I don’t want to see your vagina. Sorry.
Your Constitutional Rights During a Police Encounter
If you don’t remember any of this just remember these two phrases:
- I don’t consent to any searches.
- Am I being detained or am I free to go?
And the Supreme Court’s iffy ruling in Salinas v. Texas means that if you want to invoke your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent you have to actually say it out loud to an officer.
I’m bumping this again because while it has a lot of notes it could always use more. Knowing your rights is the first step toward protecting them. Your rights exist insofar as you exercise them. Know your rights and exert them against those in positions of authority.
