Your right to remain silent is threatened. Apparently:

A PERSON’S “right to remain silent” with impunity after being arrested will be effectively abolished under a police campaign to be taken to the next state election. Source: The Daily Telegraph

I’m all in favor of reforming the criminal justice system. It has been skewered to favor legal vested interests. Justice should be understandable and accessible. But it is part of a complex system. Addressing only one part of a complex system can result in negative unexpected consequences.

The law is probably resulting in too many guilty people being found innocent. This results in innocent people being harmed or forced to live in fear because criminals who should be incarcerated are preying on them or their neighbors. But this brilliant post makes me support the right to remain silent:

Prof. James Duane of the Regent University School of Law explains why even angels devoid of the slightest moral blemish should never speak to police officers, tax collectors or other law-enforcement agents investigating crimes. Duane assumes no malice on the part of the police — just human failings and motivations.

Prof. Duane points out at the start of the video that given

The — literally — unknowable extent to which federal laws and regulations have grown, so that even the government itself has no idea how many punishable offenses there are. It’s very easy for people with clean consciences to admit to violating laws and regulations they never knew existed.

The second video is an interview with George Bruch of the Virginia Beach Police Department. He says the professor is absolutely right. He also explains why you will not best the police in an interview. They are paid to be there, you are not. They are experienced professionals who do them all the time. It is like climbing into the ring with an Olympic boxer. The chances are you will come off worse.

Watch the two videos, no matter how decent and law abiding a citizen you are. It could save you a lot of trouble down the line.
