Police Questioning and Plea Bargains: Keeping It Safe in the Aftermath of RNC Protests

kirsten anderberg | Now that mass arrests and criminal injustice processing has begun in NYC from the RNC protests, I want to review a few legal things for everyone. I am not an attorney, I am not giving legal advice. I am giving practical advice based on personal experience and what I learned in law school. I want to make sure everyone understands what police questioning is, how plea bargains work, etc. I want people to know that ANYTHING you say *can and will* be used against you later. SO DO NOT TALK about ANYTHING but the weather once in custody. Police like to give arrestees an illusion of privacy so they will talk together while the cops tape record it, and then they use that in court against us later as evidence. There is NO expectation of privacy in a cop car, in a holding cell, in a jail cell, in a courtroom. Do not even think you are alone. They are tape recording EVERYTHING people. Basically, if you cannot LEAVE of your own volition, DO NOT TALK AND ASSUME YOU ARE BEING RECORDED. more...  12 Comments

Greens: McReynolds for Senate Supports Springsteen in Response to Boycott by Opponent

Mark HM IMC | Unlike my Conservative Party opponent for US Senate who has called for a boycott of the music of Bruce Springsteen, I welcome The Boss' involvement in the 2004 presidential debate. All Americans - including musicians - have a right to air their views in this important election. This is a critical time for our country and our world. Americans need to take the time to understand what is happening and why. Efforts like Vote for Change help in that education process. more...  2 Comments

NYC lies regarding detainees (AP news report)

dwd | see link below for an article chock-full of lies from the city, including these gems: "Advocates have complained that those arrested have been held for too long, though Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said most had been going through the holding facility in about 90 minutes and asserted that no one was held longer than eight hours. The city's chief lawyer said in court Thursday that 524 anti-GOP protesters remain in custody even though fewer than two dozen were arrested the previous day. A legal aid lawyer told the court the figure was closer to 700. The bulk of the arrests this week were on Tuesday night." more...  19 Comments
