Mar 01, 2007 Support the Flex Your Rights Foundation
Watch this video before you see another cop.
Yesterday, I met for the first time Steve Silverman and Scott Morgan from Flex Your Rights, which produces the above Busted video. Steve, Scott, and Flex Your Rights are class acts, and so is their Busted video, which provides an excellent overview for leveling the playing field with cops, who are trained to convince people to waive their rights to remain silent and to refuse searches. I believe so strongly in the Busted video, that it has been prominently featured on this blog ever since I obtained FlexYourRights’ authorization to do so.
Our law firm donates financially to Flex Your Rights‘ indispensable work teaching people how to know and assert their civil liberties, and I encourage you to do the same. You don’t even need to consider it a donation, because they have great products available for each donation. I recommend all three products at their online store: the excellent Busted video, the excellent companion — of sorts — Beat the Heat manual by Katya Komisaruk (whom I first met in 2000 when training to defend April 16 anti-globalization activists); and their t-shirts refusing searches and demanding to see search warrants.
Steve and Scott are a one-of-a-kind powerhouse spreading the practical how-to gospel for flexing our Constitutional rights. Their organization merits your financial gifts for them to keep spreading the good word. Jon Katz.
