We’re big fans of the CBS show 48 Hours around here. We’ll watch nearly every episode. And during every episode, I will find myself screaming at the television “Stop talking to the police, you bleeping idiot!”
Everybody, without exception, who subjects him or herself to an interrogation by the police without a lawyer present will be convicted of whatever crime the police are investigating. No exceptions. I’ll guarantee it.
Here’s a presentation by a law school professor and former criminal defense attorney explaining why you should never, ever talk to the police. Watch it. Take it to heart. I do not care how pure and innocent you may be, do not talk to the police. You have the right to remain silent. Use it!
