All you have to remember and say are these magic words: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Am I free to go?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t consent a search.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to remain silent.Ã¢â‚¬Â Police Officer Stops You To stop you a police officer must have a specific reason to suspect your involvement in a specific crime and should be able to tell you that reason when you ask . This is known as reasonable suspicion. Reasons a police officer might pull you over will usually be for some type of Ã¢â‚¬Å“traffic violation,Ã¢â‚¬Â such as speeding or maybe not using your blinker. The traffic stop may seem wrong or unfair, but the police officer believes he has a reason to stop you. Throwing a cigarette butt or a gum wrapper out your car window is reason enough for the police to pull you over, ticket you for littering and start asking you all sorts of personal questions. Your Rights During a Traffic Stop. Top Five (5) Things to Know About Protecting Yourself from the Police: #1 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Safety. The first thing is your safety! You want to put the police officer at ease. Pull over to a safe place, turn off your ignition, stay in the car and keep your hands on the steering wheel. At night turn on the interior lights. Keep your license, registration, and proof of insurance always close by. Build trust, be a Ã¢â‚¬Å“good citizen,Ã¢â‚¬Â be courteous, stay calm and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t complain. Show respect and say things like Ã¢â‚¬Å“sir and no sir.Ã¢â‚¬Â The idea is to get the police officer to understand that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re just an average ordinary citizen and let you get on your way down the road. Never bad-mouth a police officer, stay in control of your words, body language and your emotions. Never touch a police officer and donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t run away! #2 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Talking To A Police Officer. The only questions you need to answer is your name, address and date of birth and nothing else! Instead of telling the police officer who you are simply give him your drivers license or I.D. card. The only the information the police officer needs to know about you can be found on your drivers license, so donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t volunteer any more information to the police officer! If he ask you any questions politely say, Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to remain silent, am I free to go?Ã¢â‚¬Â and then donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say another word. #3 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m Going to Remain Silent.Ã¢â‚¬Â The Supreme Court has made a new ruling that you should Never Talk to a Police OfficerÃ¢â‚¬Â without an attorney, but thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a CATCH! New Ruling Before youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re allowed not to talk to a police officer, you must tell the police officer Ã¢â‚¬Å“That YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re Going to Remain SilentÃ¢â‚¬Â and then keep your mouth shut! (How can you be falsely accused and charged if you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say anything?) Remember anything you say or do can and will be used against you at any time by the police. Police have help put innocent people in prison just because of a couple of words that were spoken to a police officer. #4 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Just Say NO to Police Searches! If a police officer didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need your permission, he wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be asking. Never give permission to a police officer to search you, your car or your home. If a police officer does search you, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t resist and keep saying Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t consent to a search.Ã¢â‚¬Â #5 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Ã¢â‚¬Å“Am I Free to Go?Ã¢â‚¬Â As soon as the police officer ask you a question ask him Ã¢â‚¬Å“Am I Free to Go?Ã¢â‚¬Â Remember if you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ask if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re Ã¢â‚¬Å“free to go,Ã¢â‚¬Â you may be voluntarily staying. If the police officer says that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re are being detained or arrested, tell the police officer that Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to remain silent.Ã¢â‚¬Â New Ruling Ask for a supervisor. If all else fails and you feel the police officer is abusing your rights, ask the police officer to call his Ã¢â‚¬Å“supervisorÃ¢â‚¬Â to your location. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Some states you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have this right, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s worth asking.Ã¢â‚¬Â Anything You Say Can And Will Be Used Against You Police officers need your permission to have a conversation, never give it to them! Never voluntarily talk to a police officer, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no such thing as a Ã¢â‚¬Å“friendly chatÃ¢â‚¬Â with a police officer. The Supreme Court has recently ruled that you should NOT talk to a police officer without a lawyer and you must say Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to remain silent.Ã¢â‚¬Â It can be dangerous to talk to a police officer or a Federal Agent anytime like during a traffic stop, in a public place or at police station. Innocent people have talked to a police officer and ended up in jail and prison, because they spoke to a police officer without an attorney. Police officers have the same right as you Ã¢â‚¬Å“Freedom of Speech,Ã¢â‚¬Â they can ask you anything they want, but you should never answer any of their questions. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let the police officer try and persuade you to talk! Say something like Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sorry, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have time to talk to you right now.Ã¢â‚¬Â If the cop insists on talking to you, ask him Ã¢â‚¬Å“Am I free to go?Ã¢â‚¬Â The police officer may not like when you refuse to talk to him and challenge you with words like, Ã¢â‚¬Å“If you have nothing to hide, why wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t you speak to me? Say again Ã¢â‚¬Å“I told you I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have time to talk to you right now, Am I free to go?Ã¢â‚¬Â If you forget or the police officer tricks you into talking, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ok just start over again and tell the police officer Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to remain silent.Ã¢â‚¬Â The Supreme Court has ruled that if a police officer doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t force you to do something, then youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re acting Ã¢â‚¬Å“voluntarily.Ã¢â‚¬Â That means if the police officer starts being intimidating and you do what he ask because youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re Ã¢â‚¬Å“afraidÃ¢â‚¬Â you still have done it voluntarily. (Florida v. Bostick, 1991) If you do what the police officer ask you to do such as allowing him to search your car or answer any of his questions, you are Ã¢â‚¬ËœvoluntarilyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ complying with his Ã¢â‚¬Ëœrequests.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t comply, just keep your mouth shut unless you say Ã¢â‚¬Å“Am I Free to Go?Ã¢â‚¬Â or Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t consent to a search.Ã¢â‚¬Â You have every right NOT to talk to a police officer and you should NOT speak to a police officer unless you have first consulted with a lawyer who has advised you differently. Police officers depend on fear and intimidation to get what they want from you. Police officers might say they will Ã¢â‚¬Å“go easyÃ¢â‚¬Â on you if you talk to them, but this is not true! The government has made a law that allows police officers to lie to the American public. Another reason not to trust the police! So be as nice as possible, but stand firm on your rights! Where do some of your rights come from? Read the Fourth and Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
