Police recording of my traffic stop, raid and arrest mysteriously mailed to me

barry curses cops while arrested

I was mysteriously mailed a CD with no return address. I was shocked to discover it was the audio recording of the traffic stop, home raid and my arrest Williamson County conducted in March 2010. The search warrant was for all of my films, camera and other media.

The incident took place five days after I released a youtube video showing a deputy stealing drug money I had planted during one of my KopBuster stings.

My lawyers stated it was legal to publish.

I quickly ripped a one minute portion of the one hour plus recording. I'll publish the entire recording next week.


About Barry Cooper

"You may have seen him on the pages of Maxim, or during one of his many appearances on CNN, Fox News and Spike TV. He’s the cop who turned against the drug war. In American pop culture right now, there’s nobody quite like him. As one of the former top drug cops working the Texas highways, he was ferocious, bringing down hundreds of people for possessing even tiny amounts of an illegal substance. In his new life as a humanitarian crusader and activist filmmaker, he’s just as ferocious. Cooper is on a mission to free America’s pot prisoners. In the terminology of war, Barry is an insurgent, lobbing bombs into the fourth estate as his form of penance for all the people he put behind bars on drug offenses.”—True/Slant Barry recently starred with Woody Harrelson, 50 Cent, Eminem and Susan Sarandon in the anti drug war documentary, “How To Make Money Selling Drugs.” His internet fame via his website has received global attention by being reported in Rolling Stones, High Times, a feature in Maxim Magazine and a front cover feature in Cannabis Culture and the Texas Observer. His story was picked as a feature on NPR’s, This American Life. He has been a guest on scores of cable news channels discussing the Drug War. He has also appeared as a drug and legal expert in five episodes of SPIKE TV’s reality show, MANSWERS.
