    Harris argues that the police officer's warrior posture, which he identifies as a feature of police training and acculturation, makes the police unduly likely to use deadly force when patrolling high-gun jurisdictions. Pifer demonstrates that patrol officers struggle to handle their competing roles as agents of care and control. Additionally, Harvey dismisses the possibility of a non-dominative police, recounting his clients' experience of police encounters against a backdrop of racial bias and unregulated police violence.
