Right to Remain Silent, Salinas v. Texas, 2013
The Right to remain silent is a permissible rule which provides a guarantee to any person having a right to refuse to answer questions from any law court official or administration representative. This legal right is acknowledged in many legal systems of the world either by convention or explicit. According to Bibas (2002).
The reason as to why I have chosen to provide a discussion about this case is because of the increased crime rate all over the world. With the increased cases of crimes, legal officers and security agents have intensified their operations bringing on board many suspects in custody concerning the crimes. And since a person is not guilty unless proven guilty, questioning from these officers towards the suspects is essential to prove their innocence or guilt. It is at this instance that such an individual has a right to choose from either remaining silent or providing a response.
In relation to the Right to remain silent is a case of Salinas v. Texas, which happened in 1992, in Houston. This case provides a clear incident where a right to silence was once applied. Since this right is acknowledged in many parts of the world, the enforcement officers could not have forced Salinas to respond to questions after she decided to remain silent. Also, no legal action could have been taken concerning his choice.
