Barry Friedman, the Jacob D. Fuchsberg Professor of Law at New York University School of Law and the director of the Policing Project, joins us to discuss his book, Unwarranted: Policing Without Permission. Friedman looks how how the lives of individuals are affected by invasive policing and the militarization of law enforcement. He also examines how technology has dramatically changed policing over the past few decades. 

Barry Friedman will have a panel discussion with Sherrilyn Ifill on April 26 at 6:30 p.m. at New America (140 West 30th St.).
