A Motor Cycle Gang, in Orlando, is brought to the attention of law enforcement, after a gang member is murdered. The case is assigned to Homicide Detectives; Sergeant Jake Jacoby and his partner, Ed Rollins, of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. The investigation brings suspicion that the biker gang is involved in dealing drugs. An Organized Crime Family, from Philadelphia, becomes part of the investigation when they are suspected of being involved in Gambling, Loan Sharking and Money Laundering. The investigation takes another turn when it is discovered, a deputy sheriff is a true family member of this Crime Family. Significant issues are developed, identifying a connection of the two criminal groups. This results in investigators from several different investigative units being brought in to support the Homicide Unit. As a side note, readers will not be able to solve any murders until the investigators do.

The streets and canals of Servenza fill with tension as the war between the gods heats up and the city's ruler prepares for rebellion. As always, ordinary people are caught in the cross-hairs of the powerful. Former street rat Buc has claimed a seat on the board of Kanados Trading Company, strongest of Servenza's trading houses. This is the first step toward Buc's goal: destroying the Gods who make many people's lives miserable. If that also means taking down Servenza's government and ruining the lives of the wealthy and powerful, well, there's nothing wrong with that that Buc can see. Standing in Buc's way are Servenza's ruler and her mysterious ally, the murderous Sicarii, who are fomenting revolution. Sicarii has concealed a much more personal mission. She seeks Buc's destruction. As the gods and their worshippers search for a missing artifact that holds the key to unending power and people disappear from the streets of Servenza in ever-increasing numbers, Buc faces her enemies--including one who lives inside her own mind--in a fight for her sanity and her life.

Getting Even

"In Getting Even, Charles Barton contends that revenge can be a form of justice that is constructive and healing for our society.

Throughout most early cultures, the first form of justice was revenge. When a wrong occurred, revenge was an acceptable, even encouraged way to find redress. However, contemporary Western society condemns revenge both legally and socially. There are still penalties for taking the law into your own hands. In Getting Even, Charles K. B. Barton challenges the notion that revenge is always wrong. He argues that revenge is personal retribution and that, like any other form of punishment, it can be both just and unjust. Framing the issue in the broadest context as a way to address the needs of victim, offender, and society, he offers a blueprint for improving the justice system and attaining a true resolution to crime. Barton makes a compelling case for implementing institutionalized revenge as a way of allowing victims to attain adequate material restitution, apology, and justice.

This book addresses the role of victims in our criminal justice system and the shortcomings they perceive in the way they are treated. It examines whether restorative justice can offer them more justice than they receive from the formal court-based system.Research into the shortcomings of the court-based system has identified a number of issues that victims want to address. In brief, they want a less formal process where their views count, more information about both the processing and the outcome of their case, a greater opportunity forparticipation in the way their case is dealt with, fairer and more respectful treatment, and emotional as well as material restoration as an outcome. Over the past three decades, the victim movement worldwide has agitated for an enhanced role for victims in criminal justice. Despite some successes,it appears that structural as well as political factors may mean that victims have won as much as they are likely to gain from formal justice.A series of randomized controlled trials in Canberra, known as the Reintegrative Shaming Experiments (RISE), has provided an opportunity to compare rigorously the impact on victims of court-based justice with a restorative justice program known as conferencing. In these experiments, middle-rangeproperty and violent offences committed by young offenders were assigned either to court (as they would normally have been treated) or to a conference.Empirical evidence from RISE examined in this book suggests that the restorative alternative of conferencing more often than court has the capacity to give victims what they say they want in achieving meaningful victim participation and restoration, especially emotional restoration.

Revenge Is Not Justice tells a story of relationships torn apart by lust and greed-emotions that blind reason. While on an early morning run, Santa Fe police detective Clay Bryce is struck by a driver in a hit-and-run attempt on his life. A Bible verse scrawled on his hall mirror hints at revenge as the motive, but the suspect could be any one of the dozens of criminals he has faced over the years. Circumstantial evidence points to John Grainger, former executive of the Indian Bend Casino, charged a year earlier in a felony sex case. But Grainger has an alibi-he claims he was with the beautiful Arianna Arrington, the scheming trophy wife and heir apparent of billionaire Hayden Arrington. When Hank Kincaid, the Assistant District Attorney who worked with Clay on Grainger's Indian Bend case is also targeted, Clay's hit-and-run investigation spirals into a tangle of assaults and murders.

