The Permit

The Permit, by William B. Scott, published by Pygmy Books, Woodland Park, CO, copyright 2012, ISBN 978-0-9842063-5-3

This book was sent to me free by the publisher in exchange for a review.  The book is about a man who was shot to death by police who were responding to a man with a gun call at a store in Nevada, the man had a concealed carry permit.  The man's father wrote this fictionalized account of the incident and it's aftermath as part of his attempt to obtain justice for his son.

Most of the book reads as a screed against police officers.  Police are generally considered to be criminals, bullies, and just looking for an opportunity to get into a shooting to kill someone.  The book also includes Federal authorities from the NSA who go around, vigilante style, murdering police with high tech weapons to infect them with deadly diseases, including mad cow disease.

The final straw was the end of the book when the main character sees the police involved in this shooting, in the afterlife.  The author describes their evil lives and the toll it has taken on their souls.  Their lives are so corrupt that they may not even be allowed to be reincarnated into new bodies after a period of rehabilitation.  So just to re-cap; the police are bullies and murderers, the Federal government murders American citizens using high technology weapons, and the God of the Bible is false, but reincarnation is true.  While I am sorry this man's son was killed, this is a terrible book and I do not recommend it to anyone; that's what the SGT Says.

I suggest the author move to a country where the police and government actually are evil, say Iran, and see how easy it is to get his hate speech published.

While I can understand how difficult it can be to lose a loved one, the reality of the event must be taken into consideration. I think this author knows very little about police work but thinks he knows it all.
