Right to Silence

Postby Fenris » Tue Aug 12, 2008 9:21 pm

Here in the UK we once had a right to silence when questioned by the authorities. Now that is gone to the extent that failure to tell a policeman something you later rely on in court in your defence can be mentioned to the Jury and they are allowed to draw inferences from it.

Fine. I would sooner let them draw inferences than fall into the trap of talking without knowing the law. Follow the link and watch the videos:

Still believe the best thing to do is explain your actions?
