BUSTED: The Citizen’s Guide to Surviving Police Encounters
Featuring Joe Brooks, Ret. Police Captain in Manchester, CT and Speaker with Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP)
Join Wesleyan Students for Sensible Drug Policy for a film screening and discussion about how to safely interact with police, in order to flex our constitutional rights to avoid confrontation and arrest. BUSTED aims to educate the masses about the rights we might not know we even have, and to demonstrate how to sensibly use these rights to our advantage.
Joe Brooks was a police captain in Manchester CT for over 30 years, and is now a speaker with the organization Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, a group of police officers, DEA agents, prison wardens, and judges who now call for the legalization and regulation of all drugs, in order to decrease street crime and violence. Joe will speak to us about his perspective on the film BUSTED, as a former police officer…. and let’s just say, he’s not too fond of it. He will speak about his own experiences as a police officer on the streets, and what he recommends to students and civilians for avoiding police confrontation, especially surrounding drugs and alcohol. Should be an awesome event!
