I encourage everyone to read, "Beat the Heat: How to Handle Encounters with Law Enforcement." I see where Anderson went wrong- don't f*cking taunt
nor argue with the police (even as justified as you really are to do so)! You can't talk your way out of dealing with these folk- the majority of
whom are total jerks; yet these very jerks are nonetheless bound by the very same laws which they are sworn to enforce.
In ANY scenario with the police, you are only required to give them your name and address, not your SSN, height, etc. However, if you are driving,
you must give them your License, Proof of Insurance and Registration, but nothing more (including your SSN- never give that out!). Remember the magic
words: "Am I being Detained?" "Am I free to go?" and as SOON as you are aware that you are NOT free to go, say: "I will remain silent, I would
like to see a lawyer." It is always best use your right to REMAIN SILENT!! Contrary to popular belief, no Prosecutor can use that against you in
court, and in fact, your Public Defender can call for (and be guaranteed) a Mistrial if the Prosecution tries to use your invocation or your 1st
Amendment Rights (freedom of speech which includes the freedom to REMAIN SILENT as a basis for your guilt.
I have used the above recital with great success: Long story-short; I was pulled over, Cops invited me to get out of the car. The schmuck begins
filing a Suspect-Report Form, asking me how much I weigh, etc. I was polite and said I was aware that I didn't have to answer any of his questions,
and then I asked if I was being detained. The Officer said, "No...*clears throat* you aren't..." YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE LOOK ON HIS FACE!!!
HAHAHA! I then asked if I was free to go. The cop then literally looked at his feet, drained of all his stupid power, and said, "yes...you are free
to go..." You have no idea-I was on top of the f*cking WORLD!!! As I was stepping into my van (clad with all sorts of risqué bumper-stickers) , the
schmuck then asks, "Are you sure you don't want to answer any more question?" At this point I REMAINED SILENT and drove away without responding.
Oh, it was awesome. You guys have to try it! Best of luck, it is a shame to hear about Anderson's abuse at the hands of these as*holes. Change is
