Standardized SWAT: How US Police Forces Have Come to Resemble the Military

Play

Radley Balko is an award winning investigative journalist for The Huffington Post, former senior editor for Reason Magazine and IU Alumnus. His new book “Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces” explains how various factors and ill-advised policies have led to the US government arming and training local police forces to be more like a soldier, and less like the traditional concept of a cop. He returned to IU on September 26th, at the request of student Libertarian group Young Americans for Liberty, to speak to a crowd about the militarization of domestic police and his new book. This talk was recorded live-on-location, at Woodburn Hall, for Standing Room Only on WFHB.
