This video was created by a lawyer to give the viewer tips on how to deal with police. It’s name, “The citizen’s guide to surviving police encounters” is a very accurate summary of it’s content.
It is not a lawyer video for thugs, nor does it help if you are guilty, but it does provide valuable information for innocent citizen’s whose instincts for helping and cooperating with government officials may lead them into trouble.
If a policeman is talking to you about a crime they may suspect you, the courts have ruled a law enforcement officer can lie to you, they can use anything you say against you, and cannot use anything that you say that may help you to help you.
When teaching self defense, and especially armed self defense I try to incorporate many of the concepts in this video as they are standard to the field. This is not rocket science and the video does not show anything new or groundbreaking to those in the know, but much of what it teaches is not commonly known to the millions of honest law-abiding citizens that are just trying to mind there own business and help out when asked.
I’m not a lawyer so don’t believe me – Just watch BUSTED: The Citizen’s Guide to Surviving Police Encounters.
