Hey, look at that lobster back!
In 1768, there started to become a conflict. The Bostonians were making fun of the British army, calling them lobster backs, and even Sam Adams taught his dog to nip at their heels.
On March 5, 1770, a noisy mob began throwing rocks and ice-balls at troops guarding the Boston Customs House.
Hi sir. I just wanted to inform you that the men who fired and killed are being trialed for murder.
Then a mob started to appear, and yelling("come on you rascals, you bloody backs! Fire if you dare!") The mob eventually grew so big, they knocked one of the guards down.
As of today, I set the 6 soldiers as innocent, and the other two charged with manslaughter, or unmeaningly killing, however not coming at price or charge.
At this point the defending soldiers had had enough, and that they were going to fight back. They did what the people wanted, shot their guns.
Everyone set home early that day, being known that the soldiers who had shot off their weaponry were going to be trialed .
However, at the trial, most of the soldiers who had fired off got let off easy as innocent. However, two were charged at no cost of manslaughter, or accidental killing
