About this item

Boylstein synthesizes previous social scientific research on the topic of police force with official federal, state and city reports on policing practices in order to define police use of force and begin to assess what levels of force are appropriate in specific kinds of situations. He emphasizes the importance of the statistics he presents in his book. He believes a truly equitable system is possible in America, even probable, but only if the people demand it. Once aware of inequalities, everyone has the duty to demand not only justice but social change and equality under the law. America’s values are justice, equality, freedom, independence and friendly cooperation, the values of the state, and the government should reflect the values of the people. It is time as a nation that we establish a society in which people of all races, ethnic groups, and social classes are equal. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
