The case Furman v Georgia made it all the to the supreme court because it would affect the way the whole country delivered punishment. Although it surprised many people that it made it that far because most people were for capital punishment. Michael Meltsner said,”Georgia was a shock. Before LDF's anti-capital punishment campaign, there had been no successful court challenge of the death penalty — even when it had been handed down in a blatantly racist or totally arbitrary manner” (www.michealmeltsner.com/interview.html). .
“The search is over, Montag is dead; a crime against society has been avenged.” (Bradbury 142). In the end, the government couldn’t find Montag, but because everyone was watching the search for him on their TV’s, the government killed an innocent man pretending it was Montag. The society was glad Montag was dead, even though it wasn 't really him.

As years passed the Judges did believe that satan had cursed their town, but eventually had some remorse and decided that some of the trials were held unfairly and errors had occurred through out them(Salem witch trials). In 1697 one of the judges had written a letter of apology and confessed his guilt about the mis judgment of the trials. On the same date another 12 jurors who was sitting on the trials had signed a letter of regret asking for forgiveness from their error of
What happened to Frank Romero 's "Going to the Olympics, 1984" upon the decades after the mural was finished was very tragic but I believe it was inevitable for others to tag over the mural. An image from 2009 shows the mural in a rough shape, the bottom half of the mural got completely ruined by people tagging over the mural and spraying graffiti over it as well. Romero 's response to this fiasco was interesting, he sued Caltrans "the state agency that owns L.A. 's 70 freeway murals," because of the people who painted over his mural. What the people of Los Angles thought of this is interesting as well, as Judith Baca "a mural artist and activist" stated "artists are starting to stand up and say, `Enough is enough. '
Luis Valdez was able to create a more dramatic and tear jerking production by adding and changing the relationships Ritchie Valens had throughout his teenage years. Valdez made Ritchie and Donna’s relationship more serious than it was in real life in order to make the audience feel intense grief and sadness while watching the scene when Donna finds out about Ritchie’s death. The love triangle shown in the movie was a device used to make the audience develop an affinity towards Ritchie and a detestation towards Bob. Valdez kept the biggest events the same because changing them would almost completely discredit anything that happened in the film. It would dishonour all the people that were involved in Ritchie’s life.
This process continues throughout the course of the movie, and each juror’s biases is slowly revealed. Earlier through the movie, it is already justifiable to label juror 10 as a bigoted racist as he reveals strong racist tendencies against the defendant, stating his only reason for voting guilty is the boy’s ethnicity and background. . Another interesting aspect of this 1957 film is the “reverse prejudice” portrayed by juror
His rebellion shows that his character is smart, strong and prefect, but also eaten up by power, he didn’t think before he went to the studio and that led him to getting shot. His queen to was shot because of this, but his rebellion was for everyone’s freedom, their real freedom. In all honesty there should be another story where a different person comes that does this but thinks before he does.
“Several times he tried by bribery to stow away…” (6-7). In this quote, Daedalus is desperate to leave and is bold enough to attempt bribery to leave. Even though he is unsuccessful, without his boldness, he would likely be stuck on Crete for even longer if he didn’t try. “... King Minos kept strict watch over them…”
It was reported that Martin Lawrence was violent and was taking pills or on some kind of drugs. For some reason, Martin had a violent attack and then later, collapsed and had to be hospitalized. Martin would be arrested a few times. I mean, we all thought he was losing his mind. "You so crazy" had become more than a catchphrase for this comedian.
The ”Birthday Bombing” as it was known, had scared both of them. Bass demanded that something be done about the Rebel faction in the city, taking the first steps by having the bomber and his family executed. An example had to be set. He knew that Miles hadn’t agreed with his actions, but the subject had been dropped and not brought up again.
Soon after, one of the senator’s investigators attempted to blackmail Murrow for having sympathizer affiliations. The plan backfired, but the line had been drawn in the sand between both parties and the conflict was further set into motion. Murrow and Friendly had been cautious towards airing an episode specifically against McCarthy, but they knew it was time to make the move. While Murrow and his team prepared for the match against McCarthy, See It Now’s episodes centered on topics centered around the flawed practice of McCarthyism, including wiretaps, fifth amendment rights, and congressional investigations (Edwards 113). In days leading up to the episode’s airing, staff members and editors worried that their names would fall victim to the McCarthyism witch-hunt.
