In my English class I read the book called Monster written by Walter Dean Myers. It was about a young man called Steve Harmon who was arrested for allegedly being a part of a crime gone horribly wrong, which sadly resulted in a man losing his life. It also spoke about what Steve had to endure throughout that entire process of that trail. In the end even tho Steve knew that the crime will occur he still was found not guilty. I believe that Steve Harmon should have been found not guilty because, he did not give a signal and he also did not receive any part of the money that taken from the robbery.
Think about how often people get arrested and how often trials are held every year, let alone everyday. Oftentimes, innocent people are accused and charged for a crime that wasn’t there fault. This was the case for Adnan Syed, an innocent guy who was put in jail for a murder case. On January 13, 1999, Hae Min Lee was murdered at the age of 17. The evidence for this case was very unexplainable, but of course, the state went after Hae’s ex-boyfriend Adnan who really had nothing to do with the murder.
This was the beginning of the end of most Americans respect and adoration for OJ Simpson. OJ became the prime suspect of their murders. This case is well known to this day for many reasons, including the LAPD’s tampering with evidence. One way the LAPD ignored the law is when they entered OJ’s home without talking to OJ, and without a search warrant. This resulted in an illegal search where the evidence that was found would not be admissible in court.
People believed Ross Sulivan was the Zodiac due to his suspicious behavior and dress attire, also where he lived. Other people believe Earl Best was the true Zodiac because of his child’s book and his scar that is just too much like the Zodiac’s for it to be a mere coincidence. People have been studying the Zodiac for years trying to figure out who he really was but alas, no one has ever truly been proven guilty. Even though the Zodiac killer has never been caught for his 5 murders, in the grand scheme of things this is a miniscule amount, for according to pewresearch.org 62% of homicides and murders go
He was found guilty because of a murder case of his friend Perry. The evidence that convicted James was three hair samples that found in James 's van, the RCMP said they were Harder 's. But before James’s arrest, he committed a crime along with his friend Perry. They were running a “chop shop,” they cut apart stolen vehicles and sold the parts. In November 1989, the police arrested both James and Perry.
I believe that Jay is guilty because he never gave a perfectly in detail response that would show otherwise. He changed his story multiple times. He added information sometimes and would took some away. He had a guilty look on his face in pictures and when he talked there was something about his tone of voice that made me think ‘guilty.’ Jay came in months later to talk about what happened that day and he owned up to being an assist to murder. I feel that he should have gotten some time in jail because he claims to have been there at the scene and helped to bury Hae.
(Wikipedia, n.d.) Although he parents felt that the three of those men knew where their daughter was, they were never able to have closure as to what happened to their daughter. After 10 years man by the name of Jurrien de Jong claimed to have known where Natalee was buried but the officials did not want to believe this man. He said that she was buried in a crawl space at the Marriott vacation property in Aruba. (CNN, 2015)He supposedly saw a young girl being chased that night that she went missing. He assumed they were playing until he saw her carrying her.
As a result of this hatred, and also because the family of the accused was always suspicious, he was tried as a warlock a month later. During his entire trial, he refused to plead, because he felt his guilt was already decided. As a result of this deadly silence, he was pressed to death on September 19, 1692, being the only person to be pressed to death in the Trials. Tituba was the Parris’ Caribbean slave, whose origins came from West India. As a result of this heritage, she was feared by her Puritan masters.
After the trial, Bob Ewell swears to Atticus that “he’d get him if it took the rest of his life” (290). He then attempts to murder both Jem and Scout, succeeds in seriously injuring Jem, and then gets murdered himself. All of the three events above would have been avoided if Mayella had been honest during the trial, putting the responsibility on Mayella. Her dishonesty prolonged the aftermath of the trial for much longer than necessary and caused a domino effect of tragic events, none of which were desirable in any way. As shown above, the actions of Mayella Ewell during the trial of Tom Robinson prove that ultimately, she is more villain than
Let’s Get Serial: The Unsolved Story of Woodland High School’s Murder Back in 1999, on January 13th right after school lets out in Baltimore city, Hae Min Lee’s life is taken from her. The holes and unanswered questions in her case make it intriguing, and confusing to answer who did it? Adnan Syed, Hae’s ex-boyfriend is the one they ultimately end up turning to as the perpetrator of the crime. Adnan has sentenced a life penalty for the felony. Even though there could be a refute with the evidence saying Adnan was guilty, there is too little to make a strong case with no question or hard evidence counteracting why he is innocent.
One evening, a woman, Hae Min Lee was killed in the city of Baltimore in 1999. Apparently, Hae Min Lee’s ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed has been convicted, and has since been sentenced to life in prison, for the past 15 years. For fifteen years, he maintains to be innocent to this day. The perpetrator of Hae Min Lee’s murder is done by a third-party with the assistance of Jay, because Adnan was seen elsewhere at the time when Hae was supposedly killed. Adnan’s trial was not a fair trial.
No indictment. And the sad part is if I had known what I know now then I would have not been so surprised. This justice system is unfair, to all of its citzens, but more so black and brown citizens. Michael Brown and his family deserved for justice to brought. Some try and say that michael was a thug or like to bring up the fact that he had possible stolen something but the fact remains that an unarmed teen was killed by a police officer.
