9780316440080
During his 28-year career, Matthew Horace rose through the ranks from a police officer working the beat to a federal agent working criminal cases in some of the toughest communities in America to a highly decorated federal law enforcement executive managing high-profile investigations nationwide. Yet it was not until seven years into his service- when Horace found himself face down on the ground with a gun pointed at his head by a white fellow officer-that he fully understood the racism seething within America's police departments. Through gut-wrenching reportage, on-the-ground research, and personal accounts from interviews with police and government officials around the country, Horace presents an insider's examination of archaic police tactics. He dissects some of the nation's most highly publicized police shootings and communities to explain how these systems and tactics have hurt the people they serve, revealing the mistakes that have stoked racist policing, sky-high incarceration rates, and an epidemic of violence. "Horace's authority as an experienced officer, as well as his obvious integrity and courage, provides the book with a gravitas." -- The Washington Post "The Black and the Blue is an affirmation of the critical need for criminal justice reform, all the more urgent because itcomes from an insider who respects his profession yet is willing to reveal its flaws." -- USA TodayBinding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Matthew Horace, Ron HarrisPublisher: Hachette BooksPublished: 08/07/2018ISBN: 9780316440080Pages: 256Weight: 1.01lbsSize: 9.10h x 6.30w x 1.00dReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 03/15/2018 pg. 76Booklist 06/01/2018 pg. 4Publishers Weekly 06/25/2018Kirkus Reviews 07/01/2018Shelf Awareness 08/14/2018
