Campbell Live speaks to former cop turned criminal

  • 19/02/2008

Patrick O’Brien is the straight young man, who became a cop, an undercover cop and then a criminal.

To survive under cover, you have to be utterly convincing. And to be convincing you have got to join in for weeks, months and even years – day after day, doing whatever the people you are with are doing and living a lie.

Eventually you bust the people you are with. They go to jail and you go back to your normal life.

But Patrick O’Brien could not go back, in part, he had become the criminal he busted.

Campbell Live spoke to the cop who has been on the run for 30 years.
