Rap 420: Know your rights

2009 Rainbow Guide
This rap sheet has been prepared to help you stay out of jail. In the past, rainbow gatherings have been the target of unjustified police influence and harassment, often
illegal. Many of the brothers and sisters that have been arrested in the past could have completely avoided wasted jail time and expensive court dates if they had just
known a few of their basic rights. This rap sheet is a tool. Read and understand it and next time YOU will have the upper hand in the situation.

ROADBLOCKS (DUI CHECKPOINTS, ETC.)

When heading to a gathering, ALWAYS assume you will run into a roadblock on the way in. It is very important that you know your rights before reaching the
roadblock because this is where most of the coercive tactics and encroachments of rights will take place. Law enforcement officers are trained to intimidate people into
consenting to searches. You may be asked SEVERAL times during the detention if they can search your car or person. ALWAYS refuse and you'll be fine. The only
legal reason they have to search you without arrest is that they feel they are in danger of being attacked, which should not be an issue with rainbows.

If you do find yourself under arrest for any reason, always exercise your right to silence. Continue to refuse to allow any searches and politely inform them that you will
not say anything until your attorney is present.A. Your driver's license, registration and proof of insurance should be legal and accessible. You will sometimes need all
three as the requirement laws vary from state to state. Always assume that you need all three and you'll never have a problem.

B. Your car must be road-legal. No broken tail-lights, windshields, headlights, etc. You will be cited for these.

C. Never leave anything in "plain view". Anything inside the car that is visible to the officer is considered to be in "plain view" Although this does not give them the right
to search your car, they can confiscate the item and place you under arrest. They will still need to obtain a warrant to search the rest of your car which will not be very
hard if they found something in plain view.

D. Never consent to a search of your body or your vehicle. This is your fourth amendment. The only reason they would ask is that they do not have enough evidence
to obtain a search warrant (or they may just be too lazy to get one). JUST SAY NO!!

At rainbow gatherings in the past, officers have been known to plant drugs in cars after consent to search is given. You can avoid this problem by refusing to consent.

E. If you are harassed or mistreated, write down all the information you can about the incident. The officer's county, name, rank, badge number, etc. Date, time of day,
location, etc. Contact one of the organizations listed at the end of this document to pursue the matter or just file a complaint with that officer's superior.

OTHER POLICE CONTACT

It is important to remember a few things about police officers. One is that they are aware of your rights and they have been known to intentionally violate them. If you
find yourself in a situation with an officer who is out of control, it is best to be submissive in order to avoid injury or even death. Remember that THEY are ARMED
AND DANGEROUS! If you are stopped by an officer outside of a vehicle, your contact with him/her will fall into three categories. Consensual contact, detention or
arrest. We are mainly concerned with consensual contact and detention as this document is intended to help you in NOT GETTING ARRESTED.

CONSENSUAL CONTACT

Consensual contact means the officer comes up to you and says, "Can I speak with you?" If you say "yes", you have consented to have contact with the police. This is
not good. When you consent to contact, you waive some of your rights especially if you think you may be guilty of something. NEVER consent to speak with an
officer. If the officer asks, "Can I talk to you?", reply with something like "I'm sorry, I'm in a hurry and don't have time to talk to you right now." If he/she insists, ask,
"Are you detaining me? Am I free to leave?" You should ask this several times to make sure the officer will remember you asking if the encounter results in an arrest
and court case. If it is really a consensual contact, the officer is required to let you go on your way if you ask to. If you don't verbally ask to leave, the court will
presume you consented to whatever follows.

DETENTION

The police are only allowed to detain citizens when there are "Specific and Articulate able Facts supporting suspicion" (SAF) that you are involved in criminal activity.
This means they can't detain you on a "hunch." They must have observed something about your behavior or character that links you with specific criminal activity. If
you are detained without SAF, you are detained illegally. If this matter ever lands in court, you may be able to get off because the original detention on their part was
illegal. When you use terms like "detention" and "specific and articulable facts", the officer will usually back down a bit. The majority of a police officer's power in the
united states comes from intimidation and prey on the public's ignorance of its own rights. It is crucial that you let the officer know that you are not consenting to talk
with him and that the only way you will talk to him is if he detains you which he can not do without SAF.

ARREST

If you find yourself under arrest, there's not much left you can do. You are going to be searched. It is important to continue refusing consent to search your vehicle (if
there is one involved) as they will still need a search warrant to search your vehicle. This, however, will not be difficult to obtain now that you are under arrest.

By refusing to consent to a search of your vehicle, though, you are maintaining your position. They may get impatient and search the vehicle without a warrant which
is completely illegal. If this happens, anything they find in the vehicle will not be accepted by the court because it was evidence obtained illegally.

Those are the basics rights you have when involved with the police. By exercising these rights and using a little common sense, you should be able to have a safe and
happy gathering. Below are some legal contacts you may find yourself in need of if placed under arrest. Love your brothers & sisters with guns even when
they are misguided.

