Running from the Cops

Most of you know about my fondness for the TV show Cops. I'm watching it tonight, and here's the big question: What the heck do you hope to gain by running from the cops, especially after the cop already had a good view of your face?

Best case scenario: You get away for a few days, until someone recognizes you and turns you in.

Worst case: You get tackled by a donut-loving Farva with his trusty German Shepherd. Squishing and pain ensue, perhaps with permanent bite scars, along with that "resisting arrest" charge added onto your "pot possession" or "going 55 in the 54." Is it really worth it?

No matter what happens: zip your lips. You have the right to a lawyer, and however nice the cop might seem, shutting up until your lawyer gets there is the best solution.
