Radley Balko Around Town This Week


Just a reminder, I'll speaking at a forum at Cato on no-knock raids this Thursday at 4pm. Co-panelists include Berwyn Heights, Maryland, Mayor Cheye Calvo and Peter Christ of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. A few commenters have asked why no one taking the pro-hyper-militarized police position will be speaking. As I understand it, several possible candidates were invited, but none accepted. I've actually sought out several opportunities to debate this issue in the past, and had similar problems finding opponents.

Also, I'll be doing a live chat at the Art of the Possible blog Wednesday evening at 7pm ET
