Just got it cut, Morgan Wright, here literally with my partner in crime. Murph, who's almost bald and your hair looks like crap. My hair doesn't look like crap. It looks like crap. No, it doesn't. It looks marvelous. I've got so much. She says, the person who cut my hair said, when you come in after six weeks, it's like most people's eight weeks or 10 weeks. So I get a lot of hair. Hey, when I go in and get a haircut, it takes like three minutes. I'm in and out. There you go. You sure that's a haircut? Be nice now. I'm just starting this. Please, please don't pay attention to him, ladies and gentlemen. I'm sorry, okay. We're trying to gain some professional help. Yeah, whatever. All right, how's that working out for you?

But Murph, I'm telling you, we're gonna have some fun on Patreon. Patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. I have a 911 call coming up for you. Of all the 911 calls, I guarantee you nobody, nobody has taken a call like this before that I'm aware of ever, anywhere. Looking forward to hearing this one. Holy cow. There's gonna be a couple. This one, I don't know if I can make an entire case out of it, but I've listened to it. And just the sheer confusion on the call taker, they've never been presented with this before. So we'll have to talk about that. But guys, we just did our warden of the throne. It's a unique little thing we're doing now. Rather than just taking one topic, Murph brings two topics. I bring two topics. We're allowed to get into things that are catching our interest for the previous month or some stories. So we just did one talking about Philadelphia and the looting, Iran, and what they call the Iranian experts initiative. People have had their security clearance suspended. You talk about some tragic cases up in New York, the Bronx, baby dying at daycare center, and the recent death of that CEO by a sexual predator who should have still been in prison, but wasn't. Right, in Baltimore. So those are a lot of good things. We've got Q &A coming up, 911, what's your emergency case of the month? So guys, all good stuff. You don't hear this anywhere else, but on patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. But the other place you gotta be though too, Murph, our favorite mafia queen with the iron fist with the velvet glove. You gotta head on over there, watch what Sandy Salvato is doing with our Game of Crimes fans page. Just go to Facebook, type in Game of Crimes fans, answer a couple easy questions, get admitted to the Inner Sanctum in YouTube. You will see what goes on behind the scenes, behind the curtains. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain because that's one of our favorite people happening over on Game of Crimes fans. It's a lot of fun. There's a lot of humor there. A lot of dark humor too. If you saw some of the stuff people have posted, I hope you guys, I hope your healthcare plan supports you with an employee assistance program. I'm telling you. I don't know what you're talking about. Here's what I'm talking about. You know what I'm talking about now because you know what time it is. Guess what? I'm gonna ask you, do you know what time it is? Guess what time it is? Come on, give me a clue. It's time for Small Town Police Blotter. Hey, this because in honor of our guest that's coming up, Mark Cameron, the author, we'll talk about him in a second, but he went from Texas, lives in Alaska. So I thought we should have an Alaska theme. There you go. For our Small Town Police Blotter. So Murph, gotta ask you. Yes. This comes out of the Alaska Dispatch News. You know, a lot of fishery stuff, a lot of crabbing, a lot of lobster stuff, a lot of that goes on in Alaska, doesn't it? Mm -hmm, mm -hmm. So you have an idea. You go, hey, we're gonna take a crabbing boat and we're gonna convert it into a floating bar and strip club. What could go wrong, right? Oh my gosh. So 54 -year -old Darren Byler of Kodiak and his 46 -year -old wife, Kimberly, own the Wild Alaskan, a former crabbing boat that's been converted into a floating bar and strip club. Apparently it's doing pretty well. They've been running the business since June, but now they're in serious legal trouble and Murph, it's not for stripping. Uh -oh, what is it? This gives new meaning to, you know, why this is on a crabbing boat. So if you're out there floating, you have to provide facilities for people to use, right? So if they use the facilities, number one and number two, you should probably find a way to take care of that other than dumping it into the ocean. Oh, come on, come on. So they were just indicted by a federal grand jury for improper disposal of human waste after they were caught dumping feces from their bathroom into the harbor, as they say in Maine, into the harbor. Instead of taking the waste tanks to the proper places on shore, they both could be facing up to one year in jail and $25 ,000 in fine, but that's not the worst part. The worst part is the Coast Guard said they lied about dumping the tanks, and if they're convicted of that, making false statements to the Coast Guard investigators, that could get them five years in prison and $250 ,000 in fines. Cha -ching. I tell you what, you gotta do a lot of stripping to make that kind of money. It's a shitty situation they got themselves in. It's terrible. This whole thing just stinks. It stinks, man, stinks to high heaven. Tell you what, you know, you had a turd in one hand and wishes in the other. Anyway, we could go lots of places with that, so. These people didn't move to Alaska from Florida, did they? I don't believe so. Thank goodness. Hey, but I went back into the archives too, so I pulled some articles out of the Alaska News Archives, the Fairbanks Daily News Minor. This comes to us January 21st, 1955, and I'm telling you, the stories are hilarious. These are quick hits. And not always, but this is what's in Alaska. This is what's important in Alaska, January of 1955. The Tokyo police hire pretty hostesses. Tokyo police, grieved by complaints that their headquarters is unattractive, have assigned four pretty girls to meet people at the building's two entrances. Officials have also ordered the women to take charm courses. That is what's important in the Alaska, you know, the Fairbanks Daily News Minor. The other thing you gotta do here, be prepared. And this comes to us, it's out of Tucson, Arizona, but in the Fairbanks Daily News Minor. This is 1955, a 15 -year -old boy with a loaded .38 caliber pistol in his waistband was removed from high school class here by police. His explanation for carrying a gun, a couple of those teachers were giving me a hard time. Well, geez, okay. Okay, but this one though, this one has gotta be, this is it. This is St. Monaface. I believe this is Alaska, no, Manitoba. This is St. Monaface, Manitoba. All right. Police were certain the worst of the winter is upon them. Pete Nikoluk has started his annual jail term for vagrancy. Nikoluk has spent the past 21 winters in jail on vagrancy charges. Police says he always manages to get arrested just before the coldest part of the winter sets in. Who says this guy's not smart? Three hots and a cot, and I get through the toughest part of winter. Oh my goodness. That's, well, you know, that's prior planning, I guess. Prior planning prevents piss -poor performance, the 6Ps. There you go. Yep. You ask my children, they'll tell you what the 6Ps are. That's right. Murph, now, we'll finish up with this. I went and looked at what are some of the strangest laws in Alaska, and these are definitely Alaskan. It is illegal to whisper in someone's ear why they are moose hunting. Okay. It's legal to shoot bears. However, it is illegal to wake a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking a photograph. Why would you wake a sleeping bear? Isn't that the truth? Here's another thing, and I don't get it. It is considered an offense. It's illegal to feed alcoholic beverages to a moose. What? Why? Huh. Apparently, it's also illegal to sell stun guns to children. That one, I kind of get that makes sense. Well, if you're in Fairbanks, Alaska, if you love a vuvuzula, remember what they did during the World Cup. You know, you blow those things that make a lot of noise. Those annoying things? Yeah, it's illegal to blow a horn in a manner that disrupts the peace. Good. Yep. So, it's illegal to fatten up a sheep, cow, or pig within the city limits of Fairbanks. Are we talking about people or animals? Well, maybe it's meatball, and you'll have to listen to her. You'll have to listen to our warden of the throne. All right, it is also a crime to speak so loud that you offend a sensitive