This Piece Of Advice Will Help You Stay Out Of Jail

Nobody ever expects to go to jail, if you're a criminal you don't plan on getting caught. Which is why when police in the United States come knocking, it's important you understand your rights.

For example, refusing a search or even refusing to answer incriminating questions are neither admission of guilt or reasons to detain you. The more informed you are about the situation, the better your outcome is likely to be.

When it comes to matters of the law, don't forget this statement.

Amendment IV – The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

In the meantime, this infographic will give you tips on your exercising your rights safely, whether or not you can film a police encounter and the best lines of response. Hopefully you won't find yourself ever needing to, but just in case you do it's well worth remember this handy tips.

They could keep you out of jail.
