Re: Obama Legal Team Wants Defendants' Rights Limited
The article states it is about when a defendant has ASKED FOR AN ATTORNEY. The rule is once they invoke their right to an attorney all questioning is supposed to stop. You don't get to go in an say are you sure you still want an attorney? Hey your atty isn't here yet why don't you just tell us what happened.
I'll tell you what, if you ever get arrested, god forbid, you go ahead and tell the cops whatever you want, see how well it works out for you. They'll promise you the world, BECAUSE THEY ARE ALLOWED TO LIE TO GET INFORMATION!!! Then you are left with the consequences.
Let me try to put it in terms you would understand, would you feel comfortable being thrown into a battle against a Delta force team? The Constitution is about fairness and equity, not about letting the police get the upper hand.
