ACLU's Video about What (Not) to Do When the Cops Show Up
« on: December 20, 2011, 09:33:10 PM »
Hey all,

This is a pretty interesting video put out by the American Civil Liberties Union. It gives some sound advice about how to react to a police stop while driving, when the police come to your doorstep, and when they simply decide you look fascinating enough to question. It's good for all of us to know our rights. It's a bit long, but well worth a watch.

Kudos to Greencavefloat at the Corroboree for originally posting this.

To sum up...
Never incriminate yourself.
Be courteous, but remember some important phrases.

I DO NOT CONSENT TO A SEARCH.
Thank you officer. AM I FREE TO GO?
I know you're just doing your job, but WITHOUT A WARRANT, I CANNOT LET YOU INSIDE.
