Why You Should Never Talk to Police

Posted on 07/07/2009 10:04:31 PM PDT by DaveLoneRanger

There are two video lectures on YouTube a friend recently shared with me about when it comes to talking to the police. Even if you, like me, never expect to encounter police officers in a hostile situation, these are important videos to watch. This is especially true when it comes to law-abiding citizens who carry concealed or open weapons in self-defense.

Don't Talk to Cops, Part 1

Don't Talk to Cops, Part 2

This is not anti-police at all, but it is vital information for dealing with them.

This is for everyone on the armed citizen list. I highly recommend finding the time to watch these two videos...imperative information for armed citizens.

Seen it, didn’t follow it, paid for it.

EVERYONE must see this video. Watch it, learn it, live it.

Never never never talk to the police. Even if you’re the one that called them just say “I got you here, you figure it out”.

Glad to see you too. I still post armed citizen stories on the blog, don’t have as much time to post them on here anymore, but someone (often marktwain) takes care of that and then I ping. I guess one of these days I’ll have to bequeath that list, but it will be a while.

I know it goes against everything you believe, but this is RIGHT. Don’t ever talk to police when you are the object or possible object of the investigation. I personally have broken that advice several times because as an ex-attorney I know how to do it and I still suffer for it any time I have done it.

"Everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law."

Be respectful of the police they have a tough job and 99.9% are fine citizens and professional officers of the law. But, remember, they are the chief witness for the state in any criminal prosecution and they are trained to get you to say things that will incriminate you. That's their job. So... stay out of trouble. But, when stopped or arrested or accused, get yourself a good criminal lawyer before making any statements... Nothing new here.

I understand your feelings. But.. the Thin Blue Line is all that separates us from the madness of those who want to kill us because we are productive citizens and pay taxes and give the government its AAA credit rating. Don’t alienate the police. But, if accused, call your lawyer before you say a word...

...government by lawyers and nothing but liberaltarian lawyers’ political parties. If you can’t afford an attorney, a public attorney will walk by your cell and tell you how much time you’re going to get. ...any of you seen the movie, “Sin City?” Exaggerated/cartoon-like parts aside, some jurisdictions are really that filthy. That’s why I quit that line of work for good after the Academy and a few months of patrolling, often without backup (especially weekend overnights), then moved.

...good advice in the videos for those of us who can afford to take advantage of it.

See comment #34, sweetie. A few favored constituents are sponsoring cesspools--not because they're all evil, but because they're out of touch. I'm a moral conservative and don't care for oligarchies/plutocracies.

Dang. Looks like I am the rube on this thread. I agree with this mans advice. Sounds very practical. However, I did not use it, was a suspect in a shooting, talked to the police, and was never charged. Just testified at the trial for about 30 minutes. However, I did not know I was a suspect until a couple of months after initially talking to the police. FWIW.

I had an ex-cop tell me once that, rather than getting good treatment from other police after he quit, he actually got more attitude for being an ex-cop. He said it was like they thought you had betrayed the brotherhood or something. Have you experienced anything like that?

Okay, honest question... I’m just about through with the first video and I’m wondering what the difference between this and the “Don’t snitch” code. According to Mr. Duane, no matter what you say, it can and will probably be used in some way against you if there’s any leverage point so don’t say anything. Doesn’t that equate to don’t snitch?

Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

“Don’t Snitch” means don’t tell the police about the activities of others or yourself - but you can talk to them about any other matter you wish.

This, which is much smarter, says that the only thing you should say to the police is “I want my lawyer” even if you are not a suspect or person of interest - unless you are giving a witness statement.

No, it isn’t. I am reasonably well armed. I carry a gun because I can’t carry a cop. When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. Etc.

“Don’t Talk to Cops” is about not saying what you know about what you were involved in.

“Don’t Snitch” is all about not saying what you know about what others were involved in; “others” usually being gangsta wannabes, drug runners, small-time thieves, vandals, illegal aliens, and the like.

Highly recommend “not talking to the cops if ever you’re personally involved in an “incident.”

Highly recommend snitching anytime it’ll actually help get the scum off the streets.
