Get a deeper understanding of police shootings through interviews with officers involved in real-life cases Today’s media is filled with discussions about officer-involved shootings. Too often missing from that discussion are the police officers’ voices and the reality of what happens in actual shooting incidents. Through actual interviews with involved officers, this book addresses common myths and misunderstandings about these shootings. Shots Fired is a journey “behind the shield” and the experiences of the real human beings behind the badge. It explores true events through the participants’ own eyes and takes readers inside the minds of officers during the actual event. The officers detail the roller coaster of emotions and severe trauma experienced during and after a shooting event. Along with the intimate, in-depth explorations of the incidents themselves, the book touches the aftermath of police-involved shootings—the debriefings, internal and external investigations, and psychological evaluations. It challenges many commonly held assumptions created by the media such as the meaning of “unarmed” and why the police can’t just “shoot him in the leg,” creating an understanding that reaches beyond slogans such as “hands up, don’t shoot.” The book is valuable reading for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of police shootings—officers and police departments, reporters and politicians, and the public who rely on the police to keep them safe.

Anti-police media propaganda has created a perception of police shootings that is very different than reality. Most civilians have never been in a life or death fight, so they are left with Hollywood and media fiction to educate them about law enforcement altercations. The psychology behind officer involved shootings is missing from the public narrative. What occurs in the officer¿s head, before, during, and after the shooting is the story that is rarely told.In twelve exciting, real-life accounts, you will discover that police shootings are extremely complicated and the consequences are far greater than most can ever imagine.This book shares the story that officers do not get to tell and it will prepare those who have not yet been forced to pull the trigger.

For the better part of the last half century, the United States has been the World's Police, claiming to defend ideologies, allies, and our national security through brute force. But is military action always the most appropriate response? Drawing on his vast experience, from combat in Vietnam to peacekeeping in Somalia, to war games in Washington, DC and negotiations with former rebels in the Philippines, retired four-star General Tony Zinni argues that we have a lot of work to do to make the process of going to war—or not—more clear-eyed and ultimately successful. He examines the relationship between the executive and the military (including the difference between passive and engaged presidents); the failures of the Joint Chief of Staff; the challenges of working with the UN, coalition forces, and NATO; the difference between young, on the ground officers and less savvy senior leaders; the role of special forces and drone warfare; and the difficult choices that need to be made to create tomorrow's military. Among his provocative points: * Virtually every recent American military operation follows a disconnected series of actions that lead to outcomes we never foresaw or intended. * We need to assign accountability for the political decisions that can make or break a mission. * Words and ideas are as important to victory in today's conflicts as bullets. * The cyber "war" is ongoing. Either you must build better tech than the other guy, or you must steal it. * Our foreign aid budget is pitiful, our State Department, USAID, and the other government agencies that we critically need to be on a par with our military are underfunded, undermanned, and poorly structured for their current objectives.From the Oval Office to the battlefield, Before the First Shots Are Fired is a hard-hitting analysis of the history of America's use of military action and a spirited call for change.

Kyla can't believe her partner Echo is having an affair, but the police believe a love triangle is motive for murder. Detective Pat Silverton, investigating the shooting, is not convinced by her partner Tom Magnell's theory, but she concedes her attraction to the other woman in their suspect's love triangle could be clouding her judgmentÑsexy, hotheaded Jenny Vasquez could tempt anyone. But would a woman kill to be with her? Or could Jenny be the shooter? The more Kyla learns, the less certain she feels about everythingÑher partner's love, her own choices, and her safety. Caught between renewed passion for the woman she fell in love with years ago and the mounting evidence of betrayal, Kyla must decide whether to trust her heart or her mind. The stakes donÕt get any higher: someone is still trying to kill her and she has no idea why.

Police work is a very unique occupation. There is no other job that you can actually compare to it. First responders and firemen are often compared to what police officers experience. However, let me try to explain some of the differences. There are similarities, but often, police officers face a different set of circumstances a lot of the time. Police officers wear a variety of different "hats." For instance, when was the last time you saw a first responder or a fireman settle a domestic disturbance (chaplain's hat)? When was the last time you saw a first responder or a fireman in a fight with a criminal (police hat)? When was the last time you saw a first responder or a fireman standing against a riot (policeman's hat again)? When was the last time you saw a first responder or a fireman enter a business during a reported armed robbery (policeman's hat yet again)? You get the picture, I'm sure. Have you ever wanted to be a police officer? Would you rather watch it on TV? Would you like to accompany him/her on road patrol or while a detective investigates the death of someone? Or would you like to attend an autopsy of a seven-year-old boy who was beaten to death by his stepfather? Well, I am inviting you to read about these and more, which are true and as accurate to the way it really happened as to the very best of my memory. There are newspaper articles that verify nearly every one of those events. I only hope you will enjoy your ride.

The 1970's was the deadliest decade in modern law enforcement history and more police officers died than during any other decade of the 20th Century. In Fort Lauderdale, the "Venice of America," violent crime was almost out of control and to stem this vic
