50th Anniversary of Miranda’s Decision
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
The origin of many proverbs have been obscured by the mists of time….the phrase “Silence is Golden”, in various versions, have dated back to the time of Ancient Egypt. In our 20th-21st century modern U.S. history, this phrase has acquired extra protection.
There’s much that we routinely take for granted in our civil society. On this particular day of 50th Anniversary of Miranda’s Decision (aka Miranda Warning), please allow me to share with you the page of the manuscript written by Chief Justice Earl Warren regarding the Miranda v. Arizona case, below, along with comments from Arizona State University adjunct law professor Gary Stuart, who’s written a book about the case on the history of Miranda Warning, Miranda: The Story of America’s Right To Remain Silent.
The 50th anniversary of one of the most famous arrests in American history happened in March (according to wikipedia, it was argued from Feb. 28-March 1, 1966, and decided on June 13, 1966) of 1966. On March 13th, 1963, Ernesto Miranda was arrested for rape, kidnapping and robbery in Phoenix without being informed of any of his rights. That led to a United States Supreme Court ruling requiring all being arrested to be read their “Miranda Rights.” Arizona State University adjunct law professor Gary Stuart, who’s written a book about the case, talks about the history of the Miranda Warning in the video above.
