New other : lowest price. I can't but connect this with a comment Lavergne cites about the "Cut": "You look out the window and you wonder and say: "Somebody ought to neuter all these people. Many scholars trace the American murder rate, the highest in the developed world, back to slavery, which was premised on treating a sector of the population as lesser lives.
Bad Boy: The True Story of Kenneth Allen McDuff, the Most Notorious Serial Killer in Texas History
There's an obvious repetition of this attitude in the case of prostitutes. Clearly, McDuff's career crystallized an underlying panic about the corruption and deficiency of the system, but only on the level of punishment. One of the most startling sentences in Lavergne's book is this: "During the legislative session, fewer than sixty bills were filed creating new crimes and felonies.
A more politically informed observer would ask why, during a conservative epoch, the intensified regulation of individual behavior in tandem with the deregulation of corporate behavior was received with such little resistance. Eventually, this is going to happen again, as the burden of expenditures for prisons strains the system. Maybe then we will start distinguishing those offenses like murder which should be punished by prison with those like drug usage which shouldn't.

This time i read it together with another book about this serial killer: No Remorse by Bob Stewart. The 2 books were very much alike. The difference this book was bigger, had a chapter with notes but most important it was published later 3 Years? McDuff did tell where 3 of his victims were buried so I am so glad that they were able Finished reading last night. McDuff did tell where 3 of his victims were buried so I am so glad that they were able to bring Regina, Colleen and Melanie home.
Plus the author also told us that McDuff died. He was executed on November 17, at Huntsville Unit. Release me". He is buried in the cemetery of the prison where he was executed. His grave marker is adorned only with his death row number: X It is very interesting to learn that what he did, being paroled twice and kill again, launched a massive overhaul of its prison system to prevent violent criminals from winning early parole in Texas.
The parole rules were tightened and I can imagine he must have been on of the most hated prisoners by his fellow prisoners. Terrifying Subject This man was terrifying, and now he can never harm anyone again.

The cities of Waco, Austin , and Belton are much safer with him gone. I currently live in Rosebud and anyone that is older talks about McDuff a lot! He didn't spend as much time here as I thought from the way people talk about him. But this is a small town and it's like stepping back in time when you come here. Like for real, half this town does not get internet and a lot of them wouldn't want it if they could get it.

So after reading about what he did to those poor women I see how after all this time they talk about him like it happened last week. That kind of st I currently live in Rosebud and anyone that is older talks about McDuff a lot! That kind of stuff never happens here and probably won't happen ever again. Jan 20, Dale Stonehouse rated it liked it. Well-researched and meticulously told, this story of cold-blooded mayhem is hampered only by its lack of emphasis on possible root causes for such behavior. McDuff was so feared and hated that his execution prompted little or no opposition to the death penalty, for which Texas is notorious.

Jul 14, Steve rated it really liked it. It is not merely a biography of a criminal although it is rich in biographic detail of the criminal, cronies, victims, prosecutors, and lawmen. There is also a fair amount of coverage of the crimes without reveling in the lurid details of the crimes. The communities the parts of town where McDuff operated and the attitude towards McDuff was also explored, adding background.
