Scratch the 5th amendment off the list along with the 1st, 2nd and 4th, 8th, 9th and 10th.
Before you read my comments, please read the following quote regarding this SC ruling:
“In a major loss for individual rights vis-a-vis the police, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that prosecutors could use a person’s silence against them in court if it comes before he’s told of his right to remain silent.”
Have you got that? If you remain silent before you are mirandized, that silence could be used against you to prove your guilt. So the only logical thing you can do is declare your 5th amendment right immediately when engaged by a cop for any reason. A cop asks you a question. If you ignore him and don’t respond, that silence can be used against you. If you immediately say “I invoke my 5th amendment rights” what is going to happen next? The cop is going to use the fact that you won’t risk incriminating yourself as reason to assume you are hiding something illegal and use your 5th amendment statement as a sign of guilt. Your right to remain silent is “generally not self-executing” according to our masters.
Got it yet? If your head hurts that’s because you have a functional brain. Now let me sum it up: THEY ARE OUT TO FUCK YOU. THEY WILL GET YOU IF THEY WANT TO. Your guilt or innocence does not matter. If you refuse to speak to them they will be able to arrest you. Your rights have been further usurped. It can’t be stated any simpler than that. In America today, there is no true “law”, only government at various levels mandating compliance through regulations and statutes. A dissident critical thinking citizen is the enemy of the state and enemies must be squashed. The system of law(s) we live with today is not to protect you or your rights, it is there to empower them so they can more thoroughly victimize and assault you.
And for people that spew statements like “I have nothing to hide so I don’t have a problem talking to the police”:
Brought to you by the same Supreme Court Jesters who granted ‘personhood’ to corporations and rubber-stamped Obamacare. These are the faces of 9 truly evil humans.
Only in a truly Orwellian dystopia can an act of silence be used as an admission of guilt. And to top it all off, when you are arrested for not talking and/or exercising your 5th amendment right to not incriminate yourself which will be used against you, the cop can also take a sample of y our DNA without your consent or a warrant (thanks again to SC Jesters). When things like this come down from “Mt Olympus” I am amazed I don’t get an aneurysm.
Remember this story, the revelations shared by Ed Snowden and the many similar stories when you are being bombarded with propaganda about all our “freedoms” and collective “greatness.” It is nothing but a thin veneer covering a fly-covered pile of bullshit.

Supreme Court Decision Shreds 5th Amendment Protection; Your Silence Can Now Be Used As Evidence of Guilt
Is an illusion of civil liberties all that is left? It has seemed that way for quite some time, as all the evidence piling up points to that conclusion. Here is the latest to that effect:
In a major loss for individual rights vis-a-vis the police, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that prosecutors could use a person’s silence against them in court if it comes before he’s told of his right to remain silent. The prosecutors used the silence of Genovevo Salinas to convict him of a 1992 murder. Because this was an non-custodial interview, the Court ruled that the prosecutors could use his silence even though citizens are allowed to refuse to speak with police. It is little surprise that the pro-police powers decision was written by Samuel Alito who consistently rules in favor of expanding police powers…
This ruling will likely open up an entire area of new prosecutorial arguments using silence as evidence of guilt. It is a major blow to the rights of citizens — and a telling addition to the troubling judicial legacy of Alito.
