Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America's Police Forces

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: 125

Join author and Huffington Post journalist Radley Balko for a discussion on how politicians’ ill-considered policies and relentless declarations of war against vague enemies like crime, drugs, and terror have blurred the distinction between cop and soldier at the expense of civil liberties. Today’s police forces increasing use military tactics and equipment in their interactions with civilians. Heavily armed police raid the homes of unarmed, non-violent, or even innocent suspects on the flimsiest of pretexts, resulting in needless violence, fear, and death. Over the last few decades, a creeping battlefield mentality has isolated and alienated American police officers and put them on a collision course with the values of a free society.

Deli Zone for lunch.
