    When four New York City police officers killed Amadou Diallo in 1999, the forty-one shots they fired echoed loudly across the nation. In death, Diallo joined a long list of young men of color killed by police in cities & towns all across America. Innuendos of criminality implicitly discredited many of these victims & falsely held them responsible for their own deaths. Diallo was an innocent, a young WestAfrican immigrant doing nothing more suspicious than returning home to his Bronx apartment after working all day. This book offers an oral history of Diallo's death.

    Alphabet City in 1988 burned with heroin, radicalism, and anti-police sentiment. Working as a plainsclothes narcotics cop in the most high-voltage neighborhood in Manhattan, Detective Sergeant Mike Codella earned the nickname Rambo from the local dealers, as well as a $50,000 bounty on his head. The son of a cop who grew up in a Mob neighborhood in Brooklyn, Codella understood the unwritten laws of the shadowy businesses that rule the streets. He knew that the farther east you got from the relative safety of 5th Avenue, Washington Square Park, and NYU, the deeper you entered the sea of human misery, greed, addiction, violence, and all the things that come with an illegal retail drug trade run wild. Codella made it his personal mission to put away Davey Blue Eyes - a stone-cold murderer and the head oif Alphabet City's heroin supply chain. Despite the hell they endured - all the beatings and gunshots, the foot chases and close calls - Codella and hse partner Gio always saw Alphabet City the same way: worth saving. 304p.

  • Apprehensions & Convictions: Adventures of a 50-Year-Old Rookie Cop

    What makes a fifty-year-old man quit a highly successful career in charity work to take on the low-paid, dangerous job of being a police officer? When Mark Johnson left the United Way to become the oldest rookie in the Mobile, Alabama, police department, he didn’t just have to adjust to a new career—he had to adjust to an entirely new life of danger, violence, and stark moral choices.“Apprehensions and Convictions” is Johnson’s explosive memoir of his second career as a cop. Going from fund-raising with socialites to confronting armed suspects in the streets, Johnson found that poverty and crime were no longer social issues but matters of life and death. A civilized man whose first instinct is to help people in trouble, Johnson learned that some men can only be subdued with brute force and some chronic criminals refuse to be redeemed. Defying the skepticism of his wife, the derision of the younger cops who called him “Pawpaw,” and his own self-doubts, Johnson rose to become a detective and a highly decorated officer.“Apprehensions and Convictions” also tells a personal story of how Johnson overcame his own demons to find a new sense of purpose and identity in midlife. From a troubled drink- and drug-fueled youth, to dealing with both his birth and adoptive parents, to struggling to find a steady career path, Johnson’s story is of a man who found his courage and changed himself.An intense, sweeping narrative that explores the frustrations of an overprivileged youth, delves deeply into the dysfunction of the Mobile ghetto, and ends with an armed standoff between Johnson and an escaped cop-killer, “Apprehensions and Convictions” is a compelling new memoir of a remarkable life.

    False charges of racial profiling threaten to obliterate the crime-fighting gains of the last decade, especially in America's inner cities. This is the message of Heather Mac Donald's new book, in which she brings her special brand of tough and honest journalism to the current war against the police. The anti-profiling crusade, she charges, thrives on an ignorance of policing and a willful blindness to the demographics of crime. In careful reports from New York and other major cities across the country, Ms. Mac Donald investigates the workings of the police, the controversy over racial profiling, and the anti-profiling lobby's harmful effects on black Americans.
