Know your rights

Flex Your Rights is making a sequel to Busted, appropriately called Profiled.

Following BUSTED's basic formula, PROFILED will portray similar types of police encounters -- traffic stop, street stop, and home entry -- but will prominently feature black and Latino actors while highlighting the problems of racial profiling and the war on drugs. PROFILED will also pay close attention to showing how people who don't knowingly break any laws can benefit from asserting their constitutional rights.

To ensure that the video speaks with an authentic voice within communities of color, PROFILED will be created by an African-American or Latino director and will feature a prominent African-American or Latino narrator with a legal or law enforcement background.
It's just in the beginning stages and they could use some help, but it sounds like it's going to be another essential resource - particularly for communities of color.
