Summary
"Bernard Kerik was New York City's police commissioner during the 9/11 attacks, who became an American hero as he led the NYPD through rescue and recovery efforts of the World Trade Center. Now, he is a former federal prison inmate known as #84888-054, convicted of tax fraud and false statements in 2007. Now for the first time, he talks candidly about his time on the inside: the torture of solitary confinement, the abuse of power, the mental and physical torment of being locked up in a cage, the powerlessness"--Amazon.com
Summary
In this extraordinary memoir, Kernik reveals his unprecedented view of the American penal system from both sides: as the jailerand the jailed. With astonishing candor, bravery, and insider’s intelligence, Bernard Kerik shares his fall from grace to incarceration, and turns it into a genuine and uniquely insightful argument for criminal justice reform
