Asserting YOUR Rights to the Cops

Posted by The_Chef On 12:35 AM 3 comments

FlexYourRights.org has put up their "10 Rules For Dealing With Police Encounters" on youtube.

This is split up into 4 sections. I'm sure that most liberty activists know these rules and know your rights, but it never hurts to brush up, just in case you have to use them. I have refused to consent to a search. The officer didn't like it, but I was allowed to leave. So review them! With thousands of laws, legal codes etc. you never know what might be illegal these days. So know your rights, be respectful (difficult to do, but entirely necessary) and calmly assert your rights.

Part 2:

Part 3:

Part 4:

Remember the cops are NOT your friend. It doesn't matter how well intentioned they may be. They are not on your side.

Stay safe and stay smart.

    Too many people are too willing to roll over for "the law". It's reinforced by shows like COPS over and over again. Know your rights, and stand for them. The cops don't like it, and they'll try to hassle and coerce you into "cooperating". Don't... Great post.
