From the New York Times bestselling author and Fox News contributor comes a fascinating and timely book on the everyday heroism of America’s police and a powerful and insightful analysis of the criticism against them.

Amidst the hysteria from anti-cop groups, the media, celebrities, and President Obama’s White House, many seem to have forgotten a crucial fact: police officers are human beings, and they put their lives on the line daily in the name of duty to protect us all.

In Blue Lives Matter, Katie Pavlich dismantles the myths behind several high profile, controversial cases like Michael Brown’s in Ferguson, Missouri, and provides the hard facts that exonerate the officers in example after example. Far from the predators they’re portrayed to be, they’re often justified in their decisions. Pavlich also examines the ways in which the police force can be improved and bad cops held accountable.

Using original reporting and in-depth interviews, Blue Lives Matter takes us behind the thin blue line and explores the current state of declining morale in cops, the challenges of policing dangerous neighborhoods, the realities of making split-second decisions on duty, and the tragedies of those who gave their lives and the loved ones they left behind.

For anyone who’s tired of the media spin, Blue Lives Matter seeks to reinforce the importance of and rehumanize our police force.
