"Time to update TV Shows", Supreme Court.

 You know that line in most cop shows... 

The wording used when a person is read the Miranda Warning, also known as being 'Mirandized,' is clear and direct: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law."

Well that is still required-ish. I mean it is required, but if the cops do NOT give them, no harm no foul. You know, except for the person convicted for a false confession.

Their reasoning, which overturns decades of precedence, says that you can't sue the police that do not give the warning. And you are allowed to stay silent, but the police don't have to tell you that. 

The highlight part is what the Supreme Court has said, "Maybe, maybe not."
