Keep in mind that there are police officers who also break the law and causing a bad name to themselves and others. Not to mention some of them might arrest you they might try to surpass your right to call a lawyer or become silent as a way of abusing power. I may be over exaggerating, but something like this already happened and I wouldn't be surprised if it repeats again.

I am watching some amateur video on Beyond The Tape via TV6 showing an arrest being made on Charlotte St. The level of lawlessness is so bad that as the police were trying to make an arrest people gathered saying to the suspect "Take the police's gun and shoot him". People were also getting involved to try and stop the police from doing their job. Police need to have tasers, pepper spray, etc.

I'm surprised there isn't exact wording that a police officer should say otherwise they could tell you something that isn't accurate. One word change in a statement can totally change the meaning of it.

Title: Knowing you rights on arrest

Comments: Not sure if anyone has any rights on this island at present .There is just too much lawlessness.It obviously do not give the police time to think logically. However some bright police on this site may be able to advise you of your rights.

I don't think there are exact words hence leaving a lot open for lawyers to use should the need arise. Like the poster above said they just inform you that you can call a lawyer and you can remain silent.
