It sounds like you have a specific situation which you need to address with a criminal defense attorney. Yes, if a police officer has evidence that you may have committed a crime and probable cause exists a minor can be searched. Guardians or parents must be called before an interrogation can occur. We would need more information to answer the questions about freedom of speech. All rights are limited so there are something's you can and cannot say and not get into legal trouble.
