Supreme Court bars reading 'Miranda' rights after suspect confesses

"The Supreme Court ruled Monday that police officers cannot use a tactic that detractors have dubbed the 'Missouri two-step' to elicit confessions from suspects before advising them of their right to remain silent."

"In a 5-4 decision, the justices ruled that investigators cannot question a suspect twice - once before the so-called Miranda warning is given - and use a confession from the earlier interrogation to extract an admissible confession in the second."
-------

So 4 out of 5 Justices feel that interrogating a suspect without informing them of their rights is perfectly fine. And somehow we aren't headed towards police-statehood?

"Heavily armed robbers struck a Washington, D.C., bank this morning -- the sixth bank robbery in the area that authorities have attributed to the group, D.C. police said." ...

"No one was injured. Police officials have expressed concern about the sophisticated nature of the robberies and the amount of firepower the thieves are carrying."

"WTTG-TV (Channel 5) showed video of a masked man carrying an assault rifle, crouching outside a minivan parked alongside the bank. A few seconds later, two other men -- also masked and carrying automatic rifles -- ran out of the bank. One stumbled but recovered before falling to the ground." ...

Notice how the media are calling the full-auto guns "assault rifles", perhaps hoping people will confuse them with "assault weapons".

"Major civil-rights legislation reaches its tenth anniversary one month from today, and prospects for a vigorous future seem strong, according to industry experts. 'None of the hoplophobic (weapon-fearing) horror stories released ten years ago turned out to be true,' said Alan Korwin, author of The Arizona Gun Owner's Guide. 'Widespread reports about impending shootouts in traffic or in restaurants can now be seen, in 20/20 hindsight, as virtually delusional, or just tasteless anti-rights bigotry,' he observed." ...

"U.S. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer held a joint news conference in San Francisco Tuesday morning to call attention to the struggle to renew Feinstein's federal assault weapons ban, which is set to expire Sept. 13."

"The ban was Feinstein's response to the tragedy that occurred 11 years ago this week in which a man opened fire with an assault weapon at 101 California St., killing eight people and injuring six."

"It was signed into law 10 years ago by former President Bill Clinton as part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, but Feinstein said today prospects for its renewal are bleak." ...

"As a presidential candidate in 1999, George W. Bush was outraged when a man used an assault weapon to wound three people at a California community center. 'It makes no sense for assault weapons to be around our society,' Bush said at the time, vowing to uphold a national ban on such weapons, which had been instituted five years earlier."

"Bush's words are now being put to a test in a way that could become a major campaign issue this autumn. The 1994 ban on assault weapons will expire at midnight on Sept. 13, unless the Republican-controlled Congress extends it and Bush signs the legislation." ...

"A letter has been circulating among Libertarians advocating supporting the Democrat in order to oust George W Bush from office. If you haven't seen it yet, you will. I'm not sure whether the author is a saboteur or just misguided, but no matter-he is wrong. Voting for or supporting Democrats is a sure-fire way to lose the freedom effort. There is no way a Libertarian should ever make that mistake. Both Republican and Democrat candidates will take our country in the wrong direction, neither being much better or worse than the other." ...

"THE gardai has deployed its helicopter to search an area of Monaghan near the border for a puma-like big cat with an Irish army sniper on standby to shoot the animal if it is spotted again."

"The presence of the jet black cat, which was reported to have been seen in the Tully area on the outskirts of Monaghan town yesterday, was today being treated seriously as the latest sighting was made near a large housing estate."

"In one of its most unusual missions to date, the Garda "eye in the sky" conducted an aerial sweep of the Tully area, where the animal was spotted by a local man and his wife on Sunday night and again yesterday at around 11.15am." ...

"South Africa's tough new gun control law could close down security firms, including armed response companies, gun owners told the Pretoria high court this week in a bid to stop the implementation of the new Firearms Control Act." ...

"The law also makes it compulsory for gun owners to carry a firearm licence, and failure to do so can result in 10 years imprisonment."

"Firearm owners are also obliged to carry an identity document with the firearm licence or face the prospect of a year in prison, and the firearms registry must be informed of a change of address within 30 days, or the owner can face a prison term."

"Failure to report personal details, such as a change in marital status, to the central firearms registry can be punished by a two-year jail term."

"However, problems at the central firearms registry, where officials nationwide are facing allegations of corruption, such as its failure to handle a backlog of 80 000 applications, has led many to question how it would handle the influx of licence renewals required by the new legislation." ...

So once the nanny-state permits you to exercise your right to self-defense, you have to depend on a government bureaucrat to properly file your paperwork, because if s/he doesn't, you face up to ten years in prison?!?

Sav was brought to the Capital by a police team. He is likely to be produced before a court."

"The police said that during the interrogation, it was revealed that Sav has no criminal background. He is a small-time shopkeeper in Mojahidpur village near Patna and the idea to make a pistol struck him all of a sudden. He said he has been working on it for many years. He wanted to make an indigenous, cheap weapon for self-defence of the common people.

There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
