Miranda Rights~UPDATE~Children need to know!!

http://www.nolo.com/legal-update/staying-silent-not-enough-miranda-rights-33985.html

"In June 2010 the Supreme Court ruled that a suspect who stays silent and uncooperative after Miranda warnings are given has not invoked the right to remain silent. Some kind of simple but unambiguous statement is the key, the Court said in Berghuis v. Thompkins. In other words. you can effectively give up your Miranda rights by simply failing to invoke them while the police continue to question you."

A suggested card to carry in one's wallet, most especially children, and make sure they KNOW the miranda rights/updates, PLEASE read article above and to your children. See suggested card below
