Description

Hollywood movies often depict gun battles between police officers and suspects that last for minutes at a time and involve weapons that can never run out of ammunition; but on April 7, 2014, two officers were confronted by all of the ways Hollywood gets it wrong.  In a firefight that lasted less than 20 seconds, the officers faced the reality that they could run out of bullets and came to understand that the battle wasn’t just between them and the suspect...it also involved their own fears and the conflict between wanting to act out of vengeance and their duty to listen to their better angels.
