Miranda rights & Social networking
December 29, 2012 in Offbeat
I have become disgusted with the use of social network posts made by criminal suspects,prior to the alleged crime being used against them. As soon as you hear about an alleged crime, the lamestream media along with criminal investigators will flood the facts of the crime with comments on the suspects internet behavior. Such as Facebook and other social network posts,web activity,and even to the music and movies they listen to and watch.Often even months or years before the alleged crime.
What I don’t understand is, how can this information can be used against any suspect? What you say can be used against you in a court of law ONLY: if you have first been read your Miranda rights! is this not correct? now i don’t see any Miranda rights within the Facebook or any other social network websites terms of service while creating an account.Nor have I seen any Miranda rights being agreed to as I log into the internet.
We all know its hard to tell someones emotions through a text message. Sarcasm is probably the most misunderstood, as well as sense of humor and so on. And to all of you guys out there,lying to impress the ladies, showing pics of that Lamborghini that’s not really yours, or that house and property you don’t really own. Well, it probably wont be long before the I.R.S. sends you a bill on the taxes you owe on these items. Since according to our government, everything on the internet is true! And what you say and do can and will be used against you in a court of law!
