On June 28, 1972 in a South Bronx subway station, John Skagen, a white off-duty policeman on his way home, suddenly and without apparent provocation, ordered James Richardson, a black man on his way to work, to get against the wall and put his hands up. Richardson had a gun, and the two exchanged shots. In the melee that followed, Skagen was fatally wounded by a cop who rushed to the scene. In the ensuing trial, William Kunstler handled Richardson's defense and the author of this book, then assistant district attorney, prosecuted the case. Here is a first-hand, behind-the-scenes account of every step of the proceedings.

Sociologists and historians can examine and dissect our culture, but only a true eyewitness can offer the details on the ground. In Through the Eyes of a Lawman, author Michael J. Butler presents an insiders look at the people and organizations that have affected the US intelligence services; the modern way law and law enforcement operates and has evolved; the educational deficiencies of the system; and our collective loss of abstract and critical thinking. Through humorous and sober anecdotes, Through the Eyes of a Lawman addresses the issue of whether we have become a make-it-up-as-we-go-along society. Butlers story begins in the 1950s in Brooklyn, New York, and is told through his perspective as a retired cop, lawyer, former US intelligence analyst, and college instructor. Against the backdrop of his extensive law enforcement experience, Butler paints a portrait of todays society and culture, examines how it has been evolving, and explores what it means for the countrys future. Through the Eyes of a Lawman goes behind the curtain that separates the people from the law, police, the courts, the intelligence services, and the government to analyze the ideas of heroes, villains, cops, terrorism, trials, classrooms, judges, soldiers, Vietnam, and politics.

African Americans migrated from southern regions of the United States, the Caribbean, and Africa during the early 20th century, settling in large urban communities in the Midwestern, Northern, and Western regions of the United States. During the early 21st century, African Americans continued their post-industrialized transition from their initial urban locations to suburban and exurban locations, with class, income, and education being the predominant factors in determining locations of choice. However, the result of this 21st century exodus gave rise to an increased sense of isolation, loss of identify, and the gradual erosion of political power unique to urban communities in the late 20th century. African American Suburbanization and the Consequential Loss of Identity is a critical scholarly resource that examines the experiences of African Americans and the development of African American identities. It represents an important opportunity for an examination of the implications of this 21st century exodus, giving voice to all aspects of African American-lived experiences in suburban communities. Featuring a wide range of topics such as higher education, criminal justice, and social media, this book is ideal for professionals, educators, social scientists, political leaders, law enforcement, students, and researchers.

Paul Ferris was one of Britain's most feared gangsters for twenty-five years. Now, in Villains, Ferris reveals the real inside story of the villains he met and worked with, the common thugs and big-time players that surrounded him and the world of violence and fear he lived in every day of his life. In Glasgow, London and Manchester, Paul Ferris knew and worked with the biggest gangsters in the UK - everyone from Arthur Thompson in Glasgow to the Addams family in London and Rab Carruthers in Manchester. Villains is the story of the hard lives of hard men by someone who knows. There's jewel heists, crime families, new stories about Glasgow's Godfather, Arthur Thompson, a secret meeting with loyalist 'Mad Dog' Johnny Adair, the Glasgow hard man who loved bingo, and much more. And, when it comes to villains, it takes one to know one.

Sample Script 1: Act One of a Screenplay Sample Script 2: One-Hour Teleplay Sample Script 3: Situation Comedy A Guide to Screenwriting Success provides a comprehensive overview of writing-and rewriting-a screenplay or teleplay. Duncan's handy book teaches new screenwriters the process of creating a professional screenplay from beginning to end. It shows that inspiration, creativity, and good writing are not elusive concepts but attainable goals that any motivated person can aspire to. Duncan includes sections on all aspects of screenwriting-from character development to story templates-and breaks down the three acts of a screenplay into manageable pieces. A Guide to Screenwriting Success contains dozens of exercises to help writers through these steps. The second half of Duncan's practical book covers another, often overlooked, side of screenwriting-the teleplay. Aspiring writers who also want to try their hand at writing for television will need to learn the specifics of the field. The book breaks down this area into two parts, the one-hour teleplay and the situation comedy. Success in screenwriting is no longer a dream but an achievable goal for those who pick up Duncan's guide.

Policing and corruption are inseparable. This book argues that corruption is not one thing but covers many deviant and criminal practices in policing which also shift over time. It rejects the 'bad apple' metaphor and focuses on 'bad orchards', meaning not individual but institutional failure. For in policing the organisation, work and culture foster can encourage corruption. This raises issues as to why do police break the law and, crucially, 'who controls the controllers'? Corruption is defined in a broad, multi-facetted way. It concerns abuse of authority and trust; and it takes serious form in conspiracies to break the law and to evade exposure when cops can become criminals. Attention is paid to typologies of corruption (with grass-eaters, meat-eaters, noble-cause); the forms corruption takes in diverse environments; the pathways officers take into corruption and their rationalisations; and to collusion in corruption from within and without the organization. Comparative analyses are made of corruption, scandal and reform principally in the USA, UK and the Netherlands. The work examines issues of control, accountability and the new institutions of oversight. It provides a fresh, accessible overview of this under-researched topic for students, academics, police and criminal justice officials and members of oversight agencies.

COPS AREN'T SUCH BAD GUYS features a series of blogs I have written about cops and fatal shootings. As discussed in these blogs, most of these killings are actually justified, because of the use of force guidelines which cops follow in the face of a deadly threat, despite the widespread anger and protests against the cops. But this reaction is fueled by misinformation and sensational media coverage, while the cops involved in these shootings have their lives upended by extensive hearings and huge financial expenses. The chapters in this book are designed to provide a more incisive look at the truth behind these fatalities. It covers these topics: - cops and fatal shootings - how misinformation leads to anger against cops and the system - the extensive hearings after a fatal shooting - the role of the media in promoting violence in police fatalities

Policing and the Media provides an up-to-date overview of the changing dynamics and dimensions of the relationships that exist on the British police-media nexus. Factual, fictional and factional representations of policing in the media are the major - and for a great many citizens probably the sole - influence in shaping their perceptions and opinions about crime, law and order, community safety, police efficiency and integrity, not to mention the efficacy of criminal justice and penal policy. This book deals with all three representations, noting the lines between such clear divisions are increasingly blurred and the concepts of reality, realism and representation, slippery and complex.

In this exciting true story of how heroes from other countries faced up to the Germans and Vichy, risking their lives to help hide or spirit Jews out of France, heroes like the American volunteers and American consul in Lyon and heroes like French pastors, bishops, monks, nuns, the French Rsistance and Jewish underground. These, then, are some of their stories.
