Salem Witch Trials
The Salem Witch Trials was a series of prosecutions of people being accused of witchcraft in Massachusetts and it was from 1692 to 1693. The result of the trials was 20 people were hanged. But the trials were all pointless because the accusations of witchcraft were fake. All the people hanged were all innocent they were hanged because some people lied. Almost all the people went to church on a regular basis and they were all good moral people.
The Contaminated Coca Cola Scare of 1999
A incident occurred in June of 1999 then more than 100 students in Belgium felt ill after drinking a Coca Cola. This incident costed the company 200 million dollars and a several day ban in other European countries. When examining the products there was shown a bad batch of carbon dioxide and phenol. But the scientists said it was a too small amount to cause real damage. The case was ruled a case of mass Hysteria and nothing further.
Comparisons Between the Witch Trials and the Coca Cola Scare
The Coca Cola scare and the witch craft trials are similar and different but the same. They both were told then spread like wild fire even if it was true or not. They were both non-lethal because one was a lie and the other was pretty much harmless. In the witch trials people died because of Lie and in the coca cola scare people just became ill because of some gone bad ingredients. They are the same because these too incidents might have different situation but they are still the same in the way that people over reacted and took affect no matter if there was true evidence or not.
