<em>“A voice for all who have been silenced."</em><b>- Lt. Joe Kenda (ret), the ‘Homicide Hunter’</b><br /><br />As a law enforcement officer for more than fifteen years, Detective Kenneth L. Mains has investigated thousands of crimes, including working undercover with the FBI, solving cold case homicides, investigating the Mafia, and leading one of the greatest cold case organizations ever assembled. This is his story and that of the victims for whom he speaks.<br /><br /><em>“A tremendous amount of respect for his investigative insights and his integrity.”</em><b>— Jim Clemente, former FBI profiler and writer for “Criminal Minds.”</b><br /><br /><b>UNSOLVED NO MORE</b> will take readers on a journey with a struggling kid who barely graduated high school to a teenager who joined the Marine Corps and finally a man who put himself through college to accomplish his lifelong goal of becoming a police detective. Mains, who is routinely sought out by law enforcement and victims’ families to help solve cold cases, writes about his own investigations to show readers how he goes about solving crimes others had given up on.<br /><br /><em>“I am determined to be the voice of the lost and the forgotten.”</em><b>—Kenneth Mains</b><br />

Eles logo começaram a discutir. Hornung conhecia cada erva daninha, cada flor no bairro e, por algum motivo constantemente pop-los debaixo do nariz do Comissário. Theuer, uma criança da cidade, ainda podia distinguir as árvores de fruto, de coníferas, árvore de maçã de um pinheiro, mas nada mais não quero saber. Sua namorada o chamou para inspecionar as ruínas góticas, e ele preferiu se sentar no banco, sentindo a brisa suave em seu rosto e deixando um gole ou dois. Quando o meio da noite, de repente desperta desejo, Hornung estava dormindo, e quando ela queria fechar, ele não poderia responder a ela.

Esta Coleção tem como ponto de partida os estudos promovidos pelo Grupo de Pesquisa "Políticas Públicas de Segurança e Direitos Humanos". Através do Programa de Incentivo à Pesquisa da Pró-Reitoria de Pós-Graduação da Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo, foi possível a edição da Coleção: Políticas Públicas de Segurança e a Crise do Sistema de Garantias. A Coleção traz o estudo, a pesquisa e a investigação do fenômeno da segurança pública, em razão de novas necessidades da sociedade, frente à criminalidade contemporânea, globalizada, organizada, econômica e virtual. A Constituição Federal, no Título V, “Da Defesa do Estado e das Instituições Democráticas”, Capítulo III, “Da Segurança Pública”, traz em seu artigo 144 “A segurança pública, dever do Estado, direito e responsabilidade de todos, é exercida para a preservação da ordem pública e da incolumidade das pessoas e do patrimônio”. Diante desta responsabilidade social, garantia e dever constitucional, enfrentamos nesta Coletânea a exigência jurídica e social da análise das técnicas sistêmicas empregadas pelo Estado, em suas políticas públicas de segurança, bem como das atividades do Estado destinadas à prevenção, à repressão, à investigação e à judicialização dos fenômenos envolvidos na Segurança Pública. A Coleção desenvolveu também o estudo do direito processual penal e do direito penal, em uma análise da tutela dos direitos fundamentais, em face das mais variadas alternativas de exercício arbitrário de poder, em uma verificação da contraposição entre o momento de legislar e o de exercer a jurisdição. Esta verificação constitucional das bases do sistema jurídico penal e processual penal ocorreu sob a ótica de posicionamentos garantistas, em face das consequências jurídicas e sociológicas decorrentes da violência urbana; foi exigido dos autores um questionamento constante sobre produção de políticas e estratégias de segurança, com o uso de medidas de emergência, comprovadamente repressivas, excludentes e ineficazes, especialmente com o desvirtuamento de instrumentos políticos e jurídicos, destinados à garantia de direitos humanos. Os alvos sociais do sistema jurídico e do sistema de segurança pública, em face dos direitos e garantias fundamentais foram os principais focos desta Coleção. Convido a todos para apreciar esta oportunidade, vivendo um pouco o pensamento de cada um dos convidados que integram este estudo.<br />Claudio José Langroiva Pereira

Our legal system is committed to the idea that private markets and the law of contracts that supports them are the primary institutions for allocating goods and services in a modern economy. Yet the market paradigm, this book argues, leaves substantial room for challenge.

<div>Roger Douglas compares responses to terrorism by five liberal democracies—the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand—over the past 15 years. He examines each nation’s development and implementation of counterterrorism law, specifically in the areas of information-gathering, the definition of terrorist offenses, due process for the accused, detention, and torture and other forms of coercive questioning.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Douglas finds that terrorist attacks elicit pressures for quick responses, often allowing national governments to accrue additional powers. But emergencies are neither a necessary nor a sufficient condition for such laws, which may persist even after fears have eased. He argues that responses are influenced by both institutional interests and prior beliefs, and complicated when the exigencies of office and beliefs point in different directions. He also argues that citizens are wary of government’s impingement on civil liberties and that courts exercise their capacity to restrain the legislative and executive branches. Douglas concludes that the worst antiterror excesses have taken place outside of the law rather than within, and that the legacy of 9/11 includes both laws that expand government powers and judicial decisions that limit those very powers.</div>

<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.

<div>The legal definition of child pornography is, at best, unclear. In part because of this ambiguity and in part because of the nature of the crime itself, the prosecution and sentencing of perpetrators, the protection of and restitution for victims, and the means for preventing repeat offenses are deeply controversial. In <i>Refining Child Pornography Law</i>, experts in law, sociology, and social work examine child pornography law and its consequences in an effort to clarify the questions and begin to formulate answers. Focusing on the roles of language and crime definition, the contributors discuss the increasing visibility child pornography plays in the national conversation about child safety, and present a range of views regarding the punishment of those who produce, distribute, and possess materials that may be considered child pornography.</div>
