A Fatal Drinking Party
AN EYE FOR AN EYE -- A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty...The Brutal Murder Of Ethel Mae AtkinsEpisode 301 is an especially sordid tale, and I don’t belive all of the lurid details were revealed, although many of them hinted at as police and people who knew her inadvertently reveal uncomfortable truths even as they try to protect the dignity of the victim. But I think she just went on a bender and things took a dark fatal turn.

Shot In The Arms Of The Law
YESTERDAY’S NEWS --Tales of classic scandals, scoundrels and scourges told from historic newspapers in the golden age of yellow journalism...Berthe Claiche’s Revenge Episode 297 relates the sad story of Berthe Claiche, whom we met briefly in last week’s episode when she gave a necklace to her cellmate, Josephine Terranova. I normally like to mix things up a bit, but these two tales have a lot in common, interesting back stories about immigrants struggling to adapt to American ways, courtroom theatrics, and sympathetic abused female defendants. Not that murder is ever a good idea, but if I were in their shoes... What do you think?Culled from the historic pages of the New York Evening World, the New York Sun, and other newspapers of the era.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenderloin,_Manhattanhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grisette_(person)$10 in 1906=$275 in 2018***A creation Of Pulpular MediaCan’t wait for the next episode to drop?

content is good, but cannot stand the narrator. Bizarre vocal cadence.

The casual racism you find in old articles is disconcerting at times.
