BULLSH*T. If they gave him his miranda rights and he has not given an option, they CAN use whatever he says against him. Unless he says after being mirandized, that he wants an attorney, THEN and only then will his words NOT be held against him.
Do you even watch court cases? I mean no insult here, but I honestly think you couldn't be watching how the system of justice works. If you are arrested (mirandized), handcuffed and placed in a cruiser, UNLESS you say that you want an attorney, anything that you say CAN be used against you.
Hell, even if you do say you want an attorney, but before you get an attorney by your side, you start talking, the prosecution will TRY to get that introduced as evidence.
It's easy really, you say here are your rights, now I have some questions for you do you want to answer them? They answer more offen then not

BTW, I appreciate the "Mr. Cheney" dig. Not only was it quite mature and witty, it manages to support your argument by . . . by . . .
Actually, I give up, I've got no clue how it supports your position. I'd ask you to tell me why you think it was useful, but I doubt you have any answer to give.
Bobby - you don't mind if I call you Bobby, do you - are you familiar with the Latin phrase ipse dixit? You do realize that simply repeating the conclusion you are arguing for isn't, in fact, a viable argument, right? I mean I've gone to the trouble of responding to you on the assumption that you were both possessed of a basic grasp of logic and interested in a meaningful discussion; if I was wrong on either count, just let me know.Terrorism carried out by individuals not authorized by and acting for a Nation State is not War.
Well, I guess if a random poster on a message board says so, without any argument to back it up, it must be true. I give up - you're right.But if you, like your good friend Mr. Bush, see it as War, and treat it like War, and demand everyone else call it War.....whelp, it's still not War.
It's still crime.
There is no "War" on Terrorism. There is no "War" of Drugs.
ha! I tried to get back to this thread on my desktop after posting from my phone, but couldn't find it. Little did I know it was the RGIII speaks out against Jason Collins thread. Typical internet.
At that point you have been advised of your miranda rights and you chose to say you did it. You also did not ask for an attorney. They can use that against you.
I sense you are not a criminal lawyer?
"A suspect is . . . 'in custody' for Miranda purposes when placed under formal arrest or when a reasonable person in the suspect's position would have understood the situation to constitute a restraint on freedom of movement of the degree which the law associates with formal arrest."
