About the Author: Burke E. Strunsky works as a senior deputy district attorney in Southern California. He is very passionate about justice. He specializes in homicide cases and crimes against children. In 2009 and 2011 he was named Prosecutor of the year. He has prosecuted defendants in criminal cases that have been featured on national television shows.
The Humanity of Justice is about true crimes. Burke uses stories from real life to show how the justice system works. He takes those stories from his real life as a prosecutor. He makes sure to get down all the right facts, so the real criminals are being convicted. Could you imagine putting the wrong person in prison, and later on finding out they didn’t do the crime. I think it’s very sad because I know people have been put in prison when they didn’t even do anything.
Some of the stories are very intense and even horrifying. One of the beginning stories was about a man killing his wife, and getting away with it. He calls 911 and first says he is reporting a robbery. Awhile later he says he thinks his wife had been killed. Then he says there was a pool of blood around her and he tried to roll her over by her shirt. He never ended up rolling her over or even touching her. Wouldn’t all of this sound odd to you? I would be very suspicious about this already. If something like this happened, the first thing I would do is run up to them and touch them to see if there breathing. He didn’t even touch her.
All these stories about people getting away with all these horrible crimes is unbelievable. I am just amazed at how anyone could get away with anything so horrifying. I love how the author gives examples with real stories. Having real crime stories in the book make it more intense. Makes you really wonder what is going on inside the courtrooms.
