To serve and protect

The last few years have seen the relationship between American citizens and American police grow increasingly strained. The main reason has been the many unprovoked killings of black men, which in turn have highlighted a host of problematic attitudes and practices within police departments. DO NOT RESIST offers another perspective on this troubling development, as it documents the increasing militarization of the American police force, which started with the federal government and its partners in the military-industrial complex.
