Neighbors reported that at some time before commiting the crimes that placed him on the Most Wanted list, Diggs began drinking and he was heard to be arguing with his wife. A newspaper of account of time tells the story like this: At 7 o'clock on the morning of May 26, 1949, James Eddie Diggs shot and killed his wife, Ruth, and their two sons James Jr., 6, and Alfonso, 4, at their home in Norfolk, Va. There were no signs of a struggle and police have been unable to establish a clear motive. However, shortly before the triple killing Diggs began to drink to excess and to seek the company of women. The whereabouts of Diggs were unknown for nearly a week after the slayings, but on May 31, 1949 he was identified as the man who, when the auto in which he was riding was halted at Hamlet, N. C., drew a revolver and critically wounded officer Rex Howell.
In the book, Tom Klebold said that his son, Dylan, suffered from being an outcast at his school, and that might have led to his participation in the massacre. The book also describes an arrest of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold that took place the year before they went on a rampage. In that incident, previously reported in the media, the two teenagers were caught stealing equipment from a van, but authorities released the boys to their parents' custody, instead of keeping them in jail, and put them in a diversion program. Tom Klebold said that on the day after the arrest, he went for a walk with his son and found the boy to be angry and feeling his actions was somehow justified. "The morality of the whole thing escaped him," Tom Klebold said in the book.

James Minor Mr. Jones English 1420 22, June, 2014 Making the decision to put a person to death for a murder he/she committed can be very serious. That is why when I read the article about a 16 year old boy who had killed his mother, had a party and sold items from the house, I was in total disbelief. This behavior is totally unacceptable. The boy, whose name is Kitt, and his 3 year old brother were both in the home when the murder had taken place. According to relatives who lived nearby, Kitt had been upset because his mother had sent him off to boot camp weeks prior.
Samantha Martin The news article I chose to compare and contrast is the release of George Zimmerman. If you have been keeping up with the news you know that Zimmerman is the neighborhood watch captain who shot and killed seventeen year-old Trayvon Martin on February 26th as he walked home from the store after purchasing a soda and a bag of Skittles.
