A while back, a defense attorney and a former policeman turned law student (two different people, if it's not clear) gave speeches to a group of law students informing them why it's not in their or their clients' best interests to talk to police. The speeches were taped and put on youtube, and they have become very popular. (Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wXkI4t7nuc) Both purport to be legal professionals in some kind, and the performance and presentation seems to be well-researched, thorough, and supported by their experiences.
I know that many of the posters on this board are big fans of law enforcement (some current/former law enforcement) and post in ways that are friendlier to prosecutors and police than citizens who may be accused of a crime. I'm wondering how accurate and truthful you find the assertions on this video and how those of you who are more pro-law enforcement than those two would rebut their claims.
Those of you who tend to side with the accused over the government, what parts of the video do you agree and disagree with, and how would you support/alter the video?
Thanks for your time, and if I'm in the wrong board, please feel free to move this.
