If this doesn't disturb you nothing will . . .

Dear Curt,

My brother has been locked up for 14 years without ever being charged with a crime.

His name is Mohamedou Ould Slahi. He has been detained in Guantánamo Bay Prison by the U.S. government since August 2002. My name is Yahdih. I’m calling for his release – and I urgently need your help.

Thoughts and more Thoughts

They don't have ya in our library in Sioux Falls. What's with that? 

Many libraries in Minnesota have it and some in Colorado I believe. Can't speak for Sioux Falls but I can say we all need to beware of Criminal Justice Reform.

"Why would anyone ever admit doing a terrible crime they didn't do?" Gross said. "The first thing to note is the risk false confessions goes up rapidly when the suspects are either juveniles or mentally handicapped or both."

Consider this fact. Dub was a young man in Brand of Justice and had many things to consider while being hammered by the police. We always teach our kids to respect authority and go along with it. A parent pointed this out to me after their son had been arrested. Think about that parents, when you send your son or daughter onto the streets thinking 'he'll / she'll never do anything wrong' before they are getting slapped around hard by the system. 

It is impossible to read your last post because your book icons are blocking the text.

Come on get real and pay attention to details.
Still Flapping after all these years

Perhaps, just perhaps it was intentional.

Pain leads to Bad Reviews

Judge a book by it's cover
I picked up Brand of Justice after reading the reviews. Loving it so far. If Montana reviewers had any sense they would read then review!!! 

There are deeper issues involved here such as the lose of a loved one I suspect. Some of the reviewers indicate they are opposed to Jerimie Hicks being granted any consideration what-so-ever. He is to be despised to the end of time. I prefer a 360 Consideration including Jerimie and his wonderful family. If I was to back down on subject material under sonsideration for my stories they would be in affect censored. This is not the way towards the path of truthfulness.

Actually 'Brand of Justice' is a work of fiction!

"Cops having a Hard Days Night.":
Just left previous post but wnated you to know I loved JusThis. Slow start but boy did it pick up. I got it out of the library and loved it. My library doesn't have a copy of Brand of Justice but I'm going to pick one up. Thanks for the stories!

Love them. Keep them coming

Can I just open with saying I haven't read the book yet, but not for lack of not wanting too. But when I first met Curt and he and I talked, tragedy hadn't struck my life and I haven't had the focus to read it yet. But I'm so honored that I met Curt, I can't wait till my life is back in a place of wholeness so I can read the book and give my honest review. Curt offered to send me a copy of his first book, but again, I had a tragedy in my life and turned away from the cyberworld for a while. So Curt if you happen to read this review, Remember ME, Barbara, The girl that wants to give you a Rude Awakening, lol. I hope by summer's end I will be able to sit down, relax, and open Brand Of Justice! Good reviews on it so far!!!

Mr Rude's keen sense for detail has the reader immersed within the scene every step of the way..."Brand of Justice" is going to create a Brobdingnagian impact in the murder/mystery scene! The plot, one thinks at first is spelled out, until ah-ha! Nope, not what you'd expect...there it went and twisted and turned again. Between the completely enthralling storyline and the truth of the matter of things in law enforcement that no one else but Mr Rude has the guts to reveal, "Brand of Justice" is undeniably, hands-down a must read and you won't put it down til you're done!

Fiction? Reads like nonfiction, sorta scary! Cops like this are in the headlines more and more each day. Must read.

So turns out I'm very familiar with the Hicks case. For him to be portrayed as innocent in any way whatsoever makes this a work of fiction. The author should be ashamed of himself for trying to sensationalize a monster who murdered, and ended up admitting to it, a 3 year old little girl. The state of Montana stands by and protects his children, so to think Hicks got an unfair "brand of justice" for murdering a 3 year old is absurd. This is sickening.

Heros Sins and Cold Cash

Just finished this story. Man . . . what is it about Americans and their heroes? Really can we do better than this? I'm thinking it has something to do with the old words of wisdom . . . "Money is the Root of all Evil."

Cops having a Hard Days Night.

The Police have a hard job to do. Its people like you who make it harder. What is it about Crimainls like child killers you like anyway. If you had kids it would be different.

Okay . . . I did say we'd answer this from within the confines of the assault statute but thanks for your interest. I know the police have hard jobs to do but so do soldiers-miners-firemen and and and. I gotta say it seems to get harder every day. But here's my rub on the issue. There are good ones and bad ones as we can finally see with technology. Should we not hold the bad ones accountable? I thinks so because it makes our Police Effort a whole lot better. I do have kids and hold these beliefs. I was a cop from 1989 to 2008. My advice to you? Go to Amazon and bash a book you haven't read! (Just Kidding). Have a nice one this weekend my friends and enemies and yes, I had a wonderful book signing in Hastings on a dreary day.

Daily Police Beating

If you're a 'Law and Order Type' I'd love to hear what you think of this (as told already in 'Brand of Justice'). Shameless plug I know. Anyways consider this piece of the Assault Statute before answering. 

(2) intentionally inflicts or attempts to inflict bodily harm upon another.

Actions speak louder than words and I'm trying Anonymous . . . Really Trying.

Maybe you should do it, they could use a little common sense!!!
