I am Radley Balko, writer and investigative journalist for the Huffington Post, and author of the new book "Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America's Police Forces." Ask me anything.
(NOTE: This AMA will begin at 2pm ET.)
In addition to police misconduct and militarization, I've written about prosecutor misconduct, forensics fraud, asset forfeiture abuse, and other issues related to civil liberties and the criminal justice system.

EDIT: Thanks, Reddit, for all the great questions. I've put in two hours, and that question about Nashville barbecue spots reminded me that I need to eat some lunch. If you're interested in learning more, check my blog (www.theagitator.com) for book tour information. Or just buy the book!
