At least the TSA has detained a bunch of babies, I guess
ANyone find it a little iffy how the media as been giving this guy repeated hints on how he could have made his bomb better over the last couple of days?
Congressional Republicans want to know whether the Pakistani-born American arrested in the Times Square car bombing plot was read his Miranda rights, with Sen. John McCain saying it would be a 'serious mistake' if the suspect was reminded of his right to remain silent.
Keep calm and carry on, or as they say in New York: 'Fuhgedaboudit.'
The Miranda Rights rule is basically that you cannot use in a court of law anything said by a person under arrest until the Miranda Rights have been read.
I thought the rule was that the police couldn't use anything the suspect said in response to questioning, while if they just up and decided to start blabbering on about their criminal activity without any suggestion from the police that such statements could be used in court.
evidence must have been gathered
the evidence must be testimonial
the evidence must have been obtained while the suspect was in custody
the evidence must have been the product of interrogation
the interrogation must have been conducted by state-agents and
the evidence must be offered by the state during a criminal prosecution.
