“The conduct of police in America has come under more scrutiny today than at any other time. There are so many unanswered questions about incidents depicted on the news of police misconduct and police shootings. So often the public is left wondering why there is so much injustice in our justice system. This book will attempt to shed light into the dark truth of wearing a badge in America. It is a first-hand account of a police officer who fought the double standards and unwritten rules that dominate police departments.”
In his book, “American Badge Betrayed,” Robert Alvarez tells a compelling story that touches on the numerous problems the law enforcement community in the United States is facing today. From issues of police brutality and shootings, to institutionalized corruption, his experience sheds a light on how and why many police departments struggle with earning and keeping the respect of their communities.
