Question
While Miranda warnings must be offered to many individuals who come in contact with police officers, it appears to be the one area of law where there is a presumption of ignorance of the law and police officers are charged with performing an educational role. What are some of the arguments that could be offered both for and against the requirement of warning subjects who must deal with police? If some individuals understand the Miranda warnings without having to have the warnings read to that person, why should the Supreme Court hold that the warnings must be read to everyone to whom they apply? If Miranda had never been decided, would you advocate that a similar warning should be instituted to insure proper police conduct or would no warning be more appropriate?
