Senator Kyl on Rights

As you may have heard by now, Senator Kyl, Republican from Arizona, is shocked that people don’t admit everything to police. Well, actually, he’s shocked that some people would actually advise people to exercise their rights. You know, the old, unused things things that used to be protected by the US Constitution. Things like the right to not incriminate yourself. Or the right to have assistance of counsel for your defense.

If you haven’t heard the story, basically, Senator Kyl is outraged that a Muslim group in America is telling all its members not to speak to members of law enforcement without a lawyer. Well, that’s nice advice, but it should be extended to everyone in the country, not just a few Muslims.

You see, in America today, the police are not your friend. They are never going to talk to you to be nice to you. Their job, as they see it, is to arrest people. That’s what they do. Just ask them! They’re LAW ENFORCERS and they enforce the law. You should, as a citizen in America, never voluntarily speak with the police. They cannot force you to speak to them, either. You have the right to not speak with them at any time. In fact, speaking to them is always a bad idea. If you don’t believe, just take a peek at this video. Sure, it’s long, but that fellow will clearly explain why, without exception, voluntarily talking to the police will get you in trouble.

So, Senator Kyl, perhaps if you want more cooperation from citizens in America, you might work to make the police someone who we might want to talk to.
