On December 22, 1984, Bernhard Goetz shot four unarmed young men on a subway train in Manhattan, New York. The story exploded with debate about self-defense, gun rights, and the racial implications involved in the shooting. Why did Goetz open fire on the subway that day? Were his actions justified?
