I applaud the Supreme Court's decision to scrap the "Miranda warning" nonsense ("Supreme Court says suspects must tell police they want to be silent during interrogation," June 1). If it was needed in the past, it is needed no more. With its ubiquitous appearance in several decades worth of TV police and lawyer shows, I'm willing to bet that if a poll were conducted, asking each respondent to complete these two sentences often heard on the TV, "You have the right to remain . . ." and "Oh say, can you see . . .," many more people would be able to complete the first than they would the second, and could go on to explain the rest of the warning.

Nothing says Halloween like a party in a graveyard in one of television's scariest cities. Coming off of the best reveal in "Pretty Little Liars" history during the summer finale, it was time for a special hour dedicated to picking up where the show left off in… Ravenswood! The girls dress up for the Halloween party of their lives, complete with a few scary twins, an eerie warning from the mean Mrs. Grunwald, a house that seems a little more than haunted and a mysterious man (who is Ezra)

MAYBE YOU don't have the right to remain silent. Or to have an attorney present during police questioning. And maybe police can aggressively press you to talk even if you're gravely wounded or on your death bed. Of course, in nondemocratic nations, that's standard operating procedure. Police are in charge -- and citizens are at their mercy. But for the second time in three years, the U.S. Supreme Court is considering a challenge to its landmark Miranda decision, which protects people in this country from unbridled coercive interrogation by the police.

Here is an edited excerpt of an editorial from the Boston Globe, which was published Wednesday.The Supreme Court should back President Clinton's call to protect the Miranda rights of suspects. To some eyes, Miranda is an escape hatch for criminals.But this spin ignores a distinguished history. In 1966 the Supreme Court, in Miranda vs. Arizona, pointed to case law that has repeatedly endorsed the right, embodied in the Fifth Amendment, of individuals not to incriminate themselves.In 1968 Congress passed a law that muddied the issue.

BECAUSE of the tremendous media coverage of notorious crimes these days, serious thought is being given to re-wording the Miranda ruling that police must recite to suspects.This is a draft now being circulated among law enforcement agencies:"You have the right to remain silent or, if you choose, you can go on the 'Larry King Show,' 'Today', 'Good Morning America,' or 'Hard Copy.'"You have the right to an attorney, as well as outside legal experts such as Alan Dershowitz or F. Lee Bailey, who will explain on 'Nightline' what your attorney's defense strategy should have been.

Washington.--HOW SHARPER than a serpent's tooth was conservatives' pain when Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote a 6-2 ruling last week that widened the right of criminal suspects to counsel.Conservatives' only consolation was a characteristically stinging dissent from Justice Anthony Scalia (joined by Chief Justice William Rehnquist). But even this showed how completely the 1966 Miranda decision itself has become constitutionally uncontroversial.In 1986, Robert Minnick and another prisoner escaped from a Mississippi jail, broke into a mobile home seeking guns, and killed the owner and a friend.

WASHINGTON -- "Miranda warnings" seem to have become a permanent fixture not only in daily police life but also in television and movie dramas. But that is not the way Antonin Scalia and Paul G. Cassell would have it, and they just might get their way.For years, Scalia, a Supreme Court justice, and Cassell, a University of Utah law professor and a one-time law clerk to Scalia on a lower court, have worked -- not in tandem, but in common purpose -- to...

WASHINGTON -- The Clinton administration came to the defense yesterday of the Supreme Court's controversial 1966 Miranda decision, arguing that Congress had no power to tell courts to accept confessions by criminals who had not been given "Miranda warnings" about their rights.In a case that appears headed for the Supreme Court, the Justice Department asked the full 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., to reconsider and scuttle a ruling last month by three of its members. That decision said that under a 1968 law passed by Congress, voluntary confessions can be admitted in federal cases even if a Miranda warning was not given.

On March 6, 2008, William Nibblett was stabbed to death in his own home in Pokomoke City. A Worcester County Circuit Court jury convicted Charles Robert Phillips of first-degree murder and armed robbery and sentenced him to life in prison. But on Friday, the state's highest court sent the case back to trial with a blistering rebuke of local police and sheriff's deputies who the justices said ignored the suspect's request for an attorney and wrongfully kept him talking into a confession.

Country music might have a history of making its women play by the rules. But Miranda Lambert has made a career of speaking her mind. Lambert's effortless ability to break your heart one moment (the Grammy-winning ballad "The House That Built Me") and find glee in revenge the next ("Kerosene," a song about Lambert burning down her cheating boyfriend's house, would make her hero Loretta Lynn proud) that makes her one of country music's most vital talents. "Four the Record," her latest album released in November, finds the 28-year-old newlywed (she married fellow country star Blake Shelton last May)

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court said yesterday that it would take up the Bush administration's plea to limit the Miranda ruling and allow the use of evidence that is found after police fail to warn a suspect fully of his right to remain silent. The new case, to be heard in the fall, could affect everyday encounters between police and crime suspects and witnesses. Since the Supreme Court's 1966 decision in Miranda vs. Arizona, police have been told that they must warn suspects and witnesses of their right to remain silent and their right to consult a lawyer.

The death of a man who was run over and killed by a piece of machinery five years ago has now been ruled a homicide by the state medical examiner's office, overturning an earlier finding that the death was an accident. However, Baltimore County authorities said they have no plans to file charges. Police and prosecutors from as many as four jurisdictions independently investigated the death and came to the same conclusion: that the driver of the Bobcat front-loader did not see Joseph A. Miranda when the machine crushed the 19-year-old with its wheels.

After a couple of slow weeks, this one is again packed with events and concerts. The big one is Artscape, which lasts kicks off Friday with performers in three different stages. Matisyahu, E Major, and Fantasia are the headliners this year. But that same night, there's also lots of other Artscape events that aren't concerts - like the Nina Hagen ballet tribute at the 1982 stage. And, unrelated to Artscape, there's a Cass McCombs show at Golden West Cafe. Elsewhere this week: Soundgarden, Miranda Lambert, Pat Benetar, the Get 'Em Mamis, and a Stillwater Ales beer launch at Brewer's.
