This story is about two women who loved the same man: Sam. His undeniable charm and kind gestures made them fall in love with him, but unfortunately, he later became their biggest mistake. Sam was an ordinary man with an extraordinary sense of crime, and he knew how to play with lives. As a young man, he was really handsome with a lean build. As soon as Macy was introduced to him, she just fell for him, and frequent meetings continued. During their meetings, Sam confided in Macy and told her about the abuse he suffered as a teenager and how the gruesome abuse affected his mental health, but he made sure that Macy knew that he was totally fine and eligible to marry her. Her mind said something else, but her heart was totally filled with Sams love, and living without him for even a second felt like years. She decided to talk to her dad about their marriage. As a protective father, he put a lot of thought into this big decision and finally agreed upon the proposal, which meant that the first step to Sams master plan was successful. He was not deeply in love with Macy, but he rather fell for the money offered in this relationship. He was very greedy and selfish and didnt make any true commitments. He joined the business and was soon made the CEO of the company while Mr Anderson blindly trusted him for everything and came to the company for random visits. But one fateful evening, he was gruesomely murdered by none other than Sam. Unfortunately, the police was too late to stop this from happening, so Sam happily lived with his wife, Macy, who now had the power and property in her hands. Sam devised a plan to destroy her completely and flee to Melbourne where he lived a posh life and impressed another woman, Helena. This time, he just wanted to play with lives and scar them slowly and steadilyhis old disgusting pleasure. Everything was going smoothly until Chloe knocked on Sams door and became his ultimate dream. She was bold, sexy, and professional. What could attract his senses more? Now he had a mission, and it was to destroy Helenas life. He began by having an affair with Chloe and started abusing Jenny, Jack, and Anna every day for about a month, which scarred their lives forever. Jenny finally opened up, and her mother was on the hunt for clues when she met Chloe, Sams biggest mistake from the past. Mysteries began unfolding, and they got together with the most hardworking officers and embarked on a journey of justice and hope.

A private investigator is as much as professional as a lawyer, a teacher, or a police officer. Private investigation is an occupation that is essential but frequently misunderstood. Most people already have a distorted view of private investigators. Some view them as glamorous individuals living on the edge, while others view them as individuals with poor judgment and bad reputations. The average investigator is neither; he or she is simply a professional who conducts businesses in a well-informed and methodical manner.

Determined to be a U.S. Marine Corps officer, Bruce Yamashita enrolled in Officer Candidate School, where he was the target of persistent racial harassment by officers and staff. After enduring nine weeks of emotional and physical abuse, Yamashita was disenrolled in April 1989 kicked out of the Marine Corps because of the color of his skin. Fighting Tradition is Yamashita s own story of his courageous struggle to expose a pattern of racial discrimination against minorities that has existed at various levels of the Corps. With the support of a broad coalition of community and civil rights organizations, the Hawaii-born law school graduate fought a five-year-long legal, political, and media battle against the military establishment that ended in his commissioning as a captain and the revision of Marine Corps policies and procedures. Fighting Tradition not only is a moving story of personal sacrifice and vision, but contributes also both directly and indirectly to our understanding of the complexities of institutional racism in a politically conservative, demographically shifting society. It is a unique window into the dynamics of race, government, and the law and a stirring reminder of the importance of political mobilization by the individual to achieve justice. "

Baz Dreisinger travels behind bars in nine countries to rethink the state of justice in a global context Beginning in Africa and ending in Europe, Incarceration Nations is a first-person odyssey through the prison systems of the world. Professor, journalist, and founder of the Prison-to-College-Pipeline, Dreisinger looks into the human stories of incarcerated men and women and those who imprison them, creating a jarring, poignant view of a world to which most are denied access, and a rethinking of one of America’s most far-reaching global exports: the modern prison complex. From serving as a restorative justice facilitator in a notorious South African prison and working with genocide survivors in Rwanda, to launching a creative writing class in an overcrowded Ugandan prison and coordinating a drama workshop for women prisoners in Thailand, Dreisinger examines the world behind bars with equal parts empathy and intellect. She journeys to Jamaica to visit a prison music program, to Singapore to learn about approaches to prisoner reentry, to Australia to grapple with the bottom line of private prisons, to a federal supermax in Brazil to confront the horrors of solitary confinement, and finally to the so-called model prisons of Norway. Incarceration Nations concludes with climactic lessons about the past, present, and future of justice.

