RP Live – Police: Reform or Abolition?
June 13 @ 9:00 pm EDT
Given its history and purpose, policing is not meant to be reformed. What are our choices?
Update: Join us for RP Live with David Correia and Tyler Wall, authors of Police: A Field Guide
Tuesday, June 13th at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT — Registration link below
Police: A Field Guide is a study of the indirect and taken-for granted language of policing, a language we’re all forced to speak when we talk about law enforcement … the authors expose the way “copspeak” suppresses the true meaning and history of policing. Like any other field guide, it reveals a world that is hidden in plain view. (Verso Books)
