1. 1. You are required to identify yourself so carry proper identification.

  2. 2. ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING that you say to the officer will in fact be used against you, and therefore KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT, because your mouth is your worst witness against you.

  3. 3. When asked any question before or after you identify yourself, be fully cooperative by saying over and over again to every question:

  4. “Officer I will be more than happy to speak with you with my attorney present and therefore, I hereby exercise my Miranda Rights and demand an attorney. Arrest me or release me.”

  5. 4. If the officers are at the door, DO NOT LET THEM IN AND TELL THEM TO COME BACK WITH A WARRANT IF THEY WISH TO ENTER, otherwise they are trespassing.

  6. 5. Remember the biggest lie, “Hi I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.”
