#Rise_of_the_Warrior_Cop new #book by #Radley_Balko The last days of colonialism taught Americaâ€™s revolutionaries that soldiers in the streets bring conflict and tyranny. As a result, our country has generally worked to keep the military out of law enforcement. But according to investigative reporter Radley Balko, over the last several decades, Americaâ€™s cops have increasingly come to resemble #ground_troops. The consequences have been dire: the home is no longer a place of sanctuary, the #Fourth_Amendment has been gutted, and police today have been conditioned to see the citizens they serve as an otherâ€”an enemy.
