Contents include : Donald Eugene Webb, jewel thief, big spender, and cop killer, who is still at large. The Black Liberation Army, whose members made it their mission to rid the ghettos of police. The killings were, for them, victorious battles in the 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 "neighbour 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.
