Book Description

Are criminals who have been convicted of murder really being released back into society to live among us? 

WARNING: The cases profiled in this thought provoking book will both disturb and anger you.

Recidivism, as defined in psychiatry journals, is the chronic tendency to repeat anti-social or criminal behavior patterns. Prison systems, in part, are intended to rehabilitate the criminal so these same behavior patterns will not be repeated.

However, when an individual commits the most serious of crimes - murder - and then they're convicted of that crime, most receive life in prison or the death penalty.  So, how is it that the criminal justice system is failing so horribly and releasing them after committing such violence in society? 

RELEASED TO KILL AGAIN  is the 4th book in the True Crime Series by John Summit.

In this book, he reveals the shocking true crime and murder stories of 7 convicted criminals who not only killed once, but were paroled.........only to kill again.

2.0 out of 5 stars should be longer January 22, 2013
By Tess
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This an interesting book. It illustrates one of the many flaws in our judicial system. I chose this book because the man who murdered two of my cousins killed again within a year of his release. I would have liked to read about the reactions of the parole boards or judges who released these killers back into society. Do any of them feel guilty over releasing murderers that kill again? I would like to have read more about the reactions of the friends and family of the victims of these killers. I think the book was good in making people more aware of the problems with our judicial system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad but true February 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit that this book is very well understood. There are a few typos but the stories are sadly interesting. I think most of already know how poorly our judicial system works but to compile a few examples into one book should get people to thinking, we really need to change some laws and bring back the death penalty and utilize it. If there is little or no punishment for the crime than what it this point of "law"?

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed look at killers who kill again and again January 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book, a free promotion for Amazon Kindle, provides a detailed look at legal systems throughout the world and how they very occasionally fail. The subjects profiled here are killers, and one has racked up a body count of over 300 in South America. You will feel outrage at how these killers seemingly get away with murder (multiple times, in some cases), and you will begin asking yourself how these problems can be fixed. There's no simple answer. This book could stand alongside Ann Rule's true crime stories anyday.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction to Killers January 20, 2013
By ajmvp
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book provides details 7 murderers who were released from prison to re-offend. It is very interesting and comprehensive. The subject matter is predictably disturbing, but the author does a good job of making it an entertaining and fast read. It is clear the author emotionally connects with the victims and with their families - his writing conveys deep empathy, concern, and sometimes outrage. This adds a humanistic element to the shocking content, and is arguably what makes the stories easier to read. While this book is not intended for students of criminal justice, it is a great place to start for those who are interested in crime stories/reads, or who find crime shows interesting and are looking for more information (and these stories are true!).

5.0 out of 5 stars unbelievable February 13, 2013
By Angie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am sickened by these stories. I can not believe our judicial system would/could release such monsters back in the public knowing the risks of them recommiting the same type of crimes and sometimes worse crimes. Such a sad sad world we live in. I am ashamed of our judicial system and only hope and pray it gets better for our childrens sakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A frightening read January 26, 2013
By Red Ink
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I use a public transit system, and looking over my shoulders is pretty standard, but after this book, I do it twice as much!

This book is a chilling look at some of the mistakes made by a justice system designed to protect us. The scariest part of the whole book: it's all true.

Great book. Goes to show we need to rethink the parole system. It was a real eye opener. What about victims rights. More books like this needs to be written. Talk about a wake up call.
