不要侵犯自己的权利-别对警察说什么

您've heard it: "You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and 将 be used against you. 您 have the right to an attorney, if you cannot afford one, one 将 be appointed to you."自从50年前创立以来,米兰达警告的某些变体已经无数次出现在电视和电影中。如果你曾经被捕,你'我曾经有人背诵过你。

从技术上讲这是什么意思?

Technically, only the first sentence applies to your Fifth Amendment rights. The second sentence is a statement of your Sixth Amendment rights: 您r right to legal counsel. But the two go hand in hand and without demanding your Sixth Amendment rights, you could very well lose your Fifth Amendment rights altogether.

对警察说的最重要的事情是?没有。如果您被军官拘留,请说出您的姓名以供识别。如果警官试图让您参与对话,请礼貌而坚定地陈述,"我选择在没有律师的情况下不与您说话."

如果我再说什么会怎样?

如果您还有其他话,请放心, be used in court against you. And something that seems benign to you may, in fact, get you convicted. 您 may think it is fine to admit you were at a party where illegal drugs were being used. After all, you don'做毒品,你什么也没有藏起来。但是您的录取将您置于犯罪现场。人们仅凭这些信息就被定罪。

仅仅因为警察读过您的权利并不意味着他会尊重他们。这个负担在您和您自己身上。军官将使用从友好的语气到敌对的威胁的任何内容来尝试使您交谈。他们知道除非您声明,"我选择在没有律师的情况下不与您说话",您是公平的游戏。他们'会成为您的新好朋友:他们了解,他们知道您不认识'不要使用海洛因,他们只是想知道海洛因在发生时是否在那里。它'是一款严酷的游戏,不是您要玩的游戏。因为你会输。每次。

但是我可以't afford an attorney

您 don't need to. 您 don'甚至不需要马上就拥有一个。您可能需要几天才能见到法官-想想在假日周末被捕而法院没有'直到星期二才重新开会-您可能被关在监狱里等待被任命为法律顾问。

It's lonely in jail. 您 may want someone to talk to--that's only natural. 您're scared, you'担心但是侦探知道这一点。他知道你'再脆弱。易受伤害的人自欺欺人。唐'不说话。不要打电话给你妈妈,如果女朋友来拜访你的女朋友,或者与你一起入狱的任何人。沉默是金。

练习10个简单的单词:"我选择在没有律师的情况下不与您说话."立即练习。将它们提交给内存。说出它们,直到它们成为第二天性为止,直到您可以尽可能容易地背诵它们的名字和住址为止。练习-这样您就可以保护自己并保护自己的未来。
