“Witness to a Crime” is a suppressed book, joining a pantheon of illustrious books that authorities have banned in the past. I used to teach Western Civilization, in which I read passages from works that had been listed on the “Index of Prohibited Books.” Some were banned for “obscenity.” Others were banned for “heresy.” Still others were banned for being “subversive.” Truth can be any of these things.
Those of us who struggled to get this book out have suffered through some very dark days. It should have been enough to do the investigation and analysis. In the end, already traumatized and exhausted, we had to do all the typesetting, and all the formatting, and all the editing, and all the graphics, and we had to come up with $26,000 to fulfill the promise made, and reneged upon, by Kent State University Press.

I have been told that “censorship always helps,” because in the end it draws attention to the censored work. But this cannot be accomplished by the banished author alone. This is where you, the readers, come in. We have no publicist, and no distribution network. We call upon our fellow patriots to be the town criers, to spread the word of impending tyranny, to let the world know that the Redcoats, or Brownshirts, are coming.
