<b>They Had No Fear Of The Cops Because They <em>Were</em> The Cops</b><br /><br />NYPD officers Mike Dowd and Kenny Eurell knew there were two ways to get rich quick in Brooklyn's Lower East Side. You either became drug dealers, or you robbed drug dealers. They decided to do both. <br /><br /><em>“I promised my wife that we would make a lot of money, and that she had nothing to worry about. I LIED!”</em><br /><br />Dowd and Eurell ran the most powerful gang in New York’s dangerous 75th Precinct, the crack cocaine capitol of 1980s America. These “ Cocaine Cops” formed a lucrative alliance with Adam Diaz, the kingpin of an ever-expanding Dominican drug cartel. Soon Mike and Ken were buying fancy cars no cop could afford, and treating their wives to levels of luxury not associated with a patrol officer's salary. They Were Daring, Dangerous and Untouchable Until ...Then “ the biggest police scandal in New York history” exploded into the headlines with the arrest of Mike, Ken, and their fellow crooked cops. Released on bail, Mike offered Ken a long shot at escape to Central America—a bizarre plan involving robbery, kidnapping, and murder—forcing Ken to choose between two forms of betrayal. <br /><br /><em>“When you lie, you steal the truth. Once you have stolen the truth, you can justify stealing anything from anybody.”</em><br /><br />Adapted from Ken Eurell's shocking personal memoir, plus hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with the major players, including former international drug lord, Adam Diaz, and Dori Eurell, revealing the truth behind what you won't see in the hit documentary THE SEVEN FIVE. Edgar Award winner Burl Barer once again teams with award-winning journalist Frank C. Girardot, Jr, and Eurell to bring you an astonishing story of greed and betrayal.

<p><b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER</b><br /><br />“We need a new idea of how to govern. The current system is broken. Law is supposed to be a framework for humans to make choices, not the replacement for free choice.” So notes Philip K. Howard in the new Afterword to his explosive manifesto <i>The Death of Common Sense</i>. Here Howard offers nothing less than a fresh, lucid, practical operating system for modern democracy. America is drowning—in law, lawsuits, and nearly endless red tape. Before acting or making a decision, we often abandon our best instincts. We pause, we worry, we equivocate, and then we divert our energy into trying to protect ourselves. Filled with one too many examples of bureaucratic overreach, <i>The Death of Common Sense</i> demonstrates how we—and our country—can at last get back on track.<br /></p>

SOBRE A IMPORTÂNCIA DO LIVRO PARA O EXAME UNIFICADO<br />O presente livro traz solução completa em matéria de preparação para o Exame da OAB por meio de resolução de questões. Primeiro porque traz todas as questões do Exame Unificado, num total de mais de 3.000. Segundo porque traz mais de 2.000 questões elaboradas pela organizadora do exame, a FGV. <br />Assim, o examinando estuda pelo estilo de questões do Exame de Ordem e também pelo estilo de questões da FGV. Entender os dois estilos é muito importante, pois cada tipo de exame (no caso, o Exame de Ordem) e cada banca examinadora (no caso, a FGV) têm características próprias em relação aos seguintes aspectos: a) maneira de apresentar as perguntas, b) técnicas utilizadas para dificultar a resolução das questões, c) teses jurídicas preferidas, d) tipo de doutrina utilizada e e) temas preferidos, recorrentes e reputados mais importantes. <br />E essa identidade é bem acentuada em se tratando das questões típicas de Exame de Ordem e do estilo de questões da Fundação Getúlio Vargas/FGV. É por isso que a obra é indispensável para você que deseja ser aprovado no Novo Exame de Ordem. A partir da resolução de todas as questões existentes no livro, você entrará em contato com o jeito, as técnicas, as teses jurídicas, a doutrina e os temas preferidos e recorrentes do Exame de Ordem e da nova examinadora, o que, certamente, será decisivo para a sua aprovação.<br /> <br />SOBRE COMO PASSAR NA OAB<br />A experiência diz que aquele que quer ser aprovado deve cumprir três objetivos: a) entender a teoria; b) ler a letra da lei, e c) treinar. A teoria é vista em cursos e livros à disposição do candidato no mercado. O problema é que este, normalmente, para nessa providência. A leitura da lei e o treinamento acabam sendo deixados de lado. E é nesse ponto que está o grande erro. Em média, mais de 90% das questões são respondidas a partir do texto da lei.
Scarlet A: The Ethics, Law, and Politics of Ordinary Abortion

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Although <em>Roe v. Wade</em> identified abortion as a constitutional right 45 years ago, it still bears stigma--a proverbial scarlet A. Millions of Americans have participated in or benefited from an abortion, but few want to reveal that they have done so. Approximately one in five pregnancies in the US ends in abortion. Why is something so common, which has been legal so long, still a source of shame and secrecy? Why is it so regularly debated by politicians, and so seldom divulged from friend to friend? This book explores the personal stigma that prevents many from sharing their abortion experiences with friends and family in private conversation, and the structural stigma that keeps it that way.<br /><br />In public discussion, both proponents and opponents of abortion's legality tend to focus on extraordinary cases. This tendency keeps the national debate polarized and contentious, and keeps our focus on the cases that occur the least. Professor Katie Watson focuses instead on the cases that happen the most, which she calls "ordinary abortion." <em>Scarlet A</em> gives the reflective reader a more accurate impression of what the majority of American abortion practice really looks like. It explains how our silence around private experience has distorted public opinion, and how including both ordinary abortion and abortion ethics could make our public exchanges more fruitful.<br /><br />In <em>Scarlet A</em>, Watson wisely and respectfully navigates one of the most divisive topics in contemporary life. This book explains the law of abortion, challenges the toxic politics that make it a public football and private secret, offers tools for more productive private exchanges, and leads the way to a more robust public discussion of abortion ethics. Scarlet A combines storytelling and statistics to bring the story of ordinary abortion out of the shadows, painting a rich, rarely seen picture of how patients and doctors currently think and act, and ultimately inviting readers to tell their own stories and draw their own conclusions.

In A Summer Swelter: The Charles Manson Murders

Simon Davis is the first truly independent trial lawyer to write about the notorious Manson Family murder spree of 1969. The murders were some of the wildest and most vicious in the annals of crime set against the backdrop of a hazy hippie summer in which flowers and music would fill the air at Woodstock just days after the Tate/LaBianca murders.<br /><br />By analysing the trials, Davis ties up the loose ends of the story, debunks the myths and also reveals the shocking conspiracy hatched by Manson that almost certainly resulted in his three female co-defendants not receiving fair trials.<br /><br />New perspectives are added to the enduring mystery of how young people from average middle-class suburban homes, apparently undisposed to criminality, committed such savage murders.<br /><br />For crime readers, social historians, lawyers and students of legal and criminal history, Davis’ book is the authoritative new account of the Manson Family murders and trials.<br />

Feminist ideology has seeped into every aspect of our society. This book is a sobering true story of tragedy, suicide, and murder directly caused by feminism. It not only chronicles true stories that show feminism's discrimination against men, it's backed by peer-reviewed research. Additionally, it includes investigative journalism that proves feminism was never about equality. The reality is that feminism doesn't just victimize men. It also victimizes women, children, families, and communities.

Oaths cannot be undone; they have no expiration; they are settled upon the altar of your sacrifice of service. America's future rests in the commitment of OATH TAKERS. <br /><br />
