I meeen take the 14 day part and how they can question you after that amount of time has passed .It only says you have to be arested ONCE then 14 days later all rights are OFF and this could easly be use after that ANY TIME thye want to question you for ANY THING.
lets see what you have to say about this
Police can now attempt to question a suspect who asked for a lawyer — once
the person has been released from custody for at least two weeks — without
violating the person's constitutional rights and without having to repeat the Miranda warning.
The high court said for the first time that a suspect's
request for a lawyer is good for only 14 days after the
person is released from police custody.

I know, I know *Headesk* I am just not understanding the lack of outcry about this.
You have to break your silence to say I am invoking my right to remain silent? This is only the beginning of the end. This will lead into it being law that we must answer the questions of law enforcement.
Come on, we have the right not to remain silent about our disgust of losing our right to remain silent. Loving the apathy here people.
4nsicphd are you saying coercive measures have ended then?
No this is definitely a taking away of rights.

Again this has nothing to do with loss of rights, once placed under arrest or in interview prior arrest you are read your rights. Once released your rights expire, this 14 day is actually and extension because under normal circumstance they would expire the second you walked out on your own period. After questioning is over and any time after you leave the officer may have new information about a case and may want to ask you some more questions this is legal at any time with out rights being read, only in the case of an arrest is your rites ever read to you, and if so determined at some point that you are the wrong party you are set free, or you get an attorney and so on. Again your rights are only brought into play once placed under arrest, if you are ever brought in for questioning it is your choice to answerer or to leave if not placed under arrest, they will use this tactic to get info from you especially if they think your guilty, so never answerer any questions just simple get up to leave and at that time it forces there hand to either let you go or place you under arrest and then read you your rights. But again once set free, your rights expire period this 14 day extension is a good thing because no other state has this to protect you. Example I let you go and a few hours latter question you again as long as I don’t place you under arrest I do not have to read you your rights. But you give me information that leads me to believe you are guilty of something at that time I can arrest you read you your rights and use the information you just now gave me prior being put under arrest to help convict. It’s all legal mumbo jumbo as they say. Bottom line never give out information about anyone at anytime period and if ever put under arrest no matter what for get a lawyer and shut your mouth.
Ok my bad I see that they do not have to read your rights to again, but this is only for general questioning again they would have to place you under arrest in order to have to read you your rights. This is a little trick the way it is worded but my statements still stand. Ask if your under arrest if not walk away, if so then they must read your rights again innless its with in the 14 day time frame. I can understand this, because anyone whom has been arrested knows they want you for something, and by then would have gotten a lawyer or knows enough to keep there mouth shut.
