Summary Excerpt Comments

August, 2014. Oakland, California. A white police officer shoots and kills an unarmed black man. Protesters march and their rallying cries echo through the streets: “Black lives matter! Hands up, don’t shoot! I can’t breathe!” Outside agitators swarm into the city to incite unrest. Police mobilize to prevent mob violence and looting. Rioting erupts. Oakland teeters on the verge of anarchy. 

Buried under an avalanche of scathing criticism is OPD Officer Shane Barrow’s account of that fatal encounter. A routine traffic stop escalates into a fierce life and death struggle between the driver and Shane for control of his holstered pistol, compelling Shane to shoot his attacker in a desperate fight for survival. But the Black Lives Matter movement scorns his version of the controversy and brands him as just another racist, trigger-happy cop guilty of murdering a defenseless black man. 

This unjust persecution and relentless negative media coverage traumatizes Shane, cripples him with self-doubt, and sets the stage for a stunning conclusion with tragic consequences.
