The Rights You Have When Interacting With the Police, Summed Up In One Detailed Infographic

The United States has remarkable Constitutional rights, enshrined in the Bill of Rights. Unfortunately these rights have been increasingly eroded in recent years. One of the main reasons these rights have been slipping away is due to the ignorance of the general public concerning their protections against police and State imposition.

A new infographic has been released by Online-Paralegal-Programs.com which seeks to help the general public understand what rights they do and don’t have when interacting with the police.

The infographic includes information on filming a police encounter, as well as DUI stops and when there are requirements to show identification (something which from varies state to state).

Check out the infographic below:
