USD Law Schools Federalist Society Hosting Author Radley Balko
Mr. Balko will discuss his nationally publicized 2013 book, Rise of the Warrior Cop, which contends police in American communities have increasingly come to resemble military ground troops. He suggests that the consequences have been dire: One’s home is no longer a place of sanctuary, the Fourth Amendment has been gutted, and police today have been conditioned to see the citizens they serve as the enemy.
Mr. Balko is a senior editor at Reason Magazine, a public policy analyst at the Cato Institute, and he blogs about criminal justice, the drug war and civil liberties for The Washington Post. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, and Huffington Post.
The program is free and open to the public.
