    Used to work with City of Auburn and specifically the PD. Least when I worked there, there were some good guys on the force. They had their fair share of "Rambo-wanna-be" types, and those were the ones that cultivated the attitude of "us-vs-them" more than any other...but mostly they were good people. Did a few ridealongs on top of my everyday interactions with the officers on the job, it was an educational experience and I'd recommend this academy it to anybody wanting to learn more about police work. Never know, you might win some hearts and minds as well....

    I couldn't do it. Each and every violation or attempted violation of rights, no matter how tiny others might think it, would be the subject of a formal written complaint. Me taking notes during the ride-along would give it away.

    Worse, any time a cop asked consent for entry or a search, I'd have an irresistable urge to tell the suspect he is not required to consent.

    It just wouldn't work.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    -- Hmmm.... Maybe we should have a citizens group who does ride alongs specifically to do this. Keep them in check, and remind them that they are public servants and that they work for us. - Seems the whole idea of checks and balances in this Country went out the window some time ago. We should be doing this with our government too.

    Good idea. I do all I can to inform people, even in front of LEO's a few times.

    You would also likely be charged with obstructing a law enforcement officer in the performance of this duties... and you'd only get to do it once. I encourage you to never obstruct a public official, law enforcement officer or otherwise.
    Rev. Robert Apgood, Esq.

    A right cannot be lost by exercising it. McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025, 130 S. Ct. 3020, 3021, 177 L. Ed. 2d 894 (2010) (citing Near v. Minn., 283 U.S. 697 (1931)).

    Although IAAL, anything I say here is not legal advice. No conversations we may have privately or otherwise in this forum constitute the formation of an attorney-client relationship, and are not intended to do so.

    Wasn't there a case not long ago though that said informing someone detained by a cop of his right not to answer wasn't obstruction?

    Of course that doesn't mean they won't charge you. Let the judge figure it out.
