  • No, we should leave them just as they are.

    Miranda rights are the result of a legal battle, tried and tested for several generations, and the output of the United States Supreme Court. As such, they should not be tampered with, and to do so would be unconstitutional. Miranda rights don't need updating. They are not a new edition of a book. They have served their purpose well and will continue to do so for the life of our country.

  • Not a necessary action

    Our Miranda rights are still current and relevant. Updating these rights would only take the attention of our governing bodies away from important matters at hand such as education, poverty and disparity among social classes. However, as culture rapidly progresses in modern society, there may be a need to update the Miranda rights in the foreseeable future. For now, I believe they are justified in their current state.

  • Rarely an issue

    Denying Miranda rights is only a temporary thing, this wouldn't even be a talking point if not for the recent (very rare) case of this being utilized (which it shouldn't have been.) Overall Miranda rights operate how they should and one isolated incident of somebody making the wrong call isn't enough for us to need to re-assess the system.

  • No we should not.

    Our Miranda rights are important and really do not need to be updated. I hear that the culprit who was caught for the Boston bombs was not read his Miranda rights. They should always be read because that is our right as US citizens. That should always be considered no matter the crime.
