"The Black and the Blue:" An Insider's View on Policing in America

Dec 3, 2018

Today on Midday, Tom talks with the co-authors of the new book, "The Black and The Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America's Law Enforcement."

Former cop Matthew Horace gives readers an inside view of police tactics and police culture. Horace worked in federal, state and local law enforcement for 28 years, including more than two decades with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). He was based in Baltimore for some of that time, where he served as an ATF Violent Crime Supervisor.

Ron Harris is the co-author of the new book.  He’s a former reporter and editor at the Los Angeles Times and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
