    they'll use this to avoid reading the suspect his Miranda rights. Why is Lindsay Graham being singled out here? The NYT has been running the Miranda rights story since last night.

    •  Isn't there a time limit on it though? (0+ / 0-)

      Eventually he will be read his rights when a reasonable concern for public safety has passed. Of course, "everything changed after 9/11" so reasonable concerns are stretched beyond credibility in our brave nation of never-ending fear.

      •  The only requirement is that he be read ... (0+ / 0-)

        his Miranda rights before he is questioned.  If, for some reason, investigators don't plan to question an arrestee, I don't believe they have to say anything at all.  But then the arraignment judge would inform the person of their rights before proceeding further.
