It's no worse than alcohol, which kills millions ..
Nicholas Clifford
It's a sad day for America when someone like this guy can profit off the taxpayers for fleecing them, and then write a book bragging about how he has fleeced them.
Shabaz K. Morton
I'm going to give a couple of links, but if you google - Texas town steals money from motorists - you'll get plenty of information.

Since this a how-to manual and a public policy prescription, I think that it should be made clear what is going on in policing on our nations highways, which this author does very well. Where he is lacking is in the moral understanding of the evil he advocates and the "unintended" consequences that will follow on from his prescription. "Banana Republic" without the bananas is the most apt description of the outcome of these policies.

The facility with which the author writes makes his immorality even more egregious and, to a self-characterization and hopeful transformation of police in the United States as noted in the Washington Post article mentioned above, where he likens such criminal behavior to being "Robin Hood" I can only reply that he apparently is untutored in the legend he attempts to invoke.

Robin Hood was a champion of the oppressed, NOT a self-aggrandizing oppressor himself. The Rich that he stole from were the bad gov't actors and aristocracy that took money from the peasants for their own use; Robin Hood recovered that money and returned it to the rightful owners.

The author is apparently hopeful that his readers will be ignorant of the image he invokes and not understand that he is in fact subverting that image; the policing-for-profit thugs operating under color of law ARE the oppressive bad gov't actors just like the Sheriff of Nottingham that Robin Hood opposed. In any just society, such individuals would be facing long prison sentences properly segregated from society, NOT operating from the politically privileged position they presently are in.

The more I read of such "Law Enforcement Officers" and their apologists, the more it becomes apparent that that entire subculture suffers from the Dunning-Kruger effect in its ethical variant.

“All of our home towns are sitting on a tax-liberating gold mine,” Deputy Ron Hain of Kane County, Ill., wrote in a self-published book under a pseudonym. Hain is a marketing specialist for Desert Snow, a leading interdiction training firm based in Guthrie, Okla., whose founders also created Black Asphalt."

This is from the Washington Post on September 7, 2014 in an article about police abuse of search and seizure. Mr. Hain is the author of this book, which is a promotion of unjust police seizure of innocent people's money. You'll note the people praising the book here are also police.
Every year many thousands of innocent people in the U.S. have money and property seized after routine traffic stops. It's a disgrace but this is what this book promotes.

Clearly written by a brownshirt. This man took an oath to defend the constitution, and he is either too stupid to understand the oath that he took or he is content to violate that oath. It's a sad day for America when someone like this guy can profit off the taxpayers for fleecing them, and then write a book bragging about how he has fleeced them. Truly saddening and maddening.

This is a book telling your police departments how to rob innocent citizens and force them to spend $1000's on trying to recover their own money. The Author should not be rewarded for helping to implement this travesty.

To serve & protect ? who exactly do they serve and protect these days? maybe American cops always were thugs in uniforms? thousands of videos now on Youtube have shown us how these psychopathic maniacs think and work.CHP here in CA must spend 90% of their time waiting to write trivial tickets, we have thousands of small town cops, you know, the Boss Hogg types... petty minded to the core, writing his quota of tickets everyday. Billions of dollars fleeced from motorists every year in the US, outrageous fines can run in the hundreds of dollars in CA, court fees and added insurance premiums are scandalous. Shame on the author, but thank you for publicly exposing your crimes.. the "War on Drugs" is an abject failure, we have the highest incarceration rates in the entire world, smoking pot should not be a crime, having pot on you should not be crime, selling pot should not be a crime. It's no worse than alcohol, which kills millions .. legalize and control with taxes is the American way ... crime would disappear overnight.

Mr. Haines is actually Ron Hain, a police officer in Kane County, Illinois. What he fails to reveal is the nationwide game he and other cops play by seizing money and assets from drivers who have not committed a crime and are not charged with any. This criminally confiscated wealth helps to pay Officer Hain's salary, along with the countless other expenses of the county in which he works. The Washington Post describes it as "the spread of an aggressive brand of policing that has spurred the seizure of hundreds of millions of dollars in cash from motorists and others not charged with crimes." "Thousands of people have been forced to fight legal battles that can last more than a year to get their money back."
Does this actually remind anyone of the purported task of police, that being to "protect and to serve?" Police across the nation are playing a multi-million dollar game of legalized theft WITH OUR MONEY. This is a disgrace.
Just exactly how does confiscation of the legally earned money and assets of Americans translate into "a working solution to America's War on Drugs???" The book itself is misleading as Officer Hain refuses to reveal the official corruption rampant in any number of police departments across the nation.
"A Working Solution to America's War on Drugs" is nothing more than an attempt to collect money from unsuspecting Americans on the front end as well as the back. For who knows, you might be Officer Hains next "mark" as you drive through Kane County, Illinois.
