Every day, the police kill someone in America.  But in the last several years, widespread anger about police violence had led many to take to the streets — and the prevailing model of policing, known as broken windows, seems to be in crisis.  What will replace it?  And how should we understand the role that police play in maintaining the social order?  Radical scholar Christina Heatherton discusses policing, neoliberal capitalism, and resistance.
