Never talk to a cop

No, that’s not what I’m saying, it is what Professor James Duane of the Regent University School of Law is saying. In the following Youtube video, he explains why — in a clear, criminal matter — precisely why you should never, ever, ever talk to the police or any other government agent. Apparently it really doesn’t even matter if you’re guilty or innocent. It also doesn’t seem to matter if you have an alibi or not. According to Professor Duane, it isn’t possible for anything that you say to the police to help you; plus it’s quite possible that some of the innocuous things you say will actually hurt you.

Now the video is 48:39 minutes long, and I know that sounds like quite a lot, but it really is very interesting, and I guarentee that once you start watching it, you will not be able to stop. The interesting thing is, that his talk is followed by a talk from a police detective who basically agrees with what the Professor says. Obviously sound is required.

Not quite Law & Order, eh?
