                         Self Defense and the LAW

Warning!  Many self-defense books and videos contain detailed instructions
on how to maim or kill "the enemy". If you're a soldier, that's your duty.
But if you're not a soldier fighting the enemy, you should know there are
common-sense rules and legal restrictions on non-military self-defense.

You can use only the same level of force against an opponent that it
appears to be, or is actually used against you. Lethal force is not always
necessary. (Most barroom brawls are not life-threatening.) Deliberately
killing an unarmed opponent with your hands or other weapons when he tries
to use non-lethal force against you might be considered as second-degree
murder! Everyone has the right, duty and obligation to defend his life or
the lives of innocent parties, but no one has the right to kill when
killing isn't absolutely necessary.

CRIMEFIGHTERS - The New Breed of Bounty Hunters, by William B. McGhee.
The guts of this unusual book is based on federal rewards currently
available. One such law (Title 18, 3059) pays up to $25,000 for information
leading to the ARREST of "any felon in any state". Another DEA reward law
(Title 18, 886) pays up to $25,000 as a bonus reward if it's drug-related!
These two alone can make you rich when you join in the fight on the war
against drugs. (Do you know any drug dealers in your area?)

applied if the felony was committed for profit, which the majority are.
RICO is a very important CrimeFighter law because it provides for up to 50%
of any fines and forfeitures collected to be paid to CrimeFighters. The 50%
s in addition to specific rewards based on 3059, 886 or based on many
other laws. As you know, there's a federal law for each felony violation -
and a reward to match. This book covers them all!  Choose your field of law
enforcement, go after the perp's, and get paid huge rewards!

RICO law also provides for both civil and criminal suits - either one or
both can be used to lay charges and prosecute. Civil suits are "remedial"
the other - or both!

RICO has provisions to levy appropriate fines and forfeitures on everything
a lawbreaker owns - if they are suspected of being the "fruits of criminal
activity" - and the burden of proof is on the defendant!  Any business that
launders dirty money may also be forfeited! If there's big money involved,
that's almost a certainty. Laundering dirty money via a legitimate business
s the only practical way to legally receive a reportable income.

The crook's valuable possessions may have been purchased from a lifetime of
criminal activity, but if you nail him on a felony charge, you can go after
everything he owns that he can't prove to the court's satisfaction was

Civil vs criminal suits: In civil suits, the evidence need only be a
need to vote "guilty", as opposed to a unanimous verdict from all jurors in
a criminal suit. In criminal suits, maximum fines are set by law according
to the violation. In civil suits, there is no limit: it can be whatever

Civil suits are the easiest to win and should be tried first - when the
lawbreaker is a corporation or has considerable assets to pay large fines,
or has assets used in the violation which can be forfeited (airplane,
boats, vehicles, cash and jewelry, bank accounts, businesses, etc.).

To avoid a state prosecutor's plea bargaining doing you out of a suitable
law to assume the role of state or federal prosecutor -- to protect their
financial interests. Thus, you can become the D.A. for your own cases!

You don't have to be a lawyer. Plea bargaining is simply haggling between
the prosecutor and the lawbreaker's lawyer to reach a compromise, usually
over a cup of coffee. Ninety percent of cases are settled by plea bargain-
ng and won't go to trial. For the first one or two, you can hire a lawyer
to teach you plea bargaining and court sentencing procedure. When you know
use plea bargaining to your advantage - to maximize fines and forfeitures!

Lawbreakers will, if they can, "buy" their way out of jail to avoid a
criminal record if they don't already have one. If the lawbreaker is a
corporation or someone with lots of money, the CrimeFighter (as the D.A.)
can (when legally possible) downgrade the charge to a misdemeanor and
minimize criminal charges if the lawbreaker agrees to pay large fines
and/or forfeitures in a related civil suit. If lawbreakers have few assets
or there is no agreement, a criminal suit can be used as the alternative to

DON'T BUG ME - The Latest High-Tech Spy Methods, by M.L. Shannon.
The author of this book believes that everyone in America has the right to
be left alone by government, business and others who can - and sometimes do
- listen or observe everything you and your family say or do in your home,
office or car. But there are some who don't respect your right to privacy,
and they DON'T want you to have the information in this book!

Law enforcement agents are required to obtain wiretap warrants but in
actual practice some frustrated cops are tempted to "bend" the rules to
nail slippery lawbreakers. While that's understandable, it's still illegal.
But what's more important to INNOCENT parties is, there are others who
aren't law enforcement agents who have a insidious criminal intent in
eavesdropping on private and business conversations - for blackmail,

THE POLICE IN AMERICA, an Introduction, by Samuel Walker, Copyright 1992
This 411-page book is a detailed look at all aspects of police work, what
cops do: the good, the bad, and the ugly (police corruption). The book is
not about how to be a cop, or how to make arrests or be a detective. It's
mainly about what police work is all about. It starts with the history of
various police organizations and their role in maintaining law and order in
America. It analyzes the wide scope of responsibility, authority and
and women in the "new" police force, and discusses their performance and
acceptance on the force as well as in the streets.

