To my friends and family:
If I am pulled over, I will obey the police officer’s commands; even if I think I have done nothing wrong.
If arrested, I will not resist; even if I think I have done nothing wrong.
If questioned, I will exercise my right to have counsel present; even if I think I have done nothing wrong.
If arrested I will not waive my right to a speedy trial; even if I think I have done nothing wrong.
If I feel I have been mistreated by law enforcement, I will air my grievances in civil court, not on the streets.
If I fail to abide by my own rules and am shot while not obeying the commands or resisting, I ask my friends and family to realize that I died due to ignorance or I committed suicide by cop.
To Law Enforcement:
If you light me up, I will pull over and obey your commands, so please do not escalate the situation for whatever reason.
If arrested, I will not resist; so please do not go all macho to prove to yourself that you are in control.
If I exercise my right to counsel, it does not mean I have done anything wrong, it means I am getting someone in the room who understands the law better than me and will witness all that is said and done.
If I am arrested, I will also not waive my right to a speedy trial; so you better have a rock solid case from the get-go.
If you abuse your position, please understand that I will take at a minimum, civil action against you. If you break the law, I will file criminal charges against you. The law is for all without exception.
If I fail to abide by your commands, before placing bullets in my body, please make sure I can hear you. I am getting older and finding it more difficult to hear things. Also, I have no intention of ending my life prematurely.
To the media:
Quit slanting incidents to increase ratings. Your job is to report the facts and allow the masses to form their opinions from there; not to tell the masses what you want them to think.
That is all.
