Highlight

The U.SConstitution forbids the routine use of visible physical restraints during the guilt phase of a criminal trial, unless the use is justified by an essential state interest.
The Sixth Amendment Confrontation Clause does not require exclusion of non-testimonial statements.
Miranda warnings carry an implicit assurance that silence will not carry a penalty, and the State may not use a criminal defendant's post-Miranda silence at trial against him.
