Here is a NYT Book review of three new books on Policing in the USA.

The books are:

1. Called to Rise by David O. Brown with Michelle Burford;

2. Policing the Black Man by Angela Davis (ed.); and

3. Chokehold by Paul Butler.

I am probably going to buy one of these, but I wonder if any shipmates have read any books on the topic that I could add to the mix.

I think this is the right spot to put this question. I vacillated between here, purg, and adding it to the hell post on the topic...

sorry, an addition because I'll be at work for the next 20hrs or so: I have a positive attitude to the police. I have to walk the line between getting pissed off at 'unfair' attacks on the cops and falling into the trap of liking an argument because it reinforces my prejudices.

So what's a good book for a person like me to read so I can learn something and not either switch off or join the cheersquad.

For book reviews in quantity I'd go to Goodreads. I haven't read any of them myself.
