The U.S. Supreme Court sometimes makes new law and I don’t notice.

In this case, apparently they ruled that, confronted by police, in order to have your 5th Amendment right to remain silent honored, you must speak.  Apparently you must speak and affirmatively invoke your right to be silent and to have an attorney.  You cannot just sit quietly.    This article summarizes the situation.  Pay attention. These are your rights and you must know what they are in order to claim them.

this blog post has a wonderful discussion of what Salinas could do to you.  Read it and pay attention.  It also illustrates the dangers of talking to the police, even a little bit.  Bottom line:  Don’t talk to  the police. Even A Little Bit.
