That's stupid. You don`t have the right to remain silent only after they tell you you do, you have it, period, all the time. They are also not required to read you your rights (eg: Hollywood: if they don`t, the guy that just shot up heroin while slaughtering nuns in the middle of the policeman`s ball ... has to be set free ... nuhuh).

The ONLY two things you should EVER say to a police officer are:
1] Am I free to go?
2] I want a lawyer.

Don't even help police! If you provide information as a witness, you will eventually be accused of committing the crime since you obviously know so much about it.

F[u]ck the police. Slam the door in their faces.
They`ll get a warrant if they have a valid reason to talk with you.

Bottom line either answer the questions the cops ask you or shut up and hire a lawyer. If I remember correctly, you CAN agree to answer questions and at any point ask for an attorney but then you have to shut up! If you keep on talking while you wait for them to show up then anything you say is admissible.

However, he wasn't even under arrest! I would ask "Am I under arrest? If I`m not, I would like to leave right now please." At which point they can either mirandize me (and I then invoke my right to remain silent AND obtain legal counsel) or they let me go.

Your reasoning is impeccable blackcatseye. Please tell us again how sheep's bladders can be used to prevent earthquakes.

This is why the police caution changed in England and Wales in 1994, so all you are proving is that yet AGAIN, the US is at least a decade behind the rest of (sentient) humanity. And by the fuss you are all making on this page I can see you will have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the same century as the rest of us, AGAIN. Get over yourselves and grow up.
