A law school professor and former criminal defense attorney says you should never agree to be interviewed by the police!  It just makes common sense to have a lawyer present if you are approched by law enforcement.

There are so many federal and state laws in the United States now, that no one can keep track of them all, and everyone violates laws every day without even knowing it..

Interestingly, the Supreme Court ruled this year that (click on the blue highlight to read ) your silence CAN be used against you (the link is to the website of one of America’s top constitutional law professors) … at least until you’re read your Miranda rights.  Therefore, if you remain silent when police are questioning you, it is very important to tell the police that you are exercising your right to remain silent.  As the Atlantic notes (click the blue highlight):

Basically, if you’re ever in any trouble with police… and want to keep your mouth shut, you will need to announce that you’re invoking your Fifth Amendment right instead of, you know, just keeping your mouth shut.  [Supreme Court] opinion “Petitioner’s Fifth Amendment claim fails because he did not expressly invoke the privilege against self-incrimination in response to the officer’s question,”.
