Bill Resnick offers the first part of a three-part interview with Kristian Williams about how to keep police from supporting the far right. Part One focuses on the modern history of police strategies to suppress left insurgent protest, demonstrations, and actions—including attempts at “negotiated management” and “strategic incapacitation.”  Williams’ writings include the books  Our Enemies In Blue: Police and Power in America and  Life During Wartime: Resisting Counterinsurgency
