"Your Rights When Stopped By Police"
Nancy E. Albert, author
This book lays out, in everyday language, landmark rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court governing police-citizen encounters. Taken together, these decisions provide a road map to understanding the behavior required of ordinary citizens and law enforcement officers alike. Written in a lively, sometimes whimsical, narrative poetic style, it is designed to leave the reader not only entertained, but also empowered by a better understanding of one's rights and responsibilities. Extensive end notes, written in plain English, make it a useful tool for the average citizen as well as for college and graduate school students. Each chapter is tied to specific constitutional rights, such as arrests, searches, freedom of speech, the right to remain silent, gun rights, right to counsel, right to a trial and jury, and punishment. A Table of Cases at the end allows the reader to readily access particular decisions.
