This is the memoir of Sheriff Art Labrousse, the third longest seated Sheriff in the Wasco, Oregon County history. The book is about his first year in office in 1980. The author started his career as a reserve officer in 1970 at The Dalles City Police Department. He then joined the force and in 1980 ran for Sherriff.

Wasco County found that thousands of members of the Rajneesh cult were flooding into small communities. They completely took over the small town of Antelope and renamed it Rajneesh. The organization bought a large ranch and proceeded to make it into a commune. Labrousse tells about the religious extremists demanding special treatment and exceptions from inconvenient laws. The Rajneesh poisoned county officials who opposed them. Then they poisoned the salad bars in the area and killed or sickened up to seven hundred people. This was the first and largest biological terrorist attack in the United States. The cult ran the largest illegal wiretapping operation ever uncovered. The cult operated a large immigration fraud scheme as well as other illegal activities such as local voter fraud. The Sheriff tells how he dealt with the bullying and terrorism in his county the first year he was in office. The author spends time explaining the lies behind exploitation of religious freedom.

The book was four and a half hours long. Steve Labrousse did an adequate job narrating the book. I did have a problem with the last half of the book with sentences being repeated and blank spots and then prior sentence repetition. I think they needed a sound editor. The audio production was not very professional, but I was interested in the topic and it was not so bad that I could not tolerate it.

Worst production ever

Appears to be unedited.
Undeleted bad takes. Headphone mix unlistenable. Fascinating story that falls flat.
