Shouting Fire : Stories from the Edge of Free Speech( Visual )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary look at the evolution of the concept of free speech throughout the United States' history, and a specific examination of the balancing act between protecting civil liberties and national security in a post-9/11 world. Despite the First Amendment, is all speech equally free? As a living document, the U.S. Constitution is subject to changing interpretations; court cases that have alternatively broadened and narrowed the amendment's protections. But its greatest challenge may be the government that seized on the 9/11 tragedy as unprecedented license to surveil, intimidate, arrest, and detain citizens. The eternal question is: Do Americans ever benefit by limiting the scope of the First Amendment? Noted attorney Martin Garbus serves as tour guide, with examples drawn from recent controversies in education, and protest movements past and present

Prosecutors have labelled them "the worst of the worst". All three of them will spend the rest of their lives in jail as a result of mandatory sentencing laws. The laws that put these three young men away answered a popular cry at the time, but many are now questioning if the law makers got the balance right between crime and punishment"-- edited from the website

Coma( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Coma follows four patients admitted to the JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey, one of the leading institutions in the world for the study and care of traumatic brain injuries. Two were involved in car accidents; one was assaulted, thrown from a bridge; and one fell from a balcony. All have all awoken from a comatose state, which means they can enter a minimally conscious state and either then progress to a more fully conscious state of awareness and functionality, or retreat into a permanent vegetative state. Awakened patients have a one-year window to show improvement--if they don't progress within this period, the vast majority never will. These injuries mystify doctors, frustrate patients, and the quest to help patients improve consumes the lives of families. The bottom line: the majority of people who suffer a traumatic brain injury rarely go back to being the person they were before their accidents, and doctors don't really know why
