5.0 out of 5 stars Martial Law is not that scary, January 5, 2004
John Lee ( - See all my reviews
I have the 2nd Edition (1992), which probably dated compared to the 4th Ed. Comprehensive introductory comparison between civilian law and UCMJ. It helps to know a little about civilian law and procedure, which, unfortunately, is almost impossible even for licensed trial lawyers to understand (judges and prosecutors are "trial lawyers" too). This book does help break the brainwashing perped by a lying "news" media and Hollywood disinfotainment, and gives useful advice to NEVER trust police, and NEVER speak with police, and to first speak with a lawyer you can trust. Unfortunately, most people never read a law book until it's too late to do much good. This should be required reading for every person before they enlist. Every person should have a law library anyway, for self-defense, since every person must look out for themselves versus criminals and/or government, and EVERY person is robbed by both every year (especially if they don't even know it). There are many areas skipped in the 2nd Ed, like VA benefits being stolen by VA for 100% of disabled retirees (steal either pension or disabilty). Also, vaccine waivers must be signed on first day of enlistment ONLY (US Census reported 320,000 disabled Gulf War Vets as of Census 2000, plus 35,000 dead is reported from There are, of course, massive areas of law ignored/censored by the authors, especially frauds perped by courts, as in most other "mainstream" law texts. This, fortunately, does not detract from the book, since that other information is available to those to work hard to seek it out. 2nd Ed has good explanation of pretrial strategy for choosing which tunnel in the infinite maze. Since General Tommy Franks was quoted in December 2003 that he wants martial law in USA today, perhaps all US citizens will need this book soon, after all US courts are shut down and replaced by military Civil Affairs courts-martial.
