I can’t wait for Katzenstein’s article to come out. I think she let her biases interfere with her research. Just be reading some of the outlandish comments from this interview I can’t see how Katzenstein came to her conclusions.
In fact every person that I know that has had a “behind the scenes” look at policing has ALWAYS come away with a more favorable opinion of how police do their jobs. I have had local anti-police activists take out citizens police academy program and they have left with a more favorable opinion of police after completion of the program.
Katzenstein claims that police is anti-black. I look forward to see where in her article she supports this claim with evidence. I have NEVER seen, been trained, or learned or any police trainings that are anti-black. Or anti any specific group. Katzenstein seems to have written her article way before she stepped foot in the field. This is sad.
If I get a copy of Katzenstein’s article I will review it. I think it will need an honest assessment. I am sure the liberal news media will promote it like wildfire.
