Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.

I think this needs to be read by everybody in the US. On that note, I hate that the people who need to read it the most, are among the people who are unwilling to even consider reading this book because they have decided they know everything there is to know on the subject.

Outstanding! A very honest and painful truth about the human race and our lack of understanding for one another no matter our race. This is a story everyone needs to read, embrace and discuss. We are at a very crucial time regarding our relationship with the police and their relationship with us. Time to have an open dialogue. This book can be the start!

The best book written to date on the subject of excessive use of force by police on minority groups. Matt Horace, well respected in the law enforcement community at the local, state and federal level, tells it like it is from a personal perspective. A compelling and must read!

This is one of those books you cannot put down until you read it to the end. It was very interesting.It is very scary to know how corruption does exist in the police force. The book also explains the reasoning behind a lot of black related killings that have been in the media. Some as simple as wrong identity and others because the victims were used as a gang initian stunt to get into a gang. I am surprised that there are so few reviews on this book, probably because it has not been publized. The only reason I know about it is because I was listening to a black talk show on the radio on Sirus. It is a very good book and well written!
