Neighbor book talk: “The Third Degree” at Politics & Prose
May 6, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Anyone who has ever seen an episode of Law and Order or almost any crime drama on American television can probably recite a suspect’s “Miranda rights” by heart. You know – the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney, etc. But what most people don’t know is that these rights had their roots in the compelling case of a young Chinese man accused of murdering three of his countrymen in Washington, DC in 1919.
Forest Hills resident Scott Seligman will talk about his book The Third Degree: The Triple Murder that Shook Washington and Changed American Criminal Justice at 3pm on Sunday, May 6th at Politics and Prose. The event is free. No reservation required.
