6 Things You Should Never Say to a Police Officer (that you think are ok)

Police Officers are generally overworked underpaid and overweight. They’re taught not to say certain phrases which include:

“Calm down”
“There’s nothing I can do to help you”
“You’re going to get a ticket if you keep this up”
“You’re going to get arrested if you keep this up”

Keep in mind, Police Officers are taught NOT to say any of the above phrases. There’s probably a good chance that you’ve heard at least one of them if you’ve ever dealt with the Police before. This is definitely a “two-way street” since there are phrases we shouldn’t say to the Police…but probably do any way. Continue Reading…


Beware of these Common Holiday Crimes

The holiday season has arrived. Most people would say this is best part of the year. Everyone seems to be more pleasant, cheerful and kinder than usual. The holidays also bring  something out in less fortunate people…desperation. Television has us believe that “criminals” or “thieves” are teenage males that have no families and no homes. And these crooks commit crimes wearing black hooded sweatshirts and sunglasses. What about someone with a family? It could even be someone who is fortunate enough to have a job during these harsh times. What if it was your neighbor? Continue Reading…


5 Painful Lessons From Occupy Wall Street That You Don’t Want to Learn

  • Scott Olsen standing at Occupy Wall Street – fractured skull
  • Kaylee Dedrick standing at Occupy Wall Street – pepper sprayed in the eyes
  • Protester standing in Oakland – struck by rubber bullets
  • Felix Rivera-Pitre marching with other protesters – grabbed from behind and punched in the face
  • Christina Gonzalez filming Occupy Wall Street – arrested

The “Occupy Wall Street” Protest is now entering its second month and has expanded worldwide into Boston, Hong Kong, London, Rome, and other cities. Like anything else, most people go into these activities thinking they know how things work just because they watch “law and order” and end up with mace in the face. What you don’t know can still hurt you.

Consider the Following

You’re standing by a police barricade and the crowd is cheering and chanting. As the crowd moves forward, they push you into the barricade and it falls down. You try to move back but there’s not enough room with the large amount of people behind you.

At this point, the Police can… Continue Reading…

How to Get a Ticket for Marijuana Instead of Getting Arrested

Weed, pot, plant, bud, Mary Jane, grass, herb, schwag, and reefer, call it what you want. The cops can smell it faster than a cup of coffee and a donut sitting in front of a fan. It’s important that we don’t confuse marijuana with other drugs, narcotics or controlled substances as different rules apply to each.

The main problem with marijuana is that it has such a strong and distinct smell. If you walk or drive past the cops with marijuana on you or in your car, they will probably smell it. This creates a problem because we’re now inviting cops to stop us when they otherwise would’ve thought we weren’t doing anything illegal.

There are some little things that can make big differences when it comes to getting caught with marijuana. We’re going to focus on the differences between getting a ticket and getting arrested. Continue Reading…


How Meter Maids Can Get You Arrested

We’ve all seen them lurking, creeping, hiding in the corners. Holding their little scanners in their hands keeping a close eye on those parking meters. And if that meter expires for more than a second you can bet they’ll be giving you a freshly printed ticket.

Side note: You’re allowed to park in a spot with a broken parking meter for one hour in New York City

Traffic agents have an extremely high quota so they quickly scurry about and scan the registration stickers on cars. This allows them to write multiple tickets in a short amount of time.

Traffic agents can be extremely unfair sometimes.

If you do happen to find your car being scanned Continue Reading…
