Self Defense I (non-deadly force)

In Oklahoma, generally speaking, if you are being assaulted by another then you have the right to defend yourself.  There are a couple of Oklahoma statutes that authorize such defense; one applies to using non-deadly force in defense of yourself and the other applies to using deadly force.  Today I'm going to talk about using non-deadly force and how it applies to defending yourself against an accusation that you've committed a crime.

Conversations with the Police When You are Not Under Arrest (Consensual Contact)

So what happens when a police officer approaches you?  Well, sometimes they aren't interested in you and pass on by, a greeting might be nice and all that is called for.  But, I would guess that most of the time if the police officer is approaching you they have a reason for it.  I mean, if I were a cop, I probably wouldn't ever interact with anybody without a reason given that I have to force interactions with people constantly as part of the job.  I'm sure Officer Friendly exists out there somewhere, but I wouldn't count on him being the guy who approaches me for no other obvious reason.

Are You Accused of Bringing Contraband into a Jail or Penal Institution

It is illegal for anybody to bring certain forms of contraband into a jail or prison in Oklahoma.

57 O.S. §21 Provides that persons bringing guns, knives, bombs, or any dangerous instrument, any controlled dangerous substance, any intoxicating beverage or low-point beer, money or financial instruments for anyone other than the inmate or their spouse (including tax returns!) is guilty of a felony and subject to a penalty of from 1 to 5 years in prison.

No!

“No”

These are my personal thoughts on the word no.

It’s a short word, among the shortest, but in my opinion, the word no is the basis of American society and has been since the beginning.  All of your political rights are founded on the right to tell the government no.  

Don’t like the current government?  Say no and vote for someone else.  

Don’t want the police to search your home without a warrant?  Say no; make them get a warrant supported by probable cause.
