"Don't Talk to the Police"

Very interesting couple of seminars. From the US legal perspective, but here in NZ we also have the right to say nothing to police - as recently demonstrated by the now infamous Kahui trials. Here is why we, too should say nothing, even if they tell us we are not a suspect...

I was especially thinking about those awful/ridiculous 'terrorism raids' of last year, where people of Tuhoe and various environmentalists were rounded up and interrogated under the new Terrorism Suppression Act.

Best to hear the sort of advice given in these videos before you need it :)
