+ - SCOTUS uproots Miranda Rights->

Submitted by phyrebyrd
phyrebyrd (631520) writes "The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Tuesday along its ideological divide a suspect must unequivocally claim his right to remain silent in order to have that right... From the dissent: "Today's decision turns Miranda upside down. Criminal suspects must now unambiguously invoke their right to remain silent — which, counter-intuitively, requires them to speak. At the same time, suspects will be legally presumed to have waived their rights even if they have given no clear expression of their intent to do so.""
