Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the author:
''Radley Balko is one of those throw-back journalists that understands the power of groundbreaking reporting and how to make a significant impact through his work. Time and time again, his stories cause readers to stop, think, and, most significantly, take action.'' --Judges' Statement, Los Angeles Press Club Awards Ceremony

About the Author

RADLEY BALKO is an award-winning investigative journalist who writes about civil liberties, police and prosecutors, and the broader criminal justice system. A senior writer and investigative reporter for the Huffington Post, he was formerly a senior editor for Reason magazine and a policy analyst for the Cato Institute. Balko's 2006 Cato report Overkill is considered the seminal work on the rise of SWAT teams and paramilitary police tactics in America.
