Murder in McComb (eBook, ePUB)
29,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What remained of the badly decomposed body of twelve­-year­-old Tina Marie Andrews was discovered underneath a discarded sofa in the woods outside of McComb, Mississippi, on August 23, 1969. Ten days earlier, Andrews and a friend had accepted a ride home after leaving the Tiger's Den, a local teenage hangout, but they were driven instead to the remote area where Andrews was eventually murdered. Although eyewitness testimony pointed to two local police officers, no one was ever convicted of this brutal crime, and to this day the case remains officially unsolved. Contemporary local newspaper coverage notwithstanding, the story of Andrews's murder has not been told. Indeed, many people in the McComb community still, more than fifty years later, hesitate to speak of the tragedy. Trent Brown's Murder in McComb is the first comprehensive examination of this case, the lengthy investigation into it, and the two extended trials that followed. Brown also explores the public shaming of the state's main witness, a fifteen-year-old unwed mother, and the subsequent desecration of Andrews's grave. Set against the uneasy backdrop of the civil rights movement, Brown's study deftly reconstructs various accounts of the murder, explains why the juries reached the verdicts they did, and explores the broader forces that shaped the community in which Andrews lived and died. Unlike so many other accounts of violence in the Jim Crow South, racial animus was not the driving force behind Andrews's murder; in fact, most of the individuals central to the case, from the sheriff to the judges to the victim, were white. Yet Andrews, as well as her friend Billie Jo Lambert, the state's key witness, were "girls of ill repute," as one defense attorney put it. To many people in McComb, Tina and Billie Jo were "trashy" children whose circumstances reflected their families' low socioeconomic standing. In the end, Brown suggests that Tina Andrews had the great misfortune to be murdered in a town where the locals were overly eager to support law, order, and stability-instead of true justice-amid the tense and uncertain times during and after the civil rights movement.

Michael Brown Okinawa Assault Incident

The Michael Brown Okinawa assault incident arose from an attempted indecent assault by U.S. Marine Corps Major Michael Brown on a Filipina bartender, Victoria Nakamine, in Okinawa, Japan on November 2, 2002. The case received extensive attention in the Japanese media, especially on Okinawa, and the crime sparked a public debate over the U.S. military presence in Japan, the fairness of the Japanese legal system, and the practices of the Japanese police. The case involved the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan and the U.S.-Japan Status of Forces Agreement, the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) between Japan and the United States. On July 8, 2004, after a 19-month trial, Brown was convicted by a Japanese court of attempted indecent assault and destruction of private property and received a one-year suspended prison sentence. Based on this incident and others involving crimes committed by U.S

Status of Forces Agreement
34,00 € *

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) is an agreement between a country and a foreign nation stationing military forces in that country. While the United States military has the largest foreign presence and therefore accounts for most SOFAs, the United Kingdom, France, Australia, Germany, Italy, Russia, South Korea, and many other nations also station troops abroad and negotiate SOFAs with their host countries. In the past, the Soviet Union had SOFAs with most of its satellite states. While most of the United States' SOFAs are public, some remain classified. The SOFA is intended to clarify the terms under which the foreign military is allowed to operate. Typically, purely military issues such as the locations of bases and access to facilities are covered by separate agreements. The SOFA is more concerned with the legal issues associated with military individuals and property. This may include issues like entry and exit into the country, tax liabilities, postal services, or employment terms for host-country nationals, but the most contentious issues are civil and criminal jurisdiction over the bases.

The Church of Armes of the Light has battled the forces of Darkness for as long as anyone can remember. The great prophecy has foretold that a band of misfits, led by a high priestess will defeat the Dark Lord Darvezian, armed with their wits, the blessing of the Light and an artifact stolen from the merciless Spider Queen. Their journey will be long, hard and fraught with danger. Allies will become enemies; enemies will become allies. And the Dark Lord will be waiting, always waiting... Spiderlight is an exhilarating fantasy quest from Adrian Tchaikovsky, the author of Guns at Dawn and the Shadows of the Apt series. Reviews and quotes 'Spiderlight is a creepy-crawly treat from the master of non-human heroes, a joy from beginning to end.' - Paul Cornell, author of Witches of Lychford and The Severed Streets '[Spiderlight] is a master class in subverting our expectations to surprise, engage, and deliver a fantastic story that works even when it isn't pulling the rug out from under us.' - Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog 'Tchaikovsky clearly has a great deal of talent, and a real handle on the fantasy genre, with the ability to splice in different influences almost seamlessly.' -SciFi Now Magazine 'Occasionally a fantasy author comes up with a way to break the mould of traditional genre tropes: M. John Harrison'sViriconium and China Mieville's Perdido Street Station are two examples that immediately spring to mind. Tchaikovsky looks like a new addition to that select hall of fame.' -Death Ray Magazine 'Working in a small space, Tchaikovsky gives us sympathetic characters, real moral dilemmas, and emotional depth, all shot through with a sly humor that kept me grinning throughout. If, like me, you're a D&D fan who always wondered about the ethics of Detect Evil or what the orcs eat in Mordor, you will love this one.' - Django Wexler, author of the Shadow Campaigns series 'Subversive and classic, Spiderlight is a timeless adventure cranked up for the modern era of readers. A warship-rocker of an adventure, Adrian Tchaikovsky has struck another literary goldmine that's perfect for readers to dive into. Gripping and highly recommended.' - Jeremy Szal, Starship Sofa 'Spiderlight is a rip-roaring, old-fashioned heroic fantasy romp that also messes playfully with some of the genre's more outdated conventions... a breathless rush that never outstays its welcome.' - Dirge Mag 'Spiderlight will take you on a ride directly through straight fantasy and into the realms of the really fantastic... a brilliantly original novel.' - Geek Syndicate 'A must-read for all fans of fantasy. Very highly recommended.' - Civilian Reader 'In a world of large epic fantasy series with mushy pacing and a lack of focus, Spiderlight is as sharp as a spider's fang, as tight as its webbing, and as multifaceted as its gaze.' - Skiffy & Fanty 'A very fun, creepy quest tale with some quirky and engaging adventurers.' - Bull Spec At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
