Was around at the time. Local exchange student rep said "if someone tells you to 'freeze,' please please stand still."

'68 I was in Houston. A long-haired BBC cameraman. Friend from LA  told me that if the cops pull you over, don't try the immediately-out-of-the-car, claim the neutral space - "Officer, is this really necessary? gambit."

"Keep your frickin' hands on the wheel, do not turn your head, do not speak unless spoken to, and follow orders immediately." It was excellent advice.

Newborn babies, the elderly and the infirm are believed to comprise the non-feared 2 percent.


But watch out for those two-year olds ! - in a house where even the mother has assault weapons.

And the elderly need to be really old - those old varmits can still pull a trigger :-)


But there remains a group of elderly inmates who committed violent crimes during their golden years, proving the point that many victims worry about.

Research has shown that arrests of elderly offenders have risen.

That's pretty good advice if stopped in any State in the USA.

Very good advice if you're stopped by Swedish police as well.
