The reason I believe this was an important cause because it was, “ the first episode which resulted in the loss of life.” It is stated that, “Four Bostonians were killed when Redcoats fired into an angry mob.” The reason why this tragic event happened was because apparently an American began to patronize a Redcoat named John Goldfinch standing guard. Another Redcoat nearby, named Hugh White, joined Goldfinch to defend him. White became agitated and struck the patriot in the face with his musket. When the patriot cried out in pain, a mob of fifty or so Bostonians gathered. Goldfinch retreated to the nearby
On a cold night of March 5, 1770 in Boston, Massachusetts, nine British soldiers fired shots into a crowd of one hundred Bostonians. Five were fatally injured or killed in the shooting, and some of the people killed were not even in the mob. This caused major corruption amongst the town, across the state, even across what was then America. Captain Preston, who ordered all to fire, was found innocent and two soldiers were convicted of manslaughter. This was named as the Boston Massacre, which had a lot to do with how America is today.
Don’t drink the kool-aid. A common quote for don't follow blindly has a little darker meaning than most know. It comes from a tragic event where more than 900 people died a third of them being children. On November 18th 1978, in Jonestown Guyana there was a mass suicide of more than 900 cult members. This event was orchestrated by Jim Jones who through the trust he was given he led them astray.
Officers cannot always believe what people tell them and the officers might have had the mindset that they were being lie to by the party goers. The officers probably did not believe that the party goers didn’t know they shouldn’t be there. This is because even though the party goers stated that Peaches just moved in there was no boxes and there was a great lack of furniture. The case states there was a mattress. There was a fridge with food in it and some toiletries but that was it.
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.
When comparing the two one has to look at the fact that individuals were upset about what happened to the United States soldiers during the Bataan Death March even though years prior the United States put the Native Americans in an identical situation during the Trail of Tears of 1838. The United State caused the death of Several Native Americans with no sympathy but willingly executed a man for doing the exact thing that their government allowed. When comparing these two major events, the Trail of Tears and the Bataan Death March, one
The Holocaust have many individuals that believe what the Nazi did to the Jews was blown out of proportion. These groups of people state that the Nazis did not kill as many as the six million Jews that were reported murdered by the Nazi party, that the ovens the party used to kill Jews did not exist at all or were used for different purposes or that the film used after the war depicting the war crimes by the party was actually manipulated by the Allies against the Nazi party as propaganda. However, the Nazis did actually kill over six million Jews and the ovens in fact were used to exterminate the Jews while at these camps and due to the horrific reality of the situation, people are made to believe that this mass extermination of a ethnic group did not exist. When the war ended, the Allies came up with a estimate amount of Jews that died during the war in these extermination camps set up by the Nazis. That number came to be around six million Jews, political prisoners, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and homosexuals.
This was meant to ensure that the governors and judges would comply with Britain. The Boston Massacre happened when a British soldier shot and killed five colonists causing outrage among them. The Boston Tea Party was when the colonists decided to dump
As this report highlights, no Sikh was killed in Delhi on October 31, 1984, although the passing away of Mrs. Gandhi became known by about 10.30 A.M. on that day. It was on 1st November and the two succeeding days that a massacre of hundreds of Sikhs and the burning and looting of their shops and houses took place. The rioting was organised by a number of amoral politicians who are habitually associated with anti-social elements and down-right criminals. That is the reason why looting was so extensive and why the killing of Sikhs was attended with unparalleled brutally. According to official tolls, only in Delhi total no.
The documentary was a very interesting revisiting of my childhood education on Ninoy Aquino’s assassination. My memories on Ninoy’s killer conjure only three names: Rolando Galman, Fabian Ver, and Ferdinand Marcos. However, after watching the videos, it seems like the truth is still very much blurred. Before delving into the symbolism of Ninoy’s death, I would like to share my own conjectures on the perpetrators and their objectives. Personally, I think the indisputable facts are that (1) Ninoy was shot in the head by someone who was in an elevated position behind him (as shown by the autopsy), (2) there were at least two people who were tasked to be the killers at the actual scene (as shown by the audio “Ako na” and “Pusila”), and (3) one of those tasked killers was from the Visayas or Mindanao
