MOTOR CITY: The Odyssey of the War on Drugs, Scales of Injustice and 2 of AMW @Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Motor-City-odyssey-injustice-Americas/dp/0965465659 @Kobo https://store.kobobooks.com/en-us/ebook/motor-city And, whereever books are sold. What happens when four U.S. presidents wage a war on drugs, and Americans become prisoners of war and part of the poverty-to-prison pipeline? What happens when two of America’s Most Wanted are victims of ineffective assistance of counsel? Attorney Sherri Jefferson answers these questions and more in Motor City: The Odyssey of the War on Drugs, Scales of Injustice and Two of Americas’ Most Wanted. Motor City stirs debate with its brutally honest depiction of the war on drugs in America. Human and personal in its characterizations and attention to detail, Motor City plunges the reader into the decades of the struggles endemic to people of color and the poor. The book journeys the lives of the Motor City Brothers that led to an investigation by the DEA, FBI, CIA, and High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) task forces. Sherri Jefferson lays the foundation for criminal justice reform and an end to the war on drugs by building upon evidence-based and scholarly research to produce an honest critique of the war on drugs that has created prisoners of war and a prison industrial complex.
