We have heard politicians and famous people exercise their Constitutional
Right to Remain Silent. This is because that anything you say can and
will be used against you in court of law.
Most citizens usually believe that if you say exercise your right to remain
silent, you are guilty. Nothing could be further from the truth. As an
Oakland Police Officer, after advising them of their Miranda Right, I
would ask them if they wanted to talk to me. Virtually every person agreed
to waive their Miranda rights and talk to me. Usually this was not in
their best interest.
In our law office, we counsel people all the time that most people should
exercise for constitutional right to remain silent. It is also agreed
that politicians and famous people were correct in exercising their right
to remain silent and not talk to government officials, e.g., usually police.
