THREE TIPS ON TALKING TO COPS
In addition to the three previous tips we provided in Tips To Talk To Cops – Part One, we compiled three more tips on how to properly talk to cops. It can be scary speaking to the police and trying to figure a way out of your current situation, but by following these tips you’ll be able to stay on the right side of the law.
TIP FOUR: ASK FOR A LAWYER
When you’re being arrested, the first thing a police officer needs to tell you are your Miranda Rights. If you’re an avid crime show watcher, then you are probably familiar with the Miranda Rights. Basically the Miranda Rights detail that, “whatever you say can be held against you in a court of law and you have the ability to ask for a lawyer. If you can’t afford one, a lawyer will be provided for you.” If a police officer doesn’t read you your rights, then he or she may risk losing the ability to use any of the information you provide in a courtroom. If you’ve committed a crime or you find yourself being arrested the best decision you can make is to call a lawyer, even if it’s a Defense Attorney granted to you, all you need to do is ask for a lawyer. When you ask for a lawyer you’re exercising your rights as an American.
TIP FIVE: ALWAYS LISTEN
If you find yourself in a quandary and get arrested, the best decision you can do is listen. Listen to what the officer says to you, listen to if they read you your rights, and listen to why they are arresting you. When you listen you can figure out if something isn’t right about the situation and you’re also able to limit the amount of talking you do. When you listen you can catch on if a mistake was made. In addition, when you listen you can use the police officer’s words to figure out whether what they are doing is legal or not.
TIP SIX: STAY ON YOUR TOES
In addition to listening to the police, stay on your toes. If you didn’t commit a crime and you’re being arrested or you did commit a crime, it’s best if you stay on your toes and don’t trust anyone. You don’t want to spill everything that happened without a lawyer and get yourself in deeper trouble. Cops have a tendency to play good cop and bad cop, so the best decision you can make is to trust your instincts and be wary of anyone who might make you suspicious.
