  • Rating: NR
The New Year started tragically in 1932 when, on January 2, a shootout west of Springfield, Missouri, horribly resulted in the single largest loss of life of law enforcement officers until 9/11. What seemed to be a routine arrest soon turned into an unimaginable bloodbath. Author and historian Bruce Davis researched and documented the historical incident and provides an insightful account.
