Government trusters occasionally criticize policing, but offer no realistic remedy

Years ago, I authored one of the most widely read law review articles on the abuses and unconstitutionality of modern policing, “Are Cops Constitutional?” I have received praise for years from a variety of anti-police-brutality writers and organizations. But many movements aimed at stopping police criminality and abuses offer pointless solutions. One commonly suggested remedy …
