"Knock and announce" police raids are on the rise. They are estimated to occur as many as 40 -- 50,000 per year. Back in the 1970s, military-style police raids used to be a rare event, occurring only a few hundred times per year.
What has happened in the last 40 years to cause the increase? Are Americans really behaving that badly? What is the reason for the rise in the use of excessive force by police officers?
Filmmaker Charles Shaw produced a short film titled "Release Us" to expose the harsh reality of the escalating battle between citizens and law enforcement.
Some highlights from the film:
500 innocent Americans are murdered by police every year (USDOJ). 5,000 since 9/11, equal to the number of US soldiers lost in Iraq.
