I think you make an excellent point......people have been "trained" that to assert your rights means "your guilty"..and to blindly comply with
I will quickly give you an example of something that happened to me....one morning I was woken by BANGING on my door....I get up to answer the door,
and the police came charging in my house without permission demanding to know where my BF was, I told them he wasn't there but they searched my house
anyways....I have this cop "in my face" demanding to know where he was....I just kept asking what is this about? I was finally told that a man my BF
had had a fight with the day before was filing assult charges, which were later dropped, it was a case of self defence.
Anyways they keep asking me where he lives, and I didn't want to tell them, so I tried to keep my directions vague, at this point they FORCED me to
get into a police car and show them where he lived.....I pulled out my cell phone and tried to call my BF but the police took away my phone, and said
I couldn't call him, there was no way he was going to run, and I knew he had done what he had to do in that fight, he even called 911 before this guy
The cops raid his house pull him out in his boxers, barefeet and handcuffs, let his dog out, refused to let me talk to him or get the dog, thankfully
one of the neighbors grabbed the dog......it was one of the most horrible experiences of my life....I felt completely helpless.....we are not not
trouble makers, very nice people actually, we were both employed, and I just couldn't believe that something like this could happen, my BF was put
threw hell, and never given a chance to explain his side before he was treated like a criminal and thrown in jail for days before he saw a judge.
This whole mess of cops more and more just assuming people are quilty and we somehow have to comply and "prove" our innocence is bogus.......ok...rant
