text Ê The Lives of Sacco and Vanzetti Ó Rick Geary

This particular event is how this polarized and galvanized the world A possibly biased judge they could never get rid of no matter how many appeals thanks to Massachusetts law and a prevailing attitude especially among the ruling elite about eradicating anarchists and communists may have contributed to what many decried as a monkey court trial Many pieces of evidence were inconclusive much testimony uestionable Rio I love these Rick Geary collections They are such a pleasure to read They are well researched including a bibliography and well balanced but what I really enjoy most is his highly detailed artwork I didn't know much about the Sacco and Vanzetti murder trial before but I learned a lot from this book; even if there is still some room for doubt about their innocence there is no doubt at all that they did not receive a fair trial due to rampant anti immigrant and anti anarchist prejudice

The Lives of Sacco and VanzettiThe fourth entry in Geary's chronicling of famous XXth century murders tackles the extremely controversial case of Italian immigrants Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti Geary delves into his most political case yet in this series however all his favorite elements are there the murders are unsolved the attention of the media is tremendous there are multiple theories as to what really happened What's unusual about Reason for Reading Next in the seriesI have to admit I wasn't looking forward to this one that much as I prefer the ones about the bloody serial killers like Beast of Chicago I had never heard of this case and the robberymurder socialistanarchist angle didn't get me that excited Surprisingly though once I started reading I was uite taken with this case especially the proceedings of the trial and the way the reader is left ruminating whether they were in fact guilty or innocent It's amazing that with how this became such a worldwide controversy with many country leaders of the 1920's and famous personages speaking out on the case that it has become so obscure today One would think their names at least would have been remembered I can only say what a pleasure it was to read Geary again nobody and I mean no body does bw graphic novels like Rick Geary His artwork and presentation of these true crimes is pure joy to hold in your hands I like the order Geary presented the story first with the crime being committed then going back and telling the life stories of the two individual accused and finally ending with the trial It is uite shocking to today's standard's to see how prejudiced a 1920s courtroom could be We have a sense today of people being racist against others because of their religion and mostly because of the colour of their skin but it is hard to comprehend the radical racism portrayed here against the Italians simply because of the country they came from And to see these people discredited for that in the courtroom Geary leaves us with the list for and against their innocence the belief many professionals have today that at least Sacco was probably guilty and leaves us to ponder the uestion on our own An intriguing case I would never have found myself reading about if it weren't for this book
