[EAN: 9781558855489], [SC: 0.0], [PU: Arte Publico Pr], This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: They stole 15 years of my life. A native of Monterrey, Mexico, Ricardo Aldape Guerra was sentenced to death in 1982 for the first-degree murder of a Houston Police Officer. He spent 15 years in a maximum security prison in Huntsville, Texas, before his death sentence was overturned and he was set free. Ricardo Ampudia, explores the history and ethics of the death penalty in this fascinating look at its impact on Mexicans sentenced to death in the United States. A fervent opponent of capital punishment, Ampudia came to his beliefs because of his involvement in defending Aldape. The author offers a brief introduction about the death penalty, both in the U.S. and around the world. Most of the countries that apply the death penalty have dictatorial regimes or repressive governments, with the U.S. being the notable exception. Subsequent chapters focus on the death penalty in the U.S. and the work done by the Mexican government to protect its citizens abroad. The final chapters focus on the Ricardo Aldape Guerra case. In this section, its revealed that the reopened investigation of the crime uncovered evidence that the jury never heard when Aldape was convicted. And in fact, a shocking pattern of police and prosecutorial intimidation, misconduct, and abuse came to light. Originally published in Mexico as Mexicanos al grito de muerte, this absorbing account of the history, use, and flaws of the death penalty is a must-read for anyone interested in the criminal justice system in the United States.

ID: 437421663

Arte Público Press, 2010. Paperback. New Book. Paperback. Ampudia, former Consul General of Mexico in Houston, Texas, became an opponent of capital punishment during the course of his involvement in the case of Ricardo Aldape Guerra, a Mexican national who spent 15 years on death row in the US before his wrongful conviction was overturned. Writing in plain language, Ampudia demonstrates that executions are at times due more to causes such as racism and xenophobia than to solid evidence. After a history of the death penalty and an overview of the death penalty debate, the author explains legal and practical aspects of the death penalty in the US, using specific cases to make readers aware of the problems inherent in the US legal system, especially the risk of executing the innocent. He describes the work done by the Mexican government to protect its citizens abroad and analyzes two cases in-depth. The book includes appendixes on the death penalty worldwide, anti-death penalty organizations in the US, international legislation opposing the death penalty, and minors executed under the death penalty. The book was first published in Spanish as Mexicanos al Grito de Muerte. There is no subject index. (2010 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR), Arte Público Press, 2010
