Remind me where you'll be working?  (in the city, not in the city...?)

In



then it'll likely be easy to get to work via muni, even.

true.  It's tough to find a place at a decent price, though I don't know why I'm surprised.

Yes, teach them to NEVER EVER EVER EVER CONSENT TO A SEARCH.

eta: I have 4/5/6th Am. drills with the BF.
"Okay, you're arrested. What do you do?"
"Keep my mouth shut."
"What if you're 100% sure you can clear it up in under 5 minutes?"
"No. Keep my mouth shut."
"Is there anything you should say?"
"Yes. 'I want to speak to a lawyer.'"
"How about 'Do you think I should speak to a lawyer?'"
"No."
"How about 'Maybe I should speak to a lawyer'?"
"No."
"What do you say?"
"'I want to speak to a lawyer.'"
"What about 'I'm invoking my 5th Amendment rights'?"
"No. 'I want to speak to a lawyer.'"
"Why?"
"Because if I just invoke my right to remain silent, they get to come back and try to talk to me again."
"So what do you have to do?"
"Invoke my right to an attorney."
...
"Can I turn the TV back on?"

***
"When the cop pulls you over and makes you get out of the car, what do you do?"
"Keep my mouth shut."
"If he asks you if he can search the front seat of the car, what do you do?"
"Tell him no."
"Why?"
"Because he can if he wants to--he doesn't need my permission."
"If he asks you if he can search the trunk of the car, what do you do?"
"Tell him no."
"Why?"
"Because he's probably NOT allowed--unless I tell him he can."
"What if you're sure there's nothing in the trunk?"
"Still, tell him no."
"Why?"
"Because if you give an inch, they take a mile."
"Do you ever consent to any search by any police officer ever, under any circumstances?"
"No."
"Why not?"
"If I did it, I don't want them to search it. If I consent, they get to search. If I don't consent, they might not search. Those are better odds. Even if I make them suspicious, they would be even more suspicious once they actually found something after I consented to a search. This way they need something more and I have more time. If I didn't do it, I don't want my privacy to be invaded or for there to be a possibility that there are things going on I didn't anticipate. If I consent, they get to search."
"So?"
"Always make a cop search anything over your express denial of permission. A good thing to say is, 'I do not consent! I do not consent!' If they can hear you as your mouth is pressed up against the driver's side door."
"Good job."
"Can I get back onto the road now?"
"Yes. Thanks."
...
...
...
"It's IMPORTANT TO PRACTICE."
...
"You'll thank me later when you don't go to JAIL."
"I'm sure."
...
...
"Hmph."
"Hmph yourself, nutcase."

Lol, I just made the bf do this.  When he claimed that it wasn't relevant, I reminded him that he's a black man in America.  He reluctantly consented.   :D :-\

I'm totally telling my kids about that!

Also, who remembers this show?!

Ooh, me. The doctor was way hotter than the reverend/teacher/weenie man. And everyone had trachoma in their eyes so I looked it up in the Mayo Clinic Book (I was a weird kid) and was thoroughly grossed out.

Totally!

Also, I looked *&^% up in the Mayo Clinic Book all.the.time.

I would sometimes make up weird symptoms and then see if it turned out to be a disease.

Me three.  Any time I had the slightest symptom I'd look it up to imagine the macabre possibilities.  Or I'd just read it for fun.  I think the book is still at home somewhere.

Okay but also, the new ones are really pretty.

I AM BAD AT FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY.

Me too, at least right now, despite academic/career background.

And experience?  Really?  Is that the standard you want to use?  I'll bite.  I have worked in my chosen legal field for about a decade; I have second-seated two felony trials; I have written and argued motions in dozens of misdemeanor cases; I have written portions of capital habeas petitions; and I have finished over 90% of my law school education.  Stop telling me that I don't know how hard law school is going to be or that I don't know how to think like a lawyer.  What do you know?  You read some books about law school admissions?  You got admitted to law school?  You took a law school class?  You know some people who got into different law schools?  Well me too, son, me too.
This made me smile widely and chuckle.
