Chokehold: Policing Black Men

by Paul Butler

Sep 18, 2018


In the ongoing battle against systemic racism within America's criminal justice system, Paul Butler's seminal work, "Chokehold: Policing Black Men," serves as a beacon of insight and a call to action. Published amid a turbulent landscape of racial tension and police brutality, Butler's book unveils the pervasive nature of the "chokehold" – a metaphorical grip that ensnares African American men within a web of discrimination and suspicion. Drawing from his

 experiences as a former federal prosecutor, Butler exposes how laws and practices systematically target and marginalize Black men, perpetuating cycles of injustice and oppression.

For the American Justice Project, Butler's analysis strikes at the heart of their mission. AJP endeavors to end the chokehold. From advocating for policy reforms to providing relief for individuals harmed by pretrial injustices, AJP's multifaceted approach aligns with Butler's vision of challenging the status quo and fostering lasting change.

In the struggle against systemic oppression, "Chokehold: Policing Black Men" serves as a rallying cry for change and is a necessary read for those looking to make change.
