    Thanks for posting. It has been quite awhile since I saw that so it was good to have a refresher course.

    This is a great video. Long, but entertaining. Some great information that you would never really think twice about being honest to the police.

    Thanks for sharing. I will be passing this along.

    Yep, never talk to the police. If you are a citizen the police officer will throw you under the bus innocent or guilty for their police friends. They can lie. You can not.

    They are not your friends. Plead/Take the 5th Amendment.

    DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE!!!!!!

    Here's a few more handy phrases. Can't remember if they were in this video or not.

    "I'm going to remain silent."
    "I don't consent to a search."
    "Am I free to go?"

    Police Officer - "do you know how fast you were going?"
    You - "Yes but I was still not able to counter the effects of the planet's rotation".

    Last time I got pulled over, I hawed about a bit as if trying to recollect, then drawled "Why don't you just go ahead and tell me?" Pulling out the 5th in a direct way doesn't earn you any brownie points because it challenges his authority (real or not,) but I handed it back to him in a nice way.

    It turns out that he pulled me over because, I've observed, that WSP won't generally pull you over for doing under 75 in a 60 (assuming there's nothing else to ticket you for) but he was kind enough to state that I wasn't making him look so good, passing a police officer doing 72. I think he was out of his jurisdiction anyway, and wasn't too concerned about getting a ticket on that basis alone. He was a nice guy, and I always turn on the inside lights before I even shut the car off so he can better see everything I'm doing in the car. Goes a long way towards making them feel comfortable. The CC permit he got with my DL and registration might have helped. I told him to have a better day and he laughed, so I knew he was at ease from the start.

    I don't give a rat's a55 if they feel comfortable or not.

    That's all well and good, and you are welcome to treat anyone however you'd like, even if you would like yourself treated differently. You do, however, get better results in life in general, and this conversation in specific, by being kind and cordial.

    you're right on the money. being nice goes a long way. I have gotten out of many tickets by simply laughing being a good guy and someone they can identify with. out of all the times I have been pulled over there was one a few years ago when I would of written myself a ticket. I "supposedly" ran a red light in front of a cop - actually the light was green for him when I went through it. Yup....I ran it BAD. he pulled me over asked me why I think he stopped me and said, well I think I have a pretty good idea. it went from there and he gave me a warning. I never forgot that and I never push red lights - if they are yellow I stop. That act of kindness was great - like i said if I pulled myself over I would of given myself a ticket no question.
