Hoped for a higher level of objective truth. Sad that a liberal view on issues was woven into much of the useful insights. Also, seemed like two different people wrote this, depending upon which sentence you read. And it does not help that the narrator embellished and accentuated anything he perceived as negative facts on LE—even when they were not. So, if you do buy it, you might be better off reading it vs. listening to the audio book version.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If this former police officer was able to actually see what was going on in policing and write from a stand point that wasn't so one sided. Also when someone writes about civil litigations and takes information from what was claimed and not what was proved to have happened and writes it as fact that really causes issues with how legitimate the author's ability to bring forward credible information for people to make informed decisions.
What was most disappointing about Norm Stamper’s story?
I wonder what type of police officer he was and if he has ever had to be in a situation where he had deadly force used against him or if he had to use deadly force against someone else. I also wonder how many times he has actually used force to be able to speak about use of force from the perspective as what he claims to be an expert. A person who may be promoted may be an expert in management but does not necessarily mean they have a true understanding of use of force incidents. It is obvious to me that he has a limited understanding on this subject topic but speaks about it as an expert.