person enough to make him, her, or her leave if you're in Fairbanks. What? Okay, well, hey, be nice. That's just be nice. And you can only carry a concealed slingshot if you have received the appropriate license. The license. Do you have a license for that slingshot? All right. Oh, okay. I didn't know you had to have that. But Murph, this is the craziest one. This reminds me of an episode of you and JP on Narcos where you were accused of doing this, not a moose, but it is an offense to push a live moose out of a moving airplane. Well, you know, I gotta agree with that, but have you seen how big a moose is? How do you push it anywhere? Well, how do you get it into the damn airplane to begin with is what I wanna know. And who wants a moose, a pissed off moose, in their airplane? Uniquely Alaskan. So Mark Cameron, as we get into this, and again, we wanna thank our buddy, Patrick O 'Donnell, Cops and Writers. Go listen to his podcast. Hooked us up with him, but Mark Cameron is an interesting dude, moved from Weatherford, Texas to Alaska. And we're gonna talk about his book that was just released. It's an Arliss Kutter novel, Breakneck, by Mark Cameron. But the interesting thing too, Murph, was he wrote the last seven Tom Clancy novels. And this is a guy that used to be a marshal, which most of the reports were saw bad guy, put him in jail, you know? Not extensive reports in the marshal service. Saw a fugitive, arrested, same.
A highlight from 117: Part 1: Charles Lutz Takes on Unpopular Causes from Vietnam to DEA to TSA
"We dispensing are with our usual introduction, because apparently it has triggered ads in foreign languages, so. Has it really? Yes, we're getting some people apparently, some folks, depending on what part of the country you're in, have been receiving Spanish language ads when I do my traditional introduction. Really? We'll just say, we'll give the redneck. Well, hey, we'll see if it comes out in redneck. Hey, hey, hey, y 'all, what's up? It's Bubba and Bubby. It's Bubba, and it's my brother, Darrell, and my other brother, Darrell. My brother, Darrell, my other brother, Darrell. Yeah, well, hey, guys, welcome to Game of Crimes podcast. Let's see, we'll see if it changes the algorithm. Hey, guys, as always, welcome back. Just before we get started, just a little bit of quick housekeeping, head on over to Apple Spotify. Hit those five stars. We've been getting a lot of good comments. People are leaving some stuff. Spotify allows you to give comments on the episode. Guys, we really appreciate that. Also head on over to our website, gameofcrimespodcast .com. We will have the book, when we talk about our guests, listed there as well, too. Go to our book page. We've got some fabulous books coming out and some fabulous guests. So gameofcrimespodcast .com. Follow us on that thing they call social media at Game of Crimes on Twitter, Game of Crimes podcast on Facebook and the Instagram. And also check out our favorite mafia queen, Sandy Salvato, who runs the Game of Crimes fan page with a, you know, iron fist and velvet glove. That's right. Just go to facebook .com and just put in Game of Crimes fans and you will be just, hey, answer a couple quick questions, get admittance to the inner sanctum where all the good stuff happens. But you know where else good stuff happens, Murph? Where is that? Patreon slash .com Game of Crimes. We've got some good stuff. We just, I think we did a really good case of the month. We talked about the ambush killing of the deputy in Klinkenbroomer out in Los Angeles. And we talked about the escapee, which by the way, Murph. So folks, they got to listen if you're not on there, but you actually got, you were on the national news talking with Lawrence Jones about that. I was, and it's a very short interview. So don't get excited, but we're talking about the fugitive in Pennsylvania because since then there's been two more in other states. Yeah, well, and we give you our thoughts about that one, but it had to be short because it was late at night and Murph usually is asleep by that time, so. They don't know that I got my pajama bottoms on underneath my shirt I'm wearing. I don't want to know. I don't want to know. Hey guys, but that's where the fun stuff happens. But yeah, and the other thing too, real quick, Murph, before we get into talking about one of our fun things, you will be appearing on CBS in a show. You can't talk about it yet. Oh, I can't talk about it yet? I just got picked up last night for a second episode. Well, then I will cut this part out. No, no, it's okay. I just don't name the show yet. Oh, don't name the show. So we can talk about it. We just can't talk about it. Not sure when it's going to be released. Originally they were saying fall, but now they're saying late winter, early spring. So we'll see. We won't say, is it okay to say CBS? You already did. Well, we can edit this out. Is it okay to leave it in? Yeah, it's fine. Okay. If it's not, I'll hear about it. I doubt that they listened to our podcast, but anyway. Hey, I tell you what, the crew, you know, I gave them all business cards and they're like, oh, I'm going to listen to it tonight. So, all righty. Well, we won't say anything, but just suffice it to say is that you will, if things work out, we'll be seeing you on the telly. It just shows you how hard they are for talent. Boy, are they? Let's hope that this writer's strike resolves itself really soon in actors. Well, no, no, no, no. Cause as long as it's unscripted, I'm making money.
A highlight from 116: Part 1: Eric McBride and the December 2015 San Bernardino Terrorist Attack
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playerettes, dudettes, everybody in between, welcome back. This is the follow -on episode to last week with Rick Prado on the 22nd anniversary of 9 -11. We had a theme going here, we wanted to follow through on this next theme, and we'll tell you about that here in just a second, but first of all, welcome. As always, I'm here. I'm Morgan. I'm here literally with my partner in crime, and we're going to do what we did last time. I know some of you guys like small town police water, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to do that when we're talking about something as serious as when we talked about 9 -11. And then this month we're talking with Eric McBride. He retired as the chief of police in San Bernardino City. If you guys remember, Alex Collins we had on was a deputy with San Bernardino County. His partner was killed, Jamie McBride. He was wounded by a piece of shit. We don't even want to mention his name. But we're getting into now the December 2015 terrorist attack at the city of San Bernardino. Fourteen people killed, I think twenty -seven wounded, and it just didn't seem right to follow on. You know, we wanted to have a couple serious discussions, so that's kind of what it was. So before we get started though, just a couple quick things. Head on over to Apple, Spotify, hit those five stars. Let us know what you thought of last week's episode. Let us know what you think of this week's episode. And don't worry folks, next week we'll get back into small town police water. Also head on over to our website, gameofcrimespodcast .com, our book from our prior guest, Rick Prado. You'll see that up there, Black Ops, The Life of a CIA Shadow Warrior. Great reading. You just got to get it. We've got everything you need there. Follow us on social media at Game of Crimes on Twitter, at Game of Crimes podcast on Facebook and the Instagram. But follow us on Patreon too, patreon .com slash gameofcrimes. We just recorded some great episodes. You can't make this shit up. We've got 9 -1 -1, Case of the Month. One rule we made is Murph never gets to pick a movie again. He has to submit it for review before we review it. I promise to do better in the future. Well, because you're on the hook for next month. All right. But guys, we have a lot of good stuff over there. Everything about, you know, we get into funny stuff, we get into serious stuff. Our Case of the Month has been recommended by you, the listeners out there. So head on over there, patreon .com slash gameofcrimes. Now this is a show about crime. We normally are fun and jovial because this is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously and that's how we're going to do it. This is not about us having fun and joking at the expense of a serious incident like this. So our next guest, Aaron McBride, like we said, retired as the chief of police, worked his way up from patrol officer, but started off as a Marine, formerly on active duty. He's got some good stories there, but he comes to us through