O.I.S. After the Trigger's Pulled
by Lt Jim Byler




Overview -
Police officer shootings dominate the headlines on an almost daily basis. Go beyond the superficial reporting, and find out what really happens when an officer makes the ultimate decision to use deadly force. After The Trigger's Pulled tells the story of one law enforcement family, a father and his two sons, who stunningly have found themselves in life and death situations. In order to survive a deadly encounter, each one had to point their guns at another human being and pull the trigger. And it was never easy, or something they ever wanted to do. Joseph Wambaugh has said that police work is the most emotionally dangerous work on earth. After The Trigger's Pulled is that rare book that pulls back the curtain and reveals the emotional toll taken by that work on a family of law enforcement professionals. Each true story is told in gripping, white-knuckle detail, and puts you directly in the shoes of a police officer faced with a split-second decision that will change his life forever. Jim's Story "And then I heard it. The unmistakable sound of a shotgun being racked. And then another one. I was hit with near-blinding light from police flashlights, but was still able to make out the silhouettes of officers taking cover behind their patrol car doors... All weapons pointed directly at me..." Brandon's Story "Brandon stood over him, holding the shotgun in his left hand and his now empty handgun in his right. He stood there in stunned disbelief at how a routine call had escalated into a violent confrontation in a matter of seconds. The stench emanating from the house, mixed with the smell of gunpowder and blood, was almost overwhelming." Brett's Story "Brett desperately wanted to stay with Jeff, but the danger still presented by Bogard was paramount. As Brett rushed towards the suspended vehicle, the door suddenly opened. Bogard climbed out and dropped to the ground. He stood and faced Brett like a raging bull. If the bull charged, Brett was prepared to shoot again..." What's it like to confront a vicious street criminal, who attacks without remorse or conscience? To come face-to-face with a shotgun-wielding domestic violence suspect? Or to see your beat partner crushed and bleeding at your feet, as you confront a deranged suspect hell-bent on destruction? Both riveting and inspiring, this book will be a revelation, especially for those who are in a position to shape public debate and affect change. Open your hearts and minds, and take the emotional journey with one law enforcement family dedicated to serving their communities. And along the way, find out what really happens before, during and after the trigger is pulled.
