A feature documentary about the increasingly militarized state of American police as told through the story of William “Dub” Lawrence, a former sheriff who established and trained his rural state’s first SWAT team only to see that same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later. Driven by an obsessed sense of mission, Dub uses his own investigative skills to uncover the truth in this and other recent officer involved shootings in his community while tackling larger questions about the changing face of peace officers nationwide.

After watching the documentary, respond with a brief reflection essay that addresses police militarization. This should also draw heavily from your readings. You should thoughtfully address three issues: 1) The scale of and reasons for the increase in S.W.A.T. units; 2) The problems with police militarization; and 3) The solutions or remedies you suggest.
Do NOT include the question/prompt, course name, course number, date, title, or any other information in a header. Just start writing your essay on the very first line.
