Book Review: Rise of the Warrior Cop

Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America's Police Forces
Radley Balko
Jul 9, 2013
400 pages

  I've been a fan of Radley Balko's reporting for at least half a decade.  He has a way of reporting serious or tragic events with humor and intelligence that makes them both palatable and understandable.  He is the journalist responsible for compiling the incidents of wrong Botched Police Raids mapped out at the Cato Institute.
  This book seems to be about half new content and half a compendium of his best articles. I enjoyed it although there wasn't too much I didn't already know.
