    Re: Legal question

    NEVER talk to the police under any circumstances if you are being suspected of a crime. If they call again just ask if they have a warrant for your arrest and if they don't, tell them to **** off.

He leaves his business card so I call him later. Meet him at Polk County, puts me in his car and reads me my rights. Starts showing me pictures of a mailbox that got knocked down the other night. I of course told him where I was and let him know that I had about 10 witnesses to prove it. So he takes me inside where a detective grills me for about 10 minutes before she gives up. Says they will press charges and I walk out the front door and go home. Should I be worried or were they just trying to scare me to get me to admit to a crime I didnt commit or do they really have something here? Should I lawyer up? They say the tracks match my truck and it happened 2 blocks from my house. I have somebody with me from 6:30 til the next day. Not sure when the crime happened.
    Wait, so they read you your rights, and then threatened to press charges right before letting you walk out the door? I thought once you were read your rights, that meant that you were under arrest and that charges were inevitable? At least that is what I have gathered from my many years of watching Law and Order...

    Re: Legal question

    I made the mistake of talking to cops when I was 19 while trying to help them...little did I know that they were lying to me and subsequently pressed charges against me. I wouldn't say **** without a lawyer present.

    OP, if you've never watched this video, take a peak. You must know your rights! While this isn't the same situation as yours, it illustrates the importance of knowing your rights as an American citizen so you are not unfairly treated by the police.

    This is very interesting situation showing a young guy at a police traffic checkpoint last July 4th. Warning: while you're learning something, this might make you mad too:

    Yeah, and that guy was an average white male. You can see how easily it is for someone to be pulled over and then "trapped" by questions or being scared.

    One of my regrets from a few years back, it was late on a Sunday night (about 10PM) and I was driving home after visiting my now wife. I was leaving a small town in southern Nebraska and got pulled over (they said I was going like 40 in a 35...as I increased speed to go 55 out of town). I had out of state plates and these two cops (small town, probably ages 25-30?) questioned me...yeah, TWO cops in a town of probably 1,000 people.

    I gave my info as requested, but the one guy was poking around and did a "do you mind if we look in your car?" In hindsight, wish I would have just said no, but having nothing to hide I said "sure" as I just wanted to get home as I had about an hour left on my way home (and it had been a long night...hit a dog on the way home!).

    They proceeded to open my duffle bags and look through them...I also had a guitar and they said, "what's in there?" as they pointed at the case...me, 'a guitar' and, surprise, that's what was in the case when they opened it. I shared exactly where I was coming from/going to.

    Anyway, I REALLY wish I would have just not talked...just because in hindsight, i would have loved to see them try to figure out what to do with me.

    Re: Legal question

    In my line of work I see alot of disgusting police tactics that are used to coerce people into giving confessions. Just the other day I listened to a interrogation where the investigator convinced a juvenile that he had done the community a favor by destroying a piece of property, as everyone in the neighboorhood hated it anyway. Moral of the story, do not talk to the police. If they charge you and a prosectuor feels they have a case against you, get a lawyer then. Talking to the police will only strengthen any case they have against you, as a judge can never infer guilt from you invoking your right to remain silent.

    In my younger days I got my car searched a few times, by town cops, they just would start looking around in it I didn't know better at the time. Good thing they were dumbasses.
