NOW A NATIONAL BESTSELLERNew York Times bestselling authors Dan Abrams and David Fisher bring to life the incredible story of one of America’s most publicizedand most surprisingcriminal trials in history. No crime in history had more eyewitnesses. On November 24, 1963, two days after the killing of President Kennedy, a troubled nightclub owner named Jack Ruby quietly slipped into the Dallas police station and assassinated the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald.

Millions of Americans witnessed the killing on live television, and yet the event would lead to questions for years to come. It also would help to spark the conspiracy theories that have continued to resonate today. Under the long shadow cast by the assassination of America’s beloved president, few would remember the bizarre trial that followed three months later in Dallas, Texas.

How exactly does one defend a man who was seen pulling the trigger in front of millions? And, more important, how did Jack Ruby, who fired point-blank into Oswald live on television, die an innocent man? Featuring a colorful cast of characters, including the nation’s most flamboyant lawyer pitted against a tough-as-Texas prosecutor, award-winning authors Dan Abrams and David Fisher unveil the astonishing details behind the first major trial of the television century.

3. Are Prisons Obsolete?

Author: by Angela Y. Davis

With her characteristic brilliance, grace and radical audacity, Angela Y. Davis has put the case for the latest abolition movement in American life: the abolition of the prison. As she quite correctly notes, American life is replete with abolition movements, and when they were engaged in these struggles, their chances of success seemed almost unthinkable.

For generations of Americans, the abolition of slavery was sheerest illusion. Similarly,the entrenched system of racial segregation seemed to last forever, and generations lived in the midst of the practice, with few predicting its passage from custom. The brutal, exploitative (dare one say lucrative?

Convict-lease system that succeeded formal slavery reaped millions to southern jurisdictions (and untold miseries for tens of thousands of men, and women). Few predicted its passing from the American penal landscape. Davis expertly argues how social movements transformed these social, political and cultural institutions, and made such practices untenable.

32 True Crime Stories of Murder & MayhemReaders love this series – More than 1,400 five-star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. Three Book Collection Only $22. 76 (33% Off – Originally $33. 97)Three Book Collection. First Three Books of the True Crime Case Histories Series (2019)A quick word of warning.

The true crime short stories within this three book collection are unimaginably gruesome. I start all of my True Crime books with a quick word of warning. Most news articles and television true crime shows skim over the vile details of truly horrible crimes.

In my books I don’t gloss over the facts, regardless of how disgusting they may be. I try to give my readers a clear and accurate description on just how demented the killers really were. I do my best not to leave anything out.

The stories included in these books are not for the squeamish. What you are about to read are my first three books. The stories in this collection will make you realize just how fragile the human mind can be. A sampling of the stories include:The Canal Killer – A violent psychopath cuts off the head, hands, and feet of his girlfriends and dumps them in the canals of London and Rotterdam.

11. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

Author: by Michelle Alexander
336 pages

View on Amazon

Once in a great while a book comes along that changes the way we see the world and helps to fuel a nationwide social movement. The New Jim Crow is such a book. Praised by Harvard Law professor Lani Guinier as “brave and bold,” this book directly challenges the notion that the election of Barack Obama signals a new era of colorblindness.

With dazzling candor, legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues that “we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it.” By targeting black men through the War on Drugs and decimating communities of color, the U.S. Criminal justice system functions as a contemporary system of racial controlrelegating millions to a permanent second-class statuseven as it formally adheres to the principle of colorblindness.

In the words of Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, this book is a “call to action.” Called “stunning” by Pulitzer Prizewinning historian David Levering Lewis, “invaluable” by the Daily Kos, “explosive” by Kirkus, and “profoundly necessary” by the Miami Herald, this updated and revised paperback edition of The New Jim Crow, now with a foreword by Cornel West, is a must-read for all people of conscience.

The purpose of this book is simple: I want you to become an articulation expert. Articulation is often the key to winning suppression hearings, trials, and civil right’s lawsuits. Articulation has two goals. First, you need to provide enough evidence to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt.

Second, you must describe how you obtained your evidence lawfully. In other words, were your searches and seizures in compliance with the Fourth Amendment? And were your confessions, if any, in compliance with the Fifth Amendment? Do that and you have a bulletproof report.

This book also include HUNDREDS of articulation examples.

Author: by Ryan Green

View on Amazon

I have no desire whatever to reform myself. My only desire is to reform people who try to reform me. And I believe that the only way to reform people is to kill ’em. My motto is, Rob em all, Rape em all and Kill em all.

Carl PanzramIn 1902, at the age of 11, Carl Panzram broke into a neighbour’s home and stole some apples, a pie, and a revolver. As a frequent troublemaker, the court decided to make an example of him and placed him into the care of the Minnesota State Reform School.

During his two-year detention, Carl was repeatedly beaten, tortured, humiliated and raped by the school staff. At 15-years old, Carl enlisted in the army by lying about his age but his career was short-lived. He was dishonourably discharged for stealing army supplies and was sent to military prison.

The brutal prison system sculpted Carl into the man that he would remain for the rest of his life. He hated the whole of mankind and wanted revenge. When Carl left prison in 1910, he set out to rob, burn, rape and kill as many people as he could, for as long as he could.
