5.0 out of 5 stars POLICE STATE
Reviewed in the United States on May 1, 2022
You figure it out. The Gerry Spence book in the post below, Win Your Case, was rejected by the Amazon secret police. But this book was not only approved it was placed at the top of the review discussion. What was the difference? I suppose it depended upon who the one behind that great wall of invisible and anonymous big tech companies is. This review is my posted review on Amazon, word for word, and Freedom’s picture, too. I disabled the Amazon links, but you can go to Amazon and in their search bar type Gerry Spence Police State and you can read all the reviews on this excellent book with 5-Star reviews, or a 4.5 actually. By the way, these reviews laid days in wait for the decision of the secret ones behind the invisible wall of fate to make their decision.

“I’m a trial lawyer. I make arguments. And I ask questions. I’ve defended the poor, the forgotten, the lost, and the damned for over sixty years in the courtrooms of America. Over my career I’ve shut out a haunting question I wasn’t prepared to face: Are we safe from our own police? Have our police become killers on the loose who cover up their crimes— and too often there’s no one to stop them?” –Gerry Spence, Police State
It reminds me of the inscription on the Statue of Liberty in part…
“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” – Emma Lazarus, 1883
They are both icons symbolic with Law & Justice.
Put on your seat belt, and strap down that shoulder harness, too. You’ll need it. We’re going for a ride with a driver who dares to go where few are willing to go. This trial lawyer who knows his stuff is going to teach you a little bit of it—at Ground Zero!
Gerry Spence covers the POLICE STATE with the stories of his own cases, and those of his client’s, and of others. Ruby Ridge is one case for starters. As Spence paints his stories you feel that you are almost there, like on that bloody mountain top in Idaho where federal law enforcement agents, U.S. Marshals and FBI snipers shot and killed the unarmed wife while she held their breast-feeding baby. The 14-year-old son was shot in the back as he ran for home and the boy’s dog, that was just being a dog and doing what dogs do, was shot first and started the firefight that rained blood. “Murdered,” Spence charges. This was the young family of Randy Weaver, a former U.S. Special Forces, the FBI and federal LEOs entrapped from the beginning in a weapons charge and other botched federal activities of erroneous nature.
Some of the same federal players would soon be engaged in Waco where Americans would soon see the POLICE STATE in living color.
Vigilantes Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols are said to have carried out their vengeance in the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing in retaliation to the 1992 Ruby Ridge standoff and 1993 Waco siege. Evil begets evil.
The rise in the American Militia Movement can also be attributed to the sieges at Ruby Ridge and Waco.
George H. W. Bush was president when the Ruby Ridge incident unfolded, but Bill Clinton was in office by the time the trial started in April of 1993. His attorney general was Janet Reno. They served through times of American turmoil, both the Ruby Ridge trials and Waco Siege, as well as the Oklahoma City bombing.
Police State is yet another compelling book for any library with a serious Gerry Spence collection.
He covers a lot of cases and a lot of examples of injustice. The scariest part about this book is, it is all true. Spence is the man who delivers it. As he opens the book, he admits that throughout his career he shut out the haunting question, are we safe from out own police? Have our police become killers on the loose? He answers these questions and more in vivid detail. Spence takes you to the crime scene and you can feel the emotions of the victims and hear the thunder of the injustice.
For one who has always been supportive of the police, and justice, I find this is a heart-wrenching story that needed to be told. There was no one more qualified than trial lawyer Gerry Spence to tell this story.
Police State is the epitome of an extended exposition into the full study of American law and justice, police corruption and crime and the injustice that is sowed into the hearts, minds and souls of the victims and witnesses that experience them. Begin here, with the brilliant and extraordinary experience of Gerry Spence at the epicenter of the study of law and lawlessness, justice and injustice, and expand your study outward.
There is a large collection of Gerry Spence books right here at Amazon. I have rated every one of them a 5 star.
Gerry Spence, America’s foremost trial lawyer and teacher of law and justice. Fighting for the common people. ~Cliff Harrison
Some of the best education in the discussion and philosophy on law and justice can be gathered by studying the most powerful and victorious trial lawyer in American history, Gerry Spence, my mentor.
Gerry Spence has released multiple books, websites and blogs and videos, or have been the subject of interviews thereof that tells compelling stories of injustice and of justice.
Insider Exclusive is just one such public showcase that has repeatedly featured Gerry Spence and his stories of law and justice.
I have spent more than four decades listening to or reading and studying and sometimes communicating with Gerry Spence. It has always been a rewarding experience and an educational one, too.
I do not have a very good opinion of most lawyers. As a group I think that most of them are the epitome of the abyss and of immoral misconduct, the parasites of life. They are demonic and evil.
Jesus Christ didn’t think too much of lawyers either, so my thoughts cannot be too distance from the thoughts of the most powerful force in the universe.
