Many of these characters go through life changing events that change them forever. Even the neighbors suddenly turn on each other and accuse people they’ve known for years of practicing witchcraft and devil-worship. The town of Salem falls into mass hysteria, “an uncontrollable outburst of emotion or fear.” Arthur Miller’s play, “The Crucible” is about the Salem witch trials in 1860. These were classic examples of mass hysteria, resulting in the hanging of a great many respectable men and woman of charges of “trafficking” with the devil. They were convicted by people at least as themselves, largely on the evidence of four young girls who had been caught dancing in the moonlight and laid their dissolute behavior to the influence of Satan.

First claiming to be sick and pregnant, Celia eventually full on rebelled and killed her aging master, Robert Newsom. Through numerous interrogations and court hearings, Celia was eventually found guilty of homicide despite her continual sexual demands from Newsom.

This situation eventually led to the radical change in law enforcement and criminal justice, introducing racial profiling. Racial profiling is an act of using race, colour, and ethnicity as suspicion for criminal investigation. The 9/11 attack has not only targeted Muslims, but also expanded to many other racial types including African-American, Native Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, and Asian Americans including South Asians (Human Impacts of Racial Profiling). It has been a rising concern, causing many negative effects among the different racial types in North American society due to the criminal injustice based on invalid evidence, violation of rights and freedoms, and the changes in behaviour from discrimination. Firstly, the systemic use of racial profiling is solely based on stereotypes and biased beliefs instead of reasonable evidence when it comes to contemplating an individual’s threat towards society.
