Thin Blue Lie by Matt Stroud


Postindustrial Media co-founder Matt Stroud’s book “Thin Blue Lie: The Failure of High-Tech Policing” is a vivid, deeply-reported book that shows how many police weapons and hi-tech tools are overhyped and, in many cases, ineffective. Instead of wrestling with tough fundamental questions about their work, police leaders have looked to technology as a silver bullet and stood by as corporate interests have insinuated themselves ever deeper into the public institution of law enforcement. With a sweeping history of these changes, Thin Blue Lie is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand how policing became what it is today.
