“Anything you say CAN and WILL be used against you in a court of law!” That statement (Miranda Warning) is something we ALL need to be aware of when dealing with law enforcement. Yes, you may truly be 100% innocent and not in the least bit involved in any type of crime, but if you begin to speak to law enforcement you may possibly incriminate yourself without even knowing it. Don’t be afraid to assert your 5th amendment rights and REMAIN SILENT!
A lot of states have what is known as “stop-and-identify” and/or “Obstruction” statues, so please educate yourself on your state law to know when you’re required, by law, to identify yourself to law enforcement.
