Miranda Reduced
 
Yesterday the Supreme Court held that a suspect who never signed the form waiving his Miranda rights, and maintained silence for 3 hours, nevertheless could be questioned (and his eventual ambiguous confession admitted in court) because he failed to assert his rights explicitly. How unfortunate. As we learn more about the staggering frequency of false confessions, the Court reduces protection against them.
