    1. 1 Ruby Ridge exhausive account of the appalling murders of Randy Weaver s young son, Sammy, and his dog and his wife, Vicki, and the baby in her arms by the FBI and USMS stemming from a fake sting by the ATF Weaver was an end time religious nutter and white supremacist However, in the free world no one has the right to police another s thoughts, only their actions He was defended by Spence and a team of lawyers all of whom worked pro bono Although they won, no action was ever taken against the m [...]

    2. It s not what it appears to be at first glance This book is not so much a compendium of patrolman misconduct, but rather a collection of narrated real life courtroom dramas won by the author, Gerry Spence, who literally has always won his criminal trials both as prosecutor and defense attorney because he s a bu hadaaaaasss Seriously, he s like a movie lawyer He successfully defended Randy Weaver Ruby Ridge by pointing the finger at the FBI, Imelda Marcos by pointing the finger at the Reagan Admi [...]

    3. Review originally posted at Book of Bogan.Police State is a slightly terrifying trip down memory lane through the eyes of one defence lawyer who represented a wide range of clients in their battles against a government, or authority which sought to use its power to overreach and crush the oppressed.Gerry Spence uses a number of examples from his own case history to examine the different ways that people, and governments in positions of power are able to wield that power in an unequal battle for [...]

    4. Gerry Spence is a great trial lawyer but he makes contradictory statements and conclusions throughout the book while he is trying to argue for reforms to the criminal justice system The book is hardly about the police but about the different aspects of the criminal justice system including police All of the cases he highlights are extreme examples He wrongly concludes in one chapter that because the judge previously belonged to the same church as the defendant and the plaintiffs that he somehow [...]

    5. Not really at all what I was expecting from the title I was hoping for a broader overview of the corruption in law enforcement and the legal system Instead the book was a collection of cases the author was involved in as a defense attorney, many of which were several decades old and some of which are well known ie Ruby Ridge and Imelda Marcos Often they contained the transcripts of entire opening and closing statements and sometimes much of the witness testimony and cross examination dialogue Ap [...]

    6. A serious indictment, not just of the police, but the Justice system in general It is a serious issue, and easy to convict an innocent person, as this compendium of Spence s cases illustrates Read in conjunction with Sidney Powell s Licensed to Lie, one can easily see how the system is broken and bent in favor of the prosecution.

    7. An interesting collection of the author s cases, all of which have some element of police corruption While I very much enjoyed Spence s writing and his court antics on behalf of his clients, I don t think he was particularly successful at proving his hyperbolical subtitle which states that America s cops get away with murder.

    8. I find the book s title and cover misleading One is given the impression that this book will be about police misconduct, but it is mostly about the courtroom The police play a part in the process and there are some major flubs, but this is really about trials The author states that he uses literary license to breathe life into these accounts, to re create the experiences as he has felt them to the bone I don t know of the cases he speaks of and I am wary of his unobjective slant did things reall [...]
