I am glad that someone posted those videos. I watched them a while back, and they are outstanding. I remember her highness Nancy Grace up on her high horse talking about how she would never refuse to talk to the police if she did nothing wrong and had nothing to hide. She needs to watch those videos. (Actually, she knows better, she just loves to be self righteous and imply that every one who is accused is a degenerate and defense attorneys who advise clients to invoke their rights are "scuzzy.")

You will hear a reference in the first lecture to my niece's case. So my advice to you is this.

First and only words out of your mouth should be I want to speak to my attorney. If I had gotten to her prior she would not be where she is now. But I did not and she is doing life without parole.

After you advise you want an attorney twiddle your thumbs, pick your nose, do what ever you have too to keep from opening your mouth. But the best thing to do is just to sit there and ignore them impassively, do not show emotion, and most of all DO NOT TALK.

I did allot of theatre in High School and College and I had to deal with stage fright. Too keep from getting stage fright we were taught to pick out one individual in the audience and speak to them, not to look them in the eye but at the centre of their nose just above their eyes. It works for interrogations as well (and they are interrogations despite what the gentleman (right!) in the second video says). For despite what they are supposed to do, in my initial interrogation one cop kept trying to get me to say something. So I did:

"I want an attorney". Got just as bored saying it over and over as he did trying to befuddle me into something. And not maintaining eye contact with him kept me from really getting nervous.

These videos are great. Its scarey to know that even if you are innocent and well meaning you can still mess the "interview" up.

And don't say "I think I want an attorney," or "maybe I should have an attorney," or "do I need an attorney?" Be unequivocal: "I WANT AN ATTORNEY."

It's a shame that the police are more concerned with their own numbers and in elevating their own status in the system vs. looking for the truth and trying to do the right thing. I used to trust the police, but not anymore - not after what they did to my loved one and how zero attention was paid to the individuals fabricating the information against him, even when I had the proof to the contrary. Being proven wrong was more costly to THEM for having made an incorrect arrest - they had to save face and could have cared less about the irrevocable destruction against another human being.

Eye-opening! My husband needs to see this when he gets out....We were so naive to believe that police are always there to help....He didnt know that anything he said, even the truth, would be turned against him....and now he's sitting in prison over something he didnt do.

Thank you, OP.

I wish I'd seen these videos before my son's voluntary meeting with the police. The 2.5 hours spent in the "interview" were definitely a brutal interrogation.

Your local police department`s quote: `to protect & serve` THEMSELVES IS ALL! In my life I have seen soo much corruption by the police in L.A & S.D, they can hold me 24 hrs without 1 word from me, only way they get my name cuz I gotta carry my freakin driver`s lice. on me......

I have a degree in criminal justice i was taught how to lie on the stand, falsify and/or destroy evidence, and to falsify police notes, this is trained common police behavior. They are thugs- complete thugs-notice the issue of intellect brought up by the police officer in my experience, most cops fail to investigate due to laziness and or prejudice.

I'll try and watch the video when the kids are in bed. But even without watching it, i can say i lost 100% respect for our local police department since my husbands case. They were completly ignorant, and down right low. To the point, the investigator of hubbys case called one of my neighbours and blabbed to them all the details of his case, and also specific details of his childhood past with CPS! And CPS is also high on my list of agencies i despise.

I hope I didn't screw up my husbands case because the police cornered me, Literally held me in a hallway and told me stuff that probably wasn't true in order to get me to say bad things about my husband. I really hope they can't make me testify against him because I won't.
Also, I am going to tell my children NEVER to talk to a cop EVER. I can see it now, my kindergratener telling the cop "I need an attorney" when they ask "What's your name?" It makes me laugh but that is what I am going to teach my children, when I have them.
