Something between the Wild West and an annexed state under martial law


A great read for anyone wanting to know more about the details of US policing and real world, actionable change that can be enacted immediately.


Main takeaways:


  • The US is the wild fucking west and I had no idea how astoundingly unregulated those crime syndicates were.
  • A major part of that lack of oversight is the immense strength and influence of the police unions.


As an old fashioned Socialist, it’s not often I oppose union influence but a radical shift needs to take place to shape the market in which the police union operates.
