July 8, 2013
Radley Balko, a senior writer and investigative reporter for the Huffington Post, has published an excerpt of his new book “Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces” in Salon, and the stories are frightening.
It begins with one about a detective who befriended a man named Sal Culosi so that he could investigate him for gambling.
Culosi liked to bet on football games with his friends, and the detective encouraged him to raise the stakes to the point in which they bet more than $2,000 in a single day.
