When dealing with the police, keep your hands in view and don’t make sudden movements.
Avoid passing behind them. Nervous cops are dangerous cops.
Also, never touch the police or their equipment, you can get beat up and charged with assault.
These are just a few tips, but there’s more.
Here are some lies they will tell you:
“You’re not a suspect – just help us understand what happened here and then you can go.”
“If you don’t answer my questions, I’ll have no choice but to arrest you. Do you want to go to jail?”
“If you don’t answer my questions, I’m going to charge you with resisting arrest.”
“All of your friends have cooperated and we let them go home. You’re the only one left.”
The cops will tell you that they have all the evidence they need to convict you and that if you “take responsibility” and confess the judge will be impressed by your honesty and go easy on you.
What they really mean is: “we don’t have enough evidence yet, please confess.”
