- Richard McDonald has done a superb job.
- He has them organized a bit differently. You can get into his extensive files via the highlighted "File Room" link.
- File Room - http://www.state-citizen.org/files/
- allfiles.txt is a MUST PRINT OUT AND AT LEAST READ THE TITLES OF ALL HIS FILES.
- allfiles.txt - is an index only of all of his files by group. I printed this out and its 23 pages.
- The index is NOT linked to the files so you have to figure out what file you want & note its applicable group
- then go back to that group in "Index of /files and find the file.
- He has dozens of documents on the DOT debauchery and how to deal with it.

We donít live in the good old days when the police were on our side any more. These suggestions could help keep you out of trouble.
Things to Remember When Confronted By The
If you have a confrontation with the police - know your rights and know what you
should or should not do to give them up. Just follow these 10 rules:
1. Donít Talk.
Do not say a word to the officer. Just shut up! I cannot stress to you the
importance of this rule. Do not talk! Do not attempt to convince the officer of
your innocence. Everyone is innocent, no one should be arrested and no one
should be in jail and that is all the officer hears all day every day. He / she
does not care generally whether you are innocent or guilty and there is nothing
that he / she can do at this point. Most times, when people speak to officers
they say something that makes their situation far worse. Keep your mouth shut,
there will be plenty of time to talk later.
2. Donít Run.
I said above to listen to the officer and follow his / her instructions. Do not
be scared and do not let the liquid courage, aka alcohol, convince you that you
can outrun the twelve officers and helicopter that will track you down. Also,
police become highly suspicious that someone running has a weapon and may be
quick to draw their weapon. Additionally, when they do run you down expect much
stronger force used to subdue a fleeing suspect.
3. Never Resist Arrest.
Perhaps the most important thing not to do is touch the police officer at all!
Again, sober up quick and follow what the officer says. Many people attempt to
bump the officer or swat an officers hands away. This often falls under the
assault statutes and now a minor misdemeanor arrest becomes a FELONY. Thus a
reckless driving charge leads to a year or more in state prison. Additionally,
touching the officer in any way can lead to a baton in the mouth.
4. Donít Believe the Police.
It is perfectly legal for the police to lie to get you to make an admission. The
police frequently separate two friends and tell one the other one ratted him /
her out. Because of the lie, the other friend now rats the first friend out.
Police and detectives also state that ďit will be easierĒ to talk nowÖLIES!!!
DONíT BELIEVE THIS BS! It will only be easier for the police to prove their
5. No Searching.
Do not allow the police to search anywhere! If the police officer asks, they do
not have the right to search and must have your consent. If you are asked make
sure you proclaim to any witnesses that ďYou (the police) do not have consent to
search.Ē If they perform the search anyway, that evidence may be thrown out
later. Also, if you consent to a search, the officers may find something that
you had no idea you had placed somewhere, ie: marijuana left by a friend. (my input, what could be more frightening than law enforcement planting something illegal that you HONESTLY have no recollection!)
Remember, that denying the police consent to search DOES NOT give them the
probable cause they would need to conduct a search.
6. Donít Look At Places Where You Donít Want Police to Search.
Police are trained to watch you and react to you. They know that you are nervous
and scared and many people look to the areas that they donít want the police to
search. Do not react to the search and do not answer any questions. LOOK DOWN
AND KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!!
7. Do Not Talk Shit to the Police.
I donít care if you have been wrongly arrested and the true culprit is standing
in front of you. Donít talk shit! Police hear all day that my dad is the the
Governorís Assistantís Intern and I will have your badge for this! Police have a
lot of discretion in the upcoming charges brought. Police can add charges,
change a misdemeanor to a felony, or even talk to the prosecutor that is
ultimately prosecuting you.
8. If Police Come to Your Home, Do not Let Them In and Do Not Step Outside Your
If the police are confident you have committed a felony, they are coming in
anyway, because they generally donít need an arrest warrant. Make it clear to
the police by stating: ďNo you may not come inĒ, or ďI am comfortable talking
right hereĒ, or ďYou need a search warrant to enter my home.Ē If they return,
your attorney can arrange for you to turn yourself in should that be necessary
and you will spend no time in jail between the hearings.
9. Outside Your Home Arrested, Do Not Accept Offer to Go In Your Home for
The officer may say to you, how about you go inside and change, freshen up, talk
to your wife, husband, get a jacket, or any other reason. The police will
graciously escort you in and then tear your home apart searching through it.
Also, do not let them secure your car. Your car is fine. Remember they are lying
to you. They donít give a damn if you are really cold or if you need to talk to
your wife or husband.
10. Donít say a word.
Itís incredible how many people feel that they can convince the officer, the
booking officer or a detective (if your case reaches that stature) that they are
not guilty. YOUR CASE IS NOT DECIDED BY THESE PEOPLE. They have no affect on
your records. Wait to speak to your lawyer! The courts give enormous weight to
ďconfessionsĒ during this stage. A suspect is almost NEVER released after being
Follow these ten simply rules religiously and many of your rights will remain
intact. I donít care how nervous, scared or drunk you are, THESE RULES ARE VERY
IMPORTANT, and will help you tremendously in the short and long run. And
remember - we are not your lawyer!
You'll notice that rule #1 and rule #10
are the same. SHUT UP!
There is a very good reason for that.
Forget the word "can." Anything you say to the police WILL be used against you.
Matter of fact, having worked in all of the following at one time or another, I can tell you that you never, never, NEVER give one word of information to the police, a bank, or an insurance company that you are not required to give. NOT ONE WORD!
These people are not your friends.
Get used to it.
