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.
Cliff Harrison, Author
“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

Nobody seems to know what the word orthonym means. It means; when a writer uses a pen name or pseudonym and then he writes under his real name, he is writing under his orthonym. The real name of a person who uses a pseudonym is an orthonym. J.K. Rowling is the orthonym of Robert Galbraith. Washington Irving is the orthonym of Jonathan Oldstyle; Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, (even though the author is past tense, his work is still in the present tense), Stephen King is the orthonym of Richard Bachman. It’s great to learn something new, isn’t it? Books and reading teach you that!

“…The media back in the States made a big thing of the Iraqi government elections, but it was a nonevent for me. I wasn’t even out that day; I caught it on TV.
I never really believed the Iraqis would turn the country into a truly functioning democracy, but I thought at one point that there was a chance. I don’t know that I believe that now. It’s a pretty corrupt place.
But I didn’t risk my life to bring democracy to Iraq. I risked my life for my buddies, to protect my friends and fellow countrymen. I went to war for MY country, not Iraq. My country sent me out there so that bullshit wouldn’t make its way back to our shores.
I never once fought for the Iraqis. I could give a flying fuck about them.” –Chris Kyle, American Sniper
