Blankity Blank

Today, I finally got to conduct my first questioning of a suspect, who had been arrested in connection with a car theft. As I recited the Miranda warning to him, my mind went totally blank, and after a few seconds, he sarcastically continued the speech for me. FML

I find it hilarious that he knows it well enough to recite under pressure yet its your job to remember it and you mindblanked.

It's all to do with his inexperience, not exactly his fault for afew nerves...

What's funny is that he knows it so well because he's been in jail so much.

@34 I thought it was because he carefully studied civil rights on his quest to become a lawyer. Thanks for clarifying though.

Who doesn't know the Miranda rights You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney, if you cannot afford one one will be appointed to you by the state at no cost to you

43, I think 34 was talking about the guy he was questioning. I thought the same thing. Lol

53, sorry but 43 was being sarcastic.

46 - We have the right to remain silent. What some people lack, though, is the capacity :3

78 - OP is, obviously, either a detective or a uniformed cop, and both are very difficult jobs where you have a lot to learn, memorize, and are constantly under pressure. Can't really blame the guy for going blank.

Sure everyone knows it, but OP is a newbie cop, is probably nervous, and understandably blanked. You've never had a bit of cerebroflatulence under pressure?

YDI for two reasons: 1: it's only 4 sentences that anyone who has ever watched a cop show could probably recite. 2: they are rights, not warnings. If you don't know the difference, you shouldn't be an officer.

You don't know what you are talking about. The phrase "Miranda warnings" is commonly used and perfectly appropriate.

The Wikipedia entry (and most other entries I've seen of it in law books), say Miranda Warning (also sometimes known as Miranda Rights). It's also sometimes called 'being read your rights' or 'being given your rights'. It comes from a case of Ernesto Miranda vs. State of Arizona, basically about a man who was convicted because of self-incriminating confessions he made while he was questioned by police, without knowing his fifth and sixth amendment rights. I probably couldn't recite the rights off of the top of my head, but I'm a Canadian who doesn't really watch a lot of cop shows. Haven't you ever had a moment where you've gone blank on something you're supposed to remember? Happens all the time. (I get it pretty often because I have Lupus and that likes to mess around with your memory, I have trouble remembering names a lot).

43, I do not like your humor it is boring.

@96 Damn, there goes my self confidence. You know, there is a button for such an event. It's shaped like a thumb, pointing downwards, and saves you the trouble of typing ;).

I know that shit too its on tv all the time

Hmm. My memory goes blank under pressure due to a variety of self diagnosed twenty first century mental disorders that originate from the inability, or rather, unwillingness to pay attention to things that aren't particularly interesting. Therefore, I do not remember things that are simply stated in my general direction unless I find it interesting enough to supplement the usually useless imaginative scenario that is going through my head at a particular moment. So ha! My inability to remember things is justified too, right? And now I've lost my train of thought, and am wondering why I am even posting this in the first place, but I've already written too many sentences and I doubt anyone will actually read this comment anyway.

Yes, that's the point of the thing, well done.

"You have the right to.... To..... Suck my dick mother ******!"

Did you just say you have the right to be an attorney, well technically you do it's a free country.

We are a free country as in we are a sovereign nation: no country can make us their colony. You do have the right to become an attorney, but it has nothing to do with the declaration of independence, constitution, etc.

58.... It was a quote from "21 Jump Street"... That's probably one of my favourite part from that movie. :)

58- look who just got out of government class

You have the right attorney?

Oops didn't see that everyone else made that joke...

That movie was so funny. Channing Tatum and the fat guy are hilarious.

The whole movie was a blur after Channing Tatum told me that he would beat off my dick...

You have the right to suck my dick ************

You have the right to become an attorney.

"Sir, if I have to suck someone's dick, I will... But I'd rather not."


Anything you say or do used as a flotation device?

First thing I thought of while reading this lol

Am I the only one who immediately thought about 21 Jump Street? Edit: Sorry 2 beat me to it.

Internet, do we forgive him? I vote yes because freedom.

You don't say? I'll forgive #5, but you will suffer my thumb's wrath!

Yeah I didn't read the comments. Maybe that should be a pre-requisite before commenting. Oh well burry me!

They will, 33, they will. But I'm gonna give you a break cuz my favorite number is 33. I can't thumb it up but I won't thumb it down. How's that?

Could be worse, u could have forgotten why he was in there to begin with

This reminded me of 21 jump street too oh wait...

Its okay it was your first time just practice a little more and next time you'll have it for sure
