    Supreme Court rules that police can ad lib Miranda warnings

    Washington Police officers are not required to use exact, cookie-cutter phrasing while advising criminal suspects of their right to have a lawyer present with them throughout a police interrogation, the US Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.
    In a 7-to-2 decision, the high court sought to clarify the rule requiring issuance of so-called Miranda warnings to suspects who are about to be questioned by police.
    Writing for the majority, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that police agencies need not repeat the precise wording used by federal agents in pre-interrogation warnings. The key, she said, is that the suspect be given adequate advice covering all the Miranda protections.
    “The four warnings Miranda requires are invariable, but this court has not dictated the words in which the essential information must be conveyed,” Justice Ginsburg wrote.

    1.You have the right to remain motionless, or you may elect to run away from me.
    2. Should you decide to run, I shall direct my K-9 to chase you down to the ends of the earth.
    3. You have a right to have your lawyer run with you. Should he refuse, a recent Law School Graduate will be appointed by the court to jog along with you.
    4. If while running you suddenly decide to end the race, be aware that my K-9 may or may not understand your intentions and may continue his pursuit of you in full stride.
    5. You may stop running at anytime at your own risk.
    6. Good luck. On your mark, get set...GO!

    You have the right to shut the f*#k up.
    SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    I have the right to make you remain silent
    Anything you say will make me try that much harder to make you remain silent
    I have the right to complain that you have the right, to be provided, by my tax dollars, a sub human con person that is not interested in the slightest with justice only technicalities, plea bargins and a pay check. Commonly referred to as a Defense Attorney. I pray that my ADA doesn't moon light as one.
    I have the right not to ask you any questions at all. I have the right not to talk to you period.
    I have the right to laugh at you if you spontaneously make any statements that directly implicates you in your crime that you are telling me you didn't do.
    I have the right to be amused and somewhat satisfied if we actually go to court, have a trial, and you are convicted. I especially have the right to excuse myself from your trial to go outside the courtroom and laugh till I piss my pants because you said something stupid at your trial that directly implicates you in your crime and your con man attorney says no further questions and quits.
    And finally I have the right to be proud if your victim finishes testifying, exits the stand, and gives you the bird.
    Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me