Gerry Spence is clearly a different species. He is a rare genius in a crowded profession of losers and imbeciles.
He is a fierce warrior and a freedom fighter, yet such a gentle poet and a painter and photographer. These talents symbolize his heart and soul. Who could compare with such a man of remarkable valor and talent, yet so uncomplicated that he can communicate so the common people fully understand him—and his convictions?
He is a teacher, a philosopher, rancher, and a storyteller. And he is a man of many more things, all wholesome and good, all moral and upstanding. I believe more than anything else, he is a leader for freedom, law, justice and leadership. He wants you to be you, not a carbon copy or a clone of him, Gerry Spence.
He is an inspiration to any who has lost hope. In one of his books about slavery and freedom, and being in prison he explains you are free if you allow your mind to think you are free.
In another, in an example about the horrors of medical malpractice and the predator examples of negligence doctors and those in the medical fields he talks about the number of daily medical deaths due to negligent doctors amounts to the equivalence of several fully loaded passenger jets crashing and the passengers perishing. He says if We the People had that many planes crashing and the passengers perishing, we’d rise up and demand change. Yet, he testifies, that many people die each and every day due to careless, doctors and medical professionals who are negligent and wrongful in the deaths or serious injuries of their patients. Vulnerable patients.
Gerry Spence is the diamond that comes from the harvest of coal.
For many years when he was more active in one of his blogs I communicated regularly with him, as did many people, including several lawyers, students, and nonstudents of his. The discussions of law and justice were always interesting and compelling.
Gerry Spence is the Grand Master of Law and Justice, second to none.
He is a master at explaining law, debating, and arguing it in simple terms most people can grasps.
Gerry Spence is 93 years old. He has practiced law for some 70 years, longer than before most people reading this material were ever born.
In my opinion he is the greatest trial lawyer in history. He went decades undefeated in criminal and civil cases of every magnitude. He defeated many governments, including the United States Federal Government and the FBI.
The Randy Weaver’s, Ruby Ridge case, was just one such case that elevated Gerry Spence into the national limelight as a super lawyer.
The Karen Silkwood case was the premier case that demonstrated Gerry Spence’s profound mastery of law.
The man named Spence could walk into a courtroom, the coldest of the coldest, in his heart-warming western attire, fringed buckskin jacket and all, and tame the wild minds of the most hostile adversary and melt the hearts of the jury like an inferno on top of an iceberg.
He could look the jurors in the eyes and plead with them during the closing arguments, ask them to help him, help him understand his case. He would tell a story almost every time in those closing arguments. He made friends of strangers and adversaries. Who could dislike Gerry Spence, the grand storyteller and Master of Law and Justice?
Perhaps Gerry Spence’s most admirable characteristic is that he is trusting. We the People look at him and find him trusting. Something we seldom do with those other ones who tell us they are lawyers or attorneys.
Snakes crawl from the grass many if not most lawyers walk upon, but not from the footsteps of Gerry Spence. White doves fly from his shoulders and the American bald eagle flies high and soars in the skies above him.
I have read nearly every book Gerry Spence has ever written and they remain in my library among the most prized and admired authors in my collection. Authors of liberty and independence. Law and justice. War and peace. The minds, heart, and souls of life. The mentors of justice. The freedom fighters and the liberators of the oppressed. The educators of self-education and inspirations.
I have viewed every video he was every interviewed in or was a principle in its production.
Spence is a multitalented professional. Not only has he practiced law for well over a half-century, nearly three-quarters of a century, in fact, and with astonishing success, he is a freedom fighter for the rights of the common people. He is the founder of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College, to train trial lawyers for the fight of the people. The college is held on the 35,000 acre Thunderhead Ranch in the Dubois, Wyoming area.
Local Las Vegas lawyers who have attended and graduated from the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College have secured record jury trial awards here locally. One such multimillion dollar verdict against a negligent Las Vegas landlord to provide adequate security sets a precedence that law and justice shall be served to the victims of the wrongdoers.
Three words and phrases in the language of law that are powerful inflictions upon the defendant(s) to assure their defeat when the victorious legal maneuvers are engaged with their empowerment by the plaintiff are negligence, gross negligence and willful and malicious misconduct. They are not the only legal terms that can bring a malicious defendant to their knees and punish them with no mercy, but they are perhaps the most effective, most enduring and the costliest to the defendant’s legal war chest.
The Litigator who holds these trump cards in his war strategies and can prove the existence of negligence, gross negligence and willful and malicious misconduct by the defendant(s) should victor over his wrongdoers in the eyes of the trial jury that should escalate the size of awards for the damages caused to the plaintiff. The liability against the defendant is magnificent. That is where justice meets law and law guarantees justice. It is at the very foundation and framework of a free nation called the United States of America.
