Miranda http://wesa.fm en Miranda Rights and the Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect http://wesa.fm/post/miranda-rights-and-boston-marathon-bombing-suspect <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>A great deal of news coverage has been reported about the decision <a href="http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/04/21/178254784/miranda-rights-and-tsarnaev-ashcroft-says-u-s-move-is-the-right-one">to read or not to read</a> the Miranda Rights statement to Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. According to our legal contributor, University of Pittsburgh Law Professor <a href="http://law.pitt.edu/people/full-time-faculty/david-a-harris"><strong>David Harris</strong></a>, much of the coverage has been off base. He joins us to discuss what Miranda rights do, in general, and specifically how they apply to this case. We'll also talk about the current Supreme Court case, Salinas v. Texas, which begs the question, how much protection should we get from our "right to remain silent?"
