Episode No. 15 Bad Cop on the Run
Date: March 19, 2008
Notes: An interview with Robert Davis,
the author of Cop Out.
Robert Davis is a former police officer with the New Orleans Police Department. At the age of 22 he joined the New Orleans Police Department; after two years on the job he was arrested for police related corruption and facing 30 years in prison. Rather than face the charges he fled, becoming a fugitive for over 20 years.
Robert Davis’ book, Cop Out, “is a true account of how a former
police officer survived as a fugitive while evading authorities and eventually surrendered to
God. This narrative approach of survival and skill encompasses a diversity of stories and experiences, including life in wooded
terrain and survival as a fugitive for over twenty years. This account serves as a means for the readers to envision challenges
as a true survivor leading to surrender regardless of the outcome. Reflections are provided to aid readers' understanding
of this lengthy journey from periods of atheism to acceptance of God.”
