Some 21 rounds were fired, one of them hitting a deputy in the head and critically injuring him. “When a police officer is shot, our security is threatened,” said Sal Hernandez, assistant director in charge of our Los Angeles office, “and it illustrates a brazen attitude that
I did a little extra research over the movie just to get some of the other facts maybe they couldn’t put in the movie because of length. Clarence Brandley is an African-American who, in 1981, while a janitor at a high school in Conroe, Texas, was wrongly convicted of the rape and murder of Cheryl Dee Ferguson, a 16 year-old student. Brandley was held for nine years on death row. After lengthy legal proceedings that ended in the Supreme Court of the United States, Clarence Brandley was freed in 1990. Suspicion immediately fell on two of the custodians, Brandley and Henry (Icky) Peace, who had found the body.
Amy Phillips English 111 April 18, 2011 Dean “The Candy Man” Corll Have you heard the story of the candy man? Unlike the movie, that came out in the 90’s; it was actually a true story that occurred in 1970’s. It took place in Houston, Texas in which Dean Corll and two of his accomplices, two younger boys, David Brooks and Elmer Henley, had committed the worst crime ever in history earning the title, “The Houston Mass Murders.” It was such a horrific tragedy that I feel the story had not been given enough attention to the public, as the bodies of several young boys are still being found today. What provoked these men to do these crimes? What were the early signs that could’ve been caught early enough to prevent these murders?
They also testified that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev sped in an SUV toward the struggle, ultimately running over his older brother. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to the 30 counts against him, including charges of using a "weapon of mass destruction resulting in death," but his defense attorney has said that he participated in the bombing.

PA253 Legal Ethics | Unit 3 Assignment | | Monet Braud June 30, 2015 | In 2008, a man named Alton Logan was released from prison after serving 26 years in prison for the 1982 slaying of a security guard at a Chicago McDonald’s. That fact alone is shocking enough, but add to that, Alton Logan was innocent, and the statement becomes unbelievable. But even more unbelievable is that two lawyers, Dale Coventry and Jamie Kunz, knew who the real killer was and remained silent. In 1982, they watched while Logan was tried, convicted, and sentenced to life in prison. Dale Coventry and Jamie Kunz were the lawyers of the actual killer, Andrew Wilson.
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. Today April 23, 2012 Zimmerman was released on 15,000 dollars bond witch was ten percent of the 150,000 dollar bond set by the judge earlier this week. Msnbc.com has video coverage of Zimmerman walking out of jail escorted by police clutching a brown paper bag. The links on this site are very useful if you want to follow the story from the beginning.
