Beschreibung Tote schweigen nicht ebook von MWenn ein Mensch Opfer eines Tötungsdelikts wird, beginnt für die Ermittlungsbehörden ein Wettlauf mit der Zeit, denn je länger es dauert, den potenziellen Täterkreis einzugrenzen, desto komplizierter gestaltet sich die endgültige Aufklärung. <br />Wenn man nun davon ausgeht, dass das Opfer leider als Zeuge nicht mehr zur Verfügung steht, weil es die Tat nicht verbalisieren kann, liegt man mit seiner Annahme nur vermeintlich richtig. Der Leichnam ist durchaus nicht verschwiegen und das geschulte (fundierte akademische Ausbildung) Auge kann mitunter die gesamte Geschichte des Tathergangs lesen, mitunter bis hin zur Preisgabe des Täters. <br />Das Buch soll dem Kriminalisten die Sprache der Toten näher bringen, auch deshalb, weil sie oft missverständlich ist. <br />Der 1. Band beschäftigte sich mit den Begriffen der Kriminalistik und der Gerichtsmedizin, zusammengefasst in einen Lexika.<br />Im 2. Band ging es um die Sprache der Toten. Wenn man nun davon ausgeht, dass das Opfer leider als Zeuge nicht mehr zur Verfügung steht, weil es die Tat nicht verbalisieren kann, liegt man mit seiner Annahme nur vermeintlich richtig. Der Leichnam ist durchaus nicht verschwiegen und das geschulte (fundierte akademische Ausbildung) Auge kann mitunter die gesamte Geschichte des Tathergangs lesen, mitunter bis hin zur Preisgabe des Täters.<br />Der nun vorliegende 3. Band beinhaltet Phänomenologie einer Strafsache. Beginnend vom Tatort über die Feststellung Mord-Selbstmord-Unfall bis hin zu den gesetzlichen Grundlagen bietet dieses Buch alles, was Kriminalisten und Gerichtsmediziner benötigen, beachten müssen und durchführen können. Ein Lehrbuch für Kriminalistik, Jura und Rechtsmedizin.

Torgersen-saken døde ikke med Fredrik Fasting Torgersens bortgang i 2015, for Torgersen-saken er større enn Torgersen selv. Helt grunnleggende handler Torgersen-saken om norsk rettssikkerhet og hvordan de som forvalter retten behandler sine medmennesker.<br /><br />Livstidsdømte Torgersen var også forfatter og poet. Denne boka omhandler både Torgersens forfatterskap og Torgersen-saken i litterær belysning.<br /><br />Johan Dragvoll (f. 1970) er doktor i allmenn litteraturvitenskap.

True crime's rising stars Nick van der Leek and Lisa Wilson, fresh from the success of three trilogies dedicated to the unsolved JonBenét Ramsey case, have cast about for a new challenge.<br /> <br />In the West Memphis Three case, they find a heart of darkness to rival the webs of shadowy intrigue bedeviling Boulder Colorado in 1996.<br /><br />“Having written about the unsolved Ramsey case,” writes van der Leek, “I was looking for a challenging case to rival and to sharpen the true crime saw even further. The West Memphis Three saga does precisely that.”<br /><br />But where the Ramsey case was a murk of sophisticated smoke and mirrors and legions of chummy, high-powered lawyers working behind the scenes, as we’re about to see, this story is quite different. In Arkansas, at the heart of America’s crime infested capital, very little makes sense. Out of the woods a slew of unsophisticated folks emerge, each floundering in a self-made soup of blood, mud and twisted psychology.<br /><br />“The irony, for me,” adds Wilson, “was how many supposedly sophisticated folks could be duped by the artless performances of the impoverished and the uneducated, and Echols’ especially.”<br /><br />Getting stuck in the muddiness of our own sick minds, it turns out, is a fate common to rich and poor, genius and imbecile alike. King of Freaks navigates how and why this “getting stuck” happens, and the way through it when it does…<br />

