What....so the Police can start an interrogation right then and there on the spot?
And yet, people cry about Al Sharpton and the POTUS and this stuff completely goes past them without a slightest bit of concern. It makes you wonder.
Also, to keep in the theme of things, you don't need the 5th amendment if you're innocent. Miranda rights are outdated If you've got nothing to hide, there's no reason to require them or the 5th amendment.
That's not new. A questioning can turn into an interrogation at any time. In certain cases, extraction of information.
That's not the ruling. The problem is he remained silent and they used the fact he remained silent against him. This has previously been inadmissible in court. They reversed previous rulings.
The Supreme Court is saying that unless you explicitly say "5th amendment", then your silence (the fact that you remained silent) is an admission of sorts. So... as an everyday citizen, you are required to understand (without a lawyer) that you have to explicitly invoke the 5th or your silence can be construed as an admission of guilt and they can present your silence to the jury. So...make sure you don't give them any signals in body language either or that's admissible in this case. ....pretty warped IMHO.

Yeah, that has nothing to do with your quote attempting to pin Hernandez as a malcontent as far back as his rookie year. He wasn't.
He was reportedly involved in a shooting while attending Florida. Failed many drug tests. Involved in gang activity in CT. Why do you think a first round talent falls into the 4th.. because of the drug tests alone? It was common knowledge he's had character concerns.. You should probably take your head out of the sand because you look pretty stupid right now.
Cried my eyes out during old yeller. Didn't shed a tear during the Texas Chain saw massacre.
AGREED. I don't think it's a very good example to be comparing two movies, but I get your point. As strange as it may sound, I get bothered far worse about matters of animal cruelty. It really hits home. I have a dog. A dog that I think the world of. If anyone were to hurt my pet, I don't know what I would do.
