Bill Resnick talks with local police scholar Kristian Williams about the dangers of police infiltration of radical social movements, connecting this to State practices for manufacturing terrorists it takes the credit for exposing. Kristian describes the range of ways that police surveil, manipulate, or disrupt organizations. They consider what makes a person vulnerable for being targeted by police, and Kristian also talks about beating back paranoia by learning to trust in our reasonable precautions. They also talk about his recent work for DCSC, a group-blog devoted to "thinking critically about security, surveillance, and counterinsurgency".
