Feminist ideology has seeped into every aspect of our society. This book is a sobering true story of tragedy, suicide, and murder directly caused by feminism. It not only chronicles true stories that show feminism's discrimination against men, it's backed by peer-reviewed research. Additionally, it includes investigative journalism that proves feminism was never about equality. The reality is that feminism doesn't just victimize men. It also victimizes women, children, families, and communities.

<b>They Had No Fear Of The Cops Because They <em>Were</em> The Cops</b><br /><br />NYPD officers Mike Dowd and Kenny Eurell knew there were two ways to get rich quick in Brooklyn's Lower East Side. You either became drug dealers, or you robbed drug dealers. They decided to do both. <br /><br /><em>鈥淚 promised my wife that we would make a lot of money, and that she had nothing to worry about. I LIED!鈥?lt;/em><br /><br />Dowd and Eurell ran the most powerful gang in New York鈥檚 dangerous 75th Precinct, the crack cocaine capitol of 1980s America. These 鈥?Cocaine Cops鈥? formed a lucrative alliance with Adam Diaz, the kingpin of an ever-expanding Dominican drug cartel. Soon Mike and Ken were buying fancy cars no cop could afford, and treating their wives to levels of luxury not associated with a patrol officer's salary. They Were Daring, Dangerous and Untouchable Until ...Then 鈥?the biggest police scandal in New York history鈥? exploded into the headlines with the arrest of Mike, Ken, and their fellow crooked cops. Released on bail, Mike offered Ken a long shot at escape to Central America鈥攁 bizarre plan involving robbery, kidnapping, and murder鈥攆orcing Ken to choose between two forms of betrayal. <br /><br /><em>鈥淲hen you lie, you steal the truth.

Wounded Charity offers valuable insights into how charities respond to crises based on information no one else has ever covered: documentation from the charity during and after the crisis, as well as candid discussions and interviews with some former members of the charity鈥檚 board, executive staff, beneficiaries, and even those who generated or published damaging information. On its primary, story-telling level, Wounded Charity investigates the effort to marginalize one of America鈥檚 most vital charities. Its broader level is about what it means for all charities. Wounded Warrior Project is large, important, and effective, and it serves wounded veterans in ways that other charities cannot and that the government does not, and probably never will. This cautionary, provocative narrative describes how WWP came to be so heavily criticized, why much of the criticism was unfounded, why those ultimately in charge of the charity 鈥?the board members 鈥?failed to do their job, and how individuals and the media need to revise their thinking about what works and what doesn鈥檛 work in a sector of our society whose tangible accomplishments, despite steadily increasing philanthropic support, largely remain a mystery. It is also a story of leadership, and the discordancy of punishing, as opposed to rewarding, good ideas and effective management.<br /><br />"Doug White provides an unbiased explanation of the wrongful injury of WWP. Perception is in the eye of the beholder鈥攁nd unfortunately, the vast majority of the beholders were on a search-and-destroy mission to take down Al Giordano and Steve Nardizzi. Regrettably, in doing so they succeeded in afflicting collateral damage to countless wounded warriors and their families. I genuinely wish the new regime of WWP Godspeed and success. They have big shoes to fill." 鈥擩ohn Loosen Former Member of the Board of Wounded Warrior Project<br /><br />鈥淲ounded Charity is a cautionary tale for philanthropists, nonprofit board members, and nonprofit leaders to make sure they make decisions based on the facts, not media hype. Otherwise, the people who end up paying the price are the very people the charity is supposed to help.鈥濃€擩im Knotts President/CEO, Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Former President/CEO, Operation Homefront<br /><br />"False accusations are not new, but they appear to be more and more common today. It's shameful when good people鈥檚 lives are so easily tarnished by the jealousy and ambitions of others. This book sheds light into the great injustice served upon Steve Nardizzi and Al Giordano. Two very good men."鈥擬atthew Modine, Actor and Veterans鈥?Supporter

A significant barrier to successful juvenile intervention is misconduct committed against juveniles by the persons employed to help them. <em>Professional Misconduct with Juveniles</em> explores the nature of employee-on-youth misconduct, its extent, its consequences, factors that increase its occurrence, and potential solutions to the problem. Obviously, employee-on-youth misconduct interferes with the effective treatment of delinquent and at-risk youth, but it also harms the agency as a whole and creates a poor working environment for all employees. <em>Professional Misconduct with Juveniles</em> offers a practical, theory-based approach to preventing or stopping such exploitation of vulnerable young men and women so that we can focus on effective approaches to rehabilitation, deterrence, and public safety.

Why do we consider incest wrong, even when it occurs between consenting adults unable to have children? Why are words that gross us out more likely to be deemed "obscene" and denied the protection of the First Amendment? In a world where a gruesome photograph can decisively influence a jury and homosexual behavior is still condemned by some as "unnatural," it is worth asking: is our legal system really governed by the power of reason? Or do we allow a primitive human emotion, disgust, to guide us in our lawmaking?<br /><br />In <em>Objection</em>, psychologists Debra Lieberman and Carlton Patrick examine disgust and its impact on the legal system to show why the things that we find stomach-turning so often become the things that we render unlawful. Shedding light on the evolutionary and psychological origins of disgust, the authors reveal how ancient human intuitions about what is safe to eat or touch, or who would make an advantageous mate, have become co-opted by moral systems designed to condemn behavior and identify groups of people ripe for marginalization. Over time these moral stances have made their way into legal codes, and disgust has thereby served as the impetus for laws against behaviors almost universally held to be "disgusting" (corpse desecration, bestiality) - and as the implicit justification for more controversial prohibitions (homosexuality, use of pornography). Written with a critical eye on current events, Lieberman and Patrick build a case for a more reasoned approach to lawmaking in a system that often confuses "gross" with "wrong."
