How to Talk to the Police
by Prof. James Duane
Citizenship Training: Do Not Talk to the Cops.
Whatever you are doing, it’s probably not as important as watching this video, where Professor James Duane of Regent University in Virginia explains why you must never, ever, respond to police questioning. No matter how honest you are, no matter how innocent you are, no matter how smart or well trained you are, do not talk to the cops. Ever.
He is followed by Officer George Bruch, who explains how the police conduct interviews (”interviews”, mind, not “interrogations”) and why they so often result in convictions.
Yeah, it’s 48 minutes long. It’s worth it. How much is it worth? At the very least, whatever your lawyer would charge to talk to you for 48 minutes, likely hundreds of dollars. Possibly, it is worth many more hours of your lawyer’s time, time in court, your reputation, your freedom.
