              I have long felt proud (and lucky) to be an American Citizen. One of the sources of that pride had been America's reputation for the wholesome administration of justice. However, long after I qualified as a senior citizen I was shocked to discover what I identify as a Widespread ...and Callous Indifference to the Realization of Justice among those Responsible for the Administration of Justice in my own world. My late-in-life education relating to this serious social disorder followed from my extensive personal engagement with justice administration operatives ranging from an unranked police officer through to a State Supreme Court Justice while touching every station in between. I am persuaded that my fellow citizens should become aware that this sorry situation can be real. That's what this book is all about.

My ultimate goal is to motivate or provoke (or embarrass) justice administration practitioners into more seriously contemplating the unfortunate impact of justice administration indifference on the actual realization of justice and to promote justice administration practices that better foster the realization of justice. My book includes several simple specific proposals for re-tuning justice administration practice.

Unbeknownst to me at the scene the thug induced the abusive, gullible, responding police officer, with whom he had negotiated two hours earlier, to ultimately charge me with hitting the thug with my car. That rogue polic
