Download and read online Guilty Until Proven Innocent in PDF and EPUB Guilty, Until Proven Innocent, the Letter versus the Spirit of the Law, explains how and why the constitution holds the government to the very high burden of proving guilt "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt!" It unabashedly identifies some of the injustices that routinely occur due to ignorance, mistakes, prejudice, discrimination, gamesmanship, selfish ambitions and other ulterior and improper motives of Police Officers, Judges, Prosecutors and Defense Attorneys. Such injustices include, but are by no means limited to false accusations from alleged victims (who use the criminal justice system as the weapon of choice to get revenge), police misconduct and violations of fundamental constitutional rights by overly aggressive prosecutors who sometimes behave like persecutors. The unfortunate result is often unfair punishment and therefore undeserved suffering. Most importantly, Guilty, Until Proven Innocent takes a practical and sobering look at the vital role criminal defense attorneys play in holding the prosecution to its constitutional duty to prove guilt beyond and to the exclusion of a reasonable doubt. Such proof must be demonstrated before the accused can be legally found guilty by a jury and justly punished by a judge! This book is by no means a hatchet job on the criminal justice system. To the contrary, it particularizes actual cases whereby falsely accused defendants were appropriately and justly found not-guilty by a jury of their peers. Two such cases involved rape allegations whereby majority female juries found the defendants not-guilty! This book was specifically written to open naive eyes to the reality that the justice system is no more perfect than the imperfect people who administer it. If you have never been arrested, issued a criminal citation, accused of having committed wrong doing or a crime, your conscience may be shocked by that which you are about to read. Conversely, if you have been accused of wrong doing or are currently under prosecution for criminality, Guilty, Until Proven Innocent will open your eyes to the reality of the dangers you face, even if you are as innocent as God of that which you have been accused! Please be fully aware that legally speaking, you are "Guilty" if a jury so finds and a judge adjudicates you to be guilty. To the contrary, you are "Not-Guilty, if and when a jury (in a Jury Trial or a judge in a Bench Trial) finds you "Not Guilty!" Under such circumstances, your life is literally in the hands of the lawyer you selected to protect your precious constitutional rights. Finally, Guilty, Until Proven Innocent provides tried and true litigation strategies that have worked in actual felony and misdemeanor cases that were handled between 1986 and 2016. It also contains an Appendix with redacted exhibits that can potentially enhance any criminal defense attorney's jury trial acumen. Albeit this book was written by a seasoned trial attorney with over 30 years of trial court experience, it is written in a reader friendly format that's specifically tailored for those who may not be familiar with the legal profession.

Download and read online Kill All the Lawyers in PDF and EPUB Two-thirds of Shakespeare?s plays have trial scenes, and many deal specifically with lawyers, courts, judges, and points of law. Daniel Kornstein, a practicing attorney, looks at the legal issues and aspects of Shakespeare?s plays and finds fascinating parallels with many legal and social questions of the present day. The Elizabethan age was as litigious as our own, and Shakespeare was very familiar with the language and procedures of the courts. Kill All the Lawyers? examines the ways in which Shakespeare used the law for dramatic effect and incorporated the passion for justice into his great tragedies and comedies and considers the modern legal relevance of his work. ø This is a ground-breaking study in the field of literature and the law, ambitious and suggestive of the value of both our literary and our legal inheritance.

Download and read online When the Letter Betrays the Spirit in PDF and EPUB Drawing from government data, legislative history, Supreme Court decisions, survey results, and the 2006 reauthorization debate, When the Letter Betrays the Spirit examines how executive and judicial discretion facilitates violations of the Voting Rights act. Connecting Johnson to Obama, the book challenges the executive-centered model of leadership and proffers a Congress-centered approach to protecting voting rights. This approach would both satisfy the goals of the black civil rights movement and give fuller support to the Fifteenth Amendment.

Download and read online The Law of the Spirit in PDF and EPUB Paul’s explication of the relationship between the Spirit and Law in Romans 8 has been the subject of protracted scholarly debate. In Romans 7:6 Spirit and Law are set in opposition to each other. However, in Romans 8:4 they appear conjoined, operating in a more harmonious manner. With the use of cognitive dissonance theory, this book proposes that Paul perceived a state of dissonance between covenantal nomism and his post-Damascus cognitions on the Spirit. As a result, he attempts to reduce the qualitative distinction between these two clusters of cognitions by establishing cognitive overlap between them and by striving to achieve social validation for his cognitions within his own fictive family of Roman believers with whom he shared the experience of the Spirit.
Download and read online Montesquieu The Spirit of the Laws in PDF and EPUB The Spirit of the Laws is without question one of the central texts in the history of eighteenth-century thought, yet there has been no complete scholarly English language edition since 1750. This lucid translation renders Montesquieu's problematic text newly accessible to a fresh generation of students, helping them to understand why Montesquieu was such an important figure in the early enlightenment and why The Spirit of the Laws was such an influence on those who framed the American Constitution. Fully annotated, this edition focuses on Montesquieu's use of sources and his text as a whole, rather than on those opening passages toward which critical energies have traditionally been devoted.

Download and read online Practical Theology in PDF and EPUB Saint Thomas Aquinas has been admired throughout the ages for his philosophical brilliance and his theological sanity, but author and professor Peter Kreeft thinks the practical spiritual wisdom of Aquinas is just as amazing. In this book, Kreeft brings together 358 useful, everyday insights from Aquinas' masterpiece the Summa Theologiae. He pairs these easily digestible quotes from the Summa with his own delightfully written commentary in order to answer the kinds of questions real people ask their spiritual directors. These 358 passages from the Summa have helped Kreeft in his own struggles to grow closer to the Lord. His practical, personal, and livable advice is the fruit of his labors to apply the insights of Aquinas to his own quest for sanctity, happiness, and union with God.

Download and read online The Spirit of Laws in PDF and EPUB The Spirit of Laws, first published in 1750, is a detailed treatise on the structures and theory of government by French political philosopher Baron de Montesquieu. Unlike his well-loved Persian Letters, The Spirit of Laws scandalized the French-it was even banned by the Roman Catholic Church. The fact that it is hardly dated to modern readers is a testament to how revolutionary it must have seemed 250 years ago. Among its comparisons of different forms of governments, such as monarchies, despotic regimes, and republics, is the now-famous section on Montesquieu's concept of the separation of powers, dividing the ruling body into legislative, executive, and judicial branches. Also included is the author's thinking on slavery, religion in government, families and censuses, the influence of climate on politics and culture, and the making of laws. A powerful influence on the framers of the U.S. Constitution, this classic work will appeal to history buffs and anyone interested in the roots of modern political theory and government. CHARLES-LOUIS DE SECONDAT, BARON DE MONTESQUIEU (1689-1755), born in the South of France and often known simply as Montesquieu, was a political philosopher and social commentator known for his influential political views, especially for his "separation of power" theory, still used today in constitutions around the world. Some of his best-known work, the satirical Persian Letters, which made fun of life in Paris under Louis XIV, delighted France in the 1720s.
