The complicity of the black-robes in the modern American police state.

These are the hallmarks of the emerging American police state: where police officers, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, are part of an elite ruling class dependent on keeping the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens. A review of the Supreme Court’s rulings over the past 10 years, including some critical ones this term, reveals a startling and steady trend towards pro-police state rulings by an institution concerned more with establishing order and protecting government agents than with upholding the rights enshrined in the Constitution.

Giving your ID isn't giving up your fifth. The key is that you actually have to ASSERT your right vocally. Ironic as it is, SCOTUS says that simply remaining silent isn't actual exercise. First you must declare exercise and then you must exercise. Say you intend upon exercising your fifth THEN shush.

Take Illinois as example. If driving, you have NO CHOICE but to hand over license and insurance. My out have NO CHOICE but to undergo DUI tests too. Refusal to do any of these results in license suspension as part of the "agreement" to drive. But even here, vocally declaring the fifth means cops gotta suck it up. Nutin they can do if you know your rights....
