The War on Cops exposes the truth about officer use of force and explodes the conceit of "mass incarceration". A rigorous analysis of data shows that crime, not race, drives police actions and prison rates. The growth of proactive policing in the 1990s, along with lengthened sentences for violent crime, saved thousands of minority lives. In fact, Mac Donald argues, no government agency is more dedicated to the proposition that "black lives matter" than today's data-driven, accountable police department.

War on cops or Black lives matter
Living on the other side of the Atlantic, never having visited other places than New York, Washington and Florida, I wonder who’s right - are the police unjustly targeted by activists and liberals, whose misguided ideals and political ideas inevitably lead to and will lead to, again, high crime rates, or are blacks targeted by police due to systemic racism?
Mac Donald makes a strong case for the former in this book.
At the end she airs one interesting suggestion about making punishment less severe, but more certain, if you are about to do some thrilling, tempting misdemeanor, detection should be certain, while then people wouldn’t do it, as a species we have a short termed horizon, and we can easily be tempted to ‘cheat’ if it’s without consequences. This strategy reminded me of Hamilton’s classic ‘The Evolution of Cooperation’ where the most effective strategy in a tournament, where they played ‘Prisoners Dilemma’, a classic zero-sum-game, was tic-for-tac. It’s a from the outset cooperating strategy, but by defection, punishment is certain, yet by return to cooperation, it’s fore giving.
