You see, this is part of the problem: who’s educating you on the correct answer to these simple questions? When you are stopped by a law-enforcement officer your heart is beating so fast, you’re frighten and nervous that you could land in jail and really screw things up for your future.
Welcome to The Knox Project, we look forward to engaging with you at your schools and in your community. If you are every stopped by a law enforcement officer we would love for you to share your experiences – good or bad. We would like to host your experience on our Media Center for others to view.

Constitution of the United States
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
The word incarcerate entered the English language in the sixteenth century, tracing back to the Latin word meaning “imprisoned.” If you incarcerate people, that means you imprison them for a predetermined amount of time in a jail, prison, or a detention center. It’s good to know the meaning of incarcerate, but make sure you never get so close to it that you have firsthand knowledge of the word.
Land on the wrong side of the US Judicial System and it could cost you…dearly!
