Don't Talk to the Police

Don't Talk to the Police is a 27-minute video lecture by Law Professor James Duane of Regent University, where he explains why you should never ever talk to the police, even if you're innocent.  And, why the 5th Amendment to the United States Constitution is the best thing since sliced bread.  I'm no lawyer, but his argument is compelling and his enthusiasm contagious.  Stay tuned for the cop's rejoinder tomorrow.

Note: I watched this last month when it hit Metafilter, but now Boing Boing and Waxy picked it up, but it's one of those timeless links well worth a watch.  Also, to quickly explain the prof's allusion to the student at the beginning of the video: Regent University is a private, co-ed interdenominational Christian university at Virginia Beach, VA.
