silent until you meet with a lawyer??
In the US the police have the power to stop and question people who are not under arrest. In that case you should ONLY give your full name and address. Other than that, you don't have to say shit. If you don't identify yourself, the pigs can arrest you.
In example 2 you are under arrest, and telling the pigs your name is the least of your worries. The best thing for you to do once you have told the pigs who you are is to shut the fuck up and wait to speak to your lawyer.
