The author makes some ...

The author makes some compelling arguments about the need for more proactive policing, especially in high crime areas, such as inner cities. She discusses how law-abiding citizens in these areas actually desire more aggressive police involvement because the result is that crime decreases, they feel safer in their neighborhoods so they can leave their homes to do what they need to without fear, and more businesses become attracted to those areas because they do not need to worry about the safety of the employees or patrons. The author looks at statistics quoted to support the position that such proactive policing is racially biased, but she interprets these statistics with different results, something that reflects how statistics can be interpreted in numerous ways. I found her book to be a thoughtful look at some difficult issues that need to be addressed more successfully than what we are now doing.
