    And yet we have many instances of officers *NOT* controlling their anger properly. (See Unconscious Driver Beaten by Police | Video - ABC News for one such - did the criminal "deserve" to get beaten up? Probably. But should the officers have done it? Definitely not.)

    If you are a witness: Talk
    If you are a suspect: Don't talk

    Simple advise from Retired LEO

As you may have expreienced yourself, this is a stressful and traumatic experience for me. therefore, I wish to make no further statements until i have contacted an attorney and composed myself. I also do not consent to any searches. I will cooperate fully once I have consulted with an attorney and calmed down. As a lawfully armed citizen, I ask for the same courtesy that you would show a fellow officer who was involved in a similar situation. Thank you for understanding.
    My lawyer would receive a copy of this card and a full explanation, so he may give me the best defense.
    Good advice as far as not saying anything and explaining it without having to talk.

    Also good advice. I am sure there is more good advice on this topic. These two just stuck in my head the most.

    Of course you may not know WHICH you are, and the police are LEGALLY entitled to lie to you about it.

    If there's ANY question, best to not talk without a lawyer present.

    If they wish to talk to me anytime, anywhere they and I will wait for my attorney.

    refuse to speak to them? I hear that you need to stay on the phone with 911 until they arrive but when can you actually dial your attorney?

    In this age of cell phones, be aware that the 911 center may "lock up" your phone. After I called 911 in 2008, I had to remove the battery, then replace it, then let the phone reboot. Prior to that, they had control of my phone, including whether I could turn it off.

    What model of phone were you using?

    My wife had that happen to her phone. I don't remember what model it was, but Sprint was the carrier. Pull the battery to unlock.

    Have seen this work recently. Went on a domestic call with a local cop (I'm an armed security officer, among other things). Cop banged on the door and announced. Place went quiet and no one answered. Cop knocked and announced 3 times with no result. The resident finally opened for me because they knew if they didn't, they would lose their happy home. Kinda cool, actually, I appreciate citizens who know how to handle gov't agents.
