Understand when your 'Miranda' rights actually apply

Your "Miranda" warnings are actually just pointed reminders of your Fifth Amendment Constitutional rights, including your right to refuse to answer when the police ask you questions. You are also reminded that if you do choose to talk to investigators, they will record everything you say and use it against you in court if possible. You are also reminded that you have the right to an attorney to help mount your defense in court -- even if you can't afford a private one.
