Your Miranda Rights And Our Failed System

The system works for the rich, but not the poor. It is an outdated and broken system needing revision.

Facts point out that those with enough cash can get away with anything and those with little to no cash can wind up a fall guy so local police get credit for a closed case and untarnished records for their city.  This is another of many things that needs to be looked at for change because it is a failed system that does not work.  Whe you are arrested rightfully or wrongfully, it is the duty of the arrsting officer to quote you your Miranda Rights.

The first right is your right to remain silent.  "You have the right to remain silent.  If you give up that right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law."

This is a false right.  As police may quote this, but if you follow this right they often harass you and torment you.  In fact they have another crime they threaten you with if they so choose such as Abstruction of Justice and Withholding Information or Evidence as they put it.  SOme things are only there to cover and protect the authorities.  The authorities that do their jobs well are made to look bad by those who abuse their authority and fail to follow the rules of the laws that they are sworn to uphold.

The next right is your right to an attorney.  "You have the right to an attorney.  If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you."  Then they even go on to ask you if you understand these rights as they have read them to you.  Humorous fact for you is that it is the authorities that do not understand them.  If you have wealth and can afford an attorney, he or she will show up and actually defend you, whereas if you are poor or low income and receive the court appointed attorney you get what you pay for.  They do not defend you and find the best road to take in order to make the law enforcement or local DA (District Attorney) look good.

This may be a contraversial article, but I have a constitutional right to freedom of speech.  O.J. Simpson now brags about how he got away with murder, thus proving that if you have the money the system can be manipulated by the general public.  An example of a poor man going to jail for a crime he did not commit will be a local fellow I know and know the details of the case very well.  A friend of his was writing bad checks tha were stolen but nobody knew it at first.  He claimed he had no identification and asked each of his friends to cash checks for him that he claimed were his payment for work.  Each friend was not aware of the other who had been manipulated already.  It was the last and oldest friend that was detained at a bank when they kept his identification.  He remained willingly to speak to the officer and cooperated fully telling the officer everything he knew and even took a hand writing analysis while in jail to attempt to prove his innosence.  The officers were rude to him and after he had cooperated with them they told him that it was his hand writing and htat if he wanted to prove diferent that he would have to pay $2000 for ahand writing expert.

The point of htis is that they did not hire an hand writing expert for their analysis.  The arrested cooperated giving names and locations of where to find the individual handing out the stolen checks.  The police released him with a court date on the following day and let him walk home.  The others found attempting to cash the stolen checks were minors and no charges were presed against them.  Two charges of forgery II were threatened aganst the non minor in question with a court date.

He recieved a court appointed attorney that told him even with everything he had done to sooperate, giving up his right to remain silent, that the DA had built a solid case against him and him alone.  They offered a plea baragin to admit guilt to one account and the other account would be dropped.  Now this is just wrong.  If you are guilty of something then why a plea bargain?  This is a way for our system to "threaten" and "bully" those who have no money for the proper defense into admitting guilt when there is none and closing a case making local authorities look good.  With all of the technology we have today.  With modern day science solving cold cases from years ago, one would think that we would now have a way to revise our system and fix it.  Double Jeopardy is the dumbest rule of court by opinion.  Now that O.J. has been found innocent, he can admitt to murder all he wants without being found guilty in court.  It is time for change.
