SUMMARY: Although on the long side this article has it all. It is a fantastic starting point to learn about policing history, what police reforms to advocate for along with a personal story that ties it all together.

KEY QUOTE: “We are in desperate need of reasoned public conversation about policing in America, complete with concrete proposals and the political will to ensure that those proposals are implemented. This is in reach. It’s real.”
