just gonna leave this here.. and state that had it not been for footage of what really happened, i would currently (and unfairly) be seven months in on a three year stretch in prison for felony assault on law enforcement. know your fucking rights and use them because cops are legally allowed to lie through their teeth right to your face and the state banks on YOUR conviction. fuck da police.

i understand that we are a different breed in the eyes of the police, but if you know your shit, aka the state laws of wherever the fuck you happen to be at the time, and you let them KNOW YOU KNOW, you are much less likely to have your ass fucked (excuse my terminology) by a dirty cop who thinks you're just another ignorant vagrant anarchothreat.

also, if they know they are being recorded (hopefully by someone who *isn't* being detained), it is less likely that you'll get roughed up or fucked over. i can't even count how many times i've had my pack either left where it was for the homebums to rummage through or torn apart where ever they take the possessions and half of it never got back to me, how many times i've been flat out punched in the actual fucking face or had my shoulder dislocated by a cop who knew nobody was around to see it.

cops hate us, we hate cops, i'm not saying bust out your smartphone and start nananaboobooing in their face like "I'M RECORDING YOU MOTHERFUCKER", but it's always a good idea to have proof of what went down. is the judge gonna believe your transient ass? no, they think you harass the locals and rob gas stations like the last couple of idiots with dreads and face tattoos that got arrested there. are the gonna believe the cop? OF COURSE, IT'S A COP.

Half the times the cops don't even know the laws! So if you know them, you'll be pretty good. Know your constitutional rights too.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$60.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
