Item description for Shots Fired Shots Forgiven, The Steve Watt Story by Jim Geeting...
As a young boy, Steve Watt knew he wanted to be a Wyoming State Trooper. At the age of twenty-three, he was sworn in. A few years later, Trooper Watt stopped a car whose driver he hoped had information on the whereabouts of a bank robber fleeing from Colorado to Wyoming.
But the driver of the car he pulled over was not a witness to the crime...he was the actual bank robber! In an instant, the criminal was out of his car and shooting at Trooper Watt. The first bullet went through the trooper's windshield and into Steve Watt's left eye. Before the gunfight was over, Watt was shot four more times and left for dead. But Steve Watt did not die...he fought back!
And that is where the story of Steve Watt's life begins. After years of bitterness and hatred for the man who tried to kill him, Steve Watt found a life with Christ that brought forgiveness and friendship toward Mark Farnham, the man who shot him five times. A friendship so powerful that former trooper, former member of the Wyoming House of Representatives, and now D.A.R.E. instructor and ordained minister Steve Watt has lobbied to obtain Mark Farnham's freedom from prison in an act of Christian forgiveness.
