Here's what the Washington Post had to say about Shielded: How the Police Became Untouchable, in Its January 8, 2023 article, "What to Read in 2023":

"In an era of high-profile police misconduct, Schwartz lifts the lid on why cops so often evade accountability. Schwartz, a law professor at UCLA, relies on more than two decades of research to reveal the protections the legal system affords police who ignore the law and violate civil rights. She exposes the biases of Supreme Court decisions and of federal juries, and takes particular aim at qualified immunity, which prevents officers from incurring monetary damages for their abuses."
