The Ku Klux Klan made a reappearance in American in the 1920s. Their message of hate toward African Americans, immigrants, and Catholics stemmed from urbanization, industrialization, and immigration. Their numbers rose quickly as they put in place a system of recruitment to appeal to white Protestants. This is a flyer for an event held by the Milwaukee, WI chapter of the KKK. Recruitment and outreach tactics were used by the organization.

Teenagers Diane Zamora and David Graham started dating in August 1995, but in November of that year Graham was unfaithful to Diane. When he confessed his infidelity, Diane told him he must kill the girl he had betrayed her with, Adrianne Jones. On 3 December, in their home town of Grand Prairie, Texas, David arranged a date with Adrianne. Together they drove out to a secluded spot where Diane, hidden in the car, smashed her victim’s head in with a dumbbell. The body was found the next day and David was interviewed and cleared, but in August the following year Diane confessed to two friends who promptly contacted the authorities. On 17 February 1998 Diane was convicted and received a life sentence. In July of that year David was also convicted and sentenced to life.
Robert Shulman was an American serial killer. Shulman, a postal worker from Hicksville, New York, on Long Island, was convicted of killing five prostitutes between 1991 and 1996, the year he was arrested.
Shulman was sentenced to death in 1999 for the only murder he committed after New York State reinstated the death penalty in 1995. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for his other murders since New York’s death penalty was not in effect at the same time he committed them. His sentence was later reduced to life in prison after the New York State Court of Appeals invalidated the death penalty in 2004.
Robert Shulman died of natural causes exactly 10 years and one week after his arrest.
Over three thousand people perished that day, but the photographs from 9/11 do not show mangled corpses and bloody carnage.