another long list of people, a family of service, the McBrides out in California. He does. You know, our good buddy out in San Diego, Mel Sosa, made an introduction for us, got us to Eric. But the McBride family is well known in the law enforcement circles out there as brother Jamie, his niece Tony, and then Jamie's other daughter are all police officers out there that have experienced violence that, you know what, most cops in the United States don't have to experience. I'm not sure what's going on with the McBride family here, but you know what, they don't shy away from it and they don't run away. They address the issues as they come to them, and they're protecting their communities. Eric here was just the fact that, I mean, he's a trendsetter. You're going to hear him talk about his high school career, getting out of high school early so he could join the Marine Corps early. And his whole life is service to his community and his fellow man. And you know, in my book, there's no greater calling that you're willing to dedicate your life to work for the public. A public servant, I think, is a term of a hero. And that's certainly who we have on here today. And I'll tell you, again, we've got to thank our buddies out there, Southern California Gang Conference, Mel Sosa, all of those people. They're brothers to us. They get us great gifts, great gifts, great guests, which are gifts for things like this. And I'll tell you, you've really got to sit down and listen to this because one of the things that's going to come out of this is stuff that has not really been talked about in the media before, and you'll hear him talk about a call that was received. He's been briefing this to law enforcement. On the day of, he was the, quote, deputy incident commander, but he was the incident commander for all intents and purposes. And so he's not the one at the tip of the spear out there, but this guy has the overview of everything going on. You're going to hear things that went well. You're going to hear about things that didn't go so well. But we will never get to hearing any of this, Murph, unless I ask you, are you ready to play the biggest, baddest? And as we see in this episode, too, the most dangerous game of all, the game of crime. Absolutely. So everybody get in, sit down, shut up, hold on. You're getting ready to hear a story about an incident that I wasn't even aware of, a terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California. So Eric, tell us what's going on, brother.
A highlight from The CoverBag with Murp McCarthy
"Marine veteran Murph McCarthy is the creator of the cover bag the best protection for your dress hat or dress uniform cover Coming up next on veteran on the move Welcome to veteran on the move if you're a veteran in transition an entrepreneur wannabe or someone still stuck in that J -o -b trying to escape this podcast is dedicated to your success And now your host Joe Crain As a member owned not -for -profit Navy Federal puts members at the heart of every single thing they do Find out more at Navy federal org All right today we're talking with Marine Corps veteran Murph McCarthy owner of the cover bag calm and The women's rugby coach at the Naval Academy, that's pretty cool So Murph welcome to the show before we get to talking about business and entrepreneurship As a marine fellow aviator having had one of those on this show for a long time. Tell us what you did in the Marine Corps yes, so I Actually, I enlisted right out of high school and things went really well I was a tower air traffic controller and I ended up at the prep school for the Naval Academy and then graduated from the Naval Academy in 2000 then TBS and then went to down to Pensacola and When so helos went out to the FRS out there in Camp Pendleton quickly fell in love with it learned how to fly frogs Then I went to East Coast and I did two deployments on the East Coast And when I came back from that second one, there was a bunch of ospreys on the tarmac you know, I wasn't sure I wanted to get into that so I solicited my services back out to Camp Pendleton and then I ended up with the Purple Did foxes a couple deployments with them and then along the road. I got I got the the drone stink on me Stick with VMU doing drones and when it came time for me to get out of the cockpit I actually my services were sought by people other than myself To go do that again. So I went To VMU three and did a couple deployments With those guys then I came back to the Naval Academy where I was working in the Stockdale Center for ethical leadership and I was teaching leadership and that's when I started coaching rugby at the Academy in 2011 and then I had one last gig down at DITRA defense threat reduction agency where I was doing I was working on the open skies treaty which is a fascinating gig if you can get it, and I don't think you can get it anymore, but and then I retired in 2017 and You know, that was my Marine Corps story from the end of high school 92 to 2017 interesting so You know, sometimes transition is different. You're retiring because at least you got that paycheck of the month club membership, but Sometimes retirement isn't any easier than you know being in being in the military for four years and then getting out also So what was your transition like? Well, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do when I grew up You know, I was still like volunteering coaching rugby and that I Didn't see myself ever getting out of that because that was just a really fun thing for me to do It filled a lot of the you know, what you miss about the Marine Corps stuff for me But I started looking into a couple different business opportunities. I Started a business before I retired probably almost ten years before I retired and that was the cover bag and what ended up being the cover bag calm and that just grew and grew and grew to where You know, I could definitely take up a lot of time just working that when I retired But I'm I knew that was I wanted one more thing at least And that's when I started looking into other business opportunities and I got into fitness I a started franchise in Annapolis and did that I looked at a Number of other franchise opportunities, but I knew fitness was probably going to be what I wanted to do, right? So Was there an entrepreneurial bug inside of you the whole time? You're in the Marine Corps to just come about at a later time Totally. Yeah, like I've been into that kind of thing when I was since I was a kid So I remember getting in trouble for selling fireworks in the bathroom at my junior high school You know, I came up with ideas for stuff to put on ball caps Slinging t -shirts like that was always a thing but the cover bag was an idea I had when I went to the Naval Academy and You know, you're always wearing that combination cover like in the Marine Corps You're lucky especially if you're in aviation like you already ever even see that thing Yeah, buddy with the chicken you're trucking that thing all around all the time and it's white And you know, all you got to do is sit on it once or you know Be holding an ink pen that you probably should have retired a week before next to it And you gotta take the whole thing apart or buy new parts or buy a new one And I'm like man if I just had a bag for this thing, so it was like a couple years of me sketching out what it probably should look like and then designing it and then You know once you make the first couple and then you kind of go from there, but no I've always had that Hey, wouldn't this be a good idea Like I probably I probably do that like three times a week. Yeah, I've always been the same way but I think like especially when I was when you're a kid or when you're really young you have no idea how to Capitalize on your idea like yeah idea how to implement it or execute. I mean, you just don't have those capabilities and then especially nowadays with the internet and all the technology and everything and in Alibaba and China and all these resources that are available You can you could come up with a harebrained idea in just a few months be taking it to market Whereas like 20 30 years ago. It was like almost impossible to do to do. Yeah. No, and that's something you People should keep in mind. Like if you've got what you think is a crazy idea Just keep kind of fleshing it out and then you know for me it was a buddy of mine He's like, hey, I got a buddy who's got a hat and bag factory in Newark, New Jersey And why don't you send me that sketch you talked about? So I sent it to him and the guy produced a demo and And that was the first one like just like that dude. That's awesome.

