Tuebor – I Will Defend. An anatomy of a Michigan State Police Trooper. Principia Media, 2016

Tuebor is the story of an honest, hard-working yet naïve young man who chose to leave the safety of civilian life for a career of a dedicated police officer. Whether an aspiring police officer, a current police officer or someone interested in understanding what serving the public is about, these true stories capture the human side of police. Readers will learn about the daily lives of officer travel as they encounter humanity in its various forms. With recent deadly race-related encounters in the news, the public’ perception of the police officers who safeguard them have changed. Hopefully Tuebor will provide a background of understanding to assist in improving the relationship between the public and police.

The book is dedicated to the Michigan State Police and its’ employees on the agencies’ 100th Anniversary (April 19, 1917 – April 19, 2017).

The author is working on a second book about his experiences as a sole practitioner working in many areas of civil law, including: divorces, evictions, plaintiff-products liability, plaintiff-premises liability, plaintiff-automobile negligence, and a few other areas involving many large corporations as well as individual defendants.

I found this book to be very interesting and gives great insight into the daily routines of a state trooper. It shows so much dedication to the job and the community and that no matter when or where they are they are always on the job. I would recommend this book to everyone because once I started reading it I didn’t want to put in down and when I did I couldn’t wait to pick it up again it kept me very intrigued. Its a MUST READ. 2-24-2018

I just finished reading your book, Tuebor – I Will Defend. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It intertwined the State of Michigan and the life of a state patrol person. Nicely done! Recommend for anyone interested in the life of a policeman!

My attitude is a little different than most in the MSP, simply because “I never wanted to become a COP” (long story), but
This may be the only book that I’ve read over 3 times, except for the bible, and perhaps the MSP “Official Orders” that I often used to annoy useless bureaucrats. Suggest that any applicant, Trooper, or Retiree read it in detail.  Richard Humbarger, MSP Retired. 5-8-2019.
