9781481849678: And Justice For Some: An Expose of the Lawyers and Judges who Let Dangerous Criminals Go Free

FULLY REVISED EDITION CONTAINING NEVER-BEFORE PUBLISHED FACTS ABOUT THE JONBENET RAMSEY CASE, and much more! In the first book to come out since the bombshell announcement this January that John and Patsy Ramsey were indicted in 1999 in the 1996 death of their six year-old daughter, JonBenet, Wendy J. Murphy, J.D. releases never-before published and disturbing details of the crime. She expounds upon the possible reasons why the grand jury voted to charge the Ramseys and how the couple managed to escape prosecution. Murphy, one of the nation’s leading experts on victims’ rights, followed the Ramsey case closely from the beginning and has provided legal analysis of the case on network and cable television for more than fifteen years. From that fateful day after Christmas in 1996, to the odd circumstances that led to the arrest of John Mark Karr, after he seemingly confessed to the crime ten years later, Murphy provides unprecedented insight into the truth. In one explosive chapter after the next, Murphy pulls the curtain back on many high profile cases and reveals little known dirty tricks that lawyers and judges use in the American legal system to hide the truth and cause victims undue and unnecessary suffering, all in the name of justice. Learn the real reason the jury in the Michael Jackson case voted not guilty, and why Kobe Bryant's case was dismissed before a jury even had a chance to hear the evidence. Find out how O.J. Simpson and William Kennedy Smith used “dog and pony show” tactics to distract jurors from paying attention to the evidence. Bill O’Reilly, from the Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor, shares Murphy’s commitment to justice and fair treatment for crime victims. In his foreword to the book, O’Reilly says that Murphy “uses her pen like a blowtorch” to analyze and scorch all the unscrupulous legal tactics used in the name of the justice. He calls And Justice For Some “her towering achievement.” Hon. Andrew P. Napolitano says the book is a “tour de force” that tells with passion and conviction the tough, harsh tales of the “government breaking its own laws, the courts doling out justice by whim” and “the system blaming the victims.” Dominick Dunne, Author of Justice: Crimes, Trials, and Punishments, praised Murphy’s “fearless television reporting on the JonBenet Ramsey murder” and commended her book for “exposing the injustices of our justice system.”

From AudioFile:

Capturing the essence of righteous indignation, Joyce Bean delivers a clear and ringing narration of this book by former prosecutor and now TV commentator Wendy Murphy. The topic is the justice systems bias towards criminal defendants, to the detriment of victims. The book is a call to action and is filled with anecdotes about judges who dismiss the concerns of victims, and defense attorneys and their clients who lie, misrepresent, and generally subvert the justice system without restraint. Bean personifies the crusader, and in the strong and steady voice of a committed advocate she challenges the listener to be a more discriminating citizen and to take an active role in fixing a broken system.
