Today's Washington Post features and article by Richard Willing describing the FBI's role in the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in
Miranda of "You have right to remain silent...." fame. While its easy to oversell the influence of any particular party in any ruling by the high court, I think that it is not too much say that the FBI's existing practice of giving warnings may have not made the ruling feel as revolutionary as it seemed to many at the time. Regardless, one takeaway from the article is that despite the warnings, suspects routinely waive them and confess (correctly or falsely). The piece is an interesting footnote to history and worth a read.
