Did Sacco and Vanzetti had a fair trial? Why not?
Were they guilty of the crime?
No , Sacco and Vanzetti didn’t have a fair trail as they didn’t commit any crime but they got arrested and sentenced to death just because they are anarchists and confessed that they hated the capitalism and the American system of the government. Also, the Americans who tried them are all biases and when the court case was trailed, it was the height of the red scare so all Americans were being so paranoid when they knew that a murder case had something to do with foreigners and they didn’t even find out what the truth was and just assumed that Sacco and Vanzetti were the attackers. More over , there are evidence proved that there are some people (107 of them) had confirmed that Sacco and Vanzetti were in somewhere else at the time of the crime . Those time witnesses can prove that Sacco and Vanzetti were innocent but unfortunately , most of them were recent Italian immigrants and they could hardly speak any English . That was certainly not a fair trial.
Sacco and Vanzetti were not guilty to the crime at all because they had never done the crime they were charged. This is what Vanzetti said when he was being led to the electric chair, “I want to tell you that I am innocent and that I have never committed any crime but sometimes sins..’ we can see that they are not guilty at all as they did not attack the two Americans and also , we can see that they did not die in shame and guiltiness but in pride and will not regret what that have done . ‘ I am suffering because I am a radical and Indeed I am a radical; I have suffered because I was Italian and indeed I am an Italian; ……if I could be reborn two other times, I would have live again to do what I have done already.’
