Commentary: Don’t get ‘busted’ without knowing your rights

go to link Whether or not students break the law, it is possible that they have been involved in a police encounter once or twice. Of all the things Northeastern students may be educated on, how to take advantage of their constitutional rights during a brush with the police may not be one of them. During most police encounters, the officers hold an overwhelming amount of power and advantage.
