Siinviidatud vabelevis oleva teksti vastu võiks huvi olla kõikidel, kes tegutsevad siseturvalisuse valdkonnas. Eriti teraselt võiks lugeda politseijuhid ja poliitikakujundajad, sest siinviidatu kajastab otsustusvaldkondi, mis tegelevad nii turvalisuse kui politseiprofessiooni arengutega.

From the 2020 murder of George Floyd in Minnesota to the 2021 Vigil for Sarah Everard in London, police lost legitimacy for over-policing, defined as causing harm disproportionate to the harm they were trying to prevent.
