Radley Balko is a 39-year-old writer and editor living in Nashville, Tennessee. Currently, he is a writer, investigative reporter, and blogger who covers civil liberties and the criminal justice system for the Washington Post.

Prior to that, he covered the same beat for the Huffington PostReason magazine, and as a policy analyst for the Cato Institute. He also writes about music and culture in Nashville.

Balko's 2013 book Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces has received praise from numerous critics and media outlets, including the New Yorker, the EconomistPublishers WeeklyKirkus, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Journal of Books.
