"35,000 Americans are arrested every day, and the number of prisoners has increased 500% over the last three decades.

Who do you serve, who do you protect? : police violence and resistance in the United States by Maya Schenwar( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of reports and essays explores police violence against Black, Brown, Indigenous and other marginalized communities, miscarriages of justice, and failures of token accountability and reform measures. It also makes a compelling and provocative argument against calling the police. Contributions cover a broad range of issues including the killing by police of Black men and women, police violence against Latino and Indigenous communities, law enforcement treatment of pregnant people and those with mental illness, and the impact of racist police violence on parenting, as well as specific stories such as a Detroit police conspiracy to slap murder convictions on young Black men using police informants, and the failure of Chicago's much-touted Independent Police Review Authority, the body supposedly responsible for investigating police misconduct."--
