Availability: Ready to download

If you think abuses such as the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson are caused by a "few bad apples" in the police force, think again. As this exposé shows, the magnitude of the problem goes far beyond the well-known incidents. In this eye-opening book, nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Josh Tolley documents hundreds of police abuse cases that have occurred with If you think abuses such as the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson are caused by a "few bad apples" in the police force, think again. As this exposé shows, the magnitude of the problem goes far beyond the well-known incidents. In this eye-opening book, nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Josh Tolley documents hundreds of police abuse cases that have occurred with no respect to race, age, gender, location, or income status. Tolley has been covering this topic on a daily basis for the past four years. From hair-raising no-knock raids at the wrong address that resulted in the deaths of innocent people to the rape of women seeking police help and the confiscation of property of even those found not guilty, the cases reported here expose the gravity and pervasiveness of this problem. Going beyond just reporting, the book also contains illuminating interviews with victims, police officers, and lawyers. Tolley concludes by considering potential solutions ranging from the use of body cams and the elimination of money-generating quotas for officers to citizen review boards and a greater emphasis on elected sheriffs to oversee police conduct. Without indulging in "cop-bashing" or broad-brush exaggerations, this disturbing wake-up call aims to improve law enforcement for citizens and officers alike. From the Trade Paperback edition.
