"Mr. Powell, don't you worry. I watched Matlock in a bar last night. The sound wasn't on, but I think I got the gist of it."

What an absurd requirement to begin with. This asshole had 10 prior convictions. If he didn't know and understand his Miranda rights then he should just be shot cuz he's too farkin stupid to breathe.

So I get to call the cop a pig and suffer no consequences. I mean it does mean the same as calling him a cop because he knows who I'm talking to.

This is not surprising or new at all, most police agencies have had their own version of the Miranda warning since it went into effect.

Powell was a convicted felon with 10 prior offenses and could not lawfully be in possession of a firearm.

You know what? I'm pretty sure he knows what his god damn rights are, BECAUSE HE'S BEEN READ THEM NEARLY A DOZEN TIMES BEFOREHAND.

I hope that's not part of the problem. What if every cop since the first conviction thought, "oh, well I read him his miranda rights last week so I'll just kind of fark around with them now, no big deal."? Miranda rights are SIMPLE and necessary. If he's not being read them then the cops need to be fired.

I have the right to maim or kill anyone attempting to to limit my activities up to the limit of my abilities or the epitome of theirs. You don't convene a grand jury for a mosquito or taser a tsunami; law enforcement has its roots in "we could gather up a bunch of people and hunt you down but let's neither of us go to all that effort, because we'll both be better off if we don't".

The legal system is so baroque and divorced from reality anymore that it relies on a passive and uncaring populace; who do not care to ask themselves what they as watery bags of meat could do or those who say they can't do it could do to stop them.

/ Don't call the cops for your "noisy neighbors" complaint, set the bastards on fire.

I got arrested for DUI once and refused the breathalyzer. The cop got all hinky and started demanding to know where I had been and where I was going and blah blah blah. I invoked my right to remain silent and asked for a lawyer and he went stone cold on me. He charged me with four bogus traffic violations.

It cost me $500 but no DUI, and since I didn't have any priors (in that state) I was put on diversion so the record was expunged after a year and my insurance premiums didn't increase. Hell yea, use those rights people.

Does anyone in possession of a television since the seventies not know the Miranda warning by heart already? At least as performed by at least one cop in at least one episode of every show containing at least one cop since the farking warning was created.

"You have the right to remain silent, if you give up that right anything you say can be used against you in a court of law.

You have the right to have an attorney present during questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed for you.

Do you understand these rights as I have explained them to you?"

Sorry... they usually fade out half-way through... kind of like the perps themselves. Does COPS even show the Miranda? What else is on?

UsikFark: Does COPS even show the Miranda?


No, because cops almost never actually issue them. They're only required when you're 1) In custody AND 2) being interrogated.

Since COPS usually features the local drunk who clearly did it, theres no reason to question him.

What do the Miranda warning have to do with that? And no, I didn't I'm actually in the Criminal Justice field, and have my undergrad in CJ.

Well, seeing as the farking Miranda warning is mentioned throughout the video (including at the very beginning) because both the video and the warning pertain to the Fifth Amendment... oh, nevermind, you're right.
 
2010-02-24 01:27:51 AM  
Justice Stevens is the only one who got it right, the US Supreme court had no reason to overturn the Florida Supreme court's ruling. Florida should be used to the US supreme court having all disregard for it's rights under the US constitution, so it's not that big of a deal. That being said.

If the cop says before questioning "The government advises you to remain silent during all questioning and to obtain a lawyer, we'll even pay for the lawyer. THere is no reason, legal or otherwise, to cooperate", that should suffice. Same substance, different wording.

Ofcs. Colin, Ryan and Kathryn Greenwood do a ped stop on suspect Wayne Brady.

"Laws, we don't need no stinking laws. You have the right to remain injured, (sound of punches) You have the right to be tasered, you have the right to a doctor, if you can't afford a doctor, one will be made available to you (eventually). Truncheon thuds. You have the right to be unconscious. Do you understand these rights ? Boots stomping.

But officers, all I did was stop for the red light......

Shut up.