Welcome Home to the 2009 Rainbow Gathering! I hope everyone arrived in Cuba, New Mexico safely and without incident. Last year
we raised $565 in the Magic Hat and $85 in donations were sent in. The total cost of printing has yet to be finalized; it is sufficient to say,
it is more than was raised. I printed as many copies as I could; I will reprint more copies when it is possible. All of you who have written
letters or sent donations to the guide; thank you. I will answer them and send a copy of the new guide after this year’s gathering. Thanks
to everyone who forged that way before me with pervious guides. I truly appreciate all of your efforts. If the spirit is willing, I will see you in
New Mexico. If I missed anyone’s submission, or messed up your information…my apologizes.
Peace and Love brothers and sisters!!!

Site Criteria Region XVIII (Behind the Walls) Your inner child is speaking.
It's rare for a site to have everything good in abundance, but it is essential that every site have: Watson Namoki
Safe Drinking Water. This is numero uno. Deep springs or well protected surface water. There should be an ample flow rate to
ADC# 154086
meet the drinking, cooking and washing needs for all who might gather. Figure a minimum of one gallon of water per day per
Arizona State Prison
person. Springs should be a distance upstream from camping areas, marked & guarded to prevent contamination.
Open Meadows for Counsels, workshops, pageants, etc. Meadows should be kept clear of tents/camps. PO Box 18640
Firewood: A good supply of dead wood lying on the ground for fires is needed. Phoenix AZ 85005-8640
Parking: A large enough area for expected cars, vans and live-in vehicles to park safely is necessary. Parking areas should be
close yet clearly separate from the Gathering proper. You don't want easy access for car stereos, beer coolers and a rowdy
party scene. Alternative parking should be arranged for the physically challenged. Only emergency and supply vehicles should
be allowed direct access to the actual Gathering site.
Access Roads: There should be one main road for access to the Gathering which is not a dead end that empties near the Main
Gate. It is important to have a "back door" available for emergencies and heavy supplies.

Seed Camp
At least a week before the Gathering is scheduled to start, a group of people arrive to find and develop water systems, set up
the first kitchen & a health care system, and dig the first latrines. Seed camp folks design the layout of the actual Gathering by

Who’s Job is It?
Once upon a time, there were four people.

Their names were Everybody, Somebody, Nobody and Anybody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it.

Everybody was sure Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

The Rainbow Path to Responsible Parenting When Nobody did it, Somebody got mad because it was Everybody’s job.

(or The Rainbow Path to Child Safety) Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

Welcome to the Gathering! This is a wonderful space to be in. It feels very free and Ended up Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have in the first place.
safe. We want to maintain that feeling, yet at the same time it is necessary to be sensible in
order to keep our children safe and healthy. The moral of this story is that when you find yourself Saying…
As times change, society in general has developed more problems and illnesses. Some of
these, unfortunately, can carry over into our safe haven here. To ignore these problems is not
sensible. They do exist, therefore we as a family must take measures to prevent them. “Somebody should pick up the trash on the trail / make a
Here are some helpful ideas that work, and we strongly suggest you take them to heart for
the sake of all our precious children:
1) Please keep track of your children. Know where they are and when they should be back sign to mark a kitchen / organize the parking lot / dig a
to your camp sites or meet you.
2) If someone else is caring for your children please make sure you !really know! who
that person is and that you have spent time with that person. Sometimes, unfortunately,
new shitter . . .”
those persons who would harm our children have a facade that “feels OK” and a very
trusting pleasant personality. This is not to say don’t trust your feelings or other people, Remember: YOU are Somebody ! ! !
please, just take some time and extra care -- our children deserve it.
3) Don’t just drop your kids off at Kid Village and leave. Become part of the scene. Get to
know the other parents. If someone agrees to watch your children while you go off and Isn’t that what you’ve always wanted to be?
enjoy some personal time, let them know where you are likely to be found, and when you
will return. Make contingency plans in case you are delayed and/or they must leave Kid
Village, so you know where your child will be and who they will be left with.
4) Older children need to know how to find their “home camp” and parents. They also should
be shown safe areas (Kid Village, Info Centers, kitchens,) to go to if they are in trouble,
lost, or hurt. They should know how to describe you and your camp area verbally. For
younger children who cannot talk well and might wander off, use tags -- pin a piece of
paper to their backs (so they can‚t pull it off) with their name, your name, and directions
to your camp. Use safety pins or tape.
5) If your child gets separated from you or lost, please don’t wait long to act. If after a
search for your child in the immediate area they are still lost, immediately find a person
with a radio and tell them your child is missing and you need help. This needs to happen
quickly so we can do the best job, especially if it is close to nightfall. Better safe than
sorry.
We are all responsible for our children. If you notice anything that looks or feels “not quite
right” or a child that looks distressed or frightened, please don’t look the other way. It’s better to
check it out than to let a tragedy occur.
As parents, please keep in mind that if someone cares enough to interfere and asks questions
about your child or your parenting that it is coming from the heart and is meant in the interest of
all our children’s best welfare.

Please try to be understanding.
