Show Notes

From Jason Schechterle's Book, Burning Shield, " When a taxi smashed into police officer Jason Schechterle's patrol car, the fireball that consumed the vehicle should have killed him. But by a series of small miracles, Schechterle survived: Dying would have been easier. As he would learn only after his own horrific ordeal, law enforcement officers across the country were perishing in similar fires, trapped inside burning Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptors. 

Schechterle, who began a long, gruesome, and gut-wrenching battle back to health, would also take on Ford Motor Company to stop the heinous and ultimately preventable deaths. Interweaving narratives of human triumph and high-stakes legal showdown, this "inspiring true story" (Kirkus Reviews) reveals a rare human being with an undeniable will to live. This gripping real-life biography exemplifies the mystery and beauty of the human spirit, and the healing power of love".
