✓ The Sixteenth Round: From Number 1 Contender To #45472 ½ Download by ↠´ Rubin Carter I didn t know who Rubin Hurricane Carter was before I started this book but we got pretty intimate over the last few weeks. His story is amazing but also, sadly, not unusual I believe someone in the Kalief Browder doc said that innocent people get the worst treatment in jail prison because they know they do not deserve the treatment and they are likely to speak out against it. It s a snapshot of New Jersey penitentiaries in the 1960s 1970s and again, sadly, not too much has changed. Carter writes wonderfully, often with interesting metaphors His speaking voice also interjects his prose and makes it that much intimate.
