One difference is that Johnny dies a hero, while Dally dies a hoodlum. Dally always tries to break the law, he could never do things the legal way. Ponyboy narrates “Dally didn’t die a hero. He died violent and young and desperate, just like we all knew he would die someday” (154). Before Dally died, he robbed a grocery store, the cops are chasing him when he pulled out an unloaded gun.
People who are on Brown’s side claim that a white police officer abused his power, and a sign of race discrimination among police officers.

At that time, Tabor’s phone is ringing and it is his friend constable K who tells Tabor to escape because he is being accused of the murderer.

Tabor remembers that last week he delivered a package to Pa’s carport, but he doesn’t see him.
“Bud” Frazer. Frazer who had been sheriff for less than a year, was in search for a deputy in the frowner town and asked a few questions of Miller. Askign too many questions was typically considered rude in this era, thus Miller took offense from this, resulting in a fatal mistake for Frazer. Nevertheless, Miller had been hired for the job and quickly began pursuing thieves, although he never actually captured any. The raise of thefts began when Miller became deputy, and Frazer’s brother-in-law suggested Miller should be looked at as a suspect and fired.
Closing Statements Intro Your Honor today the prosecution did in fact prove that the defendant Robin Banks is guilty of arson and murder. The defense witnesses that spoke today wasted our time starting with Collins Mr. Collins who attempts to give some background on Robin Banks character when they have on been friends for a few days or so they say in their statements. But on the night of the fire Banks told Chief Gray that she was not even an acquaintance of Collins. Collins and Banks whereabouts are unknown on the night of the fire and when they were picked up by the honorable Chief Gray, Collins refused to be arrested Chief Gray even reported that both Collins and Banks had the foul stench of accelerant when they were all together in the
The theoretical concepts that are being used is culture aspect. From my point of view, is that Hernando’s culture is what made him commit the crime. In the article on page 25, it stated, “When his sister was raped, the police would not help her; they would not even give her a ride home. Also, when his brother was murdered, no one moved to identify the killer, much less to arrest him.” In other words, the police did not put much attention to the crimes that had happened to his own family. Both situations, the police had the opportunity to be involved and help but instead, they
In “The Pedestrian”, the government controlled police car stopped a man called Leonard Mead who was just out for a nightly walk, one that he’d been doing every night for years. The car even threatened to shoot if he didn’t stop, then talked with Mr. Mead and eventually arrested him. When the police car pulled up to stop Mr. Mead, it called “‘Your hands up or we’ll shoot!’” (Bradbury, 1). When the police car was trying to get Mr.Mead into the back of the car after he’d been arrested, it said “‘Get in’” (Bradbury, 2). It is highly unlikely that a man out for an evening stroll, in a city of 3 million people, is the police cars best interest.
In 2012, Trayvon Martin was walking home, unarmed, with his hood up and his hands in his pockets. Local neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, saw him as a “threat” and took it upon himself to use lethal force against him. Campaign Zero reported that in 2014 “police killed at least 253 unarmed people and 91 people who were stopped for mere traffic violations”. The police brutality continues to escalate creating despair within the community. Martin’s case, along with Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson and the massacre at the Emanuel A.M.E. church in Charleston, became catalysts for the Black Lives matter Movement.
Obstruction of justice and perjury were the two crimes that Clinton committed, which caused him to be impeached. Clinton did not consider the legal ramifications of lying about the affair. He was more concerned about his own motives, such as hiding the affair from his wife and daughter. This is an example of imperial presidency, because instead of following the law and constitution, Clinton broke laws in order to obtain his own goals. He is not taking care that the laws be faithfully executed, instead he is pursuing his own
Soon after being released, another highway patrol officer pulled him over for changing lanes without signaling. The cop asked to search his car, but he refused. Gerald told the cop to call his commanding officer, but they refused his request. They then placed him and his son in a squad car. They then had dogs search his car, but when he observed the dogs, they never gave a signal that there were narcotics, but the officers claimed that they did.
