9780394725314: No Heroes, No Villains: The Story of a Murder Trial

On June 28, 1972 in a South Bronx subway station, John Skagen, a white off-duty policeman on his way home, suddenly and without apparent provocation, ordered James Richardson, a black man on his way to work, to get against the wall and put his hands up. Richardson had a gun, and the two exchanged shots. In the melee that followed, Skagen was fatally wounded by a cop who rushed to the scene. In the ensuing trial, William Kunstler handled Richardson's defense and the author of this book, then assistant district attorney, prosecuted the case. Here is a first-hand, behind-the-scenes account of every step of the proceedings.

Mr. Phillips lives in New York City with his wife and daughter.

Review:

"Sober and straightforward, and instructive in the way that Anthony Lewis was in Gideon's Trumpet."- The New York Times Book Review
