A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book examines the first 23 cases in Colorado where citizens have used as a defense the 1985 Make My Day law, (i.e., which broadens the shooting rules against home intruders). The book begins with an examination of the law before and after Make My Day and with the controversy that arose during its passage through the Legislature. The 23 cases are categorized into love triangles; neighbor disputes; disputes among friends; disputes with police; disputes among drug dealers; and landlord/tenant disputes. The final chapter summarizes the problems that have arisen during the implementation of the new law and recommends a revision that would sustain Legislative intent.

Synopsis :

This book examines the first 23 cases in Colorado where citizens have used as a defense the 1985 'Make My Day' law, (i.e., which broadens the 'shooting rules' against home intruders). The book begins with an examination of the law before and after 'Make My Day' and with the controversy that arose during its passage through the Legislature. The 23 cases are categorized into love triangles; neighbor disputes; disputes among friends; disputes with police; disputes among drug dealers; and landlord/tenant disputes. The final chapter summarizes the problems that have arisen during the implementation of the new law and recommends a revision that would sustain Legislative intent.

Critique:

...Wilbanks is well qualified to conduct this study. He provides a scholarly analysis of the effect of Colorado's 'Make My Day' law passed in June of 1985...Wilbanks clearly did not begin the project with a preconceived point of view and he produces acareful analysis...The writing style is easy to follow... CHOICE The flawed nature of the 'Make My Day' experiment emerges in bold relief from Wilbanks' study...insightful and penetrating study...Clearly, the book points to numerous interpretive ambiguities inherent in the statute.
