No, we’re not talking about your esteemed hosts, in his book Wicked Women, Dennis Stevens, a criminology professor and prison counselor, shares the fascinating life stories of fifteen super predators, detailing their early life experiences and criminal activities through the time they interacted with him in prison. Withholding their names and identities, he presents disturbing evidence and chronicles the long, destructive journeys of these super predators. Dr. Stevens spent several years among high-risk felons in some of the most heavily researched penitentiaries in America while teaching criminology at various universities. He uses his vast professional experience to create fictional vignettes based on real-life situations, offering a glimpse into the souls of creatures who carry out wicked acts under the cover of a mask of sanity. While presenting bizarre accounts of incredible human cruelty of every variety-including border raids, brutal beatings, cannibalism, rape, and gang warfare-Dr. Stevens provides a never-before-seen look into the backgrounds and twisted minds of people like Margo, a transgendered drug addict obsessed with setting fires, and Mary, a former New Orleans police officer convicted of killing her partner. Without censorship or interference from political police, Wicked Women presents eye-opening, unforgettable accounts of the outrageous thoughts and gruesome destruction of super predators. You can find Dennis on Facebook or read his blog.
Also joining us will be Brent Turvey. Brent has a Master of Science degree and is a highly qualified and experienced Forensic Scientist and Criminal Profiler. He is an author and has weighed in on some very high profile cases, including most recently, the West Memphis Three. We’ll be asking Brent about many of the crime cases that have dominated the news recently and he’ll tell us why, based on the way the forensic materials were collected in the Amanda Knox case, she should never have been convicted of murder and spent the last 4 years in an Italian prison. We’ll also touch on the Troy Davis execution (Troy Davis was recently executed by the State of Georgia, based on eyewitness testimony alone – when the bulk of the “witnesses” had recanted their previous statements.) We’ll also be discussing why it’s become so common for everyone to believe that every case is like the CSI television shows and why it’s just not that simple.
Brent Turvey’s work and commentary is frequently featured on truTV.
