#49: Why Policing Without Permission Is Everyone's Fault


The last few years have exposed problems in policing: use of force, high-tech surveillance, and a lack of transparency. Our guest argues that the fault for this lies not just with the police, or the courts – it’s on us.

Barry Friedman is a Professor of Law and director of the Policing Project at New York University Law School. He says America systematically created a norm of undemocratic policing, and he has powerful arguments about how this hurts us as citizens and as a country. He’s also ready with sharp suggestions for how we can begin to fix things.
