Murder In Connecticut

by Michael Benson, author of The Devil at Genesee Junction, Murder In Connecticut Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Murder In Connecticut books, DIVAn incisive, unflinching account of the shocking, summer 2007 Connecticut crime that is still making national headlines, Murder in Connecticut examines what happened to Dr. William Petit, his wife Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and their two daughters, Hayley and Michaela, in the early morning hours of July 23 in the quiet town of Cheshire--and how their community rallied bravely around the sole survivor of this vicious home invasion. Who was the Petit family? How were they marked for murder by their killers, Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes? How could these men have dreamed up such a crime? And will these horrifying murders--with startling similarities to the case in Truman Capote's classic In Cold Blood--really be the impetus behind sweeping parole reform laws that will not only affect Connecticut, but all of America? /div

My Neighbor Ann

by James Janner, My Neighbor Ann Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download My Neighbor Ann books, My wonderful Seattle neighbor Ann was, after many years, revealed to be someone quite different. But does it matter? My reported essay of this true crime story is about 6,000 words, and takes you not only into her life but also provides a glimpse of 70's Seattle before it was famous for anything beyond the Space Needle. Are we simply the sum of our crimes, or is there a different calculus at work?Pre-publication review by Manuel Ferreira, Bogotá, Colombia: I find it very insightful and analytical. It's also very moving. But what I liked the most is the way the character is described. It is surprising to see how you can examine her personality and her actions without the influence of so many years of friendship. I'd also like to praise the approach you make to human behavior, human errors and repentance. Great piece of writing.

A Murder In Our Town

by Arthur Herzog, A Murder In Our Town Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Murder In Our Town books, From award-winning novelist Arthur Herzog comes a true-crime story of rich and poor, murder and retribution in a town rooted in self-denial. In Salisbury, Connecticut, the lavish weekend homes of wealthy New Yorkers stand only a short distance from the dilapidated houses of the local working class, known as the "raggies." But this seemingly calm and pastoral community has a sordid, evil underbelly. Feeling oppressed by their economic and social status, the three Duntz brothers seek revenge on the wealthy upper class, and historical Salisbury becomes their target. The brothers set fire to the Salisbury town hall, a 235-year-old symbol of the town's proud heritage. But when Earl Morey confesses to seeing one of the brothers commit the crime, he is found shot to death one early October morning. Driven to bring the murderer to justice, Lieutenant James Hiltz launches the largest, most complex investigation in the history of the Connecticut State Police. But the rich are apathetic and the poor fear retribution from the Duntzes, who hamper law enforcement's efforts to capture Morey's killer and further entrench the division between rich and poor. A gripping true crime tale, "A Murder in Our Town" reveals the curious juxtaposition of the privileged and poor in small-town America.

American Conflicts Law Cases And Materials

by Robert L. Felix, American Conflicts Law Cases And Materials Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download American Conflicts Law Cases And Materials books, The Fifth Edition provides a comprehensive set of teaching materials for the course in Conflict of Laws as it is taught in most American law schools. It includes some new cases, selected for their teaching value, while also retaining the best cases from the prior edition. It also includes problems in all chapters to test the students' understanding of each segment of material covered in the course. The first three chapters establish the historical background for the study of Conflict of Laws, introduce the students to all of the Conflicts systems existing in the United States, and explore the constitutional limits on the ability of the states to apply their law to multistate transactions and occurrences. With this background, the following four chapters examine the operation of the choice-of-law doctrines used in the areas of torts, contracts, property, and domestic relations. The grounding provided by the first three chapters allows teachers to choose those topics to teach in the following four chapters without necessarily covering the chapters in their entirety if time does not permit. The final three chapters deal with vertical choice of law (the Erie doctrine), interstate judgment enforcement, and personal jurisdiction. The book is organized so that these final three chapters can be covered out of order to suit a wide range of teaching preferences. Each chapter contains note material following the cases to help teachers explore the full range of issues raised by the doctrines being studied. The problems contained in each chapter increase the students' comprehension of the materials and provide a basis for more interesting classroom discussions.

Capital Punishment New Perspectives

by Peter Hodgkinson, Capital Punishment New Perspectives Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Capital Punishment New Perspectives books, This collection asks questions about the received wisdom of the debate about capital punishment. Woven through the book, questions are asked of, and remedies proposed for, a raft of issues identified as having been overlooked in the traditional discourse. It provides a long overdue review of the disparate groups and strategies that lay claim to abolitionism. The authors argue that capital litigators should use their skills challenging the abuses not just of process, but of the conditions in which the condemned await their fate, namely prison conditions, education, leisure, visits, medical services, etc. In the aftermath of successful constitutional challenges it is the beneficiaries (arguably those who are considered successes, having been ’saved’ from the death penalty and now serving living death penalties of one sort or another) who are suffering the cruel and inhumane alternative. Part I of the book offers a selection of diverse, nuanced examinations of death penalty phenomena, scrutinizing complexities frequently omitted from the narrative of academics and activists. It offers a challenging and comprehensive analysis of issues critical to the abolition debate. Part II offers examinations of countries usually absent from academic analysis to provide an understanding of the status of the debate locally, with opportunities for wider application.
