Empowered By The Uniform
A critical and timely commentary on police activity and the scourge of racism in society, Empowered by the Uniform is a shocking, heartbreaking, yet hopeful examination of the justice system as often experienced by new and Indigenous Canadians. Ismon Marroquin draws on personal experience and documented cases to develop an argument for change in Canada's police forces and courts of justice.

Mr. Marroquin chronicles examples of police brutality, wrongful conviction, and the exoneration of criminal activities against the backdrop of a multicultural society. Far from a general condemnation of law enforcement, however, his purpose is to restore respect and dignity, which many police officers bring to their work, to Canada's justice system overall. His optimism and love for his adopted country are contagious as readers see his heart throughout the narrative.

Through the voices of real Canadians who have suffered under their country's system of justice, readers will gain new insight and understanding of an issue that can no longer be ignored. This honest and transparent look at the discrimination faced by many Canadians will be a catalyst for conversation and eventual change, as together citizens and police officers alike demand true equality under the law for all people.
