    to think that because they haven't been told they can remain silent, they can't remain silent? What if he remains silent? What's the purpose of not reading his rights? It's just a trick? Doesn't sound right to me. Sounds like a legal excuse to engage in some "enhanced" questioning. Which, if done, could lead to his being set loose because his confession was obtained under duress.

    Seem stupid to not read him his rights.

      Hope the guy doesn't realize/remember his rights.

      questioning.  It just isn't.  It IS absolutely a trick.  If he remains silent, he remains silent.  They can't TELL him he has to talk.

      And he isn't going to be set loose, because they have so much other evidence proving his guilt that his confession would be irrelevant.
