This guy knows his rights. This happened in Homestead, Florida last year. Watch to the end.
Here is the news story on the incident. It seems that they were investigating a car burglary where a firearm was stolen. The police knocked on his door and began asking questions. The homeowner wisely refused to answer, which the police then claimed was reasonable suspicion that he had committed a crime and told him that he was detained.
When the man’s wife arrived, he told her not to answer questions and to just go inside. The police told her that she wasn’t allowed to enter her own house, but also admitted that she was not being detained. They said that they were going to get a warrant for the house and didn’t want her entering. The basis for the warrant? The owner exercised his right to remain silent. When they begin asking questions, his response is “I don’t want to answer any questions,” to which the cop responds: “Bingo.”
It’s hard for me to understand how exercising your right to remain silent is somehow an indication that you are committing a crime and can be used as evidence that you are committing a crime. This is a clear violation of both the Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights of this man.
