Friday October 20- Norm Stampler (Seattle Chief of Police Retired) -To Protect and Serve: How to Fix America’s Police

American policing is in crisis. The last decade witnessed a vast increase in police aggression, misconduct, and militarization, along with a corresponding reduction in transparency and accountability. Nowhere is this more noticeable and painful than in African American and other ethnic minority communities. Racism – from raw, individualized versions to insidious systemic examples – appears to be on the rise in our police departments. Overall, our police officers have grown more and more alienated from the people they’ve been hired to serve. In To Protect and Serve, Norm Stamper offers new insights into the conditions that have created this crisis, reminding us that police in a democratic society belong to the people – and not the other way around.

To Protect and Serve also delivers a revolutionary new model for American law enforcement: the community-based police department. It calls for citizen participation in all aspects of police operations: policymaking, program development, crime fighting and service delivery, entry-level and ongoing education and training, oversight of police conduct, and, especially relevant to today’s challenges, joint community-police crisis management. Nothing will ever change until the system itself is radically restructured, and here Norm Stamper

Friday November 10 – Judyth Vary Baker 

The new book, KENNEDY & OSWALD: THE BIG PICTURE, focuses on what created the plots against Kennedy, from their historic roots, right up to the involvement of Ruth and Michael Paine in setting up Oswald to betrayal by his own CIA to take the blame for Kennedy’s murder

Judyth Vary Baker, a former cancer researcher, is now a writer, artist, poet and forensic/cultural anthropologist. Once the lover of Lee Harvey Oswald, she exposes the truth about Oswald and leads the battle for his vindication. Her books include Me & Lee: How I came to know, love and lose Lee Harvey Oswald, David Ferrie: Mafia Pilot, Letters to the Cyborgs (AI), and Kennedy and Oswald: the Big Picture (with Edward Schwartz). As a whistleblower, Judyth has been forced to live in exile, moving every 90 days in and then out of the EU, ever since September, 2007 when Edward Haslam’s book Dr. Mary’s Monkey was released, creating death threats that forced her to seek political asylum (denied because American citizens are theoretically in no danger from their government). She deeply appreciates those who partner with her in her crusade!

Friday November 24- H.H. Holmes is Jack the Ripper? Jeff Mudgett

In the late 1800s, a horrific serial killer terrorized Chicago through his elaborate maze of death traps built into a massive three-story hotel that took up the entire block of 63rd and Wallace streets. H.H. Holmes (born Herman Webster Mudgett) is an infamous fixture in American history. He confessed to killing 27 people in his “Murder Castle” as it became known, although many believe his victims amount to more than 200. He was always fascinated by death—he mutilated animals, stole corpses, and eventually seduced and murdered numerous women to satisfy his sadistic urges and to claim insurance monies. He is known as “America’s First Serial Killer” but some believe that America was not his only hunting ground.

London, perhaps, was also the site of Holmes’ killings. In the late 1800s, a murderer lurked the slums in and around the Whitechapel district of London in 1888 killing women and mutilating their bodies. The murderer received the moniker “Jack the Ripper” and the legend of his killings has been fully solidified in history and in media. Beyond the brutal nature of his murders, part of the fascination with Jack the Ripper is his unknown identity. “Ripperologists” have generated hundreds of theories to try to identify this murderer. However, one theory is currently louder than all the others.

Friday December 1 – The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle: A Journey into Madness & Mayhem- Daniel Friedman MD

In the spring of 1905, members of an exclusive club of crime enthusiasts known as Our Society were taken on a guided excursion through Whitechapel, one of London’s most notorious districts, by Dr. Frederick Gordon Brown, the chief police surgeon for the City of London. But this was no ordinary sightseeing tour. The focus of the outing was Jack the Ripper’s reputed murder sites, and among the guests that day was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the world’s greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes.

