It is a Constitutional right to not incriminate yourself!
So many citizens have forgotten or never knew that it is their Constitutional right to remain silent. That right to remain silent is active right now! No particular other event has to occur to “turn on” the right.
The Miranda case set forth by the United States Supreme Court reminds us that there may come a time when the intensity of questioning between a citizen and law enforcement might rise to a level that the citizen has a privilege to be reminded of their right to remain silent. But the right already exists. The Miranda warnings don’t activate your privilege to remain silent, you already have it!
