More of the same...

Along the same thread as the post below, here's "How to Break the Law," by Duncan Frissell
Arrest etiquette can be complicated for the arresting officers but it is easy for the arrestee. There are only two rules: 1) Keep your mouth shut and 2) Cooperate physically with the arrest. Following rule two will help preserve your kidneys, limbs, and skull but following rule one is the most important.

During the first two years after your arrest, there are only four words that you should speak to minions of the State in an official capacity:

"I want a lawyer"

Say nothing else.

Go there.
