    Best advice ever. If I'm going to invoke my rights it's going to be through this method. All I need to do is keep a good mental record of what is going on so I can tell my attorney. An officer forgets to read me my rights? No problem, not my job to remind him of that. But I will remember so that my attorney can work it from that end. I can always use a nice payday lol.

    But seriously, too many people don't know how to pick their battles and when to fight them. No one like "being outsmarted" We only have to look at Martial Talk to see how aggressive that turns out sometimes. It amazes me to see how some will think it will turn out differently in real life.

  2. Well yeah, and that is why 9 times out of 10..police departments lose those cases.

    You gotta follow the Supreme Law of the Land, not that which hands you your paycheck.

    This to the Administrator, I put this thread on unwatch, yet I am still receiving alerts, do I need to ignore individual members that tag me from this thread?

    If someone quotes you, unless you have them on ignore, you will get an alert no matter the thread. You always have the option to just see what thread they quoted you on, and not open it up though.

    If someone mentions you in a thread (by putting the @ before your username), you'll be notified, whether you're watching the thread or not. I don't know if it would notify you if you've ignored them - I haven't tried that before.
     
  5. Thank you, I will put them on ignore.
     
  6. I am assuming, that you can't ignore moderators correct?

    9 out of 10? That isn’t even close to correct.

    I just felt like posting this. Just because. Hopefully it won't offend too many people. :)

    Be very polite and lose your attitude
    They want to move on , too
    If it’s serious then keep your mouth shut until you consult a lawyer123
