Read The Privilege to Shut Up, a powerful essay on whether and when to talk to the police.
Originally published in January 2014 on Popehat, the well-known group blog, and authored by Ken White, it covers the dangers of speaking with the cops, and the reasons why you shouldn’t say much more beyond asking for a lawyer. White advocates for staying mum.
He also acknowledges that you could suffer consequences for exercising your right to stay silent, and he acknowledges that the consequences can be tougher for people who are neither white nor affluent.
This is a strong article on a worthy blog. It’s worth bookmarking.
