I wonder why the law does not require defendants to testify in their trial. This makes no sense to me. I understand that the 5th Amendment gives people the right to not testify against themselves. But if their testimony is incriminating, doesn't that mean they're guilty of something?
Maybe we should do away with the part of the 5th Amendment that says one should not be "compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself", but still keep the spirit of it -- force them to at least go up on the stand. If they don't want to answer any particular questions, they would still have the right to say "I don't want to answer that because it will incriminate me". The jury can decide how to interpret that.
