The ruling brings into question the future of Miranda rights. Essentially Thursday’s ruling implies that any conversation, coerced or voluntary, taken in the absence of Miranda, can be used against a defendant in a court of law.
Thursday’s ruling is a threat to the Fitfh Amendment, which states that “no person . . . shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself.” It also “permits a person to refuse to testify against himself at a criminal trial in which he is a defendant” and “also ‘privileges him not to answer official questions put to him in any other proceeding, civil or criminal, formal or informal, where the answers might incriminate him in future criminal proceedings.'”
Never say anything to a cop without a lawyer being present.
What you say can be used against you in court regardless of whether you were read your Miranda Warning before giving a statement.
You may think it's just a friendly chat to clear up stuff.
But you are potentially incriminating yourself. Shut up.
This is especially true when involved in a shooting.
Shut up. Ask for a lawyer.
