Rosedale, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) February 10, 2011
Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of The Mailbox Syndrome. Authored by Derrick G. Arjune, this thought-provoking book takes a look at the family unit, one of the pillars of America, which is slowly being crushed in the minority community.
Randy Jonas, a decorated Vietnam veteran, was upset about his thirteen-year-old son coming home late from school. The son’s misbehavior was the result of his hanging out with a gang whose leader had a personal grudge against the boy. To correct his son’s current conduct, Randy beat the boy causing bruises to his body. The school notified the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) who then called the police. Randy was then arrested and forced out of his home. What followed was a series of events that culminate into an intense fight about who should have custody over the two boys of Randy Jonas and his wife.
The Mailbox Syndrome is not intended to be a sociological study. It is spurred by real-life experiences in the judicial system of New York. But because it is not about an atypical experience, one may very well conclude that it represents a study albeit a microscopic one of a severe problem in the society.
