Overview
"On Sacred Ground" offers an unexpectedly spiritual approach to the account of a controversial, officer-involved shooting as told by the retired, well-seasoned officer who pulled the trigger. Scott Haslar's memoir offers a look into race-related issues, the effects of post-traumatic stress, and the gritty realization that history in the United States has only been repeating itself. Get an inside, on-the-ground look from the eye of the hurricane as Haslar takes you through the tragic events that conspired in 1990. Over thirty years later, what Haslar has witnessed is still, if not more, important to the cultural discussion at large. It's a tale of public service as a police officer, trauma, addiction, recovery, and transformation.
