Am I Free to Go?

Driving home last week sometime, KPFK had an interview with Katya Komisaruk, a criminal defense lawyer and author of a newly-published book detailing one’s rights in various kinds of encounters with law enforcement, and how those rights are best exercised. I was surprised at how empowered I felt as I was driving off the freeway… then I read
Brown Equals Terrorist – devoted to the shiny new crime of “having a camera while brown” – and I’m surprised that I was surprised.

    I remembered to pack a camera! (I am not a terrrrriste, or even brown, or going to the FDR, so this should maybe be OK…)

    You do have long hair, though, which means you must be out to photograph likely places for the production, sale, and/or consumption of psychedelic drugs; I’d stay away from FDRUSA embassies if I were you.
