The 5th Amendment: Don't Talk to the Police!

I don't mean any disrespect to the Police who are just performing their job to gather information. Nevertheless, Profess0r James Duane, Regent Law School Professor, and former defense attorney, explains quite succinctly why you should never agree to give any Statement to the Police before working with your lawyer for your own protection. Nothing you say to the Police can be used to protect you (it would be thrown out in court as hearsay), but everything you say can & will be used against you.

I have been told the same thing by the police. The best advice I got was to say something to the effect of "I have been involved in a lawful self-defense shooting. Please call me an ambulance."

As soon as you request an ambulance, all interrogation must stop. This gives you a chance to rid yourself of "diarrhea of the mouth" and to contact a lawyer, who will advise you not to say anything.
