The video says the parents of the nine boys brought together $60 to pay a real estate lawyer to defend the boys. Atticus is portrayed in To Kill A Mockingbird as the lawyer for Tom Robinson. Both cases can be unfairly tried in courts, they were accused of things with no evidence.

Why would an enraged mob form outside the home of a new neighbor who is a well-educated and a well-mannered medical doctor, his gracious young wife, and their 18 month old baby? It was 1925, Dr. Sweet was black, and the neighborhood was an all-white working class section of Detroit. “When Dr. Ossian Sweet bought a house in an all-white section of Detroit in the summer of 1925, he knew his move might trigger white violence. “Well, we have decided we are not going to run," he told a colleague a few weeks before taking possession of his new home. “We’re not going to look for any trouble, but we 're going to be prepared to protect ourselves if trouble arises."
He wasn’t like a caring husband helping the search he made himself look guilty doing it. I read an article that said “But authorities watching Scott Peterson proved that he visited the marina five times in five different rented vehicles as law enforcement officers searched the bay before the bodies were recovered, surmising that he was “checking to see if searchers were looking in the right place” (Stapley). If he wasn’t guilty he would not have rented different cars for each different visit. Upon the finding of the bodies 4 months later he was supposed to call Laci’s mother and tell them the good news but, he never did and for that the mother started to suspect him for this
After being shot, doctors rushed to the train station and began trying to locate the bullets to remove them. Since doctors did not believe germs existed, they did not disinfect the area around the president or their hands, which they used to feel around inside of his body. This caused a spread of germs which later developed into an infection which he finally succumbed to after about a month in the hospital. Critic of Guiteau’s guilt and author of a book about Garfield’s assassination, Candice Millard, blames the doctors by claiming, “If they had just left him alone he almost certainly would have survived” (CBS 1). This is backed up by the fact that the bullets were found to have not hit any vital organs.
The doctor advised Brian that the tissue being used was disease free but was the tissue of donor 58600 who after death Clostridium sordelli bacteria took over his body. Brian Lykins died soon after the surgery. Brian was not the only person who received tissue from donor 58600; others also got sick or died. Some concerns related are that there is no way to regulate human remains without someone trying to make a profit. It started off as a way to advance science and help society but the greed of money took over.

Barely able to move, Terry came home in horrible pain. The very next day he had his father drive him to the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster. After testing him, they discovered that he had osteosarcoma, a bone cancer in his right leg. He had to endure chemotherapy, and the cancer resulted in the need to amputate his leg.

He filed a law suit and won the case, which should have been the end of his suffering, but instead became a chance to be persuaded not to go through with it. By prolonging his condition, his catheter had the chance to malfunction, causing toxins to build up and cause two strokes, which put him in a coma. This was something he was trying to avoid, but tragically went through it anyway. He died a few months later, around ten years after the law suit (Pence). When it gets to a point of misery and pain, a person should have the choice to decide their own fate, and not to be persuaded.
