Barry Cooper hits NPR

This week on NPR’s This American Life:

Act Two. Taking a Big Pink Eraser to the Thin Blue Line

Michael May tells the story of Barry Cooper, a former crooked narcotics cop who has turned his interest elsewhere… to busting crooked narcotics cops. But after Cooper and a rich benefactor team up to set a trap for the police, Barry’s plans are put in jeopardy- including his dream of creating a reality show called “Kop Busters.” Michael May is the Culture editor at the Texas Observer. You can watch videos of Barry’s police raids at their website. (15 minutes)

The ending seems a little flat as in ‘you can’t fight city hall’ (propaganda phrase). Free Talk Live listeners have more of the background (March 26, March 13) but it does expose the drug war criminals.
