Police Stop: The Sequel

Coming home today, I passed the same cops in the same location where I was pulled over. Three people - two White woman and a Black man - were sitting on the curb with their hands behind their backs. A White man was talking with the officer. All of the doors on the car were open. I assume the vehicle had been searched.

It just calls to mind how lucky I was. How being confident and aware can so change the outcome of a police encounter.

Visit Flex Your Rights to watch clips on how to handle police encounters. They also have good guidelines for traffic stops here.
