Summary, etc.:
Within recent years, the formerly bright line separating U.S. military operations from domestic police work has become increasingly blurred. From Waco to the WTO protests, weaponry and tactics once reserved for the battlefield have been used in police operations on U.S. soil. "Urban Warrior" investigates the debate over the use of military tactics in law enforcement, and looks at the impact this trend is having on American civil liberties.
