Reviews - What do customers think about Deadly Innocence??

Perske brings a needed report from the dark side  Feb 8, 2008
Beginning with the story of Joe Arridy, certified as a "feeble-minded imbecile" who was executed in Colorado in 1939, Deadly Innocence? traces political and judicial handling of incidents involving persons with retardation; describes similar current cases; and offers suggestions for action on the part of the police, the courts, professionals who work in the field of developmental disabilities, and concerned citizens.

Robert Perske is widely known as a writer and advocate has focused attention in recent years on the interface of disability and what is called the justice system. In this fast-paced true story, Perske continues his investigation of instances when confessions come too easily, or have little evidence to back them up.

The childlike Arridy, labeled "feebleminded," and formerly institutionalized, had been convicted of murder on the basis of a dubious confession. In spite of the efforts of the politically prominent prison warden, who had become Arridy's friend, Arridy was executed. He had to be talked out of taking his toy train-a gift from the warden-with him to the gas chamber.
