Author: Garth Kant
Pubpsher: WND Books
Miriam Carey became the black life that didn't matter when she was gunned down by elite federal forces in plain view of the entire nation in front of the Capitol in Washington DC. When thugs Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin were shot and killed in self-defense, the nation erupted with cries of racism and demanded justice. When convicted heroin dealer Freddy Gray's neck was broken in the police van, the Black Lives Matter community became enraged to the point of burning down part of Baltimore. So what happens when, after mistakenly turning into a White House entrance, an unarmed mother with toddler in tow is chased by Capitol police who, when catching up to her, open fire on the car, killing the mother and barely missing the child? A riot in the street? A demand to punish the police? A deafening outcry for justice? No. Instead, after twenty-four hours of sensational news coverage characterized by outlandish falsehoods and misinformation, there follows a mysterious silence, with the mainstream media barely covering the event. At least one reporter, however, has stayed on the case with fierce determination to uncover the truth. Capitol Crime follows the dogged investigative reporting of veteran journalist Garth Kant, who after months of probing, questioning and filing FOIA lawsuits, finally put together the shocking pieces of the puzzle. Capitol Crime reveals what really happened that fateful day: * Miriam Carey accidentally entered the White House Guard post; * She did not ram and gates to enter the White House; * She did not violate any laws; * She did not flee but left at a lawful speed; * She was unarmed; * She was chased down; and * She was shot in the back despite having her child in the car. Discover how the Department of Justice and police have seemingly covered up one of the most outrageous injustices perpetrated on a US Citizen in recent history. Revealed for the first time in one place is the timeline of events, the evidence of cover-up, the harassment by investigators, the whistleblower - and the smoking gun. It's time to get to the bottom of this massive cover-up. It's time for justice for Miriam Carey and her family.

“Nik Kane is an old-school gumshoe with classic attributes: former cop, aging but still virile, estranged from family, strong sense of honor, traumatic incident in past, has problems avoiding both the drink and guys with guns. It’s a pleasure to see the archetype done so well.”—The Seattle Times A beautiful young woman is found strangled, lying at the feet of gifted young legislator Matthew Hope. Before this, he was the most promising Alaska Native politician in the state. Now he’s facing serious time and not talking to anyone. In desperation, a mysterious, wealthy patron of Hope’s hires Nik Kane, disgraced ex-cop, to investigate the crime. Hope can’t account for the time leading up to the discovery of him with the body, and forensic evidence doesn’t indicate any other suspects. But the deeper Kane probes, the more he discovers a political culture corrupted by the influence of oil and big money—and a secret so great he may have to pay for it with something more precious than his soul.

Why has America experienced an explosion in crime rates since 1960? Why has the crime rate dropped in recent years? Though politicians are always ready both to take the credit for crime reduction and to exploit grisly headlines for short-term political gain, these questions remain among the most important-and most difficult to answer-in America today. In Crime & Politics, award-winning journalist Ted Gest gives readers the inside story of how crime policy is formulated inside the Washington beltway and state capitols, why we've had cycle after cycle of ineffective federal legislation, and where promising reforms might lead us in the future. Gest examines how politicians first made crime a national rather than a local issue, beginning with Lyndon Johnson's crime commission and the landmark anti-crime law of 1968 and continuing right up to such present-day measures as "three strikes" laws, mandatory sentencing, and community policing. Gest exposes a lack of consistent leadership, backroom partisan politics, and the rush to embrace simplistic solutions as the main causes for why Federal and state crime programs have failed to make our streets safe. But he also explores how the media aid and abet this trend by featuring lurid crimes that simultaneously frighten the public and encourage candidates to offer another round of quick-fix solutions. Drawing on extensive research and including interviews with Edwin Meese, Janet Reno, Joseph Biden, Ted Kennedy, and William Webster, Crime & Politics uncovers the real reasons why America continues to struggle with the crime problem and shows how we do a better job in the future.

The rate of infant deaths at birth in America is much higher for Black infants (over 10,000 a year) than for the rest of the population, and disproportionately concentrated among poor, inner-city blacks. Margaret Boone reveals the dimensions, correlates and causes of Black infant mortality in this important study, based at a major hospital in Washington, D.C. Boone identifies four types of Black women most at risk, and suggests policy changes that would reduce the infant mortality rate - improving prenatal care, changing public health education, building stronger social support networks and improving health care tracking systems.
