                I really have to say... that if this were a production on Audible, I'd listen to it. This is great as a podcast while I work on things.

                                          What they took from this is that professional police are an inherently regressive and militarized militarized organization.

                                                                                            WOW this is interesting!!! they should make a movie about his life ;D it's fascinating like, I guess there's sherlock but this is earlier when policing and justice was very wild west/privatised.. it looks more mafia gangs that the state occasionally bestows legitimacy on than anything else sometimes
