No Peace, No Justice : Press & Prosecution Create a Poisonous Myth an Intelligent Appraisal of the York “riot” Trials
by Maryconway Stewart


Overview - An account of a trial that polarized a small city - a mentally incompetent snitch who derailed a popular mayor - defense attorneys and prosecutors who together supported a mythical murder with no grounding in evidence - white power rallies that never happened - and a local and national media that joined forces with an out of control prosecution and made a circus of the trial. This book is a close examination of the original testimony and evidence and the press role in the period between the convening of the grand jury and the end of the trials - an examination that no one before has attempted. In an epilogue the author suggests ways to prevent such catastrophes from occurring.
