    be a public safety exception for Miranda in special circumstances, HOWEVER, the information can only be used to protect the public from immediate danger.

    If the point of this is to protect the public, then protect the public with the information received and don't use it to convict the suspect.  

    •  That's not an exception ;) Under Miranda, (1+ / 0-)

      the Police could ask any question they pleased without reading your rights.

      They just wouldn't be able to use it in court.

      I love you stupid fucking fucks. Now stop poking at the dead cat on the table and get back to the issues.
