Promotional Information

The facts are disturbing: Every year in the United States, SWAT teams conduct predawn, no-knock raids of at least 50,000 homes looking for drugs. Unfortunately, a substantial percentage of these assaults occur at the wrong addresses. And law-abiding citizens who mistakenly kill SWAT officers thinking they are criminal home invaders often end up on death row.

Reviews

"Fisher ... offers a powerful work that takes up the cause for society and law enforcement to conduct a realistic, rational assessment of the proliferation and expanded use of special weapons and tactics (SWAT) teams. ...This very nice scholarly work, well researched and supported with factual, albeit occasionally sarcastic, commentary, is well suited for criminal justice and especially public issues collections. ...Recommended." - Choice
