Apparently, a Utah man who was attempting to kill a mouse in his apartment chose to do so with a gun (because that apparently made sense to him), only he missed hitting the mouse but wound up successfully shooting one of his three roommates. When the cops showed up they discovered that another of his roommates (a 34-year-old man) was apparently having an on-going relationship with a 13-year-old girl (who was hiding in a closet in the basement), and arrested the guy for child rape. The fourth roommate slept through the whole thing.
Taylorsville Police Sgt. Tracy Wyant told Deseret News that the first roommate, 27, had been trying to kill a rodent when he missed and the round went through the kitchen wall and struck a second roommate, 28. “After the gun was fired, both the roommate and Paul heard a scream,” Wyant explained.
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.
