Throughout In Cold Blood, a true-crime novel based on a multiple murder, author Truman Capote gives a more personal insight on the topic while standing up for the mentally ill and verbalizing his personal beliefs on how the they should be treated and viewed in the criminal justice system. Within In Cold Blood, Capote tells about the events leading up to the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers. During the trial, both of the criminals were declared mentally ill, but were still authorized to stand trial and execution as they had been proven to have the ability to decide between right and wrong, and therefore were considered mentally
S could be a possible suspect in the murder of Hae, Adnan loved Hae and he wouldn’t that upset to just go kill her, and Jay kept changing his alibi about what happened. Even Jay is saying that he found Hae’s body in the back of Adnan’s car, Adnan is ultimately innocent because Jay could have took part in the crime somehow and he could be possibly covering something up. What I learned most from this project is that people can’t trust everyone. They can stab them in the back or make up lies but all the lying and false accusations can make people be involved in crimes or tough situations. From what had happened to Adnan, readers can tell that Adnan couldn’t trust Jay because he was telling wrong information the

Although the justice system cannot get every case completely correct, using a court builds a standardized procedure in order to obtain the most accurate results. In the end, it would decipher what level of contribution a person had in a murder and establish a justifiable
Abstract The Uniform Crime Report Program is a national program set to voluntarily report a crime to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI recognized a need for national crime statistics to do its job more effectively (“About the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program,” n.d.). According to James Inciardi, it was recognized that the UCR had problems in 1978 as they were “incomplete and structurally biased” which made crimes into myths instead of reality (Inciardi, 1978, pg. 3). The statistics are submitted by cities, counties, and states nationwide.
Criminal Justice is the system of institutions of governments directed at upholding social control; police, courts, and corrections. Criminology is the study of all the factors of why criminals commit certain crimes. Laws and Society ask where the law comes from. All three are interrelated; no law, no crime.

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. There are crossroads with the Jay Wilds- a friend of Adnan 's at the time hearing, along with the cellphone records. “Jay 's story wasn 't just the foundation of the state 's case against Adnan. It was the state 's case against Adnan”(Sarah Kenick). Adnan Syed was wrongfully convicted due to unsettled answers and evidence in the hearings of Jay Wilds and contradicting cellphone records.

Use of excessive force leads to the death of the citizen. Later, the trial goes to court as a partial case and authorities plead not guilty. In defense of authorities’ improper police procedures, the authorities commonly claim that their life was in danger or saw the unarmed victim reach for a weapon. Without sufficient evidence, authorities are capable of breaking free from murder charges. Body cameras are the solution to insufficient evidence of police brutality cases.
