recently, i’ve been thinking about my Miranda Rights. i hear them often on late night Law and Order reruns, but i never really think about them, about what they mean. i decided to look them up so i’d be well prepared if i ever find myself in handcuffs.
“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. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”
