Quoted in Governing Magazine

Fabio Rojas and I were quoted in Governing magazine in an article about protest policing, titled “As Protests Escalate Under Trump, States Seek New Ways to Deter Them.” “Police are trained in how to deal with riots,” says Michael Heaney, a University of Michigan sociologist and, with Rojas, co-author of Party in the Street: The Antiwar Movement and the Democratic Party after 9/11. “When they see a large group of people, they tend to treat it as a riot.”
