We have previously posted the info-graphic below the text, however, when I see someone voluntarily consenting to a search of their vehicle, it drives me crazy. I guess it's the public schools combined with the intimidation factor that make folks just roll over for the 'Man'.
You'd be surprised how respectful law enforcement officers are here in the American Redoubt and it's never an issue if you assert your rights, at least it hasn't been for me. If you're still living in the big city I suggest that you purchase a vehicle recording device and reprint a small business card stating the following, so you can either hand it to the officer, or read it aloud.
" I refuse to consent to any search whatsoever. As such, I do not consent to a search of my premises, my person, my immediate location or any vehicle or effects. I hereby exercise my rights as enumerated by the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. I DEMAND TO HAVE MY ATTORNEY PRESENT PRIOR TO AND THROUGHOUT ANY QUESTIONING AT ALL. Additionally, I wish to consult with my attorney prior to any discussion with law enforcement officers on the subject of Waiver. "
I have used it once, it was scary as hell, but the cop actually smiled, handed my license and registration back to me and bid me farwell. No kidding, it was totally out of the box nuts, but I laughed as I drove away. It was a late night speeding stop on a lonely highway in Wyoming, maybe that had something to do with it, who knows.
