    He can say, "Yes I was drinking alcohol. I was doing so legally."




    Or better yet, "I want a lawyer, I don't speak to cops".

    What about "Due to religious concerns, I cannot have contact with pork".

    Take a page from Tiger's book, y'all. You are NOT required to voluntarily participate in attempts to incriminate you.

    Also, when you let a stranger in your house, you are not consenting to let them search every inch of it; but if you friend someone on Facebook, since you have control of your privacy settings and since you decide what goes up there based on what you want others to see, you are basically consenting to let that person see everything that your friends can see.
    But what's illegal about it?

    What's illegal about holding a bloody knife next to a stabbing victim? Nothing. But it makes good evidence too.

    You understand that in most murder cases, there is evidence of an actual crime BESIDES a photo, right?

    Just...just walk away. It will save you a lot of frustration and disappointment if you just accept the fact that you are not having a legitimate conversation with him/her...whatever....right now and just let it go.

    Yes for people who get convicted. No for people who get arrested.

    Well, actually, no. Murder cases have been built on less.

    But that's irrelevant. The point is that nobody was being prosecuted for holding a beer in a picture. It was used as evidence of a crime, not the crime itself.

    I will add here my standard periodic reminder that I agree that this was a stupid waste of police time.
