Arrested for celebrating Jefferson birthday

April 15, 2008

Wow, I wish I could say that this surprises me, but sadly it doesn’t. This is just another in a long list of abuses that happen daily all over this country. It does deserve to be made public, but so do all the other acts of abuse by those in a position of authority. That is why you need to carry a camera with (you can pick up an aiptek for ~$150) at all times. I always carry one with me. If you see someone abusing their authority, film itand post it. Post it anywhere and tell people about it. If you are being harassed by the man, pick up the camera and start taping. Ask what you have done. Make sure you get it on tape. I realize it is easier said than done, but remain calm during your encounter, be polite. If you can keep your cool during these types of encounters it will help you in the end. No matter how right you are, if you show your ass and get loud and obnoxious, you will lose no matter the case.

In the words of The Clash: “Know your rights….. All three of them.”
