In the eyes of the law, justice was initially served in the Ariel Castro kidnapping trial because he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole (Glatt 316). However, Castro received better treatment than his victims, and committed suicide one month after his sentence, so the sliver of justice that was originally served, was now an injustice to his captives. Ariel Castro was abused early in his life and felt abandoned when his mother moved to the United States and left him with his grandmother. After four years, Castro’s mother finally moved him to the Pennsylvania, but later relocated to Cleveland. He led a normal teenage life (Glatt 7-10).
Due to our close relations with the U.S at this time, it also created a huge hatred for the Japanese in Canada(Sharpe 8). Canada did not join the war until September 10th 1939 and around this time Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King re-invoked the War Measures Act. No changes were made to this act since the use of it during World War I. The most enacted part of this act forced any Canadians of Japanese descent, who were mostly the ones affected by the act, to attend concentration camps while also having their property and items taken from them by the government(Montgomery par 5). The act also sent the Mayor of Montreal, Camillien Houde, who spoke to his citizens against conscription to a concentration camp (Belanger par 14).

Within minutes after the final ruling was released, the NHL head office in Montreal was receiving hundreds of phone calls from enraged fans, many of them making death threats against NHL President Clarence Campbell. Even though fans were outraged by the suspension, the general feeling around the league was that the punishment could have been more severe, Detroit Red Wings general manager said that Campbell “could do no less” and “I thought he would be suspended until January 1 of next season.” Ted Lindsay, Red Wing forward who had been suspended earlier that season for a similar incident, expressed the strong opinion that Richard was lucky to not get suspended for life. Nevertheless public outrage still poured in about what fans thought was excessive
Store windows were smashed and tramway rails ripped up. In all, four unarmed civilians were killed and dozens injured. English and French Canada hadn 't been so divided since Louis Riel was hanged in 1885. When the war ends, the fallout of the conscription issue would continue long after. For many years the Conservative Party, which had brought in conscription, will find it hard to get votes in Quebec.

However, upon release, Capone was immediately admitted to a mental hospital in Baltimore where he remained for three years. Capone was suffering from untreated syphilis he had contracted as a young man and it had caused brain damage and dementia (History.com).
The citizens in “The Hangman” would have been more triumphant if the witnesses had stepped up and supported the solitary protester. When the protester shames the Hangman and calls him a murderer, the other townsmen “[gives] him way, and no one spoke/ Out of fear of his Hangman’s cloak (Ogden 51-52). Despite his bold actions, no bystander is brave enough to stand with him. Likewise, during the Holocaust, members who stood up, but did not have enough support from their fellow bystanders, also failed. The upstanders, much like the protestor in the Hangman, were all aware of the possible danger that they could have been in.

William R. Rice, the commander of an American Legion post, sarcastically complimented Hoover on revealing his, “sadistic principles of government,” to the nation (Lisio 39). Additionally, the Veterans Central Rank and File Committee, ridiculed the unjust treatment of the protestors, stating, “We got bullets in 1917. Many of us [veterans] were maimed and crippled for life. In 1932 we get the bullets and gas of the police, as we did in Washington, and the troops, which Hoover called put against us.
