I need to respond to this in 300-400 words in A.P.A. format with at least 2 scholary sources.

After being read Miranda rights, personally no one is obligated to speak to the police. However even body language can in some situations, be incriminating. Green (2014) states, “Courts have found that suspects don’t have to be read their rights upon arrest, but only right before they are interrogated. And there can be a long lag time between the two” (p.2) Nothing that anyone says will be considered as truthful solely because the police are so accustomed to people lying to them as a reflexive action. The police are trying to interrogate you anytime they are on the scene to see what you will say to give them evidence to use against you. The officer isn’t genuinely trying to figure out a way to justify letting you go. What the officer is really doing is trying to figure out a way to justify arresting someone.

According to Proverbs 17:28 (King James Version) [KJV], “Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.” My mom raising me always told me it is better to say nothing at all than to say that shows our ignorance. Picturing clearly about Jesus during the time he was arrested when answering all of the false charges brought up against him. He remained silent up until Pilate said he could possibly be released Jesus responded according to John 19:11 (KJV) “You would have no authority over me at all unless it has been given you from above.” Meaning it all took part in the sovereign will of God. Briones (2010) claims, “Practical effect is that police, in the face of silence can continue to question hours after to get a confession.”
