Ferghanistan: The War On Police gives us a cops-eye view of perhaps the most tumultuous year in the history of law enforcement
told from the unique perspective of the most visible police spokesman to emerge from the smoldering ashes of Ferguson. The author, Jeff Roorda, stood-out through the grueling ordeal as law enforcement’s most outspoken champion... an advocate for the truth who challenged the false narrative perpetuated by media hype, political spin and the deceitful chants of an angry mob.
In his role as spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police in St. Louis, Roorda, a retired police officer and Missouri State Legislator, set the record straight about the realities on the ground in his full-throated defense of law enforcement and his unabashed devotion to exposing the truth about what really happened on Canfield Drive and its aftermath.
Roorda was relentless in debunking the "hands-up, don't shoot" myth and the widely criticized police response to the social upheaval that followed the Brown shooting as he took on those who would re-write history through over 75 nationally broadcast interviews on ABC, CNN, FOX and other news networks.
Ferghanistan: The War On Police provides us with a refreshingly candid look at what really happened in Ferguson and how it affected those on the thin blue line that stood between law abiding citizens and the violent protestors that rained chaos on the St. Louis area and across the country.
Roorda’s exclusive interviews with Darren Wilson and three of the St. Louis area police officers who were shot in the line of duty as the violence boiled over, gives depth and humanity to the men and women of law enforcement who were so relentlessly dehumanized throughout the carnage that followed the August 9th shooting of Brown.
