Good.  American citizen on American soil.
 
2013-04-23 09:17:42 AM  
That's REALLY unna-merrkan!
 
2013-04-23 09:18:00 AM  
Good. That's one argument we won't have to listen to anymore.
 
2013-04-23 09:18:35 AM  
Now let's look at all the tremendous negative consequences this act has had:
 
2013-04-23 09:18:42 AM  
Mirandized?  Is that when they slowly and painfully peel the skin off your body to get a confession??

No, it's when they let you soak in barbecue sauce overnight.
 
2013-04-23 09:20:21 AM  
Government is under no obligation to Mirandize people. That's something people don't seem to comprehend.
 
2013-04-23 09:20:43 AM  
Miranda? I don't know the biatch!
 
2013-04-23 09:21:13 AM  
Good.

I didn't think this would have been an issue, but glad it is happening.

No, it's where you dose them with G-32 Paxilon Hydroclorate and hope to god they don't turn into a reaver

It's about damn time. I can't wait to hear the shiat the defense comes up with on this.
 
2013-04-23 09:24:46 AM  
Well, if his throat is injured forever, and he cannot talk, he's got that right to be silent one down.

So if a foreigner visits the U.S. and is accused of a crime, they don't have all the same rights of due process as an American citizen does?

Don't be ridiculous.  That's a waste of good BBQ sauce.  It will just burn and create char.  BBQ should only be applied in the last few minutes of a slow cook.  Or in the case of grilling, just long enough to caramelize the sugars in the BBQ sauce.

/Glad he was mirandized and sent to civilian court.  It can be dealt with sufficiently for justice and prove to the world this mutt was nothing special.

It is if they want to introduce any of his testimony for a criminal trial.
Anyone advocating they cut corners is more thinking about setting a bad precedent than trying to bury this guy.

/If he doesn't get the death penalty then he's going to be planted under the jail.
/He should get death.  I don't believe he feels a twinge of sorrow and would only spit in the survivors faces if they confronted him.
/There isn't a reason to keep him around once he's said his piece.
/But this isn't about him. Its about how criminal trials for other citizens get handled from now on.

From what I hear he is blaming everything on his dead brother.
 
2013-04-23 09:29:55 AM  
I really hate to see people get all worked up over the judicial process in this case. He is never going to be a threat to anyone again, and there is no amount of 'justice' on this Earth that can compensate the victims for what they will have to suffer through. It's disappointing to see the judicial process and timing of events in that process be used as yet another wedge issue.
 
2013-04-23 09:29:58 AM  
Good.
Now charge him with treason.
And after he's convicted, strip him of his citizenship.

That's weird. I thought law enforcement officers were required to read miranda rights to arrested suspects.

Anybody in West, TX been charged yet?
 
2013-04-23 09:30:25 AM  
Has it been released what the extent of his injuries were/are?

Yes. If they do not Mirandize him, they cannot use statements from an interrogation against him. But they may choose not to Mirandize him.

2013-04-23 09:31:17 AM  
Way good.  Not only is he an American citizen (which means that he has rights even if we SUPER don't like him), but this removes a potential avenue for pursuing a mistrial.  This dude is guilty as hell, and short of some kind of ASTOUNDING revelation he isn't going anywhere.  He will be executed or die in prison.

Yes, it means that when you are a Mexican caught speeding on I90 you won't get a speeding ticket.

Generally it's policy, but there is no legal obligation unless you want to submit evidence from an interrogation.
 
2013-04-23 09:31:49 AM  
well, it was probably more important to get him talking first. it's not like we don't have plenty of images, eye witnesses, evidence from running gun battles, and the like.

it'll probably be harder to find an impartial jury than to come up with evidence.
 
2013-04-23 09:33:26 AM  
Quick aside.

Foreigners, America sucks don't come we are crazy and have guns.

That investigation is going to take some time. Unfortunately, the owner is in his 80s (no idea about health) and currently under extreme stress, so there's more than a passing chance that he does not live to see the outcome of the investigation.

Yeah, but they won't be able to use any of the evidence they get during the trial until after Miranda.

He's right, as long as nothing he ever says to the cops is used as evidence at trial.
 
2013-04-23 09:35:16 AM  
Queue the right wing saying he shouldn't have been mirandized, his citizenship should be stripped, and he should be held and treated as an enemy combatant, and that Obama is going soft on terrorism never mind all the drones, in...

Wait, shiat, that already happened didn't it.

Basic rights in the legal system has absolutely nothing to do with citizenship.

The CEO hopped his corporate jet, you can bet on it.

That saga is a great testament to what is so farked up in the US and in Texas specifically.  When hundreds of people get flooded out of their homes then spending on them is wasteful.  When a corporation causes their own demise and takes half a town with it then it deserves government help.
