Would You Convict? PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Would You Convict? free pdf Judging crimes and meting out punishment has long been an informal national passtime. High-profile crimes invariably prompt endless debate. Confronting this impulse, the author presents as series of unusual episodes that not only challenge the law, but that defy a facile or knee-jerk verdict. Narrating the facts in detached detail, Paul Robinson invites readers to sentence the transgressor (or not), before revealing the final outcome of the case.
