This book presents the stories of men and women charged with murder in nineteenth century Ireland. Some were found guilty and sentenced to death and others were sent to the Central Criminal Asylum for Ireland at Dundrum. For those considered to be 'insane' at the time of committing the crime, their fate was an indefinite committal to Dundrum. For those considered responsible for their actions, it meant the death sentence which, in the first half of the century, was often reduced to transportation and, in the second half of the century, to penal servitude within the prison system. Drawing on her specialist knowledge of mental health policy and law, and with unique access to convict records, Prior explores these crimes within the context of criminal justice policies in Ireland at this time. Her examination of previously unexamined records shows that court judgments were highly gendered. The death penalty remained a possibility for anyone found guilty of murder and while the execution of

@2@A murder has taken place on stage and it seems that one of three people must be guilty. The crime was committed in full view of the audience and players, but no one can say whom the murderer is. There appear to be no clues, the suspects are all well trained in the art of dissimulation, and all three deny any knowledge of the crime.@3@@2@It looks like the perfect murder, until Dr Basil Willing, psychiatrist-sleuth, begins to investigate the peculiar behaviour of a pet canary and a housefly.@3@

The Man Who Knew Too Much
2,50 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Man Who Knew Too Much is a compilation of eight detective stories by the English philosopher and prolific writer Gilbert Keith Chesterton. The protagonist of these stories is the man of the title, Horne Fisher, an upper-class detective whose investigative gifts often put him in uncomfortable situations where he has to take difficult decisions. In stories like 'The Face in the Target' and 'The Vengeance of the Statue,' which are all told by a third-person narrator, Fisher uses his deductive faculties and theatrical representations to absolve the innocent and incriminate the guilty. Most of the crimes dealt with in these stories are about mysterious murders. Yet, Fisher has also to solve other cases related to theft as well as to disputes over money and estates. Due to his friendly or family relationships with influential statesmen, Fisher often finds himself with 'too much' knowledge about the way things are run in the country. This paradoxically valuable and embarrassing knowledge forces him many a time to let the murderer get away with his crime in order to avoid something more dangerous to happen to the country such as war or rebellion.

American Criminal Justice System Inc

The United States is only about 5 percent of the world's population, but home to 25 per cent of global prisoners. The American criminal justice system presently is broken, and an example of justice run amok. The system has deteriorated to a point whereby innocent people are being imprisoned even with the lack of sufficient evidence. For the real criminals, punishments are often not commensurate with the crime. Consequently, the criminal justice system does more harm than good - destroying lives, shattering dreams and crushing hopes and aspirations for happiness. The credo of legal jurisprudence in any civilized dispensation is that the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty by a competent jurisdiction. However, in America, the reverse is the case due to its misguided penal policies spawned by greed and the interplay of politics and business within it. Prosecutors take to the extreme the dangerous human impulse to punish perceived offenders - real or imagined. Stories of prosecutorial abuse run like a horror movie. Reports of unwarranted arrests, police brutality, senseless prosecutions, and mass incarceration are a commonplace to the extent that the country's legal system is teetering dangerously towards a precipice. Across the country, the visible signs of pain and anguish can be seen in many families devastated by the imprisonment of a loved one and the so-called respect for human rights can only be thought of in relative terms. The lack of a guilty mind no longer matters in criminal cases in U.S. courts. As a result, the nation has drifted from the core foundations and principles on which the Union was built, which adds up to one concept and one word: freedom. In the context of the nation's criminal justice system, this 'American Creed' lies in tatters. American Criminal Justice System, Inc: Rogue Criminal Prosecution in an Era of Mass Incarceration, is a product of my experience with the U.S. legal system. It is also a concept of the knowledge I gained from many that I met in prison - guilty and innocent. This book communicates clearly and presents a compelling argument of how government prosecutors and their cronies use crazy laws, plea bargaining, false witnesses and other unwholesome tactics to oppress its people. It is my hope that telling my story, alongside the efforts of others, will shed new light into the dark alley of the U.S. legal system. This book will also remind me that every day that I live in freedom, many languish in captivity.
