Dealing with Police and Government Agents
by Micheal Berosch
“Any lawyer worth his salt will tell the suspect in no uncertain terms to make no statement to police under any circumstances.” (U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson writing in Watts v. Indiana, 338 U.S. 49 (1949))
Dealing with Police and Government Agents: What to Do If You Become a Target of Government Surveillance and Police Harassment

There was a time when parents could tell their children, “the policeman is your friend”. Today that is no longer the case. The policeman is not your friend, he or she is a government agent that will lie to you, lie about you, use threats and intimidation to coerce you into making statements against your own interest, or even confessing to crimes that you did not commit.

This book is intended to highlight your legal rights and offer some guidance as to what you can do if you become a target of government surveillance and police harassment.
