no, really - DON'T TALK TO THE POLICE.
An law school professor and former criminal defense attorney tells you
why you should never agree to be interviewed by the police.
This is long (by internet standards), but you really need to see it. Besides, this professor talks so fast (really, really fast) the time will just whiz by. I known this for most of my life since in a previous incarnation I was going to be a police officer.
I like to watch Dateline and 48 Hours Mystery. In almost all cases someone is convicted due to their own big mouths.
One of the biggest mistakes George Zimmerman made was talking to the police. They were not on his side.
