This just occurred. Alexander was the guy the feds were looking for I think. Jammed their cell phones prior to the raid.
Again, not a Blago prison event.

As to what to do at the time of an event like this ... remember ... contract law runs through everything. Three things to ask for

1) ask for a business card
2) ask if they are a public employee
3) notice them that they are going to hold them in a position as public trustee.

Now as to them giving YOU notice ... notice is the opening salvo in due process. Notice endows you with the right to inquire. Forget staying silent. Inquiring means you ASK QUESTIONS. I have some interesting questions already lined up for the FBI concerning their involvement in a local affair a couple years back. ANYONE showing up at my door noticing me that they are FBI are going to be SHOWERED with many questions. Failure to answer any of them means due process is incomplete. You don't go to hearing until all your questions are answered. If hearing is premature the judge gets put on notice that due process has not been given, a constitutional violation under both the 14th amendment and amendment V.

When you inquire you do not make statements. The first statement you make ("I need a cup of coffee") and your due process is complete and off to hearing you go.
