, disease, brutal living conditions, torture or execution by gunshot. Others died from barbaric medical experiments or gassings.
