You Have The Right To Remain Silent

Question: What exactly does it mean when an officer says, "You have the right to remain silent?”

Answer: I would say it means it’s worthless to you unless you use it. You have a right, use it—remain silent. I heard a comedian say one time, “I had the right to remain silent, I just didn’t have the ability.” And while you may say it seems funny—and it is funny—it’s not. This is a Constitutional right and it is of value to us only when we use it.
