BAD VOLF - JOHN MARK DOUGAN & RON CHEPESIUK

This true story is about John Mark Dougan, a Marine Corps veteran and former police officer who had enough of the violence and crime plaguing the Criminal Justice system. He blew the whistle and was retaliated against by the police administration. Dougan started setting up whistleblower websites all around the country for good cops to spill their secrets without fear or retribution. The justice system launched illegal investigation after investigation into every aspect of John's life, and John set up a clever operation to trick them into admitting they were illegally accessing his email and social media accounts. When the FBI ignored John's demands for an investigation, he became BadVolf, starting a digital war with the very law enforcement agencies who were retaliating against him.John tricked everyone, including the media, into believing he was a Russian hacker before engaging in a strategic, one-man campaign of disinformation, fake news, hacking, social engineering and doxing. John did all the activities that people love to blame on Russia, except he did it as an American citizen, on American soil; retribution and deception the only way to fight back against criminals in charge of local, state and federal American law enforcement agencies.After an eight-year-long battle, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Dougan’s home, ordering surveillance teams to follow and attempt to capture him at any cost. Dougan however, had other plans; he donned a disguise and slipped away into exile using the skills acquired in the Marine Corps, police agencies and from working with technology.This is the story of how BadVolf was created, and the resulting two-week long escape from these badge-toting criminals is a riveting story that led John to obtain political asylum in Russia.
