Trying to source a quote about justice

Trying to source a quote - my father always told me something like, "If the innocent don't stand up for their rights the job is left to the guilty" or something like that. Who was he paraphrasing?

Google has failed me. He was explaining why I should never talk to a cop without a lawyer. About why I should stand up for my civil rights even if I was innocent.
