The Miranda Warnings were established to protect the rights of suspects taken into custody–this includes the right to remain silent. No matter the questions posed, or general chit chat officers try to engage a suspect with, any statements said can be used to incriminate the suspect. A suspect should tell the officer that they invoke their right to stay silent and their right to an attorney, and then only converse with their attorney.
