I just finished this. Took me over two months for two reasons. First I didn't want to rush through it like it was a novel. This is non fiction about a very serious topic. And second I was too mad at some points to really absorb what I was reading. There are really a lot of things covered in this book, mostly about how our right to privacy and rules about searches have been changing dramatically over the last 40 years. And the rise of SWAT teams. I don't think that anyone would argue that SWAT teams don't have a time and place, but we need to take a serious look at how they are used and the increasingly less serious offenders that they are deployed against. I understand that this book only gives one side of the issue and was written for the purpose of selling books but there is still a lot of good info here. And IMO this issue transcends politics. Well, ready it should transcend political parties. Both sides have done there part to feed the problem and both sides cry foul when the tactics and policies they created are used against them. And finally I want to say that like the author of this book I don't believe this problem is because of bad police officers. It's about bad policy. The drug war, no knock raids, the way police are funded, the lack of oversite and in many cases the complete lack of accountability. I'm sure there are bad cops out there, but I'm also sure that just like the rest of society there are far more good then bad. Do has anyone else read this?
