Once a copper, always a copper. At least that’s how it seems for Brian ‘The Skull’ Murphy, long-retired but sought out by a trail of journalists and cops who regularly beat a path to his door. Once known as Australia’s toughest cop, The Skull was both charged with manslaughter (and acquitted), then awarded a Valour Award for bravery in the line of duty. It is these two sides to the complex man that intrigue audiences to this day. A non-drinking, Catholic family man, The Skull didn’t fit the 1950s police mould and often found himself on the outer among his colleagues. Dodging crooks and corruption on both sides of the thin blue line, The Skull carefully cultivated a reputation for being a ‘mad bastard’. Over 40 men felt the sting of his bullets, and many more felt the sting of his fists. But behind Australia’s toughest cop lay a personal secret of sexual abuse which Murphy shares publicly for the first time, in the hope that it will help others. This abuse formed the kind of police officer he later became — tough on the bad guys, but fiercely protective towards victims. With today’s political correctness and strict rules of conduct, there will never be another big personality copper like Brian ‘The Skull’ Murphy. This is his story.
This explosive insider's story reveals what it is really like to be a police officer on the front lines of the war on drugs and discloses the inner workings of law enforcement in America's inner cities.
Includes list of members, 1882-1902 and proceedings of the annual meetings and various supplements.

""Once upon a Time in the Twenty-First Century" is an innovative, inspirational, and unique creative writing textbook/handbook that fills many educational needs and gaps. Designed to appeal to a wide range of readers and writers - from teenagers to young adults, from grade nine through college and beyond - this volume of exercises is of inestimable value to students and teachers in the traditional classroom, a growing number of homeschoolers, others who are served by "distance learning," those who are part of a writing club or group, and independent writers and learners of all ages. The book is based on years of hands-on experiences in the teaching of creative writing in public high schools and after-school writing clubs. The book begins with poet Robin Behn's introduction and is followed by three writing sections: Genres and Forms; Sources and Methods; and Style and Subject. In each section, Behn offers a brief introduction to how to get started and specific ways to develop one's writing, and each introduction is then followed by extensive exercises that draw on classic literature and popular culture, ranging from Flannery O'Connor and Tennessee Williams to Elizabeth Bishop and Gertrude Stein, from Thomas Wolf and Pablo Neruda to Salman Rushdie and Arlo Guthrie. As part of Behn's layered approach to learning, she integrates within the exercises apt examples of student writings that have emerged from actual use of the exercises in both the classroom and in writing groups. The book concludes with general advice and direction on how to get published"--

Several encyclopedias overview the contemporary system of criminal justice in America, but full understanding of current social problems and contemporary strategies to deal with them can come only with clear appreciation of the historical underpinnings of those problems. Thus, this five-volume work surveys the history and philosophy of crime, punishment, and criminal justice institutions in America from colonial times to the present. It covers the whole of the criminal justice system, from crimes, law enforcement and policing, to courts, corrections and human services. Among other things, this encyclopedia: explicates philosophical foundations underpinning our system of justice; charts changing patterns in criminal activity and subsequent effects on legal responses; identifies major periods in the development of our system of criminal justice; and explores in the first four volumes - supplemented by a fifth volume containing annotated primary documents - evolving debates and conflicts on how best to address issues of crime and punishment. Its signed entries in the first four volumes--supplemented by a fifth volume containing annotated primary documents--provide the historical context for students to better understand contemporary criminological debates and the contemporary shape of the U.S. system of law and justice.
The real world of law enforcement often bears little similarity to the action-packed police dramas depicted on television and in the movies. Many people who are drawn into a career in law enforcement have little knowledge about the trials and tribulations faced by police officers in contemporary society. Author James Warner offers an objective point of view on this crisis in his insightful book 101 Reasons Why You Should Not Become A Cop.With a diverse background including over nineteen years of experience as a police officer, traffic officer, police supervisor, and field-training supervisor, Warner delivers an honest portrayal of the negative aspects of law enforcement. He has spent numerous years collecting true-life experiences from present and retired officers-and from ex-police officers who resigned from the force. Some of the stories include: The Heavy Badge Syndrome Injuries on the Job The Quasi-Military Nature of Law Enforcement Marriage Is a Hobby 101 Reasons Why Not To Become A Cop is a valuable resource for anyone considering a career in law enforcement, as well as a source of humor and comfort for veteran officers.
