What is it like to be shot? Stabbed? Watch fellow cops bleed to death at your feet? Kill someone before they can add you to the long list of dead police officers? And live with the knowledge that you have taken a life? In his provocative new book, Voices From the Kill Zone, Professor David Klinger answers all these questions, and tells us much, much, more about what itâs like to inhabit the violent world of policing. Professor Klinger, a former cop who killed a violent criminal when he worked the mean streets of Los Angeles in the 1980s, uses first person accounts he collected from other officers who have shot people in the line of duty to provide a penetrating look at the role that extreme violence plays in police work.
