    Ok, that I'd agree with.

    Also, cmon with that grand jury statement. That's a straw man and you know it.
    No, no. I didn't mean that about americanwoman and I mentioned a trial jury for a reason (as opposed to a grand jury). It was something that struck me after the Zimmerman trial, like some people didn't think all the constitutional protections about presumption of innocence or the burden of proof being on the state should have applied in that case.

    I don't care.

    That will help you in jail, I'm sure. Just allow people to throw you in a dangerous place and deal with them later. Great idea.

    And you might lose your ass, too, along with being charged with obstruction. Good luck with your attitude...you'll need it.

    Wow I'm dyslexic or something. I read that as grand jury trial, not jury trial.

    Though if you ask me, the problem in the Zimmerman trial wasn't the jury, it was the overzealous prosecutor who went for charges he could never get.

Cue - "But I would never ever commit a crime or be questioned for such a crime either and if I was I have nothing to hide" responses. The right to remain silent is one of the best legal rights we have that's why it was put in our constitution. I'm surprised, or maybe not, most people take such a thing for granted.
    While I respect your perspective here, I believe you're 100% wrong in your approach. The advice given by "whysoserious" was to never, ever, answer questions from a police officer. Always refuse to answer and ask for a lawyer. And that advice, in my humble view, is utterly asinine, even if your little brother is a lawyer with a lot of free time.

    What? He just said he wouldn't resist arrest and play along like a nice little boy.

    I haven't been to jail very often, but I don't think it's as dangerous as you are making it out to be. Prison is dangerous - jail is a temporary holding place. I don't think many people die or get harmed in jail.

    I wouldn't want to be there, but I don't think it's quite the hell you are making it out to be.

    Why would I get charged with obstruction?

    I imagine it would depend upon timing and location. When folks who haven't been to jail think about it, it's Rikers Island they see on TV that comes to mind.
