Unconventional delivery of deadly force
Tracy E. Barnhart and Gary T. Klugiewicz
Here’s a sentence you probably never thought you’d see in print:
This article will address the unconventional delivery of deadly force in a correctional facility and how to defend your actions when you do.
This is not about giving officers a green light to use force indiscriminately. This is not about feeling good about killing someone using unconventional means — indeed, the taking of a life should not be entered into lightly but with great understanding and a sense of duty. Officers who have committed this ultimate seizure and were not properly prepared and debriefed afterwards have resigned due to the stress and turmoil it can cause.
