COPS AREN’T SUCH BAD GUYS features a series of chapters about cops and fatal shootings. As discussed, most of these killings are justified, due to the use of force guidelines which cops follow in the face of a deadly threat, despite the widespread anger and protests against the cops.
But this reaction is fueled by misinformation and sensational media coverage, while the cops involved in these shootings have their lives upended by extensive hearings and huge financial expenses.
This book describes the truth behind the headline stories that demonize cops.
THE PRICE OF JUSTICE IN AMERICA looks at a series of problems in the criminal justice system and how they might be fixed.
The topics discussed include rising racial tensions, especially between the police and black community, problems in the prison and correctional system, differences in the homicide rate in different groups, the relationship between homicide rate and drugs, and the media’s role in sensationalizing crime and contributing to problems in the criminal justice system.
BOOKS ON FIXING AMERICAN SOCIETY
CRIME IN AMERICA features selections from a series of six books by Paul Brakke, who writes on what’s wrong with the criminal justice system and how to fix it.
These books deal with the police, courts, and prisons, and consider of some of the crises now facing American society due to illegal immigration, the opioid crisis, and the growing divide between racial, ethnic, rural-urban, and income groups. This book summarizes the critical insights of these other books in order to reach the widest possible audience, because one of Brakke’s reasons for writing this book is to inspire real change.
The book is organized into five sections. Part I deals with crime, who commits it, and the police as our first line of defense. Part II deals with punishment and its consequences, including the swamped criminal justice system, the positive and negative results of incarceration, and the collateral damage to the families of those incarcerated.
Suggested remedies are scattered throughout these first two sections. Then, Part III concentrates on specific solutions, emphasizing reducing the return of ex-cons to prison and the length of prison sentences. Part IV concentrates on our drug plague, and Part V deals with divisions in the nation, some raised in previous sections, that must be healed to make America great again.
