Year 16, Book 16

16. We Own This City: A True Story of Crime, Cops and Corruption in an American City by Justin Fenton

The true story of an elite police unit in Baltimore known as the Gun Trace Task Force, which spent years ripping off drug dealers and setting people up for crimes they didn’t commit. Since I live in Baltimore I knew a lot about this going into the book, but I also was excited to read it because Justin Fenton is one of my favorite reporters from the Baltimore Sun. It was a really engaging read that just highlights why the mistrust of police in Baltimore is so high. I definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in crime books or books about policing. I give it a 9 out of 10.
