Paragraph

The Sacco & Vanzetti Case affected many people thoughts about how cases should be in the future. There were many negatives and positives moving on toward the future of the society. People can have their can now have their own opinions about something they don’t like about a crime. Today we have people who take place in trials who help figure certain cases where many people are found innocent due to people speaking out. Many people thought the two were innocent, but not good English basically determined their fate. Not having good English is a negative with certain situations. Sacco and Vanzetti were Italian so therefore they didn’t know any proper English. One thing that would be nice to have is a translator to give their side of the story. Politicians were the most upset with this because the two men were left wing politicians so they had support on there side.
