Defense Attorney Robbin Shipp, co-author of the recently released book, “Justice While Black: Helping African-American Families Navigate and Survive the Criminal Justice System,” joined Roland Martin on “NewsOne Now” to discuss what to do if stopped by the police.
Shipp said that we as African Americans “… often give up our constitutional rights when we’re stopped by the police. We give them the ability to search our vehicle. We tell them information about our whereabouts that we’re not obligated to tell.”
Shipp co-authored the book with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nick Chiles, the New York Times bestselling author who also co-authored Rev. Al Sharpton’s memoir, “The Rejected Stone: Al Sharpton and the Path To American Leadership.”
