5 Reasons You Should Never Agree to a Police Search (Even if You Have Nothing to Hide)

Submitted by smorgan on

I have a new piece at Huffington Post breaking down why you should never, ever agree to a police search. It's a topic I revisit often, and each time I find a new audience that needs to hear this message. It's yet another tragic consequence of our all-consuming criminal justice conveyor belt that so many people have forgotten how to use their most basic rights at the time those rights matter most. If you're someone who assumes it's pointless to refuse a search because "they're just gonna do it anyway," then this article is for you. Please pass it along.
