  1. It's a slooow burn, but HBO's The Night Of is engrossing. Watch the pilot for all the great setups that will be paid off later.

      The 5th amendment right against self-incrimination includes the right to not have a prosecutor try to insinuate guilt from silence or requesting counsel.

      Very interesting. Especially the part about refusing to talk never being brought up in court. Seems like it's always insinuated in movies and television just how bad you'll look for requesting a lawyer.

      Yeah, the right against self-incrimination and the right to counsel are huge so anything that even begins to challenge exercising them (e.g., refusing to talk or requesting an attorney) doesn't come in. And if the prosecutor tries to slip it in, that's grounds for mistrial or being overturned on appeal. It's a very serious thing that police/prosecutors shouldn't mess with.