<b><h2>From arresting anarchists in Chicago to chasing down Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch gang, Charles Siringo spent twenty-two years of service fighting crimes across America.</h2></b><br /><br />Having started out as a full-fledged cowboy when only eleven years old, Siringo was most comfortable on horseback in the great expanse of the American West, but his missions often led him further afield to the Canada and Mexico.<br /><br />During his career as a detective Siringo faced some of the most dangerous men and women of the late-nineteenth century and only survived through a combination of bravery, skill and luck.<br /><br />Siringo was most successful when he went undercover into the criminal underworld and uncovered plans for illegal activity.<br /><br />“Among the enduring western master storytellers is Charlie Siringo, cowboy, detective, author, whose career and writings still live in the psyche of millions of westerners today.” Howard Roberts Lamar<br /><br />Unfortunately for Siringo the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, who he had been working for, were unhappy with the publication of the book and so a court order forced him to change their name to the “Dickenson Detective Agency” and for Tom Horn to be changed to “Tim Corn.” Yet, despite this, <em>A Cowboy Detective</em> remains a fascinating work.<br /><br />"His cowboys and gunmen were not of Hollywood and folklore. He was an honest reporter.” J. Frank Dobie<br /><br />Charles Siringo was an American detective, lawman and author. His first book <em>A Texas Cowboy; or, Fifteen Years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony</em> was published in 1885, establishing his reputation as a writer. The year later, he moved to Chicago and joined the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, which he remained with for the next twenty-two years. <em>A Cowboy Detective</em> was first published in 1912. After becoming a New Mexico Ranger for a short period Siringo died in 1928.

<p><em>New York Times</em> best-selling author and Emmy Award–winning news anchor Chris Hayes argues that there are really two Americas: a Colony and a Nation.</p><br /><p>America likes to tell itself that it inhabits a postracial world, yet nearly every empirical measure—wealth, unemployment, incarceration, school segregation—reveals that racial inequality has barely improved since 1968, when Richard Nixon became our first “law and order” president. With the clarity and originality that distinguished his prescient bestseller, <em>Twilight of the Elites</em>, Chris Hayes upends our national conversation on policing and democracy in a book of wide-ranging historical, social, and political analysis.</p><br /><p>Hayes contends our country has fractured in two: the Colony and the Nation. In the Nation, we venerate the law. In the Colony, we obsess over order, fear trumps civil rights, and aggressive policing resembles occupation. <em>A Colony in a Nation</em> explains how a country founded on justice now looks like something uncomfortably close to a police state. How and why did Americans build a system where conditions in Ferguson and West Baltimore mirror those that sparked the American Revolution?</p><br /><p><em>A Colony in a Nation</em> examines the surge in crime that began in the 1960s and peaked in the 1990s, and the unprecedented decline that followed. Drawing on close-hand reporting at flashpoints of racial conflict, as well as deeply personal experiences with policing, Hayes explores cultural touchstones, from the influential “broken windows” theory to the “squeegee men” of late-1980s Manhattan, to show how fear causes us to make dangerous and unfortunate choices, both in our society and at the personal level. With great empathy, he seeks to understand the challenges of policing communities haunted by the omnipresent threat of guns. Most important, he shows that a more democratic and sympathetic justice system already exists—in a place we least suspect.</p><br /><p><em>A Colony in a Nation</em> is an essential book—searing and insightful—that will reframe our thinking about law and order in the years to come.</p>

<DIV><B>Soon to be a major motion picture starring Emilia Clarke and Jack Huston: The “uncommonly trenchant account of the only known FBI agent to confess to murder” (<I>Kirkus Reviews</I>).</B><BR /><BR /> When rookie FBI agent Mark Putnam received his first assignment in 1987, it was the culmination of a lifelong dream, if not the most desirable location. Pikeville, Kentucky, is high in Appalachian coal country, an outpost rife with lawlessness dating back to the Hatfields and McCoys. As a rising star in the bureau, however, Putnam soon was cultivating paid informants and busting drug rings and bank robbers. But when one informant fell in love with him, passion and duty would collide with tragic results.<BR />  <BR /> A coal miner’s daughter, Susan Smith was a young, attractive, struggling single mother. She was also a drug user sometimes described as a con artist, thief, and professional liar. Ultimately, Putnam gave in to Smith’s relentless pursuit. But when he ended the affair, she waged a campaign of vengeance that threatened to destroy him. When at last she confronted him with a shocking announcement, a violent scuffle ensued, and Putnam, in a burst of uncontrolled rage, fatally strangled her.<BR />  <BR /> Though he had everything necessary to get away with murder—a spotless reputation, a victim with multiple enemies, and the protection of the bureau’s impenetrable shield—his conscience wouldn’t allow it. Tormented by a year of guilt and deception, Putnam finally led authorities to Smith’s remains. This is the story of what happened before, during, and after his startling confession—an account that “should take its place on the dark shelf of the best American true crime” (<I>Newsday</I>).<BR />  <BR /><I>Revised and updated, this ebook also includes photos and a new epilogue by the author.</I><BR />  </DIV>

