The Wingnut will be hosting some Know Your Rights style workshops in the month of August. Anyone interested in helping to facilitate the workshops should contact the Wingnut. And if you want to attend please let us know!

In the mean time, here are some quick review points on your legal rights. Always a good thing to stay current on.

Also, don’t forget to let people know that the Supreme Court just ruled that cops do not have to tell you your Miranda Rights. So it is important that people involve their own Miranda Rights. Vocalize your right to remain silent and your desire to speak to a lawyer. Do not wait for the police to initiate that part of the conversation.
