    While digging for info about terry stops I came across the Reid method of interrogation. Very interesting. This helps me understand the importance of KYMS (keep your mouth shut) when approached/ detained by LE. This Reid thing should go right along with wash, rinse and repeat.springerdave.

    Most police detectives and interrogators in Michigan are trained in the following method of interrogation. Key points to look at here, the suspect really not allowed to talk much until step 8. Another key point with this technique is that it is not concerned with voluntariness of the statement until the police are recording the statement at the end of Step 9.

    Step Two:Theme Development
    [/b]
    [/b][/b]A.Transition phases from confrontation.
    B.Propose reasons that will justify or excuse the commission of the crime.
    C.Behavioral assessment of suspect to choose proper theme.
    D.Longest portion of 9 steps.

    Step Three:Stopping Denials
    [/b][/b]
    [/b]A. Both guilty and innocent deny the crime at issue.
    B.Starts during direct positive confrontation.
    C.Absence of denials in step two indicates probable guilt.
    D.Interrogator recognizes and stops denial before it is complete.

    B.Normally offered by only the guilty.
    C.Indicates progress n the interrogation if given after denials.
    D.Handled differently than denials by first listening and accepting.
    E.Proper handling of objections helps overcome the subject’s defenses.

    Step Five:Getting the Suspect’s Attention

    C.Interrogator reaches peak of sincerity in his speech.
    D.Physical closeness and use of verbal techniques to command attention.
    E.Physical gestures of sincerity are used to establish attitude of understanding and concern.

    Step Six: The Suspect Quiets and Listens
    [/b]
    [/b]A. The physical signs of surrender begin to appear.
    B.The themes are shortened and lead toward alternatives.
    C.Establishment of eye contact is most important at this point by verbal andphysical techniques.
    D.Tears at this stage positively indicate the suspect’s guilt.

    Step Seven: Alternatives
    [/b]
    [/b]A.Non-threatening to suspect they concern some minor aspect of the crime.
    B.Gives choice between acceptable reason and unacceptable reason for committing the crime.
    C.One alternative is stressed to lead subject to choose the positive alternative.
    D.Either choice is an admission of guilt.

    B.The suspect is encouraged to talk about aspect of the crime.
    C.The use of realistic words is introduced by the interrogator.
    D.Initial corroboration of the confession is begun.
    E.Oral witnessing of admissions by two persons.

    Step Nine:The Confession
    [/b]
    [/b]A.Reduction of oral statement into written, typed, or electronically recorded form.
    B.Voluntariness of statement is established along with corroboration of details.
    C.Suspect’s signing of statement is witnessed by two or more persons.

    [/b]Post Interrogation Interview:[/b]

    B.Keeps guilty suspect in proper frame of mind during typing of formal statement.

    This comes from Practical Aspects of Interview and Interrogation[/i], David E. Zulawski, and Douglas E. Wicklander,CRC Press, Ann Arbor, 1998.


    3 c:Glad they have found the truth machine.

    4 a, b: I guess telling them you have done nothing illegal means you are guilty.

    6 d: I guess my allergies and watery eyes mean I did it. People cry for a variety of reasons, not just becausethey areguilty of a crime. I love all the assumptions and "facts" determining guilt. Reminds me of the Salem witch trials. Same logic.

    Step 1: Under suspicion of what crime are you stopping me?

    Step 2: Am I Free to go?

    Step 3: "I will not answer any questions without an attorney present"



    Obviously, there are some things in between those steps, but that's the general flow chart. Those are also about the only three phrases that I will ever say to a LEO weather I am under arrest or not.

    In step 8b, is that legal if the person hasn't yet been read their miranda rights? Or even arrested for that matter. After reading this, if i'm retained for any reason it will definatelybe, Wash; rinse; and repeat.

    They can ask you to do damn near anything they want, but the key word is ask, not order.

    The only difference is the reply...

    Pre-Miranda: "Under suspicion of what crime am I being Detained" & "Am I free to go?"

    Post-Miranda/Arrest: "I will not answer any questions without legal council present"
