Summary
American law enforcement is a system in crisis. Most of us have taken for granted that innovative new technologies can only help. These technologies have--in theory--given police powerful, previously unthinkable faculties: the ability to incapacitate a suspect without firing a bullet (Tasers); the capacity to more efficiently assign officers to high-crime areas using computers (Compstat); and, with body cameras, a means of defending against accusations of misconduct. But in this vivid, deeply-reported book, Matt Stroud shows that these tools are overhyped and, in many cases, ineffective. Instead of wrestling with tough fundamental questions about their work, police leaders have looked to technology as a silver bullet and stood by as corporate interests have insinuated themselves ever deeper into the public institution of law enforcement
Summary
An investigation of how high-tech tools such as tasers, computer databases and body cameras have failed to improve policing throughout the country, but have instead made police officers lazier, reckless and discriminatory
