Force is not just what comes out of the barrel of a police officer’s gun. It certainly is that, but it also takes many other forms: intimidation; arbitrary actions that criminalize or harass ordinary people, especially if they are Black, brown, Indigenous or poor; use of the collective power of unions and professional associations to resist local and provincial efforts to change or modernize policing; ability to escape or avoid accountability when there has been wrongdoing. The list goes on.
