There should be community groups that help inform ppl in blk communities about their rights when it comes to the cops. Many would have let them in on fear alone.

There are maybe you can start one in your community and invite a criminal attorney as a guest to talk- GREAT idea

That is a good idea ladies, especially for our young black men, particularly teens.

I don't even think many policemen know the law or people's rights well. If he didn't have a camera phone, then I think they would have forced themselves in and accused the guy of being some sort of threat. They were trying to set him up ready when on of them asked him to stop moving his hands

"Ain't playin' no games in this muhfucca"

I loved that not only did he have knowledge but he had the foresight to already have the phone recording when he opened the door.

He was right but there is no need to cite any law or precedent. Just state clearly that I do not consent to any search without a warrant.
FYI, under the Fourth Amendment, police do require a warrant to search ones home or person. Generally, there are six exceptions where a warrantless search is valid. Those are (1) Search incident to lawful arrest, (2) plain view exception, (3) consent, (4) stop & frisk (requires reasonable suspicion of criminal activity), (5) Automobile exception (w/ probable cause), and (6) Emergencies/Hot Pursuit.

Here, Officer Porky and Pinky could technically state that they saw or had probable cause to believe a dangerous felon took shelter inside their home, therefore, exigent circumstances existed to search the preemies while in hot pursuit.
I think had he not been recording the interaction it would have gone differently. However a good attorney could get it tossed, but would require resources that many in our community do not have.

The NAACP has published a pocket guide to knowing your rights when dealing with police. Anyone can get in contact with their local chapter and pick up a box full to distribute to folks in their community. If you are sincere about your efforts to combat police oversight in your respective communities, I implore each and everyone of  you to get involved on Sept 6th for the nationwide action against police brutality, more info here" rel="nofollow -

If nothing is officially going on in your town, then please reach out to your local NAACP branch for some pocket guides and distribute them.

He did an excellent job holding it together and citing his rights.  I would of been like......sure come right on in.......I'm not harboring any felon, fugitive, I wouldn't have anything to hide.  But I believe he was just challenging those officers.  I'm glad he did record it or it probably wouldn't have ended peacefully.  There are sooooooo many people, including myself, that do not know the law and/or our rights. But I'm about to get edu-ma-cated!Wink
