They Didn't Read Me My Rights!


Have you ever said that? Have you ever heard someone else say They didn’t read me my rights? What does it mean? What are my rights? When you say “my rights” you are probably talking about the “rights” that are read in the Miranda warning. The United States Supreme Court talked about a case, Arizona v. Miranda. From this case came the “Miranda warning” or “Miranda rights” or just “my rights.” If you have ever been arrested you heard your rights read. If you have ever watched a police show you have heard someone read the rights to some poor soul. You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to an attorney. These rights become very important. Let us look at some places where you could use or abuse your rights.

THEY DIDNT READ ME MY RIGHTS! I have the right to remain silent! A police officer could arrest you while you are standing in front of a sign that says “Drugs for Sale.” After taking the drugs he proceeds to ask questions like “did you have drugs?” or “where did you get the drugs?” You have the right to answer no questions. A smart person will not answer questions. Your homework is to repeat after me “I refuse to answer questions without my attorney.” Look in the mirror and say this three times or until it become habit. Answer NO QUESTIONS without your lawyer. Even if They Didn’t Read Me My Rights I can always remain silent.

THEY DIDNT READ ME MY RIGHTS! How can I mess up my rights? You can get arrested, the police ask you questions and you start talking. You answer their questions because they are nice and say “if you will just be honest we will not arrest you.” You can believe them. NOT! You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to run your mouth and write your own arrest warrant. Use your brain and close your mouth! You have the right to remain silent! Use it!

You have the right to have an attorney during questioning. Use your right! An attorney cannot change the fact that the police saw you selling cocaine on the school house steps. An attorney can look over the facts and charges and give you a professional opinion on what to do. You have the right to an attorney but you must specifically claim your right. Your homework assignment was “I refuse to answer any questions without my attorney.” DO NOT ask the policeman if you need a lawyer – that is not enough to claim your right. DO NOT answer some questions then try to decide if you need a lawyer. Begin the meeting with the policeman with “I refuse to answer any questions without my attorney.”

Just because THEY DIDNT READ ME MY RIGHTS does not mean you do not have rights. I have my rights! Yes you do! Do not give them up. You have the right to remain silent. Use your brain, close your mouth. You have the right to an attorney. If you do not have an attorney now, call my office 615-254-1471. If you need me on a weekend or evening text to 615-516-3812.
