Let's face it, if it got to the point where you got arrested and/or taken to the police station, odds are you're not actually innocent. So all you're doing is just giving the police more ammo against you.
I've seen/read about stories where the police actually had NOTHING on the person but tricked them out of admitting it via interrogation. And for that interrogation to happen the person had to talk to the police out of their own free will. My reaction to those is this face
One story the guy had murdered a girl when he was 16. He completely got away with it and went on to become an engineer of some kind. Ten years later out of the blue a disabled police officer just decided to pay him a visit, interrogated him at his work place, and got the confession out of him. All this guy had to do was tell the officer "I don't have to speak to you, goodbye". Wow what idiots some people are.
Another example (though not as good as the above one) is combo hunter Josh Greenberg. He admitted to the police what he was doing. WHY admit? Sure they have you on video trying to peak or videotape or whatever he was doing. But WHY admit and make it harder for your lawyer when you go to court? All he had to do was tell the cops he won't talk without a lawyer.
While I have yet to be arrested, if the police knocked on my door saying they want to take me to the station to have a word with me, my first question would be "do you have a warrant" and if they asked to come in my home I'd say "no, we can talk right here"
There are times you have to cooperate with police, there are times you do not. No need to cooperate when you don't have to.
For instance, about 2-3 years ago (Joresky is a witness to that) I was at a spot close to where Obama was attending and secret service wanted to search my car. I refused and did not budge no matter how much they tried to talk me into it.
