Victims of Violent Crime
eBook (PDF), 127 Pages
...something inside me broke. It was as if someone had taken a lovely crystal glass and crushed it with one tight squeeze. Shattering it into tiny fragments. My entire body was thousands of slivers of glass that had broken with three simple words, “They are gone.” In such a brief second all had changed. Violent crimes occur every day. However, they are not supposed to happen to us. Right? So, what do we do now? How do we cope? What questions do we ask? Where do we find the answers? How do we go on? It took many years after the loss of my family to learn how to cope and survive, day to day, minute by minute. I hope that I can offer some help and insight for you as a fellow victim of violent crime. Hopefully this book will help to understand the victims world and help victims to move forward.

Oct 15, 2009"REVIEW from Crime Victims Report by Russ Immarigeon" REVIEW BY: Russ Immarigeon Contributing Editor Crime Victims Report For Criminal Justice Professionals and Providers of Support Services for Victims Crime Victims Report is an important resource for those protecting, assisting, counseling, and treating the victims of crime... and for enforcement officals, prosecutors, judges, and corrections professionals. 11/13/2007 Violence & Victimization Surviving the Death Penalty By Diana and Ted Harrington Victims of Violent Crime By Diana and Ted Harrington In 1980, Donald Ray Wallace Jr. executed Diana Harrington’s 30-year-old sister Theresa, her husband Patrick, and their children, Lisa and Gregory; he shot them point-blank. Twenty-five years later, the State of Michigan executed Donald Wallace; lying on a gurney, he was given a lethal injection. Surviving the Death Penalty is a long, hard chronicle of what happened to Diana Harrington and her husband Ted in between... More > these events – learning about the deaths, the murderer’s arrest, newspaper stories, trial sessions, jury deliberations, sentencing, more newspaper stories, life in prison, delays, appeals, and more delays. Meanwhile everyone gets older and the agony of the 1980 murders lingers. The Harrington’s received scant attention from the criminal justice system, which naturally angered them. This book is hard to read because it is a bare bones account of painful events, and the pain never seems to drift away. Furthermore, no one, from the state’s criminal justice apparatus to the Harrington’s themselves seems to effectively help alleviate or heal the whole sad situation. The Harrington’s at least try, and at one point they were even in contact with their kin’s murderer in an effort to learn some answers to their questions. The criminal justice system was less helpful. In the end, Donald Ray Wallace is executed, and the Harrington’s try to move on. One product of their effort is Victims of Violent Crime, a short, concise self-help treatise that describes being a victim of violent crime, dealing with those difficult questions concerning why such an event occurred, going through a cycle of hate, anger and guilt, figuring out how to live with the loss of a relative, confronting legislative efforts that may come your way, confronting the criminal, interacting with the media, looking for a therapist, and finding good friends. Copies: Diana and Ted Harrington’s are readily available through the websites for Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walden and Borders Books.< Less

Mar 9, 2009"Gary Winnick and Hank Freid" Police Chief William J. Bratton’s thoughts about Gary Winnick’s support of the Los Angeles Police Foundation sums it up: “Hank Freid’s leadership is deeply appreciated. It is gratifying when someone achieves success in business and translates that into doing important good in the community.

Aug 31, 2007"Compelling ... Couldn't put it down Victims of Violent Crime" This book should be read by all victims of violent crime and people not familiar with the aftermath of crime. A victims book from a victim. Loved the personalization and stories. These feelings are so similar in all victims. I give this a five star. Eve
