1966 Miranda V. Arizona

“which required police to inform arrestees of their right to remain silent, that anything they said might be used against them, and that they had a right to have an attorney present during questioning.” (page 238)

This court case decision was a major decision that greatly impacts the way law enforcement officials work today.  Most of us know and joke about our Miranda rights from the television shows and movies we see about police officers.  However, people may take for granted our Miranda Rights which aren’t guaranteed in other nations around the world.  If arrestees are not read their miranda rights by a specific period during their arrest process, it may be used for their freedom during court.
