An urgent, compact manifesto that will teach you how to protect your rights, your freedom, and your future when talking to police.
Law professor James J. Duane became a viral sensation thanks to a 2008 lecture outlining the reasons why you should never agree to answer questions from the police—especially if you are innocent and wish to stay out of trouble with the law. In this timely, relevant, and pragmatic new book, he expands on that presentation, offering a vigorous defense of every citizen’s constitutionally protected right to avoid self-incrimination. Getting a lawyer is not only the best policy, Professor Duane argues, it’s also the advice law-enforcement professionals give their own kids.
Using actual case histories of innocent men and women exonerated after decades in prison because of information they voluntarily gave to police, Professor Duane demonstrates the critical importance of a constitutional right not well or widely understood by the average American. Reflecting the most recent attitudes of the Supreme Court, Professor Duane argues that it is now even easier for police to use your own words against you. This lively and informative guide explains what everyone needs to know to protect themselves and those they love.
This essential “how not to” guide explains how to act and what to say in the presence of police to minimize the chances of being arrested and to avoid add-on charges—which can often lead to permanent disqualification from jobs, financing, and education. Citizens can learn how to avoid arrest both on the street and when pulled over in a vehicle and are alerted to basic tricks cops use to get people to incriminate themselves. Sprinkled with absurdity and humor, this urgent, eye-opening book is a guide to criminal justice for all Americans.
Arrest-Proof Yourself Second Edition
What do you say if a cop pulls you over and asks to search your car? What if he gets up in your face and uses a racial slur? What if there’s a roach in the ashtray? And what if your hot-headed teenage son is at the wheel? If you read this book, you’ll know exactly what to do and say.
More people than ever are getting arrested—usually for petty offenses against laws that rarely used to be enforced. And because arrest information is so easily available via the Internet, just one little arrest can disqualify you from jobs, financing, and education.
This eye-opening book tells you everything you need to know about how cops operate, the little things that can get you in trouble, and how to stay free from the hungry jaws of the criminal justice system. It is now updated with new and important information on the right of the police to search your car; on guns, knives, and self-defense; and on changes in surveillance methods.

As a retired CPA and CFE, and a former IRS Agent I have seen thousands of financial disasters occur at the hands of IRS auditors. This book is for individuals and small business owners that want to keep what they earn, protect it and assert their rights against an agency that has been blatantly violating the rights of Americans the world over as of late. It is full of information and strategies that will help you hold your ground and know what to do and what not to do when you are selected for an audit. How do I know it works? I have been behind the scenes. For over seven years I was an IRS agent auditing individuals, pastors and business owners just like you. I quit the agency and was determined to share methods to combat the abuse that goes on during audits and examinations of you and your businesses. For several years I have been helping individuals, small business owners and churches maintain proper books and records and avoid having to pay additional taxes due to sloppy bookkeeping or improper disclosure of information to the auditors. Following the principles and strategies that I share in this book will help you fully prepare for an audit and be able to get the auditor out of your business quickly. Also, using the strategies revealed in this book will hopefully help you avoid additional taxes or even obtain a refund! I also share actual stories about audits that I experienced and how they were handled in my favor or in the business owner's favor so you can get a feel of how things really operate behind the scenes of that much-reviled agency. In addition, I show you how to use a home-based business to create an additional income stream while sticking it to the IRS at the same time! I believe that it is my calling to help you keep what you earn, protect it and make it grow so that you can be stress and worry free, and live the life that you were created to live. Learn the truth about the IRS so that you and your business can thrive!
