Never Talk to the Police

What’s the best response when a cop asks you something?

Silence, or a short, polite non-answer.

Shut up. Just. Shut. Up. The police are not your friends. They are not there to protect you. They are there to arrest you, convict you, and take your money or your freedom or both.

You should be polite and calm whenever dealing with any armed person.  It’s even more important when that person knows they can shoot you without any serious consequences. But don’t say any more than you have to.

These videos made the rounds about a year ago. If you haven’t seen them, watch them now. If you have seen them, watch them again. Don’t let the length put you off; the information could make a difference between jail and freedom.

In the first part of the first video a fast talking law professor gives you detailed reasons why you should never talk to the police.

This is part two, where a former police officer fills in the details.

Here are some practical examples of how to legally preserve your rights in an encounter with police:

Ok, after all that heavy duty stuff, we need a breather. Here’s some good NSFW advice from Chris Rock’s “How Not to Get Your Ass Kicked By The Police.”

  3. Oh my god, what a bunch of paranoid bullshit. If you are not breaking the law, you have nothing to worry about.

    The LAPD literally burned a suspect to death intentionally. If that doesn’t call for a Dave Hitt post, I don’t know what does.

  5. Police are not there to nor are they required to protect the citizenry as you call them. Police are there to enforce laws and to put people behind bars. A defense attorney is not going to defend you, he is there to see that your Rights are adhered to. If you talked to police then you have given up a Right. You cannot be protected since you talked and since you talked your attorney has little to do to help you. The officer that arrested you will help you right? He said he would go easy on you if you would tell him the truth so you did. He is not going easy on you. The judge is the guy who is going to sentence you. The cop? He lied. He can do that. You can’t. You had a good defense in The Bill of Rights but you did not know that that was your first and best chance at freedom because you are an idiot, not really but you feel like one when you are escorted away handcuffed to another idiot in a line of idiots. First rule in prison? STFU!
