Lewis couldn’t have taken both the shots himself, it would either leave him incapacitated or he was assassinated purposefully. The medical examiner said since the bullets got lodged into his head he had to be shot from a far distance. Pricilla Grinders statements weren’t adding up, every time she was questioned about what happened that night she had a different story. After Lewis’s death, Pricilla Grinders husband, Robert Grinder had a great amount of money. When Lewis was known to carry money on him.
Dick was the mastermind and instigator of the entire plan. Having already heard about the money from former cellmate Floyd Wells while in prison, Dick was not just interested in the money, but also about the teenage girl in the house whom he intends to rape. Dick used Perry as his personal servant using his mental illness as an advantage. Making him do his dirty work so just in case they got caught he could say he did not have anything to do with it. After the murder happened, Mr. Hickock showed no interest or even felt like discussing the murders.
The articles “Machine Bias” by Julia Angwin, et al. and “Should Prison Sentences Be Based on Crimes That Haven’t Been Committed Yet?” by Anna Maria Barry-Jester, et al. and the short story “The Minority Report” by Philip K. Dick share a common theme. Except that “The Minority Report” is a work of fiction, whereas “Machine Bias” and “Should Prison Sentences Be Based on Crimes That Haven’t Been Committed Yet?” are based on real life events. In other words the characters effected by Precrime are imaginary however the people who are mentioned in the articles are real, with real world consequences given to them by a potentially bias computer algorithm.
The locks are old on the doors and there are no guards about” (61). This shows how intelligent Equality 7-521 is and how he is starting to become slightly arrogant and not only break the government 's rules but disregard them as well. Later, he commits the most severe crime and escapes to the Uncharted Forest. While there he says “We knew that men would not follow us... we wished to be away, away from the City and from the air that touches upon the air of the City. So we walked on .
There was no sign of forced entry into the Joseph’s home, which meant that Claire’s killer would have been someone she felt comfortable letting into her home. A recent friend of the Joseph’s, Roger Payne, had earlier convictions for attacks on women. His clothing from the day of the murder, although already cleaned, still contained over 60 wool fibers matching Claire Joseph’s dress that day. Without a murder weapon, and the lack of any other clues, Payne was found guilty of Claire’s murder due to the solid forensic investigation. Case of Leanne Tiernan Murder (Hair) Victim: Leanne Tiernan Suspects: John Taylor, Wayne Keeley What Happened: Leanne Tiernan was found buried in a shallow grave 10 miles from her home.
Now although the office filled the warrant out he didn’t specify which unit in a multi-family housing unit was supposed to be search. Unfortunately, the police raided the wrong house or residence, which in returned caused them to kick down the door as well as terrorize an innocent family. Therefore, an innocent person could have gotten killed which has happened before in New York. However, the requirement that the location of a search warrant be specific isn’t “a technicality” but a core principle of the Fourth Amendment (washingtonpost.com. n.d.).
Dr. Mudd’s Punishment Dr. Mudd’s punishment was too harsh for his involvement with John wilkes Booth. Mudd had not known about Booth planning to assassinate the president. In the article it states, “The doctor rose from his bed, assisted Booth, set the fractured bone. But he did not know, he had no reason to suspect, his patient was a fugitive.” Dr. Mudd had no idea of Booth’s plan and if he did he would have been weary of Booth knowing that he could be on the run. But he didn’t.
Although Charles Cullen was the serial killer, the hospitals where Cullen worked were also at fault. In 60 minutes, the interviewer stated that Charles Cullen was a suspect long before his arrest. “Charles Cullen was the main suspect for poisoning random bags of saline…if you talk to the investigators there they’ll tell you Cullen was our man, we knew he was dirty. They couldn’t prove anything. It’s all circumstantial” (60 minutes, 4:30).
In the story “Where are you going, Where have you been?” by Joyce Carol Oats and “The monkey paw,” by W.W, Jacobs are both good examples of suspense in horror because they both have unsolved mysteries in the stories that leads the reader guessing and also include the actions of characters that show why one can view punishment as a lesson in the story. One can learn from these two stories that bad actions can lead to punishment. So next time it time for one to decide which way to go, which one will it
First person narration allows the reader to dig deeper into the story, and see the true meaning of scenes, and it allows them to understand the story better. This whole story would have had a different impact on the reader if they hadn’t known the narrator’s motivation for the crime committed. “The Tell Tale Heart” contrasts from the movie, “The Murder on the Orient Express” because the viewer was confused up until the end of the movie, for then did they figure out the character’s motives for committing the murder. Some will say it was much less enjoyable because there were no motives to be found until the very end, whereas first person narration can tell us right from the
The author gave good evidence that provided a human resource to find out the link between media coverage and “copycat” shootings. (Warren). The strengthens of this article is that Warren gave good evidence towards his argument. Also, his weaknesses is that Warren did not give the reader more detail towards his
Regardless of the cigarette, many other factors contributed to the lethality of the blaze. The factory was designed to fit as many sewing tables and people in it as possible (the factory was designed to maximize capacity for sewing tables and people), but the design for efficiency provided little room for maneuverability. The girls were “crawling over the cutting tables” to escape the flames because of the narrow paths between tables and machinery. Isaac Harris’ design resulted in the impeded flight of workers to the exits while Max Blanck’s fear of “his employees [robbing] him blind” kept the doors locked. The managers and owners kept the Washington Place door locked during business hours; the only door unlocked was the Green Street door, but it was monitored for stolen material hidden in employee’s purses.
This eliminates Samuel Schmidt from committing the crime because he could not have broke the glass from the inside. Another piece of evidence that we have gathered was that the hotel room was over checked. If the maid had decided to go ahead and steal the necklace, she would of have a better idea of where the necklace was, and most likely would of cleaned up all of the evidence.
Firemen searched the building searching if their was any evidence on how the fire was started and discovered something even more important. They figured out that during the fire the doors were locked which prevented the girls to get out of the building. “... we never went out the front door. We always went one by one out the back. There was a man there searching, because the people were afraid we would take something, so that door was always locked” (Leap for Life, Leap for Death).
The case of Mapp versus Ohio became very contentious during the 1960s. The verdict in this case altered history in a gigantic way, and continues to effect the legal system even today. A search warrant was not present when police showed up at Dollree Mapp’s house on May 23rd, 1957. The police entered the home in search of a bombing suspect they deemed was housed in Cleveland, Ohio with Mapp. Also, she declined their entry because they did not have a search warrant, but they proceeded in anyways.
