Everyone was shocked at the murder of such a great man, and the nation was weary to believe the government after seeing and hearing the controversial footage. The original death statement released from the U.S. government explained that Kennedy had been stuck at the back his head with a bullet. No witnesses saw a lurch forward from the fatal shot though.

JFK Assassination Adolf Hitler once said, “The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it.” (Posner 135) We can see many examples of this throughout the history of the world.

He quickly found his niche and employment by robbing banks, and almost overnight he became a “Robin Hood” national hero. Even thought people had been killed during these holdups and robberies. Many people across the nation were so fed up with the banks at this time and the loss of their own money a few lives taken was alright by them.

Jack the Ripper The definition of a serial killer is usually an individual who has killed three or more people over a time period of more than a month. Between the murders there have been what is called a down time, "a cooling of period". Often there is a sexual element involved in the killings and the offenders usually act alone and the victims often have something in common such as race, age or similar appearance.

The fact that his identity is unknown makes it even more interesting.

The other eleven attempted murders are often long forgotten by everyday persons, however the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan in March of 1981 has had so many numerous effects on today’s society that it should not be erased from the history boards. What could have started such a ground breaking and on going event? Oddly enough, it began with a film; Taxi Driver starring Robert De Niro and a young Jodie Foster, is about a New York taxi driver who saves the life of a child prostitute by killing a senator.
Aaron McKinney Mr. Zimmerer Period 3 12/13/13 Ethics Essay Racial injustice in the United States court system is still ramped to this day. In a most recent case, a 16 year old boy and five of his friends all decided to get drunk, take valium pills, drive at criminal speed on normal city streets, and resulted in killing four people: a priest, family man, mother, and daughter, and leaving one of the passengers in the car with extensive brain damage. The judge of the case, Jean Boyd, sentenced the driver to rehab, ten years probation, and a fine.
