Rape Exposed Why we need to affect change in the Judicial SystemI have to say I was very reluctant to BUY this book I have an aversion to things that make me uncomfortable and the title alone does that for meI bought it anyway and put it on the fast track of my reading listIt s not what I feared or I ve gotten used to ugly things and yet it was extremely informative and in some places the author actually made me laugh or smile in the context of the momentHere is a woman that has done everything within her power to make change to make a difference and has had to fight to do so She s had to fight a system that is archaic a system where prejudice is rampant and openly displayed She s also had to fight the politics of her business and then there s the lawGod bless her to have the gumption to go to work every day to repeatedly face the ugly The scenarios that she s faced the cases that she s fought and won the lives that she s affected and the amount of BS that she s had to endure all the while are nothing short of I couldn t have done it with as much heart as she hadThe legal system is broken for these victims the law IS to blame but so are many of the other pieces that make up that system the collaborators as she so aptly labels them These are the people in and around the system that either discriminate minimize or allow these crimes to go unpunished They include the Judges the Defense or Prosecutors and sometimes the investigatorsWords take on a whole new meaning here What you think may be an open and shut case is anything but How some criminals use the law to their advantage is criminal in and of itself There is no justice in a lot of what goes on it s about bargaining lessening the seriousness of the crimes minimizing the meaning of what really took place as opposed to how counsel would present it to our juries I m not letting the jurors off eitherIt s shameful how business is conducted in our court rooms made all the disgusting by these specific crimes and how it s dealt with to mede out justice This book doesn t provide many answers for me but instead it poses a lot of uestions For me it was an education on of what s wrong with our world I couldn t be disillusioned with the facts of how this great champion of rape victims was treated with the amount of stupidity arrogance and evil that she had to wade through merely to do what is right within the confines that the law provides to these victimsNow I understand why I ve stayed away from politics all of my years The system is corrupt beyond my wildest guesses All in all Ms Vachss my hat is off to you I want to thank you for having the courage to do that job in the manner and under the circumstances with which you did for so long Sometimes the good fight is the best thing you can hope for Exposing it will be helpful and naming the collaborators is a good startI am reminded of some good lawyer jokes but here is one lawyer that is truly out for justice who stands for the truth not just because it s her job but because it s who she isThis is an important book you need to read it for yourself to understand why and you can pick out your own reasons Thank you for writing this book and I hope you continue to expose us to of your world because what you do is important and so the right thing to do But there s also a new list of things that we need to address if there is to be justice for these victims and it has to start with us and now we can because of your work and what it has exposed Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali the Special Victims Unit for refusing Magia sexualis to go along Astavakra Gîtâ: suivi de Avadhuta Gîtâ (Mystères de l'Inde) (French Edition) to get along Alice Vachss published Les maîtres des Upanishads (inédit).

I ve watched Law and Order Special Victims Unit read all kinds of mysteries and as a reporter covered police and the courts including sex crimes I realize however the I learn the less I know This is especially true about crimes such as rape which are so vile they are difficult to even comprehendFor example how many other than victims and sex crime investigators would understand that rape is not about sex but instead the need to control torture and terrorizeAlice Vachss understands very well In her book THEN AND NOW MY YEARS ON THE FRONT LINES PROSECUTING RAPISTS AND CONFRONTING THEIR COLLABORATORS she shows this with sometimes uncomfortable clarity based on her decades of experience as a sex crimes prosecutor Vachss explains the deliberate humiliation of a human being by force and the twisted imposition of one s sexual will on another are truly ugly There s nothing erotic about rape Rape is neither sexual nor sexy it is an ugly act of dominance and controlthey use the sex act itself to make their abuse of power personal Vachss spells out this ugly truth through stories of the cases she has prosecuted during her career Truths that most of us prefer not to even think about As she explains People believe that if something is unthinkable it can t be true I wish they were right I wish it were fiction One case involved eleven first degree robberies twelve first degree rapes nine first degree sodomies seventeen counts of either gun possession or gun use two first degree kidnappings and seven other unlawful imprisonment counts In all there were twenty two indictmentsagainst one defendant In another case the attacker had a machete He forced sex on her several different ways and positions in different locations She bled a lot Then he forced her to go through the house looking for valuables making her separate the real jewelry from the junk He made her lie on the bed beside him an endless stretch of terror while he watched TV Others included child rapists serial rapists rapists who spiked drinks and raped while the woman was passed outVachss also talks about the politics of prosecuting crimes About judges who are less than noble About attorneys who may not be much a better than the rapists About how guilt is often assigned to the victim About how a privileged son of a good family can often get away with awful crimesNot that Vachss has only bad and ugly stories to tell She has a number of successes Though they may seem trivial in comparison to the evil they are still worth celebrating She wrote Sex crimes prosecution may be a war where we lose a lot of the battles but it s one where we can never afford to surrender the one truth that remained important to me than all the rest is that what the public is entitled to from prosecutors is not any particular verdict but the willingness to step into the ring again and again THEN AND NOW MY YEARS ON THE FRONT LINES PROSECUTING RAPISTS AND CONFRONTING THEIR COLLABORATORS is far too valuable and complex to distill down to one review Perhaps one of the most important lessons of this book might be that rape is not about sex Vachss explains People seem to have this idea that rape happens when a male gets so overcome by his sexual desire for a woman that he loses all self control That s not what I saw in the crimes I prosecuted It wasn t that rapists were oversexed If anything they seemed to have an unusual amount of difficulty performing normally All the prostitutes who are in their graves because they laughed at a John s lack of performance learned the hard way These were crimes not of excess hormones but of power coercion control Rather than sex rape is about inflicting pain People who think rape is about sex confuse the weapon with the motivationFor most rapists the act of deliberately humiliating another human is integral to what they dothey look for that opportunity to degrade and control forcing the victim into acts of compliance Humiliation is their foreplaya rapist is a single minded totally self absorbed sociopathic beast a beast that cannot be tamed with understanding they look for whatever vulnerability might insulate them from capture and punishment Sometimes that means raping a child because we seem as a country to doubt the word of children who say they ve been raped And sometimes that means trying to sell the rest of us on the concept that it isn t really rape if the victim is someone we don t likeThe motive for rape is rape

This book is a memoir of Alice Vachss career in working to remove violent predators from the world at large Her heroes made me grieve forcefully and her foes made me seeth with white hot rage but those reactions are not what s important and why you should load this book into your Kindle or load yourself into the library to read itThe animals she mentions will lift your spirits whether they be dogs that provided the first semblance of safety in endangered children s lives or the schadenfreude when crows took revenge on a dog hater Still when you buy your copy off or borrow it from the library there are important reasonsThe reasons I feel and hope you may agree this book is so important are how Ms Vachss illuminates both allies of sexual abuse victims and collaborators with their victimizersBreaking the myth of the good victim and poisoning the root of any thought that any person or group of people are less deserving of our assistance and sympathy is a crucial first step of being an ally and no stronger iconoclast for that pernicious myth exists than VachssAlong the lines of that myth are the collaborators that perpetuate such ideas so as to excuse and exonerate predators and aid in repeatedly victimizing people The collaborators are all too real and make it very difficult for attackers to be brought to justiceAllies will find one of the greatest advantages they have is collaborators will always underestimate them occupational hazard of thinking other people are beneath considerationI hope other readers find and surpass the focus Ms Vachss book has given me and find inspiratuon as well
