We have talked about how you should never talk to the cops. In the video at the end of this post, a heroin addict who is under arrest because he was found near the scene of a robbery conducts a master class in applying this tactic:

  • Cop1: Reads Miranda Warning, and says “Do you understand your rights?”
  • Heroin Addict: Remains Silent
  • Cop 2: If you have something to show you didn’t do it, this is your time to talk
  • HA: Are you the good cop?
  • Cop 2: No, I’m the prick
  • HA: You look like a prick.
  • Cop 1: I’m not asking you to talk to me at this point. I just want to know if you understand your rights.
  • HA: Am I under arrest?
  • Cop1: Yes
  • HA: Then take me back to my cell, because I don’t talk to you motherfuckers.

They took him back to his cell, but questioned him again two hours later, and this time they brought him sodas. Still he didn’t talk.

  • Cop 1: Talk to me.
  • HA: You’re not my friend. You’re just trying to get some stupid ass confession from me.

The video talks about cops using the Reid technique. It is a trick used by cops, especially the FBI, to trick people into confessing. This technique is a form of psychological manipulation that is designed to trick people into agreeing to a set of facts that is a confession.

The best way to avoid this technique is not to say anything beyond:

  • Am I being detained?
  • Am I free to go?
  • I don’t wish to make a statement
  • I want to call my attorney, or I want to be provided with an attorney.

That’s it. I’m guessing that psychological games and manipulation are why the J6 supporters are being held in the deplorable conditions that they are. A person who has been denied nutrition, sleep, and social interaction is easier to manipulate. At this point, they are political prisoners or even POWs.

Anyhow, the video is below:

SERE training is a good catch-phrase for the concept of this post. I was glad I never had to go through SERE training but us regular folks should probably come up to speed as quickly and as well as possible. SERE skills might have helped some of the J6ers and may be critical for many of us

Suspect asked for an attorney, yet they continued to question him. Funny how just that small percentage of “bad” cops end up in all these videos of police misconduct.

“…but my main point remains- cops who allow this sort of behavior to exist without doing anything to put a stop to it are not good cops.”

I can only recall a few dozen videos on Social Media where any “good cop” tries to intervene with the other handful or dozens of bad cops pulling their BS in front of God & Everybody. Your 90% figure seems right on the nose to me.

Graduate of SERE (Rubbers Hose 1 and 2) and they emphasized how the friendly interrogator was the most dangerous one.

Took a criminal justice class once taught by a retired homicide detective. He told us that anytime a suspect talked to them, they almost always got a conviction. If a suspect refused to talk to them and lawyered up, they almost never got a conviction.

    This is what I am talking about. This is a crew of BAD cops. They tried to entrap him, failed, then initiated an illegal traffic stop due to the mistaken belief that he had the package with the drugs in it. Once the realized their mistake, an honest and ethical (good) cop would have apologized.
    That isn’t what happened here. Instead, the tried to drug dog sniff the car. Nope.
    Then they arrested him on charges that were trumped up and a lie, then claimed the search that they conducted was incident to the arrest. Still didn’t find anything.
    Maybe we are better off without cops.

Add not talking to the “press” as well – the best you will get is their opinion of your actions!
