  2. Never talk to the cops. Always get a lawyer. He will find this out if he gives them anything, as they will likely use it to try to pin the crime on him.

    Chak — depending on context, there are cases where you can say, “Hey, do you know where the bathroom is?” But that’s only if you weren’t the one to initiate the interaction.
