Most people don't know their basic constitutional rights, and those who do usually waive them in the face of police intimidation. Worse, police rely on people's fear and ignorance of the law to trick them into waiving their rights, which often lands them in jail. That's why Flex Your Rights (FyR) -- a Washington, DC-based educational group -- created BUSTED: The Citizen's Guide to Surviving Police Encounters. This fun 45-minute educational DVD realistically depicts three common police scenarios -- traffic stop, street stop, and home entry.

It is very good for all people that know their rights and use it carefully. But about this movie I think it is good only for USA. because in some other countries law is different. For example in my country (Iran) when you Stopped by a Police , He can search your Car and even he can search your pockets without any permission from sheriff office. In Iran When you stop by a police, you have to Absolutely cooperate with him and allow the police ask you any question he wants and look in your Car, Pockets , Bags and etc... If Not, You will be arrested. In fact for arresting people they don't need any evidence or identified crime sign.They simply arrest you because you are suspicious in their mind and you are under arrest until you prove that you are insane. But in this movie which is made for Us Citizens you see all people have some rights and can use it against police enforcement and it is nice.
