dealing with cops
I keep seeing these posts about dealing with police pop up and I’d like to sum them up to the most important thing:
DO NOT TALK.
Police are allowed to lie in order to get a statement from you.
If they say “it’ll be easier if you cooperate”? It won’t. There are no disadvantages to not making a statement.
If they ask “do you know why I stopped you?” do not answer. They’re trying to make you admit something they have no proof for or they don’t even know themselves.
If they say “just give us a quick statement and you can go” do not say anything. don’t try to justify yourself. it’ll just fall back on other people.
No matter what they tell you
Don’t talk to police.
