NeverGetBusted Tip: How To Spot an Undercover Kop

I worked as an undercover cop in dozens of drug stings. I bought drugs. I sold drugs. I traded guns for drugs. I did all of this under the direction and watchful eye of our American government. I feel bad for using my undercover skills to cage non-violent citizens so now I use my undercover skills to bust krooked kops.

I have been criticized by some police officers for revealing how to spot undercovers in my second film, NeverGetRaided. I dedicated an entire chapter to this subject where I explain undercover police are causing more harm to citizens then the drugs themselves. (Our drug laws are causing the violence, not the drugs.)

Police and the media make it sound as if officers are losing their lives every day in the War On Drugs. According to the FBI’s Uniformed Crime Reports, between the years 1996 and 2006, only 28 officers lost their lives during drug operations. This means that only 2.8 cops died compared to the millions of citizens who lost their lives or their freedom in the same time period. Who ever said the life of a cop was more valuable then the life of a citizen? In fact, it’s suppose to be the other way around. Police are suppose to lay down their lives to protect citizens. I tell any officers who are worried that my information will help citizens reveal their identity, to stop working as an undercover because they are causing more harm than the offender.

Hopefully these few tips will help you avoid being busted by the undercover agents who are still out there trying to score your stash.

Tip #1: Don’t be fooled: when asked, undercover police DO NOT have to tell you they are working undercover. I’m not sure how this rumor started but it is not true and actually helps law enforcement. Many times as an undercover, suspects would ask if I were a cop and explain I must tell if I were. I would respond, “No. I’m not a cop and you are correct. I would have to tell you if I were.” The suspects were always comfortable with this answer and would sometimes comment on how cool the “must tell” law was.

Tip#2: The best way to reveal an undercover cop is to insist they take a large bong hit in your presence. Informants are ordered to never use drugs during operations, but often break the agreement. Police are NEVER allowed to partake in the use of drugs during operations (or anytime for that matter). In fact, I would often be drug-tested immediately after an operation to prove I didn’t partake. The test results would be added to the prosecutors file in case the defendant ever claimed I was a user. But beware: police are taught how to mimic a joint-hit by allowing the smoke to pass from their mouth and through their noses without any smoke entering their lungs. It’s impossible to fake a bong hit, so always insist on that form of ingestion when dealing with any suspicious persons.

Although this method is not 100% fool-proof in identifying a cop, as there are still a few rogue agents who will use drugs regardless, it’s a great filter, and will make you a little suspicious of any persons unwilling to hit a bong.

    hahaha man i cant beleive how rude some people are to barry his doing everything he can and risking his own freedom to help people, even though he was an ex narc he has completely changed his ways and he deserves great respect for that and for the courage he has to stand up to “x police freinds”
    he is very sympethetic and regretful for his actions as a drug cop and he defenetly deserves forgiveness and complete support by everyone to end this war on drugs. + barry cooper should not be critisised so quik as he is prety much one of the best informed individual in this feild. and of course lets not forget who we are realy fighting against.

    peace out barry

    I’ve seen your videos and studied them as best as I could and get this…I don’t even partake in the herb! Why study so intently? Because much like you’ve done, I too want to educate people that weed is victimless. The only “victims” are those with a terrible nutritional value printed on the side of a wrapper!

    Sure I used to smoke back in the day but once hash virtually disappeared I didn’t enjoy not knowing how strong/weak the weed would be until i’d smoke it. Some nights felt like i smoked dryer lint whereas more often than not, some of the weed was just way too strong for my liking!

    Anyhow, my point being, I study your material in order to help the younger generation understand their rights and not become a korrupt departments statistics for the weekly newspapers. The most powerful weapon to any governemnt is an educated population!

    Fight the good fight Barrie and again, thank you!

    I grew up in San Antonio, I still have a lot of family all over TEXAS -so I have an understanding of what you’re up against there as an activist & as a politician.

    I just want to say that, for lack of a better word, that I’m ‘proud’ of you. TEXAS is like no other state; it’s a state that on one hand produces nut jobs like Bush & Perry – then at the same time has thinkers like J. Hightower & the only republican that I ever voted for; Ron Paul ….and hopefully one day I hope to say the greatest attorney general; Barry Cooper.

    If I still lived in Tejas, you’d have my vote hands down. That said, You have my word that I will spread the good word about you with all my friends & relatives to get you elected!

    Thank you Mr. Barry Cooper, thank you again and yes please ignore the fear from the last ditch effort on their losing control of us. They cannot hold us down in fear when people such as Marc or Yourself stand up and show us that THESE people do NOT have the power they show us, we give our rights away which gives them the power. Learn to defend yourself first and then you will learn to defend others. ( Love this saying: Feed a man a fish and he eats for a day, Teach a man to fish and he feeds himself for life.)Thank you for keeping up the fight by helping us protect ourselves and the ones we love. They trivialize but the truth is people are LOSING their life to this harmful ignorant war than CANNOT EVER BE WON. This is so very insane , I don’t know how said this but insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results.

    Re: the parent comment – Yeah whatever. The past is just that. Thanks for your tips, I think they benefit society in general. The world is a far better place with people like yourself working to curb the damage caused by the abuse of power that is the “war on drugs” (aka war on personal freedom). If you can manage to find a way to turn a profit as well, well – that’s what makes this the (once great) country it is.

    err.. sorry Barry..

    Wow, that is very cool Barrie I am starting to understand how law can so easily be misinterpreted. I always thought 1. was true too and it is but you can answer in a way that doesn’t lie.
    and thanks for number 2, I haven’t to worry for me but some places I’m buying at, we all sit around and talk, the many people and you never know..I’d love to test that and add to it a family bong pic becasue nobody gives a shit in Canada that you smoke it and have a pic becasue no cop would waste his time, yet anyway. So have a wall or short video.
    just a thought, many of us don’t care of pics being users just don’t deal in front of your camera.

    Barry, thanks for doing what you do. I have watched your DVDs and some of the lessons learned are priceless. I’d rather support your efforts to keep good people out of prison than pay your salary as a cop to help you put ’em in.
    If you are really serious about running for AG of Texas, I’ll look for your name on the ballot.
