Use of deadly force to protect society is the dark side of maintaining law and order. There comes a point when the mere presence of a uniform or a badge is not enough to force a violent person to stand down. To back away and allow police to do their job.

Police officers are not mind readers. The person they meet on the street might be a law-abiding citizen or a law-breaking criminal. Those they meet might be blinded by drugs, harbor a deep fear of going back to prison, or might be a violence-prone patient just released from a state mental hospital.

And an officer might only have a second to decide between life and death.

Join us on Hook'em & Book'em as Senior Investigator Brian Davis of the Sonoma County (CA) District Attorney's Office gives us an inside look at officer-involved shooting investigations.
