Although under the Fourteenth Amendment of U.S Constitutions, a state may not deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws and the equal protection means the government must treat similarly situated individuals in a similar manner, discriminations and stereotypes of races’ problems has never been solved perfectly. In the poem “South Central Los Angeles Death Trip, 1982”, Wanda Coleman uses a narrator identity to tell the reader nine cases about innocent people sacrificed their lives under the overuse of firearms from the police. Within the poem, Coleman uses her unique syntax, ironic commentaries, and different descriptions on victims to expresses her grievance against the police’s effronteries, her sympathy for the innocent victims , and at the same time to reveal the servileness and insignificance of black people’s lives at the time. Coleman uses her unique syntax to so reveal her anger. Throughout the whole poem, Coleman does not directly express her own opinions.
Dr. Hoerr was called by Halls’ husband as an expert witness in trial. He was called as an expert witness to establish a national standard of care applicable to all surgeons including the duty to follow the patient through the first several hours after an operation. Dr. Hoerr was not familiar with the local standard of care and was disqualified by the trial court. Hilbun was granted a direct verdict and Hall’s husband appealed.

Christopher Gabriel Woodard 119 Breading Ave Pittsburgh, PA 15202 412-766-4564 November 14, 2012 The Honorable Judge Tara Smith On September 24th 2012 I was stopped on Joesphs Lane for exceeding the speed limit. I am not here to dispute the fact that I may have been exceeding the speed limit, But I am asking for your consideration and the consideration of the court because of extenuating circumstances prior to this incident. Just days before being stopped, my best friend, Nigel Francis Paga died suddenly. Nigel and I were more than best friends, He and I were brothers. We had both been accepted to Bowling Green State University and were planning on being roommates.
In the following months evidence would be collected that could only lead to one person committing the murders, O.J. Simpson. Nearly eight months later, O.J Simpson was on trial for the killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. O.J pleaded “Absolutely one hundred percent not guilty” (Linder 4). The prosecution’s opening statement was a phone call Nicole had made to 911, while they were still married, fearing that Simpson was going to harm her.
His Publicist said, “He passed away this morning and was battling severs depression of late.” (Bio.) The family asked for their privacy so they could grieve over the loss of Williams. The Marin County Sheriff’s office on August 12, 2014 said, “The preliminary results of the forensic examination revealed supporting physical signs that Mr. Williams life ended from asphyxia due to hanging.” (Bio.) There was also a pocket knife found at the crime scene, and Williams used it to cut his left wrist. Although Williams has passed on, he touches millions of lives by his movies and comedy shows.
Three children died instantly and over a dozen were critically injured. Willie’s prophecy on time being the steward of the truth proves to be beneficial for him. “Oh, God, I am punished for accepting iniquity and voting against an honest man!” cries one of the parents who lost his child (65). In Mr. Sandeen’s (the father who lost his child) statement, Warren exhibits another phenomenon in the South that might have sustained just as much if not more momentum than politics – this phenomenon is religion. Surreptitiously but not blatantly, Warren provides his audience with the experience of watching a typical Southern citizen in reaction to a tragic event.
Some twenty years earlier, he’d been molested by his then-priest; callow, impressionable, in need of love, Comes found himself in a situation he describes as “too screwed up to question,” with the result that he was “so confounded that (he did) nothing.”On the other hand, there’s Dennis Gray, the priest in question; a thoroughly repellent individual, Gray is seen in a 2003 legal deposition, evading questions on the advice of his lawyer. But Comes is far from silent. Having spent two decades racked with guilt and shame and thinking he was the only victim, Comes is
Amir felt the reason Baba was always distant and seemed cut off, was because he was torn inside after the death of his beloved wife, which Amir had killed at delivery. “It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime...” This evidence shows how the one event at twelve years old has molded his entire life. “I became what I am today at the age of twelve.” At twelve years old Amir witnessed the rape of his childhood friend and brother Hassan. This example shows that Amir felt his entire life was shaped by the memory of the rape that happened at twelve years old. Amir lived the rest of his life trying to deal with the guilt and hide from the memory of that horrific
YOU TELL STORY The description of Garret Hongo’s Kubato dream relates to the way Kubato remembered the Japanese Americans that died after the attack on Pearl Harbor. “One of his laterns was on it and written in small, neat rows like a sutra scroll, it had been decorated with the silvery names of all our dead.” (Hongo, last paragraph) kubato recited his story to Hongo to emphasize the importance of telling the world about the discrimination that his people experienced. “You tell story.” (Hongo, 1) Even though he was born an American citizen, Kubato was still suspected of espionage and held for several days without being charged. The day after the attack on Pearl Harbor, many Japanese American people, including Kuato, were taken in for
Simpson in Los Angeles for the alleged murder of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman. Regardless of Simpson's guilt or innocence, the trial clearly showed that class trumps race when it comes to the criminal justice system. At each step of the proceedings Simpson was able to obtain different treatment and results than he would have had he been penniless. This ranged from the obvious (the "dream team" of lawyers who represented him) to the not so obvious (the prosecution's decision not to seek the death
