Malpractice: Admissions and the medical apology



If a police officer pulls you over—and you both know full well you were speeding—he or she typically asks, “Do you know why I stopped you?” The officer is trying to elicit an admission of guilt from you, such as, “But officer, I was only going eight miles over the limit.” That is self-incrimination, and as Miranda makes clear, you have the right to remain silent because what you say can and will be used against you.
