Police officers are entrusted with a monopoly on the legitimate use of force in the United States but are given limited and often poor training in how that force and other immense police powers should be ethically deployed in service to the public. This little book examines a core of ethical principles in the context of the ancient Code of Bushido. This ancient warrior code of Japan is unique in that, unlike most ethical systems, it does contemplate the legitimate use of force in the performance of duty.
