De-Policing America: A Street Cop’s View of the Anti-Police State

“De-policing” isn’t about police apathy—it’s about leftist antipathy toward the police. It’s the phenomenon where cops avoid pro-active patrol.

 

Anti-police groups have fabricated a myth that cops are wantonly slaughtering innocent minorities. Why, despite evidence exonerating officers of wrongdoing, does anti-police fervor too often flare into violence? Cops and society’s confusion about police work have collided as progressives try to replace equal justice for all with social justice for some.

 

As a retired cop, Steve Pomper has dealt with this subject repeatedly in what has become one of the most protest-ridden cities in America: Seattle. De-Policing America is one street cop’s view of the destructive effects of social justice indoctrination and the demonization of law enforcement today.

“A brilliant genre-buster.... Propulsive, can’t-stop-now reading.”   —Stephen King

For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area.

Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was.

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Utterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic—one which fulfilled Michelle's dream: helping unmask the Golden State Killer.
