Miranda followup issue
Miranda v. Arizona generally requires that certain warnings be given before questioning a person who is in police custody. But how about a prisoner who is serving a sentence, and thus in custody 24/7, who taken into a room and questioned? Are Miranda warnings required then? Today, in Howes v. Fields, the US Supreme Court said nope.
This really reinforces the concept of "don't ever talk to the police."

Wow, even the liberals joined the opinion at least in part.
