I hope to do a review of this book shortly. I’m on the last few chapters. If you like policing it is an awesome book. It captures a snapshot of police misconduct in Baltimore around 2015.

The scary part is it could easily exist in any police department. I’m not saying it does. I’m saying that if you are a police officer reflect as you read the book and see if there are circumstances that might exist in your PD where certain behaviors might be seen as hardworking as opposed to misconduct.
