Quote Of The Day

"He is a citizen of the United States, so I say we uphold the laws and the Constitution on citizens. If you are a citizen, you obey the law and follow the Constitution. [Faisal Shahzad -- the accused Times Square bomber] has all the rights under the Constitution. We don't shred the Constitution when it is popular. We do the right thing." -Glenn Beck on Fox and Friends.

I'm tough on Beck -- anyone who is a regular reader knows this. BUT, when the guy is right, he's right. Anyone who says that Faisal Shahzad should not have been Mirandized, or is trying to work around the Miranda laws, is crazy. If a citizen of the United States is not read their Miranda rights, the judge in their trial can throw the case out of court.

Glenn Beck is absolutely correct; if you are an American, you are guaranteed the protection of the Constitution, regardless of the crimes you might be accused of committing.