BONUS: This edition contains an A Mighty Long Way discussion guide. When fourteen-year-old Carlotta Walls walked up the stairs of Little Rock Central High School on September 25, 1957, she and eight other black students only wanted to make it to class. But the journey of the “Little Rock Nine,” as they came to be known, would lead the nation on an even longer and much more turbulent path, one that would challenge prevailing attitudes, break down barriers, and forever change the landscape of America. For Carlotta and the eight other children, simply getting through the door of this admired academic institution involved angry mobs, racist elected officials, and intervention by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was forced to send in the 101st Airborne to escort the Nine into the building. But entry was simply the first of many trials. Breaking her silence at last and sharing her story for the first time, Carlotta Walls has written an engrossing memoir that is a testament not only to the power of a single person to make a difference but also to the sacrifices made by families and communities that found themselves a part of history.

A horrific personal account of rape and its consequences. On 25th August 2010 at 6.31 am I was raped by a 20 year old monster. He beat me, kicked me, strangled me and threw me against the walls of my bedroom. My body froze in terror but as he repeatedly raped me and sunk his teeth into my genitals, I somehow found the strength to kick him off . Covered in blood, I ran from this living nightmare as fast as I could, carrying my new puppy. With help from friends, I managed to call the police and report the monster but had to wait a year for the case to get to Crown Court. My physical injuries got better and the scars eventually healed. I had plastic surgery on my face and appeared normal on the outside. However, the events of that day have left me with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder with which I have now learned to live and I say to myself every day; ‘What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger’. I have described the events in graphic detail in this book, not to shock but in the hope it will help the reader understand the issues all victims of rape have to endure. I also hope that it will help politicians and those delivering justice in the courts that issuing lenient sentences does nothing to protect the vulnerable who have to live forever with the consequences while the perpetrators are often allowed to simply get on with their lives.

This is a journal of one victim's road to justice and the lessons she learned along the way. It is a brutally open and honest memoir detailing the author's emotions, thoughts and beliefs during her quest for justice. Laurie has courageously decided to share her journey in the hopes that others can learn and grow from her experience and perhaps even find their own road to justice. This memoir contains a powerful message, which is twofold. First it is an amazing opportunity for Laurie to give a voice to her own, unique experience with trauma and to put into words how these experiences have shaped her life, her career path, her interpersonal relationships and journey towards her own center. Secondly it offers readers, both other trauma survivors and those without similar trauma experiences, the chance to witness the prosecutorial process, lengthy and sometimes frustrating as it may be, and how having the courage and tenacity to keep moving forward can pay off, giving us all the opportunity to see that sexual predators can be held accountable by the legal system for their actions and choices. I feel honored and blessed to count Laurie among my friends and colleagues! - Ruth Richards-Schlarman, LCPC In reading this memoir I truly see how this incident affects the victim not just at the time...but how it affects their whole life. Eye-opening to those of us who haven't gone through this horrible ordeal. - Tammi Rufer

Courage is that rare trait that requires the unusual strength to do what is right - not what is popular in the face of personal harm and at great risk. Susan B. Anthony had the courage to guide thousands of women through that era of U.S. history when women were treated as second-class citizens despite the threats to her personal safety. Her leadership and courage led to the rights for women to have the right to vote. Courage was Harriet Tubman's only friend as she returned to the plantations of the antebellum south to free people who were scared to live and afraid to die. Speaking truth to power and challenging a government infrastructure that thrives on the ignorance and fear of the people require uncommon courage. That same spirit of determination, courage, and conviction is what keep and sustain Cathy Harris as a modern day suffragist for human rights. She has fought and continues to fight for the rights of international travelers, many of whom are African American women, who have been abused and violated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) employees and other federal agencies. Like Susan B. Anthony and Harriet Tubman, Cathy has been despised and persecuted for her ideas and her advocacy. As a U.S. Senior Customs Inspector/Officer, she was threatened by management, unjustly disciplined and ostracized by her peers. Although Cathy has continually bore the consequences of her convictions, she continues to press on by bringing to the public's attention the many ways that U.S. Customs and Border Protections (CBP) officials have violated the human rights of international travelers and their own employees. In 1998, Cathy Harris was instrumental in exposing the racial profiling practices of Customs and Border Protection to Congress and to the public. Legislation was introduced and international travelers have more legal protections and stronger avenues of recourse if abused by U.S. Customs officials. The price Cathy has paid has been great! In the Federal Government too often those who work for the government are the public's first hope of being protected from practices that harm or violate the rights of - we the citizens. Government entities like the U.S. Customs and Border Protection do whatever they can to discredit people of conscious like Cathy Harris who speak out against unethical and immoral practices. We the American public should take a stand and support Cathy Harris and all her efforts in challenging the practices of the federal government especially the Department of Homeland Security.
