    Miranda v. Arizona isn’t quite so broad as the discussion made it. Everyone has a 5th Amendment right not to give evidence against him/herself, but in general if you want to exercise your constitutional rights, it’s on you to say so. The Miranda decision said that there were some circumstances inherently so intimidating that it was necessary for law enforcement to advise people of their right not to give coerced confessions. Cops DO NOT have to give persons the Miranda warnings unless the two coercive circumstances are both present: the person is IN CUSTODY, and the person is being QUESTIONED BY A STATE ACTOR. If someone volunteers information, that can be used against that person whether or not the person is in custody. And if a person is not in custody, cops can ask questions, and if the person answers those questions, the cops can use those answers against the person. So if a person is in jail and a fellow prisoner (not a snitch paid by the cops) asks what h’es in for, his answers can be used against him even without Miranda being given. Moral: Don’t tell cops anything more than you must. They are not your friends. They are trained to gather evidence of wrongdoing.

    1. Thank you for the clarification. I’ll be sure to include it in the next episode.
