Simmons picked up the gifts and then drove home to wait out the weekend. On Monday, December 28th, 1987 Simmons drove to Walmart in a car that had once belonged to his son, so that he could purchase a second gun. After he purchased the second gun he proceeded in killing his old coworkers, bosses, and acquaintances, or whom he referred to as “everyone who wanted to hurt me”, he then turned himself over to the Russellville police after they arrived.

Kuo stated that Simmons was sane and capable of standing trial.
So terrible that the police attacked the Lovings home in the middle of the night on an unknown tip. Because of Virginia 's 400-year-old antimiscegenation law, the couple was accused of a lawful offense and was sentenced to one to five years in jail. In spite of the fact that Mildred and Richard reached a plea bargain, they were requested to leave Virginia and could not come back to Virginia together for twenty-five years.

He lost his beloved one. He uses what he adores to kill another one that he loves. This feeling, this emotion, is just too strong to bare that he lost his hope to live, lost his direction to live on. The fact that he died from cancer is a metaphor that signifies he is tired of this life and ready to take off. Thus, this conveys the message that Mr. Searcy wants to tell in this essay: love and hope are meaningful and essential goals that people live

The Black Plague I was walking down the road and, then I saw a man fall on the ground for no reason and thought it was the plague so I ran home got my stuff and ran out of town. I ended up at another town and there was a lot of people so “I asked a man for a newspaper.”
The goons tossed the camp yesterday I had a few letters written on the back of small pieces of cardboard. I had put them into a leg of a stool that I had hollowed out but, they took all of the furniture and burnt it in front of us while we had to stay in formation for two hours. A guy in the front rank passed out and they revived him and then beat him until he passed out again. We then carried his broken body to the hospital.

For my book report I read the book The Pigman by Paul Zindel. The book is about two sophomores named John and Lorraine who befriend a man named Angelo Pignati over the phone while they were prank calling random strangers with two friends from school. Each chapter of the book is written in the perspective of either John or Lorraine and they are telling the story on a school typewriter in their library. John started out in the first chapter and Lorraine took the second then John took the third and it went back and forth from there. The reason Mr.Pignati is dialed was very specific rather than random.
