This video breaks standard internet rules; in order to be popular, get lots of hits, et cetera, a video should not be under four minutes- a little over three seems to be the best. And if your attention span is just that, then here's the tl;dr version: never talk to the police. This isn't a stop snitching lecture. This is about your rights, and why you should exercise one of them in particular whenever you are interacting with the police. To quote Supreme Court Justice Robert J. Jackson, "...any lawyer worth his salt will tell the suspect in no uncertain terms to make no statement to the police under any circumstances."
My apologies in advance to the Richmond Police, whose officers I admire and value beyond words; I doubt they appreciate the advice stated above one bit (although I do hope they share my love of the constitution and the rights guaranteed therein). They may contact me in regards to this article, however I feel it is safe to say that I have no comment.
