right to remain silent

Sat, Jan 24: KNOW YOUR RIGHTS Training


Do you know what to do if you're stopped by the police?

Are you tired of your rights being violated?

This workshop focuses on what to do when you are stopped "on the street", in a vehicle, or anywhere you might interact with some type of police. We will talk about what your rights are, how cops try to trick you out of them, and practical ways to assert your rights. We want to share strategies and empowering education on how to survive police encounters.

Will Cops Be Required to Tell You Explicitly That You Have a Right To Have A Lawyer Present During Any Questioning?

This is an older article, and the court did not decide to make the cops tell you more when they are drilling you.  No matter what the courts change or don't , always assert "I choose to remain silent and I want to see a lawyer."  Then, say nothing else. Cops don't have to give a Miranda warning, anyway, until you're arrested and they want to further question you.  Know Your Rights!

Supreme Court Miranda Ruling: Suspects Must Explicitly Tell Police They Want To Remain Silent

The case is Berghuis v. Thompkins, 08-1470.   CLICK HERE for the Supreme Court Ruling

Want to invoke your right to remain silent? You'll have to speak up.

In a narrowly split decision, the Supreme Court's conservative majority expanded its limits on the famous Miranda rights for criminal suspects on Tuesday – over the dissent of new Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who said the ruling turned Americans' rights of protection from police abuse "upside down."

Cops Lie: Know Your Rights

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TALK TO THE POLICE, FBI, DA OR ANY OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENT OR INVESTIGATOR.

Their job is to Collect or Create Information to arrest you and help prosecute you. They’re not trying to win justice or help you.
