Statement to police
“Officer, please tell me if I am under arrest or if I am being detained, or if I am free to leave. If I am not free to leave, please tell me why. I wish to exercise all of my rights now. I will not answer any questions until you let me speak to a lawyer. Please do not ask me any other questions. I do not consent to any search unless I am under arrest.”
This is good and bad. It’s only bad because when I said pretty much the exact same words to the RCMP, they got angry, mocked me for trying to play lawyer, then beat me, snapped my leg, left permanent scarring on my face and charged me with obstruction of justice for asking if I am being arrested or detained. Naturally the RCMP got away with it and one individual is now in southern AB, stalking people like Shannon Phillips even. Canada, what a great place.
