Thomas Oscar Simpson was born on September 19th 1933 to Alleta Mae and George Henry. In 1954, Thomas lost his Mother. My Mother said, “My father, Aletta’s son, Thomas Simpson (Tom) reports he was first at the scene. Tom was working with his Uncle George Scott on a plow at George’s home which was across the street from the Simpson property. While working Tom and George heard a loud noise. They saw smoke and the tractors wheels in the air. They found her dead beneath the tractor. The steering wheel had crushed her chest and the gas throttle was by the side of her face.”
In the trial of Orenthal James Simpson (O.J. or Juice), Mr.Simpson was proven not guilty, but in the opinion of many OJ was guilty. In my personal opinion Mr. Simpson did not get the sentence he should have. OJ was guilty and everyone knew he was, even himself knew he was guilty. This man went to his trial expecting to get a death row sentence. OJ murdered two human beings in cold blood. This man should be watching his life passed behind four walls but instead the jury turned him loose, until 2007 he was arrested for robbery with a deadly weapon. OJ should have never walked out of the courtroom from the murder case and the robbery would have never took place, he is a criminal.
In 1995, The People of the State of California vs. Orenthal James Simpson, became the “most publicized murder case in history” (Price & Lovitt, 1997). From the very beginning, it seemed that the prosecution’s case against O. J. Simpson for the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman was doomed to fail. There were inconsistencies in how the Los Angeles Police Department collected and preserved of evidence. They were also called into doubt about how they controlled the evidence and who they let have access to the evidence during

Never being able to see your friends and family seems like something unimaginable but for Morris Kent because of his own actions has to live in a nightmare for the rest of his life. Morris Kent was arrested at the age of 16 for 3 counts of robbery, 3 counts of home robberies and worst of all 2 counts of rape. Because of the severity of the crimes the prosecutor moved to try morris as an adult as the punishment would be more severe, but morris’s lawyer didn’t want to have Morris tried as an adult so he planned to argue that Morris had a “mental illness” so the case would stay in juvenile court but in the end the judges ruled against Morris and for the prosecutor. As a result Kent’s punishment was more severe at a sentence of 30 to 90 years in prison but Morris not agreeing with the decision the judges had made Morris appealed stating that the case should have stayed in juvenile court but as the judges didn’t feel the same way about the case they ruled
My name is Zachary Rowe, I am going to talk about the global warming weather effects in Alaska and how it has affected the population of various living animal species. The number of large predators living in the southern Beaufort Sea of Alaska has decreased from 1,500 animals in 2001, to just under 900 in 2010. As the species are decreasing in numbers, they are now listed as vulnerable by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Another problem in 2013, a report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have seen a decline in reindeer inside Alaskan boundaries. These aren't the only species whose populations has
Hampton University history, Samuel Chapman Armstrong. He was a key factor in the construction of Hampton, and everything that it is today. He was born in Maui, Hawaii.

Winslow Homer was born in 1836, and grew up in a rural area of Cambridge Massachusetts and naturally fell in love with the great American outdoors. Homer’s early life was in an era of American history where literature and art were not as important because the main focus was an impending on a civil war. At the beginning of the war aged twenty five Homer accompanied general George B. McClellan with the union army and his paintings became more notable since he visualized his war experiences in paintings to show the American people (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review). However post civil war especially later during the industrial revolution their was more leisure time and more
Reading Book 1 and 2 got me thinking about the meaning on justice and how it was brought up back then and foreshadowing it today. Justice, per Homer and Simonides is a view to help one’s friends and harming one’s enemies. Simonides also mentioned justice is useful when you need to keep people safe and not when useless. In a way, I find that accurate because even though we have government officials keeping things in order, people don't need it until it is necessary. When one's life is threatened, you need government officials to protect you and to keep order and if social order is in place officials are pointless. Even though we have government officials having authority over us people tend to abuse it and unfortunately government officials
Connecting Homer’s writings to form a communal past and identity within their city-state (course readings, section 5, The Iliad) has brought the same focus here in the United States within our country. As Plato discusses, “what is the perfect state?” Plato goes on to say, “The ideal state” has three general classes – magistrates, warriors, and artisans (The Republic, book 7 par 2). Let’s clarify what Plato meant by the three classes. First, the magistrates/rulers who focuses on the moral and virtues of the citizens. Second, the warrior (military) whose only thoughts to protect their citizens and answers to the magistrates. And third, artisans who were the lower class citizens that work in their city-state (The Republic, par 3). Is this
I've set a meeting for this coming Saturn's day because we have not got together in some time. I think this is needed now more than ever so we can reevaluate things and attempt to get the awakeners back on the right path. I know mostly I am at fault for my constant absence, but I didn't make any of you Awakeners because I thought I had to walk you through everything. Regardless, I apologize for not being here for you when you may have needed me and for not being an active leader in our guild.
