What You Know About Them Texas Boys?

I know not too many are as live as this one.


Check it out. Never Get Busted.

Of course I'm not ruling out the possibility that this is all a plan by the man to arrest and ship everyone who orders this DVD off to a Shitdeathistaneze Concentration Camp. I don't know. But I like what I see so far. I'm ordering it, fuck it. I'll let you know how it is.

Peace to Melissa M. in New Mexico for sending along the link. This could be fantastic. Review coming soon.

Looks like an interesting video. My question is what the Feds are going to do to this tell-all-state-trooper. The unimaginative Federalie types might try to nail him under a conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substances Act, but given that this guy is a copper and not a lawyer, the more creative types might go after him for practicing law without a license (actually a felony in some states) given that he is making specific representations and giving specific advice on individuals' fourth amendment rights. That said, I'm sure he's got some good ideas.

What struck me most of all from this video clip, however, was a comment he makes in the very beginning about finding bricks of bud in a rental van after he "got permission to search the vehicle." Voluntary searches are such bullshit. What kind of rational person would VOLUNTARILY let a piggie search his car if he had pounds of weed in the trunk? Cops routinely coerce people into surrendering their 4th Amendment rights by preying on their fear and ignorance of their own rights, and it is shameful that the courts of "justice" have failed to step in and strike down these "voluntary" searches and exclude evidence that was obtained through coercion and in disregard for Constitutional rights.

David Cole's "No Equal Justice" contains the best analysis of how the racist and classist police state relies on "voluntary searches" to circumvent the 4th Amendment and perpetuate the war on drugs. It's certainly worth a read.

Originally, I was inclined not to comment further on Barry Cooper's "Never Get Busted" video without seeing the video first. .

However, after having read the following two blogs about Mr. Cooper's video, I did not wish to wait to see the video before addressing the following two issues here, particularly after having contacted and heard back from Mr. Cooper (as reprinted below) on these two issues:

- FlexYourRights reviewed the video, and shares my deep concern -- dissent, actually -- about Mr. Cooper's recommending rampant waiver of people's right to refuse a police "consent" search. Mr. Cooper's purported interest is in showing people how to conceal drug crimes, whereas my interest is in helping people know and exercise their Constitutional rights, whether or not they have anything to hide.

A person may be risking more than s/he realizes when consenting to a police search. I believe it is all too common for people in a car to throw their drugs and weapons (if they have any) into another passenger's or driver's area of the car when a traffic stop takes place. No matter how innocent the car's driver may be, consenting to a search risks the police finding contraband that someone else secretly left there...
