Presented by Judge William “Billy” Murphy, Jr. a youtube series is showing everyday citizens how to properly and politely assert their rights. The videos are clips from 10 Rules for Dealing with Police and cover everything from how to refuse a search to the correct way to handle police misconduct. Watching and sharing this information could help you walk away from unwanted police encounters.
“Never tell the officer you know your rights, show the officer you know your rights by asserting them calmly.”
The videos are from the Know-Your-Rights DVD, 10 Rules For Dealing With The Police and are a great collection of works for all citizens. Flex Your Rights; the organization behind the videos, also has a Busted: A Citizen’s Guide to Surviving Police Encounters DVD.
“Legally accurate, realistic and entertaining. This film will prepare you for how policing is done in America” –Norm Stamper, Former Seattle Police Chief
Greenies, I can’t stress how important it is for you to become aware and “Flex Your Rights.” Share these videos with friends and family. Maybe purchase the DVD for a toking graduate you may know
Shout out to Greenie Second Class Citizen (SCC) for dropping word of the series to me. SCC had this to say:
…it HAS saved my butt on about 4 separate occasions. One of which was VERY serious. We’re talking 3-5 years in prison serious. And this series helped me avoid that. I figured it never hurts to inform more greenies about all their rights. Maybe save a few from becoming statistics.
