I was creating an informational pamphlet and I thought that I would share these nuggets of wisdom:
1. SAY NO.
Police will always try to get you to consent to things like searches and interrogations because you voluntarily give up your rights. Protect your rights. Just SAY NO. Other than that . . .
2. SHUT UP.
Talking to the police is rarely a good idea. Nothing you say is going to help. Just shut up. Except to . . .
3. GET A LAWYER.
If you say anything other than “NO” to the police, it should probably be “I WANT A LAWYER” and that’s it.
Disclaimer: This is not legal advice. Those are your rights. Do with them as you will.
