    I read this and got a little irritated. I'm a white woman. When I get pulled over by the cops, I do ALL the things listed, and nobody ever sat me down and told me these things or made a big deal about it. It's common sense! I don't move unless instructed too, I follow instructions, I don't resist or act like a smart ass. Don't reach for anything, well duh. It annoys me that this is some kind of bad reflection on cops that you have to teach a black man these things. If it's normal in your culture not to know how to behave at a traffic stop, don't blame the cops. I'd think it's a good thing to get the message out there.

    Unfortunately, these's a lot of people out there that don't follow these rules and makes it unsafe for everybody.

    Here are six things that Lanham told his son that are similar to what Watson heard from his father about getting pulled over by a police officer.

    1. Avoid getting pulled over for small infractions like a broken tail light by keeping your car up to date.

    2. If you are pulled over: Keep both hands on the steering wheel or in the air.

    3. Try to stay calm and be "overly" respectful.

    4. Look straight ahead.

    5. Loudly say what you are doing, and explain every movement.

    6. Do not reach for anything, and if asked make sure you are verbally saying what you are doing as you reach.

    I once got pulled over by the cops (well okay this was many years ago and I was a much younger dumbass) and you know the move where one comes up to you on the drivers side and the partner kind of hangs back on the passenger size while they're sizing you up...
    Well anyway I looked at the two cops and I said out the window, "whoa, whoa, I don't have enough donuts for everybody..." To their credit, they both remained courteous and professional. I was let off with a warning on that occasion despite my half-assed attempt at humor.
    Needless to say, I wouldn't try that line on a cop today. (Although I must admit, it WAS kind of funny at the time).

    Be respectful and you will be fine, if you disagree that is what court is for. Officers don't want to kill anyone, we want little paperwork and just want to go home for fucks sake.

    If it's a night, I turn on the interior lights for the cop and then hands on wheel.


    I also shut the car off slowly knowing they are not wiseguys....

    I just ask : Hey pig, what's your name and do you wear any kind of bullet proof body armor when you're off duty?
    Usually scares them into leaving me alone. :coffee:

    2. Have your license and registration ready

    The very first thing I say is "hello officer, I have a loaded weapon in the car and as well as the permit to carry said weapon" all while keeping my hands on the wheel and only doing what I am asked to do or asking permission.

    In Washington state there's no state income tax so if you have a DOD decal on your car you will get pulled over for 1 mile over the limit.

    In NJ with foreclosures up the ass and taxpayers running from the state the local cops are pulling everyone over
