The maverick public defender who inspired John Grisham tells the story of his most frustrating case A man accused of a murder he didn’t commit languishes on death row. A crusading lawyer is determined to free him. This powerful book reads like a page-turning legal thriller with one crucial difference: Justice is not served in the end. In 1986, Kris Maharaj was arrested in Miami for the murder of his ex- business partner. A witness swore he saw him pull the trigger and a jury found him guilty and sentenced him to death. But he swears he didn’t do it. Twenty years later, he’s bankrupted himself on appeals and been abandoned by everyone but his wife. Enter Clive Stafford Smith, a charismatic public defender with a passion for lost causes who calls up old files and embarks on his own investigation. It takes him from Miami to Nassau to Washington as he uncovers corruption at every turn. Step by step, Clive slowly dismantles the case, guiding us through the whole scaffolding of the legal process and revealing a fundamentally broken system whose goal is not so much to find the right man as to convict. A bombshell whose final chapter should re-open a long closed case, The Injustice System will appeal to fans of true crime and anyone who has served on a jury.
The people who denied Bill his US constitutional rights and protections know who they are and what they did for the love of money. Now, the rest of the world can know, too. This is the story of a laymans fight against a justice system that refuses to look out for his rights. Child Protective Services literally rips Bills family apart, stealing his younger daughter Joanna. It all starts when Allicia falls in love with a boy shell do anything to be witheven if that means accusing her father of sexually abusing her from an early age. Seeking to build a case, investigators badger other family members to get them to come over to the states side. A police report ends up being a preliminary brief on behalf of the prosecution instead of a retelling of the facts. Bill had to learn how to file motions and appeals. Its a lot of work, but he knows the truth, and hell do whatever it takes to expose The Injustice of the Justice System.
The year was 1925. A young copyboy, just out of college, was given the job of reporter. Not only was he fulfilling his life’s dream, he was reporting on a trial that became the interest of the nation. In a small rural town in Alabama in 1925, a man was prosecuted for a capital crime. Was he tried fairly based on the facts? Did the town people get so caught up in the excitement of their exposure from the trial that justice was placed by the wayside? Was there a predestined outcome for this trial with the accuser being an elderly white woman and the accused being her gardener, an elderly black man. Tho slavery had been over for many years, the teachings were passed down from previous generations. “White was Right,” with no questions asked. The Injustice of Justice shows just how deeply the separation by color was and of the consequences. The story may tug at your conscience and your heart. Either way, it may be an emotional experience that will leave you sympathetic to an elderly black man named “Jake.”
This book explores issues related to poverty in South Asia in a two-pronged manner—by focusing on injustice created and perpetuated by the unjust nature of a social order as its source and by providing concrete suggestions about how policymakers may move to challenge these injustices. Drawing on research inputs from studies across various South Asian countries, the book redefines poverty as a process which excludes certain segments of the society from equitable participation in development opportunities as well as decision-making. It further identifies a variety of operational ideas which can be used by policymakers, political activists, and civil society advocacy groups committed to build a more just, inclusive and poverty free society in South Asia.
The Injustice of Justice is a purposeful book designed to introduce the public as well as the profession to an alternate method of policing with a whole-community and responsibility-based approach. Don has written the book from the perspective of a businessman whose interest and subsequent involvement stems first from his employee, then a compassionate and compelling group of individuals in law enforcement and our justice system. "Equal protection under the law is one of the basic premises of the American justice system. Yet many Americans feel this concept is not only elusive, but virtually impossible to attain. It's something we hope for and work to make real. Chief Grady has given us a practical approach to seeking justice while at the same time practicing reality. His book should be a must read for courses in community-police relations and for individuals and groups who want to better understand how our criminal justice system works, what good policing is, what changes are needed, and how we can all engage in making it happen. One of the great divides in our country is how different racial, ethnic, gender and age groups view law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Donald Grady, Ph.D. has written an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand and easy-to-decipher book that becomes more intriguing with each page. I love it!" --Danny K. Davis, Ph.D.; U.S. Representative; 7th Congressional District, Illinois
