To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee tells the story of Tom Robinson. A black man falsely accused of raping a white woman, Mayela Ewell, through the eyes of Atticus’ daughter Scout. Atticus Finch chooses to take his case and defend him.

Atticus used logos to attempt at logically convincing this racist jury that there was no way Mr. Robinson could have committed the rape.
There was going to be a new trial, which would create a challenge for the prosecution in light of the DNA evidence. The appeal was never waited on even though it was granted due to the fact that they would have had to be in jail another six months and if anything went to the appeal, Echols could have been executed. He was the friend of the other two convicted and they did not want to see, or be responsible in any way, for their friend being executed. The courts would never have let the defendants out if they had not known their innocence found with the new DNA evidence. The state did not want to have to admit that they arrested innocents and locked them up for 18 years.

“Bong Hits 4 Jesus” “Bong Hits for Jesus” is in reference to the 2002 freedom of speech case between Deborah Morse and Joseph Frederick. It all began when Morse, a high school principle, suspended 18-year-old Frederick after he displayed a banner that read “bong hits 4 Jesus” across the street from the school during the 2002 Olympic torch relay. As a result, Frederick sued, claiming that his constitutional right to freedom of speech was violated.

Skloot’s purpose of telling Lack’s story does not come without the terrifying discovery of human experimentation. Researchers claim their experiments are for the greater good, but when they walk on a thin line, they will inevitably trample on both sides. According to the School of Law at Northwestern University, people who “violate bodily integrity and autonomy are routinely punished,” and yet scientist will escape unethical situations will only a slap on the wrist (99:1). Uncovering facts of Henrietta’s immortal life, Skloot indirectly poses the argument of medical malpractice. The medical experiments conducted during the nineteen forties and fifties were very controversial.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” was highly controversial although not immediately after it was written. It was published in 1884 and caused little controversy until in 1955, when a televised version of the book used a white man to play Jim, Huck’s slave.

Among numerous other complaints, in 2009 a Washington high school teacher requested for the removal of the novel from their school curriculum, mainly because of the use of the word ‘nigger’. So many protests were received that an alternate book was released, called The Hipster Huckleberry Finn which replaced the word nigger with hipster.
