Don´t talk to cops!

hello ATS.

come across a rather interesting video tonight.
it´s about cops, how they operate, how they get you and what you can do to prevent sticky situations.

the vid i´m talking about is the following, it's part two wich i found the most interesting.
yes it is quite lenghty but i'm sure it's worth your time!

here's part one:
part 1

i thought everybody should know their rights in these times where it seems everything is turning into a police-state rather quickly.

some other helpfull tips:

In the first place, when the law enforcement authorities come to see you, there are no "simple questions." Unless they are investigating a traffic accident, you can be sure that they want information about somebody. And that somebody may be you!

remember when confronted by the authorities is that there is no law require you to talk with the police, the FBI, or the representative of any other investigative agency. Even the simplest questions may be loaded and the seemingly harmless bits of information which you volunteer may later become vital links in a chain of circumstantial evidence against you or a friend.

Do not invite the investigator into your home! Such an invitation not only gives him the opportunity to look around for clues to your lifestyle, friends, reading material, etc., but also tends to prolong the conversation. And the longer the conversation, the more chance there is for a skilled investigator to find out what he wants to know.

Many times a police officer will ask you to accompany him to the police station to answer a few questions. In that case, simply thank him for the invitation and indicate that you are not disposed to accept it at that time. Often the authorities simply want to photograph a person for identification purposes, a procedure which is easily accomplished by placing him in a private room with a two-way mirror at the station, asking him a few innocent questions, and then releasing him.

If the investigator becomes angry at your failure to cooperate and threatens you with arrest, stand firm. He cannot legally place you under arrest or enter your home without a warrant signed by a judge. If he indicates that he has such a warrant, ask to see it. A person under arrest or located on premises to be searched, generally must be shown a warrant if he requests it and must be given a chance to read it.

Without a warrant, an officer depends solely upon your helpfulness to obtain the information he wants. So, unless you are quite sure of yourself, don't be helpful.

robably the wisest approach to take to a persistent investigator is simply to say: "I'm quite busy now. If you have any questions that you feel I can answer, I'd be happy to listen to them in my lawyer's office. Goodbye!" Talk is cheap. But when that talk involves the law enforcement authorities, it may cost you, or someone close to you, dearly.


and last but not least i want to direct you guys to a thread from a fellow ATS member called; seeashrink.

he wrote and awesome thread with vital information, wich can be found here:
dealing with cops, understanding your rights... by a cop

it's worth the read and make sure you'll reward him!

I can't believe this has never been posted to ATS before. This is one of my husband's most favorite videos.

If you ever watch one of those shows like "The First 48", you'll see OVER and OVER young ignorant fools just giving it away. If they knew their rights even a little bit they would have a much better outcome.

It has been, but it's still valuable information.

Off the record---- it's like a unicorn, it doesnt exist

He then goes on the describe how its obviously not a level playing field. This guy sounds like hes working security at a casino- all this trickery seems sort of un-just.

Knowing your rights is evidence of commission of a crime:

Police allege that water pipes and other tobacco accessories sold at the stores were intended for illegal use, and their evidence includes the fact that Capitol Hemp sold Flex Your Rights DVDs!
link 2 with warrant

The DVD in question is a product of the ACLU that's about the Bill of Rights. Knowing the Bill of Rights equates to deceiving police and committing criminal acts according to the warrant issued for the raid.

Good stuff.

Here in the UK, I dont know if anyone has mentioned it yet, but if a police officer asks you for your name, address or details, you are NOT obliged to give them anything.

ASK THEM, am I obliged, they will most likely reply with something along the lines of "would you like to give us your details", not actually telling you that you are or are not obliged.

I repeat, at this point you still do NOT have to give any details, only if you wish to do so.

On the rare occasion that they tell you "yes you're obliged" then you do have to, but then and only then.

Sorry to get a bit long winded but its just one of the many other tricks that police officers use here.

Always remain calm, give them no reason to get mad, and remember it is your personal choice until you are OBLIGED, just remember that one word.

Don't know if you watched the video but make sure you do, the cop exposes a lot of ways cops 'fish' for information.

harrassing them or swearing at them, if you had already done something then you have no choice i meant if you were being unfairly treated or arrested.
