More judicial misconduct or just more Miranda madness
Think Supreme Court appointments don't matter to ordinary Americans? Here is an example of what the Warren court's excessive concern for criminal's rights has wrought:
The confession of a man charged with kidnapping, raping and killing 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford isn't admissible in court, but the discovery of her body can be used as evidence, a judge ruled Friday.A killers confession should not be thrown out because of a procedural error. I contend the proper remedy to police or prosecution error or misconduct in most cases is either additional training or possibly criminal charges in the most eggregious of cases.
John Evander Couey, a 47-year-old convicted sex offender, gave the confession to detectives, but also told them that he wanted to consult a lawyer. He wasn't given the opportunity to do so.
Jessica Marie Lunsford was found kneeling and clutching a stuffed animal, hands tied with speaker wire and fingers poking through the garbage bags in which she was buried alive in March 2005. Two days earlier, Couey told detectives he kidnapped, raped and killed the 9-year-old girl.
