Top DHS Checkpoint Refusals
By Steve Silverman
Did you see this yet? I don’t like to take credit for videos we didn’t make, but watching these brave citizens effectively “flex” their rights makes me feel like a proud parent. (Sniffle.)
Aside from exposing the legal farce of these internal DHS “security” checkpoints, the phrase “Am I free to go” has taken on a life of its own. (We prominently pushed it in both of our feature films.) We knew that this works to withdraw oneself from unwanted police encounters. Now we have more video proof!
To learn more about how to flex your rights at DHS checkpoints, check out our new article on the topic. It also includes tips for flexing your rights at DUI checkpoints, drug checkpoints, and TSA checkpoints.
As you can see from the video, one must literally exercise one’s rights to see success. The act of legal noncompliance is a skill that requires repeated, disciplined effort. (The more you do it, the easier it gets!)
When done correctly, the act creates shame and discomfort among officers tasked with detaining and interrogating innocent people. More importantly, it sends a message to law enforcement that we the people do not support unconstitutional intrusions of our privacy and liberty. That’s what flexing your rights is all about!
