Goodbye Miranda Rights https://www.thenation.com/article/society/supreme-court-miranda-rights/
you know it took a bit longer than I expected for the Trump-appointed supreme court to settle into full-on-terrifying-mode but good to know that WHY AM I WRITING THIS IN THIS PATTERN OF SPEECH IT'S NOT GOOD TO KNOW OR GOOD FOR ANYONE
@cwebber It's almost like they're warming up... You know, stretching a bit before ramping up to the even bigger decisions.
@cwebber this is not an entirely accurate article from what I read elsewhere.
«The justice couldn’t be much clearer: He and his conservative colleagues think Miranda and Dickerson are wrong but aren’t yet willing to spend the political capital necessary to overrule them.»
«By leaving Miranda on the books (for now), Vega still requires courts to suppress un-Mirandized statements during trial. As Kagan noted, though, sometimes “such a statement will not be suppressed. And sometimes, as a result, a defendant will be wrongly convicted and spend years in prison.” Eventually, the defendant may get his conviction reversed. But thanks to Thursday’s decision, he will have no remedy “for all the harm he has suffered.”»
@joeyh Okay, that's a much better article. But it does undermine a whole lot of it. It's very, very bad.
