About

Overview

How rough is too rough? Rodney King is an unfamiliar name for those growing up today, but the ongoing conversation concerning police brutality is one they know all-too well. This collection deep-dives into police training procedure, what constitutes excessive force, and what happens when the community disagrees with the police and the justice system. Relevant topics covered in this balanced anthology include the 1992 L.A. riots and the 2014 outcry in Ferguson, MO, as well as the choking death of Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY.
