Description

Violent crime has been rising sharply in many American cities after two decades of decline. Homicides jumped nearly 17 percent in 2015 in the largest 50 cities, the biggest one-year increase since 1993. The reason is what Heather Mac Donald first identified nationally as the "Ferguson effect": Since the 2014 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, officers have been backing off of proactive policing, and criminals are becoming emboldened. This book expands on Mac Donald's groundbreaking reporting on the Ferguson effect. It deconstructs the central narrative of the Black Lives Matter movement: that racist cops are the greatest threat to young black males.

The War on Cops exposes the truth about officer use of force and explodes the conceit of "mass incarceration". A rigorous analysis of data shows that crime, not race, drives police actions and prison rates. The growth of proactive policing in the 1990s, along with lengthened sentences for violent crime, saved thousands of minority lives. In fact, Mac Donald argues, no government agency is more dedicated to the proposition that "black lives matter" than today's data-driven, accountable police department.

LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!!!

Using pertinent data and sound argumentation, Heather MacDonald has delivered an urgent, reality-based message on a topic that is often presented in misleading, manipulative ways. It deserves a broad hearing, and the author's recommendations should be carefully and seriously considered... by journalists, politicians, and citizens who want to be well informed before deciding how to act (and vote!) responsibly.

What The News Should Report

An incredibly well researched book which explores all aspects of events. True journalism that the media should take notes on. Provides factual accounts of police shootings, explores causes, provides ideas on how to correct issues, and depicts the consequences of limiting police.

Predictions Coming True

Great book. Interesting what MS. McDonald suggested in 2015-16, we would see in 2019. This book will be in my cart to hear again.

Good information to have

Gives a insightful, if not cringe worthy insight on the challenges law enforcement face daily.

Enlightening and informative

The dangerous lies of a broken/racist justice system is making everyone less safe. This book details this topic in great depth and provides a great counter argument to those who state otherwise. Mac Donald critiques the false narratives and also looks into ideas that have historical and statistical backing for their efficacy. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!

War on cops or Black lives matter

Living on the other side of the Atlantic, never having visited other places than New York, Washington and Florida, I wonder who’s right - are the police unjustly targeted by activists and liberals, whose misguided ideals and political ideas inevitably lead to and will lead to, again, high crime rates, or are blacks targeted by police due to systemic racism?
Mac Donald makes a strong case for the former in this book.
At the end she airs one interesting suggestion about making punishment less severe, but more certain, if you are about to do some thrilling, tempting misdemeanor, detection should be certain, while then people wouldn’t do it, as a species we have a short termed horizon, and we can easily be tempted to ‘cheat’ if it’s without consequences. This strategy reminded me of Hamilton’s classic ‘The Evolution of Cooperation’ where the most effective strategy in a tournament, where they played ‘Prisoners Dilemma’, a classic zero-sum-game, was tic-for-tac. It’s a from the outset cooperating strategy, but by defection, punishment is certain, yet by return to cooperation, it’s fore giving.
