WHO WE ARE

The Know Your Rights Foundation is an organization dedicated to informing the countless communities within the United States of their Constitutional Rights when dealing with law-enforcement at routine police stops, without such basic knowledge in many cases, leads to catastrophic even deadly encounters with the police, mostly within impoverished African American and Latin American neighborhoods.

OUR MISSION

Is to educate the urban communities on their fundamental Constitutional Rights and supply these underprivileged communities with the materials, programs and interactive workshops needed to navigate basic traffic stops, terry stops and the legal system as a whole.

TERRY STOPS & REASONABLE SUSPICION


A Terry Stop is the typical name for a police stop on foot, it gets its name from the supreme court case of “Terry vs Ohio 32 U.S. 1,” you will also find statutes within your State that follow the same rules. This case establishes the fact that an officer does not have to have probable cause as secured by the 4th amendment to stop a citizen, but only “Reasonable Suspicion” that a person has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime. However, the Supreme Court has also stated that an officer has to have “Specific and Articulable Facts” of what a person was doing that leads them to believe that the person or suspect has done, is doing, or is about to commit a crime..

TRAFFIC STOPS


When driving, the most important thing you can have in the car is a Dash-Cam. They cost anywhere from $30 – $200 on Amazon, and this is going to be your proof of what happened before, during and after the Police Stop. Police Officers often lie about why they pulled you over to get you to incriminate yourself, so having a record of what actually happened right before the officer pulls you over is TOP PRIORITY!

Probable Cause


The legal meaning of Probable Cause gets its definition from some of the following established Supreme Court cases…

Stacey v. Emery, 97 U.S. 642

“If the facts and circumstances before the officer are such as to warrant a man of prudence and caution in believing that the offense has been committed, it is sufficient.”

Director General v. Kastenbaum, 263 U.S. 25

Good faith is not enough to constitute probable cause. That faith must be grounded on facts within knowledge which in the judgment of the court would make his faith reasonable.

But it gets its main definition from The Supreme Court case of…
