DON'T PANIC :: DON'T TALK

If you think that you might be identified from photos or footage from recent events, then here's some advice....

DON'T panic. The photos released are not necessarily evidence. Just because the police have a blurry photo that might be of you doesn't mean they know who you are.

DON'T Hand yourself in. The police often use the psychological pressure of knowing they have your picture to persuade you to “come forward” when they don't know who you are or have any evidence against you.

DON'T assume that because you can identify yourself in a video, a judge will be able to as well. “That isn't me” has got many a person off before.

DO get rid of your clothes. There is no chance of suggesting the person in the video is not you if the clothes they are wearing have been found in your wardrobe. Get rid of ALL clothes you were waring when you were out, incluing YOUR SHOES, your bag and any distinctive jewellery you were wearing at the ttime.

DO keep a low profile for a while. The police will be on the look-out at other demos for people they have put on their “wanted” list.

DO think about changing your appearance. Perhaps now is a good time foa make-over. Get a haircut and colour, grow a beard, wear glasses.

DO keep your house clean. Get rid of spray cans, demo related stuff and dodgy tests/photos on your phone. Don't make life easy for them by having drugs, weapons or anything else illegal in the house.

DO be careful who you speak about this to. Admit your involvement ONLY to people you really trust. Be very careful what you say on the internet.

DO try and contrl the nerves and panic. Waiting for a knock on the door is stressful in the extreme, but you need to find a way to get on with life as normal. Otherwise you'll be serving the sentence before you know it.