Here, now, in The Strange Case of Dr. Doyle by first-time son/father writing team Daniel Friedman, MD, and Eugene Friedman, MD, you are cordially invited to join a recreation of that tour. This expedition, however, will differ from the original in one very important way: It will be led by celebrated author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself. As you stroll beside Doyle and his other guests, you will travel to the location of each of the five canonical Ripper murders. Thanks to your guide’s observations and opinions, all of which are based on actual historical accounts, you will learn as much about the district of Whitechapel as you will the terrible Ripper killings that occurred there

 

Friday December 8 – Ann Marie Ackermann – Death of an Assassin: The True Story of the German Murderer Who Died Defending Robert E. Lee

From the depths of German and American archives comes a story one soldier never wanted told. The first volunteer killed defending Robert E. Lee s position in battle was really a German assassin. After fleeing to the United States to escape prosecution for murder, the assassin enlisted in a German company of the Pennsylvania Volunteers in the Mexican-American War and died defending Lee s battery at the Siege of Veracruz in 1847. Lee wrote a letter home, praising this unnamed fallen volunteer defender. Military records identify him, but none of the Americans knew about his past life of crime.

Before fighting with the Americans, Lee s defender had assassinated Johann Heinrich Rieber, mayor of Bönnigheim, Germany, in 1835. Rieber s assassination became 19th-century Germany s coldest case ever solved by a non law enforcement professional and the only 19th-century German murder ever solved in the United States. Thirty-seven years later, another suspect in the assassination who had also fled to America found evidence in Washington, D.C., that would clear his own name, and he forwarded it to Germany. The German prosecutor Ernst von Hochstetter corroborated the story and closed the case file in 1872, naming Lee s defender as Rieber s murderer.

Friday December 15 – J.T. Hunter – Death Row Romeo: The True Story of Serial Killer Oscar Ray Bolin

Friday December 22 – Christmas Show with Jeff Belanger 

Jeff Belanger is hear to tell us the truth behind all of the stories we’ve heard about in Christmas.

Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed most commonly on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world. A feast central to the Christian liturgical year, it is prepared for by the season of Advent or the Nativity Fast and initiates the season of Christmastide, which historically in the West lasts twelve days and culminates on Twelfth Night; in some traditions, Christmastide includes an Octave.The traditional Christmas narrative, the Nativity of Jesus, delineated in the New Testament says that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, in accordance with messianic prophecies; when Joseph and Mary arrived in the city, the inn had no room and so they were offered a stable where the Christ Child was soon born, with angels proclaiming this news to shepherds who then disseminated the message furthermore. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world’s nations, is celebrated religiously by the vast majority of Christians,as well as culturally by a number of non-Christian people, and is an integral part of the holiday season, while some Christian groups reject the celebration. In several countries, celebrating Christmas Eve on December 24 has the main focus rather than December 25, with gift-giving and sharing a traditional meal with the family.

History, belief, and folklore combine to create paranormal legends that challenge what we know about how the universe works. But are these legends more than just stories? What can we learn about ourselves in exploring the unexplained? Meet Jeff Belanger, the ultimate paranormal insider, and the Emmy-nominated host, writer, and producer of the New England Legends series on PBS

Friday December 29- John Wayne Gacy: Defending a Monster – Sam L. Amirante & Danny Broderick

“Sam, could you do me a favor?” Thus begins a story that has now become part of America’s true crime hall of fame. It is a gory, grotesque tale befitting a Stephen King novel. It is also a David and Goliath saga—the story of a young lawyer fresh from the Public Defender’s Office whose first client in private practice turns out to be the worst serial killer in our nation’s history.

Sam Amirante had just opened his first law practice when he got a phone call from his friend John Wayne Gacy, a well-known and well-liked community figure. Gacy was upset about what he called “police harassment” and asked Amirante for help. With the police following his every move in connection with the disappearance of a local teenager, Gacy eventually gave a drunken, dramatic, early morning confession—to his new lawyer. Gacy was eventually charged with murder and Amirante suddenly became the defense attorney for one of American’s most disturbing serial killers. It was his first case.

This new edition of John Wayne Gacy, which contains updated material about the case that has come to light since the book’s original publication, recounts the gruesome killings and the famous trial that shocked a nation.
