Kevorkian allegedly only assisted in the patients’ deaths by attaching a device to them, in which the patients would press a button to finally end their life painlessly and on their own terms.

Rodney King had reached a settlement worth 4 million dollars and later on two of the four officers were sent to prison and the other two were acquitted. In TKAM Tom Robinson was sentenced to prison for alleged rape and was sentenced for death. Tom Robinson’s trial wasn’t really a fair one because the whole jury was twelve white men which were biased toward the victim. Tom Robinson was sent to a local prison house to be detained until he goes to the federal prison but he escaped that night and was shot by one of the officers in charge there while he was running. Tom Robinson’s case was an example of injustice due to the fact that the jurors had not gathered any evidence that proved Tom Robinsons guilt, Atticus had proved the court wrong but that was not enough for a racist and biased group of jurors to allow Tom Robinson to leave freely.

The jury ruled that he should be sent to the electric chair; however, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the death penalty and he was to receive life in prison. Due to the overpopulation in the Texas prison he was sent to, McDuff was quietly released from prison into an unsuspecting citizenry (“Deterrent” 3). Shortly after he was released, Texas prostitutes were coming up missing and were later found dead.
