TALKING TO POLICE
You should never, never, never talk to police about your case unless your attorney is present. That's not because the police are dishonest, deceitful, untrustworthy, unintelligent, corrupt, despicable, and narrow minded, although some of them are. It's because your words can be twisted and used against you by the police and by the prosecution.
If ever you are stopped by the police, first ask if you are being arrested. If you are not being arrested, you are free to walk away. No one who is not under arrest is obligated to talk to the police.
If you ever are arrested, immediately tell the police that you will not talk with them without your attorney. If you do not have an attorney, tell the police that you expect to hire an attorney or you expect that the court will assign a public defender or court appointed attorney to you and you know that your attorney will be angry with you if you talk with the police.
Always, be polite and respectful with police officers. Never, never, never threaten them or yell at them or act as if you have a weapon of any kind.
