Miranda is like a middle-aged guardian angel looking out for all arrested individuals. Before the 1960s Miranda vs. Arizona case, there were no laws protecting the rights of arrested people. They could be interrogated under intimidating police methods that might lead to a false submission of guilt. This then would be used to put that innocent person in jail.
Today, the Miranda Rights must be read to those the police intend to interrogate.
“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”
The Miranda Rights protect self-incrimination and it is absolutely okay to refuse to be interrogated by police without an attorney. This refusal is also not incrimination within itself either.
