Badge of Dishonor is a chilling, first-person account of police brutality, corruption, racism and murder of a young businessman and former newspaper reporter arranged by the Shreveport Commissioner of Public Safety – the city’s top cop. The story begins in the early 1960s in a Deep South town where segregation was ruthlessly enforced by police and the white establishment. During twenty years as patrol officer, detective captain and unofficial pilot for the city, author Jere Joiner witnessed lawlessness at the highest level of the police department. If the commissioner suspected he would testify to what he knew before a grand jury, Joiner would be a marked man. He feared for his life and was fully prepared to shoot his boss during their final confrontation.

UPDATE: Shreveport's KTBS/TV Channel 3 featured Badge of Dishonor in a 6 p.m. and 10 p.m broadcast. Click here to watch the video or read the script.
