In 2015, The Washington Post launched an unprecedented effort to account for every fatal shooting by an officer of the law. Their study has motivated the FBI to action, and changed the way we think of those who serve and protect. After a police officer shot and killed a black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, the media began to pay greater attention to deadly interactions between black men and the law. But when reporters tried to get to the bottom of some basic questions—how often do police shoot people? Who are the victims? Are officers ever charged with crimes?—they came up blank. Police departments were not required to report these statistics to the FBI. The Washington Post set out to track every fatal shooting by an on-duty officer in 2015. Its database chronicled the shootings in real time, using news reports and other public sources. It compiled a trove of data, from the race of the person killed, whether the person was armed when killed, to whether the person was purported to have threatened the officer prior to being killed. The results found by the Post are shocking and haunting, from the sheer breadth of shootings by police in the U.S. to the stories of those killed. And its call to reform is being heeded. This groundbreaking book will radically alter how you view confrontation and accountability within the ranks, and offer a new perspective going forward.

Tony Long was the best ‘shot’ the Met ever had. Under the codename ‘Echo 7’, he was ‘licenced to kill’ bringing down scores of targets, sometimes with deadly force. In 1985 he opened fire on a suspect to save a four-year-old girl whose mother had been stabbed to death by her assailant. Two years later he was involved in another high profile shooting while confronting three armed criminals. On both occasions Tony was commended by the Metropolitan Police Commissioner. But in the spring of 2005, coming face to face with suspected drug dealer and armed robber Azelle Rodney, a volley of point blank shots would bring his career crashing to an end, tarnish his reputation and leave him fighting a murder charge and possible life sentence. From life or death cases and botched operations to political fallouts, this book charts the controversial career from rookie seventies beat cop to Long's command of SO19 – the Met’s most elite specialist firearms unit. Long’s personal testimony and professional insight raises serious issues about the duties, pressures and responsibilities that fall on the shoulders of those we task to risk their lives, and take the lives of others, in our name.

The effects of a single deadly force incident are far-reaching and can have a long-term effect on police-community relations, the profession, the police officer, and his/her family, friends and co-workers (IACP, 2012). Recent high-profile deaths of unarmed men at the hands of police officers have had a dramatic effect on citizens across the country and from all demographics. Regardless of where it occurs, it has the potential to reverberate throughout the law enforcement community. The purpose of this phenomenological study is to examine the personal experiences of police officers who used lethal or deadly force in order to understand the human factors that lead to these decisions and identify any training implications pre/post-event. The theoretical framework used for this examination was the symbolic interactionist theory, which relies on the meaning and interpretation a police officer gives to the interactions and behaviors of others. The following research question framed this study: What are the lived experiences of police officers who use lethal force? This qualitative study utilized criterion sampling to locate participants who had experienced this phenomenon and snowball sampling to expand the sample size and obtain other similarly situated officers who had used lethal or deadly force. An open-ended interview format was used to understand this phenomenon, gain insight, and provide a deeper understanding into the participants; experiences (Fontan & Frey, 2000; Speziale & Carpenter, 2007). The research results provided conclusions regarding the participants’ training and preparation, the aftermath or effects of their lethal force use, and recommendations or advice for agencies or others in a similar situation. By viewing these incidents through the participant’s lens, it provided insight into areas where their agency performed satisfactorily but also highlighted where improvements can be made, and additional research should be conducted.

In its case law on the use of lethal and potentially lethal force, the European Court of Human Rights declares a fundamental connection between the right to life in Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights and democratic society. This book discusses how that connection can be understood by using narrative theory to explore Article 2 law's specificities and its deeper historical, social and political significance. Focusing on the domestic policing and law enforcement context, the book draws on an extensive analysis of case law from 1995 to 2017. It shows how the connection with democratic society in Article 2's substantive and procedural dimensions underlines the right to life's problematic duality, as an expression of a basic value demanding a high level of protection and a contextually limited provision allowing states leeway in the use of force. Emphasising the need to identify clear standards in the interpretation and application of the right to life, the book argues that Article 2 law's narrative dimensions bring to light its core purposes and values. These are to extract meaning from pain and death, ground democratic society's foundational distinction between acceptable force and unacceptable violence, and indicate democratic society's essential attributes as a restrained, responsible and reflective system.
