Involuntary manslaughter is the unintentional killing of another, because of a negligent of unlawful act.

Since the founding of our judicial system there have always been individuals claiming innocence to a crime that they have been found guilty of, traditionally, after their sentencing no matter how innocent they may or may not be would have to serve, live and possibly die by the decision of their peers. The Innocence Project, founded in 1992 by Barry C. Scheck alongside Peter J. Neufeld faces this issue by challenging the sentencing of convicted individuals who claim their innocence and have factual ground to stand upon. The Innocence Project uses the recent advances in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) testing to prove their client’s innocence by using methods that were not available, too primitive or not provided to their clients during their investigation,
By creating a story in which every character has committed a crime, Christie explores different human responses to the burden of a guilty conscience.

Vigilantism is justice taken upon those who did wrong by someone other than law enforcement. Agatha Christie uses vigilantism in ATTWN to showcase the deception found in her story. An example of vigilantism in ATTWN, is when Justice Wargrave took the law into his hands and decided be the judge, jury, and executioner. I believe this because the author wrote” I was restrained and hampered by my innate sense of justice. The innocent must not suffer.” (Christie) An example of vigilantism in Man Accused in Vigilante Case Charged With Murder is “Police also say Hernandez remorsefully admitted to the shooting, saying he only wanted to make a citizen 's arrest.” (Trujillo) These vigilantes are similar because they both believe in their own way they
In 1984 Kirk Bloodsworth was convicted of the rape and murder of a nine-year-old girl and sentenced to the gas chamber an outcome that rested largely on the testimony of five eyewitnesses. One third of these overturned cases rested on the testimony of two or more mistaken eyewitnesses. How could so many eyewitnesses be wrong? Eyewitness identification typically involves selecting the alleged perpetrator from a police lineup, but it can also be based on police sketches and other methods. Soon after selecting a suspect, eyewitnesses are asked to make a formal statement confirming the ID and to try to recall any other details about events surrounding the crime.
This documentary was about a fifteen year old boy named Brenton Butler who was framed by the police. Brenton Butler was arrested and charged with the murder of Mary Ann Stephens.

Jay had several inconsistencies, some are major, and some, perhaps minor. The ones that stands out the most are appalling, such as the fact that he openingly stated to police and jury that he will lie avoiding criminal punishment. In one occasion with the police, he said Adnan “knows I sold drugs… he could get me locked up for that.” In further interviews, there are times when he would say Adnan asked him one day ago, same day, and even four to five days ago to help assist him in such murder. When asked where Adnan killed Hae, there were several different responses, including Best Buy, Woodlawn Public Library, and Patapsco State Park, which haven’t been brought up since.

In the wake of listening to it, they flipped the tape over and found a recorded discussion in which Myers griped intensely that he was being compelled to frame McMillian, whom he didn 't have the faintest idea, for a crime neither of them had any part in. Further examination uncovered that McMillian 's had just been changed over to a "Low-rider" six months after the crime occurred, and that prosecutors had disguised data around a witness who had seen the casualty alive after the time the prosecutors asserted that McMillian had killed her. The two witnesses who had affirmed that they had seen McMillian 's truck withdrawn their affirmation, and conceded that they lied at trial.

On March 2, 1993, prosecutors rejected charges against McMillian and he was discharged.
