If your are accused of a crime, do not speak to Law Enforcement without the presence of a lawyer. In most cases, if Law Enforcement Officer(s) is asking you questions related to a crime, it is because you are a suspect. YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY SHUT UP AND ONLY SPEAK TO REQUEST A LAWYER. Pursuant to the fifth amendment you have the right to remain silent and to not incriminate yourself. Pursuant to the sixth amendment you have the right to counsel. Pursuant to the 4th amendment, if Law Enforcement Officer(s) is seeking consent to search your vehicle or home, your are NOT obligated to give consent, unless they have a warrant signed by a Judge in most cases. YOU HAVE RIGHTS.
In this day of social media videos highlighting police aggression, always remember to be respectful to Law Enforcement Officials. Also remember, the place to enforce your rights is in the courtroom, not on the street.
