He very much walked the walk, some of the things he experienced most people couldnt even imagine in theyre worst nightmares and he lived to tell the tale. And yet when he took that critical look at his life’s work he could only conclude one thing: that it was a complete waste of time. To be clear, Neil doesn’t argue for simple legalisation, he doesn’t want to see crack and heroin sold in Tesco’s. During his career he witnessed increased brutality, violence meted out to addicts who spoke out, or even who introduced a stranger to their dealer. So were there lots of policemen like him in other areas of Britain and if there were surely some of them would have been killed?

Violence in our inner cities is as bad as ever - while crime rates as a whole are falling, knife crime and gun crime is hardly a thing of the past on the sink estates that dot British cities. This book is a very interesting read if you are interested in the casualties of 'The War On Drugs' or how drug dealers and criminals operate in general. The powers that be saw little difference between an addict dealing to fund their habit and the gun-toting thugs a rung above and would charge them both just as happily. Distribuimos y producimos contenido digital de información y entretenimiento y tenemos una gran selección de audiolibros, podcasts y series originales.It's a superb book, which has given me more insight into the UK's 'War on Drugs' than anything else I've seen or read. Then after some time, they ask the small street addicts to introduce them to their dealers - the people with the real power, who are making money from drugs.

It kept me enthralled all the way to the anti-prohibition message at the end, which I thought was well delivered.In Switzerland they created a series of official injection centres in major cities, supplying clean equipment, medical advice and a space where addicts could inject safely. We would scratch the surface of a murder and almost invariably find a turf war between dealers, or a gang protecting their supply network. Starting out in the early 90s and making the rules up as he went, Neil was at the forefront of police surveillance. Insofar as we make drugs illegal, we give big time criminals the opportunity for an excellent livelihood. Very gripping account, and very persuasive on its central argument, although I have to admit that he was preaching to the converted with me.

An important part of the book is about how the police catch big drug dealers - inevitably members of powerful gangs - by getting undercover agents to start getting drugs from these dealers. Even though I hear horror stories from my patients who struggle with addiction, I was unaware of the gruesome criminality that accompanied these mental health issues.

Overall an outstanding book for me and I'd like to thank him for his honesty and strength in writing this. He’s a regular pundit on the subject of drugs and drug policy in the media, and starred in Channel 4 Drugs Live. But it’s equally evident that drugs are the most profitable aspect of criminal behaviour, that without prohibition the money gangsters could make would be much reduced. Si tu cuenta está en pausa dejarás de tener acceso a los títulos del catálogo ilimitado que estuvieses escuchando hasta que reanudes tu suscripción, pero podrás seguir escuchando los audiolibros que hayas comprado individualmente. Good Cop, Bad War' is a unique story about a man with a striking ability to infiltrate and extinguish drug gangs, but who, as the success of his operations grows, becomes disillusioned with the 'War on Drugs', as he sees how it demonises those who need help while empowering 'the very worst elements in society'.
