During his first few days as a rookie New Jersey State Trooper, Justin Hopson witnessed an unlawful arrest and false report made by his training officer. When he refused to testify in support the illegal arrest, his life veered into a dangerous journey of hazing and harassment. He uncovered evidence of a secret society within the State Police known as the "Lords of Discipline," whose mission it was to keep fellow troopers in line. The Lords bullied and harassed colleagues for decades. Trooper Hopson blew the whistle on the Lords of Discipline, which sparked the largest internal investigation in State Police history.

This book is a story of fear, courage, and integrity, showing how Justin Hopson persisted with his mission of exposing police corruption. Through many unexpected twists of fate, Hopson tells his story with a strong message that one committed individual can make a successful stand against social forces of fear and intimidation.

ABC News, The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Star-Ledger, and other media outlets have interviewed Mr. Hopson about police corruption.
