Excellent book on author's personal experience as St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department where police are promoted not for protecting and serving but for the number of arrests and convictions they support. Carter tells about the vocational stresses, describes the terrible policy behind poor practices and culture of policing in St. Louis (and other U.S. cities who are all engaged in the national "War on Drugs." An important book for what it reveals and the difference it highlights with suburban policing where police are rewarded for fines (vs. city where they're rewarded for arrests and convictions).

Having worked with Terrell, I am familiar with his ability to share stories that connect speaker, audience, and content. He transfers this ability from the auditorium to the page (or screen) in this book, and with great skill. I do not envy his task - calling citizens and police to account for the ways in which we damage our relationships with one another and trying to help us find our way to one another - but I know that he takes it seriously, and I am glad to see his heart for all kinds of people come through in these words.
1.0 out of 5 starsGarbage book...Everything is racist

Terrell Carter was an activist from the beginning. He never wanted to be a police officer. He pretended to be a police officer for a very short time just so he could write a book about how everything is racist and make money. Garbage book from a garbage activist author. It's all about Terrell Carter getting paid by using racial division.