So When I saw your interview come through Murph I gotta admit I'm like the cover bag and I went to your website and I saw it and I'm like ding I get it instant instant like yep thumbs up and Cuz my wife and I were Amazon sellers for many years. We're totally out of the business now. Amazon just got to be Amazon was like walking through a minefield you like you thinking you're fine all sudden kaboom your right leg's missing You're like what the fuck? anyways So we're out of Amazon now, but I loved Amazon cuz like we talked about earlier when you're when you're young You come all these hair brained ideas. That's a great idea for product That's a great idea and I could I could run them to ground and be and be putting it on Amma be putting a great product on Amazon, you know within a few months sometimes Sometimes that's not a good thing because if it turned out not to be a good idea you lose a lot of money At least I could exercise these ideas for the first time in my life. And so I have a true appreciation for a great product and I Remember, you know getting my uniforms at the Marine Corps shop or the marine the marine shop in there in Quantico And I think I still have that white shredded cardboard box with my white cover in it somewhere back in storage and and I The whole time I'm like, how am I supposed to carry this thing around? I mean for 20 plus years in the Marine Corps I carded that thing around in a cardboard box and somehow it managed to work out for him when I saw the cover bag I'm like, oh, yeah, like I get it that that's it. Like like how did how'd you just come up with that idea? It was just I mean I get it It's like it's like a problem every one of us dealt with but nobody ever thought of the idea or at least executed on the idea Yeah, well, I always thought we you know, they're expensive So all you gotta do is have to replace one and you're like man, how do I not do that again? Yeah, and that's where it started but when I had You know that run -in with my buddy's friend who said he could make me a demo I was like a demo sounds like it sounds like I'm in it But he he produced, you know The first cover bag from my sketch and I and all I had was like a little couple tweaks And he sent I ordered about 15 of them and I opened up the box of these 15 cover bags And I handed him out to the guys that were doing the color guard For the ball when we had the ball the next night and when the Marines were like, holy shit, sir This is awesome. Where'd you get these? I was like funny story like I invented that and they're like what and then I knew that I had something and that's Really? Yeah pulling my money together and like spending quality time thinking about how I was gonna do it Wow Yeah, I got like a thousand questions cuz and like I said, I'm a product guy Like I love cool products and the idea behind it. So interviewing somebody that created a product it became successful Because it was just the right idea and Let me tell you man. I don't know if you realize this bit. It is hard to find to Manufacture something in the US and it's great that this is a military product Which by the way, I want to point out like I know in the Navy Marine Corps. We call it a cover your uniform hat The other services. I'm sure the Air Force didn't call it a cover. They probably caught a hat I'm not I'm not sure about the army But you know, I want to point out a cut the cover is your official military head piece or your you know It's your military hat but in the Marine Corps Navy, we call it the cover So your product is called the cover bag But I suppose you you wouldn't have wanted to call it the hat bag because then it would have just been like anything No, and I you know how you always wondered like you watch a commercial Or hear like a radio ad you're like I'm confused but like three minutes later you're still talking about it I think some of that. Yes, I think some of that has happened with calling it the cover back You know because I thought that I was gonna be selling to guys like you and me Like I thought this was gonna be you know by the troops for the troops type thing Yeah, but I have a ton of customers that are moms and Grandmas wives like they don't know what a cover is So they're like I pick up the phone and somebody says cat bag 95 % of the time really and I just I just kind of roll with it because it's one of those You got all these old ladies buying it to you're talking about it. So let's keep that up It's like the the the Red Hat Ladies Club is buying your bag for their hats and stuff or fancy hat No, they're buying it for their husband's boyfriend's grandchildren The cover bag is a huge gift idea like I'll send I'll sell like six figures worth of these things through the Marine Corps exchanges in a year I sell a lot more than that to friends and families of people graduating Parris Island and MCRD San Diego. It's it's absolutely fascinating and Much in the same way as cover bags hat bags hat covers all that stuff My favorite is that you know, I don't pay anything for advertising like I tried it a couple times It was to me It was like wasting money because I couldn't figure out if it was doing anything at all But people will get on Facebook and argue about what should be Embroidered on the cover bag. No, it should be last name first name. No, it should just be the initials No It should be first name and then the middle name and then the last name and I'm like this is amazing because it'll go on And then the website goes ding ding ding Yeah, well I suppose you know first initial middle initial last name, you know, maybe rank before that might you know if you're selling them to all the eighth and I Marines if it becomes that if he becomes a Regular issue piece of gear. Well, then you gotta you gotta do by right? I think that's probably eventually gonna happen. Yeah Yeah, the Marines like solve a lot of your problems. They just make you do stuff The Marine Corps ever figures out. Hey, we don't want anybody walking around with a bad -looking cover again We're gonna put one of them cover bags in their c -bag issue. Yeah, that's it. That'll solve that. Yeah Yeah, well then they won't have to walk around with it in you in there with their bent arm and hand, you know So So what are some of your numbers that you can share with us or just to give us a perspective on? How successful the cover bags? Well, to be honest The company's not openly for sale, so I'm not really in tune exactly with the numbers But I've been trying to get in with the Navy exchange So the last gentleman that worked there He didn't really understand and like how the cover bag was an amazing piece of gear But they're starting to get the memo now and the main number I've been talking with them is like hey Do you know I I do over six figures worth of business with the MCX at the Navy exchanges of which there is many Many more. Can you imagine how good this would do if it was available? Yeah to the Navy first hand and then retail, you know I do I do a lot more business retail than I do goals for sale. So well, dude, that's awesome. This is good you're always gonna need to protect that cover and like I said the the parents and Girlfriends wives and grandparents are on Facebook talking about what needs to be on a cover bag and they're like, what's a cover bag? Cover and then there I am my website just gets the pinks. Yeah You know, it's like that the old the old Henry Ford story where he says Well, if I had asked the customer what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse, you know, or right There's a quote similar from Steve Jobs Like sometimes the customer doesn't really know what they're looking forward what they need until they see it You can have any color car you want as long as it's black the other Henry Ford one yeah, and The cover bags kind of like that because if you said what's one of the biggest, you know You know pain in the ass things you do you deal with with your uniform? Nobody would have said I wish I had something to carry my cover in but I mean hardly anybody would have said that but When they see when they see the cover bag, they're like, oh, yeah I want one of them because I that is a pain point for me I just never realized that there would be as ever solution for it yeah, no, it's it's a no -brainer and eat and like People that aren't, you know actively using the cover like the parents can figure out that a cover bags a great idea And the other thing is, you know, mom's don't want to be buying their kids, you know, whiskey flasks and knives Something Practical they're not gonna put alcohol in or possibly shank somebody with It works out pretty good to get him a cover back and embroidery everybody loves embroidery that Yeah Now it's got your name on it, oh, yeah The embroidery thing for the cover bag is when it really exploded Yeah, and there's a nice big surface area on the thing for plenty of embroidery you can Yeah It takes a while if you come up with a design and you want me to put it on there that takes a little more time a little more involved, but I got plenty of patch choices and You can put whatever name you want on there nicknames Like if people get too wrapped up in what name they want in there or what order I'll be like Does your does your son have a pretty cool nickname? They're like, oh, yeah, we call him Sparky.
A highlight from 115: Part 1: Ric Prado Hunts Osama bin Laden and Leads the CIA Response after 9/11
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playwrights, dudettes, everybody in between, welcome. This is a special edition of Game of Crimes. We're going to dispense with a couple of things that we normally do, small town police water, things like that, because number one, it's the 22nd anniversary of 9 -11, never forget. And this episode and the following episode that you'll find, too, that we'll be talking about the issues of terrorism. So nothing funny about terrorism, nothing funny about all these people dying. But our next guest, we'll talk about him in a minute, but we just kind of want to set that stage real quickly, though. Thank you guys for joining us. Morgan here, joined by my partner in crime. Hey, it's Murph, everybody. Yeah, hey, guys, head on over to Apple, Spotify, hit those five stars, really means a lot. And after this episode, I think you'll realize why hearing stories like this are so important. So head on over there, head on over to our website, GameOfCrimesPodcast .com. The link to our next guest book, what we'll be talking about, you're going to find that there are all sorts of good stuff there. Follow us on that thing they call social media at Game of Crimes on Twitter, at Game of Crimes Podcast on Facebook and the Instagram. But look, join us over on Patreon, Patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. We just got through recording. You can't make this shit up. Had some fun there. We did our Q &A, which is one of the funnest things we do. I think it's the most fun we have because it's driven by you, our players, right? It's a blast. It's a blast. And we've got good stuff. We got some good comments on our previous episode, 911, what's your emergency? Which was actually recommended to us by one of our guests out there, Bunny, if she's listening. That was her asking about that. So we did that. So hey, good stuff. But yeah, guys, just head on over to Patreon .com. A lot of good stuff. We've got 911, what's your emergency? We've got our Narcometer review, our monthly Q &A, case of the month, you know, and so we have a lot of fun. So join us there. Patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. Now, this is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. But in this case, we take the story seriously, you know, we don't take ourselves seriously. Exactly. But in this case, we wanted to just take out some of this because our next guest, Murph came to us by way of a friend of the show again, good friend of the show, Patrick O 'Donnell. Yes, sir. And thank you, Patrick, again, for introducing us to Rick. This guy is a true American patriot and hero. Rick Prado is our guest today, worked as an ops officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. Now, if you've heard me talk in the past, I make jokes about what CIA stands for. But if you've ever seen our presentation, I explained that it's not an indictment of the entire agency. It was one particular person we had problems with while we worked in Colombia. The agency, in my opinion, is one of the best in the world. Everybody dogs them out because they can't publicly defend themselves because everything they do is secret, which goes to protecting our country. So, you know, I know a lot of you probably want to agree to that and you've had bad experiences or you just believe with crap you see on TV or in the movies. But Rick's going to straighten out a lot of that stuff today. You're going to hear stories that you're not going to hear anywhere else. And let me tell you, too, the great thing about Rick is we knew some of the same people and actually one of our guests we had on, Tracy Walder, previously, had just come on the agency at that time. But Rick was in charge of the Counterterrorism Center, CTC, for CIA. When you talk about the tip of the spear, they were the tip of the spear before the tip of the spear got in there, before the Green Berets got in there, before the first military boots were on the ground. It was CIA, their paramilitary officers. Guys, this is a story, you know, and I know people say, we dispel a lot of stuff. But here's the important thing, Rick gets into, we actually have some very candid discussions around 9 -11, the current threat of terrorism, what's going on in the world. We dispel and disabuse people to some of these notions about enhanced interrogation techniques. It's not torture. I know some people disagree with that. It's not torture. Not when we put our folks through the same thing. He'll talk about seer training. But I think the biggest thing that I got out of this, Murph, was just listening. Here's another guy like Jack Garcia, came out of Cuba, fled Castro. These people know what communism looks like. They know how bad this stuff is. And they came to this country. His first firefight was at seven years old. He's going to tell you about that. First time, not that he was actually directly involved, but he was in the middle of a firefight at seven years old with automatic weapons. Again, it's just what an American, you know what the American story is, Murph? Here's somebody who comes to America, loves America, wants to do everything they can to defend and protect America against all enemies and foreign and domestic. And here's another guy that's living proof of the thing you always say, just because we retire doesn't mean our oaths expire. What he's currently doing is great. So hey, look, we're going to, like I said, we're going to dispense with a lot of stuff. We just want to get right into the episode. So before we can talk about this episode, Murph, there is one thing we do have to do. Before we talk about this, I need to ask you, are you ready to play? And you guys will realize this. In honor of 9 -11, the biggest, baddest, most dangerous game of all, the game of crimes. Everybody get in, sit down, shut up and hold on. Bring Rick on a true American patriot. Unbelievable what you're getting ready to hear.

