Police Questioning : Your Rights
It is unexpected. You get a knock on your front door. You open the door and standing before you is a police officer. He or she could be in a uniform or could be in regular clothes. He politely, but firmly, informs you that he is conducting an investigation and would like to talk to you. You ask what it is regarding and he tells you that they are investigating a crime and they would like to ask you some questions. You at first agree, but once the questions get started you get a feeling of dread in the pit of your stomach. The police officer has not said it, but you get the distinct feeling they believe that you are the person who committed the crime. What should you do?
