- What are you seeking to accomplish with this book?
- Your book advocates that persons convicted of sexually assaulting children should be imprisoned for life: why is that not cruel and unusual?
- Overturning Supreme Court decision Mapp v OH and vitiating the “Exclusionary Rule”…why would that not encourage rampant police misconduct?
- Can you defend your assertion that three months of Marine Corps basic training better prepared you for policing than six months in the Police Academy?
- Give us an example of why you believe this nation’s War on Drugs is insincere.
