10 Rules for Dealing with the Police that EVERYONE Needs to Know
It's a sign of the times: EVERYONE needs to learn these rules/tips to prepare for an encounter with law enforcement agents (they are no longer called Peace Officers for a reason!). Knowledge is power, and government officials, even locally, prefer that we remain ignorant of our rights and how to assert them. Rule #1--forcing yourself to speak and act calmly during a confrontation--may seem obvious, especially to middle-class citizens, but self-control won't come easily in real life, especially when you are innocent. The rest of the rules are not so intuitive and we need to study them. Middle-class citizens, already a vanishing category, can expect to have more "encounters with law enforcement" as the planned implosion of our economy continues unabated.
