"Blue Lives Matter--In the Line of Duty"

Blue Lives Matter is a book that explores the line-of-duty deaths suffered by the law enforcement "blue" family. This book examines the deaths of eight police officers and one police canine in Los Angeles County. The chapters portray the fallen officers and the canine as true heroes who each made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their community.  The cases include the murder of two officers solved over 40 years later; an officer murdered in front of his young son; two officers kidnaped and taken to an onion field where one officer is executed; an undercover officer murdered during a multi-million dollar drug transaction; an off-duty officer murdered by two gang members while riding his bicycle;  and a cop-killer who fled to Mexico to avoid prosecution.
