There is a reason they say "anything you say can AND WILL be used against you."
That's just it, they are notified that "anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law." That's the whole right to remain silent (Miranda rights???), plead the 5th and all that jazz.

It's a choice they have to make. If they choose to not be quiet (without a lawyer present), then they give up that right. Even a fool appears wise if he keeps his mouth closed.
