Avoiding Trouble with the Police – Part 1

After the riots and property distruction in Ferguson, MO, and Baltimore, MD, avoiding trouble with the police seemed like a good topic to revisit. Unfortunately, more upheaval is probably on the way to these and other cities.

None of us wants to get caught up in what has taken place in these troubled spots. However, if you’re traveling, you may run into check points and road blocks in places where you didn’t expect them. What are some ways of avoiding trouble with the police?

What should you do if you’re stopped by a policeman? What if he wants to search your car or home?

Should you whip out a copy of the Constitution and stand up for your rights? Or should you be passive and do everything you’re asked to do?

What should you do so you don’t unintentionally end up on the “wrong side of the law?”

With such questions in mind, this week and next week, on DestinySurvival Radio I’m reairing conversations I had back in September of 2011 with Steve Silverman, founder and executive director of FlexYourRights.org. Nearly everything we talked about is still relevant and timely. Hear our first conversation by listening to DestinySurvival Radio for May 21, 2015 (Right click to download.)

Be sure to check out FlexYourRights.org and get your own copy of one or both of their excellent DVD’s.
