50 minute video from a lawyer and police officer of how you conduct yourself with the police
We often talk about different scenarios in regards to the law, but after a quick search on the sidebar, i found this video hasn't been linked here.
I watched this video over 5 years ago and it rings in my head every single time i see a police officer.
This is a mandatory watch for any RP guy. Whether you have you're crazy wife claiming you beat her to the tinder slut you invited over for Netflix and chill and she magically wound up with your knuckle children on her face. Never mind the fact that she text you 20 minutes later saying, "Had fun, we should do it again. ;)"
The polices job is only to gather evidence to convict. They don't give a shit about your problems, how fucking crazy your wife is, how much of an ass that guy was that you ended up knocking out or the fact that it was actually an orgy and you can call 4 of the guy and 2 other girls to confirm your story.
They don't give a fuck, don't talk to them. Their job is to gather evidence, not protect you. Be polite, be respectful, but don't make their job easier.
As a man all the odds are stack against you in this day an age. You are guilt until proven innocent. Don't make it easier on them.
Never speak to the police
Edit: I would actually recommend you listen to it multiple times to ensure it is ingrained into your head. It can be very easy to get caught up in the moment and let emotions drive your actions when situations get out of hand. Especially if alcohol is involved. Watching it multiple times ensures you won't forget the information when you need it most.
Edit: Unless i missed it, I also think this should be sidebar material.
Edit: Also, use common sense with these things. If you are smart enough to record conversations and interactions and have clear evidence for your defense, don't be an idiot and sit there silently. If they have no other evidence other than bruises on a girls wrists, guess who's going to jail. Never mind you that she came at you with a knife and you held her down to not get stabbed. (My mother did that to me once actually)
It's should be pointed out though that if you are doing your TPR homework, you should know how to identify crazies and get them out of your life before a situation like this ever even occurs. If cops are at your door because you are dating a crazy bitch, you fucked up long before that day ever happened. Again, AWALT applies, never handle the gun likes it's unloaded, but some girls are higher up on the crazy spectrum than others. Always record any and all information that could protect you in the event that a girl throws you to the wolves.
With that sad, you can still provide evidence in your defense and still choose to use your right to remain silent.
"Officer, I have direct evidence on my phone that proves she's lying."
"That's great, now what exactly happened here?"
"I'll show you the recording"
"We need you get your statements."
"I don't feel comfortable talking to the police without a lawyer, sorry it was drilled into my head since I was a kid. My video/audio will show you exactly what happened."
