Not your typical true crime Dec 14, 2001
Joyce Spizer is the only writer who could possibly makes us feel outrage on behalf of a monster. How does she accomplish this? By showing us the failings in the justice system and the social supports and the schools that could have prevented the deaths of the 70 people of which Glen Rogers has killed, that we know about. Joyce's most shocking revelation is not that Glen may be the one who actually killed Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson. This will most likely be a matter of fierce debate, as will her contention that Glen Rogers' depravity is partly due to his unfit parents, who have rendered all but one of their seven children forever damaged (they have 300 arrests between them.) Her insight into judicial errors of L.A. County and Florida makes you take seriously her argument that the law enforcement officials who failed to stop Glen Rogers before he killed his first victim are as much to blame for the ruined lives as Glen himself. Joyce sets out to do something revolutionary, and succeeds in sounding a "wake-up call" to all those who just wash their hands of troubled at-risk juveniles.
I've never read true crime before--I loved it!! Nov 7, 2001
I haven't ever picked up a true crime book before. I really enjoyed this book. You can tell it was well researched! Some of the family interviews must have been very difficult. I learned a great deal about the mind of a serial killer, or at least this one in particular.Also, I learned a whole lot about trial law and porphyria (the disease Glenn has). It was very insightful.