We got our Q and A coming out. You can't make this shit up. We did our Narcometer review, which Murph will never be allowed to recommend another movie for Narcometer review without prior review.

Answer a couple of questions, get close, come on people, give it a shot, give it the old college try. You too may be on the inside where all the hilarity, jocularity happens in a bubble of insularity. Okay, the arities. And that is, I tell you what, there's some funny stuff that goes on there. You really need to take a look at it. It'll brighten your day. Right, and you know what else brightens your day, Murph? What's that? It's our next little section. And we call that? Well, guess what time it is though. First of all, guess what time it is? Guess what time it is? What time is it, Murph? I bet it's time for Police Small Town Blutter. And I forgot to tell you, hey, this is Show About Crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously, not ourself. How do we know that? Because we do Small Town Police Blutter. Sorry, we got it backwards. It's like one of those endings at the end of a pharmaceutical commercial, you know, the previous hit of the mother. Anyway, all right, let's get into this. We're keeping you on your toes, that's all. I might've had some caffeine today. Anyway, hey, Murph, this story comes to us from Lancaster County, Nebraska. All right. You always want good citizens, right? A good citizen out there called in, told dispatchers, hey, somebody is driving a truck on the wrong side of the road. Highway 77 in Lancaster County nearly ran him off the road. So driver, I mean, the caller gives excellent description, says, hey, here's where it happened. Here's where the collision nearly happened. And so obviously they vector deputies in, right? So even though the guy's rattled, he's able to give them, you know, the calls. So the deputy gets out there and the deputy finds the driver and pulls it over. And he's the caller. He's the caller. Deputy goes, do you know why I stopped you? Yeah, because I was on the wrong side of the road. The man responded jockeying the air up to a missed exit. Oh, okay, well, you know, the problem is he had a blood alcohol content, twice the legal limit. Oh, don't you just hate when that happens? Yeah, so he confessed to calling 911 on himself and the deputy realized who he had in custody. Yeah, I did that because I thought somebody was on the wrong side of the fucking road, bro. The deputy goes, yeah, but it turned out to be you. But it turned out it was you. He goes, yep, like a dumb fuck. He says this on body cam day. Hey, you know what, ladies and gentlemen, we have a sectional Patreon called you can't make this shit up. This is the first one from that. Hey, there's a truck almost ran me off the road. Yeah, unfortunately for you, Skippy, they were going the right way. You were going the wrong way. That's wonderful. Hey, Mark, I know at your age, you're not on a dating app, right, but you've heard of those dating apps, right? Match .com, you know, Tinder. Yeah, you know, and what do they always say? You know, like, if you like somebody, you swipe right. I think it is, if you don't like them, you swipe left. Have my money. Something like that, right, so. Obviously you have. Well, no, no, I have, because I read the story. So, what do you think would be an innovative way to find a fugitive? Are you using a dating app? This guy out of England, he's a million dollar fraudster. He apparently swiped flight, you know, instead of right, he swiped flight. This wanted man, Wayne Parker, successfully evaded authorities for nearly a year after committing a million dollars in fraud, but then the farmer from Suffolk, England, signed up for a dating app, right? They were shocked to see, cops, coppers were shocked to see the convicted criminal crop up after Parker created a profile on Match .com. So, what happened was the 35 year old scammer was found guilty a year ago of owing a whopping $970 ,000 to a supplier. He failed to appear in court in February for sentencing and was being hunted by police to no avail until the on the lam lothario, this is them writing that, not me, decided to start looking for love in all the wrong places. So, I mean, if he'd waited, what, seven years, the statute of limitations run out, he could have done it, but no. Since going on the run, Mr. Paca is known to have been using Match's dating website. He's also been hiring cars in a bid and is believed to avoid detection by the police. So, he failed to appear in court. So, he said he would return to Suffolk to face the consequences of his action, but so far has failed to head to, has failed to do so. So, it's only a matter of time before the law catches up. We would strongly urge him to hand himself in. Well, guess what? They didn't have to wait too long. Now, this frisky farmer, he'd previously been prosecuted for posing a serious risk of spreading bovine tuberculosis. He failed to dispose of farmed animal remains appropriately, was found to be moving large quantities of cattle without following the proper process, as well as not keeping adequate records of the cattle. So, he was handed a 12 -week jail sentence and an 18 -month suspension from doing business. That was then, but now he's going to go to prison for a million dollars in fraud, all because he had the urge he got on the dating site. Oh, because he's stupid. He's stupid. Speaking of stupid, Murph, this next one comes to us from Vero Beach, Florida, population 16 ,534. Salute. And that's a beautiful place. Yeah, so Rashad McGriff, he, I'll give it away, he went to jail. He has a lengthy rap sheet, currently on probation, following conviction in March for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. What kind of taunt could an ex -girlfriend send over a text that would cause this felon, this person now charged with battery and burglary, what kind of taunt could send him over the edge? I'm going to guess it was a reference, a negative reference towards his private parts. She taunted him via text about having a little penis. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Investigators say that the 42 -year -old woman was in her bed when McGriff got into the house, which he has no commitments to. He then punched the woman in the face and choked her, which then obstructed her ability to breathe temporarily. She was bleeding from the bridge, did you ever know? She told police that she texted McGriff a photo of somebody else's penis and advised Rashad he had a little one. Oh my God. Oh, oh, I don't even know what to say. Sorry. Well, the judge ordered McGriff to have no contact with the victim because he threatened her as well. So he's been previously, the woman's previously sued McGriff three times for failure to pay child support. So they do have a hearing. So hey, look, domestic violence is not funny, but you know, sending a picture of somebody's junk and then following it up with a really small piece of junk and saying, you got a little one or something like that. Oh no, actually she sent him a picture. She sent a picture of apparently what she liked and said that you've got a much smaller one. Did she call him shorty or stubby? Yeah, we shouldn't make fun of that, I'm sorry. Yeah, well, we'll just see if the evidence stands up in court. Anyway, thank you very much. Hey, well, let's, we're gonna, what we're gonna do is I'm gonna talk about our next guest. We'll do the intro here because then when we get into the interview, we're not gonna do re -intro the intro. But this one, this one's the one I helped arrange because I've known this person for probably 18 years now. No, her and her husband. And for those of you in law enforcement, when I say the name JD Buck Savage, if you've been around, except Murph. Murph had no idea until they started watching the videos. Legendary police trainer, used to train Caliber Press, Street Survival, has a, him and his wife now, we'll talk about, have a company, The Winning Mind, they do a lot of this. Now, Betsy Brantner Smith, Sergeant Betsy Brantner Smith retired after 29 years on the Naperville Police Department, which I used to be up in Naperville for some other stuff in a prior life, actually had a TV series about her, a lot of good stuff. But now she is the spokesperson for the National Police Association, nationalpolice .org. And Murph, I would say we had a good, some of you folks, I'm gonna tell you right now, this is gonna be a controversial topic for some of you. You're not gonna like it because, but we get into some, we, you know, hey, we talk about the facts around what's happening with police right now, what's going on, the narratives, and Betsy pulls no punches. Look, with all of our guests, they have the absolute right to the First Amendment. She gets to say what she wants to say because it's her opinion, it's her voice. But the other thing too is, I'm not gonna give it away, you're gonna find out on the episode, but Betsy has a right to say what she wants to say when you understand what she's been through and what she survived. And she's an effective, I remember times she used to get ahold of me and say, hey, I see you on Fox and CNN and all this stuff all the time. And she'd be jealous. I'm like, I sent her a text, hey, I see you on all these shows all the time, I'm jealous now. I tell you what, once you hear her talk, she's a feisty little lady, you can see why she was selected as a national spokesperson for the National Police Association. And as you'll hear me say at the end of the interview, she was honestly a breath of fresh air, standing up in discussion, hot issues that involve the police culture, but she's just not giving an opinion. She's backing it up with facts and statistics, which is, anybody can have an opinion, just like buttholes, we've all got them, but when you back them up with facts, there's a good position. So this was honestly a great interview with Betsy. It was a pleasure to meet you. I will continue to watch JD Buck Savage videos here. They're funny. If you haven't seen them, just go on YouTube and put in JD Buck Savage and you'll see them. Saw drunk? If you want to know where saw drunk arrested same originated as JD Buck Savage. You just know hanging out with these two, you're gonna come out with tears streaming down your cheeks cause they're gonna keep you laughing. Oh man, Dave and I had a good time. Well, Murph, we can't get to it until I ask you the question that is on everybody's mind, mind, mad, mind, on our mad mind. Our mad mind, are you ready to play the biggest, baddest, most dangerous game of all? The unadulterated, unfettered, unrestricted game of crimes. Here we are. Yes, we are ready. So get in, sit down, shut up and hold on. We got Ms. Betsy coming on. You're gonna love this lady.

