Miranda Made Clear
Orin Kerr covers much the same ground that I tried to cover with my post yesterday, but does a far better job of explaining why there’s no reason to get in a rage about the suggestion that the FBI ought not have immediately Mirandized the would-be Times Square bomber.
Kerr also points out that the FBI apparently did engage in precisely the sort of strategic calculation that I hypothesized would be appropriate in my post. Kerr’s post makes for a fantastic primer on the nature of Miranda rights, and it should answer most of the questions I wasn’t able to get around to answering in comments yesterday.
H/T to Lukas in the comments for the pointer (despite his HTML fail).
