ABOUT THE BOOK:
This book’s radical theory of police argues that the police demand for order is a class order and a racialized and patriarchal order, by arguing that the institution of policing, in order to fabricate and defend capitalist order, must patrol an imaginary line between society and nature and transform nature into inert matter made available for accumulation. The thin blue line doesn’t just refer to a social order, rather police announce a general claim to domination— of labor and of nature..
