"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Miranda rights are for all criminal suspects, with no exceptions for the worst of the worst.
IMO, we lose nothing by reading them their rights. I doubt that Mirandizing them, or not, will change the likelihood of them talking.
Mirandizing them takes away from them one legal loophole that they could otherwise exploit if they are convicted and put away for good (which I hope happens). They won't be able to have their convictions overturned on the technicality that they weren't advised of their legal rights.
I'm all for this, because I want these creeps put away for good if they get convicted.
Miranda Rights in this is USA Miranda Rights applied in 1966.....Not stuff that might kinda be..
...btw the European Union is not a nation.
1. The USA rules the world and everyone on it is their subjects.
2. US law applies in the USA. Iranian law in Iran, German Law in Germany, etc.
One thread many of you say the USA has no right t do that to x over there..in this one you say they not only have it everyone has to accept it.
You and many others don't make sense. You have two wildly different realities depending on the threads subject.
Miranda Rights are read to AMERICAN CITIZENS. If we are reading these to non-citizens and enemy combatants, then doesnt that in effect, make them citizens?
Anyways, here is Obama on Miranda Rights back during the campaign:
Obama's Reversal on Terrorist Miranda Rights - Hannity - FOXNews.com
Compare that to what is happening right now.PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Do these folks deserve Miranda rights? Do they deserve to be treated like a shoplifter down the block? Of course not.
Illegal Immigrants in Afghanistan?

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney present during questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you. Do you understand these rights?
Call it what you will, this is what is read to you if you are arrested in the PHILLIPINES. Miranda is not an American concept, only the name is.
