This unflinching look at death in the line of duty includes graphic footage of the murder of a Texas constable-captured on the dashboard video camera of his cruiser.
It is a crime of desperation one that is certain to be pursued to the utmost by the police, yet the horrifying cases where lawmen are killed in the line of duty continue to mount.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® examines five notorious incidents where events led to the death of a policeman and the conviction of the killers. Ronald Ray Howard claimed that he was spurred to shoot an officer in the neck by the lyrics of rap music. Leroy Strachan was caught and convicted 40 years later for the 1946 murder of Miami Officer John Milledge. The astonishing details of these and other cases are revealed in COP KILLERS. Hear from fellow officers who make it their mission to seek out the cop killers, and the prosecutors who put them away. And see horrifying video footage of the murder of Texas Constable Darrell Lunsford, captured by the camera mounted on his cruiser's dashboard.
This is the ultimate look at the most heinous crime of all.
