Miranda Warnings Don’t Matter

From the Panama City News Herald this local color – Man to police: You ‘missed it;’ I’ve sold all my weed

CRESTVIEW — Police executing a search warrant were told by the suspect they had “missed it” and he had just sold all of his marijuana, according to a Crestview Police Department arrest report.

When officers stopped Justin Ray Smith, 19, on April 17, he said he had sold “somewhere between one to three pounds about six hours ago,” the report said. They recovered about $2,700, of which $1,100 was from that sale, Smith told officers, according to the report.

You tell them. They see it on TV. It doesn’t matter – they still talk. Never underestimate the power of stupid.

In their flagging of incidents of bad timing by Republicans on volcano monitoring and flu pandemics people forget the pièce de résistance: “On Sept. 10, Attorney General John Ashcroft rejected a proposed $58 million increase in financing for the bureau’s counterterrorism programs.”

That was September 10, 2001.

Well, “No one could have imagined …” et cetera ad nauseam.