Not only that, Murph, let me show you. Nobody else can see this. Look what else I got.
A highlight from 112: Part 1: More Mexican Mafia with Ramon Mundo Mendoza
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playwrights, dududettes, everybody in between, welcome to episode 112, 112 of the latest attempt to silence Murph and Morgan. As I said before, we will not go quietly into the night. We are back again. And Murph, this is a historic one. Put this on your calendars. It's historic because this is the first time we've had a two -timer, first time we've brought somebody back. And think about that, 112 episodes, there's a lot of people out there. And one of the reasons we're bringing this guy back is because of a lot of the comments we got, a lot of the interest that was shown and wanting to hear more about the story. So we decided to do that. So we decided to bring Ramon Mundo Mendoza from, he was a Mexican Mafia, you know, from Mexican Mafia Hitman, you know, from Alter Boy to Mexican Mafia Hitman was the title of his book. And, you know, this is our first, like I said, we decided to bring him back actually fairly quickly after we did the interview, after we ran into him at the Southern California gang conference. It was. So his first episode was 103, which was mid -June. And the comments we got, I mean, we got a ton of comments from listeners asking, hey, this was fantastic. It's great to take an inside view of the bad guys, especially a very violent organization like the Mexican Mafia. And you guys are asking us to bring him back on for more information. And Mundo was very gracious about it. He worked us into his schedule. I'm not going to tell you anything about where he was. He didn't tell us and we don't ask things like that because he still fears for his life. But it did look like he was in a motel room doing this. So he was I don't know if he's in hiding or what he was doing, but, you know, he's having to live incognito, which I can't imagine is a lot of fun, but certainly was gracious enough to come back on and tell us more stories. And you know what? They're just as scary as it's the first ones. And some of the things he tells us on this one were a little surprising about how the cops were handling him and letting him run. It's almost you know, you wonder how and the other reason you're seeing two folks, we're not going to do small town police blotter. We made a decision. Look, when we talk about stuff like this, like when we did Natasha Hertzig, you know, or some other folks, there's nothing funny about this stuff. So we're not we're not we don't want to make light of it. So we are not going to do small town police blotter for this one because this is some serious stuff. But we get into talking about two additional murders he did while he was working with law enforcement, how he had to cut a deal for that to testify against some other people, went back, did his time, you know, and you know, and we talk about a lot of the issues about, you know, hey, what can we do to intervene in this stuff? Where is that point to where we can intervene with kids, keep them out of this gang life? We talk about a lot of stuff going on. And just to be just to be blunt, it's not like we're the type of guys that are going to say, hey, we'll fly out. Let's meet for dinner. Mundo, let's go hang around and pal around. There's a professional respect simply because of what he used to do and what we used to do. We understand why he's doing what he's doing now.

A highlight from 110: Part 1: Ryan Steck is a Spy - The Real Book Spy
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playwrights, dududettes, everybody in between, welcome back to episode 110. The 110th ongoing attempt to remove us from podcast land has failed. I can say, I'm not impressed with us, but I'm impressed we're still on the air, I have to say that. We're like cockroaches, Murph, we can survive a nuclear blast, we're still here. Turn the light on, we'll scurry away, but we're coming back. We're coming back, all right. Speaking of coming back, hey guys, glad that you came back to listen to us. Hey, you know something I keep forgetting to say, but just, you know, no matter what podcast platform you're on, hit that subscribe button so that it automatically downloads into your feed so you can hear us, hear the stories that are going to come out of this. But, you know, hey, just hit that subscribe button where you are, it increases our numbers so that Murph can afford a yacht. He needs a yacht. He's got a big lake out back. He's got alligator shoes now. Now he needs a yacht. I don't know, man. I'm reading the book of one of our future guests here. I won't let the cat out of the bag yet. But after reading what happens on some of those boats, I don't think I want to go out in the ocean anymore. Speaking of the upcoming guest, we won't give it away, but we will say that it was another series was made out of this person, this author's books. A popular series too. Very popular series. One of the longest running series on one of the networks. And so this will be fun. But anyway, let's get rid of, but we started off with the housekeeping. Hit the subscribe, but also hit those five stars, Apple, Spotify, wherever you're listening. Just remember Stitcher is no longer. If you're on Stitcher, head to another platform. Also head on over to our website, gameofcrimespodcast .com. That's where you will find the books for our guests we have coming up, for our guests coming up in a while. And we just got a note to one of our buddies, Pete Friselli. We'll talk about this later, but his paperback will be out in March. So we will obviously give you guys an idea about that. We'll talk about that because he's got a book coming out called The Deadly Path. It's about Operation Fast and Furious. And guess who got to write the forward for that book? Well, somebody who knows how to write would probably be Connie. You probably dictated to her. Well, fortunately we had Grammarly. There you go. That's one of the bennies of having a great sponsor like Grammarly. Grammarly, Murph wrote it and Grammarly made it sound good. There you go. Thank you Grammarly. Also follow us on that thing. They call the social media at Game of Crimes on Twitter, Game of Crimes podcast on Facebook and the Instagram. Also, go over Game of Crimes fans. Just type that in.

Get close, join the hilarity, the jocularity and it's insularity because we're a private group. You got to answer a couple of questions. So things get wild and we actually have had a couple of good stories came out. She just posted one. She was pissed. I don't know if you saw that Murph, but a Seminole County detective has been arrested for notifying targets child of solicitation stings. Yeah, and these were people who were soliciting. No children were involved. No children were harmed in the actual making of the arrest, but he was notifying them about through encrypted apps or other stuff, notifying the targets. Hey, this is a setup. Don't show up. You know what? This coming Tuesday, next week, I'm going to the board meeting for the Orlando Police Foundation, which is not only Orlando PD, but it's also Osceola County, Orange County and Seminole County. So the sheriffs will be there and they just invited me to speak at their fall gala this year, the big fundraiser. So I'm going to have to ask him about that. You know what? There's probably some good stories up there that we can bring here on Game of Crimes. Absolutely, absolutely. And that will factor into an announcement we may have for you later. We have a call coming up on Monday as this podcast is being released with our agents at UTA. Something may be in the works. Yeah, baby. We'll see. Speaking of being in the works, you need to work on heading on over to Patreon. Patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. That's where you need to be. We've had some good contentious stuff out there.

