I am sure with this advice and my dominating middle class American values I won't be seeing any self inflected arrest in my future.
BUT the real value of this book is that it enlightens you to the CONSEQUENCES of being arrested. They are huge and life changing. Pay attention. The cost of the book is nothing in comparison to understanding the consequences of being arrested. The book explains clearly (and with examples) that just because you were not convicted of the crime you were originally arrested for doesn't mean that the arrest disappears from your record. The arrest will NEVER disappear, it will always be there to haunt you and come back and bite you in the you know what. Your employer, your bank, your mortgage loan officer, your new love interest, everybody will see the arrest. There will be no mention that you were not convicted. People will think you were arrested, you are guilty. They will ask themselves "Should I associate with this person, do I want him or her in my company?"
Hold on though, it gets Worse. He talks about what's going on in electronic surveillance. Pay attention because "Big Brother" is.
In the end the book is the real deal. It's not a conspiracy "theory" book. Your getting it straight from the horse's mouth.Read more ›
As a criminal defense lawyer, I'm always looking out for books that are written to be easy to understand for non-lawyers. (As a blogging criminal defense lawyer, I do what I can to write on the topic myself.)
This book is not that. It's ignorant drivel. I know some criminal defense lawyers who even question if it was really written by a police officer, as it purports to be.
But seriously, mess yourself to avoid arrest? I don't think that's going to work. Some of the police cars these days actually have hard plastic back seats. They can disinfect and hose those if they need to do so. The end result of following this advice is that you're going to end up sitting in your messy pants for awhile, because they sure aren't going to let you wash them out while you're in holding, or booking.
This book is all about the opposite of what I think we need to do. This book is about demeaning yourself before law enforcement, when what you should be doing is making yourself aware of your rights and then (carefully) exercising them. When (not if, unfortunately) that fails, you should be filing a complaint against the officer, and under the right circumstances you should sue. That's the only way things are going to change. (Complaints, in particular, can help because even though the police force will find them "unfounded," they rack up. And criminal defense attorneys like myself can run motions that give us access to those, so eventually we're able to show that a particular cop is not to be trusted, which can result in less of his victims going to jail, or prison, and possibly result in his being reassigned or terminated.)
If you're looking for serious advice on how to "arrest-proof" yourself, this book is not the place to look.
