These essays serve as a powerful reminder to those who uncritically consider racial policing as happenstance, accidental, or the product of a few rogue police officers. Together, they offer us a panoramic view of the intersections between law, race, social movements, and the science infiltrating our deep critiques of how “the way things are” is simply more of the way they have always been.
