The End of Policing with Alex S. Vitale and Kassandra Frederique

This book reveals the tainted origins of modern policing as a tool of social control and demonstrates how the expanded role of the police is inconsistent with community empowerment, social justice—even public safety. Alex Vitale and guests Kassandra Frederique (of the Drug Policy Alliance) and Victoria Law (author of Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women) will discuss how the implementation of alternatives to policing, like drug legalization, regulation, and harm reduction instead of the policing of drugs, has led to reductions in crime, spending, and injustice.