And by the way, one of them will be a world premiere of a world famous name that was just in a huge movie. Huge, huge. It's huge. That has never been on a podcast before. Never been on a podcast. We got him first. We got him first. Took the US Marshals. You talk about dog and determination. Yeah. And a, and a selfie of a finger from John Bernthal to make this happen. Thank you, John. And John knows who we're talking about. Yeah. You know who we are. All right. So, but head on over there, guys. We've got a lot of good stuff coming out. So that is patreon .com slash Game of Crimes. But now, quick disclaimer. This is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously. But what Murph? If you haven't figured it out yet, we never take ourselves serious. Except maybe on Patreon. We get a little, we get on our soap boxes occasionally there. Yeah, we do. And there's some comments about that. So I'll have to tell you about it later. Oh, but hey, but in the meantime, you know what time it is, right? Guess what time it is? Let me ask you, guess what time it is? What, guess what time it is? I bet it's time for small town police blood. Bonanza. All right. Hey, Murph, have you ever been in a sticky situation in an investigation? Oh, yeah, but you weren't in this sticky situation. You mean literally or figuratively? Police in Pasadena, Texas are on the lookout. A 12 -year -old girl told KHOU -TV that she was shopping at a drugstore last week when she felt a wad of something sizzling in her ponytail. It turned out to be glue. So they have a sticky, you know, have a sticky investigation going on. The sticky bandits have attacked. Not only that, she had to cut off some of her hair. Managers say another customer had glued sprayed onto her earlier at the same drugstore and they're investigating a similar incident at a nearby grocery store. Why the hell would you go around spraying glue in people's hair? You're the sticky bandit. That means, remember the wet bandits from Home Alone? These guys are the sticky bandits. Oh, that's just so nasty to even be called that. Well, unlike that lady who thought Gorilla Glue was like a way to keep her hair. Remember that one? She put Gorilla Glue. It will keep your hair. It will, but folks, oh my God. But this was funny, Steve. I got these out of the Bristol Herald Courier out of Bristol, Tennessee. I thought, let me go to kind of a smaller area, you know, get some stuff. So that was one story, Steve. Here's another story. This comes out of Iowa City, Iowa. So, you know, people rob banks for the strangest things, right? A 19 year old North Liberty man used cash stolen at a bank robbery to play for a bond. He had on an outstanding warrant. The only thing that will make it better is if it had the explosive dye. Oh my God, he gave it to the police department. He was charged. Police charged Charles Curry with first degree bank robbery after the robbery of the American Bank and Trust. Curry cased the joint out by talking with the teller and leaving a second man armed with a handgun, then robbed the bank. Police say Curry used bank money to pay a bond for an outstanding theft charge at the Johnson County Jail, then went shopping at a Walmart and Gordon's department store. All I can say is, Curry, you're an idiot. He was taken to jail. There's a, there's an understatement. But hey, I got, I got to end up with this one. You ever had, remember all these things where people go hold my beer? Oh, yeah. Yep. This one comes from Bergetstown, Pennsylvania, population 1 ,425. Salute. The population makes a difference because we're going to get into the structural integrity of the holding cell. That Bonner Timothy was placed in. He was, he was arrested, taken to this holding cell, had his handcuffs removed. They shut the door, went off. That's when he knocked the cell door off its hinges and ran away. Now, what did he do? He stopped at a house, borrowed shoes, and then he went to a bar where he told a customer that, yeah, I just broke out of jail. Can I have a beer? The guy hold the beer, but before he could drink it, he goes, oh, hold my beer. Here's the police. The police came in and arrested him. Dang. How did he knock the door off the hinges? I'm telling you, some of these old places, it's like, it's more like having a fence, you know, you know, fences keep, you know, make good neighbors, you know, blocks keep honest people on us. But, you know, it's just, it was more the, you know, just like a Captain Jack Sparrow in Paris in the Caribbean. It's all about leverage. That's the day you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow. Yeah, but he used leverage to pry that door off its hinges. Oh, my God. Okay. That's, there's a good, hey, hold my beer. I'm going to jail. Again. Again. Well, hey, speaking of fun stuff, I don't, I'm trying to figure out a good segue into this. This one, I get the intro because this guy I know, this guy actually has something in common with one of our other guests. Yes. Sherry Foster. And Sherry, if you're listening, tick tock, tick tock, I will get my book into him before you do, and I will be declared the winner. So this young man, and I say young man, he's got six kids. Oh, my God. He's been busy with everything. I don't know when he's had time to have six kids as busy as he is writing and editing books. But Ryan's - I wonder if there's a milk man in his neighborhood. Sorry, Ryan. Sorry, DNA tests are in your future, pal. So no, no, no, his wife's great. We don't want to make any insinuate, any insinuate, almost insinuations like that. Anyway, but let's get back to the case in chief. So, but, you know, many of you may not know who Ryan Steck is. You may have heard of big names like Jack Carr, Brad Thor, people writing thrillers. Well, not only is he the real book spy, if you go to therealbookspy .com, that is him. Ryan Steck, besides being my development editor and Sherry's development editor, guess who, you know, who asked him for recommendations and who's asked him to review their books? Jake Tapper, Bret Baier. He has got a list of celebrities and people, as long as my arm, of people that he's worked with, people that he's helped, people that are coming to him to say, hey, take a look at my book. And you got, so you're about to say something there, Murph. Hey, I've got, so I've got him pulled up on my laptop here as you're talking and he is, he's on his blog or whatever it is, YouTube. I'm not sure what you call it here. Twitch, yeah. Guess who he's talking to? Brad Thor, the author. Brad Thor, the author. How about that? He gets him on Twitch. Actually, I was supposed to be on that Twitch session, but yeah, Ryan is like, he's one of those unique people that has figured out how this thing works. Now you're going to ask, why do we have this author on? Well, for two reasons. Number one, his new book, Lethal Range is coming out. His initial book, his debut book was called Fields of Fire, a Matthew Redd thriller. So Matthew Redd is a Marine Raider. Now you hear a lot about Navy Seals, Delta Rangers, but nobody's ever had a book with a Marine Raider in it, you know? What do you call him, Marsoc? Marsoc, yeah, Marine Special Operations Command, I believe, Marsoc, yeah. And so he's got, so he had a, not only did he have a debut book, he's been helping people. Finally, all these guys are saying, write your own damn book, dude. So he did. So he got a contract for two books and a novella, which we'll talk about the novella. But his new book is, as we drop this episode, as you're listening to this today, his new book, Lethal Range comes out. And if I was just reading, just the quick thing from Lethal Range, let me just read you the intro. This is what Lethal Range is. On an island off the coast of Spain, Matthew Redd and his FBI fly team surveil a luxury villa in hopes of catching a high value fugitive. But when Redd leads an unauthorized raid on the villa, he discovers they've been set up and he is sent home to face the consequences of defying orders. Now, meanwhile, Redd's family, Emily, is on a remote stretch of Montana road driving their sick baby to the doctor when she finds her SUV surrounded by a biker gang. Intent on harassing her as they pound her fenders and infant sun screams, Emily fights to keep the FQB on the road. And then suddenly the bikers back off, leaving her safe but shaken. But when Redd returns home, Murph, he's suspended from his team and certain that he's to blame for Emily's harassment after his run -in with the local biker gang. So what does he do? He does what any guy does. He goes to war.

"Murph. We're going downhill quickly here. Well, speaking of going downhill quickly, you saw what I tagged you with, you know, press one for hillbilly. I loved it. That was fantastic. Did you, by the way? No, I stole it. As you do with most memes on there. But the other one too, I can't remember who posted it, but somebody got a picture, the front plate of a car actually said the plate said sit down strap in, hold on and shut up. You know, we got to come up with some merch for that too. Hats, mugs, something, shirts, I don't know. We just got to find the time to do it. I'll tell you more about that later. But guys, remember, though, this show, we have fun, but it is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We do take the stories very seriously, but and if you're the first time listener, as you can already tell, we never take ourselves serious. We're going to have some good fun. Yes, we are. And one way we have good fun is we report from around the world literally around the world around the globe about things happening in your neck of the Woods. So that means, you know what time it is, Murph, right? What time is it?.

"Before I would do that. You would have had to have some other information like they pulled a gun on somebody again. They'd have to commit a felony, but a simple misdemeanor. No, probably not, right? Do you have to announce that you're releasing the dog? If time and safety permit. So like, for example, if I knew you had a gun or if you shot at me, I'm not required to, right? That'd be foolish. Stop, don't shoot at me again. I'm going to send my dog. No. But if otherwise, I'm going to give announcements. And in this case, I told you I stopped around to send the dog. He just chose not to stop. Well, lesson learned how to valuable life lesson in our other life lesson we always tell kids, don't we Murph, don't do math. That's her other life. But don't do math. How many people when you give when they start to think about getting froggy with you? And then they see the dog and all those teeth. And then you say, I'm going to release the dog. How often do you get compliance versus people being noncompliant? I would say a good majority. You know, you got your one or two percenters that are going to run anyway because that's what they do. They're a career criminals. But it's like a taser almost, I would say. Crooks know that people know that if you can shoot them or not, right? My service weapon. They know, right? If they don't attempt to hurt or kill somebody or me, there's a very small chance that I'm going to shoot them, right? They know that. I can point my gun at you, but I'm bound by law, not to shoot you. You follow. But the use of a taser or the use of a canine, which is a less lethal use of force, they know I'll send my dog, they know I'll tase your ass..

"Now, before we get into the good stuff, we got to tell you about the bad stuff. And the bad stuff is our disclaimer. This is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We do take the story seriously, but we never take ourselves seriously. That's what makes the show. So much fun. That's why we keep coming back every week. And we keep coming back because once again, it's that time and what time is it, Murph no, it's not the blue plate special time. It's time.

"But as always, we've got a quick disclaimer. This is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We do take the story seriously, but we never never take ourselves serious. If we ever do call us down on it. That's right. Call us out on it. So, hey, but before we get into the rest of this until you, what does we got going on? Guess what time it is Murph? What time is it?.

"Crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We do take the story seriously, but we never take ourselves seriously. So that's why we want you here to be having some fun with us. That's right. And speaking of fun, guess what time it is, Murph? How are we going to start off the year? We're going to start it off with what? Our small smile. Let's kick this year off right. And let's talk about some of the fun stories that are still out there waiting for us to surface them for you and entertain you. So Murph, did you know that early morning on April 6th, a hay fork, woman? I don't even know what the population of hay fork is because I'm not sure what state it is. Requests.
"murph" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"You know, I did read an article and it made me sick. That is what the mother of the suspect that convicted child rapist and actually this is this comes from the mother folks. This is not from us. This is from the mother. And there's another interesting thing she says in this because she says the son tells her he depicted the rape as an accident, telling his mother, he didn't mean to insert himself into her anus and was surprised when it caused her pain. He said he was intending for vaginal and ended up for ten seconds as anal. So what did the mom say? If I was in a position where I was about to be raped, I would be kicking, screaming, everything, you're 15, you can reasonably defend yourself. You're not just going to sit there and take it. And so because there wasn't the presence of a fight, he felt it was okay to keep going. Apparently, no doesn't mean no. Apparently it's okay. Now, we talked about the issue and don't get into it Murph because you caused us to shit show last time. You just take a breath, let me read this and don't go off, don't go off the rails here. Yeah, okay. I can promise you, don't worry. The mother's defense of the boy who she maintains is not transgender or gender fluid as he was previously identified in the press is instructive, not just as closing salvo to a culture war, but also as a masterclass in ripe apology. So this proves my point and the question I asked just from an investigative standpoint, one of the things investigators have to look at is does he truly does he truly in sincerely identify as transgender or as gender fluid or was it simply a ruse to make teachers and other people uncomfortable about asking them about that so he could have this meeting in the bathroom and by the mother's own words, she says, and I'm going to repeat this..

