Another thing most people do not know is that if the police knock on your door, you DO NOT have to answer the door at all. Once you make the mistake of opening the door, the police are going to want to pressure you into inviting them inside your house. The police are like vampires, they cannot come inside without a search warrant unless they are invited. They will use all sorts of scare tactics, intimidation, and threats to get you to invite them in so they can have a look around. Just ignore the door. If the police have a search warrant, then they can bust the door down and come in without your permission. If they knock and they do not have a search warrant, then they will knock and pound on the door and if you ignore them, they will go away eventually. You are under no obligation to open the door just because it is the police that are knocking.
If you make the mistake of opening the door for them, they can use dirty tricks like wedging their foot in the door so you cannot close it again. So it is always best to ignore the knocking. But if you do happen to make the mistake of opening the door, then the questions will begin. As soon as they ask you the first question, the best thing to do is ignore the question, and ask them for their search warrant. If they do not have one, then the next thing you should do is say the magic words, I want my attorney present before you question me on anything. These magic words will cause the police to stop all questions until your attorney is present to assist you.
If the police persist after you say this, then I highly recommend you begin recording their behavior. Grab your phone and activate the camera. Let them know that you are recording the conversation or filming it. This will usually discourage them from terrorizing you further at your residence. It is amazing how well they behave when they know they are being recorded. This is a very powerful tool and you should always utilize recording options when they are available to you.
It is unfortunate that the police in the USA are like a terrorist organization in itself. The police will always stick together, and they are not here to help you. They can bully you, lie to you, intimidate you, and threaten you and this behavior is perfectly acceptable to them.
So knowing all of this, NEVER open the door when the police come knocking. NEVER admit to your relationship with your family member. NEVER answer any questions without your attorney present. And ALWAYS record their behavior when you come into contact with them. By taking these precautions, you can keep you and your family safe from being terrorized by the police.
Good luck and be safe everyone. And remember THE POLICE ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS!!!
