Would have liked to have the cop actually challenge him a little rather than having a cop who admitted he wanted to be a defense attorney.
That said, i’m sure its all true, but if a cop asks you if you were at xyz place last night when you were in a totally different state are you guys all honestly telling me you would say i refuse to answer the question without your lawyer?
I think that the cop gave good insight into the process and tools that they use to gather information and build a case, which is what he was there for.
As far as not ever saying anything goes, they might be exaggerating a tiny bit, but not much. The only time I’ve ever been questioned and not arrested was when I had an alibi and a bunch of people to corroborate.
The detective made a very good analogy to the boxer too. Those guys are very sharp and experienced, and if you mis-step or tell some dumb lie, they will have you. They don’t usually even do an “interview” unless they strongly suspect and have some substantial evidence already.
Agreed, but he was basically saying even with an alibi you should lawyer up, which whilst probably true, i just don’t think id do, guess it totally depends on the circumstances though.
I thought the cop was very interesting and everything he said in terms of tactics was great, i just kinda wish he had more of an opposing view i guess and it was more of a debate.
Fuckin good viewing though.
Hopefully its something none of us end up needing
