A unique book, and a unique post-apocalyptic setting. The author is not afraid to kill off a well liked character, or paint a vivid, horrible picture. Cleaning as a punishment takes on a completely new level in the Silo. The book reveals its secrets at a nice pace, always leaving me wanting more.
The conspiracy theory and power grabbing by a group of characters was so well described, it seemed like the author has had first hand knowledge of the situation.
Chances are somewhere in America today, a SWAT team will arrive at a private residence. They'll throw flash-bang grenades and kick in the door; they'll force occupants to the floor at gunpoint and start tearing the place apart. They're will be profanity and screaming. They may kill the family dog, pitbull or poodle. And if they don't find anything, or it turns out they came to the wrong address, too bad. You're not going to get an apology.
This is the state of policing in America in 2013, says Radley Balko in his new book "Rise of the Warrior Cop." Across the country, law enforcement is turning to SWAT team and other specalized units not for their original purpose of providing rapid response to hostage situations and standoffs, but to serve drug warrants, enforce regulatory issues, and quell political dissent. Police are rapidly accumulating military weapons, armored vehicles, military-style uniforms and an "us against them" attitude that has resulted in wrongful arrests, property damage, injuries, and even deaths.
While many people have become aware of the militarization of law enforcement since 2001, Balko shows this process began in earnest about 40 years ago, when Richard Nixon decided to exploit the white, middle-class Silent Majority's fears of increasing drug use and crime. The "drug war' and now the "war on terror" has led to a steady erosion of our Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure and the "Castle Doctrine," the idea that we are safe from government intrusion in our homes without serious cause.
Balko traces this history from the roots of the Castle Doctrine in British common law right up into the present day. He looks at the shift in mentality from the community policing model to the military model, where the very citizens the police are sworn to protect become potential threats to be approached with lethal force. He also shows the reality of "mission creep," where there very fact that you have SWAT team - or a tank - means you really want to use them, even in situations where it shouldn't be used. He ends with some commonsense recommendations for change - even as he admits none of them are likely to come to pass in the current political climate.
It's enlightening, it's frightening, and it's something every American should take the time to read.
I had the DC35 for about a week and struggled with it on hardwood floors in our kitchen. The newer motorized brush design on the DC44 is a big improvement. Aside from more power, it also has improved rollers and a more elaborate auto-height adjustment (it finally works). The DC44 is now "just enough" power for our downstairs needs that we can FINALLY leave our DC40 upstairs w/ the carpets. No more lugging either machine up and down the staircase!
So, i never review books. I read them on my kindle & i hate typing on this thing (hence the lack of caps). But, i couldn't let this go by without telling people how great it is! And let me add, I'm not a huge sci-fi reader. This book had me completely hooked from the first chapter. Lots of twists, lots of unexpected turns, i couldn't put it down. Can't wait to read the rest!!
