Busted Review

This movie feels like something you would be forced to watch in an educational setting. But, in saying this, it really is an educational tool that could save your ass.

The movie is broken down into three major sections. Getting pulled over, waiting for a bus, and having the cops bust a house party. I don't know about you, but everyone I know has been in at least one of these scenarios as least once.

The movie focuses on the most important of the Bill of Rights: 4th, 5th and 6th Amendments. If you aren't aware of what these are:
4th-the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated.
5th-No person shall be...compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law...
6th-In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to...have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

If you aren't interested in this type of film, just learn the above three amendments, and you should be ok. However, if you decide to watch the film, you may actually learn something that could get you out of a sticky situation, especially if you have anything in your vehicle, or on your person, that may not be legal ;)

With a running time of only 45 minutes, it's definitely worth checking out. I don't know about you, but I would much rather get a ticket than be issued a lovely pair of silver bracelets....
