    You’ve Just Been Arrested. Now What? | The Free Thought Project

    By: The Festival Lawyer, October 3, 2014



    The most important thing I can tell you about what to do after being arrested is: Do not talk to the police or give a statement about your case. Ever. If you’ve been arrested, any officer interviewing you has already decided you are guilty and is talking to you for one reason: to get you to confess.

    Police are allowed to lie and to trick you to get a confession. For example, a cop might suggest a set of innocent-sounding facts to see if you will agree to them: “Hey buddy, I know you weren’t selling drugs, I just think you gave some to a friend who kept bugging you for them, right?” This might not sound that bad, but in a lot of states, if you say yes, you’ve just admitted to a much more serious crime than simple possession.

    Even if a police officer just wants to hear your side of things, there’s a real risk that something you say could be taken out of context or be misunderstood.

    This has been posted on WWP before but deserves reposting for those that haven't seen it before. A law professor and an ex-police officer explain why you should not talk to police. It's very funny too.

    Posting fail on my tablet.

    Or just keep shouting "Fuck the police!" until they are fucked the shit out of.
