Designed for roommates/house guests/etc. who may answer the door and not know how to handle the situation when put on-the-spot.
Of course this is just a minimal & basic rundown, and yes, I realize that constitutional rights are bullshit, but your un-radicalized roommate may need the ‘legal’ confidence boost in the face of the cops..
PLEASE RE-USE POSTER FOR WHATEVER
The bill opens by reading:
“The legislature recognizes that both the federal and state constitutions contain certain sacred protections against warrantless searches by law enforcement. Federal and state courts have recognized certain reasonable exceptions to the warrant requirement consistent with common sense and public safety.”
In a recent opinion, the Washington State Supreme Court overruled previous case law and determined that a school resource officer could not conduct searches of students. If enacted, this new law would allow police to search students much more easily.
Some believe if enacted, the law will help make schools a safer environment. Others parents feel it undermines their parental rights and worry about the possible consequences.
Washington state parents like Doug Weller, who homeschools his children, sees this as yet another example of the way public schools are becoming.
“This is indicative of the attitude of the federal government: security trumps freedom. This, of course, is a patently false and dangerous mindset, to sacrifice freedom for a sense of security only available through the government. This bill fails to even acknowledge parental rights,” said Weller.
In fact, according to the National Household Education Survey Program, 1.5 million students were homeschooled in 2007, a 36% increase since the last study conducted in 2003.
“I believe the states accepting so much federal money for public education strips schools from their ability to determine education free of the social engineering that is taking place in our schools today.
“The state has been allowed to believe that they hold deed to your children. Apathy in the home and voting booth have made this possible as parents cede more and more authority and responsibility over to the state in general and the public schools in particular,” continued Weller.
Deputy traveling 119 MPH (in a 45 MPH zone) Before ‘Spectacular’ Crash
Can you even tell that this is an unmarked Chevy Tahoe? That’s because a Columbia, SC Sheriff’s Deputy rolled it at 119 MPH while driving through a 45 MPH zone. Allegedly chasing a gun-wielding drug dealer, the officer in question has just been suspended for five days without pay.
The incident occurred way back in the halcyon days of March while the officer was responding to a reports of shots fired at a fellow officer. But, documents released later show the Deputy in question, Benjamin Dale Weatherford, wasn’t actually dispatched to the incident and the officer who was, riding as a passenger, wasn’t dispatched until 25 minutes later, calling into question Weatherford’s haste.
The crash occurred just as the Tahoe was about to enter a 35 MPH zone. Another car, unable to see the speeding truck, pulled out in front, necessitating evasive maneuvers that caused the Tahoe to strike a curb and roll. All three Sheriff’s Deputies in the vehicle suffered only minor injuries.
According to a South Carolina Highway Patrol MAIT Team, the Tahoe was traveling at 119 MPH “less than a second before the impact.” Impressive.
