Corporal Dale W. Rogers
Boise Police Department

On September 20, 1997, Boise Police Officers stopped brothers Craig and Doug Brodrick for a traffic violation. Because the Brodricks were acting suspiciously, the officers decided to conduct a “high risk” stop. Corporal Dale Rogers was one of several officers who heard the call for assistance and arrived at the scene. The driver of the suspect vehicle was directed to exit the vehicle, lift his coat, and turn around. The driver told officers, “I don’t think so” and “No.” Corporal Rogers had his weapon aimed at the driver for cover. The driver was directed two more times to lift his coat and turn around. The driver gave the same response and began stepping backwards. As he stepped back, he brushed his coat aside, revealing a gun holster.  Read more >>>
