As SamNavy posted on post #2 the Miranda warning is kinda moot based upon this ruling.

The Miranda warning states "You have the right to remain silent." What it does not say is "You have the right to invoke your fifth amendment right to remain silent; but only if you do so verbally. You do not have the right to simply remain silent in the absence of that declaration. Mere silence will be held against you in a court of law as well as anything you do choose to say."