<b>Six Times More Explosive Than 'Making A Murderer'!</b><br /><br /><em>"John Ferak has carved his necessary true-crime niche with another fascinating exploration of unalloyed evil in overlooked places, and a dysfunctional judicial system. A chilling piece of journalism."</em><b>—Ron Franscell, author of THE DARKEST NIGHT and MORGUE: A LIFE IN DEATH</b><br /><br /><b>From The Bestselling Author of BODY OF PROOF and DIXIE'S LAST STAND</b><br /><br />Everyone felt the same way: small-town Nebraska widow Helen Wilson didn’t have an ounce of meanness inside her body. Then on February 5, 1985, one of the coldest nights on record, the unthinkable happened. The sixty-eight-year-old resident was murdered inside her second-floor apartment, but why?<br /><br />Local residents were floored. What type of monster would target a vulnerable widow to fulfill his homicidal sexual fantasies? The crime scene was eerily ritualistic. The trail of evidence turned frustratingly cold until an astonishing breakthrough occurred four years later. A torn scrap of money recovered at the crime scene became the presumed smoking gun that helped solve the hideous crime. The news of six arrests was absolutely stunning to the locals in this easy-going, blue-collar community of 12,000 residents. But why were six loosely connected misfits who lived as far away as Alabama, Colorado and North Carolina being linked to the rape and murder of a beloved Nebraska widow? <br /><br />As they sat in jail, the constant threat of Nebraska’s barbaric electric chair scared the daylights out of these troubled souls, except for one of them. Joseph White remained defiant in his fight to prove his innocence. It didn’t matter. All six of the condemned were convicted of murder and sent away to prison for the ghastly crime. The town moved on, convinced that justice was served.<br /><br />For more than twenty-five years, the Beatrice 6 rotted in prison, until the unthinkable occurred in 2008. Now, the red state in America’s Heartland faced a real quandary that could only mean one thing: Nebraska had a colossal FAILURE OF JUSTICE on its hands. <br /><br />In his latest thrilling true crime book, bestselling and award-winning author John Ferak explores the murder, investigation, trial, conviction and eventual exoneration--the largest such ever in the United States--of the Beatrice 6. <br /><br /><b>For more great WildBlue Press reads, visit our site at wildbluepress.com</b>

<span><span>If you are a bystander and witness a crime, should intervention to prevent that crime be a legal obligation? Or is moral responsibility enough?</span></span><br /><br /><span><span>In The Crime of Complicity, Amos N. Guiora addresses these profoundly important questions and the bystander-victim relationship from a deeply personal and legal perspective, focusing on the Holocaust and then exploring cases in contemporary society. Sharing the experiences of his parents, who were Holocaust survivors, and his grandparents, who did not survive, and drawing on a wide range of historical material and interviews, Guiora examines the bystander during three distinct events: death marches, the German occupation of Holland, and the German occupation of Hungary. He explains that while the Third Reich created policy, its implementation was dependent on bystander non-intervention.</span></span><br /><br /><span><span>Bringing the issue of intervention into current perspective, he examines sexual assault cases at Vanderbilt and Stanford Universities, as well as other crimes where bystanders chose whether or not to intervene, and the resulting consequences.</span></span><br /><br /><span><span>After examining the intensely personal example of his own parents’ survival of the Holocaust, Guiora asserts that a society cannot rely on morals and compassion alone in determining our obligation to help another in danger. It is ultimately, he concludes, a legal issue.</span></span><br /><br /><span><span>Should we make the obligation to intervene the law, and thus non-intervention a crime?</span></span>
