The Mean Streets Books are about the service years of the author in the South African Police Force - 1985-1991. The Police Force had almost nothing in common with a Sheriff's Department. The policemen were fighting as light & mechanized infantry besides being policemen. We dealt with violent crime, counter-terrorism, counter-insurgency and full scale riots on a daily base. It is much more than a biography about policing the mean streets...the books explain how an honorable police force became an "instrument of terror." It is a stark warning on what happens when unscrupulous politicians get control of a highly disciplined police force and there is no Bill of Human Rights to stop them from implementing the laws, no matter how unfair it may be. The first book is a brutally honest and unconventional account of the Author's basic training and other events at the South African Police College in Pretoria.
