Detective Roubicek, the author of this book, is to be commended for correcting some of the public's misconceptions about the adequacy of our existing laws, misconceptions which too many other experts in the field propagate and perpetuate. I would especially recommend Chapter 6 to anyone who wants a first hand account of how lawmakers in Florida compromised a bill pertaining to crimes against the elderly, making it so that fewer abused elderly people would be protected by the state, in order to save the state money while at the same time appearing to protect seniors.
