TOPIC: Why you shouldn’t talk to the police
KEY POINTS: You have been conditioned to talk. Numerous TV shows have planted the thought that if you don’t talk, you must be guilty, so you offer to help because you don’t want them to think that. (and you are helping them because you can’t possibly know every one of the sixty million statutes that they have.)
BENEFIT OF REVIEWING THIS MATERIAL: You will understand why anything you say CAN and WILL be used against you, but NOTHING that you say WILL ever be admitted into the case to assist your defense. This is true even if you ask the officer to testify to what you said at the time of the discussion later in court. It will be dismissed as hearsay.

We celebrate our freedom on the Fourth of July by watching the bright red white and blue flashes of lights, the illusion is maintained until they show up in the rear view mirror. See 4th Of July DUI Checkpoint;
A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding, and the trooper started to lecture the farmer about his speed and, in general, began to throw his weight around to try to make the farmer uncomfortable.
Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket, and as he was doing that he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head.
The farmer said, “Having some problems with circle flies there, are ya?”
The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said, “Well yeah, if that’s what they are. I never heard of circle flies.”
So the farmer says, “Well, circle flies are common on farms. See, they’re called circle flies because they’re almost always found circling around the back end of a horse.”
The trooper says, “Oh,” and goes back to writing the ticket. Then after a minute he stops and says, “Hey! Wait a minute, are you trying to call me a horse’s ass?”
The farmer says, “Oh no, Officer. I have too much respect for law enforcement and police officers to even think about calling you a horse’s ass.”
The trooper says, “Well, that’s a good thing,” and goes back to writing the ticket.
After a long pause, the farmer says, “Hard to fool them flies though.”
