內容簡介

正義存在的法律與公理中,也存在內心的慈悲。

美國宣導公平裁判的先驅、人權律師Bryan Stevenson的回憶錄,窮盡一生,都在與不公正甚至是錯誤的司法體系作鬥爭,保護受到不平等待遇的黑人和窮人。Just Mercy回顧他生平接手的第一個案件,名叫Walter McMillian的年輕男子經歷一天半審訊後,在沒有認罪的情況下被判處了死刑。

「我還沒有做好準備,去見一個罪犯。」翻開書的第一句話。爾後便是當時才23歲的Bryan Stevenson如何將Walter McMillian營救出死囚區,獲得無罪釋放的過程。故事發生地與《梅崗城的故事》一樣,都在阿拉巴馬州。

由於書中都是真實故事,讀來更令人動容,不僅僅是這位鬥士對正義的無畏追尋,更讓人訝異的還有受到屈辱與不公對待的Walter McMillian,他寬恕了那些迫害他的人們,感同身受那些迫害者們也是種族主義的受害者,因為後者的無端仇恨並沒有讓他們自己變得更幸福快樂,深陷惡性循環而無法自拔。

全書很多的不公、憤懣、悲劇,也充滿了勇氣、寬容與憐憫,很多值得深思的空間。

A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time
 
Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.
 
Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.
