Actually, it's only recent that cops have been getting away with not reading Miranda rights. When Miranda v Arizona first got decided, it was debated whether cops would need to read the rights from a card each time or a memorized approach would be acceptable.

My father is a criminal attorney. I learned my Miranda when I was three.

But yeah, it's true: don't talk to oinks. Just don't. You're giving away your privacy. They can process you, and they'll ask you questions. Make clear that you will speak once your lawyer is present. Provide that name.

Don't have a lawyer? Know one.
