1559501804 Cops. Some people love them.Some people hate them.Some people kill them.Michael Newton, master of the crime encyclopedia, has compiled more than 100 cases in which legendary gangs, religious mercenaries, and reckless outlaws have taken out law enforcers. The author of Bad Girls Do It!; Hunting Humans; Killer Cops; Black Collar Crime, and Raising Hell gives the goods on the likes of: *The Black Liberation Army, whose members made it their mission to rid the ghettos of police. The killings were, for them, victorious battles in a revolution for black freedom. *The teenager driving a stolen car who claimed that rap music persuaded him to kill the officer who pulled him over. *Con man Gerald Chapman, who developed fan clubs across the country after a string of robberies, jail breaks and murders. *The "neighbor from hell" Carl Drega, whose chronic complaints and simmering rage finally exploded, resulting in bloodshed and death. In this book, you'll get the complete truth behind the tales, and a closer look at the tragic way some cops ended their careers. This tribute seeks to preserve the memory and honor of those killed in the line of duty.
