Description

Downtown White Police: Demonizing the Alpha Cop, Glorifying Thugs, and Militarizing Law Enforcement is a take-no-prisoners expose of the forces at work in American society that are leading us down the dangerous path to a militarized police force. Former police officer James Lancia excuses no one for what is happening in the nation today. Rather, through a riveting blend of real-life cop stories and social and political analysis, he explains the situation like only an insider can. Downtown White Police discloses not only the disturbing fact that our police are becoming militarized, but also explains why this troubling trend is happening-and why it has little to do with race. What's more, Lancia reveals how the media, the entertainment industry, politicians, and social justice advocates are shamelessly hyping the news and creating a false paradigm that demonizes the alpha cop and glorifies the criminals in order to fundamentally change law enforcement into an agent of the federal government. Whether you're concerned about your own safety or about the future of our democracy, your eyes will be opened to the reality of crime and the need for citizens to act in order to preserve our civil liberties-before its too late.show more

About James Lancia

James Lancia is a retired police officer who worked closely with the FBI, DEA, ATF, and Statewide Narcotics Agency as a patrolman in the Bridgeport Police Department in Connecticut during the country's high-crime crack epidemic. His beat included the sixth largest housing project in the nation, rated the worst in the country according to FBI statistics. Since retiring, he has used his skills in boxing, kickboxing, and weightlifting to train boxers, and for a short time, along with a former colleague, he worked closely with Kevin Rooney, former trainer of world champion Mike Tyson. He is now a military artist, painting museum pieces for the French Foreign Legion. His work has been featured in the French Foreign Legion Headquarters Museum in Aubagne, France. His historical military artwork has also been featured at West Point and in various other US museums and magazines.show more
