"Capponi proves an intelligent and compassionate observer, especially when chronicling the experiences of minorities within the police culture...This is terrific stuff."

With an in-depth look at different approaches to the job and a variety of perceptions of policing, Capponi exposes a system that is flawed, promising and deeply human.
