This issue of Social Justice examines the historical roots of recent forms of domestic spying and the fear campaigns that justify such programs -- as well as the wars on crime, drugs, and terror. Authors look at how globalization affects policing practices in the United States, including the policing of protest and of inner-city youth, with the associated scandals and abuse. Articles consider activist responses to paramilitary policing of peaceful protest and to anti-gang units. Finally, the issue explores the forces behind the push to try juveniles in adult criminal courts.
