<div>Gli attacchi jihadisti di oggi si caratterizzano perché riescono a intrecciare la pianificazione dell’attacco di guerra su grande scala con l’atto emulativo e impulsivo del singolo, l’effetto hollywoodiano iperrealista conferito da sofisticate postproduzioni con oscuri videoclip circolati viralmente sugli smartphone di simpatizzanti e non.</div><br /><div>La <em>war on terror</em> avanza e gli spazi di terrore sono ovunque: a guerra succede guerra senza che si delinei una fine. Il libro ricostruisce l’emergere di reti jihadiste in Medio Oriente e in Europa, gettando luce sui nessi intimi che sostengono le narrazioni di sovranità e terrorismo proprie della contemporaneità. Plasmato fra guerre e regimi repressivi, e amplificato da media e social media, il terrore controlla territori e al tempo stesso si propaga molecolarmente attraverso l’emulazione. Nel contempo, sfidata dalla violenza jihadista e da altri fenomeni transnazionali, la sovranità nazionale adotta risposte autoritarie, in Medio Oriente come in Europa. Ne emerge un paradosso: le premesse liberali dell’ordine internazionale si scardinano, prefigurando l’avvento di una fase postliberale a discapito di multilateralismo e <em>global governance</em>.</div>

Not Just Another Killing in Oakland tells the compelling story of what happened when Gregory Gadlin and Evan Meisner crossed paths--and how that meeting led to Evan's murder.<br /><br />This true crime story, told from a juror's perspective, relates the facts as they unfolded in the courtroom, the lawyers' strategies as they tried the case, and how the jury went about reaching its verdict. David H Fleisig gives you background on the main players, takes you to the crime scene, and lets you hear the testimony of key witnesses and the suspect himself.<br /><br />Straightforward in describing what happened to Evan the early morning of March 31, 2011, and the ensuing trial to bring his alleged killer to justice, Not Just Another Killing in Oakland is ultimately about a tragic loss. Evan Meisner was more than just one of Oakland's 103 murder victims that year. He was someone's friend, someone's brother, and his parents only son.<br /><br />David H Fleisig is a retired civil trial lawyer with 35 years of experience in state and federal courtrooms. He was Juror no. 9 and the jury foreman in the People v Gadlin murder trial.<br />

Extrait : <br />Madame,<br />Peu faite au langage que l’on tient aux Rois, je n’emploierai point l’adulation des Courtisans pour vous faire hommage <br />de cette singulière production. Mon but, Madame, est de vous parler franchement ; je n’ai pas attendu pour m’exprimer <br />ainsi, l’époque de la Liberté ; je me suis montrée avec la même énergie dans un temps où l’aveuglement des Despotes <br />punissait une si noble audace.<br />Lorsque tout l’Empire vous accusait et vous rendait responsable de ses calamités, moi seule, dans un temps de trouble <br />et d’orage, j’ai eu la force de prendre votre défense. Je n’ai jamais pu me persuader qu’une Princesse, élevée au sein <br />des grandeurs, eût tous les vices de la bassesse.

