About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
We now know, based on forensics, bystander testimony, grand jury and US Justice Department investigations, that all the initial assumptions were wrong, that the rush to judgment by the news media, White House, Justice Department and Civil Rights organizations was based on lies. Author Ken Dye, a former homicide detective in the St. Louis County Police Department, has done a masterful job of detailing the truth. All the evidence is in his book--forensics, eyewitness testimony, statements and reports. Bottom line: Michael Brown robbed a convenience store and attacked Officer Wilson.
And yet, in spite of all this evidence, the name Ferguson is still used as a rallying cry for those who want to believe the men in blue is the enemy. Worse, we have yet to hear apologies from reporters, the White House or the Justice Department for perpetuating this lie. Shame on all them for jumping to conclusions before the evidence was in. Shame on them for destroying the reputation of an honest cop. And thanks to Ken Dye for setting the record straight!
I often wonder when did the news turned into a rating game instead of dispatching the news. We routinely listen to analysis of videos of events and hear opinions from the celebrity journalist. What happened? Did Americans suddenly turn into zero-thinking sheep who need to be led to follow the loudest person’s opinion?
So, what choice do we have? Whom should we believe? Most of us cannot go and sit in court to listen to the evidence or pay for hundreds of transcripts to make our own decisions. I say no way; I am not going to listen to the loudest bully on the television. Thanks to author, Ken Dye, we have a choice. His book, Michael Brown, Jr. – didn’t have to die, gave actual excerpts of testimonies given in court, showed test reports on gunpowder residue, revealed transcripts of interviews from eyewitness. Eyewitness who were proven right and wrong by evidence that followed.
As the reader, I did know the author’s opinion? Yes, but only by the occasional comment inserted here and there. The author never forced his opinion on the reader by only giving a one-sided report. He presented the actually news reports and quoted the real words spoken at the press conferences with the dates so you could check it out for yourself. Whether the author agreed with what was said or not, he reported it. In fact, for me, the author’s occasional comments added interest and some zing to the reading. The author took the drudgery out of sieving through hundreds and hundreds of reports and transcripts so I could have answers many questions. Pages of facts to fill in the holes that the evening news left gaping open.Read more ›