The book analyzes the image and reality of police work. "The crime-fighter
mage is not an accurate description of what the police do. Only about one-
third of a patrol officer's activities are devoted to criminal law enforce-
ment. The typical officer rarely makes a felony arrest. Rather, most police

your mind, the information in this book will be helpful. If you think a
cop's life is full of action and glory, think again. The book gives you an
overview of police work in general, promotion criteria, office politics,
and what to expect from police organizations as an officer and citizen.
When you finish the book you'll have a better idea of a cop's job, and the

THE LITIGATION EXPLOSION, What Happened When America Unleashed the Lawsuit,
by Walter K. Olson (1991) (An 8.5 X 5.5  softcover book, not a pocketbook)

The author of this book makes a good case to restrict lawsuits and to rein
n the legal fraternity. But he also provides the information and incentive
for citizens to personally sue lawbreakers. Crimefighters can go a step
further and make them pay for the Crimefighters' time and costs of the
nvestigation leading to their arrest!

Example: You must be the person suffering a loss to sue for "damages". When
you read this book you'll realize anyone can sue lawbreaker for the adverse
effect the crime rate has on our basic freedoms - like freedom from fear
to be.

These and other "injuries" are inflicted on us by lawbreakers. The problem
s, most lawbreakers don't have enough assets to make a lawsuit practical.
But, some do!  The solution is to use a do-it-yourself litigation Kit that
cuts your costs to about $125 to initiate a lawsuit -- which is later paid
back to you by the defendant as part of your legal "costs".

CrimeFighters can sue those they catch for appropriate amounts -- from
$1,000 to $10,000 -- as a substitute for or in addition to federal rewards.
an hour for your time and effort, plus all related investigative expenses.

Each lawbreaker is only a small part of the problem, but each is a part of
the problem. A guilty plea (or jury verdict) provides conclusive evidence
of their liability. The civil suit will hardly ever go to trial. In most
cases, it will be settled out of court when plea bargaining the criminal
charges, or by asking the court for summary judgment based on a conviction.

When a lawbreaker has any assets, you can sue them for a small part of your
million-dollar compensation. Thus, CrimeFighters can use lawsuits to
collect an alternate reward from lawbreakers -- even for misdemeanors!

"The Litigation Explosion" book tells you all about civil suits, and all
the dirty tricks lawyers use to win and make millions of dollars. If you
use Qui Tam law to prosecute criminals you catch, report, or arrest, you
can sue them via civil suits and be 99% guaranteed of collecting a $1,000
to $10,000 award -- when the guilty party has sufficient assets to pay.

Read this book to learn all about civil suits and how you can use them to
collect "awards" as well as rewards, and how to win virtually every lawsuit
you initiate on your own -- without the assistance of a lawyer.

WITH JUSTICE FOR NONE,by Gerry Spence (1989), 8.5 X 5.5" softcover book.

"A scathing indictment of how law is taught, practiced, and administered in
this country... One of the best books ever written on the law." - The
Denver Post.

This book, like The Litigation Explosion, is a critical examination of the
law and corporate lawyers in particular. The writer, a well-know lawyer
from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, knows what he writes about and he does it well.
The book is entertaining because of the author's style of writing and home-
facts of HOW the law is being abused in the name of "justice", with justice
for none.

The contents of his book explains all the evils of the law as it now stands
n civil litigation - the "unfairness" of tort law (lawsuits). It also
mentions a lot of insider information on prosecutors and judges. If you

may not get a big reward, but you are eligible to apply under Title 18,
USCS 3059. If the reward isn't as much as you think it's worth, and there
may be some fines and forfeitures involved, consider prosecuting the case
yourself via Qui Tam law. You can also consider a lawsuit against the
lawbreaker to get paid a $1,000+ award.

The pay for a security guard is minimal. But, being a rent-a-cop puts you
n a position to look for lawbreakers; make citizen arrests; be eligible
for rewards; use Qui Tam law to be the prosecutor; and sue the perp's (if
they have any assets). A security guard's job might be considered as basic
training to get experience in a CrimeFighter role - doing all of the above.

Would you admit to getting your ass kicked with a hairbrush? Animal would,
because he knows it can happen. In fact, any tool that aids and abets
knocking someone into next week can be considered a weapon - not just the
lethal stuff like guns and knives. This book will broaden your definition
of what constitutes a weapon to include rope, beer bottles, pens, pool
cues, cats, tables and chairs, keys, gin and tonics and a whole lot more.

