Criminologist and Author David Klinger

Four months after he became a Los Angeles police officer, he shot and killed a suspect. Now he's a professor at the University of Missouri. He's just written a book about police shootings — why they happen, how cops train to avoid them, and what shootings do to officers who pull the trigger. It's called Into the Kill Zone: A Cop's Eye View of Deadly Force.
