Occupy Radio: Rise of the Warrior Cop, with Radley Balko
It started with the US military passing around old armored vehicles and military gear, then, after 911, Homeland Security upped the ante and started offering grants for new military gear for domestic police forces. Now, welcome to the Police Industrial Complex.
Radley Balko, author of the “Rise of the Warrior Cop,” talks with Rivera Sun and Getch about the militarization of America's police forces, this week, on Occupy Radio.
Book review by former Occupy Radio guest Bruce Schneier:
Rivera Sun: “Meet Me At the Bill of Rights:” America's Common Ground. http://www.risingsundancetheater.com/wpblog/?p=557
Author/Actress Rivera Sun sings the anthem of our times and rallies us to meet adversity with gusto. In addition to The Dandelion Insurrection, she is the author of nine plays, a book of poetry, and her debut novel, Steam Drills, Treadmills, and Shooting Stars, which celebrates everyday heroes who meet the challenges of climate change with compassion, spirit, and strength. www.risingsundancetheater.com/wpblog/
David Geitgey Sierralupe prefers you call him Getch. As Dr. Seuss once noted, there are way too many Daves. When not plotting to Occupy the Media through an activist, internet media hub, Getch writes about himself in third person, and remodels homes in Eugene, Oregon.
