Frequently it is said that ours is a nation of law. Laws. A high sounding nostrum. Any semantical test would require a restatement. Ours is a national of legal vindettas aimed at the 50% or more Americans who have access to a mere 2.5% of the American Pie. In other words, the poor. The Law is punitive. Period.

My three books chronicle the emotions and the true story of one such family who fought the good fight , The modern struggle pitting the individual versus his society..A damn good read I might say writ with honesty and honor .
