Foundations of a flawed system -- Systemic racism -- Use of force and justice -- The future of American policing.
This book explores how the US criminal justice system perpetuates inequality, from the police's origins as slave patrols to the school-to-prison pipeline. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and there is great racial inequality in the criminal justice system.
