... before you can understand this:

New USA policy of having the police have 72 hours to submit an incident report,

 

Scenario: Cop pulls you over in Dallas. I love this quoted response.

Cop: Do you know why I pulled you over?

You: Before I answer those questions, I will now exercise my right to remain silent for 72 hours. If you'll give me your card with number or email on it, I'll get back to you after I've reviewed your Dash Cam video clip and verified your radar gun's accuracy/reliability and it's calibration/servicing record, as well as discuss the case potential with other people involved with your citation record Of course, I'm not personally going to get back to you, my attorney will contact you directly. Have a nice day officer. I really appreciate the short chat we've had, but I have to be somewhere asap.


The link I received came with this, which I think probably only applies to Amerika:


Let's be proactive here and make sure we do this with every possible citation, ticket, arrest or incident involving police in the areas these laws are being passed. I'm sure hundreds of police municipalities are making the same moves to pass this kind of law after reading these headlines this morning. We are waking up and they are scared shitless. Maybe, just maybe, we'll begin to hold them accountable for their actions and in turn they'll become more responsible for them.
