Street Justice by Marilynn S. Johnson
Book DescriptionThis book shows how the history of police brutality affects understandings of police behaviour in minority communities. Street Justice traces police brutality cases in NYC and the anti-brutality movements that sought to eradicate it, from the years after the Civil War through the 1960s. Johnson's main argument is that the idea of police brutality is historically constructed and that the culture of policing can be changed when enough political pressure is brought to bear on the problem.