Abstract<br />This paper is the brainchild, conceived from two unpaid public sector internships back to back. It has a creative flair for rules, accountability, and streamlining international policy to use labor and monetary resources as intended. Much like my current career work is written and shaped, this is based on singular open source details, brought together to form a plausible narrative. My theory took life after witnessing first hand, bureaucratic strongholds and egocentric values that have prevented the work so many individuals fight for on behalf of others, from being fully implemented due to a few bad actors in the intricate web that is the United Nations (UN).<br />Let me first start by saying that I fully support the United States (US), and its position on the current state of the UN. The monetary support of the US gives it probable positional clout to use partial defunding, or a full defunding by exit as a catalyst to drive enforcement. As of this time, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) currently has no enforcement authority over enacted resolutions, and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has more focus on keeping international peace while avoiding wars. In turn, each entity within the United Nations is bound by its own policy limitations which is proven by the lackluster results from resolutions that were passed in an effort to prevent and resolve crimes against humanity. <br />My thesis proposes that the UN adopt the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) business model framework, and use the UN integrated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to enable a third-party UN enforcement arm, that will ensure resolution compliance and promote economic security through infrastructure development and policy reform so the marginalized populations of the world are able to rise simultaneously as the elite.<br />My paper is not an attempt to recreate the wheel. It’s taking a fresh approach to generating a synergy among a group of resources not fully aligned before, and leveraging the financial punch already thrown by the US, yet in a different manner. <br /><br />Whether Albert Einstein’s or Benjamin Franklin’s, I would venture to say that the lack of true enforcement in the UN resolution process, is the definition of insanity, or doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. <br /><br />The problem, as some of us see it, is stated clearly here by K.T. Rajasingham: “In fact, the UN HRC has no powers of enforcement. Its resolutions only carry a moral weight, particularly if the target country has cosponsored a resolution. But there is no mechanism for enforcing them. The UN HRC was intended to assist countries to improve their human rights performance not to act a global human rights enforcer.” This is why I think the UN resolution system needs a makeover as money and labor are being wasted to talk a good fight about what’s right, speak in the same circles about what to do for the inhumane treatment of marginalized populations, and yet the results are imbalanced for the amount that is spent. The base foundation is there, but with poor execution.<br /><br />So instead of the US pulling out monetarily it should use this as an opportunity to leverage the other 192 member States of the UN. The States are in reaction mode attempting to find out how they will function when 22% of the UN budget leaves the table. The answer is, it won’t. It would be on a downhill spiral…The way I see it the member States have only one choice (this on the assumption the US heeds my advice). The States must comply with resolutions that are monitored and enforced through a third party and increase individual contributions, or be forced out of this elite inner pay to play circle that has the economic, financial, as well as, military clout to isolate a singular country into non-existence… It is evident to me that the UN is a politically laced structure where it depends on what the severity of the issue is, and which count...
When your Son is Accused of a Sex Offense in Washington State: A ...

A practical guide for parents with a son under the age of 18 who has been accused of a sex offense in Washington State.<br /><br />After I graduated from Duke Law School in 1988, I began my career as an Assistant District Attorney in the Sex Crimes Bureau of the Brooklyn DA’s Office. Four years later I changed jobs and became a Supervisor in the Special Victims Bureau of the Queens DA’s Office. During my years in New York City I handled hundreds of cases involving sex offenses. <br /><br />In 1995, I left New York and moved to Seattle where I started work in the Juvenile Court Unit of the King County Prosecutor’s Office. Because of my background in sex crimes, during my time in “Juvie” I handled all the cases involving sex offenses. I tried many of those cases, and won them all. Much of that had to do with my level of experience. Much of it also had to do with the fact that boys going through the juvenile justice system have the deck stacked against them, especially when they’re being represented by overworked public defenders with limited resources. <br /><br />During my time as a prosecutor, I saw firsthand what happens to boys accused of sex offenses. They are demonized as sexual predators, tried, found guilty, and sent to inadequate state institutions, ostensibly to be “rehabilitated,” after which they are forced to register as sex offenders, sometimes for the rest of their lives. Even as a prosecutor I knew that was an ineffective, cruel and shortsighted way to respond to the problem.<br /><br /><br />When I left the prosecutor’s office and became a criminal defense attorney, I knew I wanted to do something to improve the lives of boys accused of committing sex offenses. I wanted to implement options for them that would give them a future they could actually look forward to living. A future where they’re represented by a qualified attorney at every stage of the process. Where they receive appropriate treatment, if necessary, so they can have normal lives and relationships. Where they don’t re-offend, or get accused of re-offending. A future where their duty to register as a sex offender is lifted as soon as legally possible, and their court records permanently sealed so they can finally have their lives back. <br /><br />That’s why I wrote this book.<br /><br />This book is for parent(s) with a son, under the age of 18, who has been accused of committing a sex offense. In reading it, I hope you will better understand some of the issues and realize, no matter how bad things look right now, there is hope. Do not despair. Your son needs your help right now, and I wrote this book to help you help him. <br /><br />This book should not be used as a substitute for hiring an attorney. It is not a “do-it-yourself manual.” Nor is it a comprehensive list of the many complex issues present in these types of cases. It’s merely a guide to provide hope for a better future. <br />
