I've Been Arrested... What Should I Do Now?
If you have been arrested, or are under investigation, you must understand one very important fact – THE POLICE ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND OR ADVOCATE. So many individuals who have been charged with a crime, or are being investigated for criminal activity, make the mistake of talking the police in the hope that if they show their willingness to be helpful, the cops will leave them alone. Make no mistake, the police are not your friends, they are focused on finding evidence of a crime and proving you to be a criminal.
If you find yourself on the receiving end of the government’s haste to convict you must protect yourself and invoke your right to counsel. The right to counsel is secured to all citizens by the Constitution of the United States of America because our founding fathers knew the awful extent of a government’s tyranny. The founding fathers understood that an individual is powerless against the State unless there are safeguards to protect the individual’s rights. Your right to counsel is one of the greatest safeguards that exist in our nation. Do not allow the police to deceive or coerce you into giving up this safeguard in return for their “leniency”.
The Police Will:
- Lie to you about the strength of the evidence they have against you.
- Threaten a family member or loved one with arrest and prosecution if you do not speak to them without counsel.
- Tell you that if you do not confess to the crime they are charging you with committing they will file more serious charges against you.
- Use fake polygraph examinations and show you fake results showing you “lied” during questioning.
- Offer to talk to the District Attorney on your behalf if you play ball even though they have no authority over the District Attorney.
These are just a few of the investigation methods used but the police to get innocent people to make incriminating statements that will later be used to send them to jail or prison. The police agenda is to gather evidence of a crime. If they suspect you then you are guilty in their minds. You need an experienced attorney to represent you who can counsel you on when you should talk to the cops and when you should not. Mr. Humphrey will utilize is vast knowledge and understanding of the criminal justice system to make sure your liberty and humanity is safe. If you have been arrested do not trust a cop’s word. Hire counsel who will give you the best opportunity at staying out of the cuffs…
