This is one of the first and only interviews given by Eric Holder, Obama's (and your) Attorney General. In his career before his appointment, he published so little it was not possible to get a fix on this guy's POVs. Up till now, he's been a bit of a blank slate, though one can infer he's approved the activities of the Department of Justice, Assistant U.S. Attorneys General, etc. So he comes out of hiding to tell us we no longer need or deserve Miranda warnings? [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNlX_Qa7tXM]YouTube - Eric Holder on Meet The Press - May 9, 2010 - discusses Miranda and other pt 1[/ame] Before you assert this would only apply in case of "public emergencies", ask yourself how hard would it be for any cop to claim he perceived a potential "public emergency"? Does Miranda have value for you, your family, your neighbor's nitwit 14 year old? If so, are you willing to trade that value for a new prosecution tool for Holder et al.? What say you?
