Although their lives were short, they made a huge impact on history, now known around the country as legendary rogue lovers who went down together. Millions of Americans in the 1930’s were engrossed in their story, catching up by reading the giant headlines on the front pages of newspapers. They read of many robberies, car thefts, and terrifying murders; it was like reading an enticing novel or watching a new movie. However, the story was much different in Bonnie and Clyde's eyes. In the first person point-of-view, evading police capture and being on the run must have been extremely terrifying.
Hitler’s principal motivation as the Nazi leader was the extermination of Jewish people. Thomas J. Watson founded IBM in 1911 and was president of his company. IBM at that point developed the predecessor of current computers, the punched card, which was essential for the administration of the United States’ Social Security Act of 1935. Hitler found admiration for his development and recognized Watson in 1937 with the "Das Verdienstkreuz des ordens vom Deutschen Adler" (The Cross of Merit of the Order of the German Eagle) which was the most unique form of appreciation that Hitler could concede to ambassadors, diplomats, and important foreign personalities. It was received among prominent figures such as Henry Ford, and James D. Mooney.
The Innocence project was founded at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of law located at Yeshiva University and is a public organization which committed itself to the exoneration of falsely convicted individuals through deoxyribonucleic acid testing. In 2004 The Innocence Project became a nonprofit organization, continuing its close affiliation with Cardozo. Since the founding of The Innocence Project it has spread throughout the nation, aiding those who have nowhere else to turn. Since the first DNA exoneration in 1989, exonerations have been won in 37 states, totaling 337 exonerations. To date more than “337 people in the United States have been exonerated by DNA testing, including 20 individuals who were at one time sentenced to death” (The Innocence Project).
Nick Gordon 's response to the $40 million lawsuit was packed with claims and full of shocking revelations for the murder of Bobbi Kristina Brown could have been caught on video.

On the surface, this statement may sound like brass bravado. A quick look into Manson’s childhood however and one might be inclined to question that notion. In this report, I will explain and utilize Michael R. Gottfredson and Travis Hirschi’s “A General Theory of Crime” and Edwin Sutherland’s “Differential Association” to analyze his involvement in the 1969 killing spree. Although Manson had a very lengthy criminal history, his infamy came from his involvement in series of killings dub the Tate-LaBianca murders by the media. On August 09, 1969, Manson ordered members of his
For the past two decades, “The Innocence Project” with the help of updated science methods have worked relentlessly to get innocent people out of prison. Through DNA testing, they have been able to find new evidence that have freed hundreds of prisoners who were wrongfully convicted. Other factors such as eyewitness misidentification, false confessions, government misconduct, and inadequate defense also played keys roles in the wrongful convictions. The case that I would I would like to highlight today is that of, Johnnie Lindsey. Johnnie Lindsey was a 30-year old laundry worker who was falsely accused of rape.
Yet, in 2006, Wiesel joined Oprah Winfrey for a T.V special on a trip back to Auschwitz and again in 2009, with President Obama and Angela Merkle Chancellor of Germany as company.

The tragic hero that I am describing in this essay goes by the name of Henry Jones Jr., but is more widely recognized by his nickname, Indiana Jones, which was given to him during his times of archaeological quests to retrieve ancient artifacts. Jones worked as a college professor in Marshall College, the University of Princeton, and Barnett College, where he expertised in archaeological studies. His starter movie, Raiders of The Last Ark, saw him being recruited by the United States Government to discover the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis. In the film, Indy shows many courageous feats, as well as his fair share of misadventures that see him being held captive in the Nazi’s hands and the ark now out of his possession. Indiana Jones
They risked their lives. This story involved significant people who could cause the reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein a lot of trouble, but Woodward and Bernstein did whatever it took to get the information and sources they needed. Woodward communicated with his source Deep Throat through a red flag in his flower pot and The New York Times, and then they would meet in a parking garage late at night to obtain information. Woodward and Bernstein went door-to-door to peoples’ homes to interview them about who was involved in the Watergate scandal and where and how the money from the Committee to Re-elect the President was used. They did this, so the people being interviewed would feel safer and more comfortable sharing information, because they knew people were watching them.
At that point bootleggers had a serious need for protection which introduced high levels of violence. Capone is seen as playing an important role in the victories of Republican William Hale Thompson, especially in the 1927 mayoral race when Thompson campaigned for a wide open town hinting that he would reopen illegal salons. Such a proclamation helped his campaign gain the support of Capone which decided to give him a contribution of $250,000. In addition voting booths were targeted by Capone's bombers in parts where Thompson's opponents were thought to have more support, this caused the murder of lawyer Octavius Granady, an African American who challenged Thompson's candidate for the African American vote, and was chased through the streets on polling day before
who made them, his father George. Was the killer finally found? Steve’s account and theories were among the most interesting that I found in researching The Black Dahlia. As years went on Steve dove deeper and deeper into the death of Elizabeth Short and even wrote a bestseller about the case. It was titled The Black Dahlia Avenger that came out in 2003, which was the named dubbed to the killer of short in the media at the time.
