569 Comment Circumstantial Evidence: Death, Life, and Justice in a Southern Town

  1. This one is worth seeking out and reading, probably over and over I doubt you ll get the whole story the first time there is just too much to take it This case happened in the same small Alabama town where Harper Lee grew up and where her fictional classic TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD was based thinly disguised That story a case of a false rape accusation against a black man in the Thirties, and the attempts to keep him from being prosecuted, then killed by a lynch mob has absolutely nothing on this on [...]


  2. Peter Barley takes you into a world, I know most of us have no idea about By the time I finished this I felt so angry and sick to my stomach at the bold stupidity that human beings can display, that it took me a while to get over it Once again, don t read this if you don t like hard truth Truth about the side of people that just makes you sick I think what bothered me the most I should say what made me feel the most ashamed as an african american male is the fact that there were black people who [...]


  3. I ve done forgiven the people that lied on me and put me in prison I m not bitter at all What the hell is the truth I ll tell you what it is It is whatever damn well the person listening to you want to hear If it agrees with what they ve been wanting for you to tell em, then, by golly, they say, Oh, Ralph is telling us the truth But if they don t want to hear it, then bingo, Oh, Ralph is a lying to us So what is the truth You tell me.These two quotes from Circumstantial Evidence clearly highligh [...]


  4. I ordered this book after hearing Bryan Stevenson speak in Kenosha He s a lawyer who advocates legally for death row inmates and is featured in this book because he helps the main accused murderer fight his death row sentence because he was wrongly accused The story takes place in Alabama, where defendants are NOT provided legal council if they don t have a way to pay for it I have to say, I didn t know that still went on in America It s just so solidly classist and by extension racist that it s [...]


  5. This true story has so many twists and turns that fiction could never top it I read it on Kindle and had no idea it was over 500 pages when I started I stayed up all night when I was only a few hundred pages in, thinking with each chapter that I was near the end Every time the crime s seemed to be about sewn up, new characters would pop up or someone new would take over the case I ve always been interested in social justice and this is one of the best examples, along with John Grisham s non fict [...]


  6. Highly recommend This true story of racial injustice takes place in small hometown of Harper Lee For years I ve had an article about human rights attorney Bryan Stevenson on my bulletin board at work that discusses his views on To Kill a Mockingbird The article came from this book No spoilers on his opinion or what happens to his client, Walter Johnny D McMillian I started this book and couldn t put it down Five stars And if you haven t seen the TED talk by Bryan please watch.


  7. Good read about a real crime that occurred in the deep south Actually, it was about several crimes 2 murders and one man incorrectly imprisoned for one of the murders.At times, the book was tedious Indeed, the author had no choice as the reporting of this whole scenario took time and patience.It is sad that this occurred in our country in 1986 And maybe still does today Very sad, indeed.


  8. Excellent true crime writingThis one stands out to me as an excellent insight to the legal process in the south After reading Super Casino, I was looking forward to this, and it really delivered


  9. I m actually from Monroeville I went to church with the morrisons though I didn t know who they were at the time I hope the murders are solved because these families deserve justice


  10. The perfect follow up to JUST MERCY What a tangled web we weave So lucky not to have been born black, poor, and in Alabama



  11. A fine read True crime Interesting insight into the possible irreversible injustice of the death penalty in its application.
