Neal Smith was a cop for thirty-eight years, and in Blue Truth/Liberal Lies, he tells the cold, hard truth about life when you wear the badge. He shares the stories of the many calls he went on, from participating in high-speed chases to witnessing horrible violence. He talks about the racism he faced as well as the PTSD that many cops suffer. He also tells stories that are, ultimately, of humor, hope, and friendship, such as when he shot a rock star but the two ended up becoming friends. Perfect for anyone who considers cops a faceless menace, Blue Truth/Liberal Lies puts a human face to the badge.