Your martial arts training is not likely to protect you from a guy coming
at you with a tire iron or baseball bat, so you'd better know how to wing
t with whatever's close at hand. Here, Animal tells you how the basic
categories of weapons look, feel and act so you can keep from getting
creamed when somebody tries to use any object, in any way, to waste you.
Equipped with a new understanding of "weapons" and how they work, you'll be
able to pick up damn near ANYTHING and use it to survive.

                         Almost Free Legal Advice
                       and Do-It-Yourself Legal Kits

Anyone who can read this CrimeFighter catalog can prepare standard-form
legal documents when they take the time to read the simple, but detailed,
forms. That's the idea of do-it-yourself Kits. There are "dozens" of such
Kits -- for all kinds of common, everyday legal documents. Incorporation
Kits are the most popular, but there are many others also available.
Ten such Kits are mentioned below for your thoughtful consideration.

You realize, I'm sure, lawyers don't do the clerical work. They have their
multitude of forms they have in their data bank. What you are really paying
for is a lawyer's legal advice. That may be worth $100 to $200, if you feel
you need legal advice.

A smarter option is to get your legal advice separately -- for $10 to $20!
Then get a do-it-yourself Kit for about $30. Fill in your own name and
addresses on standard-wording forms that are used by legal secretaries and

Local Bar Associations in every city in North America (Canada included),
fee of just $10 to $20. The charge is minimal to discourage free-loading,
but affordable to encourage you to make appointments. The cost varies from
city to city and depends on the local economy and affluence of the region.

The deal is an introductory offer. It's to encourage you to talk to a
lawyer to discuss your problem; to evaluate the lawyer before you commit
yourself to (perhaps) thousands of dollars of work; and for the lawyer to
assess your problem and suggest a solution and his fee for same. If you're
t will cost and can start the work by paying a retainer up front.

On the other hand, you aren't committed if you decide to talk to another
lawyer for another opinion and price. That lets you shop for a lawyer you
feel comfortable with in regards to personality, attitude, rates, etc. As a
business person, that's always a smart idea: to shop for the best deal.

For most common legal documents, the lawyer provides routine information
called "advice": and the secretary does the work! You usually don't need a
forms. In fact, paralegals in most states do the same thing at a fraction
of the cost of a lawyer-prepared documents. However, in some states and

The bottom line is, if all you have is a simple question or two, and the
answers are a yes or no, or standard information relevant to the documents,
all it costs is $10 or $20 maximum.  There's no need to visit a lawyer at

Use the Bar Association referral service. It's listed in the Yellow Pages
of your phone directory under LAWYERS or ATTORNEYS. Call them, get the name
of a lawyer who specializes or has experience in the services you need.

Call the lawyer, tell him the Bar Association gave you his name. (That puts
time in answering questions. It does not include any work that entails
legal advice about your problem, and to quote a fee for doing the work.

The best deal for intelligent people is to obtain legal advice separately
via this special deal from Bar Associations (when you feel you need it).
Use a well-prepared Kit and do your own work and save hundreds of dollars.

Said Kits have samples of filled-in forms; preprinted forms with blank
advice and will cost you about $200; and a set of preprinted forms with
blank spaces where you fill in the blanks with your own names, addresses,

users. Besides being the most complete Kits I've seen (and I've used dozens
of such Kits during the last 30 years) the author provides a TOLL FREE HELP
LINE which can be used to ask any question regarding any of the Kits he has

The Kits are designed for legal use in all 50 States. The instruction
manual that comes with with each Kit mentions any difference in law and the

bonus, you'll learn about the law and how to do-it-yourself from then on,
for the rest of your life. That can save you thousands of dollars.

(3) The Living Trust Kit is a low-cost option to the many lawyer sponsored
Living Trust and sell their services at $1,000 or more to do it for you.
By comparison, the booklet takes the place of the seminars (and is printed
for future reference). The preprinted forms and samples takes the place of
a lawyer's secretary. With this Kit, you can do it yourself for just $15!

The Kit includes a Will for the many things that may not be included in the
list of assets. (A lawsuit award for wrongful death from an accident (for
negligence), for example, paid to your estate after your death is not in
the living trust.)

The A-B Trust (Above and Below ground) is a revocable trust while you are
alive and in charge, and automatically legally transfers title of your
assets to the person(s) named in the trust when you die.

The main purpose of a Trust is to avoid Probate fees and inheritance taxes,
but it also provides a guaranteed legal disposal of your assets to the
over Wills by disgruntled heirs. Greedy lawyers often milk an estate dry
before they "settle" the estate. Living Trusts can avoid that problem.

