Radley Balko

May 01, 2014

Radley Balko is your one-stop shop for a civil libertarian perspective on the American criminal justice system. Author of the book Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces, Balko is a consistent watchdog who rails against abuses and overreach by law enforcement with a blend of frothing outrage and dry humor. And sometimes he just posts funny hashtag-picture combinations. —Denver Nicks
