Miranda Warning

Statue of Liberty
I will use my Statue of Liberty postcard to mark the US Supreme Court ruling in Miranda v. Arizona forty seven years ago on June 13, 1966. It requires that the police must inform suspects of their rights before questioning them. The purpose is to ensure that the accused is aware of, and reminded of, their rights under the U.S. Constitution; and that they know they can invoke them at any time during the interrogation.

The postcard was made using one of my photos at Photo Center.
