But there is also a darker side to it, even darker than the crime itself. The Cooper theft led to a new world where hijacking is possible. In just a few short years, taking control of airplanes filled with hostages became too regular an occurrence. I don’t think we can pin that trend entirely on Cooper, but his crime did take a lot of trust out of the people, they once had toward air travel. FBI files states on November 24, 1971 shortly after take off from Seattle, Washington, a man in seat 18c of Northwest Orient Airlines handed the flight attendant a note that started one of the most famous causes in FBI history.
Introduction Police corruption has been going on for many years. There are a number of crimes that the police have committed. Police brutality is not the only crime that they commit. There are some police officers, who have received gratuities from people, abused the legal system by planting evidence, perjuring themselves, hiding evidence, and using drugs while on and off duty. The Rampart division of the Los Angeles police department dabbled in a lot of those corruptive behaviors.
WW1 was the first major war where airplanes were used as an important part of the army. When WW1 began, airplanes played a small role in the battles.

Industry Analysis Two large airlines take the initiative to expand their horizons and decide to affiliate and join together. The alliance between US airways and British Airlines was widely publicized and criticized because it was the largest such venture ever attempted in an industry. British Airways, in 1939, British Overseas Airways Corporation was formed. The company became heavily loaded with debt through the 1950s and 1960s as it acquired new aircraft, experienced severe swings in capacity as passenger traffic ebbed and flowed, and began to compete internationally with the large U.S. airliners. For many years the British government continually subsidized the losses.
Marine Corps Aviation History Name Institution Abstract The USMC had its humble beginnings in May 1912 when Lt Cunningham reported to duty in the newly created aviation camp in Annapolis. Since then, the force has undergone notable changes. Its initial operations were in the WW 1, which were marred by inadequate personnel and equipment. However, in the inter-war years, it managed to improve its strength in minor operations launched in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and China. In the WW11, upon assault from the Japanese, the naval air force demonstrated its strength through the defeat and subsequent occupation of Okinawa.
Some of the immigranst that came west were thousands of people such as farmers, ranchers, store keepers that were law abiding citizens but also it brought gamblers, horse thieves and other bad characters. As a result, the creation of the first police department was due to the murder of Jack Whalin in 1853 who was the second City Marshal. This incident forced the city’s first chief Dr. A.W. Hope to organize “Los Angeles Rangers” who were volunteers to help the Sheriff and Marshall. The Rangers were identified by a white ribbon that said both in English and spanish “City Police Authorized by the Council of Los Angeles” (unknown, 2011).
The most important detail that affected this case is that in December 7th of 1941, Japanese fighter pilots intentionally attacked an American naval base right off of Honolulu, Hawaii. This meant bad news for the United States. According to America’s Best History, On February 19, 1942, The Executive order 9066 is signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, confining 110,000 Japanese Americans, including 75,000 citizens, on the West Coast into relocation camps during World War II. The remains of the first of these detention camps resides in California's Manzanar National Historic Site. These camps would last for three years.
Scott Hain Case Study Scott Hain was a 17 years old at the time he and his friend carjacked, robbed, stuffed the victims in the trunk and set fire to the vehicle subsequently killing both Michael Houghton and Laura Sanders in what started out as a carjacking on October 6, 1987. The issues of the case were the death penalty and if it was just for a juvenile to receive that sentence. The case was contrary to the “normal” standards of justice because society tends to view minors as unable to commit such crimes that would end up in an execution. Hain had a history of theft, trespassing, theft, etc during his juvenile years. The case had brought much attention to the issue of executing juvenile offenders and caused the Supreme Court to address raising the age for such punishment to 18.