A primary or secondary text for criminal justice, criminology, constitutional law, and related social science and legal studies, this book is for those who believe they know all they need to know about the criminal justice system — the system that keeps us safe from criminals; the system that protects its good, law-abiding citizens. Told in two sections, the first a first-person perspective of a victim’s husband, American Justice is a true story that provides an up close and personal look at the American justice system and how easy it is to become a victim of the system. The focus within this book is more than the victims’ stories — it is a crucial and critical examination of how things can go very wrong, especially when one does not adequately understand the laws that are supposed to protect them. Paul Brakke and his wife Carol believed that obeying the law and telling the truth was good enough. They believed that truth would indeed prevail. They were wrong. Paul and Carol Brakke’s nightmare began when some local kids falsely accused Carol of trying to run one of them over. The kids didn’t like her interfering with their play at a dangerous intersection. Based on this false accusation and additional lies by neighbors who wanted to get the Brakkes out of the neighborhood, Carol was subjected to psychological warfare, which included an involuntary commitment to a psych ward, two psychological evaluations, exile from her home, delays in setting a trial date, and the threat of a 16-year jail term. These circumstances forced the Brakkes to agree to move out of their home to another community as part of a plea bargain in which all charges relating to aggravated assault were dropped. This book describes Carol and Paul’s harrowing experience, followed by Paul’s discussion of problems in the criminal justice system and recommendations on what to do to resolve those problems. As the second section of this book points out, much can go wrong in legal cases. As such, it is vital to educate yourself about the U.S. criminal justice system to prevent becoming a victim and to improve the system to make ours a better country and a more just society.

Nietzsche s Psychology of Ressentiment

Page: 180

View: 560

Ressentiment—the hateful desire for revenge—plays a pivotal role in Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals. Ressentiment explains the formation of bad conscience, guilt, asceticism, and, most importantly, it motivates the "slave revolt" that gives rise to Western morality’s values. Ressentiment, however, has not enjoyed a thorough treatment in the secondary literature. This book brings it sharply into focus and provides the first detailed examination of Nietzsche’s psychology of ressentiment. Unlike other books on the Genealogy, it uses ressentiment as a key to the Genealogy and focuses on the intriguing relationship between ressentiment and justice. It shows how ressentiment, despite its blindness to justice, gives rise to moral justice—the central target of Nietzsche’s critique. This critique notwithstanding, the Genealogy shows Nietzsche’s enduring commitment to the virtue of non-moral justice: a commitment that grounds his provocative view that moral justice spells the ‘end of justice’. The result provides a novel view of Nietzsche's moral psychology in the Genealogy, his critique of morality, and his views on justice.

This book is the first in-depth examination of revenge in the Odyssey. The principal revenge plot of the Odyssey --Odysseus' surprise return to Ithaca after twenty away and his vengeance on Penelope's suitors -- is the act for which he is most celebrated. This story forms the backbone of the Odyssey. But is Odysseus' triumph over the suitors as univocally celebratory as is often assumed? Does the poem contain and even suggest other, darker interpretations of Odysseus' greatest achievement? This book offers a careful analysis of several other revenge plots in the Odyssey -- those of Orestes, Poseidon, Zeus, and the suitors' relatives. It shows how these revenge stories color one another with allusions (explicit and implicit) that connect them and invite audiences to interpret them in light of one another. These stories -- especially Odysseus' revenge upon the suitors -- inevitably turn out to have multiple meanings. One plot of revenge slips into another as the offender in one story becomes a victim to be avenged in the next. As a result, Odysseus turns out to be a much more ambivalent hero than has been commonly accepted. And in the Odyssey's portrayal, revenge is an unstable foundation for a community. Revenge also ends up being a tenuous narrative structure for an epic poem, as a natural end to cycles of vengeance proves elusive. This book offers a radical new reading of the seemingly happy ending of the poem.
