Cop's do NOT see us as ' fellow citizens ', they see us as ' civilians ' like the military does. It makes it a lot easier to abuse and deny
rights to someone that is not the ' same ' as you are, understand? It makes it really easy for a cop to use excess force, or lie on the stand, or
deny rights..they see us as ' them ', all civilians to cops are just potential lawbreakers. If we are not guilty of something now, we no doubt are
guilty of something else, and so we deserve the abuse they give us..see?
Justifying brutality and lying and misuse of authority is part and parcel of being a cop; it is unlike any other job. Cops are allowed to shoot you,
and all they have to do is fill out some papers saying why they did it. Cops are allowed to lie, on the job, legally, and we wonder why so many people
do not know their rights, and are too timid to use them.
Take for example the incident with this kid in the parking lot. He was frightnened and it showed. That allowed the cop to play him and demean him.
That cop told HOW MANY LIES in that brief span of time? He kept threatening to take the kid to jail, but here never did. If a cop is going to take
you, they take you, they do not use it as a bluff. You cannot bluff a guy with a royal straight flush, which is what a person who knows and uses his
rights has for a hand. That kid thought that he had a pair and that the cop had a full house, and that was wrong. The cop was bluffing.
The kid made the mistake of PLAYING THE COP'S GAME , which is the old game of intimidation and lying. The cops LIE and say that the law gives them
unlimited authority, such as when the cop in this case tells the kid " I can charge you for not obeying the lawful order of an officer ", because
the kid would not answer personal questions, which is ANY question OTHER THAN IDENTITY.
The cops lies was this : If you do not give up your right to remain silent, then I can charge you with disobeying my order for you to talk . Of course
that is a total lie; a LAWFUL order is the ONLY kind that we must follow, and to give up any rights is NOT a lawful order. The cop wanted the kid to
think that ANY order that a cop gives is a LAWFUL order by virtue of the cop's authority!! But that is a total lie!!
Lawful orders can NEVER be ones that make us ignore or violate our Constitutional Rights, never. That cop should have been told this: " Officer,
either charge me or release me; you are illegally detaining me from this moment on. I have nothing else to say, and your continued detention of me is
not accomplishing anything. Lets get to the jail so I can post bond and call my attorney, or let me go. I am tired of hearing all of your lies and
bluffs. I am calling your bluff, arrest me falsely so I can sue you or let me go now"
Usde your own words. of course, but NEVER show a weak hand. Let him know that you are NOT afriad, that really makes them uncomfortable and nervous
about messing with you, and that you are not some punk to be insulted and demeaned. If that cop had been in my face spitting and scremaing, I would
have just calmly said " Officer, you are spitting in my face for no reason, and now I will have to report this and go to the hospital and get an AIDS
test; who knows what diseases you have".
Always stay calm and never raise your voice. Your being calm does several things : It allows you to say what you want to and no kore, and you are
not escalating the event by yelling. If you are calm and cool, your words take on a greater meaning than if they were screamed. Of course you have to
decide if the cop is going to get physical; if so back off and be as humble as necessary to get out of the situation, then by all means report it
later and file suit.Do not get hurt unnecessarily by an out of control cop; but the majority do NOT want to have to explain why they used force unless
they have a good case so most will not hit you if you take a stand; at worst they will find some Mickey Mouse charge and haul you in. Thats a pain but
not the end of the world and it gives you the chance to sue them when the charges are dropped .
Each case must be dealt with individually. But in no case do you have to follow illegal orders such as having to speak and answer questions. The kid
told the cop about his 4th and 5th amendment rights and for once the cop was stymied for a minute, he seemed amazed that a young kid would have the
courage and the knowledge of the law and call his bluff. The cop backed down and used a few more threats about jail and then let him go. That cop KNEW
that he would LOSE this whole case, and badly, if he arrested the kid. Why? Because the kid had PROOF!!
We MUST have proof because the cops lie all the time and they get away with it. Judges do not usually want to insult the cops by being dubious about
thgeir testimony but if they get too crazy the judge has to step in and dismiss the case. Judges do NOT like people appealinmg obviously bad decisions
because the judge above them wonders why it got to them in the first place. Bad cases are dealt with at the lower levels.
So, in summary, if you can get a camera and sound outfit for your car, do so. Stand up for your rights and do NOT let some cop bluff you. Do NOT
be afraid of jail, it is NOT that bad> You will NOT be raped and killed by murderers before you can make bail and get out, especially for some petty
offense . The FEAR of jail is the tool the cops use the most to imtimidate and bluff people; they make people think that some horrible fate awaits
them at the station, and thats not true. You make a call and post bond or sign your name and go. Then your attorney rips the cop a new one and you sue
him in Federal court for violating your rights.
Just do NOT show any fear to a cop, they feed on it, as seen in the video of the kid here; the kid whined and backed up every time the cop bluffed
about going to jail. That cop had NO intention of arresting that kid, especially after he found out about a secure feed!! he KNEW he was busted and
all he could do was bluster and bluiff and lie.
Use em or lose em!! Your rights, that is.
