about

The recorded use of deadly force against unarmed suspects and sustained protest from the Black Lives Matter movement, among others, have ignited a national debate about excessive violence in American policing. This cover design uses yellow warning tape indicative of crime scenes to block out a bottle of steroids. The colors also reference the black and blue often associated with the police.
