This will be a multi-part series where I read the book You Have the Right to Remain Innocent by James Duane. This reading project will take me several weeks to accomplish because I suck at saying what I'm reading and I have to run my narration audio through an audio editor to remove the background noise of my computer. If you wish to listen to this with minimal effort of clicking you can run this playlist. You Have the Right to Remain Innocent by James Duane The law professor behind "Don't Talk to Police" viral civil rights video. Cato Institute speaking event about the Right to Remain Innocent book. Don't Talk To The Police lecture which first brought him the civil rights forefront.

Sixth Judicial District Court of Nevada, 542 U.S. 177 (2004). 3) At the risk of stating the obvious, you should of course talk to the police (although as briefly as possible) in those situations in which the law requires you to call them (to let them know, for example, that you have been involved in an automobile accident or a shooting in which someone has been seriously injured or killed), or if you are a witness or the victim of a crime, or if you are pulled over on the highway for a minor traffic infraction. These situations have nothing to do with our central focus, which is to tell you how to handle a situation in which a police officer or other government agent comes to you without warning, in an encounter you neither requested nor proposed, and wants to ask you some questions about where you have been, who you have been with, and what you have done.
