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.

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.

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.

That is a dangerous assumption.

Your first line of defense is YOU. You should learn how to defend yourself.

The police can find your body, investigate your murder and put yellow tape around the scene. They can't shadow you 24/7 to stop it from happening.

I haven't seen that, but reactions probably vary from one area to another. Television shows lead most people to believe that police are close to each other, like soldiers--that they are somehow pledged to do anything for each other. That's not often true if at all. Each one is on his own, for the most part. There are cliques and rivalries, just as there are in other jobs. ...subgroups. Many of them avoid quick and easy socializing with anyone for obvious reasons. Look at all the addictions, family breakups and other problems around us--problems that we don't get tangled up in.

Most of them are personally cleaner than the average citizen and just don't know what to do about higher level crime. Some of them even admire others who risk their jobs to do something right. There are very few actively bad cops. Some of the cleaner ones wait for an opportunity to catch a bigger crook without losing their jobs, but such opportunities aren't likely to come without a call to feds.

In dirty municipals/counties, look up the ladder, at council/board members, very interested local businesses and sneaky associations with slicker local drug dealers (nightclub hangouts for public officials and business leaders). And there are some politically powerful lobby organizations for municipals (especially state connections).
