Sep 18, 2009 September 21: Jon Katz speaks on “Know Your Rights” panel
On Monday, 7:00 p.m., September 21, I will be returning for a third time to the University of Maryland to spread the gospel of the Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights to refuse searches and seizures (passively, of course), to say not a damn thing to cops, and to stand firmly on those rights no matter how scary, pressure-filled, or divide-and-conquer the situation seems.
Here is the notice for the event, taking place at the Banneker B Room of the Stamp Student Union. The talk will be preceded by the above-linked Busted video, so I expect to start speaking with the panel between 7:45 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
I welcome returning to the panel stage with the lively Steve Silverman, who heads Flex Your Rights, the producer of Busted. We have appeared several times together giving critical pointers in an entertaining fashion.
A twist on the Silverman-Katz show will be the addition of campus police officer Paul Dillon. Will this become reminiscent of Sgt. Stadanko of Cheech & Chong fame, or has he taken the critical L.E.A.P.? I look forward to seeing you there.
