- DO NOT RUN – DO NOT
Resisting arrest - don't hit the officer, push the officer or slap his hands away. What probably would have been a misdemeanor is now a felony because you touched the officer. You're headed to the penitentiary now for assault on an officer.
There is a great increase in police shootings and killings around the country. Don't give the officer a reason to shoot you.
Keep your hands out of your pockets! You do not want to give the police the idea that there is a weapon in your pockets. Keep your hands visible.
to remember the officer's name and badge number.
- Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right
Don't sit there saying you want to get out of jail and you are in jail committing crimes. Do you actually want to get out or, are you just talking? Don't waste your money, your loved one's money or anybody else's money sitting up in the jail house talking on an illegal cell phone, using drugs or anything else they told you not to do. Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right.
GET YOUR MIND RIGHT
- If you are reading this and you are incarcerated, get your mind right.
- That's important – GET YOUR MIND RIGHT.
Call On God, Jesus, Buddha, Allah, or your ancestors. Ancestors are Uncle Tony who died last year, grandmother who passed long time ago and anyone else in your blood line who made the transition (died). Other ancestors are those who worked in the trenches.
Get your mind right. Learn to play the game quickly.
- YOU ONLY GET ONE TIME TO MAKE A GOOD IMPRESSION
So, it's time for trial and you're overly anxious awaiting this date. Several very small things will make this stressful situation a lot smoother and more successful. Freedom For The Poor requires some work on your part.
Appearance – For Men - A short haircut will gain yourself positive results. If you have locks, a long wildin afro or braids. I suggest that you cut your hair into a very neat low (to the scalp) hair cut. Now, I love locks, braids and semi wildin fros but, the judge and jury may not.
Have someone buy you a pair of pants that is your size – with a belt.
- During the trial, sit up straight in the chair, don't slouch down in the chair. Sit up straight and remain calm and cool – even if the police officer who arrested you lies.
Appearance – For Women
Wear a skirt that is long enough to reach your knees. Wear a blouse that covers cleavage and your arms. I would remove long fake nails and the tall hair do. Remember that you're seeking freedom – this is not a beauty contest.
- Attitude – change your negative attitude. Call on your maker, your God or ancestors. Do whatever it is you have to do – change the negative attitude. Be respectful.
- Never Give Up – Help yourself. Read, and take notes. Keep a journal with the facts of your case.
