Under the Thumb

Stories of Police Oppression
An anthology of stories edited by

Say their names:

Sandra Bland.

Philando Castile.

Daniel Shaver.

George Floyd.

And too many others.

They died, the victims of a justice system which, for many people in our country and around the world, is seldom just.

In this anthology, our authors explore the darker side of the badge, where a traffic stop can go one of two ways—bad or worse. Where evidence can and will be forged. Where the Blue Wall of Silence closes ranks, and accountability becomes a four-letter word.

At the end, you’ll wonder—is the system broken? Or more chillingly, is it operating just the way it was always intended, and are we meant to live our lives Under the Thumb?
