Summary of Ten Rules for Dealing with Police

If you don’t have time to watch all of this excellent video from flexyourrights.org that premiered at Cato a few days ago, then here’s my summary:

1. Obey, be respectful (“lick boots”), or you may be tazed. (14:00)
2. Remain silent, but lick boots. (16:00)
3. Memorize and use this line: “I don’t consent to searches.” (17:50, and 18:35 is hilarious)
4. Police lie, especially to trick you into consenting to searches. Don’t believe them. (19:28)
5. Memorize and use this line: “Are you detaining me, or am I free to go?” But lick their boots. (20:00)
6. These things are mostly avoidable: don’t expose yourself. (23:52)
7. Don’t run, lick boots. (26:50)
8. Never touch a cop, lick boots. (28:00)
un-numbered but good: “I’m going to remain silent. I’d like to see a lawyer.” (28:55)
9. Police misconduct: remember everything and hopefully someone’s filming it. (33:05)
10. Don’t let the police into your home. (39:22)
un-numbered but good: “I can’t let you in without a warrant.” (40:40)
