So, You have a “Right.” What does that mean?
“Right” is that which is morally correct, just, or honorable. (“He doesn’t know the difference between right and wrong”).
A right is a moral or legal entitlement to have or obtain something or to act in a certain way. (“She had every right to be angry”) It is not something given to you and it is something that nobody can take away.
Your civil rights are guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and Amendments to the United States Constitution. They include the right to due process, equal treatment under the law of all people regarding enjoyment of life, liberty, property, and protection. Positive civil rights include the right to vote, the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a democratic society, such as equal access to public schools, recreation, transportation, public facilities, and housing, and equal and fair treatment by law enforcement and the courts.
Rights in criminal cases are also guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and Constitution. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated. It is guaranteed by the 4th Amendment. The violation of these rights results in the exclusion of improperly obtained evidence. Just say No!
The right against self incrimination is the 5th Amendment. You have a right to remain silent. Use it! Just say No!
I advise my clients:
“On the advice of my lawyer, I respectfully decline to answer on the basis of the Fifth Amendment, which- according to the United States Supreme Court -protects everyone, even innocent people, from the need to answer questions if the truth might be used to help create the misleading impression that they were somehow involved in a crime that they did not commit.”
Just say No!
No I will not speak with you.
No you may not search my person or property.
No you may not search my car or house.
No. just leave me alone.
