SWAT Madness and the Militarization of the American Police In the US, military-style police enforcement is fast becoming the norm - even the smallest police departments now field costly SWAT units. This book looks into the realities of zero-tolerance, militaristic policing, the tactics and equipment used, the problematic 'crime warrior' mindset at play, and the statistical evidence of its ineffectiveness.

Product Description:

With the immediacy of a daily newspaper, this book reveals how the irresponsible use of SWAT teams, shock-and-awe policing, and the increasing militarization of American law enforcement is changing the face of "the land of the free." * Provides 30 case studies documenting inappropriate SWAT team deployment

Review:

"Fisher ... offers a powerful work that takes up the cause for society and law enforcement to conduct a realistic, rational assessment of the proliferation and expanded use of special weapons and tactics (SWAT) teams. ...This very nice scholarly work, well researched and supported with factual, albeit occasionally sarcastic, commentary, is well suited for criminal justice and especially public issues collections. ...Recommended." - Choice
