Rule Number One: Don’t talk.
The 5th Amendment of the Constitution gives every citizen the right to refrain from being a witness against themselves in a criminal matter.
If a police officer has come up to you and has asked you to identify yourself, you must identify yourself. After that, you have a right guaranteed by the Constitution that you can remain silent and you don’t have to answer questions like “Where have you been? Where are you going? What is in your pockets? Did you see? Who are you with? What’s the speed limit around here?”
