This hard-hitting look at crime, criminals, the judicial process and the prison system offers startling and controversial conclusions. Tucker maintains that the courts have become the private preserve of judges and lawyers, who wish in essence that the public would stay away from their business. He argues that the appeals system is structured to favor defendants, i.e., an innocent verdict cannot be appealed, but a guilty one can. Moving to more explosive topics, he maintains that young black males commit crimes out of proportion to their numbershe attributes this to the breakdown of the black family because of the welfare system. From blasts at the exclusionary rule to a plea for increased application of the death penalty, Tucker (Progress and Privilege) takes stands that will surely be talked about. November
