And have many mistakes to see that he was the killer, but still say that he was not guilty, and let him walk free.As it started out with the murder of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman on June 13, 1994. As LAPD convicted O.J simpson for the murder, as the trial lasted for 10 months of arguments and disagreements, and where there was so many evidence of O.J that led him to be the killer of Nicole Simpson, and as October 3, 1995 he was found not guilty of the murder. But didn’t stop him to be a criminal and was sentence to jail for his behavior. As this trial showed us, the issues of law enforcement that still exist in our country, as this trial will be remembered for it creating a greater awareness of domestic violence issues, and a lessons of how the trial system work, for a criminal to be innocent tell the juries have proof that he was guilty. But this trial showed have taught the country to be better and prepared for the unbelievable decision this country
Willingham was actually innocent. The fire was an accident. The truth got out many years too late though, and Willingham died by lethal injection on February 17, 2004 at the age of 36 (Eric). From 1973 to 2015, more than 150 innocent men and women have been sentenced to death row. The killing of the falsely accused is only one of the several major problems that the highly controversial death penalty faces.
OJ then retired in 1979 after a legendary football career. Simpson was then also accepted into the hall of fame in 1985. OJ also divorced his first wife in 1979, and his second wife in 1992. Two years later Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were both found stabbed to death outside of their condominium on June 12th 1994. After evidence was revealed OJ Simpson was suspected of the Murder, but he pleaded “Absolutely, Positively,100%, not guilty”(para)(O.J.
OJ Simpson was a very achieved person player until he made one big mistake. The trial of OJ Simpson was a long stressful process to prove a star innocent or guilty of murder. This took Place in the state of California on October 3, 1995. OJ was tried for a murder crime of his ex-wife and another man. In the end OJ turned out to be not guilty of this crime.
That all changed when his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman were found stabbed to death outside Nicole’s condominium. OJ Simpson was a prime suspect and controversy swirled for years about the facts and circumstances of the murder. However, in 1995, Simpson was acquitted.
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
Even in this situation though, Malcolm was wary of Macduff. Being suspicious actually helped both Malcolm and Macduff into seeing the clearer picture. A fairly old case has also been solved due to lack of trust also. “Jack Daniel McCullough, a 75-year-old military veteran and former police officer from Seattle, was convicted in 2012 of the abduction and murder of Maria Ridulph.... A judge hearing the case without a jury found McCullough guilty after a weeklong trial” (O’Neill). Jack McCullough wouldn’t be free if it weren’t for Richard Schmack’s, the state attorney, skepticism of the case.
Should the death penalty be accepted even though god said “thou shalt not kill”. The death penalty was outlawed in 1950 because an innocent man was blamed for the death of his wife and daughter. In 1953 a man overheard the officers conversation about how they were going to execute him and the prisoner escaped from prison and as time went by he was involved in a bad situation at a bar. Meanwhile, one of the few things that represents death penalty is killing a cat on accident or on purpose. In addition, Jails pay over $9 million a year just to have the
The Brown and Goldman families filed a civil suit against Simpson, and on February 4, 1997, the jury found Simpson "responsible" for the deaths. The families were granted $33.5 million of Simpson’s money due to wrongful deaths. Currently, Simpson is serving 33 years in Lovelock Correctional Center prison for robbery, kidnapping, and other charges. This makes me think… Is he finally getting what he deserves OR is this just a coincidence? As a society we should spend more time focused on a young man a woman that lost their lives and bring justice to them and their families.
I am 21 and for as long as I can remember I have heard many stories about innocent people being accused of and being punished for crimes they did not commit. On Monday, March 20th of this year, I met Anthony Ray Hinton and learned about his story. Arrested on suspicion of two capital murders at age 29. He was convicted and sentenced to death despite having a reliable alibi and passing a polygraph test. It was only after repeated efforts by the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) team that the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously overturned his conviction based on his attorney’s deficient representation and he was eventually exonerated after 30 years in solitary confinement on Friday, April 3rd, 2015.
