Good advice: Do not talk to the police

Don't talk to this guy

My friends and fellow Green Chip members Neko and Bootlegger posted the video linked below. You might be thinking, “But what does Talking to the Police have to do with casinos and advantage play?”

Casinos often abuse skilled patrons. Casino employees have been known to fabricate phony criminal charges to harass patrons they dislike. Police become involved. Casino employees routinely lie to police about what happened. Naturally, the police will want to talk to the patron/victim, who suddenly becomes a “suspect.” (If you doubt this really happens, read Beat the Players.) It is imperative that in such a situation, the “suspect” does not talk to the police. NO GOOD CAN COME OF IT. You will almost never be able to talk your way out of an arrest that is requested by dishonest casino employees. If the officer is corrupt as well, your chance is less than “almost never” – it is ZERO. And you will not know if the officer is corrupt until it is too late.

In Las Vegas, where casino abuse of patrons occurs most often, there is a high probability that the responding police officer is corrupt when it comes to doing the bidding of casinos. Let your attorney talk for you at the appropriate time, when you sue everyone involved.The information on the video should be basic knowledge to most Americans, but it is offered with specific, interesting examples of what can happen with seemingly innocent comments made to the police. It is presented by a former criminal defense attorney who is now a law professor. A police officer also makes a good presentation. I urge you to carefully listen to both speakers. I hope you will never need this little “refresher course,” but in today’s hostile, unethical casino environment, it is more likely you will need it than you might want to admit.Talking to the Police by Prof. James Duane
