An FBI agent approached me that they want to talk to me

An FBI agent approached me that they want to talk to me about a case they believe i have information and are trying to gather such from me. I will have an attorney present during the interview. I'm not the suspect but are concerned and don't know my rights what to answer and what i may object. I don't want to commit perjury or obstruction of justice... but I am afraid they will use this tactic to scare me to say what "they" want me to say. They will intervew me for an hour or so for information that can be provided in five minutes or less... also, at this point am i classified as a witness or a person of interest?

I am Landon ******.I believe I was assaulted by an

Hello, I am Landon ******.I believe I was assaulted by an officer and abducted by the police and am wondering if there is any way you can assist me in a law suit or beating my case which I believe is unjust.My situation;After pulling into my driveway and exiting the vehicle I was surprised to see there was an officer aggressively approaching me and yelling at me. I was frightened and I stood still as he continued to yell. As he got close enough that I could understand what he was saying, I heard him tell me to get back into the car and immediately after he asked me what I was doing. I replied, "nothing" as I held out my palms to show that there was only my debit card in my hands at which time he grabbed and twisted my arm and hurt me. I did not want to get into any physical altercation, nor do I believe that I acted in anyway to incite physical aggression or violence. I believe I was being assaulted and bullied and I freed myself and ran into my home where I thought I would be safe. I told my wife what was happening as more officers showed up and knocked on the door.I opened the door and was pulled out of my home by a different officer at which time I was interrogated by all of the officers as to why I ran from the first officer and I replied "I was scared". I was then put in hand cuffs and pushed into a police vehicle. I was never told that I was under arrest or read my rights but still was taken to the police department where I was told after I sign the documents placed in front of me that I would be free to go. Then I was told that I would have to post bail or go to jail until my court date. I posted bail and was allowed to leave.

Zoey I am following up with you on my last

For Zoey only. Hi zoey I am following up with you on my last question regarding my friends son. Turns out the the autopsy came back with no trauma to the body and they have sent things off for toxicology which it's said will take about 4 weeks. I have two questions.1. They went out of the house for the first time since I spoke to you to have dinner and while they were eating a cop came up and asked him and his friend to step outside. He told them that they knew what it was about and that he needed to call his Sargent by this Sat...he said there's no problem but if he doesn't call there will be a problem. He just took the card and went back to his table without saying anything. I know you said don't call and he doesn't intend to but how long can they harass him about this?2. A local reporter made some very untrue comments. Can/should I reach out with our side or is that as bad as talking to the police. Maybe not our 'side' but some facts, such as the fact that him and the deceased were friends not 'enemies' and my friends son never touched the deceased?

My partner and I were not aware of are rights and were never

My partner and I were not aware of are rights and were never warned of our rights before we were questioned about some Aluminum shelves we took from a renovating company that we believed was from the snack company that moved out of that building complex. For 15 years that snack company made an offer to me to collect there recycled material such as copper, aluminum, wire, and computers. A week later we were arrested for Grand Theft. We were never warned of our Miranda Rights.We saw the aluminum shelving there one day and decided to wait a week to see if any one claimed it. The shelves were dirty and it was raining during that week we waited. We decided to recycle the shelves. After 3 days a police officer questioned us and unaware of our rights we answered the truth and they told us it did not belong to the snack company but the renovating company. We offered to pay the amount of the shelves and we tried to retrieve it back at the recycling company, but they processed the aluminum and was shipped out and melted. We want to know if our rights were violatedand can that be used in court to dismiss all the information that the police officer questioned us about.
