Police in America belong to the people! Not the other way!

Not the other way around! Americans experience their Public Servants as racist, brutal, and trigger-happy: an overly aggressive, militarized enemy of the people. For their part, today’s officers feel they are under siege/misunderstood, unfairly criticized, and scapegoated for society’s ills.

Former Seattle Police Chief, Cop of 34 yrs, & Nation Recognized Author NORM STAMPER believes there's a way to FIX LMPD in Louisville!


American policing is in crisis. The last decade witnessed a vast increase in police aggression, misconduct, and militarization, along with a corresponding reduction in transparency and accountability. Nowhere is this more noticeable and painful than in African American and other ethnic minority communities. Racism—from raw, individualized versions to insidious systemic examples—appears to be on the rise in our police departments. Overall, our police officers have grown more and more alienated from the people they’ve been hired to serve. In “TO PROTECT AND SERVE” (A Nation Books hardcover and eBook, Norm Stamper delivers an evolutionary new model for American law enforcement: The community-based police department. It calls for citizen participation in all aspects of police operations: policy-making, program development, crime fighting, service delivery, entry-level, ongoing education, training, oversight of police conduct, and   especially relevant to today’s challenges - joint community-police crisis management. Nothing will ever change until the system itself is radically restructured, and here Norm Stamper shows us how.


NORM STAMPER was a cop for 34 years, a Former Seattle Police Chief, Author of "Breaking Rank: A Top Cop’s Expose of the Dark Side of American Policing", and has written opinion pieces for such publications as The New York Times, The Nation, Time Magazine, The Guardian, & The Los Angeles Times...

  • “A provocative new book…a side [of policing] rarely talked about by the men and women in uniform…. There is a passage in this book that is as powerful as any that I’ve seen or read or even heard about in a long time [about Stamper’s having shot and killed a man who’d been threatening to murder his son]…. Certainly for those African Americans who have been waiting for someone in this country to talk, boldly, about the issues of racism inside police forces…you’ll want to get [the book]…that’s the kind of forthright conversation you get on all sorts of issues… I highly recommend it.”                                   -The Tavis Smiley Show, PBS 
  • Our leaders are bankrupting its criminal justice system, morally and financially. Even as it continues to imprison a disproportionately number of blacks, Latinos, and the poor as documented in Michelle Alexander’s must read - “The new Jim Crow: Mass incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness”. 
  • “Juries have a hard time convicting cops” - Norm Stamper, - “How to fix America’s Police”, Chapter 3, Pg. 38 
  • “If you’re a character challenged cop, the narcotics detail is the place to be. But, you don’t have to be a crooked cop, or working for a crooked agency to build a “money making machine” for your local police department. - “How to fix America’s Police”, Chapter 3, Pg. 39 
  • “Tens of millions of Americans, disproportionately poor and of color, have been incarcerated for low level, non-violent drug offences, their families fractured, their futures jeopardized if not ruined” - get the facts at www.drugwarfacts.org/cms/#stwash.xz1dp7ru.dpbs  
  • “The average cost of incarcerating an inmate; $30,000 to educate a public school student; $11,665 (In CA the contrast is much greater. $62,000 per inmate, $$92,000 per student.” - Kathryn Hensons and Deborah Stipek, “Schools vs Prisons: Education is the way to cut prison population. San Jose Mercury News, June 16th 2014
  •  Whether it’s “empty your pockets” or “you don’t have anything in that coat you don’t want me to see, do you?” Police officers in New York and other cities (like Louisville, KY) across the country use the coerce of their badges, guns and words to conduct questionable if not blatantly illegal searches in order to arrest, in order to “discover these drugs” some cops plant them on innocent people. - “How to fix America’s Police”, Chapter 3, Pg. 39
