Stand up for your rights

Sun Staff Reporter

Approximately 100 people attended a screeing of the film, "Busted: The Citizen's Guide to Surviving Police Encounters" in the Cline Library auditorium on the campus of Northern Arizona University Wednesday night.

The screening was followed by short presentation and question-and-answer session by Flagstaff defense attorney Lee Phillips.

The film was created by a Washington, D.C.-based public education organization known as Flex Your Rights.

According to the group's Web site, the movie "realistically depicts the pressure and confusion of common police encounters ... (and) illustrates the right and wrong ways to handle different police encounters and pays special attention to demonstrating how you, the viewer, can courteously and confidently refuse police searches."

The presentation was hosted by NAU Students for Sensible Drug Policy. SSDP has more than 100 chapters in colleges and high schools nationwide.
