Rosa Parks Day | OC Human Relations
Rosa Louise McCauley Parks
(February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005)

(FOX NEWS) – Rosa Parks, a 42-year-old African American
seamstress and local activist, refused to give up her seat
to a White passenger on a
Montgomery, Alabama, public
bus on this day in history, Dec. 1, 1955.

"The only tired I was, was tired of giving in," Parks said of
her decision to challenge local authority.

Black bus riders were required to sit in the back of the bus,
and to also give up those seats to White riders if the front
seats were filled, under local Montgomery ordinance.

The case became bogged down in the state courts, but the
federal Montgomery bus lawsuit Browder v. Gayle resulted
in a November 1956 decision that bus segregation is
unconstitutional under the
Equal Protection Clause of
the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

On This Day, September 23rd

On September 23, 1875, Billy the Kid was arrested for the first
time after being involved in the stealing of a basket of clothes
from a Chinese laundry. It was a result of a 15-year-old’s prank,
gone wrong.

He later broke out of jail and roamed the American West,
eventually earning a reputation as an outlaw and murderer
with a rap sheet that
allegedly included 21 murders.

The exact details of Billy the Kid’s birth are unknown, other
than his name, William Henry McCarty. He was probably born
sometime between 1859 and 1861, in Indiana or New York.

On August 10, 1977, 24-year-old postal employee David Berkowitz
was arrested and charged with being the “Son of Sam,” the serial
killer who terrorized
New York City for more than a year, killing
six young people and wounding seven others with a .44-caliber
revolver. Because Berkowitz generally targeted attractive young
women with long brown hair, hundreds of young women had their
hair cut short and dyed blonde during the time he terrorized the
city. Thousands more simply stayed home at night.

After his arrest, Berkowitz claimed that demons and a black
Labrador retriever owned by a neighbor named Sam had
ordered him to commit the killings.

Simpson trial nears final phase - Sept. 24, 1995

Nicole Brown Simpson, famous football player O.J. Simpson’s
ex-wife, and her friend Ron Goldman were brutally stabbed to
death outside Nicole’s home in Brentwood,
California, in what
quickly becomes one of the most highly publicized trials of the
century. With overwhelming evidence against him, including a
prior record of domestic violence towards Brown, O.J. Simpson
became the chief suspect.

Although he had agreed to turn himself in, Simpson escaped
with  friend A.C. Cowlings in his white Ford Bronco (below) on
June 17. He was carrying his passport, a disguise, and $8,750
in cash. Simpson’s car was spotted that afternoon, but he
refused to surrender immediately. Threatening to kill himself,
he led police in a low-speed chase through the freeways of
Los Angeles as the entire nation watched on television.
Eventually, Simpson gave himself up at his home in
