With the aid of his vigilante force, the Guardians of the Oglala Nation (GOON’s) he attacked the “traditionalists”. Over sixty murders have occurred in this reservation between the year 1973 and 1975 and still remain unsolved. To protect the Reservation, traditionalist requested the AIM to allocate them members to protect them from further attacks by the GOON’s. Among them was Leonard Peltier, who at the time was being accused of the attempted murder of a police officer in Wisconsin. On June 26, 1975 FBI agents, Ronald A. Williams and Jack R. Coler were allegedly shot dead by Leonard
Today there are many people that believe Canada should bring back the death penalty for some of the more serious crimes committed such as rapes, murders, and terrorism. It is my belief that capital punishment should be reinstated in Canada so that justice is brought to those people who commit horrific crimes, therefore giving them no chance to be released into society. The history of capital punishment made its first appearance in Canada putting Peter Cartcel to death in 1749 after stabbing three men causing the death of Abraham Goodsides and injuring two others. This is presumably the earliest recorded use of capital punishment as it is hard to be exact due to the lack in systematically keeping records until 1867. In the early years a person could receive the death penalty by committing such crimes as treason, theft, burglary, rape pedophilia, homosexuality, and bestiality.
This resistance escalated into military confrontation. Louis Riel was arrested and executed on a charge of high treason. Louis Riel’s execution had an effect on relations between the French and the English people of Canada. Louis Riel can be seen as the Father of Confederation or a traitor. While a fugitive, he was elected three times to the Canadian House of Commons, although he never assumed his seat.
Public outrage over massacre marked Capone from the federal government to continue some of his criminal activities, but it was the end of any significant opposition to Capone. Capone continued to conduct business from prison. He was allowed to make long-distance calls, had a private cell, and was allowed to meet and when returned to Chicago finding himself branded “Public Enemy Number One”. In 1931, Capone was convicted of income tax evasion leading to his imprisonment for 11 years. The massacre ultimately affected both Moran and Capone and left the war they had with each other at a stalemate.
The “Trial of Thomas Builds-the-Fire”, begins with Thomas in the tribal holding cell and the BIA officials talking about how dangerous he is because he is a storyteller who has an extreme need to tell the truth. Thomas didn’t speak for twenty years after he promised to remain silent when he was held for holding the reservation postmaster, Eve Ford hostage. He then begins to make noises and the tribal chairman’s wife leaves her husband after she heard Thomas speak and he was arrested the next day. When the trial begins he tells the story of how he was a pony in war and fought the whites after they killed over 800 horses. Thomas was one of the only ones to survive and decides to go fight the whites after he sees his fellow brother and sisters wanting to admit defeat.
This case proceeded in London and was said to be a strong influence in the abolishment of capital punishment in the United Kingdom. Evans was executed in 1950 for the murder of his wife and 13-month-old daughter. Evans maintained his innocence through the whole trial and told investigators that his neighbor, John Christie murdered his family. There was not much evidence against Evans and the case was said to be really weak but he was still executed on March 9, 1950. The police coerced Timothy Evans into a false confession by threatening him.
In 1975 Ted was arrested in Utah but was released due to the little evidence, Two years later was convicted of kidnapping and escaped. Ted Bundy killed three people in Florida and was arrested but his parents bailed him out and he sold his car but police impounded it away from new owner. It was then when forensic evidence finally solved this case by finding three different hairs matching the three victims killed in Ted’s car and matched his teeth marks the a bite mark on one of the victims. He was then was sentenced to three death penalties in 1978 when Ted was recaptured and on January 24, 1989 at Railford prison in Starke, Florida Ted Bundy was executed in the electric chair. My opinion on this case was interesting yet disgusting but Ted Bundy was smart about how he attracted his victims.
He took the snide but it was out of date so it didn’t work he was arrested. The archduke unhurt insisted on going to the hospital to see the men that were hurt. On the way the driver took a wrong turn and ended going down a street were another terrorist was, the terrorist fired two shot one hitting the pregnant Sophie killing her almost instantly the other hitting the archduke in the neck killing him. The terrorist took the snide but of course it didn’t work he was about to shoot himself when he was arrested. I choose this reason because it led Austria to blame Serbia for the assassination.
