Default Ruling supreme court change in miranda rights

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that suspects must explicitly tell police they want to be silent to invoke Miranda protections during criminal interrogations, a decision one dissenting justice said turns defendants' rights "upside down."
A right to remain silent and a right to a lawyer are the first of the Miranda rights warnings, which police recite to suspects during arrests and interrogations. But the justices said in a 5-4 decision that suspects must tell police they are going to remain silent to stop an interrogation, just as they must tell police that they want a lawyer.

if you dont say it specificly you are at risk !!!!


Hebrews 13:3 - Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

What people don't realize is that you don't have to talk to police unless you get charged. You can always ask for a lawyer and refuse to talk to them, then they can't talk to you without the lawyer.
You can't change other people, you can only change how you react to them

Even after you are charged, all attorneys will tell you do not answer their questions. Demand an attorney, and say nothing. Even a seemingly very innocent question can be turned against you in a court room.
