Down, Out, and under Arrest by Forrest Stuart
Publication Date: 2016
In his first year working in Los Angeles's Skid Row, Forrest Stuart was stopped on the street by police fourteen times. Usually for doing little more than standing there. At a time when distrust between police and the residents of disadvantaged neighborhoods has never been higher, Stuart's book looks at the hows and whys of how we spend more on policing and prisons while cutting support for our poorest citizens.
