Barry Cooper was once considered one of America’s top drug agents who worked joint operations with the ATF, DEA, FBI, U.S. Military and Border Patrol. He received specialized training in narcotics interdiction methods such as undercover operations, reversal operations, search warrants, K-9’s and highway interdiction. In 2006, Barry was the first to blow the whistle on drug dog false alerts. Barry is currently a law lecturer, criminal defense expert witness and filmmaker who operates the popular website, NeverGetBusted.com. Seven years ago, as a form of penance, he used his experience as a former drug agent to produce a series of instructional videos titled, NeverGetBusted.com, that teaches citizens how to avoid being arrested for marijuana crimes. Flanking NeverGetBusted.com, he produced an Internet reality show called, KopBusters, where he brought attention to a mother of two illegally incarcerated after police planted drugs in her car. The sting was designed to embarrass the police and trick them into raiding a trap house rigged with hidden cameras and a fake marijuana grow room. Although he and his family suffered severe government retaliation for the operation, the sting was a success because Yolanda Madden was released from federal prison and remains free today. At the time, Barry’s critics viewed his style of activism as a personal attack against god, children and the police. Now, most see NeverGetBusted.com and KopBusters as a clever humanitarian operation designed to protect citizens from a country who now holds the all time world record for the number of citizens it incarcerates.
