Pollard provides the necessary research of cases of violence, but he does not stop with just those attacks on Blacks. He talks about all that has happened in America... Then specifically discusses the unanswered questions about lack of punishment of the offender, if it happens to be a police officer.
But this is not a one-sided diatribe. It is a well-written review and analysis of the topic...Both sides have developed a real phobia--a fear, or in some a hatred of those on each side.
Pollard discusses how the advances of electronics has provided the means by which individual actions are no longer just known locally--they are broadcasted nationally.
From a police leadership standpoint, this has allowed them to see the scope and wide-spread actions that have occurred and are increasing!
It should not take those that fear the lack of police support to solve this major problem! But more and more we find individual citizens such as Pollard speaking out because of what is happening. The reality exists; justice must be swift and strong. It should not lead to further fear and/or, worse, hopelessness.
That's what got America to where it is today...
For me, every individual has to take a position of action. We need to speak out intelligently, proactively, and be able to see and discuss both sides of this issue. This book is an excellent review of what has occurred, along with the beginning of conceptual thoughts on the problem. I consider it a must-read for all who see, acknowledge, and want to work to move constructively ahead toward solution.
