Group Seeks Mandatory Minimum Sentence For Cops Who Kill The Unarmed

Washington, DC – After a review of options by a panel of activists, a petition has been launched on Whitehouse.gov seeking to create a mandatory minimum sentence to be imposed on officers who kill unarmed citizens. The activists hope to create an incentive for officers to think before they act. Under this legislation, officers will not be able to use the excuse they were in fear for their lives when encountering a unarmed citizen.

But instead, Flori took a stand – and now they are trying to lock him up for it. Flori leaked […] Read More

10 Rules for Dealing with Cops, By a Cop

Few people understand that your constitutional rights only apply if you understand and assert them. As a 33-year law enforcement veteran and former training commander with the Maryland State Police and Baltimore Police Department, I know how easy it is to intimidate citizens into answering incriminating questions or letting me search through their belongings. This reality might make things easier for police looking to make an easy arrest, but it doesn’t always serve the interests of justice. That’s why I believe all citizens should understand how to protect their constitutional rights and make smart decisions when dealing with officers of the law. Unfortunately, this important information has remained largely unavailable to the public, despite growing concerns about police misconduct and the excesses of the war on drugs. For this reason, I agreed to serve as a technical consultant for the important new film, 10 Rules for Dealing with Police. […] Read More
