    323: Understanding Deadly Force with Stop The Killing Podcast

    323: Understanding Deadly Force with Stop The Killing Podcast

    I teamed up with the Stop The Killing podcast. When the hosts, Katherine Schweit and Sara Ferris, invited me to be a guest on their show, I suggested we review the core principles of America's deadly force policy assumed by everyone who carries a gun, whether they’re a law enforcement officer or private citizen. I hope our conversation provides an understanding of what it’s like to carry a gun. I dedicate this show to those who made the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives in the line of duty.

How amazing is Jerri!

She had done more to cast the FBI in a positive way than any silly hollywood portrayal. What a journalistic, law enforcement asset!
