your civil rights

When signing their names to revolutionary documents that amounted to treason, the Founders of our country made clear that the rights of the people are not bestowed by the government.  They come only from the Creator.   

No matter how lofty the source, however, these rights mean nothing without knowledge of what they are and how to protect them.  The following resources provide some easily absorbable information on how to do exactly that.

"You Have the Right to Remain Silent."  An excellent guide to your rights when encountered by law enforcement, published by the National Lawyer's Guild (PDF)

Know Your Rights.  The ACLU's helpful guide on what you can, and can't, do during an encounter with police (PDF)
