Are law enforcement officers aware of the ‘Miranda Rights’, or will choosing to remain silent cause me further trouble with law enforcement?
The officers are well trained and well equipped and know your constitutional rights. Their job is to find out as much as they can before you remember your Constitutional right to remain silent.
An officer may tell you “it will go better if you tell me about it right now.” You might be tempted to try to explain your way out of whatever situation you are in. You have a right, right then, to remain silent.
You can give them your name and your address. The next question that the officer asks you, you may reply with ” I prefer to remain silent.” If the officer asks you more questions, just tell them that you want a lawyer.
