Expert Pitch

Newswise — The shooting of police officers in Dallas has raised many questions among the police and public, says Texas A&M University Professor of Homeland Security Dr. Danny Davis. How do we deal with U.S. citizens who engage in terror tactics? Have they crossed the line and become combatants and no longer have Constitutional rights? Does using an explosive device to kill a shooter set a dangerous precedent?

Davis, an expert in terrorism, counterterrorism and security policy, can discuss the difficult questions police departments across the country need to ask when dealing with these situations and provides insight into the national security and policy implications their decisions will have.

During a 20-year Army career, Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) Davis served in a variety of command and staff positions in airborne, ranger, and special forces units.
