*People are just naturally honest.
The statement above was spoken by a police captain, who is one of two speakers on a video where the subject is “Why You Should Never Talk to the Police.”
He is not saying this as a compliment, but as a reason why he has successfully gotten so many people convicted of crimes. In the video, which is at the conclusion of this article, a passionate, informative and often comical presentation is given by a law school professor/former criminal defense attorney who provides a wealth of knowledge supported by concrete examples on how a person easily incriminates him or herself by talking too much.
He provides 8 reasons on why you should NOT talk to the police; even when you are pulled over on a traffic stop; in an “off the record” situation (its never off the record); or even when you know you are innocent.
His reasoning for this? It will NEVER help you.
