Don’t Talk to Cops

I recommend that everyone watch these two videos.  The first video is from a defense attorney/law professor at Regent University.  The second video is the “rebuttal” from a police officer.

What’s really interesting is that the defense attorney/law professor and the police officer both agree completelyWhether you are guilty or innocent, you should not ever talk to police officers about a criminal case without consulting with an attorney.

The Law Professor –

The Police Officer –

Please note that the Police Officer admits that he is allowed to lie to you about whether or not he has any evidence against you.

Jesus Christ took the “don’t talk to cops” approach on occasion (text from Bible in Basic English translation):

Luke 23:8-9

8 Now when Herod saw Jesus he was very glad, having for a long time had a desire to see him, for he had had accounts of him, and was hoping to see some wonders done by him. 9 And he put a great number of questions to him, but he said nothing.

Mark 14: 60-61

60 And the high priest got up in the middle of them, and said to Jesus, Do you say nothing in answer? what is it which these say against you? 61 But he kept quiet and said nothing.

Mark 15:2-5

2 And Pilate put a question to him, Are you the King of the Jews? And he, answering, said to him, You say so. 3 And the chief priests said a number of things against him. 4 And Pilate again put a question, Do you say nothing in answer? see how much evil they say you have done. 5 But Jesus gave no more answers, so that Pilate was full of wonder.

John 19:8-9

8 When this saying came to Pilate’s ears his fear became greater; 9 And he went again into the Praetorium and said to Jesus, Where do you come from? But Jesus gave him no answer.

Matthew 27:11-14

11 And Jesus was before the ruler, who put a question to him, Are you the King of the Jews? And Jesus said to him, You say so. 12 But when the chief priests and those in authority made statements against him, he gave no answer. 13 Then says Pilate to him, Do you give no attention to what their witnesses say against you? 14 And he gave him no answer, not even a word: so that the ruler was greatly surprised.
