“You have the right to remain silent…”

But not before they tell you you do!

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court says prosecutors can use a person’s silence against them if it comes before he’s told of his right to remain silent.

Yep.  We live in the bizzaro world...

  1. As Norm MacDonald would say, “Wait, What?!”

    Pretty terrifying that Samuel Alito, John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Antonin Scalia all think that constitutional rights only apply “sometimes”!!!!!

    You are right, Bizzaro World indeed!!!

  3. So the advice about not speaking to LEOs at all must be preceded by the statement, “I invoke my 5th Amendment right to remain silent.” Crazy.

    Of course, you know what comes next: we’ll have to ask permission to invoke the “right”.
