Our enemies in blue : police and power in America / Kristian Williams.
Brooklyn, NY : Soft Skull Press : Distributed by Publishers Group West, 2004.
[MCL call number: 363.232 W724o 2004; two copies, six holds]

As you may know, this book was written by my partner Kristian and I am not at all an unbiased reviewer. However, I am fairly sure that I am never an unbiased reviewer. So: this book presents a clear, politically savvy account of where police came from, what they’re for, how they work, and why we don’t need them.

Our Enemies in Blue is an intellectually, socially, and politically useful book; Kristian’s writing is tight and a pleasure both for the mind and they eyes, even for an impatient reader such as myself (I’m always skipping to the end of the paragraph, the page, the chapter). The text is followed by an excellent bibliography and index.

THANK GOD SOMEONE HAS THE GUTS TO FINALLY TELL THE TRUTH
ABOUT THE POLICE. THEY ARE NOT HERO’S, BUT MOSTLY COWARDS
HIDING BEHIND A GUN AND BADGE. THE MEDIA CODDLES THEM AND
IS VERY RELUCTANT TO EXPOSE THE WIDESPREAD CORRUPTION THAT
EXISTS.