Living Trust is essential.  If you have no Will or Trust, disposition of
your estate is in the hands of the court. In most cases, your estate will
be passed to your legal spouse, not the person whom you may want to have
t. If you have just a Will, it will be probated in court. First, lawyers

believes deserves it. If you were alive you might disagree. When you're

Beat them to the draw! A living trust lets you control your assets while
alive, and positively transfers ownership to the persons named in the
trust when you die. You, not lawyers or judges, are in Control when you

(4) A Living Will Kit is the companion to a Living Trust. A Living Will is
needed when you are permanently injured and can't care for yourself. It
allows you to designate someone to take care of you and your assets when
you can no longer make the decisions or pay the bills. The Kit has forms
yourself and loved ones.  Kit # 4, Living Will  $7.95.

(5) A Regular Will Kit. If you don't need or want a Living Trust (that
ncludes a Will) this Kit is a no-frills do-it-yourself Will Kit. The
booklet with detailed explanations is worth $13.
Kit # 5, Simple Will  $12.95

(6) Partnership Agreements for a business that isn't incorporated. In a few
cases, a legal partnership may provide some advantages over a corporate
entity. The smaller cost (no state incorporating fees or annual reporting
fees) is a consideration, but a minor one. There are also many drawbacks to
a legal business partnership, be sure to compare the pros and cons of each
type of business organization. If you decide a legal partnership is the
best for you, here's a Kit that can save you a few hundred dollars in legal
fees.  Kit # 6, Business Partnership  $19.95

(7) Pre-Marriage Agreements are standard fare for rich people. If you're a
are lots of people who marry for money only. You may be a target. This may
be O.K. if you're aware of it, but it could be a disaster if your spouse
of a few months were to sue for divorce and then ask for a huge alimony or
cash settlement far out of proportion to the benefits of a short honeymoon.
That's where pre-marriage agreements come in. They avoid that problem.

each spouse before marriage belongs to the original owners after divorce
(or death) and are not "joint property" because of marriage as it might be
considered in many states. Having such an agreement may save your marriage
as well as your money. With pre-marriage agreements, gold-diggers aren't
nterested, or are diverted to suckers who don't insist on such agreements.
Kit # 7, Pre-Marriage Agreement  $12.95

THE MAKING OF A COP, by Harvey Rachlin, (1991)

From the back cover:

"The making of a Cop is an accurate account of the rigorous discipline and
ntensive instruction in the police academy and of how that teaching
changes the lives of the young men and women who will soon be out there on
the streets."  Mark Baker, author of Cops.

Who are the men and women of the New York City Police Academy? What does it
take to survive this unforgiving urban boot camp and emerge a rookie, ready
for a beat on some of the meanest streets in the nation?

To find out, journalist Harvey Rachlin followed four raw recruits from the
Academy to the streets. His dramatic day by day account, THE MAKING OF A
COP, thrusts us into a world of age-old traditions and sudden-death

From the intricacies of criminal law to the blazing of .38's on the firing
eyes to a new and perilous world of perpetrators, lowlifes, search and
crack-crazed mugger, battling the legal machinery to preserve a "good"
bust. We see them absorb the knowledge which may one day save our lives -
or their own.

Taking us through the rigors, the grueling decisions and gut wrenching
fear, THE MAKING OF A COP is a compelling portrait of a group of men and

"The true story only Wambaugh could tell. A band of California cops set
loose in no-man's land to come home heroes, or come home dead.

Not since Joseph Wambaughs's bestselling THE ONION FIELD has there been a
true police story as fascinating, as totally gripping as ... LINES AND
SHADOWS. The media hailed them as heroes. Others denounced them as lawless
commando team sent to patrol the snake-infested no-man's-land south of San
Diego. Not to apprehend the thousands of illegal aliens slipping into the
U.S., but to stop the ruthless bandits who preyed on them nightly -

The task force plan was simple. They would disguise themselves as illegal
aliens. They would confront the murderous shadows at night. Yet each time
they walked into the violent blackness along the border, they came closer
to another boundary line - a fragile line within each man. And crossing it
meant destroying their sanity and their lives.

With each book, it seems, Mr Wambaugh's skill as a writer increases. In
LINES AND SHADOWS he gives an off-trail, action-packed true account of

Author: William B. McGhee

A book-reader program makes the 150 page, 24 chapter book easy to read.

This is a book/catalog of descriptions on 400+ CrimeFighter books and
videos of law enforcement related subjects. Many are highly controversial
and won't be found in book stores. Highly recommended for CrimeFighters.

Law enforcement officers too, can upgrade their technical knowledge in many
areas that aren't taught in Police Academies. And everyone who is concerned
about crime and fighting crime need to know what the crooks know as a form
of self-defense against the perps who now take advantage of them.
