Know Your Rights: While You Still Have Some

The Satellite has a good article this month on a short film called Busted: Citizens Guide to Surviving Police Encounters. Created by Flex Your Rights ( and narrated by Ira Glasser, former executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, the film "aims to take the fear and uncertainty out of run ins with the law by dispelling law enforcement myths and providing citizens knowledge of their basic legal rights," according to the article.

You can read the article on the indy monthly's web site here.

And don't forget The Clash song, Know Your Rights. I appaerntly forgot this line: "You have the right to freeeee Speech as long as you're not dumb enough to actually try it."

Isn't there a line like, "know your rights ... all three of them ..." Great song. BTW, I saw a clash sticker on a car with a "W, the president" sticker on it as well; go figure.
