    Rise of the Warrior Cop traces the arc of US law enforcement from the constables and private justice of colonial times to present-day SWAT teams and riot cops. Today relentless "war on drugs" and "war on terror" pronouncements from politicians, along with battle-clad police forces with tanks and machine guns, have dangerously blurred the distinction between cop and soldier. Balko's fascinating, frightening narrative shows how martial rhetoric and reactionary policies have put modern law enforcement on a collision course with the values of a free society.

    Christopher says: "Scarier than any horror book. Because it's true!"
    "Jaw is on the floor!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Rise of the Warrior Cop again? Why?

    So many stats and stories I am listening againg to add emphasis and recount what I might have missed.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The fact that everything is backed up with facts. I couldn't believe some of the numbers I was hearing regarding swat budget, swat instances of botched raids, and how many innocent victims are created in the US system of justice with zero accountability.


    Which character – as performed by William Hughes – was your favorite?

    The public


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It put me in shock and has made me view the police different.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought I knew how law enforcement worked in the US. I didn't have a clue. This book is a very eye opening read
