"Cops, politicians, and ordinary people are afraid of black men. The result is the Chokehold: laws and practices that treat every African American man like a thug. In this explosive new book, an African American former federal prosecutor shows that the system is working exactly the way it's supposed to. Black men are always under watch, and police violence is widespread--all with the support of judges and politicians. In his no-holds-barred style, Butler, whose scholarship has been featured on 60 Minutes, uses new data to demonstrate that white men commit the majority of violent crime in the United States. For example, a white woman is ten times more likely to be raped by a white male acquaintance than be the victim of a violent crime perpetrated by a black man. Butler also frankly discusses the problem of black on black violence and how to keep communities safer--without relying as much on police. Chokehold powerfully demonstrates why current efforts to reform law enforcement will not create lasting change. Butler's controversial recommendations about how to crash the system, and when it's better for a black man to plead guilty--even if he's innocent--are sure to be game-changers in the national debate about policing, criminal justice, and race relations"--… (mer)

This is a meditation, a sonnet, a legal brief, a poetry slam and a dissertation.... It’s a raucous mix, drawing on a range of voices.... One down note in Butler’s presentation is that he doesn’t adequately address how to get more people to care.... “Chokehold” is more than a critique of our justice system. It is a declaration of who we are as a country: We are a people who accept and support a justice system that treats people differently based on race, gender, skin tone, income, neighborhood and education. By the end of the book, it’s clear that Butler is asking, “Are we really okay with this?”
 
...[I]n the most readable and provocative account of the consequences of the war on drugs since Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow,” the law professor and former federal prosecutor Paul Butler argues that our society must be completely remade....
 
[A] searing look at the interactions of law enforcement and black men by a former prosecutor.... Smart, filled rightfully with righteous indignation, and demanding broad discussion and the widest audience.

Chokehold is challenging, and more radical than I would have thought it would be, coming from a former prosecutor.... [H]e's a radical, and will likely be dismissed out of hand by many conservatives and law-and-order types.... But Butler is right on many points. You don't have to join him in embracing critical race theory and the practices and proposals of the movement for black lives to acknowledge that structural racism has been, and to varying degrees still is, a factor in American society.
