Jack Owens attended law school although he never wanted to be a lawyer. He chose a profession based on rules, regulations, and bureaucracy, but he wasn't much of a rules guy. For 30 years, Jack Owens was an FBI agent, catching bad guys, working Cold War counterintelligence, and earning a spot on the S.W.A.T. team, often while bending the rules a bit. He chronicled his career in a memoir: "Don't Shoot, We're Republicans."
