Hey, are you going to talk about Salinas v. Texas and explicit invocation of the 5th? http://jurist.org/paperchase/2013/06/supreme-court-rules-accused-must-invoke-fifth-amendment-privilege.php
quote: “In Thomas’ view, “Salinas’ claim would fail even if he had invoked the privilege because the prosecutor’s comments regarding his precustodial silence did not compel him to give self-incriminating testimony.”
Is just me, or is that really scary and begging to be abused?
Let’s try not to get too far ahead, now, guys.
I was gonna ask if this is a double-standard, since you don’t need to invoke the (Miranda) right to remain silent. But I recalled that people explicitly state (roughly) “I plead the 5th” when in court.
Two different situations. Keep reading.
Actually, it’s now been determined you MUST say you are remaining silent in an interrogation, too.
Gotta say, love this art style!
