Will Cops Be Required to Tell You Explicitly That You Have a Right To Have A Lawyer Present During Any Questioning?

This is an older article, and the court did not decide to make the cops tell you more when they are drilling you.  No matter what the courts change or don't , always assert "I choose to remain silent and I want to see a lawyer."  Then, say nothing else. Cops don't have to give a Miranda warning, anyway, until you're arrested and they want to further question you.  Know Your Rights!

Miranda rights warning could get rewrite

Supreme Court weighs whether to make some parts more explicit

U.S. Soldier Imprisoned for Releasing Video Of U.S. Military Slaying of Iraqi Civilians: VIDEO & PETITION included

Bradley Manning is the U.S. soldier now in a US military prison in Kuwait who has been arrested and charged with two violations for releasing classified information (the Wikileaks "Collateral Murder" video) and facing 54 years in prison. He is being held in isolation from the outside world - with no contact with his civilian attorneys working to defend him.

If the allegations are true, Bradley Manning is a hero for bringing to light the realities of the crimes being committed in the U.S. occupation.

We call for his immediate release and that his attorneys be allowed to talk to him.
