David Cash was not charged with anything, the police even confirmed that he did not do anything wrong, however, college classmates, community members, mothers, radio hosts, and many others were furious and demanded that something needed to be done. They tried to get him kicked out of college, arrested, and even create a law requiring Samaritans to intervene and report crime. However, all efforts failed, Cash now lives his life with the haunting images of a friend raping, beating, and killing a young girl. But why? Why would Cash just sit back and stay quiet while this crime was going on?
(general 239) Those in authority are corrupt and Mr.Chiu attempts to use logic and reason with them. He is still a law abiding citizen but his frustration causes him to grow impatient with those in charge. “ Now you can admit you are guilty,” the chief said[...] “We won’t punish you severely provided you write a self-criticism[...] Mr. Chiu cried.
When Sal heard that her mother was going to have another child she didn’t like it. She wanted it to just be her mother, her father, and her. Sal thought they were perfect and that they didn’t need any more kids. Her mom and dad are really excited for the baby, but Sal didn’t want any siblings. Sal says, “As the baby grew inside her.
Things that prove Adnan’s innocence are the breakup between him and Hae, how Adnan thought about and his feelings towards Hae, how the times and stories told with others didn’t suit well, and his alibi. Additionally, his DNA didn’t match with items found near Hae and her autopsy and medical evidence didn’ match the stories told by Jay, inaccurate stories that the state relied on. As has been noted, the past relationship and breakup had a big part in Adnan’s conviction, however according to many people, this doesn’t add up. The motive for this murder, claimed by the state, was that Adnan was upset about the breakup between
In Philip Caputo’s book, “A rumor of war”, I do not believe that his trial was really fair. They basically just said this your choice for the easy way out or you can go the hard way. If Crowe, the marine who had his trial before Caputo, did not be found not guilty, I believe that Caputo’s outcome would have been different. However, it did work out in his favor as he were dropped from all charges except the last charge. How they got to this point, Caputo, in anger, went into search for two prisoners and at the time did not care if they killed them.
The Marines in the movie never accept responsibility for what they did until they are finally convicted, even then Downey still doesn't understand why they were convicted. This is similar to Calley when he was on the stand for the My Lai massacre. He based his entire defense argument on the fact that he was merely following an order and his actions were not out of line. His actions could also have been caused because he became overwhelmed with the war, and took out his tension on the people of Son Lai, similar to how the guards treated of prisoners at Abu Ghraib. This may be why there was was never any sign of remorse from anyone; the guards, Calley, Dawson and Downey.
Throughout the whole trial there are multiple times when anyone who reads the novel knows that he is not getting a fair shake. The first time is when Atticus delivers his closing remarks and he says something that is very powerful and also very true about the case and Tom receiving an unfair trial, “To begin with, this case should never have come to trial. This case is as simple as black and white” (Lee 203). What Atticus explains is that no matter how plain it is to everyone that Tom is innocent and could not have commited the crime, it does not matter because one thing is certain, Tom is black. And the jury being white means he has no chance at winning, it’s truly sad, but during the time of the trial that 's just how society works.
Juror Seven asks the men, “Why didn’t his lawyer bring up all these points?” (Rose 327) Even the men in the jury room realized that the boy’s case was not properly presented. Due to this, the lawyer could have taken more time to help the boy’s chance of receiving an innocent verdict. “He hardly seemed interested” (Rose 318).
Now here the movie stats two friends were driving namely Billy Gambini and Stan Rothenstein in between they stopped at a convenience store to buy a can of Tuna at the time of leaving the store they head a sound of gun, a clerk was short and Bill and Stan was arrested in reference with the murder, bill called his cousin Vincent Gambini, an attorney in the family who has no trial experience.

After Meursault murders the Arab, a curious magistrate examines him about his reasoning. The magistrate tries to convert Meursault to Christianity by showing him a silver crucifix and telling him that God will forgive him if he repents. When the magistrate asks him if he believes in God, Meursault continually says that he does not. The magistrate then tells Meursault that he has “never seen a soul as hardened as [his]” (69). The magistrate cannot understand how Meursault does not believe that God suffered for his sins.
I ask that you not build up any prejudice towards my client as I want him to have a fair and just trial. I would also ask that you reject the defense theories of the case. The defense will try and build up Mr. Gotti as a man of unfortunate circumstances. They will try and convince you that he came from a poor family and had no choice but to resort to crime, in order to provide for himself and his growing family. Those facts are irrelevant to the fact that my client is dead and has a wife with no husband and children with no father.
However, the police while investigating the incident police never found a gun with or near the boys. The jury didn’t care they just wanted to keep the police protected so we had protection. Police, therefore, need better training. If there would have had better training, they would have known the boys were unarmed. Also, police are killing innocent people who are just enjoying their daily lives.
Some of the citizens signed a petition stating they never saw any signs that the arrested women had dealings with the devil, and Judge Danforth wasn’t happy. “... Mr. Cheever have warrants drawn for all of these arrests for examination” (Miller 1253). With this petition going around is showing that the court may be wrong, and it is showing weakness from the court. Judge Danforth will do anything to protect him and make sure no one questions the court.
What happened? The current detective, Mr. Towers, said they were trying to locate a person of interest, but could not find him, Twyla found him, in jail. She has tried to call the police department to report this finding, no one will talk to her. How is it that a civilian can find this individual, but the detective on the case can not? The current detective said he wants to go question people, but his biggest fear is that they won 't want to talk to him.
The defense attorney. As Jack’s defense attorney, I would first argue that the police did not find any evidence that Jack stole anything. The only physical evidence was found on Diane. Also, Jack did not admit to any wrong doing.
