This guy was not the brightest bulb in the pack, in fact I would say his lamp is burned out!

Of course the new SC Justice sotomayer sees this differently and can't fathom having to say you want a lawyer. And this is the best obama could come up with for the SC? GEEZ!
In an attempt to remain civil in regards to Sotomayer, "counterintuitive"? It's called letting your stance be known. Silence is not a response to a question, nor is it a method of relaying information.

Just how, if the suspect does not speak, are the police to know they wish to obtain a lawyer? Write it on a piece of paper? What if they are illiterate..... no, no I'm not going down that path.

Sotomayer needs to do a reality check. Really soon.

What changed?? Just because your precious liberal judges disagreed doesn't make the decision wrong. If a suspect is informed of thier rights and are an adult, then "anything they say can and will be used against them in a court of law". Why is this decision a bad thing?? Lose the kneejerk anti-conservative reaction and explain what the problem is with the decision.