The will many subs. That'll be on display outside the museum so that people can get a sense of what michael's team did when you look at this too and you'd think that you have four to six navy seals in the back on oxygen underwater in blackness with justin navigate and the driver of front Which is what they used for missions. Because they'd be attack no south they'd be least from the south they go to a three hours. Come in and complete damage. It's it's amazing what these men do. Just it's it's i shake my head. Every time we hear. Michael tell me about what they did was on with points less than obviously afghanistan He enjoyed the work a lot. So i you know i will. I rue the day that we lost him happy that he did what he wanted to do. And that's that was the most you know.

"Would american outdoor news. Today we would have very special guys. Then you'll murphy. Before michael murphy survive operation very readily. Speak up back here. Yes my son was navy lieutenant. Michael murphy will receive the medal of honor from president bush in two thousand and seven for actions in afghanistan in two thousand and five which were recreated in the movie survivor. Marcus latrell was the only survivor. Michael's team and When now building a navy seal museum Which is going to tell the history legacy and sacrificing of on abc's and west sable on county falkland It carries michael's name so it's called them. Lieutenant michael p murphy navy seal museum and seek it at training facility because it's perfect. Bill invest not about michael. It is actually about navy seals from warwick to maneuver known is underway demolition teams through the war on terror changed and evolved over over time. Oh for sure. And of course today Big daddy's Celebrity golf outing It's overcast with a little bit of rain. But i tell big daddy. This is A well so they can play on anywhere anytime exactly now getting off the topic which what are for the people who served and sacrificed. Everything has gone on for the past ten years. How does that affect you partial. How president binding down after that question a lot. I don't believe that michael's were any of the other. Sacrifices were in vain cape. They kept this country twenty years. Eventually we knew we had to get at afghanistan. I if i have any major complaint. Is that. I consider a by to have fumbled the ball. There are ways to get out. There are ways to get out you. Don't pull the military out and then say oh. Let's get the civilian noli. Proper ways only american civilians out than equipment out. Then you get us troops out. So if i have a criticism would be that He basically fumbled this whole operation. I absolutely believe that. His military leaders Made these decision probably should resign because absolute wound up. Personally it is. I think a lot of the american public feels the same way. Oh joy way as why. The president's poll numbers going down Just you know just shake your head and wonder why they make decisions that they made Rather than having woodley rural being a military guy myself in vietnam it's just withdrawals were always most complicated and require a lot of planning This seem so acid. That was okay and to send an auditory day. We're going to leave by. This date seems to me. You know like i wanna be. I wanna be out by august thirty first of that. I could say on nine eleven. Hey we're no longer in afghanistan. So i think those are political decisions as opposed to military decisions agreed. Every that's that's basically. That's that's the problem. I see there and that's why we're in shape. We're in right now. Getting back on topic What's your greatest memory. Oh god there are so many but michael you know i try to explain to people that michael was one leader back. When he was young. I saw and all his actions of and i kind of like this. I think most of michael sprints knew that michael would do the right thing at the right time for the right reasons. And so as i want him growing up and i'm talking about when he seven eight nine ten. It would be his friends coming. My i going to do today. And my said oh. We'll do this. And i think his friends recognized the same Same attributes michael off. So when i say was born leader he was a born leader. I just he was the leader of his crew. Whether it was as a lifeguard at lake ronkonkoma or even as a silky. No michael was all about eve. Not about michael which is why when we heard that there was a survivor. Minimum michael's team went missing. poll week. You heard there was a survivor His mother maureen than i knew of what we looked at each other and said we knew wasn't going to be michael because michael would have sacrificed himself whereas men before he would allow himself to be the sole survivor. So but we're happy that Mocks appel survived. Because without marcus we would have never known michael story And so marcus relate exactly what these amended during battle including michael When you received the medal of honor reward which was four. What marcus said michael. Step down into an avalanche bullets in order to make coal for assistance I don't know many people that would be willing to do that. Knowing that the propaganda die so which say probably ninety nine percent. Chalk would not chuck. When i think of michael. I always think of this pyramid that just get smaller and smaller because you go from becoming a leader to becoming a navy seal becoming a navy seal officer becoming operational because there aren't that many operational teams to go up to being in battle. And then the medal of honor realize they're only thirty five hundred metres. They have been awarded since the civil war. While michael was the first draft ghanistan i sale to receive the medal of honor since nineteen seventy three the vietnam war so michael with a lot of firsts in a lot of ways honest to god american year yep yep absolutely and you i think mockus said it. Best in his book won't survive o'grady said if they could build a mind him into michael and we'd have to be hired in the empire state because he just was a leader. People follow and courageous. He just courage matched by anybody. Just incredibly young man i really incredibly unmanned i was honored to have him at my son. His actions reflected exactly what i would have expected michael to do when faced with what he had to face and so He was as i said a team play fit. Perfect in seal team. Because it's all about team it's about individuals And so he was a team player. Which is why. I believe that we don't have anything like a bronze to michael. Because michael would freaked out but really. There's never about him if you ever see any pictures. He's always standing in the background. It was always about his team. His teammates So when we dealt with issues that came up for example. The us has michael murphy. There's a navy ship a d. j. one twelve always destroy but when the family got together in the navy they were going to name it. The story of the michael who was important to us that michael's team was involved. So we had wall of nineteen men have been named scrapping to kill fake that was put in shifts. If you go through the ship you will see biography of each and every one of the Nineteen thousand army Who was lost in red wings and the too rigid inflatable boats on the on the ship on name beats.

This is it's subjective. This isn't a math question is the science question? What is math is the 10 Super Bowls. I can't touch that. Can't even get close to that. That's that's unbelievable. Like Jack Nicklaus. He's That's it. He's number one dropping. He's on tarmacs capacitor. You're talking about my homes. Are you saying like skill? Wise, skill wise, 25 years old. He's a better quarterback and steal wise. I'm talking about, like skill. Yeah, but then then if we're talking skill, I mean, we can. Peyton Manning was probably skill wise, a better quarterback Tom Brady was head. They had a lot of the time. I was never a huge Peyton guy. That doesn't mean it. But that doesn't make him not skill. Wise bands all subjective skill wise help Brady and for the most here, sort of similar Skill wise, great. They're both super discipline. Super smart guys who would just make the right Reed and that's you Get credit for that. I'm not diminishing that. Here's the thing with grand think all the things you're saying work, But then there's the one thing. That's the most obvious to me, which separates Brady, which is his ability to play huge in the biggest games like that, except yesterday. You mean right? Well, no, you're right the second half of the atrocious but without his first half, they don't win that game. Scotty Miller and his first drive was unbelievable. And touchdown. Brilliant. His first half was brilliant. He was making great passes all over the 60 minute ballgame, you know? No, I know, But I'm saying like if he doesn't put that brilliance together for the first two quarters, they don't win that Rogers had a better line and lost again. See football might be the worst argument. Worst court were sport to say this in and I know the quarterback touches the ball on every play, but It is truly like a quarterback. It's and cups You said something earlier. This show. It's a bold statement. But I disagree with those cracking my eggs. When you said it, you said there's no sport in any. There's no position in any sport in which determines more the fate of the outcome than the quarterback. And I would say a starting pitcher in baseball has much more influence on the game than the court. The difference, so is usually if a starter comes out. He's like he's bad in the first gives up five runs, You can yank him and you can come back and win that game. Usually a quarterback is yours. Not gonna yank Rogers out of the inner city champions. You see, my argument is, I think the Tampa Bay's defense was phenomenal yesterday and won the game form and so that you know to me that listen. You're right. It's a fool's errand to try to diminish a guy going to his 10th supervillain. I don't and I also I I say this from the bottom of my heart. I do not hate Tom Brady at all. I do not. In fact, I was kind of really excited to get him on our show when we had him a couple I've enjoyed sort of the fact that he's from the Bay Area. I love the fact that he's a candlestick kid. I've met his father, A seems like a great guy. And I like there are people out there that hate Brady. I am not one of those people. I really like him. I get a kick out of him. I laughed at that social media post he put up I thought that was hilarious. I think he's very the analogies. I'll just keep coming. He's very much like Jack Nicklaus. Nicolas is the all time all time champion, but he didn't move people or is he the greatest of all time versus like a tiger and a hogan? So anyway, That's me, buddy. That's it, okay. That's It's only part of the country still only part of the country than even still debating it. Well, and by the way, probably the only and nobody mentioned the snake. Yeah, totally. Totally. Totally. What about Gannon's M V? P something you never saw Rich Gannon and over 12 slithering around out there. Fresh out of the holding cell to the 80 of hands, Baby Sea of hands. Hold me, You know, I mean, Vinatieri put it had some of the greatest exit. No, that's a big deal. You can't.
