Former Seattle, WA, Chief of Police and author Norm Stamper, will be a guest on ìGreater Bostonî with host Emily Rooney on Boston, Massachusetts’ PBS station WGBH-TV Channel 2. Norm will be discussing his recent Op-Ed in the LA Times calling for the end of the war on drugs. Norm is currently receiving rave reviews for his new book “Breaking Rank: A Top Cop’s ExposÈ of the Dark Side of American Policing”. In this book, Norm introduces us to the violent, secret world of domestic abuse that cops must not only navigate, but which some also perpetrate. He goes on to expose a troubling culture of racism, sexism, and homophobia that is still pervasive within the 21st century force, exploring how such prejudices can be addressed. He reveals the dangers and temptations that cops on the street face, describing in gripping detail their split second life-and-death decisions.
