In this next quote, Bob is testifying about how Tom raped his daughter and Atticus is defending Tom throughout the court case. This begins to show how the destruction of innocence started to effect Tom in the court case. Bob lives on the outside of town where the African Americans live. He is considered an outcast by the people of Maycomb. Bob testified accusing Tom of rape, but there was a lot of evidence in the sheriff's testimony to prove that Bob was lying in his testimony, like how the sheriff said that when he heard about Bob's daughter.
Turner was charged with the assault of “Emily Doe” while she was unconscious. The high-profile case upset many human rights activists, and the victim, her family. The Stanford University case has revealed the reason why many rape cases, especially on the campus remain unreported. Brock Turner deserved a longer sentence after being found guilty to show the world that justice can be served for sexual assault victims. The first article I read was a piece by Marina Koren called "Telling the Story of the Stanford Rape Case."
Jason Dorrant was the murderers so they ask for a well know detective named Trent do the job. What happens to some of the characters is very unfair because life is unfair. Alicia Barlett started asking questions because she felt like she was getting interrogated for something she didn't know what happened. Jason however is very upset about the incident but Emma doesn't feel bad. The truth is that all the people in the world it would have to happen
In response she said that she had struggled with abandonment and trust issues and as well as my attitude towards relationship with men. The hook in the documentary was about the authentic interview of Cyntoia’s story, but the real issue was about prostitution, murder, crime and family problems. This incident happened at August, 6, 2004 at Johnny Allen’s house. Cyntoia is a prostitute who sleeps with people to make money. Cyntoia
While getting interviewed Jay says that he helped Adnan get to track practice and dig a hole for Hae’s body (7-8). This proves that Jay assisted Adnan in murdering Hae and that they were both involved in the crime. In episode two of Serial the state claims that Adnan is the one that did it. Sarah states on behalf of the state “And the motive the State supplied, the basis for the whole thing, was that after Hae broke up with Adnan, he couldn’t accept it. He was so wounded by her, and so furious, that he decided to kill her” (21).
She had been strangled till unconscious, sexually assaulted, and had her throat slit. At the location of her body, there were two strands of hair that were found on Schultz’s body and were the main leads of the case. Investigators arrested a man by the name of Cecil Sutherland and linked his hair to the ones found on her body. He was put in prison but has now been open to retrial due to lack of
Hedda Nussbaum: Villain or Victim The attribution theory presumes that people attempt to try and explain why people do what they do. It seeks to understand the relationship between a person’s traits, attitudes and behaviors (Myers, p.55). In the murder of Lisa Steinberg, people struggled to understand the tragic event which led to various explanations in regards to the reasoning’s and responsibility of Hedda Nussbaum. Nussbaum, the legal custodian of the young girl, was present when she died due to physical abuse. The televised trial captured a large audience that coaxed viewers to decide if Nussbaum was a villain or victim.
The detectives knew that the eye-witness account wasn't going to be enough to convict Butler. Therefore, they drew up a false confession that was allegedly (in a way implied... after all it's a “confession”) verbatim that Butler spewed/confessed to the detectives. Maybe it is not fair to use the word “they” as if everyone in the investigation was involved in the framing of Butler. I want to make it clear that I do not think everyone was out to frame Butler. However, because the detectives spent more time harassing the boy into “confessing” instead of investigating the crime.
The documentary I choose is called Crime after Crime, and I felt it demonstrated the sociological themes we have discussed and how the system can be for us or against us. It was a documentary about a lady name Deborah Peagler who was convicted to 25 years to life. She had married a man by the name of Oliver Wilson, who use to beat on her and abuse her. She felt as though it was no way out of the relationship and she even go the police involved. She got a couple of guys around the neighborhood to try to beat him up a little bit but he ended up dying.
One of the women was raped and the other two were assaulted, but escaped before they were raped. Based on the descriptions and the similarities of the attacks, Los Angeles police concluded that the same person committed all three attacks—the victims all were attacked at about 6 a.m. by a man with a knife as they walked to a bus stop. The police soon focused on 29-year-old Luis Vargas because he had a single teardrop tattoo under his left eye. All three victims identified Vargas in photo lineups, although with less than 100 percent certainty. Vargas was arrested on 07/21/1998.
