This was a pleasure to watch even though it deals with a very difficult subject. Copwatch is an organization that attempts to document as many police
actions as possible, within their rights. There are many simple but useful tips in here when encountering the police. Know your rights!
Yes, it is a long video. Yes, I searched and there were two other subjects concerning COPWATCH but none were this comprehensive regarding their
tactics and rights. I feel as if I am a leper here on ATS. What did I do wrong and when can it be fixed? This is good stuff.
Free4Ever2 - thanks for the post. I agree - more need to know what to do when dealing with cops, their rights, etc. Although this is more a primer
on how to deal with each stage of the confrontation, it is empowering nevertheless, imo. Cheers!
Yes, a great watch indeed. I wonder how many of us this will inspire to go out and start a "cop watch" program in your communities. I think that it
would be a great idea if we had them in "all" communities in the U.S., however with that being said, I doubt seriously that it will happen. I live
in a very small community and the same type of stuff goes on right here. In the small community that I live in 60% of all traffic stops are drug
related. Is that an amazing statistic or what?? I almost could not believe it myself until I sat in on a community meeting where the local police
department was also involved in the meeting. Amazing to me and I am sure that we are not the only "small" community that has the same type if
problem. I just thought that I would add my 2 cents here but I do think it is a great idea...sabre11004...
Sabre, thanks for the post. I wonder if I should have posted this in the new ATS media area as a full length doc? Easy to watch if you got the time
- great vid and I agree - more people need to see it!
Perhaps it's time we all form cop watchdog units. The more people on the streets seeing what is happening and knowing how to defend themselves is
important to stanuch the flow of the police/military state. Just thought some may like a break from swine flu and I think this is great.
