#Rise_of_the_Warrior_Cop new #book by #Radley_Balko The last days of colonialism taught America’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, America’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 other—an enemy.
