The police went to his house and found $14,000 in ransom money as well as many other things and they arrested him on the spot, this trial was the biggest in America. The investigators were able to do a handwriting analysis and determine the handwriting from Hauptmann and the ransom letters were a match. A lot of people were starting to question whether justice could be served or if it was just a lost cause because of such a death. The trial started and had at least 700 or more reporters and other people trying to sneak a peek inside the room and find out the results of the trial.
On October 19, 1982, John Z. DeLorean was arrested at an airport hotel with several kilograms of cocaine. DeLorean was arrested the same day the British Government said it would permanently close the Northern Ireland plant, which built DeLorean’s cars. The arrest ended a five-month, undercover probe, which tracked the auto executive across the nation. His company was in severe financial problems, and he feared the possibility of his company’s being closed down by the government, which had extended loans to him. FBI agent Richard Bretzing said DeLorean came to Los Angeles to buy 220 pounds of cocaine for distribution in Southern California at a street price of $24
LOCAL RESIDENT WINS MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR SETTLEMENT In November 2008, a local resident, Mrs. Louise Mallard, was awarded $11.5 million in damages in the retrial of a libel case she brought against a local television station after a news report identified her husband as the victim of a mob beating at a local Reading Railroad Terminal. In May 2002, WCCS-TV, a Selma television station owned at the time by MultiMedia Communications, falsely reported that railroad employee Brently Mallard, husband of Louise Mallard, was the victim of an abduction and beating by organized crime figures. The actual victim was later identified in a broadcast by a rival television station. The misidentification arose when
The men under the command of Candelario Lopez burned and looted the city and the forces under Pablo Lopez, Beltran and Castro attacked the American forces. The men under Cervantes penetrated unopposed into the heart of the city killing anyone who stood on their way. After kicking the door open to the commercial Hotel they searched it desperately looking for Ravel who was out of the town at the time. L. Burkhead the postal administrator left the hotel with his wife and kids through a back door just before the hotel collapsed in flames. Arthur Ravel who was 16 years old at the time, witnesses this carnage only because the two men assigned to accompany him to his dad’s store were shot by the town folk.
McCarthy came on the scene. Hearings and investigations occurred in the late 40s. But Schrecker provides a robust detail chronological account the early stages of political repression of the left. Although the author can trace back all the way to the Mayflower compact and otherness of enslaved Africans, Anti-Communism in its modern form begins with the Paris commune of 1870-71, and the great railroad strikes of 1877. But it is the Haymarket tragedy of 1886 where anarchists and a bomb exploded killing police officers that we find the inter connection of local police agencies, robber baron business leaders, cash payoffs to law enforcement officers and the privileging American values of family flag and church as the beginning stages of a network towards the repression of the political left.
Ray Nagin-New Orleans mayor Former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin has been convicted of bribery, money laundering, and other corruption charges (Associated Press 2014). He allegedly took thousands of dollars, went on free vacations and trips, and was given truckloads of granite for his family business (Associated Press 2014). Ray was mayor after the hectic Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana in 2005 and destroyed most of New Orleans (Associated Press 2014). He had fought so hard for the federal government to help New Orleans in their time of need, yet he was making unethical choices governing the city. I find this very interesting and disturbing since, who is to know if his fight was for the people of New Orleans or for himself and his family.
There is loads of evidence that can prove the theory of the mafia murdering JFK. First of all JFK’s father Joseph Kennedy used the mafia to get the support in key states and that could explain why he won by less than 0.5%. Evidence number 2 is that he had an affair with a godfather’s girlfriend. When his death was announced and everyone was in shock a thousand miles away at a restaurant in Tampa Florida a celebration was under way where mobster Santo Trafficante raises his glass and toasts the assassination of JFK. For mafia don Carlos Marcello in New Orleans and Johnny Recelly in Chicago it is also welcome news.
September 11th 2001, two hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City and a third crashed into the Pentagon in Washington D.C. Thousands of people were killed in these crashes and since then we have continued to our fight against terror, every year remembering those men, women, and children who lost their lives in those fatal crashes that fateful September day. In their respective speeches, President Bush and Prime Minister Blair both addressed the tragedy. In his speech to Congress, President Bush uses appeal to pathos, making it feel like he is truly with us. “Great harm has been done to us.” This simple statement used by Bush shows all of the United States that not only is the President here to lead us, but he is also human. He continues to speak in a mournful tone throughout the speech.
