No video of the incident. While I tend to believe her I have to say that there are often two sides to a story and no one knows the other side. She
can stand there and say anything she likes to a video camera.
Holding silent does not often help your case. Now granted not answering questions without a lawyer is our right. Will it always work out for you?
I recently got out of a ticket for 110mph on my motorcycle at night on a empty road. Did I tell the cop I was not going to answer any questions?
Hell No! I admitted I was screwing around and left it to him to do as he would.
All to often I see "Copwatch" minded folks video tape their traffic stops and they often get belligerent. Cops don't have to give you a ticket
when they pull you over.....
10 stops in a year on my motorcycle. Most every one of which I deserved a ticket. I have gotten one for ten over and it was a speed trap that
everyone got a ticket from, no exceptions.
Be nice to the cops, it goes a long ways these days.....
I have to say I agree with you here. Sure you don't have to speak, but if your innocent, tell them your story. If you start to see they are going to
screw you around and they start making things up, then don't say another word until you speak to an attorney. I give them the benefit of doubt. Maybe
they thought something else was happening that wasn't. I think that if your straight with them they might let it slide and give you a warning instead
of a ticket. I too in my younger years was pulled over a couple of times and should have gotten a ticket, but because I was straight with the officer
and told him why I did what I did, he let me off with a warning. I didn't actually get a ticket until in the U.S. until I was 54.
