Do This Before Backing Down to a Cop
I had the joy recently of speaking to several hundred parents who see how unsafe, ineffective, and experimental face masks are and refuse to let their children be masked at school.
A reader in attendance that night writes:
I apologize for jumping off topic, but I have a concern about last evening’s rally. The organizers of the rally were asked to take down their sign.
We, those concerned community members, staff and students, that are asked to stand up against, and educate others, about the issues that concern us, witnessed compliance instead of standing up.
We can’t do both, we either stand up to all the indoctrination, or we back down and cease to be heard.
I’m disappointed in myself, for not speaking up at the time. I surely do not know all the ins and outs of purposeful protest, but I want to do more, and be more effective.
Any words of wisdom from you will be very appreciated, and thank you for your knowledge and passion for this so worthy cause.
An Onlooker Who Wants To Be All In
I agree with you. I did not like it either. It is my understanding that organizers fought off this request as long as they knew how to. The police got involved and told them the sign had to come down.
There were probably some honest and direct questions that organizers didn’t say, though. Every time a police officer, or any other person, tells you to stop exercising your freedoms, I find it helpful to do a full cost-benefit analysis. It helps you to more clearly see all of your options before making a decision. I recommend the following tools for that, which based on the outcome, I don’t think were put to use last night.
Questions For Anyone Trying To Give You An Ultimatum
Organizers probably did not say the words to the police, “What will happen if I don’t take it down?”
Organizers probably did not say to the police, “Will you issue me a citation?” or “Will you arrest me?” It’s better to say the former to prevent unnecessary escalation and save the latter for deeper into the conversation.
Organizers probably did not say, “How much will the ticket be for?”
Organizers probably did not say, “Which law passed by the state legislature or city ordinance will you use to fine me?”
After having that law cited to them, organizers probably did not say to the police officers, “Would you give me a moment to look that law up and familiarize myself with it?”
If threatened with arrest, organizers probably did not say to the police, “What will you arrest me for?”
Knowing the way the local DA views cases like these, organizers probably did not say, “Do you think the DA will prosecute me for that?”
Organizers also probably did not say, “When was the last time a judge in this county convicted someone for that?”
You see, if you stay calm and friendly, you can get a lot of information from a police officer after they say words to the effect of “Stop doing that or else.” If you stay calm, you can get a lot of information that can help you make a decision.
This Works In Many Situations
You can probably imagine how this same concept can be used in other situations that do not involve law enforcement. It is basically seeking to fully understand all available options open to you. When face mask wearing is ordered of you, I recommend a getting a
